ENFF On Tour 2018

Eastern Neighbours Film Festival (ENFF) presents a selection of recent and high quality films from East and Southeast Europe; countries with relatively small, but powerful film industries. The festival focuses on productions which would often otherwise not be screened in theaters in the Netherlands. The carefully compiled program provides insight into the reality of the cultural, political and socio-economic conditions in the region, and the development of its local younger and older talents. The program includes feature films, documentaries, short films and animations.  It connects different genres and themes; from current developments in cinema, to historical specialties; from experimental documentaries to art house films. The festival as well engages current debates and questions regarding film aesthetics, ethics, social issues, film theory and artistic forms.

The ENFF annually takes place in November in Filmhuis, The Hague, and goes On Tour in Amsterdam (Rialto, de Balie), Rotterdam (Kino) and Utrecht (‘t Hoogt).

Yugoslavia, How Ideology Moved Our Collective Body
a film by Marta Popivoda
2013, 62 min, Serbia / France / Germany

Q&A with director Marta Popivoda and dramaturge Ana Vujanović

Yugoslavia, How Ideology Moved Our Collective Body is a research-based essay film that deals with the question of how ideology performs itself in public space through mass performances. The author collected and analyzed film and video footage from the period of Yugoslavia (1945 – 2000), focusing state performances (youth work actions, May Day parades, celebrations of the Youth Day, etc.) as well as counter-demonstrations (’68, student and civic demonstrations in the ‘90s, 5th October revolution, etc.). Going back through the images, the film traces how communist ideology was gradually exhausted through the changing relations between the people, ideology, and the state.
