Occupied Cinema (2018), dir. Senka Domanović, doc, 87’

Since the theme of this year’s AFV edition is Non-Aligned Movement, its role and praxis in the socio-political context of the second half of the 20th century, I will focus my presentation on the significance of community and solidarity in the moments of crisis, whether global ol local ones, but also how much (and why) it is important for a filmmaker to recognize the actual moment, whether he or she will use it for creation or as a frame for creativity, and what are the differences between those two legitimate auteur positions.

Senka Domanović – Born in 1982 in Belgrade, Yugoslavia. She graduated film and TV directing at the Faculty of Dramatic Arts in Belgrade with the omnibus film “October”. For years she has been working as an independent film professional on film and television projects of various formats. In addition to this experience, her artistic development and personal maturation moved in the direction of an engaged film, whether it was an author’s or a special-purpose film. With her debut documentary “Occupied Cinema” she won several awards, the film was screened at numerous local and international film festivals. Her short feature film “We Did Not Start a Fire” was premiered at the “Free Zone Film Festivan” in Belgrade in 2021. She is currently working on the development of a screenplay for a feature film. She currently lives in Belgrade.
