SNOWE visit to Avala film studios

In June 1946, the government of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia created the State Committee of Cinematography, in order to replace the provisional Film Enterprise of the SFRY. The Committee set out to establish film production companies in the various constituent states of Yugoslavia: the first and the largest of those was Avala Film, in the Socialist Republic of Serbia’s capital Belgrade, which was founded on 15 July. The company was located in the future complex of Filmski Grad, which the Committee had only begun planning.

In 1947, Avala Film produced the first feature film made in postwar Yugoslavia, Vjekoslav Afrić’s Slavica.[3] Until 2000, the studio participated in the creation of 400 documentaries, 200 feature films and 120 co-productions with foreign companies; its pictures won more than 200 awards in various festivals.

After the Breakup of Yugoslavia, the studio was partially privatized and 51% of its shares were sold to a company called Yugoexport, while the rest were retained by Avala Film’s management. Since the mid-1990, it has produced few films, and its last one – Shadows of Memories – was released in 2000. The studio is facing financial troubles, and was threatened with liquidation after Yugoexport was declared bankrupt. Since 2005, plans to fully privatize it were proposed, but not carried out. In June 2011, the studio was announced to be bankrupt, after accumulating a debt of 111,000,000 Serbian dinar. In early 2012, the Serbian government announced plans to revitalize Avala Film but assistance never materialized. Negotiations are still on going with hoper that it will be solved for Film Makers best.


SNOWE guests visited Studio 4 and 6 – one of the biggest. Hosts for this visit was Zoran Jankovic who is running on production ‘Kosutnjak film’ nearby, and women film director Mila Trajlic – director to Cinema Komunisto.

SNOWE – Belgrade from Danube and Sava perspective by night

SNOWE arrange for moviemaker from Sweden one round trip from water perspective… and after all Belgrade still has a lovley living nightlife – some idea why? For me who lived in Belgrade even before ’90 – Belgrade had same habits before Yugoslavia’s break! Here is some possible answer.

During the ’90s, Serbia went through the roughest patch in its recent history. The break-up of Yugoslavia, civil war, UN sanctions, hyperinflation, and high unemployment made sure that the only entertainment Belgraders had back in those days was the one they created themselves. Something changed in people’s minds and – despite all the hardships of living in the capital of a nation that’s was falling apart – the local nightlife industry boomed, taking clubbing to an art form. Everyone absolutely loved it.

The ’99 NATO bombing forced Belgraders to take their fun even more seriously. Faced with everyday threat of losing our lives, we starting having huge outdoor concerts in city squares and on bridges, while some of the most famous night clubs started working even during daylight hours.

Today, Belgrade may be many years behind other European capitals when it comes to economic, industrial, and scientific development, but it’s literally light years ahead when it comes to nightlife. The Belgrade clubbing industry is better organized and has more to offer than any other out there. Every night of the week, there are countless different clubs with different styles and with different kinds of music where you can go. It may be hard to believe, but all the clubs which have the capacity of 300 to 500 people are basically full every night of the week.
