Asghar Farhadi holding workshops at Serbian festival
The 7th Kustendorf International Film and Music Festival in Serbia is currently hosting workshops by the acclaimed Iranian director Asghar Farhadi.
Entitled “Human Relations Core of Cinema”, the workshop is held during the festival, which runs until January 23.
The French star of Farhadi’s latest movie “The Past”, Bérénice Bejo, is the head of the jury of the festival.
Bejo won the Palme d’Or for best actress at the 66th annual Cannes Film Festival for her role in “The Past”.
Farhadi’s “A Separation” won an Oscar, a Golden Globe and a French César for best language foreign film earlier in 2012 as well as Berlin’s Golden Bear in 2011.
Drvengrad, also known as Kustendorf and Mecavnik, is a traditional village that the Serbian film director Emir Kusturica built for his film “Life Is a Miracle” in the Zlatibor District near the city of Uzice, two hundred kilometers southwest of Serbia's capital, Belgrade.
Since 2008, Drvengrad has hosted the annual Küstendorf Film and Music Festival, which showcases films and music from all around the world as well as a competition program for student short films.
