This year’s “DukaFest” is organized as a true several days long student film festival. It takes place in old multiplex “Kozara” between 13th and 15th of November 2009. This year we are organizing it under the “KROV”, a non-profit non-governmental organization for stimulus and development of culture. The members of “KROV” are mainly students of Academy of Arts in Banja Luka, as are other young artists from out town. We would like to give our thanks to Academy of Arts and Student Parliament of Banja Luka for their contribution to the festival.
DUKAFEST was organized after the early demise of our friend and colleague Duško Dukić “Duka”, a student of Film and television directing at the Academy of Arts in Banja Luka (AABL) , a drummer of a band “Guttenberg’s press”, and a employee of Radio-television of Republic of Srpska. Initiative for the fest was made by his friends, also students at Academy of Arts.
We call all students that make movies during their studies to apply for the 3rd international student film festival “DukaFest”.
