Interview with Kineret Hay-Gillor, winner for best director for film “How much love” on Bosifest 2015

13. April 2016.

It's been almost a year since your visit to Belgrade. What impression you brought with you from here?

I found Belgrade amazing. I'm not sure if this impression was because of the city itself or because of the remarkable experience that I've had there during the festival... I found it to be a modern city but also soaked with history and legacy. The people were so nice to me and the food was so great!

Interview with Evgeny Golynkin, winner of Bosifest 2015

05. April 2016.

What are your`s impressions from last year`s festival where you get the grand prix? How did you like Belgrade?

The  festival itself is one of the strongest impression. Not only the films that were shown but the fact that the festival like this exists. For me, Darko will always be the person with strong personality, dignified behavior and a very wise attitude towards life.
