Belgrade (official) premiere

It is an honor for us to announce that the 61st Belgrade Documentary and Short Film Festival will present TITO ON ICE in Dom Omladine on 3 April at 21.00, a very special occasion since this is also one of the locations where the movie was shot in 2003 and 2004.

Although this will be the premiere of the official version, Belgrade was actually the scene of the very first public preview of the rough cut of the film, a legendary work-in-progress presentation which took place jointly in Belgrade’s Cinema Rex and in the club Elektrika in Pancevo in 2010, arranged by the NOVO DOBA festival of non-aligned comics.
