MINISTRY OF CULTURE OF MONTENEGRO
Ministry of Culture of Montenegro defined domestic cinematography as special strategic interest and one of priorities in development of Montenegrin culture. In that context, Ministry is working on creating sustainable model for this sector by developing sector’s legislation, furthering existing institutional framework and integrating Montenegrin cinematography in European programs. Between the last and this year’s festival presentation, thanks to the profound support of the Ministry of Culture, Montenegro was enriched with two feature films and some shorts and documentaries. We also participated in four regional projects as co-producers. During 2012 Montenegro became member of two organizations: European Audiovisual Observatory and European Film Promotion and that opened the new horizons towards cooperation and strengthening the ties with European audiovisual sector.
