Prishtina International Film Festival is the most important film event that is held in Kosovo. Vanessa Redgrave is one of the festival’s dearest friends. She supported the first edition by attending and leading the opening ceremony. She is the president of the Honorary Board of the Festival and supports the festival by promoting it in various international circles.
The festival consists of four competition programs: the European film competition program, the Balkan film competition program (also known as Honey and Blood Cinema), the Middle-length competition program (comprised of 25-60 min length films) and as of this year, the Documentary film program will also be competitive. The latter promotes documentaries from around the world that revolve around subjects related to human rights and the environment. All of the above-mentioned programs are open to the whole world. PriFest also has non-competitive programs, like the Focus program, which promotes cinematography of a specific country or director, and the Let It Be program, which is a result of cooperation with Outfest LA, an LGBTI film festival.
This program aims to raise awareness and promote tolerance towards the LGBTI community in Kosovo by offering more knowledge, information and understanding through cinema and feature films. The festival is honored to have the programmers of Outfest LA as curators of this program. Last but not least is the The Special Screenings program, which promotes winners of prestigious festivals like Cannes FF, Berlinale, Toronto, Venice or Oscar winners, giving the Kosovar audience the unique opportunity to see art house films from around the world.
