Bosifest as significant cultural base for the region

09. maj 2013.


What movie has left the strongest impression on you that we should  tape the label "must see"?

I would single out two Canadian films: "Last Flight", directed by Yves Langlois (grand prix BOSIFEST 2011.), very educative tale about a man who moved human frontier and did not give up in situations where most of us would not have persevered. So is "Step Up" by Thomas Wormser (crystal award for best director BOSI fest 2012), the young and promising dancer who was in a car accident lost his foot. But that did not stop him achieve his dream and with a lot of effort he managed to triumph on the dance floor. These stories should be stimulus and inspiration in life, for all of us.

What criteria were used in evaluating the films?

In evaluating the films, basic principle was and is  the artistic quality.






For nine years you were on the board of IETM, Europe's largest cultural network that brings together about 500 similar institutions as DOB. What are your experiences? How much attention is paid to festivals such as BOSIFEST and how much such festivals are enriching cultural offerings of a city?

Programs availability for people with disabilities is one of the very important subjects in the IETM network. It is impossible to talk about multiculturalism and the impact that art should play in society. and that does not take into account the availability of programs for all citizens. BOSIFEST is important program not only for the cultural life of our city, but also an important cultural foundation for the region, in terms of events involved in promoting equality and breaking down prejudices regarding people with disabilities. It is very important that BOSIFEST sends a message that integration of people with disabilities is necessary in every society, but also possible, and to introduce public with their needs, rights and status. Also, looking at those films made by people with disabilities, we see that they can be equally successful working in film industry, and there stories and experiences brought to life in the film, teaches us that nothing is impossible if there is a will, solidarity and support of the people and society.

Interview with Lisa Pram co-author of Chromosome 5

BOSIFEST 2013 GRAND PRIX was awarded to the film Chromosome 5 (filmmaker: Maria Ripoll & Lisa Pram, 2013, Spain). This is story of loss and encounter. Andrea loses a small part of her chromosome 5, but her mother has to find a new way of seeing and accepting.

Where did the idea to make this film come from? Why did you choose Andrea and her mother as the main characters of your film? Maria and Andrea and I met at the entrance of school and Maria noticed Andrea´s different ways/allure. We inmediately started talking and getting to know each other. At one point I gave her my diary to read and the doc-film is based on this diary. Andrea is the main character because she is Irreplaceable, special, beautiful and a great actor that loves to work in film and also photo-shootings.

You have taken part in numerous festivals around the world. What were the reactions of the audience?
Strong emotional feedback. We are very happy and thankful to get the story out there and the reactions are positive and great.
