This year, the twenty-seventh edition of the Palić European Film Festival has been postponed due to new measures by the Government of the Republic of Serbia that ban gatherings. The previously announced term was from August 8 to 14, and the new date will be announced later in accordance with the development of the epidemiological situation in the country.
Miroslav Mogorović, program director of the Palić European Film Festival, on the postponement of the previously announced date for the event, stated: „Due to new measures to prevent the spread of the epidemic, we are forced to change the date of our festival. We have finished our part of the work, we have a great program, and the films have been agreed and classified into program units. After the improvement of the epidemiological situation, we will announce a new term. We are sure that we will enable viewers to enjoy movies under the stars this summer, with the application of all preventive measures and social distancing. We are aware that the citizens faced with all the challenges brought by the pandemic need not only the festival, but also all the cultural events that can be organized in these circumstances. This also showed great interest in the events on the Summer Stage in this short period of respite during June and July. Cultural events are important for encouraging and raising the spirit of citizens, which is certainly an important factor in the healing process. We hope that our festival will soon make life easier for all film lovers.”
