The laureate of this year’s 38th edition of ICFF “Manaki Brothers”, the great French cinematographer Pierre Lhomme, is staying in Macedonia. Immediately after the arrival at the airport in Skopje, Pierre Lhomme and his wife Rene expressed their desire to find more about the country and its culture.

They visited the church “St. Spas” and saw the icons from the 15th and 16th century, as well as the iconostasis. Afterwards the guests from France strolled through the Old Bazaar in Skopje, while Lhomme’s wife fancied the jewelry from the Macedonian goldsmiths.

On the way to Bitola the genius cinematographer’s eye noticed the enchantingly beautiful scenery. The team of the festival greeted the guests in front of the hotel “Epinal” in Bitola, where they also received gifts. The giant of the French and world cinematography, Pierre Lhomme, said that he is impressed by the Macedonian cultural tradition and by the country that celebrates the work of cinematographers.
