September 19, Bitola – The director of the “Manaki Brothers”, Gena Teodosievska, spoke on behalf of the festival, saying that the next edition of the festival is already in preparations.

“We are preparing a high-quality programme to invite film artists who will be the real heroes of the new pictures, to be our guests and visitors of our whole country, the region, as it was in the last couple of years. I would like to thank everyone who loves the festival, who supports it, and who supports the film art, as much as it is interesting, as much as it is, maybe, complex, but you always try to enter its picture as thought you are part of it. I very much miss, and I believe we all do, those eight festival days full of adrenaline where we run from one cinema hall to another. I know that we will be telling our guests about this whole year on the next edition this following year, as we welcome them here in Bitola, and as they are running around from the Centre for Culture, to the Small Hall, to the Big Hall, to the Magaza, to the Patio, and to the new Cinema Manaki, which the Municipality of Bitola has, after all, managed to build. My dear friends, I would like to thank you very much that for this one hour, this precious hour for our small team, you have been with us”, said Teodosievska.
