September 19, Bitola – At tonight’s event, the mayor of Bitola, Natasha Petrovska, spoke of the fact that the “Manaki Brothers” festival keeps up the pulse of the city of Bitola. “In the city that sees events happening every day, which constantly lives with the culture events, the city which has kept the art since the time of antiquity, from Heraclea to each façade in our city. Exactly in this city one can pack a series of life situations and they can represent a motive for the following cinematography editions. This is all a deep motive to keep up the festival, even in such conditions which we are in now, such as the pandemic. This is all an additional motive for us also to leave something for the generations to come”, said Petrovska, also congratulating this year’s awards recipients, in her words, “with much more faith in the next one”.
