Milcho Manchevski to receive special award Golden Camera 300 in Bitola


International cinematographers’ film festival “Manaki Brothers” will present this year’s special award Golden Camera 300 for outstanding contribution in world film art to Macedonian director and screenwriter Milcho Manchevski.

The history of Macedonia and its cinematography turned into a new direction in Venice, when the prestigious “Golden Lion” went into Manchevski’s hands and even more on the day when renowned actor Jeremy Irons uttered his name and the country he comes from at the 1995 Oscars.

Manchevski, 57, graduated at the Skopje-based Faculty of Philosophy and later at the Department of Cinema and Photography within the Southern Illinois University. He is the author of six feature films, TV, short and documentary films, and music videos. He teaches at the Feirstein Graduate School at Brooklyn College of the City University of New York, VGIK in Moscow, EICTV in Cuba and the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University.

The premiere of Manchevski’s latest short film “The End of Time” will be screened at the Manaki Brothers festival on Saturday.
