The inaugural Balkan Nights Film Festival will take place from 10-15 December 2018 at selected rooftop bars in the centre of Melbourne, Australia. A pool of haunting, beautiful and uncompromising films and music videos from all Balkan nations will screen beneath the summer stars and moons before a large audience of artists, film buffs and inquisitive beings. The first of its kind, Balkan films are rarely given a chance to be seen in a country like Australia. We hope to see you at the festival. Tickets will be made available in November at participating venues.
