Years running: 14 (since 2008)


The International Festival of Tourist and Ecology Film.


SILAFEST has Ecology and Tourist film as its basic guideline, and according to the modern approach, the Festival Council interprets Tourism in the widest possible sense of the word, the Festival is open for Cultural Tourism films, films on wine, on big and famous holy places, Sports films, etc. Renowned museums, wine cellars, monasteries and holy places, spots events… nowadays attract as many tourists as spas, ski centres, the Mediterranean islands, and exotic destinations do. The development of tourism is nowadays related to ecologically clean areas, so a question is inevitably raised about the ecologically sustainable development of tourism worldwide. Therefore, there is a relation between these two important categories at the Festival.


  • Competition part of the programme: about sixty films;
  • A range of associated events organized, related to ecology and tourism.


  • Golden and Silver Wave. Golden and Silver Wave Awards are given to the best films, particularly in the categories of tourist and ecology film;
  • Golden and Silver Pincum. Golden and Silver Pincum will be given to the best Serbian films in the categories of tourist and ecology film;
  • The Blue Danube. Since Tourism is a complex area, The Blue Danube award will be given in every special category of Tourist film – Wine, Sports, Cooking, Religious Tourism, Cultural Tourism, Art and Tourism.
