A Graduate from the School of Arts of the University of Nova Gorica Won the International Film Award for Best Documentary Musical

The Hrupni Maček Award for the best documentary musical was presented for the film “Odpadki druge generacije — po stopinjah nekega punka” (“The Wastes of the Second Generation — in the Footsteps of a Punk”) by the Slovenian director Dunja Danial, a graduate from the School of Arts of the University of Nova Gorica.

The 12th Grossman Festival of Film Fantasy and Wine has traditionally ended with awarding the Hrupni Maček Award (literally — “a noisy kitten”).

The Hrupni Maček Award for the best documentary musical was presented for the film “Odpadki druge generacije — po stopinjah nekega punka” (“The Wastes of the Second Generation — in the Footsteps of a Punk”) by a Slovenian director Dunja Danial. The film exceeds documentary chronicling with its rhythm and informative content. The underestimated punk movement of the second generation is shown to the audience in an unexpected light. The picture provides compelling evidences of its uniqueness and social role. “The film is also important for the understanding of today’s musical, cultural and political life in Slovenia,” the jury believes.

Slovenian Cinema—an Endangered Genre?

The Film Festival in Ljutomer was held on 12–16 July. The First International Symposium “On Joint Regional Genre Filmmaking” and a round table “Magic Dozen of the Genre Cinema in Slovenia” were held as part of the Festival. The guests of the Festival were also offered a rich musical program.
