Faculty of Drama Arts in Cetinje (part of the University of Montenegro) organized in previous years many projects that were based on the exchange of knowledge and production in joint artistic works through mutual efforts. It was mainly focused in the exchange of experience of the students from European countries that came to Montenegro and, on the other side, it was focused on the investigation of new places and its stories. We can mention here the annual meeting of students from regions within the project “Writing of the Town”, organized in summer in the town Kotor. Every year students have a different perspective of the town to cover with their artistic expression in various categories: fine arts, music, theatre and film. Last year, through IPA CBC funded project “ArTVision” the students from Croatia, Albania, Italy and Montenegro gathered in Cetinje through one-week residencies and they produced works in the field of theatre and film. All these residencies and meetings regularly had special guest lecturers and mentors that gave an authentic vision and inspired the students to produce something new. It’s very important to emphasize the fact that Faculty of Drama Arts in Cetinje is a member of the Regional Network that gathers the drama and film academies from Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Bosnia, Herzegovina, Macedonia and Montenegro. Through that network students are able to produce the theatre and film works through mutual cooperation. Teachers and students of the Faculty are also involved in many external inclusion projects.

Il Gigante soc. coop.

The Giant was created in 2000 from an idea of Elizabeth Amalfitano, with intents related to the organization of cinema events and the promotion of independent works. With time, it enriches itself with experiences, meetings and collaborations that have allowed to realize festivals, conferences, productions of documentaries and movies. By different roads we, the group of professionals, arrived at cinema united by the passion and idea that it deals with a language, a free expression, a demand and a form of the imagination. We are convinced that cinema must not bend to confirm the inevitability of reality, cinema is a creation that allows people to think, to excite, to set questions and to propose thoughts and new images on the reality of human beings. We want to support brave and talented authors of cinema who continually try to be independent and free from commercial ties. Our aim at all this is to maintain the concreteness of doing the job, the construction of relationships and the comparisons to face problems related to the production and distribution of a movie or a documentary. We try to find in our job and in that of the others a point of view that has a personal look, the thought that hides behind the illusion of the images in movement.
In 2004 Il Gigante produced the documentary movie on the rom „Adisa or a thousand-year old story“ by director Massimo D`Orzi followed, in the same year, by the organization of the festival „Tony Gatlif and the nomadic cinema“ and a conference whose proceedings will give life to the book „For a nomadic cinema“ edited by E. Amalfitano. In 2002 Il Gigante organized the cinema event of the European Social Forum in Florence with the title „The image of rebellion.“ Filmography 2011 Ribelli!
