9/11 Dedication Film Festival

HRH Prince Leka member of the Jury of the 10th Edition of the 9/11 Dedication Film Festival of Prishtina


HRH Prince Leka II of the Albanians attended the 10th edition of the 9/11 Dedication Film Festival of Pristina, Kosovo, helded on september 7-11, as a member of the Jury.

In remembrance of the lives lost in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, in 2003 Prishtina FILM organized the Multimedia Art Festival 9/11. The festival began as a film, sculpture, and modern design competition, expressing artists’ points of view on that particular day in 2001. PrishtinaFILM produced and edited five short films within one month to present at the festival. The four-day event was held in cooperation with the US Office (now US Embassy) Pristina. A high level of both artist and audience interest brought the festival back as an annual event, and it is in its 10th edition in 2013. 9/11 is unique among film festivals because, in recognition of the challenges facing artists in Kosovo, Prishtina FILM also produces a number of films for the festival each year.

This non-commercial festival gives opportunities to artists by enabling them to show their scripts. Prishtina FILM has produced dozens of films over the years and become a major contributor to the development of Kosovo’s film sector.
