Dove sei, amor mio won an award at Tuzla!

TFF Fairy for The Best Animated Film of the first Tuzla Film Festival went to Dove sei, amor mio by Veljko Popović.

In the past year and a half – since it was released – Veljko Popović’s film Dove se, amor mio has been screened at more than 70 international film festivals, including the prestigious manifestations like the ones at Clermont-Ferrand and Stuttgart, and it has won few awards and mentions as well: at the Tabor Film Festival, Sarajevo Film Festival, in Riga, at Balkanima... Dove sei, amor mio tells a story of a lonely old woman who can’t and won’t change the safety of her routine. It is a very stylized “author animation”: Popović’s preferred 3D animation telling a dark contemporary escapist story.

Festival in Tuzla started successfully few days ago with grand competition programs of the south Slavic features, documentary films, short narratives, and animated films. In the rich program of animation one could mostly see Croatian authors who had represented their country with about 30 films.

Veljko Popović introduced his work in the year 2008; a dark debut She Who Measures immediately won many awards in the international festival circuit, but most importantly at Animafest and Annecy as well. From then on Popović has been presenting almost one new film a year. At the moment he's successfully touring the festivals with the newest film, Father, a Bulgarian-Croatian-German omnibus in which he directed and animated one of five stories. Father was screened last week in the Main Competition Program at the Hiroshima International Festival of Animated Film – with festivals in Annecy, Ottawa and Zagreb one of the most important film events in animation today.
