43rd International Film Festival, Belgrad, März 2015 - Best Film Award in the FEST 2015 "Serbian Film" category

The Jury Votum Belgrad FEST 2015

The critics' jury of the FIPRESCI Serbian branch, comprising Dr. Ivana Kronja - chairperson, Milorad Djokic and Srdjan Vucinic, bestowed the Best Film Award in the FEST 2015 "Serbian Film" category upon the feature film THE ENCLAVE (Serbia, Germany, 2014), written and directed by Goran Radovanovic. THE ENCLAVE offers an exciting journey into the world of uncertainty and recent war clashes in Kosovo and Metohija, as seen by Serbianand Albanian children. Integrating mature guidance of child actors and of the entire cast, a dramaturgy which expertly accompanies the melodramatic plot, the causes and consequences of violence, and a modern and dynamicfilm language, THE ENCLAVE evokes the trauma of a victimized childhood, the hardships of life in contemporary Kosovo and Metohija and the possibilities of reconciliation and catharsis.


Nenad, ten years Christian boy from a Serbian enclave, determined to create a proper community burial for his late grandfather, crosses enemy lines and makes friends among the Muslim majority in deeply divided, war-torn Kosovo.
