Festival “Mirëdita, dobar dan!” is a unique initiative that contributes to initiates dialogue and cultural exchange between Kosovo and Serbia, with the aim of improvement of social, political and cultural relationships between societies. Bekim Fehmiu, Albanian, Kosovo, Belgrade, Yugoslav and world actor – a symbol of joint past, together with all of its challenges, achievements and misunderstandings, served as inspiration for establishment and realization of this event. We wish these encounters to become a tradition and continually contribute to establishment of permanent peace and normalization of relationships between Kosovo and Serbia.
The project “Mirëdita, dobar dan!” is implemented by Integra in partnership with Kosovo Foundation for Open Society, Civic Initiatives and Policy Center. The Bekim Fehmiu Film Week in Kosovo 2016 is organized in cooperation with the Cultural Center in Kamenica, Anibar in Peja, Cultural Centre in Mitrovica, Theater “Adriana Abdullahu” in Ferizaj and the City Theatre in Gjakova. This project is supported by Norwegian Embassy in Pristina, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, Swiss Embassy in Pristina and Ministry of Culture in Kosovo.
