Kustendorf 2022 Postponed

As we were gearing up for the 15th edition of Kustendorf International Film and Music festival, scheduled as an in-person event for later this month, the latest surge of COVID-19 infection and it’s highly transmissible Omicron variant forced us to change our plans. As our festival is focused on the gathering of filmmakers from the global community, and depends on direct encounters between the artists, audiences and festival goers, we have decided to postpone the upcoming festival until a later date. It was a tough decision to make, but we feel it would not be safe to gather hundreds of filmmakers, artists, employees, volunteers, friends and cinephiles, with the epidemiological situation and the rise of the number of infected people, both in Serbia and globally. Also, the ever-changing traveling and quarantine rules and regulations in different countries were seriously preventing us from organising Kustendorf 2022 as an event we envisioned. We believe that the situation will improve and plan to organize Kustendorf 2022 with the planned line-up in May. We’re sorry for the inconvenience caused, but we believe that this decision is the best possible one, both for the safety of our guests and for maintaining the spirit of Kustendorf festival as intimate and in-person event.
