World Premiere of "Children of the Sun" at London Film Festival
Antonio Mitrikeski‘s latest film “Children of the Sun” will have its world premiere at the forthcoming Raindance International Film Festival in London. The film is set to be premiered in Macedonia on Oct. 1 in Skopje.
The film has been invited to be screened in the official programme and is eligible to vie for the festival’s main prize together with 11 other films. The film festival in London is due to take place on Sept. 24-Oct. 5. “Children of the Sun” will be screened on Sept. 25 with a second screening the next day at a gala event.
Recently, a contract with a U.S. distributor for promotion and screenings of the film has been signed at the film market in Cannes. The film has already been included in an official competition of a festival in the United States.
“I shot the movie thinking about the audience. This is perhaps my ‘most commercial’ work to date. The reviews are positive. I’m surprised with the film’s success at festivals,” director Mitrikeski stated at a press conference on Thursday.
“Children of the Sun” tells the story of a family who are forced to leave their home, as they have crossed one of the local mob’s interests, and start life all over again. It is a story about love, trust, sacrifice, betrayal and redemption. The film stars Ivana Pavlakovic, Kire Gjorevski, Meto Jovanovski, Vlado Jovanovski, Aleksandar Micic, Kamka Tocinovski and Emir Hadzihafizbegovic.
