France joins the co-production list for Teona Strugar Mitevska’s latest film “God Exist, Her Name Is Petrunia” whose shooting started last week
Last week, the film "God Exists, Her Name Is Petrunia" was supported by the prestigious French fund Aide aux cinémas du monde of the national film agency Centre National du Cinéma et de l'image animée (CNC). This is one of the most prestigious funds in Europe, and this film was unanimously elected by the jury, becoming the second Macedonian film that received funds from this fund; the first one is "I Аm From Titov Veles". Getting support from this fund in France is considered a recognition and recommendation for the quality of the project, and it is also possible to get funding for the film for its further film distribution in France. http://www.cnc.fr/web/fr/cinemas-du-monde
