Maja Miloš on 10 000 BUCKS selection

When considering contemporary film production, we are often able to observe films whose glitter and polish are like a clever makeup that conceals the lack of ideas and know-how of their authors. It sometimes seems as if they had at their disposal all the technical and production possibilities imaginable, but did not know what to do with them.

Up to 10 000 bucks selection’s authors have nothing to hide behind. As a result, we are awarded with ideas, skills and knowledge. Mistakes, which are clearly observed without a glittering decorative paper, greatly contribute to their charm, and in best cases they become that secret ingredient capable of pushing boundaries of expression.

The films that we will present this year belong to various genres and have very different styles, but one thing is sure – they carry within them the potential to shake us, and no doubt that many will move us. Enjoy!

Award-winning director Maja Miloš, selector of Up to 10,000 bucks selection for 2013, chose 31 films to be part of this film programme at Cinema City festival. The films that Miloš chose vary in genre – feature, documentary, animated and experimental. Each one reveals in an exciting way how important creativity and originality are in the creative process.
