SKENA UP International Students Film and Theatre Festival

Founded in October 2003 by a group of students and young artists, SKENA UP is the NGO that organises the International Students’ Film and Theatre Festival in Kosova. SKENA UP Festival is unique not only in Kosova, but also in the wider Balkan region, by being one of the few ‘in competition’ festivals dedicated to film and theatre students.

SKENA UP Festival has two key missions, that both aim to overcome the weak institutional support offered to film and theatre students across the Balkans. First, we provide a suitable forum for students to present their work to the public, thereby building a crucial link in the chain of artistic creation: interaction with and feedback from the audience. Second, by bringing together peers from all over the world and introducing students to internationally renowned directors, producers, writers and actors, we facilitate their access to an artistic network invaluable for their future careers.

Thus, SKENA UP aims to promote artistic and professional values in Kosova, as well as partnership and artistic commitment between Kosova and other countries in the world. In addition, by bringing together young artists from all the various countries of the Balkans, SKENA UP makes a modest, but valuable, contribution towards promoting inter-ethnic understanding and reconciliation in the region.
