DEA OPEN AIR International
Film Festival TIRANA,
02- 08 May 2019
In the last five years, DEA Open Air international film festival has developed into the world of cinema. The best
competition in this film festival. However, the city- with all its natural beauty was too small for the outcome of the festival and its infrastructure was insufficient for its magnitude. Tirana as a modern metropolis has all it takes to achieve the aim of the organizers: to make Tirana, alongside Sarajevo and Thessaloniki, a center for filmmakers, producers and mainly movie industry distributors. There is no doubt that Tirana with its human resources, modern infrastructure, geographic position, climate, hospitality and its wonderful landscape, has all the potential to become an attraction for foreign filmmakers. Modern Tirana with its square, the amphitheater at the articifical lake and the Academy of Arts offers wonderful locations for a qualitative and popular festival. Tirana fully deserves a dignified international film festival. Cities with much smaller potential than Tirana, such as Prizren or Pristina, already have festivals with which they are internationally identified. Tirana with its geographic position and cultural attractions, proximity to Dajti Mountain, Durrës, Krujë or Berat and Apollonia, offers unique opportunities for cultural tourism. The concept of festival will remain the OPEN AIR.
