Svetozaru Cvetkoviću nagrada kritike za najboljeg glumca na festivalu u Hjustonu

Glumac Svetozar Cvetković dobio nagradu kritike za najboljeg glumca na 50. filmskom festivalu Vorldfest (Worldfest) u Hjustonu.

Cvetković je priznanje dobio za ulogu u filmu "You Go To My Head", koji je režirao belgijski producent i reditelj Dimitri De Klerk, saopštila je produkcijska kuća Testament films.

- Ovo je lepa vest. Pogotovo što priznanje dolazi od ljudi koji vas ne poznaju, ili vas čak možda nisu nikad ni gledali - rekao je tim povodom Cvetković koji nije bio u mogućnosti da prisustvuje dodeli nagrada.

On je dodao da se oseća "pomalo nestvarno, i istovremeno ponosno", kada se pogleda ko su ovogodišnji laureati.

Medju glumcima, ovogodišnji dobitnici nagrada u zvaničnoj konkurenciji su Natali Portman, Džef Bridžis i Kejsi Aflek.

"You Go To My Head" je nezavisna, niskobudžetna francusko-nemačko-američka koprodukcija, snimana 2015. godine sa vrlo malom ekipom, u Marakešu i pustinjskim predelima Maroka. Reditelj De Klerk je dobio nagrade za režiju i film u celini.

Dizajner tona bio je Novica Jankov iz Srbije. Očekuje se da film uskoro bude prikazan i u Beogradu, uz prisustvo reditelja.
