Festival Story:

The Ex Ponto International Festival was launched in 1993 by the B-51 Cultural Society. The Society’s most important project was created at the outset on a strong humanistic, political and social foundation, attempting by means of cultural exchanges and international co-productions to maintain connections with other parts of former Yugoslavia and south eastern Europe. Connections and joint venture projects with the prominent festivals in these regions still represent a specific feature of Ex Ponto today. Projects are primarily confined to the spheres of theatre and fine arts but should in future also encompass film.
