The “Mirëdita, dobar dan!“ festival, held in Belgrade every June, introduces Belgrade public to the cultural scene of Kosovo, as a contribution of the general aspirations of permanent peace establishment and normalization of relationships between Serbia and Kosovo.
The leading idea behind the festival is the initiation of encounters and cultural exchange between the Serbian and Kosovo scenes, so that these encounters may become a tradition and continually contribute to the cooperation of the two societies to improve social, political and cultural relationships.
The world renowned Yugoslav Kosovo Albanian actor, Bekim Fehmiu – a symbol of our joint past, together with all of its challenges, achievements and misunderstandings, was and is an inspiration for establishment and realization of the festival.
Visitors of the Festival will have an opportunity to learn more about the cultural scene of Kosovo – theatre, film, music, and visual artwork. Besides the above mentioned, public debates which will critically examine relationships between Serbia and Kosovo from the standpoint of inheritance from the past, as well as perspective for cooperation in the area of economy, trade, education, sport, civil sector and all segments of the society, will be held.
