Last night at MakeDox there was an intimate, warm and amiable opening of the festival, although Kurshumli An was crowded with the smiles of the many warmhearted people… People were pressed like peas in a pod yet more audience was arriving, asking for a seat. The entire audience and all the people present at the venue, contributed with their energy and made the best opening night so far at MakeDox. We sincerely thank all of them. They are the reason why MakeDox lives. We shared our impression and experiences of our Travelling cinema, at the photo exhibition The Travellings of the Donkey.

Jay Rosenblat kept us awake and aware about the different viewpoints around us. We were wondering which world is actually upside-down in the film by Petra Selishkar and Brand Ferro? A certain fascination overwhelmed us collectively, like teenagers who timidly hold their trembling hands while watching a romantic film. We couldn’t know if the hands were trembling because of the film we were seeing or the energy that floated around us. Jezek bewitched us with his dowry unconsciously left to Josipa, Kimo, Tina and to all of us by now…

How peculiar are the vibrations in this cosmos.And so joyful…

Chris Eckman and the Frictions were the cherry on top or better said, the crescendo of the night that perfectly joined all these emotions and experiences. We thank them all for the wonderful, collective experience.

We also express our gratitude to the industrious and dedicated volunteers. If it wasn’t for them, nothing of this would seem as wonderful. They dragged hundreds of chairs and pillows and carefully hosted our guests. Yet they kept their energy to party till the small hours in the night.
