Nowadays, art in its all forms surpasses borders which limit man’s living and creation in time and space. Film and film presentation are these ambassadors with which the city of Bitola and the Republic of Macedonia travel throughout the world. The Manaki brothers (Janaki and Milton) with their Camera 300 showed us pictures from the way of life in Bitola and the Balkans on a 35 mm film so that the today’s film makers can tell us their stories behind their cameras and create their visions through motion pictures. Film as an art, presents Bitola  as a film city of two international festivals: The Manaki Brothers’ Film Festival – a world director’s film festival and the festival of non-professional documentary film category FADF  Camera 300.

The 21st International Festival of Non Professional Documentary Film – Camera 300 will be held in Bitola from 29 October – 2 November 2013. Camera 300 is being organized by the Cinema union of Macedonia, Video Club “Studio Milton Manaki” and Public Technics – Bitola.
