The 13th KROKODIL literary festival reached about 300.000 people

The thirteenth edition of the KROKODIL literary festival which took place in Belgrade last August under the symbolic title BORDERS VS. FRONTIERS, reached about 300.000 people, achieving around 5000 of visitors and distributing nearly 1100 paphlets. That is the balance the organization has done of a festival, celebrated in the specific atmosphere of the now long-lasting Covid-19, which puts in a dialectical relationship the borders that hold us back in place with the frontiers that we can reach and are there for us to constantly move them. Across four festival days (August 26, 27, 28, 29) a top selection of local, regional and international authors were presented at the amphitheater in front of the Museum of Yugoslavia, at the Center for Cultural Decontamination and at the Yugoslav Film Archive. The audience had a chance to enjoy readings, conversations, sofa interviews, meetings with journalists and the audience, book signings, panel discussion programs, debates, promotions, screenings etc.
