Prime Minister of Serbia Ana Brnabic sent a congratulatory letter to the 4th Pingyao International Film Festival (PYIFF) on Oct 9. The film fest is currently underway in Pingyao county in North China's Shanxi province.

In the letter, Brnabic shared her excitement that a series of films themed "Yugoslav New Cinema – the Serbian New Wave" is being screened for the first time in China during the international film event.

She said that these films had played a vital role in showing the world the culture, sounds and stories of Serbia and Yugoslavia.

Brnabic is very proud that Serbian filmmaker Ivan Ikic's work Oasis has been nominated for the Roberto Rossellini Awards, which were set up by the Roberto Rossellini Foundation at PYIFF to encourage and reward outstanding new filmmakers and motivate the growth of film art.

She stated that she believes the inclusion of Serbian films into the film festival demonstrates the reliable and comprehensive strategic relationship between Serbia and China. Brnabic added that the event would advance cultural communication and friendship between the two countries. 

This year's PYIFF is being held from Oct 10 to 19 and screens 53 films from 24 countries, including nine from Serbia.
