Meet the Filmmakers: WITH MANY THINGS TO COME

Interview with director Jelena Gavrilovic

Meet the Filmmakers: WITH MANY THINGS TO COME

Director Jelena Gavrilovic


What is the teaser text for your film WITH MANY THINGS TO COME?

Jovana, the main character of my film, is a a bit arrogant 25 year old girl, which makes a short visit to her family home, just to find her mother down and depressed. She decides to take her out for a beer.

What was your highlight during the process of filmmaking?

I will always remember the process of writing - my scriptwriter Dimitrije and I spent a lot of time together just talking and talking about things which move us, this later became our script. Another amazing process was the work with the actresses Ana and Draginja. It was extremely easy and natural, they felt the story so well, so all our discussions were constructive and creative.


If you weren't a filmmaker, you'd be…?

If I wouldn'd work in the films at all, I would open a Kafana which would be open 24/7.

Is it your first time in Munich? What do you expect of the city and the festival?

This is my second time at this festival and it feels great to come back! I expect not to get stuck in the elevator this time and meet a lot of new friends.
