The directors of the Film4 Frightfest have decided not to screen the controversial A SERBIAN FILM after the British censor BBFC demanded nearly four minutes of cuts.
Screen Jabber posted this statement released to the press by FrightFest co-director Alan Jones:
“Film4 FrightFest has decided not to show A SERBIAN FILM in a heavily cut version because, as a festival with a global integrity, we think a film of this nature should be shown in its entirety as per the director’s intention. Several film festivals across the world have already done so. Unlike the I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE remake, where we are showing the BBFC certified print, as requested by Westminster Council, the issues and time-line complexities surrounding A SERBIAN FILM make it impossible for us to screen it.”
I’ve seen A SERBIAN FILM—it’s certainly not a movie for everyone, and it is without a doubt extremely unsettling and disturbing (and also well-made), but it has screened at other festivals this year—South by Southwest and Fantasia–without any cuts. See Fango's review of the movie here.
