"Max Velo" cinema in Tirana opens its doors to the public, the first activity of the Albanian Video Archive Festival

"Max Velo" cinema in Tirana opens its doors to the public, the first

The Albanian Video Archive Festival is the first activity at the "Max Velo" cinema, which opened its doors to the public on Monday evening. Designed in Laprakë in the 70s by the architect Maks Velo himself, this space will now be dedicated to cinema and art. The "Max Velo" cinema in the Lapraka area of ??Tirana starts its activity after a long period of non-functioning, but the director of the Creative Industry Agency, Jonid Jorgji, says that this cinema is coming back to life after almost three decades. "The cinema was left in oblivion for a long time, losing its function and becoming an identityless building that did not represent either the architect or the city. Today we are happy that with the initiative of the Tirana Municipality and the Creative Industry Agency, the cinema is coming back to life after almost 30 years", says Jonid Jorgji, director of the Creative Industry Agency - Tirana Municipality. The new cinema will have 140 seats for the public, where according to director Jorgji, a program of films and other activities is planned in this renovated space after the Albanian Video Archive Festival. "There will be a movie program every day of the week, bringing another spirit to the Laprak area. There will also be no shortage of cultural activities, which we are dealing with step by step at the organizational level", says Jonid Jorgji, director of the Creative Industry Agency. After the "Agimi" cinema, there is now the "Max Velo" cinema, which, after passing the restoration phase, also turns into a new art space in the capital. Max Velo was born in Paris on August 31, 1935. After finishing high school, he continued his studies at the Polytechnic Institute, in the field of Civil Engineering. Then he specialized in architecture and in 1960 he participated in the first design that was done in Tirana. As an artist, he created in several genres of art: painting, prose, poetry, journalism, as well as being engaged in current Albanian issues. He passed away in Tirana on May 7, 2020.

The purpose of the festival

The Albanian Video Archive Festival aims to bring to the general public a rich panorama of the evolution of Albania in more than 100 years. Through the presentation of video materials, which are made possible by those who participate in this festival, the organizers aim to restore the collective memory and build an open dialogue about the history of our country, as well as awareness about the preservation of personal archives in an efficient manner. . For the Albanian Video Archive Festival, the jury has been set up, consisting of the writer and screenwriter Ylljet Alicka, Marinela Ndria, director of the Central State Film Archive, and director Eline Flipse. Within the framework of the festival, the documentary "70 minutes" by the Dutch director Eline Adam was shown for the first time. The festival is being organized in the city's newest public cinema, "Max Velo" in Laprakë through a program that includes video screenings, but there will also be panel discussions, etc. Participation will be open to all citizens and visitors. The festival that opened the doors of the "Max Velo" cinema will continue until May 17.
