Vip kinoteka - Project of digital restoration of Serbian film heritage

 

Ten cult films that marked Serbian and regional cinema will be digitally restored and ready to be re-screened with high image and sound quality, within project "Vip Kinoteka", realized by Vip mobile and Yugoslav Film Archive.


The project "Vip Kinoteka" aims to preserve and protect some of the most famous masterpieces of the seventh art, which have been proclaimed national cultural property of great importance. The first film to be screened is the cult film of domestic cinematography, which has been proclaimed by the Yugoslav Film Archive as the best Serbian film - the old favourite Who’s singin’ over there (Ko to tamo peva). Within this project, among others, films by Živojin Pavlović, Goran Marković, Živko Nikolić, Srđan Karanović, etc. will be rescued from the jaws of time.


The project "Vip Kinoteka", which currently includes ten works of cinematic art of national importance produced in the period from 1967 to 1993, started the long-awaited process of digital restoration of the Serbian film heritage. Digital restoration is a technique used by all European and world film archives to preserve the film heritage for the future.

Partnership with the Volleyball Federation of Serbia

 

During ten years, from 2007 to 2017, as a general sponsor of the Volleyball Federation of Serbia and of all Serbian national volleyball teams, Vip has proven to be a dedicated partner in developing and popularising volleyball in Serbia.


Supported by Vip, our national volleyball teams successfully participated at prestigious international competitions during this period and won over 130 medals, among which the ones that are particularly standing out are four medals from the European Championship and one from the World Championship won by men's senior national teams and two European medals and silver medal at the Olympics won by women's senior national teams.


On account of launching of the National Beach Volleyball Championship (Vip Beach Masters), which has been organized across Serbia since 2008, our country hosted the most prestigious international tournaments under the auspices of the European Volleyball Confederation (CEV). In addition, more than 12,000 girls and boys learned the basics of this sport from the free lessons of Vip Beach Masters school of volleyball. Together we also implemented numerous socially responsible activities aiming to promote volleyball, team spirit and fair play in children and the youth, such as the project “Volleyball Connects”.


For a whole decade, the partnership between Vip and the Volleyball Federation of Serbia was an exemplar of cooperation between a sports organization and a company, which is particularly demonstrated by accomplished results. The aim of joint activities was to develop and popularise volleyball in Serbia, as well as to improve the quality and importance of this sport, along with promotion of young talented players.
