The last Facelook discussion in 2019 was held in Kruševac. Mostly youth was gathered at the event at Saračeva Story cafe, as the guest was popular young actor Petar Strugar. Strugar spoke about his profession and his humanitarian work, and referred to European integrations from the perspective of his work.
He stressed that he did not know much about the European Union, but that there were nevertheless things where one could recognize the positive impact of membership and gave the example of Bulgaria.
“Bulgaria has experienced a boom in the film industry since joining the European Union and has become a more desirable place for film making, especially because of the incentives the Bulgarian government gives,” Strugar explained. The European Union itself, through the Creative Europe program, has funded the European film industry with more than € 800 million since 2014.
Strugar acknowledged that he was not too interested in politics and that he was much more dedicated to humanitarian work and to helping those in need. Solidarity is the value it holds most.
“I would much rather have the media write more about this,” he concluded and continued to answer questions from the audience even after the official end of the event.
The event was organized within the EnlargEUrope project and was also a lasting activity on the project.
