The Leading actor of Secret Ingredient wins European Shooting Star at Berlinale!

Blagoj Veselinov, who acts in the leading role in “Secret Ingredient”, received the European Shooting Star Award at Berlin Film Festival. The jury remarked: “Blagoj Veselinov has utterly impressed the jury with his performance in Gjorce Stavreski’s Secret Ingredient, which is imbued with deep and unexpected sensitivity. Veselinov’s turn here is cleverly and commandingly toned down and subtle, showing his heartfelt bond with his character. We look forward to seeing what he does next!”
