‘Secret Ingredient’ by Macedonian director Gjorce Stavreski has been shortlisted in an official competition of the 36th Bergamo Film Meeting, where it will vie for awards along six other films.

The film festival in the Italian city of Bergamo runs from March 10 until March 18. The festival this year features over 150 films, including documentaries and shorts, as well as workshops, film marathons and exhibitions, the production company Fragment Film said on Thursday.
