The European Travel Commission (ETC) and Screen South are delighted to announce that film director Sir Alan Parker officially introduced 'Roll the Dice' to the press on Tuesday 5th November at the World Travel Market in London.

Roll the Dice is a film by Benoit Detalle and Marija Jacimovic, two young filmmakers from Belgrade who won the EuroShorts short film competition. They received €20,000 and first class InterRail passes to travel through Europe and produce their short film.

The result is an arresting 4-minute film, using stop frame animation, which illustrates a journey across Europe where every travel decision is made by rolling a pair of dice. The filmmakers say they "Wanted to portray Europe as one big playground ready to be discovered, highlighting the unknown, the feeling of exploration, of fun and discovery".
