Nikola Ristanovski scooped the Golden Dolphin award for best actor at the fourth International Bosphorus Film Festival held in Istanbul for his starring role in The Black Pin – a debut feature film by Montenegrin director Ivan Marinovic.

The film got its world premiere at the Sarajevo Film Festival, followed by festivals in the United States and Australia. Macedonian film­-goers had the chance to see the movie at the 15th CineDays Festival of European Cinema.

Nikola Ristanovski stars as Father Peter who stands in the way of the inhabitants of a small village on a peninsula by refusing to sell his part of a property belonging to the parish. He also has to deal with his mother’s deteriorating mental health while questioning his own faith.

The Black Pin has been submitted by Montenegro to vie for an Academy Award in the foreign language category.
