2023 Winner of Queer Lion at the Venice Film Festival and was North Macedonia’s Official Selection for Best International Feature at the 96th Academy Awards. Set in a household in Skopje, acclaimed filmmaker Goran Stolevski (OF AN AGE, 2022; YOU WON’T BE ALONG, 2021)’s talented observational storytelling technique portray the realism of queer life in North Macdonia.

In a free-spirited household where people come and go, Dita finds herself in unavoidable circumstances: raising her girlfriend's two daughters, the quirky and hilarious little girl Mia, and the rebellious teen Vanessa. They weren’t a family, but they became one. HOUSEKEEPING FOR BEGINNERS delves into the universal truths of family, exploring both the bonds we inherit and those we create. Despite its challenges, director Stolevski shines a light and hope on the contemporary queer community.
