Stefan Sidovski made the film revolt, in 1977.

Born in 1946. He is best known as one of the most inspiring philosophy and logic high school professors in Skopje. Passionate about film and film aesthetics ever since his early gymnasium days, Sidovski has started making amateur and alternative movies, at first alone and then as a member of the Cinema Club “Camera 300” and the Academic Cinema Club. Holder not only of a PhD degree but also of the highest degree “Master of Amateur Film” and of the Golden Plaque for contribution to the spread of the film culture in Macedonia, he is author of the books “Film frame and its aesthetic essence” (1995) and “Aesthetics and Dialectics in the editing of the film” (2010). Following his more than 35-year-long teaching career, he has started working in 2010 at the Skopje-based University for Audiovisual Arts (ESRA) as a professor in history and theory of film. His fruitful filmography includes more than 100 amateur and alternative films out of witch many have been rewarded and some even banned.

Muhamed Ibrahimi performed re:volt #1 at the 5th edition of MakeDox Documentary Film Festival, Skopje.

Muhamed Ibrahimi is a string multi-instrumentalist from Skopje. He treats his guitar (mandolin, saz, etc.) in a very unconventional way, quite intuitive and inspirational. His compositions are an authentic mixture of several musical styles, as blues, rock or ambient, but deeply rooted in oriental (sufi) tradition and albanian (balkan) folklore.

Muhamed played a partly composed, partly improvised soundtrack for Sidovski's film, which he played live at Kurshumli An, Skopje, in June 2014, opening the fifth edition of the Makedox International Documentary Festival.

Gaf Gam Gaf Maf performed re:volt #3 in Gevgelija in Summer 2014 as part of the 6th edition of the BOSH Festival.

Gaf Gam Gaf Maf is a project originally developed by the sound artist Zoran Tevdovski from Skopje, Macedonia. The project started with a band on the first album “Guitar Gaf [2011]”. The last song on Guitar Gaf announced a new experimental sound concept, which was later explored in live performances that led to the second album “Experimental Mod [2012]”.This project is a creative concept that experiments with new sound parameters in the form of guitar pedals uniquely developed by the artist for live performances. The sound performances primarily run in two separate guitar amps wired in stereo for complete recapturing of all frequencies. Tevdovski's music has been described as experimental, psychedelic, ambient and alternative in atmosphere.

Gaf Gam Gaf Maf play Revolt at the 6th edition of BOSH Festival, in Gevgelija, on 24 August 2014.
