Shanghai Gypsy is the most expensive Slovenian film ever made, involving the creation of huge sets near Maribor for this acclaimed adaptation of novelist Feri Lainscek's greatest literary success and drawing on acting and musical talents from across the region. Some of the film's sequences were also shot in Trieste, Italy. Shanghai Gypsy won Best Film at the South-East European Film Festival in Paris "SEE a Paris" in 2013.
