“The lack of capacity in the city’s cinemas and the closure of Kino Europa are the reasons for the return to SC Cinema, but it brings back happy memories of our early years at the festival. This year is also the celebration of Croatian cinema, which is heralded by the national premiere of The teachers’ room by Sonja Tarokić in the feature films competition and ten Croatian shorts in the Checkers program, ”festival director Boris T. Matić told FNE.

The jury for the feature film competition will include renowned Croatian cinematographer Vanja Černjul, last year’s Serbian director and Golden Landau award winner Ivan Ikić, and Romanian actress and activist Katia Pascariu. The jury for Checkers and the International Short Film Competition is made up of Montenegrin director Ivan Bakrač, Slovenian director Rok Biček and Croatian director and last year’s Checkers Prize winner Sara Grgurić.
