Special Jury Mention
For sharing the storytelling with its main unanimated character – the gallery – through a picture composition specifically intended to blend reality and art, the Jury Mention goes to Vis-a-vis by Miha Likar.
The festival takes place at two main locations: the indoor hall of the Slovenian Cinematheque and its Summer Open-air Cinema at the Museum Quarter in the “new” part of the Metelkova mesto Autonomous Cultural Zone. Additional venues are also the R.O.G. Skatepark and the KULT3000. After the main festival ends, some of its programme later travels through other venues around Slovenia.
An important part of the festival are its international collaborations, especially with the K3 Festivalfrom Austria. There, the three best Slovenian films are presented in a regional short film competition section.
