Izjemen človek / Üks imeline mees / A Most Exquisite Man

Directed by: Jonas Taul
Short synopsis:

There exists a most exquisite man, or at least the world that surrounds him, labels and sees him as such. He has fantastic abilities, incomprehensible talent, he could even be called a genius, yet something within him is restless. Big questions utterly absorb him, leading him to a place where all he can do is surrender his life, in order to find that which gives him and the natural world undeniable purpose and concluding peace.

Panika / Panika / Panic

At times soaring above the clouds, at times reaching the lowest of lows, I fight to survive and to find a place for myself.

Skrivalnica / Caché / Búvóhely / Hide

Directed by: Daniel Benjamin Gray
Short synopsis:

Two brothers entertain themselves with a joyous game of hide and seek while their parents cook dinner. As one boy counts, the other quickly hides in a small cabinet full of glasses, stubbornly determined to win. Seconds pass… then minutes… years… and decades.

Directed by: Paul Muresan
Short synopsis:

People tend to hurt each other, leaving long lasting wounds, and this is no different amongst families.

Epidemia
