Suppressed feelings in a golden frame. Seven apples practice a passive-aggressive gesture – finally no longer quiet.

Ujemi! / Fetch!

Directed by: Dora Kaštrun
Short synopsis:

A sombre old lady and her lively dog go for a midnight hike. The old lady becomes fed up with her playful pet and its squeaky ball, so she kicks the toy into the lake. As the dog becomes unhappy, it’s time for the stern old lady to step into the water and play fetch.

Lovely Rita

Sveti ljudje / Sveti ljudi / Holy Men

Directed by: David Lovrić
Short synopsis:

A man emerges from a fog-covered lake and goes on a hunt for souls. A girl watches him through her binoculars as he steals everything that is valuable to her. The chase across the ruins of a hidden realm forever changes her destiny.

Kjer bo padel kamen / Dove il sasso cadrà / Where the Stone Will Fall

Directed by: Beatrice Pucci
Short synopsis:

Once upon a time there was a pond where Gerda the frog lived... And then there was a king who gave a stone to his son and said: "Where it falls you will take a wife." As often happens in fairy tales, fate offers unexpected possibilities. In this case a stone falls into the pond and the prince finds himself, in spite of himself, tied to Gerda the frog.

Airborne

Directed by: Andrzej Jobczyk

Fogu

Directed by: Francesco Mescolini, Marco Rinicella
Short synopsis:

On the mountains and moors of a timeless Sardinia, a god, a saint or perhaps an ancient man chases a pig he met in the bushes. That archaic man performs the same gesture that we see in the legend of Saint Anthony the Abbot or of Prometheus: he hands fire to men.

Turisti / Τουρίστας / Tourists

Directed by: Dimitris Simou
Short synopsis:

Charlie returns to the Greek island, on which years ago he had the most traumatic experience of his life. His son drowned in the sea. His personal trauma mixes with the collective trauma of the refugee crisis.

Še kamen teče / Aj kameň tečie / Even Stone Flows

Directed by: Michaela Čopíková, Veronika Obertová
Short synopsis:

Even stone flows – iron and glass flow too – just slower. Everything takes some moments. Time can be fluid. A short visual poem about the fluidity of being.

Saturacija / Saturacija / Saturation

Directed by: Lucija Bužančić
Short synopsis:

Something grew out of the cracks and walls and occupied all the empty spaces in a little Mediterranean city. This short film is about the gentrification of a place that has recently become a real archaeological site thanks to severe turistification.

Dobrotniki / Les Bienfaiteurs / The Benefactors

Directed by: Christophe Lopez-Huici
Short synopsis:

A young man, owner of a cycle-rickshaw, seems to be looking for a patron in a seaside resort during the off-season. Desperate, weary and hungry, he suddenly sees the salvation he has been waiting for in a group of eccentric revellers. But when the group's demands become increasingly inconvenient, the young man realises the true cost of his dedication.
