FeKK YU winner
Many more things to come / Sve je više stvari koje dolaze
Many more things to come is a beautifully told story of an individual who is battling to make its family function in dysfunctional times. The story is subtly told through the eyes of a young woman who is visiting home and coping with shaken relationships caused by overpresent economical crises. In such a world, we often lose our roles and identities; children become grownups and everyone is struggling with their new realities. Many more things to come does not try to give us any answers, it is rather confronting us with a reality of what was once middle class family, suggesting that answers are not going to come neither so soon nor easy.
FeKK SLO/K3 finalists
Indigo explores the inner world of the performers and uses precise misanscene and editing to create a self-assured filmic metaphor for a relationship going through a change.
Swimming / Plavanje
Swimming strongly brings us a vivid story of the culture clash through the eyes of a teenager torn by the life in contemporary western surrounding opposed to religious rules of her family. Through her excellent performance the young lead actress carries the universal story of growing up.
Number 3 / Številka 3
Through an unobtrusive blend of slice-of-life images the director gives us an insight of a burden of solitude that an immigrant has to cope within a contemporary Slovenian society.
Ana square / Ana trg
Ana square tells us an unconventional, uncompromised, realistic story of a human addiction – the one to another human being. This documentary communicates the complex relationship of protagonists following them in a verite style which serves as an ideal playground for commenting and questioning an insane world which we live in. The world driven by the force of money and compromised beliefs, a dog eat dog world in which we are positioned without being asked whether we would like to live in.
Wake me up / Probudi me
Wake me up is an ambitious animated film that uses a playful mix of techniques to create a mysterious atmosphere and take the audience on an emotional journey into the woods and through the shadows in the search for home.
Real good paneling / Dosta dobra lamperija
Very rarely have we seen a love story as original, but believable as in Real good panelling. The film finely draws the strange and vivid chemistry between the two characters and sticks the landing with a monologue that should make short film history: the perfect ending for a first date and for this film!
