RETROSPECTIVE: MIGUEL GOMES

Funny Folk: Miguel Gomes’s Short Films by Michael Pattison On one level, Miguel Gomes’ Arabian Nights seemed a wild departure for a director not especially known for his epics. While the six-hour triptych is by far the Lisbon filmmaker’s lengthiest and most ambitious project to date, its structure promotes the micro: consisting of standalone shorts, […]

Visiting festival: Tampere

Special Midnight Screening: Everything is Terrible – Memory Hole

YO YO YO! FeKK 2017 is very happy to dedicate a special midnight screening to the Everything is Terrible collective and their spin-off, Memory Hole. The internet cult has been delighting audiences for over a decade with their viral edits of forgotten VHS treasures and American home videos. Some have declared their work a post-modern […]

AWARDS

Grand prize

Kamen u ruci / A Handful of Stones

Stefan Ivančić

For its expert and beautiful use of real locations to symbolise the isolation felt by a young protagonist in a tough, hopeless world. Filmmakers take note: if you are going to use a drone shot, this is how you do it.

FeKK SLO – Best Film

Trahere

Juš Jeraj, Atila Urbančič

For its warm depiction of a community's dedication to and love for a singular pastime, and for its compelling and sincere encapsulation of a rural milieu that is colourful down to its final visual detail.

FeKK SLO – Special Mention

Meje / Borders

Damjan Kozole

For employing a deceptively simple composition to maximum cinematic effect, in depicting a mass of people in transit both through the frame and across geographic terrain.

FeKK YU – Best Film

Oni samo dolaze i odlaze / They Just come and go

Boris Poljak

For its emphasis upon people and their interrelations, in an observational mode that recalls the rich tradition of Yugoslavian nonfiction. The film's narrative pace and visual language demand a cinema setting for it to be fully appreciated in its totality.

FeKK YU - Special Mention

Rakijada

Nikola Ilić

For its bittersweet portrait of a nation through the lens of a particular community and culture, which survives and keeps its spirits up despite ongoing hardship.
