SECTION: Feature Film Competition

31FFC Sektions Button Spielfilm

The best productions from Central and Eastern Europe.

Stories as diverse as Eastern Europe, ranging from Ukrainian family tragedies on speed to contemplative end-of-time reflections from Azerbaijan and coming-of-age films between Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and Securitate.

Between Polish small-town slackers, Belarusian political activists against their will and a Romanian policeman on the road to the provinces. Survival strategies before and after the changes of times, surprising and overwhelming things between the Baltic coast and the Pannonian plain.
