* * * CONCEPT * * *
The Festival presents films, which reflect new views, original imagery, and a critical approach to the crucial elements of modern human existence. It is a place for cinema that expands its own boundaries, that is astonishing, different, potentially free from the pressure of tradition, ready to give itself over to unpredictable experimentation.
The festival shows films and audio-visual works from all over the world, which test new audio-visual languages and at the same time treat current problems and the situations of present-day societies. The purpose is to establish a global communication, which will escape the simplifications of the mass media.
