Nová Evropa

The festival’s traditional competition section comprises debut works by upcoming directors from European states that are conceptually and formally daring. Films that provoke, reflect and express a specific view of the world we live in and the relationships we experience today. Some of them have taken their concepts to other countries, some focus purely on playful fantasy and some capture their peers, documentary-style. There is no doubt that each of the filmmakers selected – even though they are just starting out – has delivered a distinctive, worthwhile work. Some have been lauded and discovered by different festivals, while others are still awaiting acclaim.
