New Europe

Febiofest's traditional yet unique competition section of feature films introduces first films by new directors on the European continent. This collection presents intellectually and formally ambitious and daring works. Films that provoke, reflect, and offer auteur views on the society we live in, the relationships we have, and dramatic events that have already happened. Some of the directors find inspiration for their reflections in the dark corners of thriller genres, others prefer comedy, social drama, or documentary approaches. But there's no doubt that each and every of the selected filmmakers –although they are only at the start of their career –offers a unique and valuable film work. Some have already been discovered and awarded at other festivals, others are still waiting for their first laurels.
