Honoring our partnership with Iceland and its filmmakers, we have organized a real treat: as Iceland is well-known by its steam baths, our Icelandic artists will meet the audience in one such bath. If you have a bathing costume or trunks, feel free to join in! The meeting point: hotel entrance at 16:30.
The Garden provides an optimal setting for one of the very interesting concepts of his year's edition of the festival, named Human Video Store. As we once used to rent VHS tapes in a video store, you can now 'rent' one of our festival guests and talk to them about whatever you like.
As of 2:30 in the morning, the Matrijaršija'culture collective' from Zemun, represented by Ana Banković and Mileta Mijatović, will be entertaining you in the main square.
