, which won an award last week at Karlovy Vary. In the Young Spirit of Europe section, the public will become acquainted with the works of "brave and inventive authors of unique poetics and attitudes towards film".

As always, Hungary has its own special section as a neighbouring country, while the Country in Focus programme, dedicated to the Black Sea nations, includes titles from Bulgaria, Georgia, Turkey and Azerbaijan. Eco Dox will present six environmental documentaries, accompanied by debates and a scientific conference involving key environmental experts and activists. 

Two homage sections will be dedicated to previous winners of the Aleksandar Lifka Award and to past laureates of the Underground Spirit Award. Finally, the five latest winners of the EFF Palić Golden Tower will get open-air screenings in one of Serbia's most beautiful squares.
