This year's festival edition, organized by the Open University Subotica, is held at several locations, including the unique Summer Stage in Palić, as well as the cinemas Eurocinema, Abazija and Lifka.
PREPARATIONS TO BE TOGETHER FOR AN UNKNOWN PERIOD OF TIME recently won the New Vision Award from the MIOB (Moving Images Open Borders) festival network for a European feature film with an exceptional authorial approach that deserves wider international recognition. In this story, 40-year-old neurosurgeon Marta falls in love, leaves a brilliant career in America and returns to Budapest to start a new life with the chosen one.
Film CREAM, directed by Nora Lakos, follows the protagonist Nora, who, after a love shipwreck, opens a bakery and sells pastries named after famous unrealized love couples from film history. Director Peter Gothar in SEVEN SMALL COINCIDENCES focuses on Gertrude, a middle-aged music teacher who is fed up of family life with her husband and teenage son. Her life turns upside down when she meets her former student, the beautiful Alban. Peter Varsics's film PERFECT AS YOU ARE is a drama about lies, and follows a man from the world of advertising, who fakes a romantic relationship with the author of a self-help bestseller to launch his literary career. POST MORTEM (directed by Peter Bergendy) follows a photographer of corpses and a girl who meets ghosts in a haunted house after the World War I. Film TOXIKOMA directed by Gabor Herendi is a story about a clash between two egos - a young drug addict and a respected psychiatrist, whose conversations turn into a kind of competition.

Many of the films will have their Serbian and regional premiere at Palić.
