First Films First


Having carefully reviewed all applications, the Selection Committee of the FIRST FILMS FIRST program has made a final decision.

We have received an overwhelmingly high number of projects – 159 in total. The Committee’s decisions have been very difficult since the quality of the majority of the projects was on a high level. We regret many of the projects we love didn’t make the list since we were limited to only 8 participants and we hope to keep in touch with all the directors who applied.

We are happy to announce the list of selected directors and their projects (in alphabetical order):

Derya Durmaz: THE BUS TO AMERICA (Turkey)
Ognjen Isailović: MAYBE FISH ARE DREAMING OF US (Serbia)
Ana Jakimska: BOY SCOUTS (Macedonia)
Tamara Kotevska: STUFFED LIFE (Macedonia)
Nikos Labôt: HER JOB (Greece)
Dominik Mancej: RIDERS (Slovenia)
Florenc Papas: OPEN DOOR (Albania)
Asimina Proedrou: BEHIND THE HAYSTACKS (Greece)

Congratulations to the selected participants!
