First Films First


After thorough and long deliberation, our Jury Committee has reached the decision. It was not an easy one. We have received 121 applications, most of them on a very high level, and the Jury could choose only 8 projects.

We are happy to announce this year’s FIRST FILMS FIRST participants (in alphabetical order):
Stefan Constantinescu / MAN AND DOG (Romania)
Nazli Elif Durlu / ZUHAL (Turkey)
Antoneta Alamat Kusijanovic  / MURINA (Croatia)
Thanasis Neofotistos / PETER AND THE WOLF (Greece)
Christos Netsos  / DAJNA (Albania)
Mete Gümürhan / ŞAHMERDAN (Turkey)
Darko Sinko / INVENTORY (Slovenia)
Andreea Vălean /  LIFE BEATS REALITY (Romania)

 We regret many of the projects we love didn’t make the list since we were limited to only 8 participants. However, we encourage the applicants to keep the good work on developing their projects and apply the next year. This year, we have selected several projects that didn’t make it the last time.

Congratulations to the selected participants!
