The three-person jury made up of Miljenko Čogelj (Croatia), director Ivan Salatić (Montenegro) and Marko Grba Singh (Srbija) will decide on the Dandelion awards.

The international selection includes Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami, Infinite Football (42 Km Film) by Romanian director Corneliu Porumboiu, Wonderful Losers: A Different World by Arunas Matelis, Risk by Academy award winner Laura Poitras, I See Red People by Bojina Panayotova, Taste of Cement by Ziad Kalthouma and Mari Gulbiani’s Before Father Gets Back, which will have its premiere only one day earlier at the Sheffield Doc Fest.
