A delegation of filmmakers will be present at the screening of ten competing films at the 47th EKOFILM International Film Festival with an environmental theme. Filip Remunda, Joep van Dijk from the Netherlands and Jakub Šipoš from Slovakia are among personalities visiting the festival. The meeting with the filmmakers will be accompanied by a screening of two of the four non-competing films.

The festival’s main competition programme adds one new world premiere, ten international premieres and three European premieres to the six world premieres previously announced. Nineteen films will be screened in competition, with three films out of competition. It’s a packed lineup featuring a couple of legends, a raft of returning Black Nights favourites and several soon-to-be-stars, from all corners of the cinematic globe. Two international premieres will come to PÖFF after having their world premieres with our friends at Seville European Film Festival.
