While last year’s FEST was marked by many novelties, this year these novelties may be considered a standard of the biggest film festival in the region. This year too, the best films will be rewarded in three competition programs: the films were picked by Art Director Jugoslav Pantelic, as well as the programming director of “Frontiers”, Thrills & Kills and Microwave Mladen Djordjevic. Nikola Ljuca’s debut “Humidity” will have the honor to open the Festival. FEST brings a total of 110 premieres.
