Dmitrij’s monotonous days drag on, between working in the courthouse and his solitary rock-climbing excursions. In his endeavors to escape the stifling conformity of a small Georgian town, Dmitrij gradually begins to integrate his newly met friend Andrej in his fantasy world. Then Andrej vanishes… Dmitrij soon learns that Andrej has been accused of murder. Whilst being questioned by an attorney, Dmitrij blends the facts necessary for an alibi with the tale of his fantasy.

Film synopsis:
Zane, young teacher with idealistic approach to life is easy to love. Only a maximalist like Zane can establish a true relationship with her class – socially disadvantaged youth from a Riga suburb. She successfully advocates her set of values – truthfulness, unconstraint, fairness, helpfulness – though she’s not quite adept at fulfilling these values herself. Zane doesn’t want to admit that her selflessness and even fanatic approach to her class is a fear of loneliness – she was recently abandoned by her pop-musician husband Eriks. When an unforeseen revelation by one of her students occurs, Zane has to choose between her principles and her own individual happiness.

Still, after finding her niece who at first refuses to help her, Halima sees that the spiral of tragic events from the past suddenly continues in the present, disrupting once again the troubled lives of the characters.

He recently completed shooting his third feature film "Halima’s Path”, currently in postproduction. He is a member of the European Film Academy.

Slobodan Trninic is one of the top Croatian directors or photography. He worked as Director of Photography on 26 feature films in Europe; he was second unit DP of more than 20 American and European feature films and TV films; he shot 30 documentaries and more than 100 commercials.

The film was shot on negative, with the top cast and crew from Croatia, Bosnia, Slovenia and Serbia. We are currently doing sound design, music, color correction and visual effects. We are planning to participate at the Croatian national film festival in Pula at the end of July. Although it could be said there have been enough Balkan war stories, the fact is that there is always a need for truthful and touching human dramas, regardless of which part of the world they come. What attracted us to this project is primarily the powerful emotional story loosely based on the facts, written by the successful Bosnian writer, Fedja Isovic, with his strong sense for characters and narrative flow.

Czech Republic, min, drama

Release date:spring 2013
Film language:Czech

Film synopsis:
The story of two young women begins at a crucial point of their lives. They have to rid themselves of failures and breakdowns, to begin again and tread a different path. Louise wants to perform in the theater which her proprietorial husband sees as betrayal. Erika is reliant on her graft, she yearns for higher eduction and better work. The story is told retrospectively, as an echo of psychiatrist treatment which Luisa undergoes. We can see her unable to speak to anybody, suffering, moveless.

Film synopsis:
Three years after an apocalyptic event has decimated 99.99% of the planet’s population, a young man ends his dramatic pilgrimage that brought a grim conclusion: he has found none of his relatives, friends or acquaintances alive. Now his motivation lies in a mysterious flyer which drives him to see a show that would explain "what the hell happened”. His journey is marked by encounters with few isolated survivors, an uncommunicative alien, an ordinary criminal, a ferocious pseudo-zombie, a few high-tech soldiers... and a girl.

"Elevator" (Romania, 2008, drama, 85 min), "Bucharestless" (Romania, 2011, essay film, 93 min), "Suspense 101" (Romania, 2012, thriller, 16 min). "Elevator" was awarded "Best Romanian Debut" award at Transilvania IFF (Romania), "Fresh Generation Award" at Fresh Film Fest (Czech Republic), "Audience Feature Choice Award" at Auburn IFF (Australia), "Best Editing" by the Romanian Filmmakers Association, "Audience Choice Award" & "Best First Film” at South-East European FF (USA).

Producer´s Statement:
We consider this film as "almost the last story of adventure, war and love in the world". With a production budget of 210.000 euros and currently in rough-cut editing stage, the post-production needs 30.000 euros for color-grading, sound mixing, a few VFX adjustments and DCP-packaging. We’re also looking for international sales agents and distributors interested in the film.

Russia, Estonia , min, drama

Release date:2013
Film is in postproduction
Film language:Russian
Film´s website:http://www.facebook.com/srokdoc

Film synopsis:
Vladimir Putin’s new presidential term began in May 2012. Six months before that Putin’s stability had expired. Time has speeded up. Time has changed. Time is flowing in a different direction.
What’s going to happen next? Who’s going to be tomorrow’s hero? When we started shooting this film, we wanted to answer these very questions. We neither keep a chronicle of the protest rallies, nor make a news report. We record the thoughts and emotions of the opposition leaders. We want to understand where they lead us. What they call us up for. Even when they also face a term—in jail.

Film synopsis:
Dimitris, an indebted self-employed telecommunications engineer, shuts down his small business. Desperate for quick money, he accepts a job offer from his friend Nick who works for Dimitris’ ex boss. The two men must get rid of the hackers who keep intruding into the antennas of the company. Their investigation leads to a suspicious flat in a big block of flats, where they find an illegal hidden antenna. Dimitris starts spying on Panayota, an ill-looking tenant of the block, with whom he gradually gets closer.

Producer´s Statement:
Wild Duck is a feature film with a strong political value, both in terms of its production process and its content. Within a paralyzed state-funding production system in the economically hit Greek film industry, Wild Duck is a totally independent film, made as a result of a team work among friends and collaborators who believed in it from day one. It was shot in RED Epic, in Athens and in the north of Greece within twenty three days. Our goal is to have its premiere in one of the major film festivals and we are looking for a sales agent who will appreciate its daring qualities and will support it throughout its festival career.
