In the international short-film competition, the Hook went to Turkish-Czech co-production Pişmaniye by Ziya Demirel.
In the Croatian short-film section, Boris Poljak won with Autofocus.
This year even running a day longer than it has in previous years, the festival once again sold out all of its evening screenings at the Bacvice open-air cinema, with a capacity of 900 seats, and introduced a third screening venue in addition to the use of the city’s cinematheque, which also saw strong interest from Split audiences.
