(Finland/Germany/Estonia/Russia), already shaping up to be one of the breakout titles of the year – FilmFestival Cottbus will have 12 titles competing in its Feature Film Competition for the Main Prize of €25,000 from the Gesellschaft zur Wahrnehmung von Film-und Fernsehrechten (GWFF), the Special Prize for Best Director (€7,500, courtesy of Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg) and the Prize for an Outstanding Acting Performance (€5,000, courtesy of Sparkasse Spree-Neiße).

As promised by the organisers, the competition presents all of the cultural diversity of Eastern Europe. “With its artistic range between ironically fractured observation of the present, investigative reappraisal of history and contemplative family study, it shows the genre diversity of current Eastern European cinema – personal and political, hopeful and melancholic,” it was stated.

Female-centred stories will also be in the spotlight, thanks to films by Sonja Tarokić (The Staffroom [+leggi anche:

(Slovenia), showing a culture clash and generational conflict during a visit by a Slovenian brass band to Austria, will celebrate its world premiere during the event.

In the Short Film Competition, 11 films are competing for the main prize, with seven movies selected for the U18 Youth Film Competition and thus in the running for the title of Best Youth Film, endowed with €5,000 by the City of Cottbus. “The films describe very different aspects of the 'coming-of-age process': from fragile friendships, via bullying problems, to the struggle with the algorithms that increasingly penetrate our everyday life, thus giving an overview of the different and yet so similar lives and worlds of young people in different countries in Eastern Europe,” the festival team shared in the statement.
