The “Festival of East European Cinema” showcased films from the Central and Eastern European areas and allowed an insight in changes of cinema-landscapes. This year, a special focus was dedicated to the cinematographies of Bulgaria and Romania. Poduced by Lazar Ristovski, Serbian filmmaker Oleg Novkovic portrays in his prize-winning film Tomorrow Morning a generation of young people in their 30s — generation which is deeply disintegrated from its roots.
