The short experimental film A.D.A.M. by Vladislav Knežević is one of nine films selected for the special section dedicated to short 3D film. This is a hybrid of sci-fi and paranoid thriller about a drone with a code name A.D.A.M. that develops its own conscience during a space mission and starts to resist its operators. The film already screened at many festivals, including those in Kassel and Jihlava, and it won a special mention at Alternative Film/Video in Belgrade.
Euro Connection, the festival’s industry segment intended for the stimulation and development of projects and networking of film professionals, has this year chosen 14 producers to present their activities and projects in the Producers Focus. Thanks to a collaboration between Creative Europe Desk – MEDIA Office, one of the selected filmmakers is Jure Pavlović with Sekvenca production company. Founded in 2010, Sekvenca produces films of all genres and types. Their short film Picnic was presented last year precisely at Euro Connection, at it will premiere at the 65th Berlinale.
