This year, goEast is introducing a new programme called Gurus, featuring works by renowned film directors. Two Croatian minority co-productions, Cristi Puiu’s Sieranevada and Mirjana Karanović’s A Good Wife, will screen in this category.

The festival’s industrial segment, East-West Talent Lab, will also include Croatian filmmakers and professionals. Director Karla Lulić will pitch her short film SLIJEDI…, a post-apocalyptic comedy without text. It is a story about a town where the idea of water is ancient history and where man preys upon man. The project is under development with support from the City of Zagreb and the City of Rijeka, in cooperation with the Croatian Audiovisual Centre. The producer is Dobar Film. The programme is aimed at connecting young filmmakers and artists from Eastern and Central Europe. The best idea and pitch will win a cash prize of 3 500 EUR.
