The feature film The High Sun and three minority Croatian co-productions have been selected for the 27th Palm Springs International Film Festival, to be held from January 1st to 11th in California.

‘New Voices/New Visions’ brings 12 debut feature films that, in Palm Springs, will be having their American premiere. Included in this section are the minority co-productions Our Everyday Life by Ines Tanović and Interruption by Yorgos Zois. Our Everyday Life is a Bosnian-Slovenian-Croatian co-production, where the Croatian co-producer is Spiritus Movens, while Interruption is a Greek-French-Croatian co-production, where the Croatian partner is Jaako Dobra Productions.

The Awards Buzz section features films from 39 countries who were bidding for a Best Foreign Film Oscar Award nomination. In this category, both The High Sun, directed by Dalibor Matanić and Judgement, a Bulgarian-Croatian co-production directed by Stephan Komandarev, will be screened. The High Sun was produced by Zagreb’s Kinorama in co-production with Slovenia’s Gustav Film and SEE Film Pro in Serbia. The Croatian co-producer of The Judgement is Propeler Film. Our Everyday Life, the Bosnian representative, is also being screened in this section. 

It is interesting to note that the ‘New Voices/New Visions’ programme will be screening the Belgian film Paradise Trips, directed by Raf Reyntjens, shot in the region of Gračac, Croatia, in the summer of 2014.
