In Canada, Goran will be presented by the international sales company Wide Management, and will screen on August 2nd and 3rd. Postproduction was funded by the Croatian Audiovisual Centre, and cinema distribution in Croatia is set for January 2017 (Blitz Film and Video). 

Along with Goran, the festival will also screen three Croatian short films: Hidden Talent by Miran Miošić, Little Red Riding Hood, Once More by Ana Horvat, and the minority Croatian co-production Koyaa – Flower by Kolja Saksida.
