Concerns about the environment have never been becoming more important than they are today. The modern era is associated with plenty of environmental issues, with which every corner of the globe is struggling. As a result, the selection of eco-films represents a contribution to raising awareness about one of the most challenging problems of the twenty-first century through the lens of short and long films, with which we hope to demonstrate that we can care for the future of our planet in every sphere, through various activities, and in a creative way.WWF Adria is this year's eco selection partner.

While we follow the most significant current film achievements of filmmakers from all over the world, we need to remember those who shaped the history of the seventh art. These directors revolutionized the world of film and the world beyond it, so we dedicate this selection to film art innovators and symbols. This year, we will be seeing on the big screen the most famous works of Jean-Luc Godard, a representative of the French New Wave and an eminent critic of French cinematography. Godard is known as one of the world's most revolutionary filmmakers. He used his films to reflect his ideas on history, politics, philosophy, and other topics, and he impacted many international directors, including Tarantino, Scorsese, Jarmusch, and Wenders.

In the desire to take their first significant steps into the world of film with their eyes wide open, we bring animated films, workshops, and other content adapted to different ages to the youngest viewers. The children's program aims to catch the attention and previously unknown affinities of curious viewers, who are typically most difficult critics. We tried to create a new environment for small people and future great innovators through the selection of films and the associated program. The Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Serbia, WWF Adria, Furuna Crafts, Ilbe Studios, and MultiMost Fest are this year's partners for the children's selection.

Following that, he appeared in the films Hair, The Godfather III, and the extremely popular television shows Dark Angel and Twin Peaks.
