The Unforeseen 2018 : Awards

Voted by : Nikola Gocić, Dragan Dimčić, Ivan Velisavljević

GRAND PRIX goes to (ex-aequo) :

Sylvia Schedelbauer for her film "Wishing Well"

"Flickering is used to reveal a parallel film dimension, which unpacks a world inside the world through an immersive audiovisual experience. This eco-parable fully captivates our sensory and sensual instincts while uncovering dark tales of the human destruction of nature."

Michael Fleming for his film "Never Never Land"

"Sharp visual comment and critique on/of the modern (or eternal) obsession with physical beauty and ME-galomania. Rapid-fire montage of disturbing erotica and footage of surgical interventions which puts the idea of aesthetic operations in the "f...nasty" folder, Visually opressive and abrasive, but utterly memorable. "


Atoosa Pour Hosseini for her film "Antler"

"A film of subtle poetics and expressive aesthetics achieved through the hypnotizing intertwining of archive and authorial footage, "Antler" erases the boundaries between fiction and documentary, introducing the viewer to a mysterious and, to a certain degree, fairy-tale-ish world of oneiric athmosphere. Formally seductive, and challenging to decipher, this "ecological fantasy" (for the lack of a more precise definition) transforms a botanical garden into a laboratory of evocative images and sounds, in a process that could be identified as alchemy."


Joshua Dean Tuthill for his film "Black Dog"

"A surreal account of cold war dynamics and space explorations is interwoven with a tale of two brothers and dysfunctional family in their own private cold war - gone mad story. Confusion, insanity and ominous malevolence soon take over- devil had the last say-so in this one."

Congratulations to the awarded movies!

Unforeseen 2017 / Awards


Cine-Scope program (Super 8 and 16mm) curated by Marko Milićević (Kino pleme)


director : Aaron Zeghers

Canada, 2017, 12', Super 8mm


Everything Turns... is an open investigation into number mythology on Super-8 film. Long exposures and various animation techniques process and restructure the science behind it. This results in a type of almanac of time, space and place that humorously references Hans Richter.



director : Mike Rollo 

Canada, 2017, 14', 16mm


The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation opened the doors of the CBK Transmitter Station in 1939 to serve the prairie region of Canada. Farewell Transmission is equal parts indexical record of the demolition of CBK in 2015 and subjective response to the residual media documenting the event. The building is framed with tension preceding its destruction: emulsion pulsates as if with decades of radio transmission, creating an unsettled eulogy for a cultural institution.




Showcase - Digital experimental cinema curated by Ivica Đorđević and Adam Ranđelović (CZKD)


director : Emperor Bikutoru

Russia, 2017, 12' 32''


Emperor Bikutoru occupies the main role and introduces himself to the digital space, fully realize his idea of combining digital and virtual. It is important for him to turn to Japanese visual culture and put himself into a self-mythological story. The main principle of this work like many others from Emperor Bikutoru is to saturate his viewer.
