My Horrible Sis
When the mother of a ten-year-old Sonya and the father of an eleven-year-old Lena decide to marry, two completely different girls become sisters. Now they have to share the same room, one class and friends, and most importantly, constantly fight for the attention of their parents. Both of them dream of getting rid of another "sister" and get their lives back. Lena and Sonya announce a temporary truce to break up the parents and disrupt the wedding...
A Fleeting Encounter
Grappling with a mid-life crisis, Sacha leaves his girlfriend and escapes to his grandparents’ Airbnb. He is surprised by the presence of Marjan, an Iranian woman who is facing her own marital crisis.
They are both annoyed at having to share the apartment and rather than finding a place of retreat, tension builds. When Mina, a vibrant American, arrives, their mutual prejudices give way to curiosity and complicity. What began as an involuntary encounter becomes a moment of new possibilities.
The main goal of the festival is a cultural exchange between countries. Diversity regarding the origin of films is the number-one criteria for selection. No more than one film is selected per country represented so every film will have the honor to represent its country. However each year a country is honored and several films originating from that country will be screened. The honored country is announced together with the selection.
The Festival is taking place from 18th March until 1st April.
