Aleksi is a troubled 28-year-old who has failed to find a job after graduating from college and is returning home to live under her parents' roof. With few options to stave off her boredom, Aleksi ignores her pressing responsibilities by pursuing romantic adventures with various men: Christian, an American photographer who she bonds with due to their similar interests, Goran, a local musician who she can't stand because of his traditional values, but with whom she has an intense physical chemistry, and Toni, an older, richer, charming Slovenian playboy who tries to lure her with the extravagance of yachts, parties and expensive drugs.

Barbara Vekarić (Dubrovnik, 1987) graduated from Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Zagreb, majoring in comparative literature, and earned her BA and MA degree in film directing at the Academy of Dramatic Art in Zagreb, Croatia. She wrote and directed a dozen short films, including First Lady of Dubrava (2011), which was screened at more than 50 international film festivals and won 7 awards. Barbara also directs commercials and music videos. Aleksi is her debut feature.

On a fall day in Croatia, two school kids meet on a bridge. They are about to admit something very important to each other. On the same day, an avalanche of events unfolds among people who are no means randomly directed to each other. It will result in a stopping of an elevator, a wheelchair, a night tram, a suicide threat, PTSD, wild sex, an age difference, a long silence driving to the unknown, standing in the rain, a brutal confession, a video from the past, deceiving a deaf refugee, traces of the Second World War, and a gentle kiss.

Anđelo Jurkas is a Croatian director, writer, law graduate, musician, music and film critic. He is the first author in the region to debut with a feature film trilogy, which includes Because of You (2016), Fuck Off I Love You (2017) and Happy End (in post-production). He directs live-action films, documentaries and commercials, music videos and experimental videoformats. He is also the author of dozen books, TV shows, and solo albums. He is also running an initiative to include pop-culture education in elementary and high-school curriculum.

She watches him through the window as he loads the final pieces of furniture into the truck. They are counting down the last hours in their home. Their seven-month-old baby is asleep, unaware of the trouble brewing. They will either vacate the apartment peacefully, or they will be forcefully evicted. Their home, her father's legacy, used to be their safe haven, their family nest. Now, corrupt courts, greedy bankers, and unscrupulous real estate investors have turned it into a site of their worst nightmares. As tensiona rise, they struggle to preserve their relationship. In the morning, as police knocks on their door, their future seems uncertain, but their options are very clear: either accept injustice or show resistance.

SINKING OBJECTS: A family gathering takes a strange turn when the daughter appears in front of her parents with a bruise on her eye and an unconvincing, clichéd excuse.

November 2017

Vera Artuković, a religious fanatic, suspects her younger sister Maša might be possessed by Satan. She asks the local priest, Viktor Supilo, for help, not knowing he is going through a crisis of faith. On the evening of his first exorcism, several uninvited characters appear. One of them is Lidija, a journalist at a conservative family TV channel, who comes with her cameraman Boris, who knows Maša from childhood. The last one is Sofia, a psychiatrist with a profound intolerance of religion. The cellar of the Artuković sisters becomes a zone of conflict between different characters, with dark secrets and past actions coming to the surface.

Siniša Mesjak, an up-and-coming, arrogant and ambitious politician, was set up with a scandal. In order to keep him away from the media, the government sends him away to Trećić, a remote Croatian island, to organise local elections. The island is isolated, with no telephone or internet connection, and its elderly inhabitants speak in a dialect that Siniša can't understand. With the help of Tonino, a local young man who serves as his assistant, he will try to complete the task that seven commissioners before him failed to accomplish.

Ivan Salaj (Zagreb, 1969) is a Croatian director and writer. He directed See You (1995), a mid-length film, awarded at the Filmfest Cottbus, as well as Resistance Day, which was a part of a feature anthology Zagreb Stories Vol. 3 (2015). The Eighth Commissioner is his debut feature.

PREMIERE STATUS
prosinac 2017, Zagreb, Lovran

A group of people of different ages and various interests. They all live in a small city and are connected in multiple ways. This is one of those cities where everybody knows everything about everyone – their lifestyle, their values, type of the car they own or where they spend their holidays. On the other hand, when some of those people need help, their neighbours tend to look the other way. The story follows a man who is trying to make this world a better place – in his own, slightly bizarre way.

Dino Kos (1992) works in film and video production. He has directed four short fiction films (Phone Booth; 2017, Alienation, 2016; Mm, 2015; Mopus deni, 2015) and three music videos. Chameleon is his debut feature.

Frano Barunčić (1990) is a full-time student of acting at the Academy of Applied Arts of the University of Rijeka. He is the president of Aion produkcija, where he works in production, directing and acting.
