What characterizes the recent Balkan film is growth of quality in film production, global distribution and participation in many important film festivals.
Worth mentioning are "The Chicken" chosen by European Film Academy the best short film of 2014, and "The Balcony" which was screened in more than 120 film festivals since its premiere at Venice Film Festival in 2013. What does not change is the directors' unique approach to current topics which are characteristic for their countries and culture, as well as a typical Balkan way of confession. The originality of daily life stories is very much reflected in cinematographic language, which brings these stories closer to the audience. The authors have the opportunity to express their everyday experiences and share them with others.
