Within the framework of the 52nd FEST, which lasts from 23 February to 3 March, the Belgrade audience will be presented with domestic directors of the younger generation. Their latest films will premiere at the festival, three of which are in FEST’s Main Competition programme: ‘Working Class Goes to Hell’ by Mladen Đorđević (24 February), ‘Lilacs’ by Siniša Cvetić (27 February) and ‘That’s It for Today’ by Marko Đorđević (1 March). 

Mladen Đorđević, well known to the FEST audience, whose films we saw in 2005 (‘Made in Serbia’) and 2020 (‘Vienna Hallways’) at this festival, now returns with the film ‘Working Class Goes to Hell’, a co-production between Serbia, Greece, Bulgaria, Montenegro, Croatia and Romania.    

Đorđević is the director and screenwriter of a dark drama about a group of former workers who, after losing their loved ones, their jobs and their dignity in a fire and dubious privatization, resort to the supernatural in their fight for justice.    

The cast is comprised of Tamara Krcunović, Leon Lučev, Momo Pićurić, Ivan Đorđević, Lidija Kordić, Mirsad Tuka, Szilvia Krizsan, Olivera Viktorović, Tomislav Trifunović, Dobrila Stojnić...

According to critics, Đorđević remains true to his deeply imaginative and dark style with his latest film.


After several short films that were screened and awarded at festivals, Siniša Cvetić, in an authorial duo with screenwriter David Jakovljević, presents his second full-length film at FEST, ‘Lilacs’, which depicts the face and the reverse of the film and TV industry in Serbia today.   

The main characters are Katarina and Igor, actors who are a couple both on and off the screen. Blinded by flashes and deafened by applause, although inseparable, they have neither heard nor seen each other for a long time, until the awards ceremony for the best series of the year. At the party where the whole crew gathers, it becomes clear that their lives are a bigger melodrama than the one they filmed. The cast includes Sloboda Mićalović, Ivan Bosiljčić, Gordan Kičić, Mima Karadžić, Isidora Janković, Jovan Jovanović, Jana Bjelica, Nebojša Dugalić, Pavle Čemerikić, Nenad Okanović, Vahid Džanković, Petar Vasiljević...    


Marko Đorđević, the multi-awarded director for his debut feature film ‘My Morning Laughter’ (2019), brings his film ‘That’s It for Today’ to the 52nd FEST.

The film was written and directed by Đorđević and stars Filip Đurić, Ivana Vuković, Nikola Rakočević, Goran Bogdan, Miona Pejaković, Milica Jovanović.     

‘That’s It for Today’ shows how the Šarenac siblings succeed in luring their eldest brother to come home by preparing his favorite dessert - coconut cubes. Time seems to cease to exist, and a fairy tale of happy people unfolds. Seemingly ordinary summer days turn extraordinary. In love with life, they elevate reality above the ground, dispersing dark clouds with their joyous spirit.
