Thirty-two films chosen for Up to 10,000 bucks programme

After carefully reviewing over 200 films, director and producer Srdan Golubović chose 32 films for this year’s Up to 10,000 bucks programme.

The chosen films vary in genre – fiction, documentary, animation, experimental, each one revealing original and daring expressions of these authors. “The common denominator for all these different genre films is rebellion. Rebelion of an individual against the system, rebellion of the oppressed and the impoverished, rebellion against bureaucracy and its absurdity, rebellion against wanton neoliberal slavery, rebellion of a common man for whom freedom means the ability to feed his own family” said this year’s selector.

Despite low budget, these authors managed to employ their creativity, and express themselves through the language of the film, leaving a mark on all those who had seen these accomplishments.

As is tradition, the position of the selector for this programme is left to the winner of the Grand Prix for best domestic feature from the previous year, which means that this year’s selector is Srdan Golubović, director of last year’s winner film “Circles“.

We hereby wish to thank all the authors, production companies and schools which submitted their films, and to congratulate authors of chosen films.

Below is the list of films that will be screened at Cinema City 2014. Rest assured, they will certainly leave a lasting impression on you:
