Arkadii Nepytaliuk), “The Line” (dir. Peter Bebjak, Slovakia, Ukraine), “Easy” (dir. Andrea Magnani, Italy, Ukraine), and “ProGamer” (dir. Justin Agnew, USA, South Korea, Sweden, Ukraine). Besides, Philip Sotnychenko’s short film “Technical Break” will compete in PÖFF Shorts, and Askold Kurov’s documentary “The Trial: the State of Russia vs Oleg Sentsov” will be screened as the festival’s special event. Two feature debuts, Kateryna Gornostai’s “The Floor Is Lava” and Nariman Aliev’s “Homeward”, will compete in the film industry section at Baltic Event Co-Production Market.
