Morana by Borna Ivan Masnec.
A film about teenage passion and gloom, about self-discovery and getting lost along the way. Growing up sometimes makes no sense at all and being part of a bizarre love triangle doesn’t help either. A captivating story about Pepe and her friend Aurora, that makes you want to spend more time with the characters and watch them evolve. The most rounded film of the whole competition with great direction, screenplay and amazing, genuine acting. The Grand Prix of Dubrovnik Film Festival goes to
Cinderella / Pepeljuga by Melita Mukavec.
