Other than White Room, Jakov Nola’s Counter-offensive has also been included in the same program.

The screening of Counter-offensive at the festival in Drama is scheduled for Monday, 16 September. 

The focus of this year’s Balkan Student Panorama programme is on Slovenian short films, while the focus on Croatian films in the Balkan Panorama programme was in 2017.

The International Short Film Festival in Drama is the most important festival of its kind in Greece and it gathers together filmmakers from throughout the world. The fact that the most successful films in Drama are further nominated for the European Film Award gives it a special importance.
