Grossmann Film and Wine Festival

The 16th Grossmann Fantastic Film and Wine Festival is Approaching

All the fans of fantastic films and divine wine are invited to the 16th edition of Grossmann Fantastic Film and Wine Festival, Slovenia's first and largest fantastic film festival. In the idyllic landscape of the region of Prlekija, eight days of festival events will take place from the 10th to the 12th July in Ormož and from the 14th to the 18th of July in Ljutomer.

Once again the audience will be able to enjoy the best current fantastic films and music documentaries in our competition programs – Vicious Cat for best feature film, Slak's Vicious Cat for best short film, Melies d'argent for best European fantastic short film (given by the Méliès International Festivals Federation), and Noisy Cat for best music documentary – as well as a special selection of classic films and genre milestones.

Among numerous cinematic delicacies of this year's selection, you will find psychological horror THE LODGE, English-speaking debut by Severin Fiala & Veronika Franz, action comedy FIRST LOVE by cult Japanese director Takashi Miike, shocking war drama THE PAINTED BIRD, Czech director Václav Marhoul's adaptation of the controversial novel by Jerzy Kosinski, disturbing US horror 1BR by David Marmor, the new Wakaliwood action extravaganza CRAZY WORLD by IGG Nabwana, Argentinian post-apocalyptic horror I AM TOXIC by Pablo Parés, the first Venezuelan zombie film INFECTION by Flavio Pedota, Panama's first horror film DIABLO ROJO PTY by Sol Moreno, the international horror anthology DEATHCEMBER, US psychedelic horror BLISS by Joe Begos and visually stunning Russian sci-fi hit COMA by Nikita Argunov.

Among Slovenian films we present two new crime films, political thriller ALL AGAINST ALL by Andrej Košak and neo-noir CORPORATION by Matej Nahtigal, as well as a special screening of 1991 dark comedy OPERATION CARTIER by Miran Zupanič (based on a novel by Miha Mazzini, who also wrote the screenplay).

With a special open air screening we will honour the 40th anniversary of cult Serbian comedy WHO'S SINGIN' OVER THERE by Slobodan Šijan, this time in a new digitally restored version.

In our music documentary competition we present the Michael Gira / Swans documentary WHERE DOES A BODY END? by Marco Porsia, the film about the legendary Belgrade rock band Električni orgazam entitled ELECTRIC ORGASM FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS by Marija Vukić, portrait of the iconic vocalist of Croatian punk legends KUD Idijoti TUSTA by Andrej Korovljev, disturbing display of the life of leader of US shock rock band The Mentors EL DUCE TAPES by Ryan Sexton, David Lawrence and Rodney Ascher, and BURE BARETA by Robert Bubalo, Mario Vukadin and Renato Tonković, an in-depth look into the mind of Croatian punk rock poet Goran Bare.

The main feature of our wine program is the Vicious Cat Wine Champion competition for best wine, this year featuring five wineries.

This year's amazing poster was once again created by Serbian illustrator and comic book artist Ivica Stevanović.

In our accompanying program we present a special anti-corona edition of the traditional Zombie Walk – Zombie Drive-by, organized in collaboration with Citroën Club Slovenia.

As usual, numerous workshops will take place: the traditional short film workshop Little Workshop of Horrors, screenwriting workshop mentored by acclaimed writer and author Miha Mazzini, the film criticism workshop “Ostrenje pogleda” by Maja Kranjc and Robert Kuret and the Pimp My Zombie Car workshop for ornamenting the vehicles participating in the Zombie Drive-by, organized in collaboration with Youth Center Ormož and mentored by Petja Kolenko.

In Ljutomer we also offer free camping for all the festival visitors.

All this and more awaits you at the 16th edition of Grossmann Fantastic Film and Wine Festival. For more information visit our website offering daily updates and news, while the complete festival program will be published in the following days.
