Oldenburg Film Festival

25th Oldenburg Int'l Film Festival Sept. 12-16, 2018

Rated among the top 5 Film Festivals worldwide for Independent Films by American film critic Chris Gore in his esteemed 'Ultimate Film Festival Guide', and ranked »Top 25 Coolest Festivals in the World« by MovieMaker, Oldenburg has fostered its success with a strong commitment to innovative and independent filmmaking.

Labelled ‘the European Sundance’ by Variety, Hollywood Reporter, and Screen International, amongst others, Oldenburg has evolved while preserving its intimate atmosphere and founding purpose: to celebrate and support the diverse voices and visions of independent filmmakers, to honor the creativity of the artists upon which the Festival depends, and to create a unique experience and inspiring meeting place for filmmakers, audiences, and media professionals.

The only festival in the world to play films in jail and invite festival guests with inmates.

The icepick had been rammed deeply into Mladen Ribar’s heart. Tied to it is a short but direct message: corrupt pig! An apt description of the unethical building officer Mladen. But it would fit others of his kind equally. The land is diseased with corruption, fraud and cover-ups. Someone without any trust in the current legal system apparently is taking the law into his own hands. A self-declared judge and executioner using the ultima ratio to fight corruption – a brutal vendetta. The two Croatian investigators Maric and Perica are given this case that lays open the countries true pain in this laid-back vacation spot with a light blue sea and a sky devoid of clouds. As it should be for the better representatives of the crimegenre, the two policemen are soon faced with a moral dilemma. Confronted with the inadequacies of the system they represent, they now have to draw a line between good and evil – a line that has become rather blurry as of late. Michael Kreindl directs a balancing-act between a straight thriller, broken characters and plays skillfully with the danger that different interpretations of justice can create
