Double (Dublu) (Country: Romania; Year: 2016; Director: Catrinel Dănăiaţă)

Home Sweet Home (Country: Kosovo, Macedonia; Year: 2016; Director: Faton Bajraktari)
Agron was long considered dead. His army buddies saw him die during the Kosovo conflict, and thus his return home is beyond surprising. Joy, however, soon shifts to a consideration of practical problems, and the man is forced by a variety of circumstances to remain dead – at least officially.
House Of Others (Country: Georgia, Russia, Spain, Croatia; Year: 2016; Director: Rusudan Glurjidze)

Eliška moves back with her daughter Karolínka to her husband’s native village. But something strange is going on and, as the temperature rises, Eliška becomes increasingly jittery. Fear is all-pervading and spectres move freely between dream and reality.
