Kosovo`s More Raça and Romania`s Andrei Gruzsniczki features will be presented during the third edition of the industry event Glocal in Progres within the 67th edition of San Sebastián International Film Festival (20-28 September). The festival is still willing to support films at the post-production stage made in any European language besides English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Russian.

Kosovo’s More Raça, who participated in Berlinale Talents 2019 and already has three shorts to her name, shows the difficult situation of a long-term unemployed man in Kosovo in "Andromeda Galaxy". Romania’s Andrei Gruzsniczki, whose previous feature `Quod erat demonstrandum" had a successful international festival run, signs in "Emil" a tale of mourning and ghosts in a small Romanian hamlet, with touches of black humour. Lastly, Catalan filmmakers Pau Cruanyes and Gerard Vidal explore in their first feature film, "Yesterday’s Two Nights", the reaction of three youngsters to the sudden death of a close friend. 

Glocal in Progress will run on September 23, 24 and 25, coinciding with Films in Progress 36 and with the VIII Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum. Of the six films presented at the two previous editions, three have been selected for the Festival’s different sections: in 2018 Telmo Esnal’s "Dantza" participated in the Official Selection in a special screening, and Hadrian Marcu’s "A Decent Man"] was in New Directors, while this year "Nematoma" by Ignas Jonynas, winner at last year’s Glocal in Progress 2018, will compete in New Directors.
