CINEMATOGRAPHERS' DEBUTS COMPETITION 2015 LINE-UP!
Friday October 16th, 2015
Cinematographers’ Debuts Competition was initiated in 2010 due to the Festival’s increasing openness to the noteworthy artists and the new film phenomena they create. The idea of creating additional competition section was a natural consequence of our previous activities. For years we have been promoting innovative projects that combine intellectual freedom, remarkable insight into world affairs and a desire to inspire other artists of the screen.
Cinematographers’ Debuts Competition bring new discoveries: great movies of high artistic value and great filmmakers whose new ventures surprise not only the Jury members but all audiences around the world as well.

Anna “Dino” Dinovic is a twenty-something Swede who emigrated along with thousands of other young people to adjacent Norway in search of good jobs and the fulfilment of their life passions. However, her stay in Oslo is not going the way she wanted. It certainly does not help that Dino feels lost and has no idea what she would like to become in the future. Everything changes when she accidentally gets an odd job babysitting in the affluent house of Steffen Dahl. Energetic, strong, and independent Dino soon finds herself being courted by the lonely man and idolized by his two daughters. The safe and boring Dahl household is plunged into a state of emotional chaos. Will the girl’s presence be a positive influence on the family, or a destructive force? Underdog is a contemporary humanist story about people trying to reinvent themselves, and a timely tale set in the reality of the economic crisis that shifted power from Sweden to Norway.
