After a long cinematic journey, the land of vicious cat offers -just for you- something entirely different from sturdy seats in the cinema. Just a few kilometers away from the festival site is where the wine-growing region of Prlekija spreads. It is a unique environment, where friendly local people are more than happy to reveal to you some scripts for hilarious comedies as you've never seen or heard before, all of that accompanied by most delicious of wines and local foods. The hilltops, all neatly covered with vine and wine cellars, provide astounding panoramas of the Panonian plane, which is just made for the admirers of an extraordinary genre. In this movie of Pomurje region, one of the biggest stars is Jeruzalem, in all of its idyllic calm, where time ceases to exist if you only allow it. An unforgettable role is also played by the river Mura that guides you with its discrete power to the Island of love, where you can get acquainted with cultural and natural heritage of mysterious Pomurje.
No, this is no corny sugarcoated flick, it's just the domain of the old charmer, vicious cat!
Let yourself be enchanted by the land under the fierce cat's protection, and all wishes to inhabit another cinematic universe will dissapear...
