NOSOROGI was launched as a creative alliance by a group of young graduates from Ljubljana film school. Between 2015 and 2019, the collective produced a small lineup of carefully crafted projects, which gained them recognition among the progressive forces of the new regional cinema.
In 2017, NOSOROGI released its first international title, Playing Men, an essay documentary by Matjaž Ivanšin. The film was hailed by international critics as one of the most offbeat films of the year and was screened at more than hundred festivals and art venues across the world, among them at Rotterdam, Sarajevo, FID Marseille, True/False, Crossing Europe, in Pompidou Centre and at The Museum of the Moving Images in New York.
In 2019, after a decade lasting research and production, Stories from the Chestnut Woods (Zgodbe iz kostanjevih gozdov), a debut feature by Gregor Božič (writer-director) and Marina Gumzi (writer-producer) was premiered at Toronto film festival. The premiere was followed by a sweep of a record number of awards at the Festival of Slovenian Film, the award for the best debut at Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival, the Jury Award at the Nara biennial in Japan, and an extensive festival tour.
