The festival lasts for only three days (with an additional pre-event) and has a rather limited budget, so the number of presented feature movies is as of now still under ten. Some of them were Before Sunset (Richard Linklater, US, 2004), Drinking Buddies (Joe Swanberg, US, 2013), Hungry Man (Philip Martin, FR, 2013), Narco Cultura (Shaul Schwartz, MX, 2013), Submarine (Richard Ayoade, UK, 2010), tea Time (Maite Alberdi, CL, 2014) and What a Wonderful World (Anatol Durbală, MD, 2015).
Alongside these, short movies present anoter important festival feature and are usually done in collaboration with other festivals and institutions.
While the current Slovenian short film production is covered by the Kraken Film Society (who otherwise organise the film festival FeKK), a more international programme is done in co-operation with the Croatian Tabor Film Festival and the K3 International Short Film Festival, presenting the best short films of the respective festivals. A selection of films made at the MUVIT/6×60 movie-making marathon is also presented.
Another collaboration is the Odprto platno [The Open Canvas] project, which is done together with KUD SubArt and and is basically a public call for movies on certain given topics.
Additionally, there is a showcase of the most imaginative Slovenian music videos which is curated by the web-portal Podoba-Glasba.si. In presenting a programme of animated features, Film Mixer also collaborates with Animateka International Animated Film Festival.
