“Yugoslavia”, once spelled and called "Jugoslavia", was a country in Southeast Europe during most of the 20th century. As Wikipedia would define it.

Today most of its (former) citizens prefer to call it former-Yugoslavia, for many reasons and with many consequences.  “That was a real country” many of its former citizens would say today.

Undoubtedly, this former, or future Yugoslavia, or Jugoslavija, forms a space today, even if imaginary, with its own dynamics of creation and production, including cinema.

Who are the Jugoslav authors today, if any? Can we speak of Jugoslav cinema today? How does Jugoslav cinema work, emptied of the formal structures of Jugoslavia as a state?
