NOSOROGI was created by a group of young Slovenian filmgraduates in 2008. In the first period of its existence, the collective produced a small lineup of carefully designed projects, which gained them recognition as one of the most innovative filmmakers group in the country.
After the completion of the documentary Small Houses (Hiške) by Matjaž Ivanišin and Darko Sinko in 2015, NOSOROGI released its first international title, Playing Men by Matjaž Ivanšin. The documentary was hailed by international critics among the most original films of the year and was screened at more than hundred festivals and art venues around 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-long research and production, Stories from the Chestnut Woods (Zgodbe iz kostanjevih gozdov), a debut feature by Gregor Božič (director-writer) 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 and an extensive festival tour around the world. The film is considered a breakthrough achievement of the new generation of Slovenian filmmakers.
