ID Check is the common theme in all film sections during this IFFR. The theme investigates and shows us how we look at ourselves, how we interact with others, and how we can build a society together.
The Deep Focus section looks at the omnipresence of the camera. In a series of documentaries drawn from all over the world, in Community Cameras IFFR is looking for elements that promote the formation of communities. From television pirates to VHS smugglers and from Hollywood rebels to porn activists: the common factor is always the film camera, which not only records, but also brings people with a particular vision together, offering an anchor point for a micro-community amidst a constantly shifting society.
