Old friends from the world of film: new work from established filmmakers, auteurs and festival veterans. In IFFR's new programming structure, a special place is created for mature filmmakers with a distinctive approach in their work, a signature style. In this programme, experienced festival visitors will find the greatest concentration of established names of autonomous film artists who impose a very personal view, disregarding all trends or the impact of technological developments.
The audience will be surprised by both the stylistic freedom and the radical content these creators manage to maintain. Each of the films testifies of a singular, increasingly rare approach within an industry that verges rather to the formulaic concept of arthouse cinema.
