Bero Beyer introduces our sections

We’re busy preparing our 48th edition of IFFR. In January and February, we’ll be bringing you twelve days of craziness and cinema: short films, feature films, experimental works, art, masterclasses, talks, music, parties… Where to begin? Get to know our four sections, the best way to find your way around our epic programme, as explained by our festival director Bero Beyer.

Four sections to guide your way

Whether you’re seeing one film at IFFR or thirty, use our sections to get inspired and find your way through 500 brilliant pieces of work.

  • Bright Future
    Where tomorrow’s filmmakers challenge the norms of cinema
  • Voices
    Bold storytelling by film auteurs with a confident voice
  • Deep Focus
    A look at cinema itself through retrospectives, compilations, art installations and more
  • Perspectives
    Thematic programmes investigating relevant social issues through cinema

This week we’re also announcing the first films in our programme:

Leto (2018)

A Russian biopic by Kirill Serebrennikov, which follows Viktor Tsoi in the Leningrad underground rock culture of the early 1980s.

Anteu (2018)

A playful narrative by João Vladimiro about a boy left as the last survivor in his village.
