For IFFR’s opening film Riders of Justice, Mikkelsen cooperated with director Anders Thomas Jensen for the fifth time.

Kelly Reichardt

American filmmaker Kelly Reichardt, winner of the Robby Müller Award 2021, talks about her films and how she makes them.

Benoît Jacquot & Charlotte Gainsbourg

For his new film Suzanna Andler, director and screenwriter Benoît Jacquot (Les adieux à la reine, Trois coeurs) once again joins forces with actor Charlotte Gainsbourg – one of the most interesting faces of European cinema. An in-depth discussion of their collaboration, directing focused on actors and the influence of Marguerite Duras on Jacquot’s career.

Dea Kulumbegashvili & Nicolás Jaar

Music is hardly heard in the award-winning film Beginning, but sound plays a prominent role in this feature debut about a Jehova’s Witness resisting patriarchal society. Chilean composer Jaar and Georgian filmmaker Kulumbegashvili discuss their unique collaboration on the film’s soundtrack, as well as the crossovers between sound and image.
