This is an initiative by Festival Scope.
This year the Festivals offers you 30 new, unreleased films organised into six thematic sections: Wacky and offbeat stories in WTF…rench!?, life-changing journeys in Hit the Road!, the sometimes painful, or comical, transition from childhood to adulthood in Teen Stories, the (at times homicidal) obsessions of disturbing characters in French and Furious, love stories of the kind you only find in France in Love “à la Française”, and, finally, a selection of innovative works in New Horizons.
Our recommendations include Ava (Lea Mysius, 2017) and 1:54 (Yan England, 2017).
International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) offers a high quality line-up of carefully selected fiction and documentary feature films, short films and media art. The festival’s focus is on recent work by talented new filmmakers. However, within the four sections the Festival presents, there is also room for retrospectives and themed programmes. IFFR actively supports new and adventurous filmmaking talent through its co-production market CineMart, its Hubert Bals Fund, Rotterdam Lab and other industry activities.
The Berlinale is the largest and one of the oldest film festivals in the world. Two journalists from DMovies, Victor Fraga and Tiago Di Mauro, will attend the event this year and unearth the dirt from under the red carpet firsthand and exclusively for you!
