Yesterday our freshly printed festival programs arrived!

We are proud to announce that the IFFI festival program 2017 is now officially online! We hope you enjoy our diverse films from all over the world.

In our International Documentary Competition you will see Mirr, directed by Mehdi Sahebi, whom we are glad to welcome to the 26th IFFI in Innsbruck.

The documentary depicts the story of Binchey, a traditional peasant farmer from Mondulkiri, who was expelled from his land – like hundreds of thousands of farmers in Cambodia. Together with Binchey and other villagers, film director Mehdi Sahebi stages the story of this confiscation of the land and its ramifications.

Train Driver’s Diary is a 2016 Serbian drama film directed by Miloš Radović, which we will show in this year’s International Feature Fiction Competition.

It is an honour to welcome no less than two internationally renowned personalities of the film in Innsbruck! Both the director Miloš Radović and the leading actor Lazar Ristovski will visit the IFFI in May!

In our International Feature Fiction Competition for the Prize of the Province of Tyrol worth 5.500€ we will show Viejo Calavera (Dark Skull), directed by Kiro Russo. The Bolivian film was set to premier at the Locarno Film Festival 2016 in Switzerland.

A strikingly authentic and atmospheric drama set among the often literally subterranean lives of workers in the tin mines of Bolivia!

Our team is more than delighted to welcome co-producer and cinematographer Pablo Paniagua as a guest at the IFFI in May!

ANIŞOARA

directed by Ana-Felicia Scutelnicu.

“…a clear-eyed, unsentimental, and verygently liberating homage to all the girls of timesgone by and all the girls of times to come… “(Jessica Kiang, Variety)

The Unseen, written and directed by Perivi John Katjavivi, looks to tell ‘The Unseen’ stories of post-colonial Namibia.

It is the story of three young people as they navigate spaces, both emotionally and physically, in modern day post-colonial Namibia – spaces that are normally ‘unseen’.

The film will be shown in our International Feature Fiction Competition. Curious about the director’s views and stories? Exclusively meet Perivi John Katjavivi in May at the IFFI!
