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!
