Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

Just one day ahead of the official announcement of its Tiger and Big Screen Competitions, International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) has revealed the complete line-up for the features in its Bright Future section.

IFFR offered an initial glimpse of the selection last month (see the news), confirming that Bright Future is the starting point for creative innovation and a platform that allows emerging filmmakers to present their personal unique cinematic vision. The main aim of the section is also to offer a unique overview of both unexplored ideas and crucial subject matters, as seen from the point of view of different cultures.
