Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

Final preparations are underway for the 11th Beaune International Thriller Film Festival, which will take place between 3 - 7 April and which will be enriched this year by a double homage: not one, but two filmmakers will join the wonderful assortment of directors to whom the festival has previously paid tribute. Indeed, following in the footsteps of William Friedkin, James Gray, David Lynch, John McTiernan, Bertrand Tavernier, Brian De Palma, Park Chan-wook and David Cronenberg, the explosive Danish director, Nicolas Winding Refn, will now take centre stage, travelling to the Burgandy town for the screening of his entire film back-catalogue. Tribute will also be paid to the German filmmaker Fatih Akin, who will share his views on the thriller genre and will be conversing with audiences on 6 April.
