). More importantly, under the YAAAS! label, the festival has devised a full programme dedicated to film education, the acquisition of media competence and DIY video production, aimed at 15- to 20-year-olds, in collaboration with educator and artist Robert Hinterleitner and the HBLA for Artistic Design Linz.

In addition to the traditional non-competitive European Panorama Fiction and Documentary sections (see the line-ups here), the Working Worlds thematic segment this year deals with the somewhat thorny topic of “women and work” under the title Independent Women. 

This year's Tribute section is dedicated to Catalan filmmaker Jaime Rosales, while the Spotlight sidebar focuses on a leading female figure in European cinema for the third time. After Yeşim Ustaoğlu and Ada Solomon, Linz has chosen Albanian filmmaker Iris Elezi, a co-founder of the Albanian Cinema Project initiative intended to preserve the national film heritage, who will showcase a mix of historical and current films from her country. 

The festival will open with five films in parallel: Elezi's own Bota [+leggi anche:
