Known for its special focus on retrospectives, New Horizons will home in on four fairly controversial and well-known figures: Catalan auteur Albert Serra; French filmmaker Olivier Assayas; avant-garde Japanese poet, dramatist, writer, film director and photographer Shūji Terayama; and, as an integral part of a special focus on New Argentinian Cinema, Albertina Carri.

Finally, the focus section “The Body in Which I Live” will be a pretext for investigating how the body is treated in the modern world, while the “Third Eye: Spirituality, Magic and Witches” thematic cycle will take a closer look at portraits of the body and corporality in film, and “Lost Lost Lost – Movies from the Outer Edge” is dedicated to those filmmakers who aim to operate at the extreme outer reaches of auteur cinema.
