share info
The Open Horizons section of the 56th Thessaloniki International Film Festival highlights the most recent trends in worldwide independent production, featuring thematically original and aesthetically challenging films. Running in parallel, the Special Screenings section presents the newest additions in the work of renowned auteurs.  

The Open Horizons section includes a variety of films, directed by filmmakers who have already established themselves in the independent film scene, as well as promising newcomers. Louder Than Bombs by Joachim Trier (Oslo, August 31st), Chronic by Michel Franco, Pablo Aguero’s Eva Doesn’t Sleep and Arabian Nights by Portuguese director Miguel Gomes are only few of the films programmed. 

Some of this year’s most anticipated films will be screened as part of the Special Screenings section. Francofonia by Aleksandr Sokurov, Son of Saul by László Nemes (Grand Prize of the Jury, FIPRESCI Prize, Cannes Film Festival), The Treasure by Corneliu Porumboiu (Un Certain Regard-A Certain Talent Prize, Cannes Film Festival) and Jafar Panahi΄s Taxi Tehran (Golden Berlin Bear, FIPRESCI Prize, Berlin Film Festival), to mention some of them. 

The Treasure by Corneliu Porumboiu

The Currents section returns with a selection of experimental offerings, set in several parts of the world. The Brazilian drama Hopefulls by Ives Rosenfeld and Pietro Marcello’s contemporary fairytale Lost and Beautiful from Italy are two of the films included in the program.
