Terremoto Santo, BRA 2017

Waldheims Walzer, AUT 2018
“There are few formal limitations when it comes to the selection of films, resulting in even greater freedom. Documentaries and feature films are given equal consideration. The films in the Forum straddle the line between art and cinema.”
Juck, SWE 2018
