IFFR announces competition

IFFR-director Rutger Wolfson: "We are proud to present this very strong group of talents in the Tiger Competition, our platform that has launched so many of their colleagues into the international film world over the last thirteen years. Making this selection, we have been moved by the many different stories told in very different ways, taking us to the hearts and minds of characters from all over the world, from Kazakhstan, USA, Denmark, Ukraine, China, Greece and Chile, amongst others.

Lamb of God opens festival
The festival will open January 23 with the world premiere of Lamb of God (Cordero de Dios), the 1st feature by Lucía Cedrón. It's a gripping family drama about the kidnap of a 77-year old during Argentina's economic crisis in 2002. The film is also selected for the Tiger Competition and has been supported by the festival's Hubert Bals Fund

Wolfson kicks off IFFR 2008
For 37 years, the festival has followed filmmakers who energetically and waywardly follow their own course. This year, one focus of the festival is on a specific artistic and aesthetic view within this tradition. To label it, we have borrowed a term from chemistry: Free Radicals.
