For its part, Off the Beaten… Screens, a section dedicated to stylistic solutions and innovative narration, will be presenting two debut films: Bosnia’s Cherry Juice by Mersiha Husagic and Hungary’s Cactusman by Olivér Rudolf.

Ten titles will grace the Documentary Competition, most of which directed by young, talented women directors, including the recent winner of Amsterdam’s IDFA, Armenian filmmaker Shoghakat Vardanyan with her movie 1489. Well worth a mention amongst the documentaries screening Out of Competition are a selection of titles by directors hailing from the Italian region of Friuli Venezia Giulia, including Al di là dei lupi by Ennio Guerrato, 50 anni di CLU by Erika Rossi, and Il Cinema Volta by Martin Turk.
