The competitive section Encounters comprises 15 films, all of which are world premieres. There are two first features plus one debut of a documentary form.17 countries are represented. Six films were directed by women.

“Each film selected in Encounters challenges the predetermined categories with which we evaluate cinema. Surreal detections, ironic tales, sentimental comedies, observational documentaries, parables and therapeutic exercises are just some of the genres at play here. At the same time, all fifteen titles together offer an incredibly rich picture of the world of the 21st century, with all its beauty and tragedies”, says Carlo Chatrian, Artistic Director.
