Festival Debuts

Talent needs company, and that's where the festival excels.

We've helped new actors, directors and writers to emerge and to thrill, as these six very different films demonstrate. Chase thrillers meet coming-of-age dramas plus stories of division and tribal mayhem. Their creators each contribute to the rich mix of world cinema.
