You Have the Night 14:00 - 15:48 in Pathé 3
The Gold-Laden Sheep & the Sacred Mountain 18:15 - 19:57 in Pathé 5

Mostly Asian and Latin-American cinema. Two interesting experimental filmmakers from Spain to discover. Highest expectations for Diamantino, Killing, Dead Horse Nebula and Manta Ray. That last one will get a regular release in the Netherlands too, just like Nuestro Tiempo, but I wanted to see them at a great venue with a good crowd, hopefully directors present and such.

Any other IFFR visitors on the forum? (Lonewolf, but there must be more right...)

They have a lot of stuff going on!
it is always too much :) Paradjanov is also in a (small) spotlight indeed
The biggest retrospective item is "unfinished films"
I'm doing a few older movies like Juniper Tree and Gefangnisbilder, but mostly opted for the new stuff this year

"unfinished films"
yeah he had a lot of those :lol:

There's supposedly a book of six or seven of his screenplays for unfilmed films but I can't seem to find the book. anywhere. :/

sounds like just the kind of film festival I'd enjoy but I'm approximately 5k miles away and I've heard hitchhiking the Atlantic isn't recommended this time of year. Hope you enjoy it, beavis!
