Monday marked the unveiling of the fascinating programme of the 21st edition of the Geneva International Film Festival Tous Écrans, which will be held in Geneva from 6 to 14 November. Emmanuel Cuénod, the general and artistic director of the Festival, has promised us a sensual and sensorial edition, alternating big names from film the world over with young and exciting newly discovered filmmakers. An ambitious and extremely varied programme that skilfully mixes film, television and ‘digital’ supports in the never-ending search for innovation and opportunities. A multi-disciplinary approach that makes the Tous Écrans Festival positively innovative. 

The Festival is set to welcome a number of guests, including Anton Corbijn (to whom a special tribute is being dedicated), Anna Karina, Asia Argento and Claire Denis. The International Competition (which brings together everything from fictional films to documentaries and mockumentaries), features, among others, Babai [+see also:
