This year, the selection rustled up by Frédéric Boyer, the artistic director of the Les Arcs Film Festival, has a very feminine hint to it, as eight out of the ten films in Work-in-Progress 2015 (see the complete list below) are directed by women: Greece’s Elina Psikou, Belgium’s Fien Troch, Italy’s Irene Dioniso, Switzerland’s Anja Kofmel, Poland’s Alina Skrzeszewska (who has lived in both Berlin and the United States), Croatia’s Hana Jusic, Georgia’s Mariam Khatchvani (with a British production) and Afghanistan’s Shahrbanoo Sadat (with a Danish movie). They are joined by Romania’s Daniel Sandu and Norway’s Jonas Matzow Gulbrandsen. Interestingly, the programme includes five feature debuts and two documentaries (including an animated one), and ten countries are represented in all.

The films selected for Work-in-Progress are:

Chris the Swiss by Anja Kofmel – an animated documentary produced by Dschoint Ventschr Filmproduktion (Switzerland) and Nukleus Film (Croatia) – feature debut

Dede by Mariam Khatchvani – produced by 20 Steps Production (Georgia) - coproduced by Film & Music Entertainment (UK) – feature debut
