IFFR’s Bright Future section unveils 24 titles
A Brief Excursion by Igor Bezinović

The International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) has announced the 24 titles selected for its Bright Future section, which focuses on emerging directing talents. The list includes six world and European premieres and another 18 features that have already been seen at other events in recent months.

Most of the titles were co-produced within the CineMart market or co-financed by IFFR’s Hubert Bals Fund in a clear example of fruitful creative collaborations backed by the international-driven professional side of the festival.

The Hivos Tiger Competition, IFFR's flagship competition, is part of the Bright Future programme. Debut directors who have not been selected for the Hivos Tiger Competition and whose films will have their global or international premieres at IFFR 2017 are eligible for a Bright Future Award. The complete selection, as well as the competition titles, will be unveiled at the beginning of January. IFFR 2017 will take place between January 25 and February 5.
