The 24th Geneva International Film Festival (GIFF) (2 to 10 November) will offer its audience a total of 164 films in Swiss, European, international and world premiere, 34 of which are immersive projects. Enriched by the presence of 250 international guests, including the English director Peter Greenaway, previous winner of the Film & Beyond Prix, which has been awarded to film personalities since 2014 who have been able to explore other artistic practices, pushing themselves beyond the filmic medium. There will be a meet and greet with the director, as well as an exhibition of a series of his drawings and screenings of two of his emblematic films: The Draughtsman’s Contract and A Zed & Two Noughts

GIFF, supported by renewed financial funds from the city of Geneva, seems to want to forcefully show off its spirit and go against the grain this year. And its international programme (a total of 10 films) definitely heads in this direction thanks to strong and surprising films united by a desire to show a "different" society, free from the dictates of efficiency and perfection. 

Among the European films to be presented this year are Boys Cry [+lee también:

As is the case every year, GIFF will also be presenting various TV series as part pf its international TV series competition, its Serial Day & Night TV marathon and a retrospective dedicated to three rare TV series shown in their entirety by key directors such as Rainer W Fassbinder (Eight Hours Don't Make a Day), Anne-Marie Miéville and Jean-Luc Godard (France/tour/détour/deux/enfants) and Andrzej Wajda (A Year Go by, as Days Go by).
