From the 1st to the 10th of November, Geneva will sparkle, as it does every year, under the bright lights of the GIFF, now an unmissable event for cinephiles, industry professionals or, quite simply, the curious. Digital projects, special screenings and gatherings linked to the seventh art and to television will all bolster the offering of the GIFF, which will be welcoming, for its 25th edition, prestigious guests such as Xavier Dolan, Anne Dorval, Park Chan-wook, David Cronenberg, Clotilde Courau and Costa-Gavras, not to mention Tom Fontana, Elia Suleiman, Roger Avary (Pulp Fiction screenwriter) and Rebecca Zlotowski, among many others.
