Aside from the documentary section (TFFdoc) - where humankind’s relationship with the world around it is a key, stand-out theme - and the line-up for movies of a more experimental kind (Onde), the TorinoFilmLab film selection will also be making a return, with 7 titles that have been produced over the past year by the Turin-based feature film and TV series development laboratory.

The Guest Director of this year’s edition is Carlo Verdone, who will present five films close to his heart, amongst which Divorce Italian Style by Pietro Germi and Being There by Hal Ashby. Last but not least, we’ll see tribute paid to Teona Strugar Mitevska (God Exists, Her Name is Petrunya [+lire aussi :

Classic horror, 1919-1969” consisting of 35 titles. And it is the great icon of this very genre, British actress Barbara Steele, who will be the recipient of this year’s Turin Grand Prize.
