there in 2014. Festival director Bero Beyer is very pleased with the selection: “From experimental millennial autofiction to Spanish class consciousness, from hard-boiled Korean crime to life in Hindu-nationalist Tamil Nadu, from the jungles of Venezuela to the streets of Greece – all films in the Tiger Competition radiate a strong sense of personal urgency and cinematic relevance, fuelled by boundary-pushing directorial visions.” An important edition for Beyer, as this is the year he will pass the torch to Croatian-born Vanja Kaludjercic. She will start as her job as the festival’s artistic voice next year, celebrating the 50th edition.

The Tiger jury for the 2020 edition is formed by Dutch-Palestinian filmmaker Hany Abu-Assad, artistic director of Visions du Réel Emilie Bujès, South Korean-born American filmmaker Kogonada, Dutch filmmaker Sacha Polak, whose film Dirty God [+lire aussi :

screened at IFFR in 2007 and 2011 respectively. An audience jury will award the winner with the VPRO Big Screen Award, which guarantees local theatrical release and airtime on Dutch public television. The Bright Future Competition this year is made up of 15 titles, offering a refreshing approach to the trade, with an equal balance between male and female directors. The award grants one of the feature-length debuts a financial prize of €10,000.
