Today, thrillers and crime films are experiencing a renaissance in Europe, not only because of popular Scandinavian novels, films or series. Section "EuroCrime" offers insight into European criminalily throug the eyes of different film makers, in different film genres and from different corners of Europe.
Europe as a safe haven, as a place in which to live the 'European dream' – or simply lead the quiet life that is not an option in the place from which they come. The theme of the section prepared in partnership with the European Commission Representation in the Czech Republic is migration in a broader context, focusing not just on one specific wave of migrants but, rather, on migration in general – which takes many more forms than those currently portrayed in the media (the plight of Syrian refugees, for example): the films also reflect – amongst other things – migration within Europe itself. They show that migration is nothing new and they make it clear that people migrating from the Middle East may be doing so for the same reasons as people migrating within Europe. Four films (both feature films and documentaries) provide a close-up view of various aspects of migration in Europe.
This section is devoted to the European Parliament LUX Film Prize, an award that promotes European cinematography, values and social issues. We'll present the winner of 2015 and other finalists.
The power of imagination - surrealism, dream, fantasy and dream worlds, reality and fiction. The strength of the film image lies in the ability to create a specific mood and place on the edge between dream and reality, the unreal worlds, where everything is possible: magical realism and colorful and unique histories balancing between dream and reality. The MEDIA section is a celebration of imagination.
The special section of this year's edition focuses on coming of age social dramas. They are not understood, thrown on the edge, they rebel against the society and fight against prejudice and for their right to belong somewhere - the sensitive world of adolescence through the European filmmakers camera.
