FILM#67 is now online. Read about the new series "Cities on Speed", four character-driven documentaries that address challenging issues of four cities, read about the voices that deal with urban problems and solutions, the motivation behind the series and interviews with the directors. Two of the films are selected for IDFA's Reflecting Images.
Focus is also on the other films competing at IDFA Amsterdam:
The world's floppy disk inventor, Japanese Dr Nakamats, is the subject of a tongue in cheek portrait ("The Invention of Dr. Nakamats"), selected for the mid-length programme together with a film which juxtaposes the destinies of two men of the same age, culture and religion, who have gone their different ways ("Accidental Terrorist").
Loss of innocence, looking for the light and living online are the threads of human stories running through three graduate films selected for IDFA ("Albert's Winter", "Northern Lights", "Book of Miri").
There's the awardwinning doc-comedy "The Red Chapel", about three Danes who tour to North Korea in disguise, running in Reflecting Images. And two coming of age films selected for Kids & Docs ("Let's Be Together" and "Invisible Girls").
