The endless months of working and intense film watching have resulted in one of the most eclectic and provocative film programs our event has ever dared to present.
In this last leg of the journey through this year’s film program we are delighted to let the world know which films make our Golden Lynx Competition, where two awards (Best Fiction and Best Documentary) will be given during our closing ceremony on the 25th of June.
The list includes what we believe are authentic pioneers of this new generation and certainly some of the most exciting new names on the scene.
Starting on the 9th of June all the information on these and all other selected films in our program will be made available on our website.
The award ceremony will not be the only highlight on the 25th of June, as FEST 2017 will condense all this energy with an “inflammatory” comedy, about the general confusion caused by blind austerity, in our official closing film: “The One Eyed King” by the Spanish filmmaker Marc Crehuet.
