Flavours of the World program revealed


A week away from the official launch of the event, we are delighted to let you know our Flavours of the World program for 2016.

Once again, after a careful analysis, we've come up with a short list of regions that seem to be showing great signs of the emergence of a particularly talented up-and-coming generation of filmmakers.


Portugal, the Republic of Ireland and Iceland have all dominated news worldwide due to the financial crisis and the terrible impact it has had on its younger population. It is often said times of hardship go hand in hand with times of great artistic expression. This is certainly true in these three cases. Regardless of the role played by austerity, all three countries have recently been scoring points in the international film festival scene, and it is time to look beyond and discover some of the key names that will be grabbing the headlines.
