TFF - vol.2


The main competitive section of the festival is reserved to directors making their first, second or third film and this year presents sixteen newly produced films that have not yet been presented in Italy. As always, the competition concentrates on “young” cinema and focuses primarily on searching out and discovering innovative talents that express the best contemporary trends of international independent cinema. Over the years, the festival has awarded prizes to the debut works of filmmakers like Tsai Ming-liang, David Gordon Green, Chen Kaige and Lisandro Alonso, Pietro Marcello and Debra Granik. These works belong to the cinema “of the future” and represent a variety of genres, languages and trends. Thus, documentaries will not only participate in the competition that is reserved specifically to Italian documentaries but also in the main competition.
In 2010, Winter’s Bone by Debra Granik (USA) was awarded the Best Film prize while Les signes vitaux by Sophie Deraspe (Canada) and Las marimbas del infierno by Julio Hernández Cordón (Guatemala) gained ex aequo the Jury Special Prize, Jennifer Lawrence in Winter’s Bone and Erika RIvas in Por tu culpa by Anahí Berneri (Argentina) ex æquo the Best Actress prize and Omid Jalili in The Infidel by Josh Appignanesi (UK) the best Actor prize.
