New Cinema Competition Features

A brand new remodelled New Cinema Competition, where all selected filmmakers share the Berwick New Cinema Award. For easy viewing the selection is presented in two screenings, one for short and medium length works, and the second for features.

Each film encompasses BFMAF’s view of some of the most distinctive and unexpected works of new cinema being made around the world today, bringing original perspectives and new forms into being. These are vital works, imbued with a sense of liveness and agency in their resolute visions—they will surprise, entertain and provoke, opening up further questions and considerations.
