there in 2014. Festival director Bero Beyer is very pleased with the selection: “From experimental millennial autofiction to Spanish class consciousness, from hard-boiled Korean crime to life in Hindu-nationalist Tamil Nadu, from the jungles of Venezuela to the streets of Greece – all films in the Tiger Competition radiate a strong sense of personal urgency and cinematic relevance, fuelled by boundary-pushing directorial visions.” An important edition for Beyer, as this is the year he will pass the torch to Croatian-born Vanja Kaludjercic. She will start as her job as the festival’s artistic voice next year, celebrating the 50th edition.
