The members of the National Competition jury are Ukrainian director (and award winner at the tenth OIFF) Nariman Aliev, Catalan director Carla Simón, General Delegate of the Venice International Film Critics’ Week Giona Nazzaro and head of IFFR Pro Marit van den Elshout.

Furthermore, a new, non-competitive programme is being introduced at the 11th OIFF, the Visions section, which presents films with a distinctive visual narrative and an original cinematic approach. As the festival’s programme director, Anthelme Vidaud, noted: “Visions gathers films that entail a strong auteur personality, and which offer a new vision of the world. The originality and the audacity of their visual decisions come together with a bold comprehension of the world and the society we live in. It is composed of films that refuse to follow the rules of academism and classicism – they take us to other places, and they open doors and minds."

The programme includes nine titles: Entwined [+leggi anche:

In addition, the National Oleksandr Dovzhenko Film Centre will host its fifth national retrospective, “Free in Odesa: Independent Cinema of the 1990s”. It will showcase five prominent films, mostly debuts, by independent directors from Odesa who, amongst the turbulence and existential uncertainty of the early 1990s, were creating post-perestroika cinema. The screenings will take place at Stage 6@ of the Dovzhenko Centre in Kyiv between 26 September and 7 October. Another retrospective, “Women Pioneers of Cinema”, organised by OIFF, will include six films that were directed by, or pay tribute to, female filmmakers, including the first woman director, Alice Guy.
