The second section “Rising Directors” features debut feature films including “Luzzu” by Alex Camilleri – the first film from the Republic of Malta to be screened in the panorama.
The third section is for documentary films that deal with a wide range of contemporary topics such as “Magaluf Ghost Town” directed by Miguel Ángel Blanca.
The fourth section is the Krzysztof Kieślowski cinema which specializes in retrospectives to display the films of pioneering Polish director Krzysztof Kieślowski whose enchanting visual language dazzled the masses across his 30 year long career.
