This year’s festival features the best crop of films ever, especially many award-winners from the ECU, The European Independent Film Festival, held in Paris and commonly referred to as “Europe’s Sundance.” To get into the ECU films had to have won awards in other festivals in Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East, so all ECU films are already double winners and not part of official NIFF competition. The films—mostly shorts and animations—come from the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Denmark, Singapore, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, and more. Also, many other German entries not from the ECU came in, and when NIFF judges saw their high quality they decided they not only had to be seen, but also had to be official NIFF selections eligible to compete for festival awards. Thursday and Friday nights will feature these German films starting at 7:00 p.m. (There will be no 9:00 p.m. sessions these two nights.)
Come see the potential star actors, directors, cinematographers, film writers, and editors of the future. Come support Independent Film.
