TRIESTE: Nine titles wil vie in the international competition of the 29th Trieste Film Festival set to take place from 19 to 28 January 2018.
The festival also organises an international competition for documentaries and short films, an overview of the best animated films from CEE, a retrospective of the second half of the 1900s from two sides: the East and the West, Italian screenings, a showcase of works that tread the line between cinema and contemporary art, a showcase of films pitched at the When East Meets West meetings, as well as Eastweek Midpoint 1 workshop.
