Black Movie is back for 2020

Mid Morning Mix // General // Jan. 15, 2020

Black Movie International Independent Film Festival takes place this 17-26 January 2020 in Geneva. 

Committed to the defense of Asian, African, Middle Eastern and South American films, the Black Movie Festival has offered film-lovers in Geneva and French-speaking Switzerland an opportunity to discover the films of Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Jia Zhangke, Carlos Reygadas, Wang Bing, Hong Sang-soo, Takashi Miike, Tsai Ming-liang and João Pedro Rodrigues – for the first time.

Sorted into thematic sections (society, politics, new urban culture, gender...), the films screened during this annual 10-day festival witness to the liveliness of an international cinematography completely ignored by commercial distribution circuits and barely visible in Switzerland. Here, audiences find all shapes and sizes of film: fiction, documentaries, experimental, animated, feature length and short films.
