Event: BLACKMOVIE FESTIVAL - closing ceremony
- 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.
- Alhambra, 10 Rue de la Rôtisserie, Geneva, 1204, Switzerland
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. Most of those film directors, now winning kudos and prizes at the world's most prestigious film festivals (Cannes, Berlin, Venise, Busan, Toronto, Rotterdam…), were there in person when their films were being screened at Black Movie. 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.
