FROM FRIDAY, 2nd of NOVEMBER TILL SATURDAY, 10th of NOVEMBER, don’t miss the Geneva International Film Festival – a treat for independent film lovers.
The Geneva International Film Festival (GIFF) has been running since 1995 and has established a solid reputation on the international film festival scene with links to the Festival del film Locarno and the Festival de Cannes.
The GIFF prides itself in being more than a cinema festival, exploring the interface between cinema, television and digital art.
If you’re an art house cinema fan, you can take your pick from a variety of interesting films by international film directors including Wim Wenders, Jerzy Skolimowski, Xavier Beauvois and Gus van Sant just to name a view.
The For Your Eyes Only section features the organisers’ favourites and the Bande Original is dedicated to exploring the relationship between cinema and music.
If you are more adventurous, you may want to check out some of their hybrid events, such as the Nuits Blanches; a series of films that link to a musical event. You may want to try a DJ set by French Touch figurehead Chloe spinning electronic music to Hitchcock’s Blackmail.
The Geneva Digital Market, the festival’s professional programme, is dedicated to new digital trends. It includes conferences and debates, as well as a programme of meetings and exchanges between European creators and investors, the New Digital Talents.
