(The competition mentioned in this interview is now closed and the winner has been notified.)


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.

Kate Reidy, co-Director of the festival, explains the festival and some of the special features that will take place this year for the festival's 20th edition.

We also take a look at the Black Movie for Kids programme and some of the exhibitions.
