In our intriguing Works in Progress section, we present new films currently in post-production. Selected scenes from each film, together with a short presentation, will give the participants an exclusive and unique preview of the upcoming lineup. The directors and/or producers will present their own films, each presentation lasting approximately 10 minutes.

This year’s Works in Progress takes place Thursday August 20th.
