The goal for Fiction & Documentary is to find smart and powerful films that approach the world around us with the means of cinema and engage with our surroundings in an unusual way. The movies should take a critical look and a political position, challenge us form and content-wise and can thereby transgress boundaries of category and genre. We want to be surprised or even irritated, transfixed by images or held by suspense, fascinated by radicalism or be touched by emotional depth. Be it a fresh or established perspective, the selection from the international competition for short fiction films and documentaries feeds on the vibrant and experimental mixture, not the artificial and self-referential hierarchy.
