Feature films & documentaries at this year’s festival

It’s that time again! The 24th International Film Festival opens this Friday, and some of our favourite filmmakers are back with their new films. They include David Cronenberg, Ken Loach, Dardenne Brothers, Jean-Luc Godard, Richard Linklater, Wim Wenders, Michel Gondry, Kelly Reichardt, Andrey Zvyagintsev and this year’s Palme O’dor winner Nuri Bilge Ceylan. A lot of their previous movies are available at our libraries. Click their names to check them for pre- or post-festival viewings.

Also, if you’re a documentary fan you won’t be disappointed. As usual, a great number of documentaries, from arts, music, science, nature to politics, are featured in the festival. Some documentaries showcased last year are now on our shelves. Check them out.
