Imagination. It's the chief currency of the cinema, inspiring filmmakers around the world to share their stories, committing their voice and their vision to film.

We're blessed with an incredibly rich and diverse array of voices, both seasoned and newly emerging, at this year's Festival: fully 196 stories, sprung from a vast array of cultures and communities in 69 different countries around the world, each with it's own unique vision, perspective and distinctive take on the human condition.
