This special one-off hiqh-quality print publication celebrates cinema and the arts in its widest form. As part of IFFR’s 50th anniversary, we have invited 51 people who are in one way or the other connected to the festival, or who we want to connect to the festival, to share their thoughts, expectations and experiences on film, film festivals and the arts in general. These 51 people were paired with a worthy conversation partner: filmmakers, artists, journalists, visitors, activists and scholars.

The result: a rich collection of dialogues about the past and the future of the festival, about artistic freedom in countries where this is not self-evident, about analogue and digital cinema, and about what IFFR stands for and could stand for in the future. These frank conversations form a mosaic narrative about the magic of film, a prism through which the multitude of colours, stories and experiences are shared.

25 Encounters reads as a nostalgic and artistic exploration, it encompasses visionary dreams and curiosity. It’s a true collector’s item for the film and arts lover. The book comes with original illustrations.

Participants in the programme are a.o.: Júlio Bressane, Ayoka Chenzira, Sara Cwynar, Judit Elek, Sergei Loznitsa, Yuasa Masaaki, Vincent Monnikendam, Mary Stephen, Christine Vachon, and Apichatpong Weerasethakul.
