6 days of cinema, talks, music and party - that's the slogan of this year's International Film Festival Innsbruck in Austria which will be held from May 29 to June 3.

This year, the films from Tajikistan, Algeria, Canada, Brazil, Serbia, Japan and Italy will be presented at the festival which will offer the audience full-length and short film, features and documentaries.

The festival will pay the honor to Argentinian film maker and theorist, the outstanding figure of new Latin American cinema - Fernando Birri and offer the audience the retrospective of his films.

Many times already, we've mentioned International Film Festival Innsbruck and its director Helmut Groschup who's been a reliable partner of our festival. Groschup visits Tbilisi Film Festival every year and last year, our festival was a starting point of the joint programme, offered this year in Innsbruck - Georgia is a focus country of the Film Festival Innsbruck.

This special section will screen "Gogita's New Life" (2016) and "Blind Dates" (2013) by Levan Koguasvhili, "My Happy Family" (2017) by Nana Ekvtimishvili & Simon Groß (2017), Giorgi Shengelaia's "Pirosmani" (1969), Otar Ioseliani's "Pastorali" (1975), "Big Green Valley" (1967) by Merab Kokochashvili and "Zgvarze" (1993) by Dito Tsintsadze. Besides from that, Georgian films take part in Shorts section as well: "8 minutes" by Giorgi Gogichaisvhili and Davit Abramishvili, "Meeting at the Refrigerator" by Khatuna Khundadze and „Perfect Order" by Anna Sarukhanova and Katalina Bakradze.

To establish even closer communication and plan further projects, Film Festival Innsbruck will be attended by our program coordinator Guram Ghonghadze who will hold several important meetings.

The festival is held since 1999, focusing generally on the cinema production of Latin America, Africa, Central Asia and Eastern Europe.

The festival was founded in 1992 as "American Film Festival" and it was then renamed as "CineVision" in 1996. It was opened the first time under the name "International Film Festival Inssbruck" (IFFI) only in 1999.
