The best films of the moment are brought together each year in this section which, like other festivals considered by the IFFPA as "competitive non-specialized", shows a selection of competing films from among recent cinematographic works not to have competed in other Festivals.
18 films not yet released and selected from among the best in the world will compete for the Golden Shell.
This means that the public and members of the media who come to the Festival can enjoy the latest work by some of the most appreciated film-makers on top of new additions to the fascinating world of cinema. 10 days when great films are the reason for getting together and having a good time.
