Each year it presents incredibly diverse programmes – from the first film made in Somalia in 20 years, to Oscar-nominated shorts from Australia, the USA and Ireland, and short films smuggled out of China and Iran – as well as the hosting of celebrated film-makers from China, Russia, Italy, Spain, Germany, Holland and all over the UK.
