THE MANDATE: ‘UNHEARD VOICES’

THE MANDATE: ‘UNHEARD VOICES’

Although hard numbers are impossible to determine, worldwide film production yields more than 7,000 feature films each year, many of which are showcased at nearly 5,000 annual film festivals. So, why start another festival? Because so many of those 7,000 films seem to fall through the cracks and vanish mere moments after premiering. Of course, many of them deserve to vanish due to a lack of quality, but the fact is there are so very many excellent works that are either undeservedly consigned to the trash heap of history or deserving of further exposure. We will screen 13 (in keeping with our name) fiction features from 13 different countries, all of which we will be entertaining, thoughtful, and high-quality examples of the seventh art—and all of which we are pretty sure you’ve never heard of. These are films—all from the last couple of years—that more than merit a second chance to entertain and enlighten audiences. When you see them, we are convinced you’ll agree.
