“This edition of IFFR Pro proved that bringing together talent and ideas, and those who can support them, remains a very relevant thing to do. Cinema and the stories we aim to bring to fruition are relevant and have meaning. I am very proud of this year’s edition and look forward to tweaking our endeavours in the future to both create and reflect change,” Head of IFFR Pro Marit van den Elshout said.
