Different Angle Film Competition
The aim of this film competition is to encourage independent filmmakers to present their vision of a current theme in an interesting, creative way from a different angle than we are used to. The 10 best films will be nominated and screened during the festival. A professional jury will choose the winner of the Different Angle Film Award and announce it during the festival from 8-17 October 2010.

The competition is divided in a national and international selection. The awards will be given during the festival from 8-17 October 2010.
