Young audiences will delve into current and relatable topics through a slate of films, and participate in a variety of film-related events, at the sixth annual TIFF Next Wave Film Festival, running from February 17 to 19, 2017.
The 25th Stockholm International Film Festival set many records including female award winners, with French director Céline Sciamma’s Girlhood winning the top prize. The film is a tale of class identity and belonging. It fills a gap among the stories that are traditionally told about Paris. The award for Best First Film went to July Jung for A Girl at my Door. Ninja Thyberg won the 1 Km Film scholarship with her short film Hot Chicks. The price enables the director to make a new short film which will be screened during the 2015 Film Festival.
