DREAM LAB: The new trailer for the ITFS 2018 is online!


The trailer is a homage to the creativity factory and the endless mindscape of the ITFS - with quite a lot of magic and a firework of the absurdities. It is inspired by Greek mythology and takes us to the "dream laboratory" of the crazy professor Morpheus. Watch now!
