Romero (Diary of the Dead) and cult Spanish director Jess Franco for a special screening of 3 of his movies produced by Edwin C. Dietrich.

The International competition brings together established values (George A. Romero’s Diary of the Dead) and discoveries (Isidro Ortiz with Eskalofrio). British director, Paul Andrew Williams will also be in Neuchâtel with his new movie The Cottage. Among the events of the 2008 selection, will be presented: Takashi Miike’s last movie, Sukiaki Western Django, and the sketches movie Tokyo! by Bong Joon-ho, Leo Carax and Michel Gondry. The other main competition, entitled New Cinema From Asia will offer 9 movies coming from 6 countries and exploring the diversity of Asian film production.

Besides the Open Air organised for the second time and exclusively screening unreleased films the NIFFF offers several special screenings sessions. Among them, Spain: Land of fright, which notably presents [REC] as a preview screening and in the exclusive presence of his director Jaume Balagueró. The film will compete for the Méliès d'argent (Silver Méliès) for best European feature film, alongside with Astropia (Gunnar B.

For the third consecutive year, the NIFFF organises the Imaging the Future Symposium (, featuring group of meetings devoted to the development of digital images, with guest of honour Syd Mead. The animago prize will be presented on the 2nd of July as an extension of the symposium. Created in Germany in 1999, animago represents without any doubts the most important award dedicated to digital creation in Europe.
