Spotlight on Swiss fantasy at the NIFFF !



Embracing our role as a springboard for a new generation of Swiss filmmakers, the Neuchâtel International Fantastic Film Festival (6-14 July) unveils the works selected in the non-competitive AMAZING SWITZERLAND section, created to highlight our national productions. The Swiss short films will compete for the CHF 10,000 award granted by SSA/Suissimage.
This year, LIONEL BAIER, a great figure of Swiss cinema, will attend and open up his universe through a very bloody carte blanche. The festival will host the world premiere of Swiss web series LE 5E CAVALIER, winner of the FANTASTIC WEB CONTEST II organised in collaboration with the RTS.
Designed as an overview of the best fantasy (or related genres) films produced in the country, AMAZING SWITZERLAND will be comprised of 5 exciting titles, including 1 world premiere (CURRY WESTERN from Kamal Musale), and 1 Swiss premiere (KATRINA’S DREAM from the Bischofberger brothers) !
