    MOTOVUN: Eighteen films have been selected for the main programme of the 20th Motovun IFF, set to take place from 25 to 29 July 2017.

    The festival will also screen a competition for short films (with 22 titles selected), a focus on Iceland (Icetria) and Degenerate Art 2.0, a programme dealing with the new tendencies in limiting the freedom of artistic expression.
