Spotlight Mark Jenkin | Architecture and Society | YAAAS! Competition & school screenings
In three months the CROSSING EUROPE Film Festival in Linz will kick off its 17th edition. From April 21 to 26 2020, CROSSING EUROPE dedicates itself for six days (plus the “bonus day” on April 27) entirely to European film and invites over 150 filmmakers from all over Europe to come to Linz. As a European cultural event, the festival intends to give a differentiated insight into the here and now in Europe through around 150 fiction and documentary films, and celebrate film culture over the course of the week.
Today we are proud to announce further programmatic highlights of the 17th edition: This year’s Spotlight will be dedicated to the British director Mark Jenkin, the program section Architecture and Society will deal with the topic “Mobility Defines Space”, and our YAAAS! Young Programmers have already made their selection for the competition section YAAAS! Competition – three of the six feature films will additionally be shown in special school screenings.
