We have selected ten highly rated foreign-language films which would normally only be screened for specialist audiences, this year with a more European bias, with some excursions to the Near and Far East and the Antipodes.
We have made a broad-based selection of films and have not shied away from the problems that have beset us in the twentieth century. We have touched on a number of areas of conflict and intrigue that will be unknown to you.
There are also many lighter moments to be enjoyed throughout the more than 17 hours of screen time. All films have English subtitles and are introduced by a SHIFF committee member. Timings are approximate. We wish you as much joy in viewing our films as we have had in selecting them.
