The International Competition – 2Narrate or Not section of the Ath- ens Avant Garde Film Festival always seeks to break down the barriers created by genre codes, categories set up by the film industry and stereotypical approaches by film critics and reviewers. Its mission is to discover and map out the new space invented by the art of current filmmaking. Its showcase includes features ranging from fiction to documentary by both veteran and younger directors. The section’s thirst for daring filmmaking is reflected in the detachment from anything mainstream and conventional, and the embracement of the fearless artistically crossover works that move forward the cinematic language. The section refuses imperatively to place a film in any one category and emphatically supports the type of free cinema open to continuous discovery, examining the strong correlation between visual representation and human subjectivity. This year’s program comprises nine feature-length films which will compete for the award of Best Feature Film.
