Some festival highlights are…


Grande Hotel, directed by Lotte Stoops, Filmmaker in person

Opening Night, Thursday, November 10.

The Grande Hotel in the West African seaside town of Beira, Mozambique, was once the most opulent resort on the continent. Now, it is home to an estimated 3,000 squatters. Living in this outsize shell of former luxury, those on the margins of society create a self-enclosed community as the place they call home crumbles around them. As one voice in the film says, the history of the hotel is the history of the country itself.


Flames of God Pills , directed by Meshakai Wolf, Filmmaker in person

Closing Night – Sunday, November 13.

As a songwriter, Muzafer Bislim collaborates with the biggest names in Romani pop music. As a poet, he is gaining renown with an invitation to the International Biennial of Poets in Paris. Meanwhile, his masterpiece, a handwritten, 25,000-word, multi-dialect dictionary containing the oldest and most obscure words in the Romani language remains unknown. Seeing the trip to Paris as an opportunity to have the dictionary published, he gathers up the amassed pages and heads to France.
