Be2Can 2019

Be2Can presents selected top-notch films from the world’s three most prestigious festivals, ap- plying the principle of multi-platform distribution through cinema, TV, VOD and DVD. It strives to provide the audience with an insight into that which is new at the festivals and to show films that are not screened within standard distribu- tion. Be2Can is not confined to mere “presenta- tion”, with its aim being a critical selection and discussion about the actual films, as well as their dramaturgy, policy and awards. Be2Can is a film festival, critical platform and debate forum rolled into one.

Things that seem strange and incomprehensible, though, can sometimes be based... more...
