In Debrecen, the opening film of the event will be Tove, directed by Zaida Bergroth, on Tuesday evening. The film is about the Finnish-Swedish artist Tove Jansson and her life in Helsinki after the war.

One of the highlights of the festival is the film The Blind Man Who Didn’t Want to See Titanic, which won the Audience Award at this year’s Venice Film Festival. The film presents the perspective of Jaakko, who is blind and paralyzed from the chest down. Jaakko decides to set out to find his love, Sirpa, and for this, he will need the help of five strangers.
