“A director oversees every aspect of the movie making: the storytelling, the casting, directing the actors, the sound and editing- and through all this: the rhythm of the movie. This movie has all this.” (Source: FACT Festival 2020)

This year's festival also hosts the 1st FACT International Student Film Festival, featuring the latest creations from students from European higher education institutions.
