One of the LEFFEST’s main focuses was always the discovery and unveiling of cinema’s great abundance, contemplating several different cinematographies in terms of geography and content.

The goal of this section – the Official Competition (whose number of spectators has grown exponentially every year) – is to discover high quality films by young directors from all over the world, pairing them with other names whose works are already recognized. The Official Competition Section gathers some of the best films produced in 2018, selected by a Selection Committee comprised of experts from several countries.
