The 36th edition of the Freeborg International Film Festival (FIFF) opened on Friday evening, marking a return to normalcy. Culture Minister Alain Borset recalled FIFF’s essential role in “opening many windows to the world”.
The opening ceremony took place in a full room again as before the health crisis. Organizers, led by art director Thierry Jabin, are proud of the “ambitious” 2022 edition, two years after it was turned upside down by Covit-19. The festival runs until Sunday, March 27th.
The 127 films, selected from 58 countries across all continents, present to the public a map of the world state, in almost all verses in French and German. The project uses twelve rooms instead of six, for public convenience, in conjunction with the renovation of five spaces, instead of one.

“Especially those who are fighting in the same wars against discrimination or the future of the planet, find it difficult to talk to each other without shouting at each other. We need to rediscover the joy of debate and debate,” the art director said.
“Bringing it together is one of FIFF’s missions, especially when it comes to adding a wider audience, by strengthening collaborations or extending our hands to bilingualism,” explained Matthew Fleury, FIFF Association President. “This is one of the purposes of this 36th edition.”
“Despite financial pressure, FIFF has found the impetus for growth in the city of Friborg, completing its bilingualism or expanding in Canton, especially in the grass,” said another Jurassic living in Friborg.
State Councilor Sylvie Bonvin-Sansonnens, who is in charge of training and culture, was delighted at the number of young people invited to FIFF theaters to thank the Planet Cinema School for the show. This year 11,000 participants aged 4 to 25 have been announced.
