America, Iceland, and Russia are already confirmed competitors at Titanic

From A war between brothers in Arkansas, a crime mystery in Iceland, or the story of a Russian professor addicted to heroin may just be the most daring film of the 15th Titanic International Film Festival starting on the 3rd of April.

Jeff Nichols and Aslan Galazov, two directors debuting with their first feature, as well as Baltasar Kormákur, director of 101 Reykjavik, are already competing for the 10 000 Euro prize and the Breaking Waves Award of the international film festival of our capital.

From It is already a fact that the international jury will not have an easy job in selecting the best film. The shocking tale of Shotgun Stories, portraying the futility of a vendetta with the unavoidable in Greek tragedy, has won over the most sharp-tongued critics from the Chicago Sun Times to Variety.

From Jar City is based on the popular crime story by Arnaldur Indriadson, which is already a well-known book in Hungary. Finally, The Swallows Have Arrived is one of those rare Russian dramas that portray Russian reality outside of Moscow.

As festival guests, the Russian and the American director will cheer for their films side by side during the competition, in which eight films are up against each other for the Grand Jury Award.
