Following the 11th edition, Murcia’s International Film Festival IBAFF has programmed feature films and many other short films directed by filmmakers from different places as Cambodia, Japan, Senegal, Italy, Germany, France, United Kingdom, Sweden, Czech Republic, Portugal, Tunisia, Brazil, Mexico, Thailand, China or Canada. Without forgetting the national media landscape, we aim to show small realities living inside the History in capital letters. Meaning so, directors who, through their works, teach us small acts performed by individuals who might never appear in official History, but who fight and try to change their surroundings even making mistakes in doing so.
Exploration of the poetic and exclusive cinematic masterpieces. Keeping always as a defining symbol the hypnotic image of the festival's logo - alluding to the origins of experimental cinema and Marcel Duchamp’s anemic Cinéma (1926) -, the IBAFF Festival Program looks this year for the exploration of the Poetic. The 2020 lineup includes movies that have been selected for their artistic quality and for being pieces of difficult access in conventional commercial circuits. Movies that otherwise would not be programmed in the city of Murcia. Thus, the Official Program for Long Feature Films includes 18 titles, among documentaries and fiction films, that transgress the academic film narratives and depict different topics. These are 18 movies acting as an invitation for the audience coming to La Filmoteca to reflect and enjoy.
14 films will be participating in the Official Program this year. Splitted in two joint sections, both are defined by the term AYN, translated as "eye", but meaning and encompassing a wider sense: a source, a person, a belief and an identity. Same as an eye, an organ of sight, - and also a whole universe of coincidences, mixing senses and rationality – The Official Section for Short Films guides us with poetic inspiration and creative imagination to what our hearts make us see.

Peter Greenaway (Newport, 1942), one of the purest and less conventional directors of contemporary cinema, will receive this year the IBAFF XI Honorary Award. The British filmmaker can be considered as a whole artist, making all the disciplines he loves - painting, photography, architecture, sculpture, music, history - harmoniously live together in his works.
