A Cinema that is pointing towards the outside and not behind it.
Film Frontier understood in its symbolic value as well as geographically in its sense of the word.
Territorial frontiers, culture, and language but also of the soul; meeting point between past, present and future.
Frontier not as a limit, but as a window on the universe that surround different universes.
Intercultural Film looking characters jointing between peoples rather than those dividers.
And this is Film Frontier…
