It is the origin of the INF: the Innsbruck Nature Film Festival (INFF), which is taking place this autumn for the 19th time. Out of hundreds of submitted films, 50 works make it onto the big screen. All competition films will be shown from 6-9 October 2020 in the spacious Metropol Kino at the foot of the Innsbruck Nordkette. Three films that have already received their nomination express just how wide-ranging the programme at the 19th INFF will be.
The Dutch documentary SHEEP HERO directed by Ton van Zantvoort accompanies the wandering shepherd Stjjn in his passionate struggle to preserve his traditional and dream job. A classic, so to speak. In addition, SPACE DOGS is the crazy one. Under the direction of Elsa Kremser and Levin Peter, a magical tale of Moscow street dogs is formed, from their ascent into space to life on the ground. Finally, the thriller: WATSON, a crime-fighting superhero of the high seas. Hollywood-awarded Lesley Chilcott paints a portrait of the Sea Shepherd founder Paul Watson, a man willing to put his own life and liberty at risk to protect the oceans and the marine life within.
