Unlike the previous year's festival, in addition to the Roma theme, which makes it special, FROM will also include films dealing with the topic of "Returnees" , and all socially vulnerable groups in the selection. In a society where a multitude of people went into a better future, too many are returning,expelled and disappointed. For this reason, this festival will be dedicated to the stories of "expelled".
This year, the film festival FROM, in addition to the competition program, will feature some of the works of the noted world directors in their revue, who dealt with these issues in their work.

Overall Rating
  • I wasn't able to attend, but according to the friends and colleagues that sent me all the best experiences about festival From - Returness, I'm hoping I'll get the chance to come in some of the next years and to be selected with new work!

    Thank you for selecting "Yasin", it was a really amazing thing for the small crew gathered around the film to get a chance to screen a documentary we made with our hearts.
