For the first time in the office of artistic director: Niccolò Castelli is giving films in other languages ​​and stories about minorities more space at the 58th Solothurn Film Festival (18-25 January).

Topics such as war, feminism, struggle for human rights, democracy and the environment dominate this year’s edition. “The films want to play a role in society,” said Niccolò Castelli, the new artistic director of the Filmtage, at the program media conference last December. The directors want to “put their fingers in the wounds”.

In an interview with the Keystone-SDA news agency the day before the opening, the filmmaker (“Atlas”) explained this further. In his first year as co-director of the festival, he wants to bring in “a greater sensitivity to films in other languages ​​and from minorities”.
