22. September 2011

The day has finally arrived! Following a year of intensive preparation, the festival is ready to open with Steven Soderbergh’s CONTAGION in the presence of its leading actor and this year’s Jury President Laurence Fishburne. Federal Councillor Didier Burkhalter is to be among the stream of guests.

The festival’s surprise opener is the US independent TAKE SHELTER, which will be screened simultaneously (21:15) at the charming Arthouse Le Paris cinema – it’s also the first competition film, don’t miss it!
