A Burst of Song - Lia Beltrami & Alberto Beltrami - Q&A - T.I.F.A. - Year I
Winner of "Silver Anhuma" Award Best Sound Design Documentary. A Burst of Song In the slums of Calcutta, three girls manage to rescue themselves by pursuing their dreams. “When the heart is hard and parched up, come upon me with a shower of mercy. When grace is lost from life, come with a burst of song. Come to me, my lord of silence, with thy peace and rest.” (R. Tagore) This is Kolkata: it vibrates on Tagore's verses, it walks Gandhi's steps, it breathes the love of Mother Teresa. It’s right here where Bharati, Rahima and Sumita were born: under a bridge, along the train station, in the red light zone. Their stories intertwine in the home of the Sisters of Providence, where dreams come true. Rahima became a flight stewardess. Sumita left her abusive husband. Unfortunately Bharati left us before the editing of the film was finished, leaving behind a son. Lia Beltrami Lia Beltrami has received the Golden Lion for Peace 2017 in Venice.

As Brabas Do Funk - Women in the Brazilian Funk Scene - Sarah F.Willmeroth & Dika -Q&A-T.I.F.AYearII
Winner of "Silver Anhuma" Award As Brabas Do Funk - Women in the Brazilian Funk Scene "As Brabas do Funk" is the first documentary film by German photographer and filmmaker Sarah Willmeroth. It takes viewers on a 50-minute journey into the music scene and the favelas of Rio de Janeiro. Brazilian funk originated in Rio's favelas in the 70s and has always been tainted with many prejudices; the music and its artists are accused of glorifying drugs and violence as well as sexism. The film sheds light on the female perspective of this male-dominated music scene. It is about the everyday life of five female protagonists who work as DJanes, dancers, singers and agents. They talk about their experiences and the constant pressure to prove themselves. The women debunk myths about favela culture and the infamous "baile funk" parties and send a strong message to all women. So in the end, this film is not just a film about an underrated and often misunderstood music genre, but a film about a cultural movement – feminist, encouraging and empowering. Director Biography - Sarah Franziska Willmeroth Sarah Willmeroth is a german photographer and filmmaker based between Paris and Munich.
