The IFFG attaches great importance to the visibility of the productions of young independent filmmakers and up-and-coming film talent. That is why the IFFG puts filmmakers, editors and actors from their own city and region in the spotlight every year. You get to know them during the Local Talent Program, hosted by Martin Koolhoven!
This edition we have again included three beautiful short films and a documentary in our Local Talent Program. The films have been selected on the basis of special achievements, social involvement and current themes. A fascinating and surprising program, including discussions with the makers.

In Wayana we walk in the footsteps of great-grand-uncle Claudius de Goeje. He was an explorer who mapped Suriname and made the first contacts with the Wayana, the indigenous people of Suriname.

The same laws and rules of the past still apply to them.
