2024 Mifa Pitches: A Hotbed of Creativity


Daring, surreal or disturbing,
Intimate, critical or legendary,
Dark, radiant or delicate,
Tender, cheeky or wacky...

... A few adjectives that characterise this ambitious 2024 selection, which invites you to take a deep dive into both sensitive and surprising universes and narratives that examine our world and light up our imaginations.
