[re]Focused is the theme of the festival, celebrating a storytelling renaissance by moviemakers who suffered production obstacles posed by the global pandemic. Artists who persevered are emerging with new focus. People and groups who were on the margins or left out of narratives are entering the picture with a sharpness that reveals the details of life at a higher resolution.
