Either a black and white silent movie (The Antena / La antena from Argentina), or a story about the end of the adolescence (the swidish Falkenberg Farewell), a picture about the moral dilemmas (the serbian The Trap / Klopka), or an italian film with the famous choreographer Eduard Gabia, playing the main character (Cover Boy), a story about confused and acid parent-children relationship  (Children / Börn from Iceland), or the american A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, either the already awarded  (the spanish Azul oscuro casi negro and La sagrada familia from Chile), each film in the competition is the first or at least the second feature of it’s director.

This year, in the TIFF Official Competition, Romania is represented by the same film that represents it in the Cannes Official Competion – 4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days. The director Cristian Mungiu returns to the TIFF Competition, after his first feature, Occident, won the Transylvania Trophy  of the first TIFF Competition in 2002.
