PFF 2022
The 15th anniversary edition of Perspectives Film Festival: Breakthroughs in Cinema presents: It’s Time...

Tick... Tock. What is film without time? A famous director once referred to film as “sculpting in time”. Time is to a filmmaker what paint is to a painter—a material to shape and express meaning. Whether it is the time travel of science-fiction films, or the nostalgia of the past and memory, time pervades cinema. This year, we explore cinematic notions of time: transience of shuttering cinemas, voyages into the past, ills of the present, and anxieties for the future. PFF 2022 is anchored in innovative explorations of time through form and content, a testament to the richness of film’s temporality.
