Disclaimer from International Film Programmer Hannah Fisher:
We request that our audiences keep an open mind in viewing these films – as all are selected by the country of origin as the most representative film of the year. Some of the films may be unusual for Heartland Festival, but all films in this category will have been selected by various industry organizations, along with funding bodies and government agencies. Films in the “Foreign Language Best Picture Contender” sidebar contain mature themes and strong content.
