Every year the festival opens and closes with special screenings at the flagship open-air theatre of the festival.

During the week, the festival also exhibits a number of films, often popular titles on the festival circuit as special screenings. The festival also works in collaboration with local NGOs, embassies and other entities to bring a selection of screenings that offer an insight into various social, political and economical issues followed by live discussions and Q&As with the audience.

The opening and closing films of the festival will be announced in April 2018. Other screenings will be announced in May 2018.
