Fifteen selected films worldwide will be evaluated by a jury of seven prominent figures in the global film industry and contend for prizes of 10 categories in the festival’s “Tiantan Award.”

These 15 movies include China’s sci-fi blockbuster “The Wandering Earth,” “Sunset” (Hungary and France), “The Waiter” (Greece), “The Keeper” (Germany and Britain), “The Unorthodox” (Israel), and “Ben Is Back” (the United States), and “A Fortunate Man” (Denmark).
