LONDON, June 7, 2011 -

Under the title Border-Crossing: Migration Across National and Mental
States, the 6th Psychoanalytic Film Festival (epff6) will present an
impressive programme of European film. The Festival, which is organised by
The Institute of Psychoanalysis and takes place from 3-6 November 2011, will
feature films from 10 different countries, many of which have never been
shown before in the UK. They will be discussed by the filmmakers themselves
with psychoanalysts and film scholars.

The programme includes such exciting events as an introduction to the
festival by three experts on migration (a social geographer, a psychoanalyst
and a film scholar), the screening of a silent movie with live accompaniment
by Harry the Piano and a reading of unpublished poems on migration by Ruth
. There will also be a lecture on exiled European filmmakers by film
historian Catherine Portuges, a conversation between prominent authors
Susannah Radstone and Eva Hoffman, and a plenary discussion chaired by Laura
and Andrea Sabbadini (the Festival's Director).

Andrea Sabbadini says: "The lectures and panels will focus on the
geographical and psychological border space where transitions occur and where
changes - subtle and slow, or more often traumatic - can take place."

The Festival, of which Bernardo Bertolucci is Honorary President, will
take place at BAFTA in London.
