The Norient Musikfilm Festival is back. After a year off, the 9th edition will be taking place between January 10 and 13, 2019, in Switzerland (Bern, St. Gallen, Lausanne). We will be screening thirteen music films dealing with the current topics of migration, futurism, dance, tradition, cultural diplomacy, and war. The live acts and DJanes include Goodiepal & Pals, Dim Grimm (Dimlite), Kries, Clara!, and Bamz, who will offer a musical spectrum ranging from Croatian folk, political performance, and sound experiments, to UK funky house and reggaetó. This year’s festival will open with the documentary about English-Tamil world music 2.0 superstar “Matangi/Maya/M.I.A.,” which was nominated for the Sundance Film Festival.
