The Reykjavík Film Festival (RIFF) has released the line-up for the first 40 films of this year’s event.

RIFF is but four weeks away now, and organisers say this year’s films will fall under three categories: “Documentaries, [films] from the competition-category Open Seas, where films that have gotten great attention and focus in film festivals around the world, and finally from the category A Different Tomorrow, films that are aimed to make our world a better place.”

The list of films revealed so far shows “a great collection of films including documentaries about late Hollywood royalties, a documentary about the process of creating a new constitution for Zimbabwe and a documentary about career gourmets, or foodies, that travel between the world’s best restaurants.”

This includes Matthew Heineman’s Cartel Land, a documentary about the Mexican drug cartels and the fight against them; Pervert Park, about the Florida Justice Transitions trailer park for sex offenders and their struggle to reintegrate into society; Drone, a documentary about the people living in regions where drone attacks have become commonplace, and much more.

A full list of the first 40 films to be shown at this year’s RIFF can be found here.
