The Last Male on Earth, director Floor van der Meulen’s first feature documentary, will celebrate it’s world premiere in Next:Wave section. The film, produced by Een van de Jongens, tells the story of the last male specimen of a rare rhinoceros, who is surrounded by a human tragicomedy.

Robert Oey's The Good Terrorist (prod. Zeppers Film) will world premiere in the F:Act Award section. In the film, a former Islamic fundamentalist changes from a hateful and spiteful jihadist to a free citizen who renounces violence.
Screening in the CPH:Science section is Are You There? directed by Maartje Nevejan. The film is co-produced by Cerutti Film and Zeppers Film and will also world premiere in Copenhagen.
