Mountains by Monica Sorelle

debut competition | 2023 | United States | 95’


Sorelle’s tender debut looks at a Haitian immigrant family on the verge of losing touch with one another, and Miami’s Little Haiti, the place they call home. Gentrification is a problem all too familiar to cities like Miami and Amsterdam. While many people are in desperate need of a sense of belonging, housing shortages soar. Dreaming becomes the only option. 


>> The screening on May 11 includes an introduction by DARKMATTER (15’)

Sprouts Film Festival 2024 | May 7-12

In times of a glitching world, with weather extremes and inhumane conflicts intensifying, it can be tempting to avert your gaze. Instead, Sprouts wants to make the cinema a site for peaceful protest by showing newly released ecocinema and socially critical debut films. All selected features and shorts are fiction, because it is our belief that through the power of imagination we can alter our behaviour for the better and rethink our relationship with the more-than-human world. We are here to make you wonder, to inform, to spark resistance and to nurture fresh talent.


SproutsFF24, our third edition, will be bigger than ever. Our festival locations this year are Studio/K, MACA, Kriterion and Zone2Source. Want to learn more about our SproutsFF24 programme, which also includes a free Eco Expo, a queer club night and a live ecological AV-show? Go to or follow us on Instagram @sproutsfilmfestival and Letterboxd @sproutsff.


* All features are in competition for the Audience Award. Please do not forget to cast your vote on the way out!
