The first details of the 25th edition Turin Film Festival, led by Italian art house director Nanni Moretti, were disclosed in Berlin despite Moretti's absence due to a bout with the flu.

The festival will run November 23 to December 1 and continue to boost new talent, focus on cutting edge cinema and aim to foster 'meetings between new film makers and their would be audiences in an increasingly limited market,' Moretti's opening news statement read.

Sections will include: Torino 2, which will host the international competition for first, second and third works. Out of competition will feature world and Italian premiers. Italiana.doc and Italiana.corti (shorts) will focus on not yet released docs and short films up to 30 minutes in length.

Underscoring an affinity for edgy content, No standard is an innovative section featuring films and videos that don't follow standard format and schemes. The pictures will represent 'aesthetic, technical and linguistic innovation.'

Two as-yet-unnamed retrospectives will focus on filmmakers who have made a mark on modern cinema.

Moretti has added Emanuela Martini, director of 'Film TV' magazine to his list of collaborators. Martini will handle the competition and out of competition sections as well as act as festival coordinator.

Several staff members hailing from previous editions have been reconfirmed in their posts. Davide Oberto will continue to handle the short and doc sections; Marzia Milanesi continues as international press office; Bruna Ponti is Fest's general secretary while Luca Andreotti remains on as programming director.
