Promotional card of Cinequest Film & VR Festival

Cinequest was voted Best Film Festival by USA Today Readers. Cinequest programs 85-90% of its festival from paid submissions annually, the highest percentage of the world's most influential film festivals.

"I think the most important thing about Cinequest is it's definitely the first time I've ever come to a festival where my immediate reaction is, 'What do I have to do to be invited back?' and that's not normally my reaction. It's a perfect film festival in a glorious place." - Neil Gaiman, Maverick Spirit Award Winner

Cinequest Film & VR Festival (CQFF) in San Jose / Silicon Valley: Set in the home of the world’s most influential media technology companies (Apple, Cisco, Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, LinkedIn, Occulus etc.) CQFF showcases premier films, renowned and emerging artists, and breakthrough technology—empowering global connectivity between creators, innovators and audiences. Last year Cinequest hosted the World or U.S. Premiere of 132 films from 55 countries including a robust showcases of Mexican, Central and South American, Spanish, Indian, and Chinese Cinema. CQFF has led the world in its showcase and implementation of the technologies that have revolutionized film making, exhibition and distribution. CQFF’s blend of the artist and innovator gains focus through its Maverick Awards. Its Maverick Spirit Awards recognizes artists (Harrison Ford, Nicolas Cage, Elle Fanning, J.J. Abrams, Tatiana Maslany, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Bill Nighy, Ben Kingsley, Rosario Dawson, Spike Lee, James Franco, Neil Gaiman, and Sir Ian McKellen are among the guest recipients). Its Maverick Innovator Award recognizes technologists (including Martin Cooper, father of the cell phone, and Steve Wozniak, Co-founder of Apple Inc.). A Maverick stands apart from the crowd willing to create and innovate from a place of personal yet global vision.

Cinequest connects artists, innovators, media, and audiences—as people converge to experience a potent mix of immersive stories from around the globe and breakthrough technologies. Yet, Cinequest’s stellar reputation not only hinges on its knack for creating a powerful line-up, but also for securing distribution for many of its honored filmmakers. Netflix, IFC Films, Amazon, MSNBC Films, Oscilloscope, Sony Pictures, Magnolia Pictures, Kino-Lorber, eOne, Lionsgate, PBS, and HBO are just a few of the many that have signed deals with some of Cinequest's success stories.

Also, as an Academy-qualifying festival for the short film categories, Cinequest is proud to honor the winners of its Best Short Narrative and Best Short Animation prizes with a shot at every filmmaker's dream...Oscar gold.

"This festival is one that sets the trends and is actually ahead of the trends. Other festivals are copying Cinequest; I see it all the time."-- Chris Gore (Ultimate Film Festival Survival Guide)

Exhibiting unique social and artistic visions from around the globe, Cinequest’s dynamic festival engages audiences in thought-provoking dialogue, giving film artists and film lovers alike an opportunity to connect. Furthermore, Cinequest provides cutting edge technology and movie-making forums to empower professionals and students.

International Filmfest of entertaining, fantastic and arthouse free genre cinema.

We are a young team of enthusiastic film fans, long familiar with the scene. The festival director, David Ghane, an avid movie collector, has been visiting 7 to 13 film festivals a year since 2004, sometimes volunteering there, and has himself appeared in horror movies.

​We offer films a platform that have it difficult in Germany due to their particular nature or scope. Many festivals are drifting more and more into the Arthouse or Drama track. People who are looking for entertaining, smaller, more special Independent films or even big budget productions from far away, will find this at the Obscura Filmfest.

It started as a festival for offbeat, trashy, raunchy Underground Grindhouse cinema and developed into a Genre filmfest that now also includes films with a high production value. At every Obscura Filmfest we present dozens of films that represent the different facets of fantastic and entertaining cinema. From the small and mean horror films to asian battle epics, there is something for everyone, just no boredom.

Highlights of past festival editions include the german premieres of the argentinian Fantasy Sci Fi Cyberpunk Actionfilm "Daemonium", the Backwoods films "What the Waters Left Behind", "Drifter" and "Escape from Cannibal Farm" as well as the international premiere of another Genre Hybrid "Chicago Rot", which is also a great mashup of Fantasy, Sci Fi, Cyberpunk, Gore and Crime.
Another Highlight was the crazy japanese Splatterfest "Kodoku - Meatball Machine" which had an extensive festival history including the biggest festivals of its kind. Hanover had the honour to present the german premiere of "Trauma", an ultra violent Exploitationfilm from Chile. Also in Hanover, the korean 16 Million Euro Battle epic "The Great Battle".

This project aims to respond in a creative way to a systemic crisis that prevented artists from working. However, through the digital world these artists will have the possibility to express themselves, to be economically compensated for their work, to conquer new audiences, to contribute to the well-being of all and, thus, to raise their magic and enhance a transdisciplinary culture. Dreaming and achieving is an objective.
This project of interconnection of circus and street arts with cinema and virtual culture will be an urgent response of European solidarity and maintenance of the artistic sector in general, in order to enable content absent in this phase of social emergency.

Madrid FCM-PNR Film Festival opens in Festhome!

Logo of Festhome
Published: 08 May 2020


 
 


For the first time, the Festival De Cine De Madrid - PNR opens its call for entries in Festhome.

It’s a true pleasure for the Festhome team to welcome the Festival de cine de Madrid in our platform for the first time, festival run by the Plataforma de nuevos realizadores.

You may submit your film entries here.


The COVID-19 crisis will leave a mark on the festival's 29th edition, like in all other festivals. The Festival De Cine De Madrid - PNR will take place in October, 2020, from 6th through 11th.


ABOUT THE FESTIVAL:

The Festival De Cine De Madrid - PNR is already an event with its own identity in the city of Madrid. It is one of the oldest cinema related events in the city, and since its first edition in 1991 it has become established as an essential showcase for emerging productions to which it gives room and promotion, therefore gathering the best selection out of the diverse national film production that is not theatrically released in our country.

Focusing on films from new filmmakers, it is a meeting point in a permanent search for new narratives and creators in need of a new space from which they can be heard. Its own differentiated identity makes its audience grow stronger year after year and it is also renewed with new generations of viewers and authors, many of which will be in years to come the ones showing their films to the audience and who will be attracted by the latter, as has happened in all previous editions. Ultimately, it is one of the annual mandatory events for the film-going public in Madrid, and it has a relevant stature in the national festival circuit, which is one of the reasons why it is included in the pre-selection for the Best Short Film nomination for the Goya Awards organized by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Science of Spain.


Video summary of the 28th Festival de cine de Madrid on Vimeo. Festival de cine de Madrid FCM-PNR on Vimeo.

In its last edition, the festival screened in excess of 200 films in 9 different theatres, and it also organized meetings with filmmakers and young programmers, national and international homages… It is an essential event for all filmmakers.

Housed at the Edgemar Center for the Arts, nestled in the Frank Gehry designed complex on bustling Main Street in the beach town of Santa Monica, California, the Cinema at the Edge Independent Film Festival presents films of all genres that feature a distinct vision, a unique voice or a challenge to what is expected and accepted in the medium. Cinema at the edge gives new and recognized films and filmmakers the chance to ignite audience buzz, gain acclaimed exposure, and provide global distribution opportunities.

The Edgemar Center for the Arts is well known on the West Side of Los Angeles as a venue where up and coming talent share quality work, and Artistic Director Michelle Danner is thrilled to now invite the global independent film community to experience this vibrant beachside collective at the 3rd Annual Cinema at the Edge Independent Film Festival. Cinema at the Edge programs films with a unique voice and a clear vision, that blend genres or break conventions of the medium, with an added focus on life in the beachfront communities of Santa Monica and Venice and the talented group of independent filmmakers who make LA's West Side their home. The 2013 and 2014 festivals featured audience favorites from Sundance, SXSW and other major festivals, while maintaining a focus on world or regional premieres, challenging films that deserve a second look and showcasing local artists.

Previous iterations of the festival have welcomed Brett Ratner as an Honorary Chair, as well as a celebrity jury that included film veterans such as Susan Sarandon and John Singleton. The 1st and 2nd Annual Cinema at the Edge Independent Film Festival took place over four days in the spring of 2013, and was the natural expansion of these prior events. Narrative features, documentaries and programs of short films screened for packed theaters at the Edgemar Center, and festival-goers also enjoyed access to opening and closing night parties, an awards ceremony, a filmmaker bar crawl and and a series of panels focused on the various stages of the filmmaking process. Our panels were made up of prolific LA-based producers, development executives, entertainment attorneys and distribution professionals, joined by filmmakers screening their work at the festival. Awards were given out by the jury in the narrative, documentary and short film categories. Each screening at the festival is followed by a Q&A, even if it has to take place over Skype from countries away.
