CLIT is a film festival that will debut in Portugal next October, turning audience members into treasure hunters in search of the venues where films will be screened. They get clues about the screening location through the festival's app.

The venue can be anywhere, except at a regular movie theatre, because CLIT is an acronym for Cinema em Locais Inusitados e Temporários (Cinema in Unusual and Temporary Venues).

We welcome submissions from all genres and lengths, privileging works on socially relevant issues (human rights, democracy, any of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, etc.) that make audiences think on how they can contribute in a positive way to a better world. As our director says: "If you want to change the world, do it with pleasure".

CLIT will have a meeting point for artists and audience members called "Ponto G" (G Spot), where groups of people can gather to talk and enjoy the local gastronomy of Setúbal, our host city (check https://visitsetubal.com/en).

ABOUT THE ORGANIZER:
Festroia is a non-profit organization based in Setúbal, Portugal. It was created in 1987 to promote film activities, allowing its founders to continue the work developed in 1985 and 1986, when they organized the first two editions of Festroia - International Film Festival. Until 1994, the Association held this festival in Tróia, migrating it in 1995 to Setúbal, where it stayed until its 30th and last edition, in 2014.
Over the years, it welcomed artists like Pedro Almodóvar, Christopher Lee, Jane Russell, Robert Mitchum, Kirk Douglas, Lauren Bacall, Krzysztof Kieslowski, Christopher Walken, Agnieszka Holland, Dome Karukoski, Dennis Hopper, Christiane Torloni, Michael York, Mickey Rooney, Maria de Medeiros, Alberto Sordi, Joaquim de Almeida, Assumpta Serna, Ingvar Sigurðsson or Ben Gazzara.
Festroia aimed to promote cinema not known in Portugal, in a choice dictated by the cultural diversity and the aesthetic quality of the movies, presenting four competitive sections and several exhibitions. In 2007, it was the first international film festival worldwide to compensate its carbon footprint.

Note: The image uploaded to Festhome is not the festival's logo. That will only be revealed at the event's presentation.

DESCRIPTION of the Festival
After four successful editions in constant growth, this edition, the 5th, becomes the most important since it is the one most linked to the island of Ibiza and its Heritage.
Ibicine is a festival born out of love for cinema and the island of Ibiza and that is committed to emerging Spanish talent, those who now make short films and who are the future of our cinema.
Ibicine is a festival organized within the activities with which it seeks to generate this meeting point for cinema on the island, programmed by IACI - Ibicine Cinematographic Association of Ibiza - and it is possible thanks to the constant support of island institutions such as the City Council of 'Eivissa, the Consell d'Eivissa and the Town Hall of Santa Eulària.
It is thanks to them and to companies that join in every year that this cultural meeting in Ibiza is now a must for every movie fan.
The Ibiza Ibicine Festival seeks to enhance the short film, rewarding by categories each of the technical and artistic aspects that have a place in a film production.
Ibiza is the perfect place to disconnect from routines and big cities, making it a perfect setting for this meeting to generate new projects, conferences, courses and ultimately create culture and film school.
In addition to this, it seeks to promote professional cinema on the island, so that a meeting point is generated with industry professionals to generate relationships within the sector and it does so through the Ibiza Film Market in which creators and buyers meet and doors are opened, contracts are closed, learning and industry are generated. Ibiza is the perfect place to disconnect from routines and big cities, making it a perfect setting for this meeting to generate new projects, conferences, courses and ultimately create culture and film school.
For all this, Ibicine receives the UNESCO award as a representative of the Movie Travel cinematographic tourism routes in 2018.
But that's not all, because Ibicine has proven to be supportive by allocating the proceeds of the proceeds to the Spanish Association Against Cancer and the Abandoned Dogs Foundation of Ibiza (Sa Coma), and in this edition it takes another step in caring for our Heritage, especially of our seabed. (More information on page 8)
The 5th edition of Ibicine is going to be a very special edition as it will be sponsored for the first time by the international actress PAZ VEGA, a reference in Spanish cinema, and the actor Jon Plazaola, who is already a lifetime godfather of this Ibiza festival. It is also the "greenest" edition and more linked to the territory, in which specific actions related to learning, caring for and filming on the Posidonia Oceànica, an endemic plant of the Mediterranean Sea, will take place. In addition, international parallel sections are opened precisely oriented to the oceans and in which the Eucerin brand, very aware of caring for the planet through the formulas of its products without microplastics, will deliver an award.

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) will occur both Live in San Jose / Silicon Valley and Globally via its proprietary Virtual platform. Cinequest has been a leader in building community, audiences, and opportunity for film and filmed media via groundbreaking tech and paradigms for decades and will continue the golden combination of live and online post pandemic.

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.
