The Salento International Film Festival Is a celebration of films and filmmakers, promotes international independent films, in recognition of the fact that movies are the most powerful form of cultural communication and link between cultures' and peoples'.

Founded in 2004 by Luigi Campanile, the Salento International Film Festival emerged as a major cultural event and the top film festival in South Italy. Each year it introduces filmmakers worldwide to the Salento area's unique resources, while celebrating the history and future of the film industry with 5 days of world premieres, special events, seminars, feature films, short films, documentaries.

For the past few years SIFF has organized and run a world tour, taking the festival to international destinations like Zurich, London, Hong Kong, New York, Santiago del Cile, Moscow, San Petersburg, Oslo and more, presenting the “Best of the Fest” event. This gives SIFF the opportunity to showcase some of the best movies presented at the Festival to an international public, in prestigious locations such as Italian Cultural Institutes in the world and Cinema theatres, increasing the visibility and appreciation of such works which struggle to find a distribution channel.

International Festival

Feature film festival


Since its foundation, the Festival has sought the promotion of film culture based on three principles:

1) That the exposure to film culture contributes to the awareness of communities and nations of the need to support their own cinematographic expressions, which are cultural and social ambassadors to the rest of the world.

2) That a showcase of new world cinema is a mirror on to which our local and national filmmaking can measure and compare itself, establishing references of form and content that fosters the reflection and the search for international competitiveness.

3) That films made in Monterrey, Mexico and throughout the world need to be exhibited. A film that is not shown does not exist. Thus it becomes primordial to provide a space for film exhibition.

Philosophical Film Festival / Филозофски Филмски Фестивал is a unique film festival that lives on the crossroads between philosophy and film and is held annually in R. Macedonia. On one side, the festival tries to promote the idea of film as a medium which can provoke philosophical thought and illustrate philosophical ideas. On the other, it aims to trigger aesthetical analysis’ and investigations into film language as a form sui generis and empower young filmmakers and film workers to reflect on key concepts, questions and ideas in order to translate them into the visual language of cinema. It is a pioneering festival of the kind in Macedonia and the region, and one of few in the world connecting film and philosophy.

WORLDFEST NOW ACCEPTS ONLINE FESTHOME SCREENERS! WE HAVE LG & SHARP 110" DIGITAL BIG SCREENS FOR JURIES! WE DO ALSO ACCEPT DVD, BLURAY OR USB FLASH/PEN/JUMP DRIVE FOR JUDGING AND FOR THEATER SCREENING! Region Zero! (If you win a Remi, you may be screened on big Cinemark Theatre screens to 600+ theater audience!! So we need a BluRay, DCP or Jump Drive for the DCP screening! Large juries view your entry on a big digital screen, not a little laptop! We will personally confirm your entry's arrival.

WorldFest is the only film festival in the world that gives your entry a score! Your score can earn you a Remi Award! We do not believe that there can just be three winners in a category, a Gold, Silver and Bronze - so we assign your entry a score from the jury! An A+ wins a Special Jury Award and is considered for the Grand Remi! An A score wins a Platinum Remi, an A- wins a Gold, a B+ wins a Silver and a B wins a Bronze Remi. No Awards are made below a B level score. With more than 4,500 category entries, only about 10-15% actually win a Remi Award, but we feel it is the best possible way to run a festival awards system!

53rd WORLDFEST-HOUSTON SETS FEST DATES, CALLS FOR ENTRIES!

“FORGET SUNDANCE! …WorldFest is one of the best conceived festival productions on the planet!” ~ Craig Outhier, film critic, Phoenix press; Tempe Times.

The 53rd Annual WorldFest-Houston International Film Festival continues its totally dedicated Independent Film screening format for the upcoming April 17-26, 2020 unspooling. WorldFest will screen just 60-80 feature film premieres and over 130 Shorts with a total and absolute emphasis on the American and International Independent feature film and a continuing annual spotlight on award-winning short films and documentary films. Entries Officially Open Aug. 15, 2019. The EarlyBird Entry Deadline is Nov. 15th 2019 – A Mail-By Ship-By Deadline! Entries do not have to arrive by this deadline. The Main Entry Deadline is December 15, 2019.

WorldFest Artistic and Program Director, Kathleen Haney, stated, “We are fiercely dedicated to the Indie Feature and Short Film and look for a quality selection of individual films to maintain a smaller, yet effective program rather than an overly large and unwieldy slate of 150-300 films. Haney continued, “For the 2020 WorldFest we continue to use ‘A good story, well told’ as our time-tested approach to film selection”. WorldFest-Houston now accepts Online, Thumb-Drive & DVD/BR format entries.

This year WorldFest presents its 6th Annual Panorama China, the largest survey of new films from China in the whole, wide world! More than 200 directors and filmmakers will attend from Beijing and Shanghai. China is now the largest box-office and production revenue country in the world, surpassing the USA. There is a special Panorama China theater and a dedicated section of the program book.
WorldFest Grand Remi Award Winner, Ridley Scott commented “WorldFest is in the business of validating excellence!” We are delighted to agree! The mission of WorldFest is to recognize and validate creative excellence in film & video production in every facet and category of filmmaking. Many filmmakers report that a Remi Award from WorldFest opens doors to advance their careers.

WorldFest will continue with its annual Short Film Showcase, a special review of 130+ new short and student films...from the festival that gave first top honors to Spielberg, Lucas, Francis Ford Coppola, Randal Kleiser, The Coen Brothers, Ridley Scott, Robert Rodriguez, Spike Lee, Gavin Hood, John Lee Hancock, Michael Cimino, Leslie Linka Glatter, Oliver Stone, Ang Lee, Atom Egoyan and David Lynch, among many others! Few other festivals have such a “Discovery” track record. WorldFest has emerged as the oldest continuous film festival management in the world with the same executive director, serving with a special vision for 53 consecutive years. A few other festivals are older, but they have had as many as ten different directors. It is the oldest film festival in The South, and the 3rd oldest International Film/Video Festival in North America, after San Francisco & NYC.

The 53rd Annual WorldFest-Houston International Film Festival highlights include a Red Carpet Opening Night Gala, the Remi Awards Banquet with top honors presented to more than 1,000 up-and-coming attending filmmakers from over 75 countries from round the globe, there are 9 Master Classes in Film & Video Production, a nightly Festival Club at the HQ Westin-Memorial City Hotel, Indie Panels, a VIP tour of NASA with a special police escort and an exciting Houston Yacht Club Sailing Regatta & Texas BBQ. All offer superb networking opportunities!

WorldFest began in August 1961, as Cinema Arts, an International Film Society. It began screening Independent, foreign & art films. It became an officially competitive International Film Festival seven years later, in April 1968, and has been in continuous operation since. It is one of the original three film festivals in North America, with San Francisco and New York as the first two events. Following WorldFest was Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, and Seattle. Then Sundance and SXSW, Toronto and Tribeca. Now there are more than 3,500 USA film festivals of various types, levels and quality, most being simply non-competitive screening events!
