In each version, FENAVID offers the public more than 150 screenings of feature films, short films, music videos and a series of audiovisual works that are exhibited free of charge for the public.

FENAVID always has first-rate guests. The event was attended by internationally renowned figures such as Celso Franco, protagonist of "7 boxes", Marisol Correa, Colombian actress, Alexandre Rodrigues and Leandro Firmino de Hora (protagonists of the acclaimed Brazilian film "Ciudad de Dios"), the Argentine producer Vanessa Ragone (winner of the Oscar for Best Foreign Film in 2010), Bolivian directors Marcos Loayza and Rodrigo Bellot and Argentine actress Aymará Rovera, to name a few.

Beyond glamor and film screenings, FENAVID is a macro meeting where producers, directors, actors, specialists and a whole multitude of people passionate about cinema converge.

During the days of its realization, the Festival has a series of parallel activities, such as children's film shows, video clip competition, workshops, talks, colloquia and debates.

One of the most anticipated events of FENAVID is the Santa Cruz 100X100 Film Production Meeting. It consists of bringing together 25 emerging film talents in Latin America.

"The fantastic emerges from reality like the moon over a misty swamp".

The idea of the Festival comes from our passion for Pallars Sobirà, a faraway region in the Pyrenees, for its stories and legends, and for cinema. Our concern for preserving the most mysterious legacy of this territory has grown to finally become the Tabaca Film Fest.

It is indeed a land full of myths and legends, but every corner of the world has its own Yeti, its own mermaid, its own werewolf, its own mountain guardian, in short, its own mythological imaginary.

With the Tabaca Film Fest, we want to recover all these stories from the Pallars, the Pyrenees and elsewhere, through the art we know best, cinema.

We believe that this Festival can bring together several values in which we believe: quality cinema and preservation of the historical-mythological memory, in an incomparable natural setting.

The Tabaca Film Fest - the mythological film Festival of the Pyrenees - is a Festival in which fiction, animation and documentary genres participate in a short-film format, and which consists of an international competition section and complementary activities.

The first edition of the Tabaca Film Fest will be held in Vall de Cardós from the 27th to the 29th of September 2024 in person.

It will consist of an opening ceremony, screenings of the finalist films, and a closing gala with the award ceremony. In parallel, there will also be talks on local mythology, a guided tour of the most mysterious places in the Vall de Cardós, cultural activities and a concert.

When Worlds Meet

Lapinha da Serra is a small district, full of charm, nestled in the Serra do Cipó region. Illustrated not only for its landscapes and waterfalls, but above all for the Lapinhô people, who welcome visitors in a unique way, making the small district of 600 inhabitants one of those unique places that mix tradition and receptivity to novelty.

It is by recognizing this quality of Lapinha that we invite the filmmakers to weave with us the curatorial line of the 2nd CineLapinhô Exhibition around the theme "When Worlds Meet".

Believing both in the power of cinema in connecting world views, and in our responsibility as agents of culture, we seek to bring to Lapinha and its residents, audiovisual experiences that present encounters between worlds: between cultures, times, realities and ideas; real and imaginary encounters, encounters that make new possible worlds emerge, even if ephemerally.

Thank you for considering our festival for your film!

We are looking for the best features, shorts, docs and animation we can find to present in San Francisco. For 26 years SF IndieFest has developed a great reputation for eclectic, adventurous programming, getting great press for our films and filling theaters with enthusiastic film fans. Dozens of festivals and distributors have requested and received industry accreditation to view SF IndieFest titles at our festivals over the years.

Top 50 Film Festivals Worth The Entry Fee
25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World

“I’m certainly happy that IndieFest exists, because it is a celebration of films that don’t necessarily get distributed widely,” HITS director David Cross says, “I’m happy to be a part of it with my film, which is very much in the category of a low-budget, little indie movie. I’m glad there’s a place for it.” – SF Chronicle

“Sundance may have sold out, but SF IndieFest keeps it real” – Annie Lo, Flavorpill

“While the Bay Area is flush with festivals, this one remains an under-the-radar standout.” – Randy Myers, San Jose Mercury News

“The San Francisco Independent Film Festival, the Bay Area’s version of Slamdance, provides a showcase for edgy cinematic work — and a great excuse to do some serious partying.” – David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle

"The movie business is in a perennial state of constant tension between ambition and collaboration, joyful inventiveness and jaw-dropping paydays. This roiling undercurrent, usually invisible to the public, gushes to the surface in the run-up to the Academy Awards ceremony. There is an antidote, however, to Hollywood’s annual backslapathon: SF IndieFest. The San Francisco Independent Film Festival is a beacon to anybody excited by the basic impulse of making movies. In its heart of hearts, IndieFest is a celebration of the minor miracle of finishing a film and getting it up on a screen in front of a live audience." - Michael Fox, KQED

“For many independent filmmakers, festivals such as SF Indiefest—aka the San Francisco Independent Film Festival–are the only way to bring their works before an audience. For filmgoers, SF Indiefest is the place to see original cinematic works created by directors who want to tell edgy stories which come from their hearts and souls. While some have bemoaned the death of cinema, the curators and filmmakers at SF Indiefest are keeping the craft of film alive.” – David Elijah Nahmod, SF SOUNDS

“SF IndieFest is the one festival of the year where you should throw a dart at the program and take a chance. Not because you’re guaranteed a masterpiece, but because it’s the best fest to see something that would never, ever breach your filter otherwise.” -Michael Fox, KQED

FILMMAKER COMMENTS ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

"Hey Jeff: Just want to shoot you a quick note of thanks on hosting us at IndieFest and giving us our World Premiere. We had a great time and really enjoyed our time at the fest and in SF; it's a great vibe and the diversity of features and shorts in the program made for a really exciting and energized atmosphere. "- Max Gardner, Go/Don't Go

"Festivals bring unexpected benefits. Festivals are essential for brand creation. Premiering at Tribeca was enough to convince people to at least listen to me, but surprisingly it was the San Francisco Indie Fest that was just as crucial for our theatrical release. Our press from this festival helped convince the Red Vic to book us in April (I thank the amazing S.F. publicist Karen Larsen for convincing me of this in advance). We also incorporated festivals into our broader theatrical release, and while we did not claim them as cities in our 17-city count, they helped give us something to crow about."

http://www.filmmakermagazine.com/fall2008/bomb_it.php

"I've got to tell you that Indiefest was one of the greatest experiences of my life. I tell all filmmakers - and festival organizer friends of mine - how you run your fest and how you run each film twice. Every single time people look at me with shocked disbelief. Truly, Bonnie and I loved being a part of the event.
Thanks again for including us. SF Indiefest really made me feel that making YEAR was worth the whole effort.
Best-MIKE CARROLL"

"We LOVED San Francisco, meeting other filmmakers, seeing their films, participating in your screenplay panel and of course our awesome sold-out screening. You have one of the most engaged, passionate cinephile audiences I’ve ever seen at a film fest — they were incredible." - Warren Sonoda, THINGS I DO FOR MONEY, IndieFest 2020

"You have a great and engaging festival and one that draws on extremely passionate indie film audiences you are rabid for amazing content for which you definitely provide in bunches! You support of us and our film is greatly appreciated and we hope we are privileged To be welcomed back again in the future!" - Avi F.

"Thanks for these amazing photos (kudos on composition, lighting, and hyping up the crowd - what a great gift to filmmakers!). A million thanks to you both for pulling off an amazing event. We love the ethos of SF IndieFest and we're so honored to have participated. Thanks for your dedication to uplifting local filmmakers and for putting our all-female team (and our unexpected and important story) in the spotlight. Looking forward to seeing and working with you both again in the future!!" - Leslie Tai, How To Have An American Baby

"Thank you for a wonderful experience. The festival was a blast, the people so kind, the films inspiring, and great vibes all around. I'll be back to catch more films in the coming days." - Kerry Muir, Madame

"Thank you so much for having us and all that you and SF IndieFest do to champion independent film." - Anna Moot-Levin, Matter of Mind

"Thank you all for such a fun festival! You all really did a wonderful job all around and we were honored and grateful to be a part of it!" - Liz McBee, Finding Lucinda

The huge investment in film production is one of the biggest difficulties faced by every director who dreams of making a film. Fortunately, as the performance of mobile phones is getting better and better, it has become possible for many directors, especially new ones, to shoot a film with mobile phones. Yes, a film, not a video.

The goal of our festival is to discover talented people who don't have the resources to make a film that requires a big budget.

A filmmaker's imagination should not be thwarted by the lack of high budget and expensive film equipment. An ambitious director can still make a wonderful film even with a mobile phone.

With a discerning eye, we will select outstanding films among our contestants. Guys with potential will stand out.

Dear directors, we look forward to seeing your professional, innovative and impressive mobile films.

生活,电影与梦。
Go for it, amigo!
