Habitar el Cine, Caracas International Contemporary Film Festival is an annual event that seeks to connect the different audiences in the country with the best national and international films.

The festival celebrates and promotes the diversity of cinematography creation, committed to extensive programs, activities, special events, meetings and discussion groups that mark the bridge between the work, author and audience.

This event is not a competitive meeting, instead, it is conceived to see, enjoy, delve into the cinema in a healthy way, far away from the attractive market and closer to the audience, directors, findings and emotions.

The categories to apply in Festhome don't decide the final results of our program.

Habitar el Cine is not a competitive festival where we awarded the best films, but we seek to exhibit and create a bridge between the work, author and audience for a better experience.

Habitar el Cine - Caracas International Contemporary FiIm Festival takes place every year in the city of Caracas, Venezuela.
