The ULA Táchira Film Club and the Bordes Cultural Foundation officially open the call to participate in the IX Encuentro Para Cinéfagos 2019, inviting all filmmakers and audiovisual producers, both amateur and professional, to submit their works of up to twenty (20) minutes of any kind or origin in any of the categories of the festival (fiction, documentary, video-art, video-dance, music video and animation).

Since 2011, movie lovers who meet weekly in what we call "meeting for Cinéfagos", in order to contemplate and comment on films from different eras, genres, styles and cultures, decided to make a bigger meeting, where we would see works of our region and we held workshops with specialists in the appreciation and cinematographic realization. This year we arrived at our 9th meeting, an event that has been carried out in different versions: show, festival, international symposium, among others, but since its inception is a party for Cinéfagos, where you can taste and learn about cinema as a medium .

The seventh art has used its own resources to tell stories like no other art had done before, showing almost unknown realities, expanding the possibilities of transmitting emotions based on elements of different disciplines (music, painting, dance, among others) to complement and achieve to bring truth screens in a more poetic way. The cinema changed the way we perceive our environment, making us more aware of what happens or what can happen.

Last January, 122 years were celebrated since Manuel Trujillo Durán inaugurated the Venezuelan cinema in Maracaibo, on January 28, 1897, with the premiere of "A Famous Specialist Pulling Wheels at the Gran Hotel Europa" and "Girls Bathing in the Lake of Maracaibo ", in the Baralt Theater. In our city, Bordes celebrated this date with the inauguration of the production house Para Cinéfagos, a space to project, comment and produce films, in addition to imparting knowledge about the different parts that make up a film production. This institution, together with Bordes Galería-Café are part of the Bordes family.

Over the years, this meeting has served as a platform to publicize regional, national and even international audiovisual works, including lectures and workshops that complement the training of interested parties, being an ideal space for meeting and discussing ideas around to the seventh art. This year, the appointment is on August 8, 9 and 10 at the College of Engineers San Cristóbal, headquarters of Para Cinéfagos and Bordes Galería-Café.

 Some guests who have accompanied us in the eight previous editions are: Gerard Uzcátegui, Manuela Planas, Gabriel La Cruz, Atahualpa Lichy, Kaori Flores Yonekura, Rodolfo Izaguirre and many more, including promoters and local producers.

Following the great success of the First Edition of the Asylum Fantastic Fest, which saw over 2,500 presences, over 30 Italian and international guests, about 300 films sent in selection, the Valmontone Culture Department and the OutOut Art Workshop the selections for the Second Edition open.

Born from the idea of ​​the Founder Claudio Miani, it is located in the heart of Lazio, in Valmontone, to become a reference point at national and international level for lovers of the genre, in a vision of long-term cultural project capable of bringing further emphasis , prestige and tourism to the entire territorial area.

An Art Festival as a "living cultural" project, where we do not just want to understand the culture in which we live, the actualization of the theme and the expressive form linked to the world of Horror and Fantastico, but with a wider range, all those experiences with their own roots and those evolutions developed by them, which in the positive sense of globalization interchange themselves in new cultural realities. It is therefore a question of interpreting a world by giving it a new form, perceiving its contents and aspirations in order to manifest them and communicate them through cinema, literature, music, performing arts, comics, animation and live contests. A research full of stimuli and hints, of new linguistic compositions and symbolic horizons, which are best expressed in a visual, narrative and structured diegesis, able to offer new genre perspectives.

The main purpose of the Asylum Fantastic Fest is to provide real visibility and support to the excellence of horror creativity, promoting realities and works that are able to provide new content readings and above all to confront the new 2.0 languages. The search for new trends and the opening up to currently non-standardized basins, allows us to guarantee the realization of a Festival capable of acting as a multi-year point of reference for a current that has always been looking for stimuli and developments. An event that wants to be an opportunity to stimulate collaboration between young Italian and international artists, offering moments of meeting and exchange for the sections present at the Festival.

Contamination is the word that contains sufficiently and clearly the importance that the Asylum Horror Fest reserves in this first edition and will reserve in those to come, the encounter between the different artistic forms. Working in a non-formal environment, where all the entities involved will be jointly responsible for the organization, it will be possible to reach the common goal of creating an expressive context where each of the participants can express their creative potential.
