should touch on the intercultural aspect of the relationship.

MISSION & OBJECTIVE

C&Ciif's (CULTURE&CULTURES Intercultural International Film Festival) aims in a spirit of openness and dialogue, to offer a place for new and established filmmakers to showcase films that further intercultural dialogue and global understanding through the power of cinema.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

The Annual CULTURE&CULTURES Intercultural International Film Festival (C&CIIFF), created by the non-profit association “Culture&Cultures”, presents a selection of international films, both documentary and fiction, with a platform committed to intercultural exchange and dialogue.

This year we have chosen one theme in the competition:
“INTERCULTURAL RELATIONSHIPS and their CHALLENGES"

The competition theme covers both:
Documentaries
Feature films

These films may be about many different aspects of life.

The relationship between woman and man, group and individual,
work and play, sustainability and consumerism, politics and religion,
food and health, nature and humanity. … all films
should touch on the intercultural aspect of the relationship.
.

C&CIIFF presents feature films and documentaries on an equal footing and in particular highlights the border areas and interstices between the various genres.

We’re looking for new trends in cinema for our thematic competition.
Films that are World premieres and European premieres will receive
preference.

The Festival is committed to exhibiting films that express fresh voices and differing global perspectives. The selection focuses on works that explore ways of life, attitudes, and ways of thinking that confront given assumptions around conflict.Both a showcase and a film forum, C&CIIFF is also conceived to encourage the participant to reflect on our world today.

Intercultural dialogue encourages an identification of the boundaries that define individuals, and then asks them to relate across those boundaries and even to call them into question, reflecting on the human condition and the ONEness of man.

The forums bring together emerging filmmakers, established film professionals and intercultural experts. In the spirit of communication that characterises the Festival, the forums are open to the public.

The exchange continues around the table - intercultural dining being an integral part of the Festival. In the spirit that reflects the ethos of the Festival - think global, act local - meals inspired by a global palate are prepared using our excellent local produce.

Adjacent to the Festival we have developed an Artist in Residence program connecting filmmakers, writers and composers to provide a creative environment for them to develop new work that supports independent film, exploring the ever-changing production and distribution landscape.

News for 2011-12
