HARD-TO-GET INFO • An event by this name may exist, but we have not been able to find even basic information about it. The listing remains available for your reference.
MISSION & OBJECTIVE
There is a group of films, unseen by a public audience.
Films that multiplex cinemas are not interested in screening.
Fims that commercial distributors reject.
There is a group of emerging filmmakers, with innovative ideas, concepts and funding resources.
There is an experimental and critical cinema that portrays under represented social sectors, often unseen in mainstream cinema. Like the B-grade movies of the past, they don’t necessarily follow standard production modes often having low budgets, short shooting periods [sometimes just few days], using unknown actors [or emerging ones], and running between 70 and 90 minutes.
This festival brings together those films which are discriminated against by other festivals, those that only accept 35mm prints for exhibition, and films that do not have the necessary commercial profile to guarantee a 'full house' at their screenings.
We focus on the cinema of the future, on the new generation of filmmakers that are now gaining attention at foreign film festivals.
We celebrate early works, first and second features, low budget, innovative and independent films.
With the democratization of the cinematic arts becoming a reality, it is now possible to make films with limited resources. This festival tries to bring the audience closer to this new phenomenon along with some prominent filmmakers who have already taken the first steps in the battle for the cinematic screenings of these films.
