Cinetoro Expèrimental Film Festival

Deadline 31 august 2019
CINETORO is the pioneering space, in the exhibition of experimental content in cinema, which seeks to show excellence and innovation in the independent production of the world. Celebrate aesthetic diversity, new narratives, new media and formats; a program that reveals the complexity of social, cultural and artistic phenomena. We understand "experimental cinema, like cinema that originates from the visual arts". A divergent cinema, that vanishes the boundaries with art, emphasizing the experimental modes of creation; enhancing the alternative creative processes that prefer beauty to business, language to industry, the aesthetic importance to the number of spectators and the formation of the public to the show.
CINETORO EXPERIMENTAL FILM FESTIVAL invites artists, filmmaker’s producers and independent distributors to submit their films and participate in the creation of the curatorship and the 2019 official program.
Main goal:
Share the divergence, innovation, and the new ways of independent cinema where experimentation is transversal in the construction of a cinema, which precedes the industrial apparatus. A film festival that is gestated from the alternative, a nexus between the public and the invisible experimental production, that which diffuses far from the reach of traditional exhibition circuits.
The Curator:
It consists of 80 films of short and long duration, in different formats (fiction, documentary, animation, video art and experimental) compiled in different sections, for all audiences (Frame, a compilation of works for children, Panorama, a compilation of works for young audiences, and Art, a section with works that overflow the bidimensionality) the component of exhibition of the festival is competitive, awarding prizes to the Best Regional, National and International Work.
We have a guest jury, composed of national and international artists and filmmakers in charge of granting the merits to the productions that respond to the curatorial line of the event. There are no cash prizes. However, the festival advances negotiations with sponsors and allies for in-kind support to encourage the creation, production, post-production, distribution and alternative circulation that will be communicated in due time. The winners will receive a kinetic statuette of the festival, the SANTORO, designed by maestro Carlos Santa, pioneer of experimental animation in Colombia and member of our organizing committee.
