SANFIC, Santiago International Film Festival, is a cinematic, cultural, artistic, industrial and educational platform, as well as a privileged symbol for the city and the country of Chile.
In its eleventh version –SANFIC11– producers, directors, distributors, film critics, actors and audiences converge around the most recent and important productions from Chile and the world, giving Santiago and the whole country a unique context in which to come together and enjoy high-quality, current material.
The excellent results obtained in SANFIC10 –numerous attendance, international visitors, quality and novelty of the films shown, wide press coverage, diverse additional activities with high attendance and the growth we have seen in the important space SANFIC Industria– confirmed that SANFIC has become a referent for Chilean and international cinematic work: a cultural window through which Chile peeks and connects with the world.
SANFIC11 has two feature film competitions: an international one, in which we include films from around the world; and a Chilean cinema competition, where the most recent local productions participate. Also, the Local Talent short film competition. Alongside this, we include a complete panorama of recent international feature films and a Work in Progress section for Latin American films in developmental stages.
The Festival’s parallel activities include panels, expositions and lectures dictated by important personalities of the local and international cinematic world, stemming from the universes of cinema, industry, education and culture.
FRESCO: a New Formula of a Film Festival
Fresco is an international initiative that represents a thoroughly new format, distinct from the notions typical to the society. A festival that aims at the presentation of international spiritual works and cultural pieces combined with the organization of free and healthy social discussions concerning the issues raised by them.
Many festivals demonstrate films on global problems in the frameworks of their program. As a rule, after such films the audience needs to discuss and adopt what they have seen, however, the film remains the only source for an answer to the questions arisen. “FRESCO” film reviews come to fill in this gap.
FRESCO: an Informal Approach
"FRESCO" offers an informal approach to the participants of the film festival along all the stages of the festival starting from the film review up to the places the events are held, from the seat up to the prize.
The wonderful films, photo exhibitions, and shows brought to Armenia will go out from cinemas and literally “enter the streets”.
Round-the-clock open air demonstrations and film reviews “with no ticket” will literally become part of the Armenians’ everyday life 10 days on.
FRESCO Film-Program: Let’s Speak the Language of Humanism
The festival will contain both competitive and non-competitive programs. Fiction and documentary, full-length and short-length films and video materials of different formats, in which wars, violence, national, religious and any other types of discrimination, ecological disasters of human origin are denounced, and where peace, tolerance, humanism and global values are advocated.
About the Global problems in a Comprehensible/Simple Language
Not only the creators of the film strip will take part in the discussions following, but also church clerks, psychologists and specialists directly concerning the issues arisen in the film and people responsible for the field. Any conceptual and technical detail concerning the film review is to contribute to the active and unconstrained participation in the discussions. The specialists will be part of the film watchers, professional orations will be replaced by unconstrained communication and active discussions. The films and direct communication with their creators will enable to “notice” the claimed issues in our country, observe them in the context of other countries’ experience, and the discussion with the people specialized and responsible for the field will become one of the most effective ways of developing versions for the solution to those issues.
FRESCO is Open to Anyone
The festival also gives a special importance to the employment of special social groups and especially individuals with limited abilities. Due to the cooperation with the institutes specialized in the field individuals with a disablement will not only participate in all the measures of the festival, but also be actively involved in all the organizational works of "FRESCO".
The goals of the festival are:
- To promote the establishment of love, solidarity, and human values in the society with the help of spiritual and cultural dialogue,
- To spread international and religious tolerance,
- To create and promote the development of spiritual and moral films and to rise their social awareness as a social-cultural factor,
- To promote the communication among cultural representatives of different countries and the creation of mutually beneficial field for their collaboration.
Cinema figures of world-wide fame and other guests corresponding to the subjects of the films shown, that is - church clerks, the intellectuals, musicians, psychologists, etc., will be invited to Armenia from different countries to participate in the festival.

The TranScreen Film Festival is a multi-day film festival with international films on themes of transgender and/or gender diversity. During TranScreen you can enjoy feature films and shorts, mainstream and experimental, professional and community films from different countries. TranScreen is the largest transgender film festival in Europe.
TranScreen is a cultural and informative film festival on the theme of transgender and gender diversity. The festival aims to show qualitative and challenging films from all over the world. The aim is to increase public awareness to provide the versatility of transgender and gender diverse people.
Simultaneously, TranScreen is an event in which (trans)gender diversity is the norm. A public space where everyone can be themselves in a secure environment. Regardless of gender orientation or sexual preference. A place to meet up and exchange international experiences in a relaxed and spontaneous way.
TranScreen has a clear social mission. Many ‘closet’ transgender people, or those that have left that noun behind long time ago and are no longer within the transgender community, come to TranScreen. Therefore, the festival offers a special meeting. This is an important asset, the impact should not be underestimated.
Ceau, Cinema! Festival de Buzunar came from the need to befriend the people of Timișoara with the European cinema, with their cinema, which has been missing lately from the local scenery.
It all started in 2014 with 4 days of workshops and screenings in Timișoara and Gottlob (a village with the first restored movie theater in Romania’s countryside).
Our mission: to promote European and Romanian films and to prove that they are as catchy and attractive as Hollywood cinema, but much closer to our hearts. And, foremost, that watermelons taste better than popcorn.
The 2nd edition of the Festival Ceau, Cinema! will take place during July 22nd – 26th in Timișoara and Gottlob and it will bring to the public European films, both recent box-office films and independent ones, documentaries and short animations, trying to meet the most various tastes.
Thie 2nd edition of the Festival Ceau, Cinema! includes an international competition section dedicated to feature films (fiction, non-fiction or animation). The call is open for filmmakers from countries with minorities in the Banat region: Armenia, Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Germany, Israel, Italy, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey, Ukraine, Hungary, and also productions which bring into the spotlight different ethnic groups such as Aromanians, Rroma, Tatars.
The Ceau Cinema! Festival Award is endowed with 1,000 euro. The prize will be awarded to the film director. There will also be an Audience Award, in value of 500 euro.
Further details on the competition, the entry form and FAQ are available on www.ceaucinema.ro or through e-mail at: email@example.com.
