Cinema and Technology Festival

The International Fest of Cinema and Technology (IFCT) announces an upcoming event at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Washington, DC on October 15th and 16th. Festival projects include short comedies, dramas, animations, experimental films, music videos and documentaries and are from independent filmmakers from a variety of countries.
Countries with films represented at the upcoming DC event include the U.S., U.K., Canada, Sweden, Ireland, Norway, France, Italy, Portugal, Italy, Malta, Switzerland, Brazil, Australia, The Netherlands and New Zealand.
The International Fest of Cinema and Technology has been presenting touring film festival events since 2002. In addition to the October Washington, DC event, this year’s IFCT 2007 World Tour is also taking place in Los Angeles, Melbourne, New York, London, Orlando and The Philippines.
The IFCT World Tour is designed to give exposure to independent films many of which previously had been underexposed to the public. The festival's motto is it seeks to "discover the undiscovered film." The "technology" in the festival's name occurs both in the content of the festival, which tends to focus on themes of technology or feature unique creation techniques, as well as in the method of showcasing content at the events. Many of the films that will be showcased at the Washington, DC event are making their premieres in the US.
