Cinequest 30th to celebrate the real revolutionaries, the Mavericks

In the past year, our country increased its national debt by $1.9 trillion, including $245 billion in bailout funds as part of a greater effort to create change. Conversely, Cinequest, a company that has stayed in the black since inception, spent less than $2 million to create change by empowering the artistic revolutionaries of our time: the Mavericks, those who astound, electrify, inspire, laugh, pioneer—and in turn create rippling effects throughout the world. The 20th Anniversary Cinequest Film Festival (CQFF20), Feb. 23 – March 7, 2010, celebrates the vision of Cinequest’s founding artists and innovators: Mavericks.

Highlights include:
A record 76 U.S., North American, and World Premieres.
Directors of global impact including Mika Kaurismäki (The House of Branching Love, The Sound of Rio: Brasileirinho, Moro No Brasil), Alain Resnais (Wild Grass, Hiroshima mon amour), Joon-ho Bong (Mother, The Host), Dagur Kari (The Good Heart, Noi the Albino)
