DotFest Online Film Festival will kick in April 1st


From 1st till 18th of April 2010 DotFest Online Film Festival will take place in the World Wide Web.
















Jonas Mekas

These fine gentlemen honored us by agreeing to be on the jury list:
Jonas Mekas - the godfather of American avant-garde cinema,
Jean-Gabriel Periot - French film director,
and Nag Vladermersky - a person behind the London International Animation Festival and co-director of the Melbourne International Animation Festival.
check the interview with Jonas Mekas

Very soon they will get their hands on the films in the competition [around 40 films out of 400 submitted] divided into 4 categories: fiction, animation, experimental and music video. And it will all end up by awarding 10 000 euro prize fund.


But it's not only the jury who decide the films' destiny - it's you too! From April 1st the audience will have a chance to see all the selected films online for free and vote form them [awarding the Audience Prize this way]. Choose your favorites, share opinions and discuss it all with cinema lovers all over the world.

The jury will also make all their actions online by voting and discussing the films in our chat on April 18th.

And here's an idea for you: make your own internet film festival at your place! Connect huge plasmas, invite friends and watch the films!

And the voting and discussing the programs might get quite tough as we already have some big name on the list which will make any decision a challenge: Thorsten Fleisch, Thomas Hicks, Nacho Vigalondo and Ilya Kolesnokov! And it's only the beginning!

The festival is organized with the great help of our partner, a free video hosting site with DRM protection, where the viewers can watch your video, but not distribute it in any way. And still... all you need is to be online!
