Which are the coolest festivals in the world? a list of 25

Which are the coolest festivals in the world?
Filmmaker Magazine asked their (mostly american) audience and produced this list of 25 "cool festivals".
Most likely with cool parties, free drinks, and open opportunities for indie filmmakers.

Not surprisingly the selection does not list international festivals (besides Locarno) nor established A listers.

So what is YOUR list? Feel free to post a comment.

coolest film festival

It has to be the "Karlovy Vary International Film Festival" or "KVIFF" in the city of karlovy Vary, Czech republic. Its an "A" rated festival and much fun to attend. The city is gorgeous both in terms of architect and women. www.karlovyvaryinternationalfilmfestival.com or www.kviff.com
