"La Orquidea” - Cuenca International Film Festival

"La Orquidea” - Cuenca International Film Festival is focused essentially on fiction features; it takes place every November in the city of Cuenca in Ecuador.
The Festival comprises six sections, four of which are competitive: Long feature International Competition, First Feature Ibero-American Competition, an Ecuadorian Short Film Competition and production in progress.
After three successful editions, which gathered more than 64.000 spectators, the Festival is positioning itself as one of the main cultural events in Ecuador and aspires to further increase its presence in the region.
Several prominent international film professionals have given workshops and master classes during the Festival. In past editions we have welcomed speakers from Spain, Mexico, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, the United States, among others.
This year, we will also be hosting a Screenplay Laboratory to improve the quality of projects from Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia and Venezuela. Several leading screenwriters from the United States and Latin America will be tutoring the projects.

Named one of the “25 Coolest Film Festivals” in the world by MovieMaker Magazine, the Boulder International Film Festival brings films and filmmakers from around the world to Boulder every President’s Day weekend for a four-day celebration of the art of cinema. BIFF has developed a reputation as one of the most influential young film festivals in the U.S., with an extraordinary number of new-but-unknown feature films, documentaries and shorts that have gone on from early screenings at BIFF to significant box-office success and multiple Oscar nominations.

(BYFF) Boulder Youth Film Festival

BYFF open to filmmakers under 18 all film genres. Mission: 1)acnowledge young and emerging independent filmmakers by selecting films for big screen and 2)provide scholarship to attend national recognized filmmaking workshop

(In)Justice for All Film Festival

In line with the vision of The Next Movement . . .

The U.S. justice system is inhumane and immoral, and can only be changed through the efforts of everyday people passionately working to educate and inform their communities. Core to our success is the conviction that America is committing an incredible injustice on entire populations of its own citizens, and that brought to light, average Americans will become allies in the fight for justice and human rights.

. . . the (In)Justice for All Film Festival (IFAFF) will bring to audiences films that explore our current criminal justice system – police, courts, and corrections – and the for-profit industries that feed at this trough of human misery. We will share the stories of the millions that are relegated to second-class citizenship under an unforgiving system.

We will show better ways that exist in other countries and even best practices right here in America. IFAFF will screen feature length documentaries, as well as topical shorts, with themes covering the following subjects:
 

  • The War on Drugs and its effect on individuals, families, and society

  • The science of addiction

  • The politicization of crime and punishment

  • Global alternatives to imprisonment

  • Incarceration’s impacts on men, women, and children (inside and out)

  • Restorative Justice – Restoring Community Health

  • Good Cop/Bad Cop – Discretionary Police Power

  • History of Incarceration

  • Mental Health in America

  • Immigration

  • The Gang Alternative

  • Prison Reform Movements

  • Politically Motivated Imprisonment

  • Prison Profiteers – The corporations that profit from prison growth

The power of film to educate and influence, to inspire and engage, and to ultimately exponentially grow the numbers of active allies in the fight to end the embarrassing injustice that mass incarceration represents, is the catalyst for the (In)Justice for All Film Festival.
