Cinequest is Northern California's premier motion picture institute that produces: Cinequest Film Festival, a soul-stirring and personable discovery festival of international films and digital forums for movie lovers, Maverick film artists and students; Cinequest Online, the Internet's premier film marketing and distribution site; Cinequest Digital Studio; Youthquest; and Cinequest Screenwriting Competition.
ACADEMY QUALIFYING
Cinequest is honored to announce that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has elected to recognize the Cinequest Film Festival as a qualifying festival for the Short Films category for the 78th Annual Academy Awards®. Recipients of the Best Short Narrative and Best Short Animation prizes will qualify for consideration for an Academy Award® without the standard theatrical run, provided the film complies with the Academy's rules.
SCREENWRITING COMPETITION
The Cinequest 15 Screenwriting Competition is now accepting screenplay entries. Winners receive cash prizes as well as great industry exposure. Last year Cinequest had only 271 entries in competition. Your odds of winning a finalist spot are much greater than contests with thousands of entries, plus Cinequest has an impeccable reputation as one of the best film festivals around.
