Oscar® qualifying Cinequest Film & VR Festival will close submissions next November, 15th

Now in its 30th year, Cinequest Film & Vr Festival has grown to become an audiences favorite, as proven in a vote amongst USA Today readers, who chose it as the best film festival they knew. Cinequest programs 85-90% of its festival from paid submissions annually, which makes it a truly and literally popular film festival.

Cinequest connects artists, innovators, media, and audiences—as people converge to experience a potent mix of immersive stories from around the globe and breakthrough technologies. Yet, Cinequest’s stellar reputation not only hinges on its knack for creating a powerful line-up, but also for securing distribution for many of its honored filmmakers. Netflix, IFC Films, Amazon, MSNBC Films, Oscilloscope, Sony Pictures, Magnolia Pictures, Kino-Lorber, eOne, Lionsgate, PBS, and HBO are just a few of the many that have signed deals with some of Cinequest's success stories.

Competitions in Cinequest are structured according to innovative models: instead of a more traditional separation in narrative types competitions, Cinequest welcomes television episodes and webisodes in short and long format, runs a Comedy feature competition, accepts films produced in high schools and colleges, and has a specific competition for music videos, among other unique choices made by the festival programming team.

OSCAR® QUALIFYING FESTIVAL: Cinequest Film & Vr Festival short film winners will be pre-selected for the Academy Award® in the short film categories, as organised by the Hollywood Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Science.

Do not miss your chance to be part of today's great film festivals, and submit your film to Cinequest Film & Vr Festival before November, 15th!
