    Lights, camera, action! Theaters across San Jose are taking part in the 2015 International Festival of Cinema.

    The 2015 International Festival of Cinema in Costa Rica kicked-off last week bringing films, directors, writers and aficionados from across the Americas, Europe and beyond to San Jose for 8 days of independent films, documentaries and visual art. It started last night and runs for 8 days until Friday 18th December.

    Six-four films will be shown in 9 different cinemas and theaters, predominantly on the east side of San Jose. The works come from over 25 countries, helping to make the festival’s program both full and eclectic. Films range from those that have already received international recognition — perhaps from bigger film festivals such as the Berlin International Film Festival — to those that are hoping to gain attraction over the coming year and other showings.

    Why

    The festival provides an important opportunity for the film-makers to not only receive some acclaim and prize money but, with the eyes of the wider international community on the standouts, recognition and opportunity will surely follow.

    Who

    Judges from Costa Rica, Mexico, the US, Spain, France and Argentina will announce winners from 6 categories including:

    • Best International Feature
    • Best Central American Feature
    • Best National Feature

    For viewers, however, the festival offers an opportunity to enjoy something that stands out from the familiar with and revel in the atmosphere of the festival.

    When

    A full schedule of events — including a synopsis and often a trailer of all the films — can be found on the festival’s website. More information is also available on their Facebook page.

    Where

    Cine Magaly in Barrio California, El Teatro de La Aduana and the National Centre for Culture (CENAC) by Parque Nacional are the main venues, but others include the National Theater and somewhere that resembles a living room in Barrio Escalante.
