This is a short survey that will only take 5-10 minutes to complete and everyone who completes the survey will be entered to win a 2015 Festival Pass!

Thank you in advance for your time.

COMING UP THIS WEEKEND!

After what was the busiest opening weekend of our festival ever, with a record number of sold out shows, we have added a second screening of the popular film Who is Dayani Cristal? Other highlights for the weekend include the Chilean film The Dance of Reality (the return to cinema of Alejandro Jodorowsky). The Brazilian Gala film The Way He Looks is selling fast (actor Fabio Audi will be in attendance), we''ll also be screening the acclaimed Vasque film Happy New Year, Grandma (director Telmo Esnal will be in attendance).
