ACT 17. LIST OF FILM FESTIVALS.

.

A film festival is an organized, extended presentation of films in one or more movie theaters or screening venues, usually in a single locality. Increasingly film festivals show part of their films to the public by adding outdoor movie screenings. The films may be of recent date and, depending upon the focus of the individual festival, can include international releases as well as films produced by the organizers’ domestic film industry. Sometimes there is a focus on a specific film-maker or genre (e.g., film noir) or subject matter (e.g., horror film festivals). A number of film festivals specialize in short films, each with its defined maximum length. Film festivals are typically annual events.

ACT 17. FESTIVALS DE CINEMA.

.

Un festival de cinema és la presentació organitzada i àmplia d’una sèrie de films en un o més sales de projecció, normalment en una mateixa localitat. De cada cop més, els festivals de cinema mostren part dels films al públic a través de mostres fora dels cinemes. Els films solen tenir una data d’estrena recent i, depenent de l’enfocament indicidual del festival, poden incloure produccions internacionals i films produïts per la indústria de cinema nacional. Sovint els festivals es centren en un gènere cinematogràfic específic (ex: film noir) o bé un tema concret (ex: festivals de cinema de terror). Alguns festivals s’especialitzen en curtmetratges, d’acord amb una durada determinada. Els festivals de cinema tenen una periodicitat annual.
