HARD:LINE International Film Festival

Logo of HARD:LINE International Film Festival

HARD:LINE International Film Festival aims to present the various faces of extreme cinema.

The question as to what is meant by the term “extreme” can be understood by looking at the content of our wide selection of fantastic films. “Extreme” is often defined by an explicit splatter aesthetic but it can also be represented by unusual story-telling methods or an exotic visual language. Thus, we are meticulously selecting such examples that could be important in the future of the genre. We have not set any boundaries in our search and whether a film is a pearl of the independent scene, fun splatter or no-brainer, H:LIFF loves special films!

HARD:LINE International Film Festival is no warehouse festival where the priority is to show as many films as possible but rather [...]

SPREADING ANIMATION FOR 45 YEARS

CINANIMA is an animation film festival organised by NASCENTE – Cooperative Society with Cultural Purposes, and by the Espinho City Hall. Ever since its first edition, back in 1976, it has been working continuously to promote this form of cinema and its authors. It has been considered a precursor of cultural decentralisation in Portugal, as CINANIMA has won international recognition while not belonging to the main cultural centres of Lisbon or Porto.

The Festival is organized by a non-profit association, it is approved by ASIFA – Association International du Film d’Animation – and is supported by the Ministry of Culture/ ICA I.P. – Institute of Cinema and Audiovisual, the Ministry of Youth/ Portuguese Institute of Youth, the Portuguese Tourism [...]

NEW - Please read carefully about ReAON (ReAnimania ONline Animation Film Festival).

ReAnimania International Animation Film Festival of Yerevan was founded by cartoonist, painter and animator Vrej Kassouny in 2008.

Armenia’s history in animation had begun 70 years prior, with the release of the first Armenian film, Lev Atamanov’s (né Levon Atamanyan) The Dog and the Cat in 1938.

In striving to honor the craft in both spirit and in name, the Festival has since reintroduced the art of animated filmmaking to Armenian audiences.

The festival includes a selection of highly anticipated non-commercial features and shorts with 15 in-competition and non-competition programs and a Market Forum for Animation Professionals (MARANI). The festival also offers an array of practical [...]

The 2020 edition of "Message to Man" was likely not to happen, but finally, it did.

With all necessary precautions, thousands of viewers could watch the newest films from the competition and out-of-competition programs shown in Saint Petersburg. Unexpectedly, the online mode didn't mitigate the topicality of presentations and discussions. Master-classes by Viktor Kossakovsky, Lauren Greenfield, and Anders Østergaard evoked great interest both offline and online and allowed us to practice new forms of communication especially relevant for the post-pandemic era.

Jury consisting of many iconoclastic filmmakers of today (such as Anders Østergaard from Denmark, Adilkhan Erzhanov from Kazakhstan, Ilya Khrzhanovsky from Russia) made an unexpected and somewhat paradoxical choice, [...]

HIGHLIGHTED

International Festival

Feature film festival

In recent decades, and at one time to the emergence of new technologies that have ended up scanning most of the processes of the film, the documentary has known a notorious and systematic growth around the world. In our country, and for more than one decade, a production before linked almost exclusively to fiction has been swelling their ranks with new topics, new approaches, new geographies, new dilemmas.

It is in this context that FIDBA is proposed as the 1st. International Film Festival dedicated to this genre which films with the same fans - as long as we believe that the forms and the doings of the documentary film are different from those of the fiction - may meet and dialogue among them and with the public. If the documentary is a meeting point for the FIDBA, it is [...]
