VALENCIA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL – CINEMA JOVE celebrates its 35th edition from 19th to 27th of June 2020, and it aims to promote young filmmakers, subsequently limiting the Official Section participants to being under 40 years of age.
Cinema Jove wants to return to the young character that gives the festival its name, by involving the organization team, the industry professionals, the audience and the filmmakers.
Cinema Jove was born as a festival dedicated to filmmaking education and quickly became a festival dedicated to young professional filmmakers, without losing sight of its original educational aspect (currently its Young Audiovisual Workshops/ Meetings/Encounters). Through the years, the Festival has served as an international meeting forum for filmmakers from all over the world, with two Official Sections (feature and short films) as well as special homages, thematic cycles, book presentations and numerous unique events, while fostering the proximity between the audience and film professionals through workshops and discussions.
Cinema Jove, attending to the technological impact in the audiovisual sector, continues including for the fifth consecutive year a competitive official section dedicated to web series.
