Subject: The 3rd Inigo Film Festival celebrates faith and spirituality on World Youth Day in Madrid

In the Spotlight, Withoutabox

Madrid - SPAIN
August 16 to 19, 2011

Dear Carson,

In the Spotlight this week is THE INIGO FILM FESTIVAL (TIFF), an international celebration of films on topics of faith and spirituality, taking place on World Youth Day in Madrid, Spain.

Organized by the Catholic Church, World Youth Day is attended by millions looking to build bridges between continents, peoples, and cultures. As such, TIFF's official selections screen in front of a large international audience, guaranteeing tremendous exposure. Winning filmmakers will receive transportation to attend the Festival in Madrid and the opportunity to promote their films in person, as well as awards and cash prizes totaling €5,000. An Audience Award will be presented as well as the Fidel Goetz Emerging Filmmaker Award, recognizing the best film by a young filmmaker who does not have access to professional equipment.

The Inigo Film Festival showcases short films made by filmmakers under the age of 35, covering a wide variety of interpretations on the Festival's theme, "City of God." The Festival seeks filmmakers who successfully integrate religious, spiritual, and social themes with the resources of film as a modern artistic medium.

March 15, 2011 - Regular Deadline
Upgraded projects save $5 on this deadline

The mission of The Inigo Film Festival is summed up by a quote from Pope John Paul II: "The cinema enjoys a wealth of languages, a multiplicity of styles and a variety of narrative forms that are truly great: from realism to fable, from history to science fiction, from adventure to tragedy, from comedy to news, from animated cartoon to documentary. It thus offers an incomparable storehouse of expressive means for portraying the various areas in which the human being finds himself and for interpreting his inescapable calling to the beautiful, the universal and the absolute."

Submitted films must be 20 minutes in runtime or less, and may explore spirituality, the experiences of today's youth, the presence or absence of God in our modern secularized world, or the twin dimensions of faith and justice.

If your film fits the bill, don't miss this chance to show your spiritual, illuminating, or religious film to appreciative audiences in Madrid during this spectacular event...submit to The Inigo Film Festival today!
