Cinema Jove

Valencia International Film Festival


Welcome to the Cinema Jove International Film Festival, that has been committed to acting as a meeting point for young filmmakers from the Four Corners of the globe. Every month of June, Valencia becomes this meeting point as the most interesting and creative films are brought out into the limelight. There are two sections where films compete in: one for feature films screened for the first time in Spain and another for the best, most consolidated shorts on the international scene; these constitute the thrust of a programme which also embraces tribute to veteran filmmakers, young 'cult movie' directors, exhibitions, professional meeting points... The Valencia event reflects the firm commitment to a cinema of quality for people from all walks of life; Cinema Jove is now among the top most important international film festivals held in Spain.
