Description

Cinema Novo Film Festival introduces European film-fans to the world of cinema in Latin America, Asia and Africa. Its main aim is to help people understand these cultures and also to demonstrate their value. It was founded in 1984 and first was called Third World Film. The founders’ - Jan De Clercq and Georges Micholt – purpose was to show the cultural values of the developing countries. It became a huge success. After seven years its name was changed and since then is called Novo Film Festival, but its goals remained the same: bringing closer the public of the continent to very rich and diverse cultures. It also offers a platform for those filmmakers who without help can’t really reach wider audience. But as it’s a competition, only high quality works are accepted. It’s a big event with an even bigger social goal.
