• International Committee of Sustainable Thematic Film Festivals •
Many film festivals are held all over the world. They are all on different subjects and thema. But they all have common goals and needs. The basic needs of festivals are to find films, communicate with directors, dialogue between countries and signing a strong organization. Many countries now have difficulties in doing this. This is due first to the pandemic, then to the war and the consequent economic and political reasons. Strong teamwork is needed to organize strong festivals. For this, high-level committees and federations need to be formed.
All independent festivals can become members:
- Tourism Film Festivals,
- Short Film Festivals
- Feature Film Festivals
- Documentary Festivals
- Thematic Festivals
(Music, Sport, Eco, Healt, Rural, Event, History etc...)
- Film Companies
- Cinema representatives
- Tourism professionals
- Ministers of Culture and Tourism, managers, directors
- Actor and Actress
The purpose of the committee: to bring together thematic film festivals all over the world, to increase dialogue between countries, strengthen film sharing between festivals, to develop cooperation between festivals, (film application, director information, official guest information) to create a strong federation image and develop new projects (film production, documentary and film projects, co-productions etc..). All this is inspired by a single denominator for the protection of our world and, above all, that of the generations to come: SUSTAINABILITY, as sanctioned by the United Nations in the "Agenda 2030".
With the international meeting held in Istanbul on 24.11.2022, the International Committee of Sustainable Thematic Film Festivals (CINETOUR) was established, open to all member countries of the United Nations, with the support of UNESCO and the Council of Europe. The works were opened with the greeting of the Director of the Council of Europe, Venice office, Mrs. Pavan. The meeting was attended by 30 founding members from 19 member countries. The CINETOUR committee, which aims to bring together thematic film festivals, directors, artists, media-culture-art representatives and many important personalities from the world who make the United Nations AGENDA 2030 their fundamental point, is the first and only committee in the world in this sense.
We will be honored to see you and your country in this committee. Best Regards
