About The Best Film Festivals in the World

Watching a movie at the cinema with friends is the best way to relieve yourself from the daily stress, but for the lovers of films, a movie is not enough to create such pleasure that defies fun in itself. For those who want a dramatic set-up or romantic and exotic tone movies, the film festivals are the ideal choice. A weekend or two weeks of films accompanied by local party creates a relaxing holiday in the most exciting cities in the world that are a perfect destination in itself.

 

The Film festivals are as luxurious as the beautiful cities that emerge in the brightest stars at the film premieres and parties."The most exciting of such festivals is that you can watch videos continuously, from eight to two in the morning," said Jennifer Holt, assistant professor of media studies and film at the University of California, Santa Barbara, quoted by Forbes. But that's not all: the crowd of fans who enjoy the experience make you quickly integrate with the non-stop movie madness. "Each film has an impressive audience, even at midnight. You are surrounded by people, on all sides who share the same passion: films. It’s so interesting that they forget to eat or sleep," continued Holt. What surprises the audience is that at the film festivals in Cannes, Berlin and Toronto are premieres. Telluride Film Festival, a ski resort in the mountains of Colorado, has public movies that were not previously run in American cinemas.

 

I warmly welcome all lovers of film festivals and I want to say that the main goal of a festival is to increase interaction between various cultures and strengthen friendly relations between them involving its citizens to new works by talented, contemporary authors, performers and creative teams. I hope this information will be one of the most important and it will let you know about many memorable events. I wish you, dear friends, new creative discoveries, fruitful journeys, bright and joyful experience.
