The Itabaiana International Film Festival was created with the aim of enabling and encouraging young audiovisual producers residing in Brazil and abroad to promote their work, thus promoting new productions and professionals in the regional, national and even international segment.
The Festival will feature films of all categories and film genres, through competitive and informative displays; in addition to the promotion of debates on the audiovisual with the lectures / round tables / workshops that will be held.
In 2019, the Festival will take place from November 05 to 09 at Shopping Peixoto and at Cine Laser Itabaiana, in Itabaiana (Sergipe).
THE FIRST SERGIPE INTERIOR FESTIVAL
To hold a festival in the interior of a state is not new for the national cinema, but in Sergipe the Festival saw a great opportunity to spread this type of cultural event in a place where the frequency of cultural events and spaces is much smaller than in Grande Aracaju, thus helping to spread the culture and the audiovisual in the interior.
Itabaiana represents one of the main cities of the state of Sergipe, in several segments. Besides having an intense activity of influence in several areas in the state, which increasingly transcends the regional, a cultural event of national and international character, as such project, can certainly help the city become a reference in the cultural aspect.
The city has a consolidated commercial and cultural structure in traditional national and international events, such as the Book Biennial, among others. The mountain capital also possesses a privileged geographic position in Sergipe, since it is located exactly in the central point of the state. This contributes greatly to an easy locomotion of the visitors to the place of the event, either from any point of the state or even from outside, because the International Airport of Santa Maria is only 60 km.
