March 7-17, Silicon Valley 

SILICON VALLEY — The Cinequest Film & Creative Festival returns this March 6-17th promising an extraordinary cinematic experience that merges the worlds of storytelling and technology. Returning to its palatial San Jose venues and flagship time of year, the program is a testament to Cinequest's 2024 theme of "Uplift" through the potent combination of innovation, the arts, and community.

Continuing its commitment to showcasing the latest and greatest film artists, Cinequest will unveil 217 films from 37 countries — chock-full of comedies, inspiring artistry, and diversity of culture and thought. Cinequest’s groundbreaking AI Town Hall (launching the festivities on March 6th) will bring AI luminaries together with San Jose Mayor Matt Mahan, to address the powers and mitigate the pitfalls of AI for communities and the world of creativity. Cinequest opens its lineup of World and U.S. Premieres with the invigorating thriller The Island Between Tides and closes with Maverick Spirit Award recipient Matthew Modine’s Hard Miles. Cinequest’s Silent Cinema Event will present Douglas Fairbank’s The Mark of Zorro and Buster Keaton's Our Hospitality, accompanied by the breathtaking music of organist Dennis James. Creativity further uplifts before screenings via comedians, dancers, and poets.
Cinequest Festivals, a dynamic blend of both in-person and virtual celebrations, have been steadfast beacons of joy and affirmation for individuals and entire communities. Cinequest fans can enjoy selections from the festival from the comfort of their homes immediately following the festival on Cinequest’s virtual platform, Cinejoy from March 21-31st. Cinejoy continues to evolve beyond a film festival that streams movies to an experience that translates the fun, excitement, and power of live film events to global audiences online. In addition to online screenings available to stream 24/7 during the event, Cinejoy will include live spotlight events, interactive passports, group share, and screening party experiences.


Cinequest AI Town Hall: Preceding the festival, on March 6th at the Hammer Theatre, Cinequest hosts a meeting of the minds, politicians, and creatives to tackle the opportunities as well as the potential issues of AI for communities. It’s fitting that Cinequest, a trusted organization, would host a seminal gathering in the epicenter of AI, the Silicon Valley, and expand the conversation beyond the normal approach of mainstream media. A keynote address will precede two forums: 1) “The Good, Bad, and Ugly of AI — What Communities and Policymakers Need to Know, Address, and Utilize in the Realm of AI&am
