The next-gen platform for Festivals’ lovers

Not just an on-line platform but a vision

Our Vision

netfest was born from the idea of bringing the kind of cinema presented in film Festivals to a wider audience. Collaborating with the curators and organisers of international events, netfest seeks to spread a vision of cinema that is both cultured and popular, essentially linked to the places and identity of the festivals, but at the same time, able to speak to a worldwide audience.

Not simply a support to festivals for organising their on-line edition, but the desire to offer spectators a privileged showcase through which to deepen and increase their film culture, alongside those who have made film not only a passion, but a profession.

netfest does not seek to replace live festivals, but to support them and enhance their diffusion. It also does this by creating an information system that helps people become aware of it.

We believe in the strength of this combination:

Thousands of new films for viewers, and hundreds of thousands of new festival audiences.

Designed for Festivals and
for those who love them

Through sharing with its technological partner, Ready Bytes Soft. Labs, an advanced and unique platform, netfest can offer Festivals the most advanced experience of participated hybrid event in the world.
netfest is the first platform that addresses not only the festivals so that they can organise their on-line events, but also an increasingly sought-after and attentive audience, which for the first time will be able to actively participate in any festival event the world over.

Watch the best films in premiere

While using  netfest, festivals will be able to increase their audience exponentially, viewers will be able to see hundreds of films, often when they are world premieres, or films that will never be distributed in their own country.

Premieres of films, retrospectives, focus on directors or little-known cinemas, a multitude of proposals that only Festivals can offer. Organise your agenda, and follow our “avatar initials” to orient yourself at a glance in the festival universe.

Festivals can propose:

World Premiere (Films presented for the first time in the world)

International Premiere (Films presented for the first time outside the country of production)

National Premiere (Films presented for the first time in your country)

Online Premiere (Films presented for the first time on-line)

Heritage Films (Classic or archive films)

But don’t limit yourself to these choices! You can follow the countless proposals that festival curators have to offer better than was ever possible before. It will be a new way for you to read and see a film.

Film Festivals

Periodically, netfest will propose its Festival on Focus and allow you to discover the most interesting films and sections.
