KINOKI International College Film Festival 2011

KINOKI is the International College Film Festival, which is held every year in February and is organized by students from the Universidad Iberoamericana, through the Department of Communication and the Film Studies area.

Inspired by the ideology of Dziga Vertov, a pillar of Soviet cinema and creator of the kino-glaz or cinema-eye, KINOKI seeks to express a deeper truth through cinema than that which the human eye perceives.

KINOKI was born with the commitment to give voice to young filmmakers around the world, providing a space to promote new audiovisual proposals.


The KINOKI International College Film Festival is looking for films and videos with a maximum duration of 22 minutes. However, the selection committee reserves the right to accept films and videos of longer duration in exceptional cases.
