CINEMA
AT THE EDGE FESTIVAL
Santa Monica, California - USA
April 5 to 8, 2018

In the Spotlight today is the 6th Annual Cinema at the Edge Festival(CATE), celebrating independent films of all genres that feature a distinct vision, a unique voice, or a challenge to what is expected and accepted in the medium. Previous years at CATE featured audience favorites from Sundance, SXSW and other major festivals, while maintaining a focus on world or regional premieres, challenging films that deserve a second look and showcasing local artists.

Jury and Audience awards will be given to outstanding films in each category. All selected filmmakers will benefit from networking opportunities, packed screenings and the festival's signature pub crawl. CATE panels and juries have included executives at film distribution companies which have given filmmakers the opportunity to secure distribution.

Located in the heart of Santa Monica's Main Street minutes away from the beach and housed at the Edgemar Center for the Arts, a two screen theatre and art gallery complex designed by Frank Gehry, at Cinema at the Edge there is plenty to see and experience. At the center's inaugural ceremony Steven Spielberg welcomed cinema fans and noted, "Here we have a venue that can turn out some extremely experienced, daring and resourceful artists."
