Films like Gestacion by Esteban Ramirez and El Regreso by Hernan Jimenez, both Costa Rican filmmakers, exemplify the audiovisual talent present in the country, which motivates 80 fans to participate in the International Film and Video Festival San Jose 2011, from October 28th to November 7th.

The event will take place in the Variedades Movie Theater, La Aduana Cultural Complex and the Gomez Miralles Room of the Costa Rican Film Production Center.

Motivating the area of information and audiovisual formation through the implementation of workshops, conferences under the direction of renowned specialists and activities for the audiovisuals and the participating audience is the main objective of the Festival.

The origin of the activity arose thanks to the Costa Rican Film and Video Display, which for 19 years has tried to become that space where Costa Rican audiovisual creations gather in their different genres.

A total of 15 movies are presented by Central America and the Caribbean, which are participating in the category of feature films in the festival, from which six are Costa Rican, four Guatemalan and the rest of the productions are from Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Panama and Dominican Republic.

The Mexican Gustavo Montiel, the Colombians Gustavo Pazmin and Diana Vargas, the American Misha Maclaird and the Costa Ricans Antonio Yglesias and Ingo Niehaus are the professionals in charge of evaluating the work done by the contestants.

The price of the ticket to participate in the event is ¢1.500 (around $3), but if you would like to participate in the entire festival, the cost is ¢10.000 (around $20). Students and senior citizens with ID only pay ¢1.000 (around $2), while the functions of Wednesdays will be 2x1.
