CineCapsule, the first interactive platform for independent cinema, launches its own film festival. The event takes place in Paris, at the Espace Voltaire in the 11th arrondissement. CineCapsule aims to highlight independent video productions to promote new artists and discover new talents.

We will find three themes, different each quarter:

- Eternal Circle: "Nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is transformed". (Lavoisier)
- I Don't Wanna Be Me Anymore: From Shadow to Light
- Same Love: "Loving is half the battle of believing." (Hugo)

The award will be given through public voting. Our selection will be shown on our platform to a public of producers, festival owners, cinema-lovers and filmmakers.

The film that will get the most votes from the public will be broadcasted online on our platform for 1 month and will also be shown during the event in Paris, at the Espace Voltaire, in front of many artists, filmmakers and cinema-enthusiasts.
