Cinevision is a festival aimed to help independent filmmakers showcase their talents to the community and abroad. This year the festival will now transition into a live stream where online festivals will be held via the Twitch platform. This will create not only a broader audience for chosen films but also create new opportunities. And to also give a more intimate engagement to the audience where they can enjoy great films in the comfort of their homes.

Cinevision has always been about getting a community together. To discover and expose talents to the world that otherwise would be lost. And to highlight filmmakers that choose to make their work different and exciting while at the same time giving opportunity to show their passions.

Cinevision events will take place on its Twitch channel,

The following awards will be given during the Cinevision Film Festival:
Best Narrative
Best Documentary
Best Student Film
