Festival Cinema Invisible (FCI) is the only film festival in upstate New York that showcases films from Persian-speaking communities and beyond. FCI’s annual celebration brings together cinema enthusiasts and filmmakers to discover the best “invisible cinema” from around the globe.
This 6th edition of the FCI International Invisible Film Festival (FCI 2017) will present feature length documentaries, animated and short films selected from over 1,000 entries submitted by more than 80 different countries. Last year they brought 4 world premiers, 7 U.S. premiers and 16 regional premiers to the Electric City and we hope to bring even more this year!
Tickets are available at the Proctor’s Theater Box Office and website. Full festival passes are $40. Single-day passes are $25, individual session tickets are $10.
About Festival Cinema Invisible:
Festival Cinema Invisible (FCI) is an independent, not-for-profit venue dedicated to the celebration of Middle Eastern arts and cinema. FCI believes there are several characteristics that can make a film “invisible”- hidden themes, being subjected to censorship in its country of origin and/or forgotten or ignored subject matter (among others). As FCI President Mahmood Karimi-Hakak said, “What’s unique about FCI is that most of the films that are screened are not only world or US premiers, but have also never been screened officially in their home countries.”
