A promoter of independent films, Cinequest organizes this event in Silicon Valley every year. A prestigious film festival, it stands out for its commendable efforts to encourage mavericks in their efforts to create works with different views and techniques. Since its inception in 1990, the festival has gained many accolades from budding filmmakers to seasoned pros. Some of the works that have participated in the festival have also won Oscar nominations. Films can now be watched online, while volunteer and intern positions are always open. Viewers are also encouraged to send in meritorious works - those that stir the soul.
