Notodofilmfest is a film festival born in 2001 with a vocation to support young audiovisual creators and provide a showcase for them using a new medium, Internet. It also broke down barriers in film production and distribution.
Notodofilmfest.com is an initiative of La Fábrica based on Javier Fesser’s original idea: a festival that puts Internet at the service of cinema as a formula for discovering new talent in order to experiment with a new medium within the reach of everyone and achieve a very wide dissemination.
