CICLOPE Festival (www.ciclopefestival.com) is the international event fully dedicated to the “craft” in moving image. In the last few years, it has become a platform for directors, creatives, artists, producers, digital creatives and clients to share knowledge, be inspired and celebrate the best work.
Unlike advertising festivals, CICLOPE Festival focuses on the art of execution, rather than the ideas. Whether it’s a TV commercial, a mobile app or an interactive installation, we truly believe a good execution is as important as the idea, and extremely determinant for the consumer’s experience.
Annually held since 2010, CICLOPE Festival gathers world top-notch professionals to share their ideas and know how, to discuss the main issues of the business, to celebrate the best work and to network with colleagues and clients. Because of the high level of people attending and its friendly reputation, many agree that CICLOPE Festival is the best event for effective and enjoyable networking.
A conference and an award show merge in a two-day event full of professional contents and a lot of activities. The Conference offers inspiring talks and case studies, enriching seminars and workshops. The award show (CICLOPE Awards) is an outstanding showcase and celebration of the very best of the year in different categories such as Direction, 3D Animation, Visual Effects, Interactive Commercials and Original Music, among others.
After an online judging session, the jury personally attends the festival to watch and discuss the best work according to their level of excellence and giving away only one bronze, one silver and one gold award in each category. All the winning pieces are announced -and the golden awards winners are showcased- during the awards ceremony.
In 2013, after three years in Buenos Aires, CICLOPE Festival moved to Berlin (Germany), one of the most exciting cities in the world, where it takes place nowadays. Two years later, after a sold out edition, CICLOPE Festival organized an international tour across some of the most important markets in the world, showcasing the winning works and providing a unique platform for professionals working in broadcast production to learn, be inspired and network.
At the moment, CICLOPE Festival has three regional legs: CICLOPE Latino, CICLOPE Africa and CICLOPE Asia.
