Welcome to the Carmel International Film Festival 2017


Creativity comes in many flavors, and while it is always a sweet treat for the soul, the preference is often unique and individualized.  As human nature would have it, we all have a comfort zone where we happily indulge in the familiar and the tried and true, but what happens when we are challenged to try something new – to expand the palate beyond the usual and open up our taste buds to something extraordinary? That is the essence of independent film – a leap of faith that we, as an audience, make with a filmmaker to discover something new about our world and about ourselves. It is an exciting trip and generally speaking one scoop is never enough! Welcome to the Carmel International Film festival 2017. Enjoy!
