Cinema at the Edge Independent Film Festival (CATE) Returns to Santa Monica


Once again the Cinema at the Edge Independent Film Festival (CATE) will celebrate a selection of innovative films from around the world that “push industry boundaries and explore cutting-edge cinema.” Founded in 2013 and organized by Michelle Danner and Alexandra Guanieri, the event is a recent addition to the vibrant Los Angeles arts and film scene and has become known for exposing filmmakers’ works to a wider audience and providing them additional opportunities for global distribution.

This year the four-day event will feature over 50 narrative feature, documentary and short films, as well as “…opening and closing night parties, an aware ceremony and a series of panels with an emphasis on the filmmaking process.” From my review of the festival schedule, it’s evident that Danner, Guanieri and their team have put together an exciting program that is sure to please a wide range of film enthusiasts. You’ll find program and ticket information below.
