What’s It All About?

Cinequest Film Festival (CQFF) is held every year in San Jose/Silicon Valley. Set in the home of the world’s most influential media technology companies, CQFF showcases premier films, renowned and emerging artists and breakthrough technology – empowering global connectivity between creators, innovators and audiences.

CQFF’s blend of the artist and innovator gains focus through its Maverick Awards. Its Maverick Spirit Award recognises artists (Harrison Ford, JJ Abrams, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Ben Kingsley, Kevin Spacey and Sir Ian McKellen are among the guest recipients). Its Maverick Innovator Award recognises technologists (including Martin Cooper, father of the cell phone). A ‘Maverick’ stands apart from the crowd, willing to create and innovate from a place of personal yet global vision.
