San Jose, CA--The 23rd Annual Cinequest Film Festival came to a close on Sunday, Mar. 10th with encore screenings of the jury and audience award winning films, announced the previous evening at the Closing Film and Awards ceremony, and other festival favorites. Recognized as one of the world's top 10 festivals, Cinequest hosted screenings and events Feb. 26-Mar. 10 in downtown San Jose at Camera 12 Cinema, SJ Repertory, and the California Theater, smashing all previous records for film submissions, attendance and box office sales.

Sally Potter's Ginger & Rosa, a provocative drama about inseparable best friends growing up during the Cold War in early 1960s America, kicked off the festival at the California Theater on February 26th. Deepa Mehta's Midnight's Children, based on Salman Rushdie's epic novel about about two children born simultaneously in 1947 as India declares its independence from Great Britain, was the closing night film, also at the California Theater, on March 9th.

Featured celebrity guests included Maverick Award recipients, actor Harrison Ford (best known for the original Star Wars trilogy, and the the Indiana Jones movies), controversial author Salman Rushdie (screenwriter for the closing night film, Midnight's Children), and celebrity chef Dominique Crenn.
