Cinequest, one of the country’s most influential and fastest growing film festivals—not to mention the pride of San Jose—has announced pass holder and contributor programs for 2010. The festival starts in just 90 days, running from February 23 – March 7, 2010.

In an email to fans, friends and industry, Halfdan Hussey, co-founder and director of the 20 year old event, indicates that the programs are “greatly enhanced” for this year. There are seven contributor levels, ranging from $100 (Cinematographer) all the way to an all-access pass for $5000 (Maverick Mogul). Company 501(c)3 match programs are also available.
