HP has partnered with Cinequest for the second year in a row to sponsor the 2011 Cinequest Film Festival. Held from March 1-13, the annual Cinequest Film Festival in San Jose, CA empowers mavericks through the creation and discovery of cinematic art and innovation, plus the connection of artists, innovators, movie lovers and students.

The dynamic 13-day event, which includes over 250 international films, 75 U.S., North American and world premieres, and represents 41 countries, expects 90,000 people in attendance this year.

VIP Lounge

This year’s festival will include an HP-hosted VIP Lounge in downtown San Jose and closing night party, and will feature various HP technology experience areas throughout festival grounds, including HP TouchS

mart PCs, notebooks, digital signage, workstations, ePrint printers, HP Beats premium audio and more.

“HP and Cinequest are collaborating to celebrate the unique relationship between content producers and film fans around the world, highlighting the spirit of filmmakers, designers, artists, directors and enthusiasts,” and said Carlos Montalvo, vice president, Innovation Program Office, Personal Systems Group, HP. “This year’s event will showcase how these individuals can use HP technology to pursue their personal and professional passions.”

HP Power Real Time Information at Cinequest

This year, HP will deploy a network of more than 15 HP LD4200 and 2310e Digital Signage Displays, powered by HP SignagePlayer mp8000s media players, throughout the festival. The digital signs will display real-time information on film screening schedules, Twitter activity from event attendees via TweetRiver, news feeds about the festival and live event photos.

HP and Cinequest will also encourage film viewers to take a touch-enabled, interactive

film survey using the HP TouchSmart PCs that will aggregate and display live audience review data.
