CNON.tv has partnered with international collaborators B.R.I.O. (Italy) and New Intelligentsia Online Cinemas (USA) to co-produce an online broadcast of films from the Intima Lente - Festival di Film Etnografici e d'Arte 2012. Eleven international films from this festival will show on CNON.tv from December 6-16, 2012.

These eleven international films feature the work of visual ethnographers who have chosen film and video as a medium to educate and share cultural traditions and customs with a global audience. The purpose of the Intimate Lens Ethnographic Film Festival is to profile cultural anthropology and field research in a way that offers viewers an opportunity to understand and experience diverse ways of life in a visually compelling way.
CNON.tv, B.R.I.O., and New Intelligentsia Online Cinemas are rolling out a collective social sharing campaign to take advantage of no-and-low cost social networking channels to create awareness and educate audience members about the festival and its films. This also represents an opportunity for filmmakers to interact, post, share and watch for information updates.
