The 20th edition of Cinerail, the International Railway Film Festival, will be celebrated during the first week of November 2013 in Paris. The corporate film presentation as well as the celebration ceremony for this anniversary will take place on Friday 8 November 2013 at UIC Paris Headquarters.

Cinerail is a unique event at global level entirely dedicated to films and audiovisual productions dealing with the railway world. It provides an opportunity to present an international public with a great diversity of films produced in all parts of the world which portray the atmosphere of train travel, stations, railway staff, etc. Since its creation in 1990 with the support of SNCF, UIC, RATP, Alstom, then UITP and a number of external partners, Cinerail was attended by several thousands of spectators and professionals from the railway or communications and film sectors as well as the general public fascinated by railway stories.

The objective is to present every year in a single location (currently Paris) a highly attractive selection of films, commercial films, long or short footage, TV documentaries, advertising films, TV spots, films on historic heritage…illustrating the world of railways as well as a selection of corporate films produced for railway companies.

At the closing of each Cinerail edition, awards are officially attributed to the best productions (evaluated by an international jury).
