Finding The Normal In Amsterdam???

user
    Amsterdam has a rather valid reputation as a refuge for the not completely normal. Misfits from across the continent and across the seas find the city's open nature and history of tolerance a welcoming invitation. So, when an Amsterdam institution like IDFA, the International Documentary Festival Amsterdam, announces a program entitled "Not Normal", the mind only boggles. In fact, one of the key themes at this year's Festival is the theme of unconventionality ...

If he fights the order, it could take several months for the case to get through Swiss courts.

Warrambeen Film Festival

The Warrambeen Film Festival is a new event developed in response to an identified need to preserve regional stories and history whilst also filling a gap in family friendly arts events on the rural calendar. The festival is a daylong event occurring on the 13th of March 2010 which will incorporate a competitive short film screening, live music and acts as well as a food and wine festival component showcasing the produce of the region. Warrambeen is 1.5hrs west of Melbourne between Geelong, Ballarat and Colac.

The motivation behind this event has always been about reinvesting into the community financially and artistically while preserving its history and engaging new audiences. With the eventual and inevitable loss of word of mouth story telling we believe that film, and especially the short film format, can bridge that gap which has formed and preserve our colourful stories and histories by committing them to film.

With the central theme of regional stories for regional audiences, the festival will select films to be screened with this core idea in mind, although all films will be considered and judged on merit. Furthermore, each year, the festival produces a ‘headline film’ concerning some facet of the immediate regions history, stories, or even based on a good yarn synonymous with the area.

Some fantasic prizes to be announced very soon!

Check out www.warrambeenfilmfestival.com.au and follow the links to submit your films while the early bird offer is still available.
