Heliopolis

#
Director: Ahmad Abdalla.
The name in Arabic: Masr El Gedida is a pun, because, as mentioned above, it can be translated into: “New Egypt” and that's what the whole film is about: it tracks the story of five modern Egyptian youths in the course of one night. They are all spending their afternoon/ evening struggling to achieve something before the day ends, and they all fail to make any achievements. All their day's work ends up without being done, but with a vague promise to have it done the next day. This makes all the main characters do - for the next day - almost the same things they did during the day we're shedding light on in this film.

Eye of the Sun

#
Director: Ibrahim El Batout.
From once being the capital of Egypt during the Pharaonic era and a sacred location marked by the visit of Jesus and the Virgin Mary, Ein Shams has become one of Cairo’s poorest and most neglected neighbourhoods. Through the eyes of Shams, an eleven year old girl inhabitant of this neighbourhood, the film captures the sadness and magic that envelops everyday life in Egypt. In a series of heart-rending events, the diverse characters of the film showcase the intricacies of Egypt’s political system and social structure, and give a glimpse into the grievances of the Middle East region and the complex relationships of its nations.

Minia International Animation Festival

Chashama Film Festival

In our quest for a vision we ask ourselves this: If we blended the continents into one entity, what would the ramifications be? If borders were porous, allowing through a free exchange of inspiration, culture, political and religious ideas—what would it look like? Sound like? Feel like? We are here to explore all cultures and hope to show what drives them or where their influence comes from. Opening on October 22, 2009, the second annual chashama Film Festival aims to give us a taste of this global village with its 2009 festival, themed “Festival of the Worlds.” By screening films that voice diverse opinions and present international views, we hope to move us one step further from disassociation in the direction of a unified whole. Our goal is to not only push boundaries, but to erase them. The Festival of the Worlds will provide a forum for global expression, a place for filmmakers and audience members to cultivate a better understanding of their brothers and sisters of different origins. It is a platform for a spectrum of political , sociological and philosophical ideologies presented in an environment designed to foster creative and intellectual expansion. Our goal is to explore both the differences and the similarities of the international community in order to become a more educated population, one that is more capable of avoiding negative historical cycles and more willing to push us into a sustainable future. At last year’s festival, we screened 54 films out of 200+ submissions and reached an audieznce of approximately 500. The festival spanned three days, and included films from Egypt, Switzerland, Greece and the United States. Directors flew in from around the globe to be a part of our festival, and we were honored to give out 15 Victor Awards, 2 of which were audience selections and the rest awarded by deliberation of a panel of 5 judges. Last year’s theme was “Films that other festivals are afraid to show.” This year we are expanding that theme to formalize the global component: films that the world need to see. We expect this year’s festival to reach an audience of over 1000 people in venues that embrace today’s global nature, including museums and international theaters. The festival is designed to cultivate a community of filmmakers who can share, network, and help to build each other’s visions. At chashama, we believe that the art of film and the existence of uncensored, non-corporate media outlets are vital to an informed, compassionate and understanding population. We aim to break away from mass-media caricatures and portrayals of lifestyles that are incongruous with reality or void of critical analysis. What we look for is real feeling, real questions, real ideas. As New Yorkers, we feel it is our responsibility to be on the cutting edge of social and political change and a model for progressive ideas, in this case using film is our medium. At this time of widespread economic and political instability, when the world is breathing for change, for unification and for peace, we know our action is essential. Our action is art. We hope that you will join us in realizing our vision. Sociology In a large area to explore our schedule will be dictated through mirages of these categories.
