Cinequest 30th to celebrate the real revolutionaries, the Mavericks

user
In the past year, our country increased its national debt by $1.9 trillion, including $245 billion in bailout funds as part of a greater effort to create change. Conversely, Cinequest, a company that has stayed in the black since inception, spent less than $2 million to create change by empowering the artistic revolutionaries of our time: the Mavericks, those who astound, electrify, inspire, laugh, pioneer—and in turn create rippling effects throughout the world. The 20th Anniversary Cinequest...

All Eyes Turn To Tallinn

  In the year-round film festival circuit, a roundelay of more than 2000 individual film events held in almost every corner of the globe, one moves as if part of a gypsy caravan, lingering in one place before taking up stakes for the next location. For me, it is a lateral move across Europe from Amsterdam, where I have been attending the IDFA International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam to Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, and the host of the 13th annual POFF, Tallinn Black Nights F...

How Long Winter Lasts in Romania

Director: Iris Ponkina.
"HOW LONG WINTER LASTS IN ROMANIA" is an observational travelogue through contemporary romanian cities and countryside in the wintertime. Fragments of "Mioritza", the romanian national ballade intermingles with Jonas Mekas poetic visions. Romania, a land of contrasts, on the promising doorstep of European Union still seems to be in a state of post-communist syndrome. Romania's resemblance to Lithuania intrigues questions and skepticism. Winter as a metaphor is I.Ponkina's debut short film.
