Transforming Stories International Christian Film Festival

One week festival throughout South Africa and countries worldwide. The purpose of the festival is to showcase powerful, inspiring, faithaffirming, evangelistic, transforming stories in the form of film to the world and the Body of Christ in every nation. We want to emphasize how the power of storytelling can impact the lives of people and shape a specific culture. To accomplish this we are willing to identify and reward talent that is of the highest standards. The festival will be presented in two forms, in host countries around the world and in selected movie theatres throughout South Africa. The award ceremony will take place in South Africa during September 2011 where winning films will be announced.The power of media is evident in this day and age, and movies have been a huge part of shaping the culture as we know it. BehindTransforming Stories International Christian Film Festival 2011 (TSICFF 2011) is a greater vision to transform cultures through storytelling and inspire people to make use of films in sharing the Gospel to all mankind.No longer will we as followers of Christ allow our world to be poisoned with profanity by media elites. Instead, we are encouraging revolutionaries out there to produce stories which can transform our culture into one that will be in line with The Kingdom of God (Yahweh),one of Justice, Peace, Righteousness and Love. TSICFF is looking for films that effectively illustrate stories of transformation by the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ; or true life testimonies of both spiritual and physical transformation by God’s power and intervention; or Biblical truths leading viewers to a clearer understanding of certain issues and topics.What makes this festival so unique is that it was launched in 2010 in South Africa through the partnership and association with the Lausanne movement, where over 4500 International Christian leaders from over 200 regions in the world were introduced to the festival. This opportunity has established great relationships to ensure future growth of the festival. Through our continuous efforts and with a truly global reach the festival aims to inspire Christian leaders to make use of films to evangelize, teach & transform their communities. This festival sources films from across the globe and then the same film festival program is presented in different host nations around the world. This festival has also been endorsed by a selection of internationally recognized leaders and role players.TSICFF is not only a film festival, its part of a global revolution encouraging film makers to produce films that will transform communities for the good!We encourage all to mobilize their churches, ministries and communities to support this festival!

Kaunas International Film Festival

Organisation

The organisation „Visos mūzos“ has established Kaunas International Film Festival (Kaunas IFF) in 2007 as a public act seeking to draw attention of audiences and decision makers towards homogenization of film culture in Lithuania and seeking to save the oldest cinema theater in Lithuania. The event during the years developed into a real celebration of film art.

Festival

Today, Kaunas IFF is one of Lithuania’s most appreciated film festivals and the main film event in Kaunas. It presents films which have been acclaimed worldwide and also looks for new discoveries. The main priority of Kaunas IFF is a combination of the artistic and social statements in film. The festival continues its strategy to present exclusively Lithuanian or Baltic premiers. 5th edition, September 27 - October 9, 2011 includes:
 feature films in the Wide Angle, Identity sections.
 Mainly documentaries in “Music Moves the world”, “All the Muses” sections, and selection of 
short films, animations and retrospectives in side-bars
. Kaunas IFF is the official festival and distribution partner of the innovative network „Eye on Films“, supported by MEDIA Mundus, a member of the CICAE network, and the Lithuanian representative organisation in the European Network of Young Cinema – Nisi Masa.

Distribution

In 2010 Kaunas IFF started theatrical distribution in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. While major distributors in the Baltic countries mainly present Hollywood studio productions and mainstream 3D films, Kaunas International Film Festival seeks to make space for art-house films in cinemas. The idea is to influence and change the theatrical distribution situation in the Baltic countries by increasing the number of art-house films in the regular cinema repertoire. Kaunas IFF believes in strengthening the film industry by art-house film promotion and distribution.

Objectives

The central objective for Kaunas IFF is to enhance film culture and film industry in Lithuania and to represent Lithuanian film industry for film professionals worldwide. Festival celebrates art-house filmmaking. An important part of the film culture revival in Lithuania is presenting retrospective programmes combined with panel discussions, master-classes, special lectures as part of film education.
