CineAyiti International Film Festival, Cap-Haitien

Virtual keyboard solidarity alone will not sustain Haiti's recovery. Tangible projects are needed on the ground with medium and long-term focus.

The critics should not forget that the 60-year old Berlin International Film Festival started at a time when Germany was dotted with World War II rubble. The Sundance Film Festival started on a very modest footing.

The theme of the maiden edition of CineAyiti International Film Festival is “Cinema and National Recovery.”

Before the quake of 12 January 2010, Haiti had one film festival (Festival Film Jakmèl) on the Southern Corridor initiated by the respected Ciné Institute. There existed also a young but vibrant home video scene with inputs from the Haitians in the Diaspora (USA, Canada, UK, France).

This "CineAyiti International Film Festival" in Cap - Haitien on the Northern Corridor, seeks not  to only  complement the Southern Corridor event but also support the emergence of a diversified Haitian Audio Visual Industry after the quake of 12 January 2010.

Many film-making countries like the USA, UK, Canada, China, South Korea, Germany, France, South Africa or Nigeria have more than five different annual film festivals each.

Therefore, Haiti having two film festivals - the "Festival Film Jakmèl" on the South in Jacmel and "CineAyiti International Film Festival" on the North of the country in Cap-Haitien is a positive development and the winners will be the Haitian and international creative talents.

By submitting your film, getting your accreditation or becoming a patron ,you contribute towards the sustained concrete recovery of Haiti's motion pictures industry.

This morning we toured the "street schools" in the slums of Cite Soleil and surrounding areas, the poorest neighborhoods in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere; the schools sponsored by NPH International and Artists for Peace and Justice (APJ). Most were destroyed. The good news was that the quake hit just as school had let out, so nowhere near as many children were killed as we feared. Still, too many.

Brazil Film Fest

4 DAYS OF BRAZILIAN MULTICULTURALISM For more than 500 years, Brazil has been melting cultures, skin colours, races, traditions, tastes, flavours, histories and everything else into a very large and welcoming pot, and this year the hottest film festival in Toronto will bring this diversity to the Royal Theatre, at the heart of the vibrant and artistic Portuguese/Italian community in the central-west side of the city. Brazil and Canada have more in common than you can imagine. They are both relatively young nations where immigration played, and still plays! -- a very important role. Did you know that Brazil has the highest population of people of African descent outside the African continent? As with the Japanese community established there; it?s the biggest outside Japan. And there was also a time when there were more people speaking Italian on the streets of São Paulo than Portuguese, the official Brazilian language. Everywhere in Toronto, you can feel, see, hear and taste this same multicultural atmosphere. You can sit in a Vietnamese restaurant in the heart of the Caribbean area, reading a European newspaper and overhearing conversations in three or four different languages at the same time, while the radio plays songs from the Middle East... And this is why we decided to have Multiculturalism as our theme for this year, in our screenings as well as the business networking we promote during the festival. So come and celebrate with us the great and diverse Brazilian new wave of cinema. It's our third year and we will love to have you with us!

Denise Zmekhol, Brazilian Amazon Documentarist

[ Director’s Statement ] I traveled to the Brazilian Amazon on several occasions between 1987-1990 to assist on television documentaries. During my journeys, I had the opportunity to visit many Indig- enous communities, always with my camera by my side. What caught my eye were the children. Born to parents who had relied on the rainforest for their survival, these children were growing up surrounded by new ways—ways that were destroying the forest. I was also drawn to the child...
