However the part of the city we see is no tourist dream -- but a poverty stricken warren of side streets where the central figure, Umm Shooq, a charismatic possessed lady, and her two mod daughters live. When her youngest son falls seriously ill with a kidney condition and needs dialysis treatment --very expensive -- she is forced to beg on the streets to raise the money. When she...

Kathmandu International Mountain Film Festival (KIMFF) 2011

The 9th edition of Kathmandu International Mountain Film Festival will be held from 8-12 December 2011 in Kathmandu - the cultural and cosmopolitan capital of the Himalayan region. Since its birth in 2000, KIMFF has evolved from a festival focusing initially on the Himalaya to one encompassing a wide range of subjects and issues that explore the diverse and complex ways in which human beings relate to mountains. KIMFF seeks to showcase films that attract peer review and critiques that lead to better documentation of mountain issues, particularly of highland regions of the developing world.

 

About 50 films will be selected for KIMFF 2011. Around 15-20 documentaries will be shortlisted to be viewed by an international jury. Filmmakers can choose whether or not to submit their films for competition. Accepted films not selected for competition will be screened and be eligible for the Audience Award. Films made by Nepali filmmakers will have the opportunity to participate in ‘Nepal Panorama’, a separate showcase of Nepali entries. The objective of ‘Nepal Panoroma’ is to promote Nepali films in all genres.

 

KIMFF 2011 coincides with Nepal Tourism Year 2011. As part of this effort the festival will feature a special selection of films that have been instrumental in putting Nepal on the world tourism map. Films and activities that celebrate man's spirit for exploration and adventure, will also be part of this edition of the festival.

 

In the presence of filmmakers, film enthusiasts, critics, scholars, journalists, activists, and mountaineers, the festival will include discussion forums, on-demand screenings, guest lectures, exhibitions of books and photographs celebrating mountains and workshops for aspiring filmmakers.

The Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film Festival

In June 2011 the Balkans Beyond Borders Short Film Festival travels to Athens, where  the headquarters of the eponymous NGO organising the festival is based. This year, similar to last year, young artists from the Balkan region and beyond (Southeast Europe) up to the age of 30 are invited to create their own short films on a pre-defined subject. Entries are accepted from the 1st of November 2010 until the 31st of March 2011. This year’s edition will tackle the topical subject of crises, and aspiring artists will be invited to address the question of “Who’s afraid of the Big Bad Crises?”.

Crises have always been a reality in people’s lives and most of the time we are facing difficult situations which confront us to the different faces of crisis. But how do we define crises and what are we afraid of? Can crises serve as opportunities?

Film Festival News Break...Cairo, Egypt!

  I posted this article (below) back in October after having attended the screening of this documentary, Back Door Channels: The Price of Peace (2009), at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival 2010. In light of the recent controversy in Egypt and impinging further contention, I feel that this film could not have been released at a better time, nor can it be more relevant. A fellow filmmaker and Cairo native stated this in regards to the situation as is today: "The difference betwee...

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.
