In May Porto opens its doors to the monochromatic aesthetics. The Black & White - International Audiovisual Festival, which receives video, audio and photographs in black and white, will take into competition works from all over the world.
With unique worldwide characteristics this initiative grew from the need to answer to the audience's growing sensitivity to black & white specificity, leaving behind the prejudice that relates this aesthetics with works of early cinema.
But the festival shows more than videos and photos in two colours, it also encourages the creation of sound environments referring to the black and white.
Over four days, several activities related to the audiovisual world will be carried out in addition to the competitions: artist talks, screenings and extensions from other international festivals. The nights will also be exciting with a broad cultural program.
International Film Festival of Prayag, is going to start its journey with the support of cine lovers across the world. The festival has been started by the persons having long associations with the industry under the ages of Z&Z MEDIA PVT LTD, a media production house based in Delhi, which is continuously working in this field from past 15 years. Short films have emerged as a universal experimental platform for both professional and amateur film makers alike. With proliferation of high quality digital technology at relatively low prices, every film enthusiast wants to embark on film making and short films are the first stepping stone in that effort. The IFFP 2015 is going to be a unique event because of its quality and excellence and undoubtedly for the place that we have decided- Allahabad,India
Allahabad ,also known as Prayag ,is a city in the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh and the administrative headquarters of the Allahabad District. As of 2013, Allahabad is the seventh most-populous city in the state and the thirty-sixth most-populous city in India, with an estimated population of 5.11 million in the city and 1.21 million in its metropolitan region. In 2011, it was ranked the world's 130th fastest-growing city. The city's original name – Prayaga, or "Place of Offerings" – comes from its position at the union of the Ganges, Yamuna and Sarasvati Rivers called “SANGAM”, It is the second-oldest city in India, and plays a central role in Hindu scriptures. Allahabad has hosted cultural and sporting events, including Kumbh Mela and the Indira Marathon. Although the city's economy was built on tourism, most of its income now derives from real estate and financial services. Film Stars like Amitabh Bachan, , Anubhav Sinha, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Shubha Mudgal, Jaddanbai ,Nargis etc also belong to Allahabad we hope it would be a great place to organize a film festival. The city has best connectivity of Airport and Railway so there would be no problem of transportation from any part of the world.
