Gather like-minded people creating a network of actively engaged citizens who hold high the value of individual’s freedom.
Who we are
Passion for Freedom is a non-governmental and voluntary organization gathering professionals working in arts and media. Our first edition of non-profit Festival took place in 2009 in London. The annual celebration of Freedom takes place in a spacious, contemporary gallery next to the Tate Modern. Last year’s edition showcased artists from 12 different countries carefully selected from hundreds of applications.
Passion for Freedom gives a unique opportunity for artists to openly debate and exercise freedom of speech.
We feel disgusted by the suppression of women and the many-sided attack on our Freedom.
FREEDOM OF WOMEN. FREEDOM OF SPEECH.
PROTECTING IT WHERE IT EXISTS. PROMOTING IT WHERE IT DOESN’T.
Passion for Freedom uses the universal language of art to strengthen humanistic values for the benefit of our societies.

Another eXperiment by Women Film Festival (AXW for short) gives women's work a real time & space in New York City.
AXW promotes and screens moving images in any media, made by women, that encourage critical thinking and dialogue.
Experimental Short Films are provocative, exciting, spontaneous, and sometimes forbidden, but unfortunately, they’re somewhat unknown. So we’ve opened the doors of the AXW/online web site where the Festivals can be seen 24/7/365: http://AXWonline.com

Erarta MOTION PICTURES. International Festival of Short Movie about Painting
Film about painting. Film as painting.
Erarta Museum (Saint-Petersburg, Russia) is presenting its consecutive annual project - the international festival of short Films about painting, Erarta MOTION PICTURES.
The festival focuses on short films from all over the world dedicated to painting, painters, art institutions, general and specific topics related to those subjects. Special emphasis is given to works of cinema that use painting as the central method in creating form and content.
The connection between painting and film is particularly close and cognate. Painting is justly considered the forefather of cinema, and the visual forms the basis of both art forms. With this in mind, film is also capable of making pictures move, opening new horizons, ways of interaction and mutual enrichment of those neighboring cultural territories.
Cinema grew out of painting, inheriting its experience, traditions and skills. Now it has matured, and is ready to pay its debt to its progenitor.
Discovering for itself a new visual dominant in cinema, the Erarta MOTION PICTURES festival is ready to prove that cinema is indeed the painting of the contemporary day, enriched both technologically and philosophically. Painting that was set in motion and given a new life.
Level Ground uses art to create safe space for dialogue about faith, gender, and sexuality. Our hope is to cultivate a better way of speaking with one another across our differences and disagreements. Level Ground is becoming a national innovator in film festival programming, art curation, and dialogue.
The Fling! Film festival is an event that showcases the work of young film makers from across the world and the best in cinema. The festival is held in the idyllic scenery of Tain in the Scottish Highlands. Hundreds of people participated in the workshops and came to watch the shorts and feature films. We considered 2014 a resounding success and aim to build on this for 2015.
Last year’s event successfully took place on the 4th and 5th of October at the Duthac Centre, Tain. Fling! showcased eight feature films and included an early presentation of The Maze Runner, the beautiful I Believe in Unicorns and many other great films.
We also selected eighteen short pictures made by young people under the age of 25. These have been selected as part of a competition which saw Fling’s organisers receive 661 entries from 69 countries. As part of the programme we also run film-making workshops.
For the 2015 festival we are looking to expand the event to encompass more short films and a competitive feature element.
