The TASTE AWARDS are the premier awards celebrating the year's best in Food, Fashion, and Lifestyle programs on Television, in Film, Online, and on Radio.
The Lumière Award was created to celebrate a filmmaker, in Lyon, the very place where the cinematograph was invented by Louis and Auguste Lumière, and where they shot their first film, Workers Leaving the Factory, in 1895. Because we must express our appreciation to the directors and artists of the cinema who fill our lives, the Lumière Award is a distinction reflecting time, gratitude, and admiration. Awarded by Bertrand Tavernier, Thierry Frémaux and the Institut Lumière team, one filmmaker receives each year in October the Lumière Award for his filmography, for his intense passion for the cinema that nourishes his work, finally, for his fundamental contribution to cinema.

Seen & Heard was launched in Sydney in 2009 as a non-profit film festival by Lucy Randall with the view to promote women’s filmmaking and bring to light industry prejudices that may not be so clear to the consumer.
At that time, a woman had never won an Academy Award for Best Director (and only three females had ever been nominated in the entire history of The Oscars). Nobody talked about the absence of women in production roles in mainstream media.
Female filmmakers, particularly in Australia, have long campaigned for their place in film as activists and as film collectives. Over the course of the festival's lifetime, both industry and media are slowly sitting up and taking more notice of these issues too. It is clear, though, that wider cultural change remains a distant goal.
According to the Center for the Study of Women in Television & Film,
"Women comprised 16% of all directors, executive producers, producers, writers, cinematographers, and editors working on the top 250 (U.S.) grossing films of 2013. This figure represents a decrease of two percentage points from 2012.
In 2013, women accounted for 6% of (U.S.) directors. If foreign films in the top 250 are included, this figure increases to 8%. In other roles, women comprised 10% of writers, 15% of executive producers, 25% of producers, 17% of editors, and 3% of cinematographers."
The dramatic under-representation of female filmmakers inevitably leads to a dearth in solid female characterisation as well. Female characters remained dramatically under-represented as protagonists, major characters, and speaking (major and minor) characters in the top grossing films of 2013. Again, the Center for the Study of Women in Television & Film reveals in their most recent report:
"On-screen female presence remains abysmal. In 2013, females accounted for 15% of protagonists, 29% of major characters, and 30% of all speaking characters. Female characters were younger than their male counterparts and were more likely than males to have an identifiable marital status. Further, female characters were less likely than males to have clearly identifiable goals or be portrayed as leaders of any kind."
Further disadvantages in the film industry exist for women of colour, non-cis women, queer women, women from low-income backgrounds, and women with disabilities.
It is not hard to see that the lack of any type of women in the film industry is an impoverishment to our culture, one that can only be rectified once we recognise that the dramatic under-representation of women amongst both cast & crew is a problem.
For the first time this year, Melbourne audiences are invited to join us in taking that small, but necessary, step towards female filmmakers being both Seen & Heard. We promote the message that films made by women are not just for women: they are wonderfully rich films that should be seen by everyone. Trust us, you're in for an exciting program of films that are as diverse as they are visually stunning.
We look forward to seeing you at ACMI from November 13 - 16.
L’Europe autour de l’Europe is a month-long festival of art and author film from countries throughout Europe, held in Paris since 2006. The Festival presents both contemporary films and classics, films that formed the bedrock of the national cinemas of the Greater Europe.
The festival shows feature films, documentaries, shorts, animations, new media and experimental films. Nine recently produced films (unreleased in France) compete for the Prix Sauvage – a statuette of a dancing wolf and money award, given by the jury composed of the eminent European film artists and professionals (Krzysztof Zanussi, Pierre-Henri Deleau, Bob Swaim, Jean Douchet, Jean-François Lepetit ...) for the best film as a work of art. With the ambition to stimulate the renewal of the European film production and emerging European talents, the Festival places professional encounters in the heart of its politics. In addition to screenings, it presents master classes and panel discussions with filmmakers and prestigious guests from throughout Europe: Henning Carlsen, Neil Jordan, Jonas Mekas, Marta Meszaroz, Kira Muratova, Stephen Rea, Pierre Rissient, Sergey Selyanov, Jim Sheridan, Jos Stelling, Istvan Szabo, Jan Troell, Agnès Varda were among the guests.
10th edition will take place from March 16 to April 15, 2015. Our call for entry is open until December 15, 2014.
