Purgatory V Film Exhibition - A Cinematic Exploration of the Soul

purgatory / noun / an intermediate place or state of temporary suffering for expiatory purification

+ NOW ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS +

Within the word “purgatory”, it is easy to envision condemned souls, torment and darkness. However, purgatory may also reflect the cyclic state in which we often rediscover or recreate ourselves anew from within our personal inflictions. Sometimes it is the necessary stage to exorcise ourselves from the haunting ghosts of the past. Perhaps it is the serene place of self reflection and realization.

From within this, the DAMNED Exhibition of Enlightened Darkness proudly presents an exhibition of powerful cinema called Purgatory – A Cinematic Exploration of the Soul.  Held on March 13th & 14th 2015 at Detroit’s Tangent Gallery, Purgatory will present approximately 90 minutes of short films of introspective, emotive and/or enlightened subject matters from filmmakers worldwide.  This is not an industry-focused film festival, but a tributary showcase of the often redemptive films from the filmmaker’s personal collections.

NOW FEATURING…THE PURGATORY BAZAAR – Come in early before the show and visit the Purgatory Bazaar featuring over a dozen local artists from the DAMNED Exhibition selling their own original art, prints and merchandise.  Help support local artists!

Admission is $10 ($5 matinee Sat at 5pm), which includes a coupon for $5 off any $25+ purchase in the bazaar and free popcorn.  This event is 18+ due to mature film and art content.  A cash bar is also present for alcoholic and non-alcoholic pleasures.

Animal Film Festival

In its second year, Animal Film Festival (AFF) is the only global fest of its kind, seeking specifically animal-themed films in every category. AFF is held at a beautiful and state of the art theater in the heart of the Sierra Nevada foothills in Grass Valley, California. AFF kicks off with an invitation only party the night before the fest - serving delicious catered vegan food and beverages. Filmmakers are provided with free lodging (as available) and VIP treatment throughout the fest. Audience discussions follow films where the filmmakers are present. Each filmmaker receives a gift bag loaded with animal friendly products. Best of all, the films screened at Animal Film Festival go far in changing people's minds and treatment of animals. This is a win win for our audience and animals.

AFF seeks films that bring awareness about the realities animals face in the world today. The stories showcased in documentary, scripted, feature and short films will be engaging, funny, edgy, beautiful and inspirational. The festival seeks to explore topics about companion animals, wildlife, animals in entertainment, farming, and laboratories. We are looking for films that highlight ways our society celebrates our relationships with non humans, as well as films showing the ways we mistreat them. Animal Film Festival aims to not only entertain audiences but to propel people into action to change their own lives as well as the animals effected.

Awards & Prizes

Awards are given in the categories of Feature, Short and Student. The awards last year included a framed certificate listing the filmmaker(s) and the title of their film/category. Each filmmaker also received a gift bag filled with animal friendly products.

Reel Indie Film Fest (RiFF)

A key music world calendar event, Indie Week is embracing sight and sound with a companion program – the Reel Indie Film Festival.

The second edition of the festival takes place October 14th – 19th, 2014 in Toronto, a filmmaker’s mecca and media launchpad for some of the industry’s brightest young talent. This year the festival grows to include 2 more features, shorts and music videos.

RiFF seeks to cover the gamut of musical inspiration, from the teenage dream of following in the footsteps of the Rolling Stones, to using music as a platform for one’s thoughts and beliefs. Films that make us think, that move us, and that capture the essence of a band or song.

Green-Go Short Film Contest

IV. Green-Go Short Film Contest

 

Do you want to follow the path of David Attenborough and change the world from the large screen with your creative thoughts?

 

If YES, then

 

SHOOT A WINNING SHORT FILM!

 

The organisers of Green-Go Short Film Contest are waiting for your creative/shocking/funny/explicit eye-opener short films in the following three categories:

 

·         Nature works for us!

Costumer service, car service, ecosystem service?! Indeed, nature works for us!  Without trees, we would not breathe, without wetlands and forests, we would not have clean water, without microorganisms, we would not have fertile soil and food. Beside our basic needs, nature keeps us healthy and happy – we go outside to do sports, we buy our houses close to green spaces and we go to nature during holidays.  Nature is also the base of our economy – it gives us jobs and provides the living for many – farmers, fishermen, gardeners, park rangers, tour guides, even industries.

 

Show us how nature works for us all or what would happen without the services of nature!

 

·         Feeding the world sustainably – Celebrating the International Year of Family Farming

50% chance your morning ham and eggs and milk are from a family farm. In the world, there are 500 million family farms, where agriculture activities are managed and done by a family. 70% of the world’s food production is provided by these farmers and small-scale fishermen, who safeguard biodiversity, traditional knowledge and techniques. They also provide the livelihoods for many as in developing countries out of the 3 billion rural people 2,5 belong to families engaged in Family Farming[1].

Show the importance of family farms, small-scale agriculture, traditional knowledge, and the need for more sustainable agriculture and more responsible consumers’ choice!

·         Fighting climate change and disasters with natural solutions

A global warming of 4°C could happen as early as the 2060s[2], whereas natural disasters and extreme weather will be in the rise increasing death tolls and economic losses. We have to get prepared, adapt and mitigate these impacts.

Our best weapon against climate change and its impacts is nature. 15% of the world’s terrestrial carbon stock - 312 gigatonnes - are stored in protected areas around the world. Nature also serves as buffers against disasters, providing space for floodwaters to disperse, stabilizing soil against landslides and blocking storm surges. It has been estimated that coastal wetlands in the United States provide $23.2 billion a year in protection against flooding from hurricanes.[3] But we can think in a smaller scale – only planting one tree can serve the cooling effect of 10 air-conditioners, using traditional local breeds in agriculture can result in more resilient yields, only planning a few hectares of green space in the city can reduce flood and heat islands – along with it health – risks.

 

Show how climate change threatens us, how we can fight climate change with simple, natural solutions and what existing solutions there are in the world already.

Black & White - International Audiovisual Festival

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.
