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.

Cardora Film Festival Aims
We are looking for charming, intriguing and intelligent stories or some kind of vignette or tableau vivant (about 1-2 mins long) with high production values. Winning and qualifying movies will be added to the catalogue for Cardora Moviecards.
Cardora Moviecards is an online personalized movie-greeting card service offering high quality, charming and beautiful story-driven micro-movies for adults and children.
The Cardora Film Festival is non-exclusive and you can submit films from your back catalogue and which have already been on the web or in other film festivals. You can also submit as many movies as you like for consideration and we will happily accept all and any films that meet the simple requirements of quality in our Rules and Terms of Entry.
Cardora Moviecards can be sent by the filmmakers to promote their work and by Cardora subscribers. If enough subscribers send your movie (as part of a moviecard), you will get a share of the revenue generated from sending the moviecards that include your movie.You can use this money to make more movies!
You can enter any movie that you have ever made! It just needs to be in a format that can be shown on the web and you have to hold all the rights to the picture and sound. You can even re-edit movies in your catalogue to fit the time requirement of Cardora. (Please no ads or commercials.)
Cardora can help you build your audience in preparation for crowdfunding and traditional finance raising and help with packaging by attracting talent. A potentially very large audience could see your work and it could go viral.
We would like moviemakers to pay careful attention to the sound quality of their films as this is necessary for films which are going to reach a wide audience.
We will accept movies from filmmakers anywhere in the world and in any language or no language at all, but for the moment, if there is dialogue in a language other than English, please offer a version that includes sub-titles. Films can be live action or animation or a mixture.
Cardora is non-exclusive so it is OK if your film is on Youtube, Vimeo or any website or has been seen by the public before.
The Cardora Film Festival has four main goals:
1) We want to encourage the making of high quality, intelligent, charming and uplifting movies, starting with micro-movies (around 1 - 2 minutes long).
2) We have developed a viral platform so that your film has the potential to be seen by a much larger number of people than any normal festival.
3) Thanks to the viral platform your film can actually generate a revenue stream for you, and
4) Help you build a fanbase for your work which will help you with crowdfunding and finding backers and talent for larger films.

It's only Brooklyn when you count every neighborhood and every community.
We founded the Art of Brooklyn Film Festival (AoBFF) in 2011 because Brooklyn needs a major independent film festival. While there are several niche festivals in our borough, they're based around individual neighborhoods and are limited in scope. Founded and run by Brooklyn-born and based working artists, the AoBFFcreates the first large-scale, borough-wide platform for independent film.
The AoBFF is the only independent, international film festival built entirely around Brooklyn, a local independent scene with global influence. We focus on Brooklyn‐born, Brooklyn-based and Brooklyn-centric films and filmmakers and we screen work from all over the world whose creators live, work in, or are inspired by Brooklyn's indie film scene.
We conceived the AoBFF as a festival that speaks to Brooklyn as a whole, where many demographics overlap. We bring the new, artist-centric Brooklyn community together with "Classic Brooklyn" – natives and immigrant communities at a single event. We are as diverse, vital and international as the borough itself. And everyone is invited to our party.
Films are screened at 300-seat Founders Hall Theater at St. Francis College in Brooklyn Heights, 300-seat Kumble Theater at LIU Brooklyn and select locations around the borough.
The AoBFF is the only festival in Brooklyn to screen films as part of ExChange, a network of film festivals in the US and Europe. This exclusive partnership gives our filmmakers a chance to screen at RxSM Film Expo in Austin, TX.
ABOUT THE ART OF BROOKLYN
The Art of Brooklyn is a not-for-profit organization that curates a conversation between the new, Brooklyn-based art community, immigrants, transplants and those born and raised in the borough.

Tomorrow we will see - "Changes"
Through film, art, and gender studies, Imperfectu: International Film and Gender Festival celebrates and examines the diversity of gender identities and expressions, as well as of sexual identities and orientations, while embracing varied and alternative feminisms.
Imperfectu explores the infinite possibilities that sex, gender and sexuality fields offer to us, questioning the primacy of the conventions to which the binary gender system and heteronormativity limit us. Furthermore, this festival gives room to feminist expressions that know how to include these infinite possibilities in their discourses.
The festival will take place in Tijuana, Mexico.
A selection of the screened works in Tijuana will also be presented in Berlin, Germany.
Tijuana Cultural Center (CECUT)
Tijuana University CUT
Berlin venue TBD
The festival will be held from April 1st to 6th, 2014 (Tijuana, Mexico).
The dates for the Berlin screenings will be announced later.
Through the word “imperfectu” we want to give a new value to the concept of imperfection within the gender studies framework. The “-tu” ending avoids the gender morpheme that in Spanish language is used when the noun “imperfection” becomes an adjective. At the same time, this ending makes a reference to the Spanish pronoun “tú” (“you”) in order to create closeness to the individual.
“Imperfectu” is an invented adjective that seeks identification and fraternity between those who somehow transgress the binary system of sex and gender and heteronormativity and, therefore, are seen as outsiders of “normality” and even as “imperfect beings”. Through this festival, what a binary and heteronormative culture reads as “imperfect” is simply read as “non-normative” and, consequently, considered “normal” and celebrated from a second reading that becomes liberal and intelligent.
1. To encourage education, analysis and discussion about the relationship that cinema, art and popular culture maintain with gender studies.
2. To open a cultural space that creates visibility for all those communities whose tendencies are different from the conventional concepts of sex, gender and sexuality.
3. To promote art with a gender focus.
4. To celebrate sexual and gender diversity.
5. To create identification and fraternity among all those individuals whose tendencies are different from the conventional concepts of sex, gender and sexuality.
6. To express alternative feminisms that know how to combine their ideologies and movements and sexual and gender diversity.
7. To include. This festival in any way excludes cisgender communities; on the contrary, it seeks the integration of all types of gender and transgender manifestations.
8. To fight homophobia, lesbophobia, biphobia and transphobia, encouraging acceptance and tolerance of all those individuals whose tendencies are different from the conventional concepts of sex, gender and sexuality. Although all these objectives will have an impact directly on Tijuana society, they will also reach the Baja California and the Mexican societies as well as Spanish speaking and English speaking communities through the festival’s publications.
Gothenburg Independent Film Festival is a new upcoming festival for independent film makers arranged by the NGO Film För Fred (film for peace). The festival aspires to acknowledge and inform about the urgent social, environmental and political issues of the world. Using film to approach these questions in artistic and creative ways, we wish to create a common space where organisations, filmmakers and audience from different countries can meet to discuss and cooperate for future projects.
