You´re now welcome to submit your film to the upcoming 14th Norrkoping Film Festival
Flimmer. Important dates and entry form is available on our website: www.flimmer.nu
Deadline: 25th of July!
Flimmer is southeast Sweden's biggest independent film organisation and is based in Norrköping, a former forerunner of the industrial revolution in Sweden. In a city steeped in tradition and history, Flimmer has successfully established itself in two distinct areas.
Norrkoping Film festival Flimmer is a favourite in the cinema-goers' calendar in southeast Sweden. The 14th annual festival will take place between 5th and 14th of October this year. Following the huge success of last year's festival, Flimmer will, this year, offer a multitude of films to please anybody who is genuinely interested in cinema. All the films are shown in Norrköping and are screened at times and in venues to maximise your enjoyment. Last year's festival opened with the Swedish film “Stockholm Östra”, the Swedish premieres of “Even the Rain” and Liz Garbus’ “Bobby Fischer Against the World”. The festival also saw the Swedish premieres of “Talihina Sky: the Story of Kings of Leon” and James Gunn’s “Super” as well as shocking yet informative documentaries; animation; short films; Midnight Screenings; and face-to-face interviews with actors, actresses and directors. This year the attempt is not only to maintain the quality and variety of last year’s festival but also to make this year even more memorable. Last year we therefore made the move to Cnema ( www.cnema.se ), the new venue for cinema goers in Norrköping and the East Sweden region, where three top modern auditoriums will host this year’s festival screenings.
Our open air cinema is the biggest open-air cinema event in Sweden. The Flimmer Utomhusbio visits around 30 places in Sweden between June and September, and is welcoming 40 000 people to the inflatable giant screen. The open air cinema runs between May and September and this year’s programmes include Oscar winners and well-known Swedish titles. The programme is available here in May and each screening is free, although there will be a raffle every evening and donations are gratefully received.

The Phenom Film Fest is being held in the Shreveport-Bossier City, Louisiana area. No stranger to filmmaking, the region has experienced a major boom in recent years, with numerous studios calling the region home. Since Louisiana offers one of the top tax incentive programs for filmmaking nationwide, it's no wonder it's been referred to as "Hollywood South."
While major film studios have used the locale to serve as the backdrop for numerous cities and countries worldwide, the Phenom Film Fest serves to draw interest, support and attention to independent filmmaking locally and internationally. The festival will show roughly 40-60 features and shorts while showcasing fun, interactive and innovative talk panels.
Cine Migratorio is a migration-themed film festival that will take place May 10-13, 2012 in Santander, Spain. The Festival aims to present a program of artistically accomplished, thematically challenging and stimulating films about migration to students, migrants, Santander residents, and anyone who wishes to join us for this weekend-long event. We hope these films will incite reflection and discussion about migration, but also about the power of film to capture mobility in a modern age.
We welcome all film genres (feature, short, documentary, experimental, animation) and do not endorse any one political stance on migration issues. Cine Migratorio endeavors to screen films that explore a wide range of migration-related themes and issues, from the way in which economic and social forces that drive migration cross as many borders as migrants themselves, to personal migration stories, to films less directly concerned with migration but still resonant with its effects and contexts.
In addition to screenings, Cine Migratorio will feature lectures, workshops, live music, and other events. Leading up to the festival, Cine Migratorio will host an array of programs in local high schools and local centers.
Cine Migratorio will take place May 10-13th in Santander, Spain, in the Paraninfo at the Las Llamas campus of the Universidad Internacional Menendez Pelayo (UIMP).
On August 3rd and 4th, 2012, the Ballston Spa Business and Professional Association (BSBPA) will present the FIFTH Annual Ballston Spa Film Festival in Wiswall Park.

Hollywood film professionals will judge the entrants to determine award winners in several categories including two exclusively for young filmmakers.
This program is funded in part by Saratoga Program for Arts Funding (SPAF) part of the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts, administered by Saratoga Arts.

In the five years since its inception, the Reggae Film Festival has included films made by Jamaicans, as well as global reggae researchers and fans from the Caribbean, UK, USA, Canada, Spain, Germany, Serbia, Italy, Japan, Iran, France and Ethiopia. The focus of many documentaries on the history of Jamaican music and music makers, ensures an archive of historical material on the genre that preserves the oral memories of a culture that has spread to and been honored by the world.

The acknowledged expertise and innovation of Jamaican music video makers exposing the talents of Jamaica's powerful musical artists, provides another area highlighted by the Reggae Film Festival.
Annual Awards are presented in several categories and and the international interest in the unique music and culture of Jamaica. has given prize-winning films further international awards and distribution. The Festival's identification of the genre of 'reggae films' creates a digital archive of films available for research into a variety of aspects of the Jamaican culture that emerged from the Rastafari movement and spread with the music of reggae legend Bob Marley.

Africa in Motion is already in its sixth year! The profile of the festival has grown steadily since the inaugural season in 2006 and this year, 2011, Africa in Motion focuses its attention on films and events that open doors to children and youth in Africa.
Our programme of films and events deals with many aspects relating to youth, such as education, entertainment, stories and myths, the future, and social issues affecting children and young people in Africa.
This year we made a special effort to invite schools and children to the cinema and we are screening a number of films especially for primary and secondary schools in and around Edinburgh, in collaboration with National Schools Film Week.
Alongside the film screenings, the festival has endeavoured to create fun and challenging workshops and events for Scottish children to really engage with the lives and experiences of their African counterparts and get to learn the stories best known to them.
The rest of the festival will be dedicated to our well-known quality films: epic features, contemporary gems, incisive documentaries, acclaimed shorts and animation films, with a continuing focus on children and youth in Africa.
