Cannes: SR Socially Relevant Film Festival New York launches 3rd edition and opens Early Bird submissions during the Cannes Film Festival 2015!

SR Socially Relevant (TM) Film Festival New York wrapped its 2nd annual edition after week-long screenings of 53 films from 33 countries and four industry panels in March. SR Film Festival honored Albert Maysles posthumously with the Lifetime of Inspiration Award while the festival’s special Justice and Peace Award went to Israeli Filmmaker Guy Davidi (Five Broken Cameras) for his film High Hopes featuring a soundtrack by Pink Floyd.
 

SR Socially Relevant (TM) Film Festival NY, now in its 3rd year, is a film festival that focuses on socially relevant human interest stories and raises awareness to social problems by offering positive solutions through the powerful medium of cinema. SR Socially Relevant (TM) Film Fest NY shines the spotlight on filmmakers who tell compelling, socially relevant narratives across a broad range of social issues without resorting to gratuitous violence and violent forms of movie making. The film categories include shorts, documentaries, narrative features as well as scripts in competition.

According to Festival Founding Artistic Director Nora Armani, “The festival is a movement for the promotion of socially relevant film content not just a week-long series of screenings. We strongly believe in the power of cinema for positive social change, and we work hard in rewarding filmmakers who chose to tell socially relevant stories.” In view of this the festival curates screenings throughout the year and secures an annual presence at the Cannes Marché Doc Corner with a selection of Docs from its slate.

After a successful and expanded 2nd edition in 2015 the SR team is now looking forward to organizing the 3rd edition that will take place in March 2016. In Cannes, the team is busy with meetings with potential sponsors, new partners, and is keen on inviting film offices of countries rich with Socially Relevant (TM) film content to become the focus of its 3rd edition. New submissions open Monday May 18. The discount code: CAN15 offers Early Bird entries a further discount.

For more information on the festival, the industry panels, how to be involved as a partner, sponsor, panelist, jury, and filmmaker, visit the festival’s website: www.ratedsrfilms.org or contact the festival team at: ratedsrfilmfest@gmail.com

New Urbanism Film Festival

The New Urbanism Film Festival was created to move the conversation about urban planning out of the text book and beyond the council chambers and into the movie theater.

How we design our cities effects everyone, not just legislatively and academically, but in a real day to day sense.  Safe sidewalks and open spaces encourage healthy lifestyle habits for ourselves and our community.  Not to mention safe driving and more bicycling, etc.

To encourage a broader audience for planning conversations we founded a film festival. To generate better films about the issues of planning, we made it a competition.  We hope that through the screenings of these films we will regenerate a dialogue between the academic, the advocate, the planner, and the public.

Now in our third year, we are reaching even broader audiences, inviting more voices to join the conversation about creating better places.

The 2015 Festival will be held October 8-11  in Los Angeles at the ACME Theater:

135 N. La Brea Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90036

During TranScreen you can enjoy feature films and shorts, mainstream and experimental, professional and community films from different countries. TranScreen is the largest transgender film festival in Europe.

TranScreen is a cultural and informative film festival on the theme of transgender and gender diversity. The festival aims to show qualitative and challenging films from all over the world. The aim is to increase public awareness to provide the versatility of transgender and gender diverse people.

Simultaneously, TranScreen is an event in which (trans)gender diversity is the norm. A public space where everyone can be themselves in a secure environment. Regardless of gender orientation or sexual preference. A place to meet up and exchange international experiences in a relaxed and spontaneous way.

TranScreen has a clear social mission. Many ‘closet’ transgender people, or those that have left that noun behind long time ago and are no longer within the transgender community, come to TranScreen. Therefore, the festival offers a special meeting. This is an important asset, the impact should not be underestimated.

Nevada City Film Festival

The 15th annual NCFF kicks off September 10-13, 2015. Since 2001, NCFF has brought top independent film, music and comedy, along with attracting thousands of attendees, international filmmakers, and industry guests to the historic Gold Rush era town of Nevada City, California.

NCFF is often referred to as the “Sundance of the Sierra” for its emphasis on fiercely independent cinema that showcases innovative, progressive and exciting new voices in film.  Independent films offer a necessary alternative to mainstream movies.  Independent film focus on creative and inspiring storytelling rather than box office sales
and are driven by people with a pure artistic vision versus a film studio.

Independent film festivals can be a lot of fun, but they are also a living forum for new voices to be heard and new visions to be shared. NCFF brings together a likeminded community of film lovers and filmmakers where their voices and visions connect and resonate with welcoming and adventurous audiences.

NCFF is known for recognizing and supporting new talent including up and coming filmmakers such as Jonathan Krisel (Portlandia), Patrick Brice (CREEP, The Overnight), Academy Award-Winning director Lucy Walker (Tsunami and the Cherry Blossom, The Crash Reel), Academy Award-nominee director and animator Daisy Jacobs (The Bigger Picture), director Kat Candler (Hellion), director Rick Alverson (Entertainment), animator and performance artist Miwa Matryek,
director David Zellner (Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter), animator Galen Pehrson, and directors Mark and Jay Duplass, among others.

In previous years NCFF has hosted filmmakers such as Mike Mills, Miranda July, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim (Cartoon Networks Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!), and comedians including Nick Kroll (FX’s The League, and Comedy Central’s Nick Kroll Show), Natasha Leggero (Chelsea Lately), and Marc Maron (WTF Podcast). Past NCFF judges have included award-winning producers and directors, plus writers from The Huffington Post, New York Times, McSweeneys, San Francisco Chronicle, Rolling Stone Magazine, and Pop-Up Magazine.

Professional, student, and amateur filmmakers are invited to submit short and feature length films including documentaries, animation, narrative, and comedy.  Last year, NCFF featured over 70 shorts and 10 feature lengths from across the globe.
