Shadows of War
Innovation and Tradition in European Cinema 1940-1950
The 1940s: a decade of extreme conditions and social unrest – brutal
economic conditions, a devastated infrastructure and tight political
control. The general topic stays – but with new perspectives.
The focus will be on

production. One facet of this will be a look at the fractures or
continuities in filmmakers’ careers.

The GOING GREEN FILM FESTIVAL (GGFF) encourages green filmmaking by rewarding
filmmakers who have lessened their carbon footprint on the planet
during production, used alternative transportation within the storyline
of their films, or have created a film whose subject includes the
environment, third world issues and the like. GGFF aims to spotlight those who are working to preserve our planet through entertainment and help inspire other filmmakers to adopt green practices, build greater awareness of social and environmental issues, and raise money for the Minorities in Broadcasting Training Program (MIBTP) (www.theBroadcaster.com), a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization formed in 1992 to provide training opportunities to college graduates in TV/radio news reporting, news management and film/TV production.
Eligible films can be any genre, but must be between 10 and 120 minutes in length and have been completed between 2008 and 2010. Films may be submitted online at www.goinggreenfilmfestival.com. The standard deadline is November 30th, 2009, with a submission fee of $55
and the final deadline is January 15, 2010, with a submission fee $65.
Each submission fee includes a $20 donation towards Renewable Energy
Certificates (RECs). For every REC purchased, one megawatt-hour of
renewable electricity is delivered to power grids. Join us in our quest to REthink, REplenish, REcommit.
Director: Salomeja Marcauskaite.
