Brodsky

The Fresh Demonstrations of My Movies of Brodsky and Akhmatova

user
As the feedback is so perceptible for me as the director-essayist of shortcuts dedicated to poetry and poets, I ponder that I have to add fresh annotations or at least commentaries sufficient to characterize further directions of my work as of a cinematographer. My "Carmine Frescoes of Joseph Brodsky: the Venetian Sheen" gathered a harvest of attention, and I have a bit to tell you of, concerning fresh demonstrations and the definite recognition of the genre that I invented for my up ...

Carmine Frescoes of Joseph Brodsky: the Venetian Sheen

Director: Anna Polibina-Polansky.
The movie is entirely dedicated to the late period of the life of Joseph Brodsky and to his "venetian" days. Fantasies are totally fed by the real facts from the biography of the poet.

Poppy Jasper Film Festival

The Poppy Jasper Film Festival celebrates the short filmmaking craft and conveys its passion for filmmaking to the community, and has been acclaimed by MovieMaker Magazine as “one of the top 25” in the country for its focus on filmmaker experience. This expresses itself in the continual ways that festival organizers actively foster interaction, ideas, and ongoing contact between filmmakers at all levels of experience and invited screenwriters, directors, producers, and actors. These industry professionals include Academy and Emmy award winners and nominees, people whose extensive experience in the filmmaking industry brings audiences a close-up view of the passion motivating independent filmmaking. The short films (30 minutes or less), which run from horror to comedy, documentary to sci-fi, musical to romance, all have one thing in common: they entertain their audiences. Additionally, this 501(c)3 nonprofit organization awards an annual scholarship to an up-and-coming student filmmaker. Taking its name from the beautiful and rare poppy jasper gemstone found exclusively in Morgan Hill, California, the Poppy Jasper Film Festival mines the popular, fast-growing niche of short films.  The Seventh Annual Poppy Jasper Film Festival will be held November 12 -14, 2010 in Morgan Hill, California.  For further information about the Poppy Jasper Film Festival, please visit www.poppyjasperfilmfest.org
