HumanDOC International Documentary Film Festival GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT IN CINEMA

2nd HumanDOC International Documentary Film Festival: GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT IN CINEMA

 

 We are pleased to invite all filmmakers and TV producers who would like to take part in the HumanDOC International Documentary Film Festival:Global Development in Cinema. The festival will be held in Warsaw, Poland from November 12th -17th 2011 at Kinoteka in Palace of Culture & Science in Warsaw.

Through the screenings of selected productions we would like to bring our festival audience closer to current problems of people living in developing nations, and to provide them with deeper insights into the politics
of global development and various issues related to international aid for economically depressed countries.


We are looking for original, wise and objective productions (documentaries, reportages and social advertising) that will increase the awareness of the viewers on problems of injustice and depravation in developing nations. What we seek are productions that will raise important questions about the state of our contemporary world, and urge people to reflect on the meaning of help for those in need.

We are looking for:
* Documentary films,
* TV Reportages,
* Social advertising/campaigns related to developmental issues.

We are especially interested in themes such as:
1. Interdependence of the Global North and Global South.
2. The ones set out in the UN Millennium Development Goals.
3. Everyday problems of people living in developing countries.
4. Examples of help brought by donors, international organizations, governmental agencies and NGOs - both positive and those who have not been successful.
5. Social advertising/campaigns about UN Millennium Development Goals or development issues.

The Festival will present the best documentaries and commercials on subjects related to developing nations from around the world. We would like to show productions that increase the awareness about the countries' dependency on international aid. We hope that people who will participate in our festival will learn about how global issues affect the everyday lives of people and societies around the world, and how each and every one of us can get involved and make a positive change for people in poorer nations.

Kathmandu International Mountain Film Festival (KIMFF) 2011

The 9th edition of Kathmandu International Mountain Film Festival will be held from 8-12 December 2011 in Kathmandu - the cultural and cosmopolitan capital of the Himalayan region. Since its birth in 2000, KIMFF has evolved from a festival focusing initially on the Himalaya to one encompassing a wide range of subjects and issues that explore the diverse and complex ways in which human beings relate to mountains. KIMFF seeks to showcase films that attract peer review and critiques that lead to better documentation of mountain issues, particularly of highland regions of the developing world.

 

About 50 films will be selected for KIMFF 2011. Around 15-20 documentaries will be shortlisted to be viewed by an international jury. Filmmakers can choose whether or not to submit their films for competition. Accepted films not selected for competition will be screened and be eligible for the Audience Award. Films made by Nepali filmmakers will have the opportunity to participate in ‘Nepal Panorama’, a separate showcase of Nepali entries. The objective of ‘Nepal Panoroma’ is to promote Nepali films in all genres.

 

KIMFF 2011 coincides with Nepal Tourism Year 2011. As part of this effort the festival will feature a special selection of films that have been instrumental in putting Nepal on the world tourism map. Films and activities that celebrate man's spirit for exploration and adventure, will also be part of this edition of the festival.

 

In the presence of filmmakers, film enthusiasts, critics, scholars, journalists, activists, and mountaineers, the festival will include discussion forums, on-demand screenings, guest lectures, exhibitions of books and photographs celebrating mountains and workshops for aspiring filmmakers.

Helping us to understand the turmoil and the inner lives of those cultures, four films in the New Directors/New Film series, entering its first weekend...

2011 Slamdance Film Festival Winners

user
  The Slamdance Film Festival, which takes place in Park City, Utah at the same time as the Sundance Film Festival, takes low budget American indies to its heart. It tends to show the more experimental, scruffy work that clock in at less than a $1 Million budget (some far less than that). They tend to be the kinds of films that are passed over by their glitzier festival cousin. However, over the past 17 years, the Festival has discovered true gems that have long careers. More of these ...
