Fallbrook Film Festival - The Frank Capra Award- Call For Films

http://www.fallbrookfilmfestival.com/

 

https://www.withoutabox.com/01festival/01t_acc/01t_acc_edit.php?festival_id=6206

 

Located in Southern California, Fallbrook and its surrounding communities is a beehive of creative energies: artists, sculptors, writers, actors, musicians, dancers, designers, and filmmakers. In 2006, the non-profit Fallbrook Film Factory was formed to foster filmmaking activities similar to community theatre, and out of that the Fallbrook International Film Festival evolved, now entering its fifth season. Fallbrook was also the family home to one of Hollywood’s all-time filmmaking legends Frank Capra during the height of his filmmaking career. To that aim, we have been most fortunate to gain the support of the Capra family, allowing us to host a very special award in his name. And this year, due to the strong support from the Hollywood stunt community, we are adding Action Films as an award category and workshops with top stunt directors, reveling this hidden art of filmmaking.

International Children's Film Festival India

International Children's Film Festival India (ICFFI) also popularly known as The Golden Elephant is a biennial festival that strives to bring the most delightful and imaginative national and international children's cinema to young audiences in India. Outstanding features, shorts, live action and animation films are screened over seven days of festive celebrations, attended by more than one hundred thousand children and hundreds of film professionals from across the world.

ICFFI is organized by Children's Film Society India (CFSI) - a national government body committed to nurturing a dynamic children's film culture in the country. Since its inception in 1955, CFSI has been producing, exhibiting and distributing exclusive, entertaining and enriching content for children.

Every two years, the festival begins on 14th November, the birth date of Jawaharlal Nehru - India's first Prime Minister - also fondly referred to as Chacha Nehru (Uncle Nehru), because of his love for children. Nehru established CFSI soon after India's independence with the hope that indigenous and exclusive cinema for children would stimulate their creativity, compassion and critical thinking. It is this vision of Jawaharlal Nehru that guides ICFFI.

In a world that is cluttered with consumerist & often violent content for children, ICFFI is committed to promoting cinema that is humane and non-violent, and yet delightful and fun! Special care is taken to program films that cultivate an understanding of other cultures, lives and experiences and encourage children to reflect on the world around. Workshops and open forums at the festival aim towards stimulating critical appreciation and creative pursuit of cinematic arts amongst young people. The festival also supports the work of children's filmmakers by rewarding them for their dedication and talent.

ICFFI is one of the largest and most colourful children's film festivals in the world. A unique feature of the festival is its audience: more than a hundred thousand children travel from little villages and towns from across India to view high quality international children's cinema that they would never be exposed to otherwise. Here they rub shoulders with other kids, eminent guests and directors from different parts of the world. ICFFI is dedicated to these little delegates and to those imaginative film-makers who attempt to make films for the toughest audience of all - children!

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.
