DIFF PANEL ON DISTRIBUTION Peter Weir said, "you have to adapt to new film market. We must protect and conserve new indie filmmakers of world or we will frighten them and scare them. It's a curious middle road today. We have to encourage the very thing that is draining financing from us. It scares us and yet we are driven to do it. There is nothing more painful than making a film that doesn't bring

First Asian Film Festival on Disaster Risk Reduction (AFFDRR)

 First Asian Film Festival on Disaster Risk Reduction (AFFDRR)25-28 October, 2010 at Incheon city, Republic of Korea Environmental hazards and geo-climatic conditions, adding to vulnerabilities of the region, have made the whole of Asia more susceptible to all kinds of natural and man-made disasters. These issues have drawn attention at highest level, compelling serious intervention at top most level by the countries of this region. Starting in 2005 from China, the Fourth Asian Ministerial Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (AMCDRR) is being organized from October 25 to 28 this year in the South Korean city of Incheon. This regional conference has emerged as the principal forum for Asian policy-makers and experts in the field of disaster risk reduction (DRR) to discuss ways and means of coping with and minimizing the impact of natural and man-man calamities.Cinema is a powerful tool of documentation and dissemination by way of its presentation and a film festival on this subject can go a long away in promoting awareness about disaster risk reduction in the region. As an effective tool of communication, the films leave long lasting impact on the minds of viewers. Many social and cultural issues have been presented in the form of films to communicate special messages. These films aspire to change the world, seeking to alter the political agenda and the popular understanding of issues.To strengthen the mandate of AMCDRR and to encourage sharing of knowledge between countries of the region, Global Forum for Disaster Reduction (GFDR), India, in collaboration with Asian Disaster Reduction Center (ADRC), Kobe, Japan, proposes to hold a festival of Asian-made and Asian-themed films to run alongside the conference. The festival will showcase short, documentary and fiction films made on the themes of disaster management, risk reduction and rehabilitation. The major objective of the Film Festival will be to promote the goals of Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA) through sharing and dissemination of information on DRR amongst various sections of the society. This will in turn also help in bringing a greater understanding of Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and heighten the sensitivities towards Climate Change issues. Global Forum for Disaster Reduction (GFDR), India, has been very actively involved in DRR activities since its inception. We believe in ‘Global Vision – Local Action’ and hence emphasize on sharing of globally available knowledge and information to suit the local needs. Asian Disaster Reduction Centre (ADRC), Kobe, Japan, established in 1998, is a network of about 30 countries and is working towards building disaster resilient communities and to establish networks among countries through many programs including personnel exchanges in this field. GFDR and ADRC have been working closely on many programmes and issues focusing on disaster risk reduction and mitigation. We share similar views and values on the importance of knowledge and information sharing.The proposed Asian Film Festival on Disaster Risk Reduction would be first of its kind and address all forms of disaster related issues concerning natural and selective man-made disasters. This film festival aims at providing a platform to films/documentaries etc. The success of the this event will further open up ways for organizing it on a wider scale in following years by screening of films and documentaries from all over the world.

Boycott The Film Festivals Mandarines

Attention scoop: festivals aren't profitable. They're intended to help leverage the buzz of a film in order to get distribution. The festival circuit is unique as it sheds light on an amazing wealth of productions worldwide. The concept is terrific.  However, often the concept is not understood properly. Festival means festive celebration. Festivals celebrate the 7th art. My mission is I accept it is not to sabotage a film or a festival but to report about the films, ambiance and what...
