Bottom in de Road

Set in rural and urban Trinidad, from Port-of-Spain to Princes Town, on beaches and boats, on streets and in markets, Bottom in De Road is truly a Caribbean film because it explodes with Caribbean scenery and in highlighting Carnival it is situated firmly within Trinidad’s ‘wining culture’, making use of Caribbean rhythms, scenery, language and people. This documentary film is based firmly on the Afro-Caribbean man’s cultural fascination with the female bottom – a...

WHY call it the HOLLYWEED FILM FESTIVAL ?

Gutenberg in the Cyberstorm

#
Director: Susanne Lenz-Gleissner.
"We have the situation where the book has become something that's reading you instead of you reading the book," says Jaron Lanier, winner of the 2014 Peace Prize of the German Book Trade. Digitalization has revolutionized the book industry and that has sparked concern and heated debates in both Germany and the United States. Over 2,000 writers in both countries have protested against the cut-throat pricing policies of online book retailer Amazon and its massive influence on the market. The e-book is well established on the US market. In Germany, however, the book is treasured as a time-tested means of preserving knowledge. What is the value of the book in the digital age? A film team sets out on a transatlantic journey to find out. They visit Germany, where Gutenberg invented the printing press over 550 years ago, and the United States, the hub of digital innovation. The journey begins in Seattle, where Amazon's headquarters are located, and continues on to Los Angeles, Mainz, Weimar, Frankfurt, Munich, Berlin and New York. Prestigious interview partners reflect on the future of the book: Internet philosopher Jaron Lanier, Dr. Michael Knoche, director of the Herzogin Anna Amalia Library in Weimar, Jeff Jarvis, media expert, Yvonne Hofstetter, artificial intelligence expert and the authors Daniel Suarez und Marc Elsberg. A journey through the history of the book and the current debate over the power of giant online companies. The film also looks at the future and the risks that digitalization may yet hold in store.

Africa in Motion Film Festival

Africa in Motion is already in its sixth year! The profile of the festival has grown steadily since the inaugural season in 2006 and this year, 2011, Africa in Motion focuses its attention on films and events that open doors to children and youth in Africa.

Our programme of films and events deals with many aspects relating to youth, such as education, entertainment, stories and myths, the future, and social issues affecting children and young people in Africa.

This year we made a special effort to invite schools and children to the cinema and we are screening a number of films especially for primary and secondary schools in and around Edinburgh, in collaboration with National Schools Film Week.

Alongside the film screenings, the festival has endeavoured to create fun and challenging workshops and events for Scottish children to really engage with the lives and experiences of their African counterparts and get to learn the stories best known to them.

The rest of the festival will be dedicated to our well-known quality films: epic features, contemporary gems, incisive documentaries, acclaimed shorts and animation films, with a continuing focus on children and youth in Africa.
