WHY call it the HOLLYWEED FILM FESTIVAL ?

Did you know that in 2017, after marijuana was legalized in California, an artist/prankster climbed up to the sign, at night, in the rain and altered the world famous sign from Hollywood to Hollyweed, thus causing an international news story and creating a psychological disruption for the business as usual residents of Los Angeles. We aim to disrupt business as usual with the Hollyweed Film Festival. You know the drill, submit your film, pay the fee and never hear back from whatever festiva...

Taiwan International Children's Film Festival

Taiwan International Children’s Film Festival (TICFF) was founded by Public Television Service (PTS, Taiwan) in 2004. Held biennially, it is the first film and television festival in Asia dedicated to viewers aged 12 and under. The 8th edition is scheduled for April 2018 in Taipei. 

TICFF’s mission is to encourage quality children’s programming worldwide and to engage young local viewers with valuable access to the media. In 2016, TICFF attracted close to 15,000 audience to the screening during the one-week event. 

In addition to bringing in and showing outstanding dramas, documentaries, animations and television programs, the Festival also includes an international competition with generous prizes that attracts the best works in children’s viewing to participate. 

In addition, a key part of the Festival is the “Kids as Directors” section, which focuses on works in which young filmmakers have had a key role in production. This category gives young people a chance to display their creativity and serves as another way to bring children closer to the world of film and video.

PTS has striven since its founding in 1998 to serve the people of Taiwan with the finest in television viewing for viewers of all ages. PTS has also taken on the heavy responsibility of organizing and carrying out TICFF in order to give children in Taiwan a chance to view the world from a better vantage point. Hopefully the works shown in this Festival will introduce young viewers to other cultures and other perspectives and help to broaden the horizons of all who come to the events.

Working with the Candiani is the Circuito Cinema and Office of Youth Policies and Peace of the City of Venice, UNICEF, Cinit Cineforum Italiano, Friends of the Arts in Mestre and Lions Club Mestre Castelvecchio.

Video-For-Kids Section

Videos for kids made by under-18 filmmakers or by any grade level school are eligible. The film can be shot on any format, but it must not run more than 10' (including the titles and the acknowledgements).

The criteria for evaluating the videos will consider the film’s effectiveness in achieving educational and visual goals and conciseness.

Special juries will make a preliminary selection of the submitted works. The juries have the final discretion to disqualify from the competition works considered violent, racist, pornographic or otherwise objectionable.

FOXED! interview with Director James Stewart

user
  Interview: James Stewart – Foxed!   The implementation of stereoscopic 3-D in film is still a relatively new concept. It’s a polarizing subject, with most casual moviegoers having no problem throwing wads of cash at major studios for the chance to put on the infamously un-hip glasses, while most hardcore cinephiles denounce the technique as a distracting, gimmicky blotch on the history of cinema. 3-D movies have been hugely lucrative for major studios, but most 3-D ...

CURSE OF THE SUNSET STARLET

Director: Lori Precious.

An aging horror film star returns home to her long abandoned daughter claiming she is dying. But is she really just a drifter, a grifter or a ghost come to destroy her daughter and her two kids? Only a swarm of sunset moths know the secret in this magical realism tinged tale of family and forgiveness.

Upside Down

Director: Ajay Singh.
Upside Down is a metaphorical revelation about the ways and means of every day city life as seen through the eyes of a little village kid. Upside Down as a film asks for our attention towards the high paced, highly glamorous and at times unnecessarily excited ways we have started living our lives, which for a naïve village kid is nothing short of spectacle witnessed during rare occasions of carnival or circus. Making us ponder whether we have got it all wrong as in Upside Down.
