Cine Migratorio

Cine Migratorio is a migration-themed film festival that will take place May 10-13, 2012 in Santander, Spain. The Festival aims to present a program of artistically accomplished, thematically challenging and stimulating films about migration to students, migrants, Santander residents, and anyone who wishes to join us for this weekend-long event. We hope these films will incite reflection and discussion about migration, but also about the power of film to capture mobility in a modern age. We welcome all film genres (feature, short, documentary, experimental, animation) and do not endorse any one political stance on migration issues. Cine Migratorio endeavors to screen films that explore a wide range of migration-related themes and issues, from the way in which economic and social forces that drive migration cross as many borders as migrants themselves, to personal migration stories, to films less directly concerned with migration but still resonant with its effects and contexts. In addition to screenings, Cine Migratorio will feature lectures, workshops, live music, and other events. Leading up to the festival, Cine Migratorio will host an array of programs in local high schools and local centers. Cine Migratorio will take place May 10-13th in Santander, Spain, in the Paraninfo at the Las Llamas campus of the Universidad Internacional Menendez Pelayo (UIMP).

When is a boondoggle not a boondoggle?

user
A lot of people in the advertising business think of a boondoggle the way the Supreme Court thinks of porn –– they can't define it, but they know it when they see it. I don't think it's that hard to draw the line. It all comes down to responsibility. If you're doing something you honestly intend to help your client, you're not engaging in boondogglery. If you're doing something for your own personal gratification at the expense of your client, you are. Take me, for exam...
