"Citizenfour" Reveals Edward Snowden

Is Edward Snowden getting his vitamin D? Laura Poitras's new documentary Citizenfour shines bright light on the former National Security Agency contractor -- who did more than his own share of elucidating -- but still, we worry. As the images of a dark tunnel hint, things can get pretty bleak for whistleblowers. Much of the film spans eight days in 2013 when the NSA defector is holed up in Hong Kong's Mira hotel. Composed and hyper-articulate at 29, Snowden briefs then-Guardian column...

Busseto Music Film Festival

 

The cultural association Parma OperArt promotes for 2012 the first edition of the Busseto Music Film Festival, an international contest aiming at giving a prize to the best soundtrack and therefore to the best composer of music for the cinema.

The first prize will be the Cigno d’oro (Golden swan). This will be followed by the Silver Swan to the best film, Honourable Mention to the best Direction, Photography, interpreter and finally the best music and sound design. The initiative aims not only at drawing the public’s attention to good and recent film productions but also at emphasizing the value of music writing for the cinema as an essential element for poetics and for the success of the film itself. The contest will also be an occasion for people in the film industry and producers to present their work to a wide public and to an international jury.

Moreover, Parma OperArt has the possibility to sell the film to a national television channel, so the Festival represents a great showcase and a further chance.

Those who are interested can present their film until 30th June 2012. Films and videos from all nations, subjects and duration – not less than 25 minutes – can take part in the contest, as long as they have not been produced before 2010. Documentaries, opera films and/or films about the opera, biographies, animation films are all admitted.
