Black & White - International Audiovisual Festival

In May Porto opens its doors to the monochromatic aesthetics. The Black & White - International Audiovisual Festival, which receives video, audio and photographs in black and white, will take into competition works from all over the world.
With unique worldwide characteristics this initiative grew from the need to answer to the audience's growing sensitivity to black & white specificity, leaving behind the prejudice that relates this aesthetics with works of early cinema.
But the festival shows more than videos and photos in two colours, it also encourages the creation of sound environments referring to the black and white.
Over four days, several activities related to the audiovisual world will be carried out in addition to the competitions: artist talks, screenings and extensions from other international festivals. The nights will also be exciting with a broad cultural program.

Mestre Film Fest

From 17 to 18 October 2014, the Candiani Cultural Center is playing host to the Mestre Film Fest, the international short film festival now in its seventeen year and as always, with exciting new initiatives. 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. The new feature this year is from the world of production, the support of IMG Cinemas, and the new multiplex in Piazzale Candiani by the Furlan family, the storied operators of urban movie houses.

The films must fall into one of the following categories:

Short Stories Section

Short films running no longer than 15' (including the titles and the acknowledgements) are eligible, regardless of the topic (documentary, fiction, videoclip, etc.) shot on any format.

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.

The UNICEF - Veneto Regional Committee - will award a prize or honourable mention to works that best meet the inspirational principles of the International Convention on the Rights of the Child.

 

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.

Cucalorus Film Festival

The 20th annual Cucalorus Film Festival takes place November 12-16, 2014 in downtown Wilmington, North Carolina. The non-competitive festival showcases more than 200 films from all over the world and attracts an accumulated audience of 14,800 cultural travelers who come to celebrate the art-form and connect with peers. The festival's spirited celebration has been recognized as a breeding ground for young artists, new ideas and lifelong friendships. Festival programs focus on dance, music videos, emerging artists, social justice, works-in-progress, and international cinema. Cucalorus creates an opportunity for intimate engagement between audience and artist through the festival’s retreat-like atmosphere, resulting in friendships that extend far beyond the festival’s 5-day celebration.
