Call for Entries *Stories about the Modern Paradise
Send us your short film that tells a story about Modern Paradise.
In September, Moviemiento – the travelling short film festival – and our french partners La Fée Nadou/L'Atelier Toupie will Reclaim Paradise during a two-week bicycle tour in the countryside near Berlin. Throughout two weeks of full activities, we will cycle to three different destinations while exploring the concept of paradise and its symbol: the apple. Lectures and workshops will teach participants how to satisfy human demands through recycling and using materials given to us by Mother Nature. A short-film program and artistic performances will also allow us to get closer to the idea of ‘Modern Paradise’, and the things it’s related to: sustainability, up-cycling, self-sufficient farming, fruit, nature, conservation, Utopia, escapism, non-conformism and the border between good and bad. The artistic program will be presented to the public in the three locations in a free and open format. We are looking for new, creative short films of all styles and genres that touch upon one of the above-mentioned themes.
If you have any further questions please contact iris [at] moviemiento [dot] org.
All genres are welcome: experimental, documentary, animation and fiction. Your film must be an original and not be longer than 15 minutes. You can transfer your film online over any file-transferring platform to iris [at] moviemiento [dot] org. Your screening copies can also be in DVD format. The screening copies unfortunately cannot be sent back. If language is important to your film and it is not in English, it must have English subtitles. If the film is in German, subtitling is not necessary, however English subtitling is preferable.
In addition to the screening copy, please send us the completed and signed form, a short synopsis in English, and information about the filmmaker, cast and crew. You can find the forms at www.moviemiento.org/call-entries
DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES: 1st August 2015
Wir brauchen Hilfe!
Moviemiento besitzt einen kleinen Wohnwagen den wir als mobile Bar auf unseren Events benutzen. Unser Kinomobilny. Siehe links im Foto. Leider wurde darin eingebrochen und 4 (!) Fenster komplett zerstört. Bis wir neue Fenster haben, suchen wir dringend für 1 bis 2 Monate einen Unterstellplatz mit Dach in oder bei Berlin. Carport mit offenen Seiten wäre auch ausreichend. Leider können wir nichts bezahlen und hoffen auf jemand mit grossem Herz. Wir brauchen Eure Hilfe! Wer weiss was, wer hat ein Tipp?
A big look back - and a small one forward
The beginning of the new year traditionally is used to pause for a moment and reflect on what lies behind and on what path is in front of you.
2014 brought with it a lot of cultural education; with a video-activism workshop for artists and film-activists from Germany, Egypt and Turkey in Ankara, a video and storytelling workshop for Palestinian-Syrian refugees in Beirut and taking part in film workshops on different topics in Paris and Istanbul.
With our good old friends from the South of France we organised the beautiful travelling film and arts festival Le Bazar Roulant. We installed ‘give-boxes’ in rural areas, ran 17 upcycling workshops, and held countless other performances and actions.
Furthermore Moviemiento partnered with the project Make Chocolate Fair and joined the ‘Chocomobile’ tour with 27 events in 12 countries, for sure with open air cinema.
Besides the afore-mentioned, we threw in a few smaller events in for good measure, with lovely projects like a waffle-party at our home-base Boxi, cocktails on May 1st and for sure our traditional guest screening in Übersee, Bavaria.
A short winter break gave us the chance to take a deep breath so in January, uberfull with energy, we kick-started with a workshop on the conference Cultural Management Without Borders about the fact that volunteer-based organisations, like Moviemiento, are powerful; and then off to another video-workshop in Barcelona.
All Moviemiento members are excited to see what films, travels and other things 2015 has to offer.
