We are looking for short films that deal with the topic: Rebirth and Renewal
This spring Moviemiento is staging the interdisciplinary arts and culture project Le Bazar Roulant together with our partners, La Fée Nadou, in Cévennes, France. The Le Bazar Roulant film programme will explore the concept of ´Rebirth and Renewal ´, and will include more poetic films broaching the topic – think Phoenix Rising - with films with more pragmatic messaging towards the concepts of 'Reduce, Re-use, Recycle'.
The Moviemiento year starts in March with the video activism workshop - Resisting the news! - where we will bring together 6 video artists from Germany, Turkey and Egypt to create Mash-ups out of found footage. Moviemiento is co-organizing the workshop together with the Film Festival Puruli at Goethe Institut Ankara beginning of March. The project is part of the TANDEM–Cultural Managers Exchange Turkey–European Union.
Two months later we go on with the project Le Bazar Roulant in Cevennes in southern France. Together with the artist residence La Fée Nadou we will work on upcycling, giveboxes (boxes where you can swap nice things for free) and for sure short films. It´s a follow up project from our 2011 project Le rêve roulant. The project is generously supported by the Robert Bosch Foundation.
After Le Bazar Roulant, the first of four video workshops of our project Cinetrain will happen in Paris (the second workshop is scheduled for October in Istanbul). The project is a collaboration between Moviemiento and three partners from Spain, Turkey and France and aims to provide workshops on how to use video in adult education. The project will be realized thanks to the financial support of the EU-Grundtvig programme.
We are looking forward to these exiting projects and are always open for further cooperations.
Stay tight, your Moviemiento Team!
A Plastic Dream - great success
After the three great performances in Berlin in May/June 2013 (Heimathafen Neukölln, Funkhaus Grünau and Mauerpark), „A Plastic Dream“ (the theatre piece resulting from the German-Egyptian project CultureSITES between the Egyptian “Young Theatre Atelier” and Moviemiento) was performed in July 2013 in Bayt Al Sennary – an event location in a historical palace in Cairo – in front of around 300 spectators. Afterwards the show was hosted by Al Tali'a Theatre (=the Avant-Garde Theatre), an Egyptian state theatre. The initial deal was to perform for 15 nights, but due to the success of this young experimental theatre it was extended for another 30 nights. From October 16 until December 16 the theatre piece was watched by around 3000 spectators and praised by many national art critics (among others in “Al-Ahram Weekly”). Further more it was a great honor for the troupe to be invited as the only nomination from Egypt to the “Arabic Theatre Festival 2014” in Sharja (United Emirates), where it gained again international spotlight.
Moviemiento congratulates the members of Young Theatre Atelier to their big success. We are very happy that we realized CultureSITES together and we are looking forward to future projects.
