    - The first edition of the event gathers together in Tenerife more than 250 professionals of the Ibero-american animation on April 6th and 7th.

    - The ceremony awards will give nine awards to the best of Ibero-american production in 2016 and 2017.

    - The Coproduction Forum and the International Animation Congress bring the industry and the academy together.

    Tenerife, April 4th 2018. This Friday April 6th and Saturday 7th, the Ibero-American animation gathers together around the Quirino Awards, that take place in Santa Cruz de Tenerife (Spain), a pioneer event in the region that searchs to value and create bonds between the animation production in the areas of Latin-America, Portugal and Spain.
     
    The organization proposes an intense program with three main activities: the ceremony award, that will take place on April 7th in the Auditorium of Tenerife and will give nine awards to the best animation of the region –the finalist awards can be checked here-; the Coproduction Forum, professional space oriented to stablish networks between the industries at both sides of the Athlantic; and the International Animation Congress, that aims to generate a space for academic and profesional exchange about animation.
     
    Twenty-four works from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Spain, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay opt for the Quirino Awards in its nine categories. Spain, with 12 finalist works, is the most represented territory, followed by Mexico and Colombia, with 5 each of them. Among the selected works are titles held internationally, such as the feature film "Tad Jones 2", "The Book of Lila" (Colombia / Uruguay) and "Ana and Bruno" (Mexico); the series "Paper Port" (Chile / Brazil / Colombia / Argentina) or "Pocoyó" (Spain), and the short films "Cerulia" (Mexico) or "Decorado" (Spain), among others.
     
    Several recognized directors of animation appear in the list of candidates for the awards, such as Juan Pablo Zaramella, Sofía Carrillo or Alberto Vázquez; and with the aim of boosting the career of new talent, the Quirino Awards also recognize the best school work, a category where we find the short films "We Are the Immigrants" (Colombia / United States), "A day in the park" (Spain) and "Tántalo" (Argentina).
     
    Meeting point for professionals of the sector
     
    Before the award ceremony, during days 6th and 7th, two other meeting activities will be held at the Auditorium of Tenerife, the main venue for this first edition. In the Co-production Forum several networking zones are proposed, such as B2B co-production meetings, meeting corners and industry presentations by professional associations of Argentina (Animar Cluster, APA), Brazil (ABCA), Chile (Animachi), Colombia (GEMA), Ecuador (Guild of Animators), Spain (Diboos, SAVE), Mexico (ACDMX), Peru (Peru Animation) and Portugal (Casa da Animaçao), among others.
     
    Likewise, the organization has convened a working table between the different associations and the Ibermedia Program, with the aim of analyzing the needs of the Ibero-American animation sector and the possibilities to be implemented by the entity to stimulate audiovisual co-production in the Ibero-American space.
     
    For its part, at the International Congress of Ibero-American Animation, eleven communications from Brazil, Denmark, Ecuador, Spain, Mexico and Portugal will be presented; and will have the special participation of the historian of animation, teacher and writer Giannalberto Bendazzi; as well as that of María Laura Ruggiero, Argentine filmmaker, audiovisual designer and storyteller with specialization in experiential and transmedia narratives.
     
    In addition, a working table will be held with representatives of universities, schools and training centers in Latin America. Among the confirmed are The Animation Workshop, SAE Institute Mexico, Polytechnic University of Valencia, University San Francisco de Quito, University of Aveiro, Anhembi Morumbi University, Federal University of Juiz de Fora, Barreira Art + Design, University of La Laguna, University Nacional de Tierra de Fuego, Lightbox Academy and U-tad, among others.
     
    During these days there will also be several screenings of the finalist works in the TEA, Tenerife Espacio de las Artes. To highlight the screening of the documentary "Without a trace (life and work of Quirino Cristiani)" by Diego Kartaszewicz.

    Ibero-American Animation Quirino Awards
     
    The awards are named in tribute of the creator of the first feature length animation film in history, the Italian-Argentinean Quirino Cristiani, who in 1917 directed “El Apóstol”; this Argentinean production, shot in 35mm, used 58,000 drawings done by hand along with a number of models representing public buildings and streets in Buenos Aires city.
     
    The main sponsor of the Quirino Awards is the Tourism department of Tenerife, reflecting the determined commitment that is being made for the animation for years on the island, not only with these awards but with the presence in the main events and markets, attracting new companies, as well as with the support to the flourishing local sector.
     
    In addition, the initiative has the sponsorship of the City of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Tenerife Espacio de las Artes (TEA) and Iberia Express; the collaboration of ICAA, Ibermedia Program, AECID, Tenerife Auditorium, Universidad de la Laguna and RTVE; and the support of DIBOOS, SAVE, Pixelatl, 3D Wire, TLP Tenerife, Annecy Festival, Barreira Arte + Diseño and Universitat Politécnica de Valencia, as well as the support of the associations: APA - Association of Animation Production Companies of Córdoba Argentina; ANIMAR CLUSTER - Argentinian Animation Cluster & VFX; ABCA - Associação Brasileira de Cinema de Animação; Animachi Chile; GEMA Colombia - Group of Animation Entrepreneurs; Guild of Animators of Ecuador; ACDMX - Association of Digital Creatives of Mexico; and Casa da Animaçao of Portugal.

    #OtherWorlds2017 Award Winners

     
    Other Worlds Austin wrapped up its successful fourth season by announcing the 2017 winners for its Best Feature Audience Award, Best Short Audience Award (sponsored by Film Colossus), the Mary Shelley Award, the Dan O’Bannon Filmmaker Award, the Cthulhies awards, and the Screenplay Contest.

    Nearly 300 films were submitted to the fourth-year festival. A passionate and engaged audience ultimately had to choose from 15 features and 28 shorts, all Austin premieres.

    The Best Feature Audience Award winner for OtherWorlds2017 is the Texas premiere of GNAW, written by Jim Brennnan, Haylar Garcia, and Kathryn Gould, and directed by Haylar Garcia. This supernatural horror film follows Jennifer Conrad, a small-town girl starting over in the big city. Fleeing an abusive relationship, all she wants is a chance to begin again. But it is hard to start over when something is eating you while you sleep… one painful bite at a time.

    The Best Short Audience Award winner for OtherWorlds2017 (sponsored by Film Colossus) is EINSTEIN-ROSEN, written and directed by Olga Osorio. In the summer of 1982, Teo claims he has found a wormhole. His brother Oscar does not believe him… at least not for now.

    Under Worlds Austin, in its third year, is the Horror sidebar to the overall Other Words festival.

    “As for the audience’s selection of Best Short,” Fonté continues, “EINSTEIN-ROSEN captures the pure joy of a child’s wonderment with science as well as classic sibling rivalry.”

    The Best Feature Audience Award 2017 winner received a $500 cash prize. The Best Short Audience Award 2017 winner received a $250 cash prize.

    Should Europe do more co-productions? International co-productions travel and perform better than purely national films. Co-productions also have access to financing not available to national films. They also make subjects and cultural identities cross borders. So should Europe do more? The European Audiovisual Observatory will be asking this question at this year’s Cannes conference: International Co-productions - A success formula for European films?

    Midnight Sun, Review: XPeriencing XP from Windows It’s not about Norway or the North Pole, where the sun shines at midnight. Rather, it is about a girl who suffers from a disease in which exposure to the sun, even for a few seconds, can prove fatal. Midnight Sun comes from a lineage that is populated by names like Anand, Love Story, Ankhiyon Ke Jharaokhon Se, Kaash and Paa.

    Peter Rabbit, Review: Fertile comedy

    Peter Rabbit, Review: Fertile comedy Peter Rabbit is an irreverent, computer-generated (largely) animated comedy, based on a 125 year-old story that has been updated to present times. Most of the story undulates as a never-ending, recurring chase, and battle of wits, between the live action hero and the cartoon animals, in Tom and Jerry style. While it should appeal naturally to kids in the age-group of 3-12, some adult-ish content makes it more relevant to the 13-18 bracket. Adults, who are ...

In the former case, he has a bee in his bonnet. Rather, he ties a local to the bonnet on his Jeep, using him as a human shield, and drives through, teaching the militants a lesson. This earns a serious reprimand from his superior officers and a strenuous survival punishment as well. In the latter case, he conducts a master class ...

History of a Never-Made Film is curated by Alessandro Romanini and by set designer Francesco Frigeri, produced by the Experimental Center of Cinematography in Rome and will be hosted at the Palazzo Ducale in Lucca (17 March-21 April 2018). After last year’s tribute to Federico Fellini and The Journey of G. Mastorna hosted at the GAMC in Viareggio, the students of the Department of Stage Design headed by Francesco Frigeri and those led by costume designer Maurizio Millenotti have drafted over 40 executive storyboards – that is to say ready to be transformed in a film set – and designed a similar number of costumes. Aided by a wide range of original documents, the goal is to recreate a journey that illustrates Visconti’s dream of transposing on film Marcel Proust’s À la recherche du temps perdu, a pharaonic project, which had to be abandoned due to lack of funding.

     

    The second exhibit entitled Art Cinema – An Unprecedented Dialogue. Behind the scenes of Sky Art Cinema curated by SKY in collaboration with Alessandro Romanini will be on display at the Fondazione Ragghianti, (23 March-23 April 2018).

Viewers will be able to enjoy never-seen-before stills of the masterpieces of Michelangelo, Raphael and Caravaggio, of the Vatican Museums and breathtaking aerial views of the Papal Basilicas (filmed for the first time close-up thanks to a special permit granted by the Holy See) and of The Uffizi Gallery in Florence.

    The 65th Sydney Film Festival today announced a sneak peek of this year’s essential viewing: 26 new films to be featured in this year’s 6-17 June event, as well as a new Festival location: HOYTS Entertainment Quarter.

    The announcement is in advance of the full program launch on Wednesday 9 May.

    “65 years young, Sydney Film Festival celebrates a spectacular history of storytelling with another 200+ feature films and documentaries, beginning with these first 26 cinematic gems,” Sydney Film Festival Director Nashen Moodley said. 

    “Since 1954 Sydney Film Festival has presented over 9,000 films to Australian audiences. The Festival may have reached a stately age, but it continues every year to deliver the most cutting edge and provocative voices in international cinema.

    “In 2018's sneak peek of the program, there are features and documentaries from Argentina to the Arctic Circle. From the war zone of Kabul, where young men risk arrest for their love of rock music, to the revolutionary creativity of punk icon Vivienne Westwood, these unique and poignant films share stories of freedom, identity and passion from across the globe.

    “The 2018 Sydney Film Festival is once again proud to kick-start exciting conversations and showcase powerful ideas and bold statements that open eyes, expand horizons and enrich the lives of our audiences and community,” he said.

    Leading the pack…

    Leading the titles announced today is Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist. The film is a fascinating profile of revolutionary fashion designer and punk icon Vivienne Westwood from UK model-turned-filmmaker Lorna Tucker.

    Also topping the list is the winner of Venice Film Festival’s 2017 Grand Jury Prize, Foxtrot, from award-winning Israeli director Samuel Maoz; and 2018 Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Award winner, The Miseducation of Cameron Post, featuring rising stars Chloë Grace Moretz (Carrie), Sasha Lane  (American Honey) and Forrest Goodluck(The Revenant).

    Two Oscar inners will also present their latest works: Sebastián Lelio’s (A Fantastic Woman, SFF 2017) Disobedience starring Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams, and Debra Granik’s (Winter’s Bone) Leave No Trace featuring young New Zealand actress Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie.

    Bold psychosexual thriller, Piercing, starring Australian actress Mia Wasikowska (Madame Bovary, SFF 2015), and spine-tingling British chiller Ghost Stories starring Martin Freeman (The Hobbit), kicks off the 2018 Festival’s Freak Me Out program.

    Anchor and Hope also delivers more star power with Natalia Tena (Harry Potter) and Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones) alongside her mother, Golden Globe nominee Geraldine Chaplin (Chaplin), in the second feature by award-winning Spanish director Carlos Marques-Marcet (10.000 Km).

    New films from Australia

    Closer to home, Australian journalist Travis Beard’s fascinating documentary RocKabul examines Afghanistan’s first metal band District Unknown, and I Used to be Normal: A Boyband Fangirl Story, is a coming-of-age documentary about the intense love of boybands, from The Beatles to One Direction.

    Maya the Bee: The Honey Games is a new family adventure – voiced by an all-star Australian cast including Richard Roxburgh, The Umbilical Brothers’ Dave Collins and Shane Dundas, and Justine Clarke (ABC’s Play School) – from Australian animation veteran Noel Cleary (Blinky Bill).

    An exhilarating debut feature from Australian director Jason Raftopoulos, West of Sunshine, starring Damien Hill (Pawno) alongside his real life step-son Ty Perham, and Kat Stewart (Offspring), will also screen in 2018.

    Big festival winners and nominees

    Favourites selected from the international festival circuit include: Sundance 2018 Special Jury Prize winner, Genesis 2.0, a documentary following scientific efforts to resurrect the woolly mammoth in an Arctic spin on Jurassic Park; and Berlinale Silver Bear winner, Mug, from renowned Polish filmmaker Małgorzata Szumowska.

    Also highly anticipated are Oscar-nominated films: The Breadwinner and The Insult. The Breadwinner was nominated for Best Animated Feature and produced by a team of Academy Award winners including Angelina Jolie and animation studio Cartoon Saloon (Song of the Sea – SFF 2015). Lebanese filmmaker Ziad Doueiri’s potent legal thriller The Insult was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Oscar.

    Sundance Grand Jury Prize nominee American Animals stars a cast of young Hollywood talent including Evan Peters (American Horror Story) and Barry Keoghan (Dunkirk, The Killing of a Sacred Deer).

    The brand-new digital restoration, from the National Film and Sound Archive, of iconic Australian Oscar nominated film My Brilliant Career (1979) – from acclaimed director Gillian Armstrong and featuring Judy Davis in her movie debut – will revive this multiple award winner for new audiences.

    Outstanding documentaries

    Sydney Film Festival’s documentary program will again deliver the most exciting true stories about people, places, enterprises and phenomena from Australia and around the globe. 

    The Festival opens a window into the lives of extraordinary young people, from Chef Flynn, about prodigy chef Flynn McGarry who became one of the world’s top chefs at just 13 years old, to students finding innovative ways to tackle the most complex environmental issues facing humanity today in Inventing Tomorrow.

    A light is shone in dangerous places, from the murder that made true crime an American obsession in Cold Blooded: The Clutter Family Murders, to the life of a veteran Kurdish soldier deactivating landmines in Iraq using only a pen knife in The Deminer, to The Long Season, an intimate record of daily life for women in a Syrian refugee camp. 

    Quirky hits

    The Festival also features heart-warming fly-on-the-wall glimpses into personal places, such as the family castle of Spanish director Gustavo Salmeron’s eccentric mother in Lots of Kids, A Monkey and A Castle. And the roly-poly lives of five guide puppies as they train for the ultimate canine career in Pick of the Litter– also screening in Sydney Film Festival’s brand new Screen Day Out program, developed for high school students.

    Interracial love, religious cults, Thai high society, and an appetite for raw offal complete a preview of the Festival’s more avant-garde works, with classic noir Samui Song from Thai auteur Pen-ek Rataranuang (Last Life In the Universe).

    New venue

    In 2018 the Festival will bring films from the world’s top film festivals to venues across Sydney. For the first time the Festival will present a program of films at HOYTS Entertainment Quarter in Moore Park. The venue will feature specially selected line-up of family films, as well as Screenability, the platform for screen practitioners with disability.

    The State Theatre, Dendy Opera Quays, Dendy Newtown, Event Cinemas George Street, Art Gallery of NSW, the Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace Cremorne, Randwick Ritz, and Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre return as official Festival screening venues. An exciting virtual reality program will return to the Festival Hub at Sydney Town Hall premiering cutting edge VR experiences, many for the first time in Australia.

    The full Sydney Film Festival program will be announced on Wednesday 9 May.

    Prof. Waman Kendre and Nawazuddin Siddiqui

    Curtain falls on NSD’s historic Theatre Olympics after 16-day Mumbai marathon

    Staggered across 17 cities, National School of Drama’s 8th Theatre Olympics came to an end after 16 continuous days of performances, seminars, master classes, interactions and street theatre shows. A glittering closing ceremony was held at the Kamgar Maidan, Elphinstone Road, Central Mumbai, not very far from the venues of the Olympics themselves.

    Among the luminaries on attendance were  

    ● Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Devendra Fadnavis as the Chief Guest

    ● Minister of State, Independent Charge, Ministry of Culture, Dr. Mahesh Sharma, and eminent theatre and film personality, Nana Patekar as Guests of Honour.

    The ceremony was honoured by the gracious presence of the Artistic Director, 8th Theatre Olympics, Ratan Thiyam, and presided over by Acting Chairman, National School of Drama Society, Dr. Arjun Deo Charan. Thiyam attended in spite of ill-health.

    Theodoros Terzopoulos, Chairman of the International Committee of Theatre Olympics, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Culture, M. L. Srivastava, and popular theatre and cine personality Nawazuddin Siddiqui were special guests at the closing ceremony. Director of National School of Drama, Prof. Waman Kendre, was also present on the occasion.

    Rang Shikhar, a collage of tribal, folk and theatre performances, followed the closing ceremony, after the dignitaries had addressed the audience.

    “We get many chances to show our strength and potentials, but 8th Theatre Olympics has given us an unprecedented opportunity to show the power of our culture. NSD is proud to have organised an event that has shown the cultural might of India,” said Director, National School of Drama Prof. Waman Kendre.

    “I wish that Indian theatre, with support of Indian government, should dominate the world. The next, which will be the 9th Theatre Olympics, will be jointly organised by Russia and Japan,” said Chairman of the International Committee of Theatre Olympics, Theodoros Terzopoulos.

    “I am really happy that Prof. Waman Kendre has taken theatre on to another platform. I appreciate your work and thank you that you have kept theatre alive. Thanks again for being associated with theatre for so long, in all possible manners,” said eminent theatre and film personality, Nana Patekar.

    “We thank the students and faculty of NSD who have supported all through the event. Also, I thank all the coordinators in the 17 cities who have worked very hard to make this a success,” said Acting Chairman, National School of Drama Society, Dr. Arjun Deo Charan.

    ‘Rang Shikhar’, a vibrant collage of tribal, folk and theatre performances, followed the closing ceremony. Renowned actors Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Manoj Joshi, Himani Shivpuri, Sachin Khedekar, along with well-known ventriloquist and puppeteer Ramdas Padhye, famous Bharat Natyam dancer Sandhya Purecha and famed Lavani dancer Vaishali Jadhav, performed at the presentation. Himani doubled as a co-compère, with regular Ashok Banthia.

    This edition of Theatre Olympics brought together around 25,000 artists under the theme Flag of Friendship. The event witnessed 450 shows, from more than 30 countries, performed across 17 cities: Agartala, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Bhopal, Bhubaneswar, Chandigarh, Chennai, Guwahati, Imphal, Jaipur, Jammu, Kolkata, Mumbai, New Delhi, Patna, Thiruvananthapuram, and Varanasi.

    The 51-day long 8th Theatre Olympics, the biggest international theatre festival, held in India for the first time, staged more than 400 plays and hosted 78 allied events, including 34 Living Legend series, 29 Master Classes, 7 Interfaces, 6 national and international seminars and 2 workshops across 17 cities. Besides, about 600 ambience performances and 250 youth forum shows took place during the nationwide event.
