ALEXIS THEMISTOCLEOUS REPORTS: KYNTHIA LIVANIOU | FOR A HELEN

ALEXIS THEMISTOCLEOUS REPORTS- KYNTHIA LIVANIOU _ FOR A HELEN filep motwary blog 346ALEXIS THEMISTOCLEOUS REPORTS- KYNTHIA LIVANIOU _ FOR A HELEN filep motwary blog 342ALEXIS THEMISTOCLEOUS REPORTS- KYNTHIA LIVANIOU _ FOR A HELEN filep motwary blog 343ALEXIS THEMISTOCLEOUS REPORTS- KYNTHIA LIVANIOU _ FOR A HELEN filep motwary blog 345

Dear Filep & iDEALS,

I have just visited Kynthia Livaniou’s exhibition “For a Helen” and thought to share her wonderful images with you! Livaniou’s For A Helen, swerves us around in metaphor and memory, shadows and sensual passings, echoing and enveloping imaginings. Indulging in what might look like a sort of celebrity standing, and celebrating one’s own feminine identity creates, here, a visual engagement with a new female form.

ALEXIS THEMISTOCLEOUS REPORTS- KYNTHIA LIVANIOU _ FOR A HELEN filep motwary blog 344

Initially, a presentation of these images came as a live piece of a performer, naked and, at the same time, adorned in projections of other female figures, whose images the artist had borrowed from Federico Fellini’s City of Women. Sensibly selecting moments of what she senses to be a “female” experience, in this project, she offers us a kind of celebration of this linkage of women’s bearing and story passing. The exhibition will be up until the end of October at PENINDAPLINENA Gallery in Limassol – Cyprus.

FILMMAKERS WANTED! | The Pan African Film Festival Announces Call for Submissions

The Pan African Film Festival Announces
Call for Submissions
Deadline for Entries Looming on October 15, 2012
Late Submissions Will Be Accepted Through December 1, 2012

LOS ANGELES – The Pan African Film Festival (PAFF) is ready to take movie goers on a cinematic journey with international film screenings from around the globe with the announcement of its call for submissions. The 21st annual PAFF will be held on February 7-18, 2013 in Los Angeles. The film festival is the nation’s largest and most prestigious Black film festival. Over the years, it has showcased films from all parts of the world, representing such countries as Angola, Austria, England, Bermuda, Canada, Egypt, Ethiopia, Brazil, Kenya, Mexico, South Africa, Nigeria, and of course, the United States. With the pulse on the international film market, PAFF has opened the minds of its audiences, and transported them to lands far away and back home again. “Over the years, the filmmakers from around the world have become more sophisticated in telling their stories,” says Asantewa Olatunji, the director of programming for PAFF.

Last year, more than 40,000 folks attended the festival, and were the first to see a string of highly-anticipated films, including Screen Gems’ “Think Like a Man,” based on the New York Times best-selling book by radio host/comic Steve Harvey. Directed by Tim Story and written by Keith Merryman and David A. Newman, the romantic comedy has grossed nearly 100 million dollars in its theatrical run, making it one of the highest grossing films with a predominantly African American cast. “This is certainly proof that Black audiences will respond to good stories and positive depictions of ourselves on the big screen,” added Olatunji.
Currently, PAFF is accepting submissions of independent features, shorts, narratives and documentary films made by or about people of African descent. Applications are available via the PAFF website at www.paff.org, by emailing ao@paff.org or calling (310) 337-4737.

ELIGIBILITY:
The PAFF is currently accepting applications for films and videos made by and/or about people of African descent. (Please note: the filmmaker(s) need not be of African or African American descent.) Films should preferably depict positive and realistic images and can be of any genre — drama, comedy, horror, adventure, animation, romance, science fiction, experimental, etc. PAFF accepts features and shorts both narrative and documentary. The film festival will accept submissions of works in progress; however, the final version of the film must be completed no later than January 5, 2013.

COMPETITION:
The PAFF competition categories are: Best Narrative Feature, Best Narrative Short, Best Documentary, Best Director — First Feature, plus, Audience Favorite Awards for Narrative Feature and Favorite Documentary. Films in competition must be copyrighted no earlier than 2012. With the exception of Audience Favorite Awards, all films are judged by industry professionals, selected by PAFF. In addition to competition awards, other programming and festival special prizes will be awarded.

SUBMISSION:
For information about the festival, submission procedures, fees and registration, visit www.paff.org or call 310. 337-4737. Submissions will be accepted from July 2, 2012 through October 15, 2012. Late submissions will be accepted until November 21, 2012 and December 1, 2012 for international entries. Official selection announcements will be made beginning December 15, 2012.

ABOUT THE PAN AFRICAN FILM FESTIVAL
Gearing up for its 21st anniversary, the Pan African Film and Arts Festival (PAFF), is America’s largest and most prestigious Black film and arts festival. Each year, it screens more than 150 films made by and/or about people of African descent from the United States, Africa, the Caribbean, South America, the South Pacific, Latin America, Europe and Canada. PAFF holds the distinction of being the largest Black History Month event in the country.

PAFF was founded in 1992 by award-winning actor Danny Glover (“The Color Purple,” “Lethal Weapon” movie franchise), Emmy Award-winning actress Ja’Net DuBois (best known for her role as Willona in the tv series, “Good Times”) and executive director, Ayuko Babu, an international legal, cultural and political consultant who specializes in African Affairs. PAFF is a non-profit corporation dedicated to the promotion of ethnic and racial respect and tolerance through the exhibit of films, art and creative expression.

The goal of PAFF is to present and showcase the broad spectrum of Black creative works, particularly those that reinforce positive images, help to destroy negative stereotypes and depict an expanded vision of the Black experience. PAFF believes film and art can lead to better understanding and foster communication between peoples of diverse cultures, races, and lifestyles, while at the same time, serve as a vehicle to initiate dialogue on the important issues of our times.

For more information, please visit www.paff.org or call (310) 337-4737.
