The Meters Film Festival (MIFF) is a not for profit organisation that has been set up to give audiences a chance to see films that might not be available in other local public venues, while also inspiring local film makers with access to workshops led by leading industry experts.

It is the mission of the MIFF to support the work of talented and dedicated filmmakers and to share their work so that it may inspire, educate, and transform youth and professionals in the youth work field. Our main target group is the generation of developing young filmmakers but we are very delighted at every entry. The essence of this success is to motivate common activity among young inland filmmakers and other international organizations taking part in the audiovisual program.

High Desert International Film Festival 2016 Official selection | Solar Love

Solar Love (2015)
Official selection
High Desert International Film Festival
From 26th to 29th May
Pahrump (Nevada)
United States

 

 

2006 marked the very beginning of the journey to this, the 10th season of the High Desert International Film Festival and, from the start, the focus has been on supporting a sense of community.

The heart of this festival was, is now, and will always be, to celebrate the talents of the international, independent, filmmaking community; in support of those visionaries who might be in search of an audience, funding for a project, collaboration with peers or validation of their art.

 

hdiff-ltr-logo

 

An artist simply cannot work in a vacuum. There must be an audience to applaud and encourage their efforts or perhaps to let them know that they should take a step back or maybe even start over.

Every season we throw a party and invite the neighbors—and they join us—from all over the world. Consider this your invitation.

3rd International Festival Cinema Libre | Hamburg (Germany)

“The White Widow” (2015) is selected for the 3rd International Festival Cinema Libre of Hamburg (Germany) which will held from 28th to 30th August 2015.

 

 

Cinema libre differs from the cinema made by industry, television, business, entertainment, motion picture, technology and money. Free from rigths, under licence art libre or creative commons, it is shared and can be diverted without tethers.

To be independent from the film industry, movies can be self-produced, crowd funded and/or be produced with no money at all. In the last decade, digital technologies extended the space of cinema libre and enabled everyone to take back this way of expression swallowed up by industry for decades.

Analogue formats are also coming back as a way to explore and experiment things thanks to alternatives and shared laboratories which are growing up everywhere in the world.

Cinema libre has something to say, something to shout about. It does not pay attention to public expectations. It is neither a job, nor a business. It does not look for a return on investment. It ignores codes, formats and fashions. It is a cinema of experiments and it is often based on DIY, sharing, lightness and freshness.

Cinema libre places poetry before technique, life before show, and facts before effects. It is the antidote to the dominant and standardized pictures, which shape us.
