Auroville Film Festival #3

In this episode of The Auroville Film Festival, we talk to Tlaloc who is a part of the main team of AVFF. He moved to Auroville from Miami in the 70s and has been a part of various activities and projects in and around Auroville ever since. We discuss many aspects of the Auroville Film Festival including food, music and all the art installations, as well as the new advancements in the crowd funding process.

We also discuss the main categories for submission, Kino Cell, Kino Cabaret and about getting in touch with more funders for the festival to come alive.

Auroville Film Festival (#1)

This new segment features tête-à-têtes with Auroville Film Festival’s key members. The episodes constitute master classes, cinematic analysis, and behind the scenes of the upcoming biennale.

Mini Festival du Film

Lionel Tardif, ex and long-time Director-Curator of the Tours Cultural Centre (France) will present
a montage of several films (extracts of about 10 ‘each) which retraces the main stages of the first period of the cinema from the primitives (1895-1920) to the End of the mute (1930) through the successive schools: the burlesque, the Swedish school, German expressionism, the Russian school and the French avant-garde. These periods show how the grammar of the cinema was constituted, and the first great cinematographic ideas which came to the attention of the preoccupations which were also born in theater, painting, music, architecture. This telescoping will give its letters of nobility to the art of the image which is enriched by drawing from the other arts. Little by little the cinema becomes a total art.
The event was organized by The French Pavilion.

Off the Cuff-46

OTC’s random topics of the day: Gandhi Jayanti an official holiday but the radio team was busy and preparations for the Film festival, which is opening today, were on-going. Movies from all over the world were collected and it is an exciting moment for all.
Auroville was covered by the major Indian newspapers with positive articles regarding our cultural events and more. It’s amazing to see how productive Auroville is. Meanwhile Pour Tous Water has its first birthday and Wazo suggests that BCC & Finance needs a collective re-thinking to look at how to move to a service society and a Fraternal Economy. Renu gives a brief report on wildlife sightings and the magic relation with nature in the Green Belt concerning wasps and bees. The Millidacious play and how to balance the free access to events organized in Auroville and the people who come from outside and the costs faced by the artists?
