Auroville Food Festival within AVFF17

AVFF17 starts on 16th of Decmeber, and within it also the Auroville Food Festival will be going on.. This morning we had a chance to talk to Aneeta who is a main leading force behind it.
Although the idea on food festival was dormant for quite some years, it came forward at this moment at the time of Auroville Film Festival17 as a natural flow; in connection to make the festival better, richer, a true series of events for the community. Aneeta also mentions that food festival might happen next year, regardless that AVFF is a bianual event.
Team of dedicate avilians, along with volunteers came up with cuisine theme for each day, yet they strive that each dinner would be affordable to all members of the community regarding the source of sustenance, being price between 70 to max 100 Rps.

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.

Off the Cuff-47

In this OtC episode we have a relaxed approach to topics, exhausted after the storm of activities around the Auroville Film Festival, bringing us to contemplate and discuss a plaza for social gatherings, the atmosphere it creates, the advantages and limits to such ideas. We share our views on the what, why and how of information and communication; Auronet survey and feedback, why the radio shares information and not croissants and that a narrative report, with the creative or visionary aspects must be part of or accompany the technical report for it to become useful as well as other stuff.

Round Table Discussion on Human Unity
Sasikant and Suresh was joined by Kavitha and Marco (Artistic Director) and the roundtable started by discussing the film Girl Rising. Kavitha said that one reason she liked the film was because they used local village and city girls and paired them with local women journalist to capture their authentic voice and stories. The film depicts a number of women from the South/under developed countries and tells their stories. However the movie also supplies UN and other development data that highlights how we could quickly transform the South (and North-rich countries) by placing policy, money and infrastructure to assist women/girls. This path to development is faster and pragmatic, unlike the mythical ‘trickle down effect’ (putting most of the resources into the rich who will supposedly create weath for all via their investment – a Reagan and Thatcher – mythology that is still pursued today)
The panel and the audience also discussed The Sower…
