Chicago Really Short Film Fest Announces 2005 Event Date, April 1 Deadline for Submission










Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 9, 2005 -

Maia Entertainent today announced the details of its second annual Chicago Really Short Film Fest, to take place on May 7, 2005 at the Abbey Pub (3420 W. Grace Chicago, Il 60618). Festival organizers also announced a call for filmmakers to submit their short pieces, emphasizing an April 1st deadline for consideration.

Presented by Maia Entertainent, ChicagoFilm.com, Image Union and eFilmCriticÂ’s Erik Childress, the Chicago Really Short Film Fest is unique in both its format and submission requirements. Submissions for the fest must be under 15 minutes and may include short films, animations, documentaries and music videos.

The one-night only film festival is interspersed with two bands (TRS-80, Project .44) and sketch comedy (The Patel Leads) and the majority of the films submitted for the event consist of low-budget, independent and underground films from both local and national talent.

“We started this festival as a way to screen some of our favorite local filmmakers and to throw a really good party at a great venue. We were amazed at the high quality of submissions we got last year from all over the country and the support we got from both the independent filmmaking community and a really responsive audience. We had a packed house last year and a solid lineup of films and our goal is to go even further than that this year,” said festival founder Rick Ramirez.

Submitting filmmakers are eligible for consideration for several awards and prizes: The Audience Choice Award, the ChicagoFilm Go Shorty Awards, the eFilmCritic Award, and all event participants are in consideration for a paid screening on WTTW Channel 11Â’s award-winning film show Image Union.

“We really go all out to make sure that all our accepted filmmakers receive a larger audience and more exposure than they might be able to get anywhere else,” said Ramirez.

“Last year three of the films from the festival ended up being screened on Image Union, where not only were the filmmakers compensated for their films, but they were able to expose their work to a large, appreciative new audience of Chicagoland film fans. Our goal with this festival is definitely to put on a great show, but also to discover and expose the work of talented short filmmakers.”

The 2005 Chicago Really Short Film Fest Submission date is rapidly approaching. The regular submission deadline is April 1st. The submission fee is $ 15 and $ 5 off per additional film, with discounts available for student filmmakers. Late registration goes until April 7th, with a $ 50 fee for late submission.

‘In Burnt Norton’ from Eighty-Watt Cinema to Screen August 1st at Anthology Film Archives as part of the NewFilmmakers Series











New York, NY (PRWEB) July 23, 2007

The latest short film from Eighty-Watt Cinema, ‘In Burnt Norton,’ (2006, 14 minutes, 8mm) will screen on August 1st in New York City at Anthology Film Archives as part of the NewFilmmakers series. The short film program begins at 7 p.m. and ‘Norton’ will be the third film to screen. A feature program will follow at 8 p.m. and 9 p.m.. Anthology Film Archives is located at 32 2nd Avenue (and E. 2nd Street) in New York City and tickets are $ 5.

The project, written and directed by Joshua Dilworth, tells the story of Professor Stephen Marvigelo, whose journey outside the classroom blurs the line between science fiction and nonfiction. It is a film about “solving the most difficult equations in life, one plane of existence at a time,” says Dilworth. ‘In Burnt Norton’ is the third short in as many years from Dilworth and executive producer Nicholas White’s production shingle, and centers around Marvigelo’s attempts to reunite with his wife and family after a seemingly random event defies the most basic laws of nature.

A New York City Institution

The Archives were created in 1969 when Jerome Hill, P. Adams Sitney, Peter Kubelka, Stan Brakhage, and Jonas Mekas drew up plans to create a museum dedicated to the vision of the art of cinema as guided by the avant-garde sensibility. NewFilmmakers is the longest-running screening series in New York and one of the longest in the nation. Films such as ‘The Blair Witch Project’ and ‘Too Much Sleep’ got their start via NewFilmmakers. And in addition to being a public movie theater, Anthology is a film museum, archive, research library, and art gallery. After 35 years in existence, Anthology remains the only non-profit organization of this type in New York.

“We’re really pleased to be screening ‘In Burnt Norton,’” said producer and curator Barney Oldfield of NewFilmmakers. “Visually it’s completely unique, and overall the piece is a great example of the kind of work we strive to highlight as the among very best work that’s being done in independent film right now.”

Pioneering A New Workflow For Budget-Minded Independents

Taking advantage of an increasingly viable workflow option for independent filmmakers, Dilworth shot ‘Norton’ on Super-8mm filmstock and transferred to DVCPro HD videotape using a Thompson Grassvalley Spirit film scanner with DaVinci color correction at Technicolor in New York City. This unique process produced an arresting result.

“If you want to shoot film, this is a great way to go,” says Dilworth, who has 35mm, 16mm and 8mm films under his belt. “It’s the best of two worlds, both high and low-tech.”

At a time when shooting digitally has become much more cost-effective, originating on film is increasingly rare in the independent world. “I’m so happy that Kodak and other companies haven’t abandoned Super-8mm,” said executive producer White. “There’s a viable community of experimental filmmakers around this format, and that’s good for everyone. It makes it easier to fit a story to a budget appropriately. It’s one more tool for a community that typically doesn’t have many.”

The unique look of the film is more visibly SD than HD, but the grain structure remains true, and the remarkable latitude of newer Super-8mm stocks made shooting the format a far less nerve-racking experience for the filmmakers. Dilworth used modified widescreen cameras from Pro8mm in Burbank, California and Kodak Vision2 200T and 400T film. The final product also boasts an uncharacteristically smooth image, due to the stability of the cameras as well as the transfer gate.

About Eighty-Watt Cinema:

Eighty-Watt Cinema, LLC was founded in 2002 by Joshua Dilworth and Nicholas White. Located in New York City, Eighty-Watt Cinema has produced several dramatic and comedic shorts, and these projects have screened at film festivals and theaters nationwide. The company is currently prepping its first feature film.

About NewFilmmakers:

The NewFilmmakers series began in 1998 at Anthology Film Archives as a local screening series. Over the past nine years NewFilmmakers has attracted national and international attention and has screened over 500 feature and 1600 short films. NewFilmmakers screens every Wednesday at Anthology Film Archives, one of the leading theaters in New York City. This unique series gives filmmakers the opportunity to screen their work for local audiences and to promote themselves to national distributors.

Most traditionalists believe that Valentines day, Feb.14th in the United States should include Roses, and thats great news for the Colombian Flower industry.

However, as the younger generation becomes increasingly  difficult to market to flower growers are looking at more and more innovative ways to reach the Gen Y market.  A strong example of this was this weeks gala opening of Valentines day, a film staring Julia Roberts. The film set around Valentines day and the love and loss of love created a golden marketing opportunity for the Colombian flower growers as the theme of flowers was a constant throughout the film.

Growers, like Benchmark Growers located in Miami took the lead with Colombian Land of flowers, a marketing brand of Asocolflores ( Colombian Flower exporters) joined with Warner Bros to create a floral showcase at the Premier gala in Los Angeles on Feb.08th at the famous Manns Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Blvd.

The Roses, like the hundreds of Hollywood who’s who, celebrities and media created a highly visual red carpet for the thousands of fans looking for just a glimpse of their favorite celebrity. Demi Moore with hundreds of Colombian roses, Julia Roberts with a large Colombian Rose heart, all a marketing success for the Colombian and for the flower industry in general.

International marketing expert Richard Griffiths stated” This type of marketing is simple in its execution yet the impact is without measure. My role is to show the world the beauty of Colombian Roses, the scope and size of Colombian roses and really the importance of this industry to the South American Nation. I have always believed in the power of Hollywood and when given a chance to link with Hollywood it is without question a winning combination.

The press release for the event reached over 14,000,000 people below are a few elements of the press release

Fresh-cut from the Bogota Savannah, Colombian Roses lined the way as some of Hollywood´s top celebrities came out for the World Premier of Valentines Day, The Star Studded cast included among others, Julia Roberts and Ashton Kutcher.

As part of the program launched by Asocolflores and Ethical Trade aimed at creation of strong ties with the Hollywood film Industry, over 5,000 Colombian red roses were handed out to excited fans lining the streets of Hollywood blvd. hoping to get a glimpse of celebrities such as Julia Roberts, Patrick Dempsey, Shirley MacLean, Jessica Biel and the host of celebrity guests.

Benchmark growers proudly supported the premier with a large quantity of Pink Intuition roses, a specialty rose grown exclusively by Benchmark in Colombia, South America. The Rose, a hallmark variety of the group is distinctive due to its size, coloring and exclusivity. Marketing manager Gabriel Vega Stated, “We felt that a film honoring our most important holiday deserved one of our most unique and beautiful rose varieties”

The film directed by Frank Marshall, who is known for such hits as Pretty Women, put together a historic ensemble cast such as Julia Roberts, Ashton Kutcher, Shirley Mclean, Jamie Foxx, Jessica Biel and Patrick Dempsey.

Benchmark Growers created a partnership with the film premier to highlight the beauty of Colombian Roses, for the film star studded premier and after party. President of Benchmark Growers Herbert Jordan stated “We are also happy to support Hollywood, especially when they have flowers in major motion pictures. This relationship allows us to highlight specialty roses such as the Pink Intuition. We look forward to the films great commercial success, hope to see more and more of our flowers in Hollywood productions”.

The film is set for national release on Feb.12th, 2010

As the world tunes in, and turns out far to much information for one to really capture its nice to see the stars with golden smiles like Julia Roberts can make people see the world and products in a different light. Will more pink intuition roses sell this year for Valentines day, who knows, but one thing is for sure, the Rose was given star power last week, and time will tell if this reflects to the consumer
