2010 FESTIVAL OF (IN)APPROPRIATION

CALL FOR ENTRIES:

Los Angeles Filmforum invites film and videomakers to take part in the 2010 FESTIVAL OF (IN)APPROPRIATION.

WHO: All film and videomakers
WHAT: Call for entries for the Festival of (In)appropriation
WHEN: Entries must be received by May 1, 2010.
WHERE: Send submissions to Jaimie Baron, 10480 National Blvd. #308, Los Angeles, CA 90034
PRESENTED BY: Los Angeles Filmforum

Santa suit in July? Brussel sprouts for breakfast? Cat in the bathtub? Fish on a bicycle? All of these things are possible, but they are just "not done." At least, in our view, not often enough! Of course, the notion of what is "appropriate" always depends on context - the right time and the right place. What is permissible in one context may not be so in another. Indeed, the "inappropriate" is all about what is in the "wrong" place and at the "wrong" time, which is exactly where we think it should be. Mash-up, machinima, remix, collage, compilation, found footage, d├ętournement - these terms all refer to films and videos that tear materials from one (con)text and place them in another, constantly questioning the limits of what is "appropriate." At its best, this act of (in)appropriation may produce revelation that leads viewers to reconsider the relationship between past and present, here and there, truth and lie, intention and subversion.

With that idea in mind, Los Angeles Filmforum invites submissions for the 2010 Festival of (In)appropriation - our third festival! We are open to all works that appropriate film or video footage and repurpose it in "inappropriate" ways. We will consider both films and videos, including works that are made up entirely of found footage and those that only use small segments of appropriated material. We are especially interested in - but certainly not limited to - films that put history into question and films that explore the ways in which digital technologies are reconstructing our relationship to preexisting audiovisual materials. Particular consideration will be given to films that repurpose materials in an inventive way and to films that are under 20 minutes long. We will only accept work finished in 2008 or later.

The Festival of (In)appropriation will take place at in Fall 2010, specific date TBA.
Curated by Jaimie Baron and Madeleine Gallagher.

Guidelines:
. Submission deadline: May 15, 2010
. Please send all submissions in DVD format to: Jaimie Baron, 10480 National Blvd. #308, Los Angeles, CA 90034
. Submissions must be 20 minutes or less and must contain some form of "(in)appropriation."
. Acceptable submission formats: DVD and VHS
. Acceptable exhibition formats: mini-DV, DV-Cam, 16mm film, 35mm film, DVD (but discouraged, since DVD is not a reliable projection medium).

. Please include: title, filmmaker, running time, a 30-word or less synopsis, and contact information (phone and email).

. No submission fee, but please send only good films ?

Los Angeles Filmforum is the city's longest-running organization dedicated to weekly screenings of experimental film and video art, documentaries, and experimental animation.

The Harimaya Bridge Screening

THE HARIMAYA BRIDGE will open this Friday, March 26th at the Laemmle Music Hall 3 movie theater in Beverly Hills.

THE HARIMAYA BRIDGE stars Ben Guillory, Saki Takaoka, Misa Shimizu, and Danny Glover (who also executive produced it). It is a drama about an American man who must go to rural Japan after the sudden death of his estranged son there, and the secrets he discovers that his son left behind. The film had a nationwide theatrical release in Japan last summer, and is now in limited release in U.S. movie theaters.

Aside from the strong critical reviews the film has received in both the United States and Japan, there are a number of things that speak to THE HARIMAYA BRIDGE being a unique project. It is the first feature film made by an African American filmmaker in Japan. It is one of only a handful of films written and directed by a foreigner to be financed, produced, and distributed in the Japanese film industry. And it might be one of the only onscreen dramas that depict African American characters in East Asia.

The film was inspired by my experiences in Japan that began when I first went there in 1992 on the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program. I have been back to Japan every year since my JET tenure ended in 1993, and I have maintained deep ties with the country in numerous ways.

The film will have a one-week run starting this Friday at the Laemmle Music Hall 3, located at 9036 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills, CA 90211.

You can learn even more about it at our official website: http://www.theharimayabridge.com
