Women's Voices Now (WVN) is a young not-for-profit social enterprise based in New York City. Their Mission is to empower women and give voice to the struggle for civil, economic, and political rights. Women's Voices from the Muslim World: A Short-Film Festival is their response to a clear developing interest in the area of women's rights in Muslim-majority countries and thus, a need to open and elevate an already complex and nuanced dialogue that reveals countless conflicts between religion and politics, tradition and modernity, and written versus practiced civil norms. The medium of film, specifically short-film available on the Internet, allows for the broadest possible reach into even the most remote areas of the world. This interest has become quite clear in the past months as they've collected films from over 35 countries and are currently being viewed in 133 countries around the world. Please visit them on-line to watch, rate and comment on their films here.
The London Short Film Festival takes place from 7th to 16th January and they've teamed up with Kino for a very special event - Borderlands. Over five days, and working within pre-designated areas on the far edgelands of South-East, East and North-East London, participants will venture into the city's furthermost parts to make short films. Drawing inspiration from Iain Sinclair's writings on London's Edgelands and films such as Andrew Kötting's GALLIVANT exploring the coast of Britain, the challenge aims to explore and document the psychogeography of the city's outer limits. The challenge will launch with a Kino production meeting on Saturday 8th January. Anybody wishing to take part in the event must attend the meeting. All films will be screened at a special Kino London event as part of the festival. Participants from all areas of filmmaking are encouraged to take part — from writers through to actors, camera operators and editors. Register to take part by emailing Laura
