FIXED FRAME FILM FESTIVAL (article first published : 2007-11-8)

The KwaCinema group of film enthusiasts will host the finals of their One Minute Fixed Frame Film Festival at the Kwasuka Cutting Edge Theatre on November 9 at 20h00.

“A few months ago a brief was issued by those filmic folks at the KwaCinema calling upon film/video makers and eager participants to wrack their brains, emancipate their imaginations and come up with an array of astounding short films that would show the city and its inhabitants exactly what the film/video making community is truly capable of,” says KwaCinema’s Karen Logan.

Finally the results are on their way to the Kwasuka - to be presented on the big screen. A panel of judges comprising Peter Machen, Monica Rorvik, Niren Tolsi and Andrew Verster will select the winning films. An Audience Vote will also be taken and prizes will be awarded shortly after the screening.

“We are delighted to have Collective Film and Video and Video Moghul come on board with some fantastic prizes,” says Karen Logan.1st prize includes R1,000 worth of services from Collective Film and Video in Morningside, with which the winner will be able to hire camera equipment and/or make use of their post-production facilities, as well as a video contract from the legendary Video Moghul. Video Moghul has the widest range of foreign and art house movies in Durban and is an ideal source of inspiration for up and coming film-makers. Exciting prizes are also lined up for 2nd place and the Audience Vote.

Festival organizers Karen Logan and Neil Coppen are extremely excited and encouraged by the response, with film enthusiasts from all walks of life and from as far afield as Mumbai India having risen to meet the challenge. An eclectic, diverse viewing experience is guaranteed.

The rules and regulations stipulated were as follows: Any one could enter - Amateur, Aspirant, Pro or Auteur; The duration of the films had to be no longer than 60 seconds; The Frame (angle) of the camera was not allowed to move; Any theme, subject, genre was allowed and any medium (phone camera's etc) could be used to create the FFF.

“So pull in and see the world through the inspired eyes and minds of some of Durbs' most exciting film makers. Tell all your friends,” says Neil Coppen. “Grab yourself some popcorn, kick your feet up and get ready to watch some fresh out-the-box films before joining us as we celebrate this Durban first to the mash-up tunes of Veranda Panda (aka Liam Magner).”

Tickets R15 at the door with complimentary whisky courtesy of Bushmills on arrival. The popcorn machine will be on and the bar will be open. For more information, contact Neil Coppen and Karen Logan on kwacinema@gmail.com
