Leipzig Events: Call for short films for July “wandering festival” at Leipzig west

in Arts/Culture / Entertainment by

Next July 18, a “wandering film festival” will take place in Leutzsch, a district on the west side of Leipzig. The “wandering” part means that people will go from place to place across the district watching the short films selected for the event. It’s called Kurzfilmwanderung, a non-commercial alternative fest that apparently has happened before in Leipzig and elsewhere in Germany. If interested in participating, you’ve got 4 weeks from today to come up with a short film, of any genre or subject, of up to 20 minutes. The deadline to submit is Saturday, June 20. For participation forms and more info, visit https://kurzfilmwanderungleipzig.wordpress.com.

And I hope, if you’re in Leipzig or nearby, that you do make it to the open mic as well. It tends to get quite interesting.

A filmlover gets over Johnny with Viggo (with video parodies for help)

in Arts/Culture / Entertainment by

By Stewart Tunnicliff As a fan of films, people always ask me which actors I really like. Usually they have to act in diverse projects, not shy away from blockbusters or smaller films, spice it up with accents, and not fall for typecasting. We have all been disappointed by great actors who start well and…
