Cineclube Animassa (Ongoing)
Cineclube Animassa is a film club focused on screening animated films from all over the world. It takes place at RV Cultura & Arte, an art gallery/comic shop located at Salvador, Brazil. In 2018, the film club is returning for its third season, with monthly screenings – always free of charge -, from March to December. For this season, besides animated short films, we’ll also accept animated feature films.
Moss Icon (Ongoing)
Moss Index is a bi-annual screening series that shows films/videos about looking at nature (“nature”), interacting with the environment (“the environment”), and investigating the border regions where the human and the not-human intersect. An invitation to look at the environment might usually imply a certain political goal, but we are interested in starting further back: decolonizing our ways of seeing and imagining alternative socio-ecologies. Plant-vision, inter-species encounters, unmapping, wet thresholds. This is not a green film fest. Moss Index is curated by a group of filmmakers and artists, based in San Francisco. Programs are selected from newly submitted and/or previously submitted work. Screenings take place at Artists’ Television Access in San Francisco.

Underappreciated Moviemakers Festival 7/1/18
A festival intended to pressent works by moviemakers who’ve been making movies for at least 30 years without receiving much attention; have a large body of work that you don’t get credit for; have seen younger, richer friends imitate them & go on to well-paying gigs at places where the original is more likely to be confronted by security forces wondering why you’re there; who’re still controversial after decades of dedicated work; who find it almost impossible for you to get a screening anywhere; & whose work almost never written about.
