WEDNESDAY AT CAMERIMAGE!
Wednesday November 20th, 2013
Traditionally, on Wednesday, experienced filmmakers will give way to young cinematography adepts from all over the world who are competing for the Golden Tadpole Award.
Films from Students Etudes Competition are about searching for answers to the most important questions, dealing with the strongest feelings and difficult histories, facing life-choices, traveling into imaginary worlds or finding oneself in the centre of absurd situations. Screenings will be held in four blocks:
(9 a.m., 12, 6:15 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. in Opera Nova, Main Screening Room)
One film from the Main Competition will be shown between the etudes - Twelve Years a Slave, by Steve McQueen. It is another, after Hunger and Shame, shocking film made by this uncompromising director. This time, McQueen reaches for the factual story of Solomon Northup. The man, who was deceitfully kidnapped and sold into slavery, fought for twelve years to regain his freedom and dignity.
(2:15 p.m. Opera Nova, Main Screening Room)
On Wednesday, those who are interested in film criticism will have an opportunity to discuss it with Todd McCarthy, one of the greatest American film critics and a Jury Member in this year's Main Competition(1 p.m., Multikino, Screening room 7).
