Isola Cinema 2006 is at an end

Wednesday, May 31st, 2006

With bitter sweetness we realize that our festival is over, we’ve done it again. For a while, this means a stop to our daily projections in Izola and nightly gatherings at the town’s lighthouse…We would like to thank all of you, who’ve been with us during these days. We have all especially enjoyed the company of our guests(on the pic). You can find a little bit of what went on in the Isola Cinema web gallery. See you on Isola Cinema 2007!

“Longing” for Valeska Grisebach’s films

Monday, May 29th, 2006

for by Oana Stopariu

With her latest film Valeska Grisebach moved further from clichés somehow expected from a young director. A second film that still avoids mainstream entertainment, a judgement already stated about her work and artisitic vision.

Creativity by appropiation of an entire atmosphere created around a subject, this is how William E. Jones is not only presenting and reinventing the subject of his films, but chunks down from elitist concepts to simple principles as values of life. Maybe this is why for a while his work might have seemed “simple videoish”. » read more

Why is Bill Daniel important?

Sunday, May 28th, 2006

for by Oana Stupariu

Each scene of his films could be excellent photo, black and white format which simply takes art in the most unexpected places. And as it has been proved that 80% of human kind is strongly visual and thinks in images, by instinct Bill Daniel is interested both in the traditional accuracy of the documentary photography and inner pictures of his characteres. Who is Bozo Texino? leads to inner strengh and freedom, losing prejudice and artificial conventions, but independence has a price to be paid and gets its followers to marginal contexts. » read more

Isola Cinema 03 took off!

Saturday, May 27th, 2006

Now it’s official. The festival has been launched and if there’s one thing we can’t complain about, it’s the weather. It was actually warm, can you believe it? No blankets or any other stuff, to make up for the dropping degrees. As the preparations have taken place in the last several days, it’s probably best you visit our web gallery (it’s on the Slovene page, but we’ll let the pics speak for themselves) to check the happenings and the team effort yourselves. » read more
