Attending the first non-profit film festival from Public Interest Pictures

The greatest challenge for a non-profit is to get the message out. And often the best way to do that is with a video shared on the social networks and with supporters – with the hope it goes viral 다운로드. But creating one can cost more than a non-profit budget can spare.

A problem the production company, Public Interest Pictures, solved for eight Los Angeles non-profits with the Non-Profit Short Film Festival 다운로드. They brought together eight teams of professional filmmakers to create short inspirational videos for each non-profit, and in just 48 hours the results were spectacular onekey ghost.

I attended the film festival in downtown Los Angeles – at the HUB LA – and walked away motivated to learn more about each non-profit 영화 간첩 다운로드. My favorite was the glean club, Food Forward, that organizes volunteer parties to pick fruit in the city 다운로드. Southern California is a former agricultural powerhouse and the ruins of that empire are everywhere. Every neighborhood has a lemon and orange tree with a sprinkling of avocado, persimmon, grapefruit, and more 윈도우 10 pe iso 다운로드.

A better explanation is in the video from the film festival:

 

The soundtrack is great with the song Talking Heads – This Must Be The Place adobe flash cs4 다운로드. But, the winner for best video goes to local beekeepers and lovebirds – Honey Love:

 

 

There are six more videos from the festival each with a great message 다운로드. They should do wonders for each group when shared on the internet. And for those in attendance the event was great fun, with the crowd hooting and hollering for each non-profit 포켓몬 기라티나 다운로드. Plus, many of those filmed in the videos were there – including the latino family from the children’s video below. The little girl was so excited to see herself on the big screen 다운로드.

It was an inspirational event from Public Interest Pictures – who has made previous social interest films Hacking Democracy and Broadcast Blues – and I hope they continue it next year.

Have you seen Sneakers? – The classic spy thriller starring Robert Redford

I can’t imagine a better way to introduce the movie, Sneakers:

It’s hard for me to choose a favorite Sneakers character—there so many great ones 다운로드. Even the movie’s secondary players are rendered in just enough detail to give them dimension: I love the pretentiousness of Janek, the mathematician who builds the decryption device; the unctuousness (want a cappuccino?) of Dick Gordon, the mustachioed Cosmo crony; and the boorishness of Dr 아마존 앱스토어 다운로드. Werner Brandes, played to the hilt by the always excellent Stephen Tobolowsky.

But even that does not go far enough. Robert Redford plays his role superbly, rivaling and surpassing George Clooney in Oceans Eleven 프린텍 라벨메이커 다운로드. Then there is the blind man who solves puzzles, River Phoenix as the shy computer genius, Sidney Poitier as a former-CIA agent, and who can forget Dan Aykroyd’s conspiracy theories svn connector?

If this interests you a little, if you like Oceans Eleven and caper films, or delight in well written, directed, and acted films then I demand you go see this movie 국민 보건 체조. You won’t be disappointed. If you are, come back and yell at me, I’m that confident of success.

Sneakers is a true delight and you will be an admirer within the first quietly suspenseful minutes 다운로드.

And if you’re obsession goes a bit deeper, here is Slate’s compulsive coverage of the movie’s 20th anniversary:

And, listen them discuss it in the Gabfest (the 2nd topic) 다운로드.
