This weekly selection was about time and is about time. Time that flies by, time that is lost, time that is precious, time that is coming.

Today is a sunny day, so it is with joy that I present our weekly selection (the sun has a real impact on me). Not that I usually present it without joy, but today I want to use this word because it is beautiful and makes me even more happy. JOY. Here, one more time.

Last week, I jumped on the volunteering train once again with Interfilm Festival. This event, held in seven different locations (including Babylon Kino, Passage Kino, Central Kino, Volksbühne) presents over 500 short films from around the world during an entire week. One of the most international cinematic experiences in Berlin.

In June 2012 filmosophie initiated the movie blog filmosophie.com where her co-bloggers and her write about films from a decidedly personal perspective. Since film is oftentimes perceived emotionally, she doesn’t believe in objective criticism. Writing for several websites as well as the AGM Magazine filmosophie is especially interested in the topics of gender and religion. Once a week she works in a project for immigrant families, most of them from Palestine and other Arabic countries. She is currently undergoing training to become a drama educator and dreams of combining her practical work with her passion for movies and cinema.

The Wall Street Journal lists Arin Crumley among the top 20 new media moguls. His first film, Four Eyed Monsters, won the Sundance Channel Audience Award, was nominated for two Spirit Awards and was the first feature-length film to air on YouTube. Millions of viewers have engaged across multiple mediums with the project, which began building audience through the release of a popular online video series and then booked film screenings across the world using the first location-based request system for independent film. The project evolved into an interactive experience when it began re-mixing footage created by the audience into the series itself. Continuing his exploration into new media Arin also co-founded a research and development project called From Here to Awesome, which invited filmmakers to create the future models of collaboration, funding, production and distribution. Recently Arin also co-founded OpenIndie.com, which is designing a new community distribution model for booking screenings of independent films and exploring ways to put revenue directly into filmmakers pockets.
Our many thanks to Arin for this one-off post.
