Greetings from Brooklyn, New York.This is a friendly reminder to let you know that the CALL FOR ENTRIES for Mono No Aware IV has a deadline soon approaching.We are looking for film works which incorporate live additional elements, and performance work that incorporates cinematic elements by November 5th 2010.There is NO ENTRY FEE. Information on how to enter your work can be found here along with images from last years event.Brief description below. Feel free to forward this message onto those you know who might have interest in cinema/performance.MONO NO AWARE IS AN INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION OF EXPANDED CINEMA PERFORMANCES. TAKING IT'S NAME FROM MOTOORI NORINAGA’S EXPRESSION MEANING "THE PATHOS OF THINGS". THE CONCEPT IS TO PRESENT WORK WHICH IS EPHEMERAL IN NATURE WITH AN EMPHASIS ON THE CINEMATIC EXPERIENCE. ALL OF PRESENTED WORK CONSISTS OF ONE PART FILM PROJECTION AND ONE PART LIVE PERFORMANCE ELEMENT. MONO NO AWARE IS OPEN TO ANY PERSON OR GROUP OF ARTISTS / MUSICIANS / PERSONS MAKING WORK ON 16MM OR SUPER 8MM FILM WHICH INCORPORATES LIVE PERFORMANCE OR VICE VERSA. NO DIGITAL VIDEO.ADVANCEMENTS IN TECHNOLOGY HAVE ALTERED THE AUDIENCE EXPERIENCE AND CONNECTIVITY ASSOCIATED WITH THE CINEMA. WEBSITES, TELEVISION, AND EVEN CELL PHONES HAVE BECOME AN EVERYDAY VEHICLE FOR FILM AND VIDEO. WE BELIEVE THERE IS A MAGIC IN SEEING THE FILM PRINT. THERE IS A PRESENCE A POET HAS READING HIS/HER OWN WRITING. THERE IS A FEELING THAT RESONATES IN YOUR CHEST WHEN YOU SEE A MUSICIAN PERFORM LIVE. IN THE SPIRIT OF THE FESTIVAL WE ASK THAT THE ARTISTS NOT MAKE VIDEO COPIES OF THE PERFORMANCE. EACH MONO NO AWARE PERFORMANCE IS ONE OF A KIND, SOME PARTICIPANTS HAVE GONE SO FAR AS TO DESTROY THE FILM WORK AFTER ITS FIRST RUN AT THE EVENT.The event will take place on Sunday November 28th 2010, 5PM @ Lumenhouse in Brooklyn, NY. There is no cover charge.Images from previous years, past programs, participants, & more information can be found at our website: WWW.MONONOAWAREFILM.COMIn addition, we are offering Super 8mm and 16mm filmmaking workshops locally, made possible by Kodak & PAC Lab NYC. Thank you for your time, we hope to see you in November.*** If for some reason you feel you are receiving this message in error, or have received it in duplicate, we apologize.
