Cinema St Louis Presents
The third edition of Cinema at Citygarden – a co-presentation of Cinema St. Louis (CSL) and Gateway Foundation – blossoms beginning May 24. Works that incorporate nature as a key element by St. Louis-area filmmakers will screen through the end of June on the video wall.
The sixth annual edition of QFest St. Louis will be held Thursday, June 6 - Sunday, June 9, 2013, in Webster University's Moore Auditorium. QFest uses the art of contemporary gay cinema to spotlight the diversity and inherent complexities of living an alternative lifestyle in today's society. This year's event will be more than fabulous - it will be simply DIVINE!
The Fifth Annual Classic French Film Festival, presented by TV5MONDE, celebrates St. Louis’ Gallic heritage and France’s cinematic legacy. The fest is annually highlighted by significant feature restorations. This year’s restored films include Julien Duvivier’s “The Ladies’ Paradise,” Claude Lelouch’s “A Man and a Woman,” Pierre Etaix’s “Yoyo” and “The Great Love” (plus two shorts), and Claude Sautet’s “Max and the Junkmen.” The festival again explores France’s major contributions to the silent era and pairs the works with live music: The new-music ensemble Hearding Cats Collective performs with a selection of five avant-garde shorts, and the Poor People of Paris accompany “The Ladies’ Paradise.”
The St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase (SLFS), an annual presentation of the nonprofit Cinema St. Louis, serves as the area's primary venue for films made by local artists. With advances in affordable digital filmmaking, more and more movies are being made in St. Louis and environs, but opportunities for moviegoers to see that work are scarce, because few of the films ever screen commercially.
Cinema St. Louis introduces SLIFF/Kids, the First Annual St. Louis International Children’s Film Festival, presented by PNC Arts Alive. With a half-dozen presenting partners, CSL will offer film programs, camps, and a workshop as part of SLIFF/Kids, which is held from July 26-Aug. 4, 2013. A total of 14 film programs will be screened on the fest’s two weekends (July 26-28 and Aug. 2-4) at Webster University, the St. Louis Public Library, the Missouri History Museum, and Washington University.
As part of the First Annual St. Louis International Children’s Film Festival (July 26-Aug. 4), Cinema St. Louis and the St. Louis Public Library are presenting two Filmmaking Camps from Monday-Friday, July 29-Aug. 2, at the Central Library’s new Creative Experience space. The first camp, held from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. each day, will give students the opportunity to collaborate on a live-action short. During the second camp, held from 1:30-4:30 p.m. each day, students will collaborate on an animated short.
The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts and Cinema St. Louis invite filmmakers to respond to the subject of color in conjunction with the exhibition Donald Judd: The Multicolored Works, on view May 10, 2013 – Jan. 4, 2014.
To participate, filmmakers should send submissions of short, original silent films that engage with color. The winning short will be featured at a Pulitzer event, and the filmmaker will receive a prize of $500. There is no entry fee. Download the entry form here.
