artscalendar.co.nz newsletter

Greetings from artscalendar.co.nz

Italian Film Festival This is the Festival's 9th year and is screening more films this year than any other. There will also be the inaugural Italian film lecture evenings in Auckland and Wellington. Dr. Bernadette Luciano, Head of Italian Studies, Auckland University, and writer of numerous books and papers on Italian film, presents the series over three evenings.

This year, besides having Italian classics back in the festival, there is the latest work of Silvio Soldini, director of the year 2000 NZ box-office success 'Bread and Tulips'. His new film 'Agata and the Storm' also heralds the return of the star of 'Bread and Tulips' Licia Maglietta, 'Don't move', the directorial debut for Sergio Castellito, is fresh from screening in competition in Cannes, starring Penelope Cruz, who has been compared to Charlize Theron (Monster) for the transformation she undergoes and the traumas she endured during the making of this film.

The 2004 Festival also brings the return of directors Pupi Avati (Christmas Present) with 'The heart elsewhere', Gabriele Muccino (Last Kiss) with 'Remember me' and Ferzan Ozpetek (Ignorant Fairies) with 'Facing windows'. All major successes, both in Italy and the rest of Europe.

Beginning in Auckland on October 6 at the Rialto Cinemas, the Festival will also be travelling to Wellington (20 Oct - 3 Nov), Christchurch (27 Oct - 10 Nov), Dunedin (10 - 17 Nov), Nelson (17 - 24 Nov), Napier (24 Nov - 1 Dec) and Hamilton (1 - 8 Dec).

We have some film festival tickets to give away - just answer this simple question: Who is the director and lead actor in 'Don't move (Non to muovere)'?

Email your answers to info@artscalendar.co.nz and you could win a double pass to one of the Italian Film Festival movies.

Eastern Translation: 4 -17 Oct 'Eastern Translation' is the first ever collective Asian art exhibition by immigrant youth artists from numerous Eastern backgrounds to take place in New Zealand. Artists include Juria Chuah, Kelvin Soh and Gary Yong (Malaysia), Vicky Hsu (Taiwan), Ryuzo Nishida, Akinobu Uchimoto and Kosuke Onishi (Japan). The show is about cultural identity and the fusion of eastern and western cultures.

Ranging from painting and sculpture, to photography and video, 'Eastern Translation' aims to give a visual insight of Asian culture to all New Zealanders, and show the positive impacts and exciting influences that people of Asian descent are making not only to this country's multicultural society, but also to its dynamic creative industries sector.

Exhibition at the Odeon Lounge, Mt Eden, Auckland between 4 & 17 October.

Listing Events We thought this might be a good opportunity to alert our subscribers/promoters of the process when listing events through the artscalendar website. Once you have submitted your event, the event will still not be available to view on the website. Your event will go into a 'pending' list, where we will activate the event within 24-48 business hours, this can sometimes take a little longer. After this has been activated, then the event will become live on the website. If you have an urgent event please email us.

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces up, snow is exhilarating; there is no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather. John Ruskin
