“In September (or october) Edgeryders are building a European event on community-owned digital assets in Matera” - sound’s like this is a perfect timing for a Creative Commons Film Festival.
Here what it is:
Film Festival LICENSED CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 (Attribution-Nonc ommercial-Share Alike), under the premise COPY THIS FESTIVAL. Meaning that even the festival itself can be downloaded, copied, remixed, distributed and projected for free anywhere in the world. It was born in Barcelona in 2010 BccN, and since then was copied around the world with a support of BccN team. To promote this copies, BccN provides the content, the program, movies, the recording of the pannels, contacts, master of the poster, festival’s image…etc.
Last year I have been to Nordic Edition of the fest in Malmo, organized by CC filmmaker Hanna Skold, and I have started thinking about the Matera edition. I’m ready to start working on it.
Based on our conversation with Emmanuelle, Picianello area sounds great for screenings, as well as unMon, Fuccine de l’Eco, Casa Netural if up for it, caves on the other side of the Gravina, and many many more. During Nordic Edition venues which screened the movies could add themselves to the festival map, we’ll do the same.
Hanna can help with experience from the Nordic CC fest organization, content for interesting film/media workshops, and she is also a friend, and would be great to have her at the fest either physically in Matera, or over remotely over hangouts. We’ll see who else around the world is up for making one at the same time with us, so we can connect over hangout for a chat and place Matera on the map of global events, as @Marc did with Global Arduino Day at unMon.
More overlaps: - Max Valentine from Fabel Kommunikation, as far as I understand also took a part in organizing the last year edition. @Nadia, would make sense to ping him to see if he want’s to take a part in some way?
A big part of CC Film Festival has a strong connection with crowdfunding culture, and there are a lot of experts in this field amongst CC filmmakers. A while ago, I posted a short conversation with Nico Alcala in a crowdfunding group. A project he was leading is crowdfunded film which was also crowdproduced (swarmed!) by over 5000 people. https://edgeryders.eu/comment/5998#comment-5998.
Here is also some overlaps with Viral Academy
It implies learning by doing: mobile app for the Fest can be one of the projects/learning teams of VA.
Apart from learning tech, crowdfunding is one of the skills in the Viral Academy skill ontology.
Viral Academy is working in collaboration with students from Liceo Artistico Matera throughout the summer. Creative Commons licence is a hot topic for artists.
