If this is anything like the launch-exhibition-reading-screening evening hosted by ARC Magazine and Groundation Grenada at Fort Matthew in St. George’s, Grenada (which it promises to be), this event is not to be missed! ARC Magazine, in collaboration with Flowt, is hosting “Caribbean Short Film Night” on July 4, 2013, starting at 7:00pm. The event—in which they will be presenting a sampling of Caribbean short film and video works (complimentary popcorn included) and music by Amanda Gooding and other guests—takes place at Flowt Beach Bar, located at Ratho Mill in St. Vincent.
Description: The event aims to provide a casual and intimate setting for Vincentian artists, writers, poets, performers and cultural activists to connect with each other while building relationships and solidarity with the local creative community.
The evening’s programming, while informal, will engage and showcase various disciplines. …Singer songwriter Amanda Gooding will provide entertainment in the late evening along with select musical guests. The event will culminate with a screening of short film and video works by several Caribbean- and diaspora-based artists curated by ARC Magazine and Yasmine Espert. We are thrilled to announce the premiere of the Jamaican portmanteau, “Ring Di Alarm!,” produced by 6 Jamaica-based directors from the collective, New Caribbean Cinema, which includes Storm Saulter, Michael “Ras Tingle” Tingling, Michelle Serieux, Nile Saulter, Kyle Chin and Joel Burke. The evening will also present experimental works from Christopher and Leizelle Guinness, Jayson Keeling, Versia Harris, Shirley Bruno, Martine Jean, Jeannette Ehlers, and Malaika Brooks-Smith-Lowe. We are also thrilled to announce the local premier of emerging Vincentian filmmaker Aiko Roudette and her award winning experimental film ‘Hoghole’.
Copies of Issue Nº7 of ARC Magazine will be available for purchase for a special ONE NIGHT ONLY price of $40.00XCD. Issue Nº7 presents a collection of works from over 40 artists, writers and instigators who explore formal and informal issues of citizenship, representation, ownership, vestiges of melancholia and nostalgia, as well as renderings of the unburdening of self. Cash and cheques will be acceptable forms of payments.
