SIAPKAN ADRENALIN MU UNTUK INAFFF
(Indonesia International Fantastic Film Festival) 2009 !!!



Setelah sebelumnya dikenal dengan nama Screamfestindo di tahun 2007, dan menjadi festival film bergenre fantastic pertama di Asia Tenggara (dan yang kedua di Asia setelah Puchon Film Festival, Korea), LA Lights presents INAFFF (Indonesia International Fantastic Film Festival) kembali hadir dengan jiwa yang sama, nuansa yang gempita, dan kesegaran yang selalu akan memuaskan kebutuhan pecinta film akan genre horror/thriller, fantastic, sci-fi dan kali ini juga melebarkan wadah untuk para penggemar film Anime.

Menggeliat dan selalu berkembang, setelah sukses di tahun 2007, INAFFF 2008 berhasil memuaskan nafsu anime para pecinta film Jakarta dan Bandung dengan diputarnya Evangelion 1.0. Jumlah penonton yang bertambah dua kali lipat di tahun 2008, bertambahnya jumlah film, berkembangnya lokasi, menjadi acuan INAFFF untuk terus menjadikan media festival ini sebagai wadah tempat berkumpulnya fans fanatik film genre tersebut dan menapakkan dirinya sebagai bagian dari peta festival film yang sudah ada di Indonesia.

LA Lights INAFFF 2009, dengan periode kurang lebih 13 hari, akan diselenggarakan di 2 kota, yakni Jakarta (Blitz Megaplex Grand Indonesia dan Blitz Megaplex Mall of Indonesia) pada tanggal 13 – 22 November 2009 dan Bandung (Blitz Megaplex Paris Van Java) pada tanggal 27 – 29 November 2009, memutarkan lebih dari 35 film dari berbagai Negara di dunia (Norwegia, Amerika, Inggris, Spanyol, Thailand, Korea, Jepang, dll).

Film RUMAH DARA (Macabre) akan menggebrak festival ini, yaitu sebuah film karya anak bangsa hasil arahan Mo Brothers (Timo Tjahjanto & Kimo Stamboel), sebagai film pembuka yang banyak dinanti dan akan diputar untuk pertama kalinya di Indonesia. Rumah Dara (Macabre) adalah film layar lebar kelanjutan dari film pendek Dara yang pada tahun 2007 yang pertama kali diputar di Indonesia melalui Screamfestindo, dan sudah memenangkan berbagai penghargaan di berbagai festival film dunia.

Dua film lokal lainnya yang juga bisa dinikmati adalah PINTU TERLARANG (Forbidden Door) arahan Joko Anwar yang baru saja memenangkan penghargaan “Best Film” pada Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival, dan satu film karya Gareth Evans dengan judul MERANTAU, yang memenangkan “Audience Award” pada Austin Fantastic Film Festival pada bulan September lalu.

Kecantikan dan kepiawaian acting Milla Jovovich dibawah arahan sutradara Olatunde Osunsanmi lewat film 4th Kind menjadi salah satu film yang memberikan nuansa misteri. Hilangnya seluruh penduduk desa di Alaska secara misterius yang akan dituturkan lewat 4th Kind, mencuatkan imaginasi tentang hadirnya mahluk luar angkasa yang datang menculik seluruh isi desa tersebut.

Bermain-main dengan imajinasi, temuilah kompilasi film-film pendek hitam putih dari Prancis yang satir karya Charles Burns berjudul FEARS OF THE DARK. Kemegahan sosok fiksi Mushasi dari Jepang bisa dirasakan lewat film animasi MUSHASI: The Dream of the Samurai karya Mizuho Nishikubo. Kemunculan zombie-zombie nazi yang haus darah dan kocak dapat dinikmati lewat film DEAD SNOW dari Norwegia.

Seperti tahun sebelumnya, LA Lights INAFFF 2009 kembali mengadakan Movie Workshop yang didukung penuh oleh Majalah Cinemags, dan di tahun ini akan mengambil film Merantau sebagai topic pembahasan. Gareth Evans, sutradara film Merantau akan bercerita tentang sisi bela diri dan peran pemeran pengganti dalam film ini. Audience Award juga masih dilakukan untuk mengetahui selera subjektif penonton Indonesia terhadap film-film yang mereka sukai, di tahun 2008, Audience Award dimenangkan oleh film Coming Soon dari Thailand.

LA Lights INAFFF mendapatkan dukungan yang luar biasa hingga akhirnya dapat melanjutkan perjalanannya hingga ke tahun ketiga di tahun 2009 ini. Masih sama dengan tahun sebelumnya, dukungan penuh didapatkan dari Norwegian Embassy lewat film Hidden dan Dead Snow dan juga French Embassy melalui film Fears of the Dark.

Melalui ajang ini, diharapkan juga penonton dapat menerima karakter dan keunikan film-film dari berbagai negara dan secara tidak langsung dapat menjadi wadah dibeli dan diputarkannya berbagai film oleh distributor lokal, seperti Orphanage (Spanyol – Screamfestindo 07), The Fall (UK – Screamfestindo 07), Cold prey (Norwey – Screamfestindo 07), Let The Right One In (Sweden – Inafff 08), Coming Soon (Thailand - Inafff 08), dan Evangelion 1.0 (Japan - Inafff 08).

Kedekatan dua arah dengan penonton, kekakuan yang ditiadakan, dan kebebasan berekspresi menciptakan nuansa seru, ramah dan penuh kejutan, adalah karakter yang selalu akan dibawa LA Lights INAFFF tahun ini maupun tahun-tahun yang akan datang. Diharapkan jiwa ini akan mengakar kuat dan meluas hingga menjadikan festival ini sebagai salah satu festival film di Indonesia yang diperhitungkan di mata dunia Internasional.



PS : I'll come in Blitz Sunday November 15, 2009. Would you join with me???

A lot of queer people remember Meimei from her glamorous drag shows in the Beijing gay bars. The documentary "Meimei" gives us some insight in her fabulous and complicated life. The star herself will be present at the Boat, making a long-expected return to the Beijing stage.

《美美》 MeiMei

DirectorGao Tian 82mins 2005

This film won the jury award at the Gwangju International Film Festival in Korea.

Meimei is a drag queen in Beijing, China. In 2004 she finds the man of her dreams, a man who accepts and loves Meimei for who she is. They get married and hold a public wedding ceremony. Meimei is very confident about their future together. She decides to follow her husband to Shanghai and gives up all the stability and security she built up after many years of hard work in Beijing. She wants to start a new life. Her friends hold a “Meimei Farewell Concert”, an event at which the Beijing gay community says goodbye to her. Things don't turn out as planned for Meimei however. Her marriage turns out to be brief and not happy at all. She comes back to Beijing soon, embarrassed to see old friends while falling into worse financial straits than ever before.

After reaping success in Berlin and Turin, "Soundless Wind Chime" has been shown at almost every gay film festival in the world. New generation director Kit Hung tells the moving story of a cross-border romance in this visually beautiful film shot in Hong Kong, Beijing and Lucerne. Enjoy the trip!

《无声风铃》Soundless Wind Chime

Writer, DrectorKit Hung 100mins 2009

This film was a Teddy Award Nominee at the Berlin International Film Festival and won the Audience Award, a Special Jury Mention and the Award for Best New Director at the Turin GLBT International Film Festival.

Soundless Wind Chime is the poetic journey of Ricky, searching for the lost soul and the past of his deceased Swiss lover – Pascal. The film shows a battle of love, lust, reality, memory and illusions and the grief everybody bears every day.

"Comrades, You Have Worked Hard"

Date: Saturday 31 October, 3pm

Do you want to know more about LGBT history in China? Do you want to know what happened at the Beijing Qianmen same-sex marriage advocacy event on Valentine's Day 2009? These documentaries give you an insiders' view of the world of queer comrades in China. As a cherry on top of this red cake, we'll also show a short fiction film made in honor of the 4th Beijing Queer Film Festival. The filmmakers will be present at the Boat for a Q & A session with the audience.

《誌同志》Queer China ,‘Comrade’ China

DirectorCui Zi’en 60mins 2008

This film won the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the 24th Turin GLBT International Film Festival.

During the 30 years that have passed since the reforming and opening up of China, more and more attention has been paid to the topics of gender and sexual orientation. Male sexism and heterosexual hegemony have been challenged and revised by feminism and by the LGBT-focus on diversity in sexual orientation. China’s sexual history has progressed along a winding road during these past 30 years. The main obstacles surrounding the advancement of sexual ideas, sexual behaviour and sexual mediums have been conservatism and a deep-rooted reluctance to change.

In this feature length documentary, we interviewed 30 prominent figures in the LGBT community. By documenting and preserving a significant part of our history, we aim to investigate the present and explore the future.

《新前门大街》New Beijing, New Marriage

DirectorFan Popo, David Cheng 18mins 2009

Before the Beijing Olympics, the Qianmen Street was renovated into a popular shopping and tourist spot. On February 14, 2009, the Valentines Day, a gay couple and a lesbian couple chose to have their wedding photos taken on the Qianmen Street. It was a beautiful Spring Day in Beijing. People who witnessed the event include local residents and tourists from all over the country. Would they understand what was going on? Did the branded ‘New Beijing’ also bring about ‘new concepts’ about love and marriages?
