The City Of Samba

Keith Loutit is a master of his trade, often copied, never matched. »The City Of Samba« by Keith Loutit and Jarbas Agnelli is one of the best examples of the tilt-shift photography I’ve ever seen. Captured during Carnaval of 2011 in Rio de Janeiro. The project is in Vimeo’s Top 12 Videos of 2012.

The City of Samba


It meant »AutumN«, I call it »SprinG«, even if I made an early start. I’m longing for the days when no coat is required and colour comes into the game again. Photo by 0331C.

LICHTER Streetview

Steetview_hoch In 2013, a new festival section will rise up as part of the LICHTER – Filmfest Frankfurt International: Lichter Streetview! LICHTER uses a variety of media to recapture the seemingly lost urban space with the help of cinema and projection. As one of the first film festivals in the German-speaking region, new forms of cinema and methods of projection are discovered, in order to move urban locations back into focus and render them tangible again.

An adventure playground for all

The LICHTER Film Festival would like to contrast the, for consumption adapted, city center with the LICHTER Streetview and to dislocate the perception of the city. Everyone is invited to participate and through this reclaim the space of their city. How can the moving image in the urban context provide meaning? The competition is open to film makers, architects, cinema makers, artists, street and urban art activists who realise their ideas in Frankfurt in the context of the LICHTER Film Festival, thereby creating an event that is encouraging a sense of community. Whether experimental formats or classical narration – the film develops itself.

The new section will be accompanied by a blog called LICHTER Streetview. Please recommend us – to your friends and acquaintances, to other artists and »interventionists«! The blog has just started and we have publishing just a few examples, but I promise: this is changing and is likely to change more rapidly than you expect. If you want to participate with your work or vision at LICHTER Streetview, please contact us.

LICHTER Streetview will be first presented as a part of LICHTER Filmfest Frankfurt and takes place at Roßmarkt from 3/22 to 3/23/2013.
