Submit to the DIY Film Fest 2011


November 30th, 2010 by

DIY FILM FEST is accepting submissions for a competition called “Spirit of DIY” for the 3rd edition of the festival, which will be held July 9-10, 2011, in Gdynia, Poland, and Minsk, Belarus. If you think your film matches the motto “From DIY, About DIY” and applies somehow to the idea “Do It Yourself,” write to They will reply with the requirements for your submission and give you the address to send a viewing copy. The deadline is April 22, 2011. However, submitting films is an ongoing process and works received after the deadline will be considered for the 2012 fest. “Spirit of DIY” is not restricted to any genre, year of production, or film length. Unhindered creativity and cinematography are the most important aspects for qualification. The fest’s judges make the decisions about participation in the competition, whereas festival audiences of both countries choose the winner of the Sarah Jacobson Award. Additionally, every qualified work will be reviewed on the Internet, and their authors may count on further promotion and film screenings. DIY OR DIE!

“Punk problems” in Indonesia…


November 23rd, 2010 by

And MRR reader Austin sent in this comment…

Pulled from another article in the Jakarta Post:

Jakarta street punks not as scary as they look
Marco, from a street punk community in Cilandak, South Jakarta, said he would like to do something other than performing on the street, but he did not have enough money yet to start a business. “I never steal though. I do feel that I am much better than those people with neat appearances who are corrupt,” Marco said. He added he wondered why Public Order officers often arrested them even though they never violated the law. Street punks are targets of raids because the administration categorizes them as people with social problems who disturb public order.

It’s always going to be difficult to live the way you want to. Incredible respect for people that are so dedicated to their passions that they pursue them despite all reprisals.
