In the ongoing saga of kitchen creativity, my most recent attempt at mint chocolate chip went a little off course.  Who new 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract would be too much in 1 1/2 quarts of ice cream.  Just trust me on this one.  I suppose this was a drawback to complete kitchen freedom, ha.  May this next Call for creative freedom be more successful for you than my mint ice cream experiment.  It isn’t just for filmmakers…

Mono No Aware 2013


Film & video have become easily accessible. One can watch content on a website, television, a home projector, or even a cell phone. For some artists and filmmakers those vehicles are copies of the original artwork, each one degraded by its format. MNA believes there is a magic in seeing the film projected as a print.  There is a presence a poet has reading his/her own writing.  There is a feeling that resonates in your chest when seeing a band live.  For these reasons MNA encourages live music, performance and audio to expand the cinematic experience beyond the screen.  MNA asks that in the spirit of the festival you not video or create copies of your performance.  Some participants have gone as far as to destroy the work after its first run at the event.
