As children, we all create art.

At Paracademia, we keep those links alive and awake them if they fall asleep. Paracad

We feature three works that recast age-old myths from a woman's perspective. Milica Paranosic's Penelope and the Geese reimagines the Odyssey from Penelope's point of view. We talk with her about the opera and feature three key scenes. And Marisa Michelson's Naama's Ark tells the flood myth from the...

everyone,
the call for films for our #AddAMovie film festival, now in its seventh season, is open at:
https://filmfreeway.com/AddAMovieFestival
The theme is The Day Of the Dead - we as always, we are really flexible about the interpretation - the filmmakers can respond to it anyway that they want.

Our idea is to connect with the ones we have lost, or lost contact with in this lifetime. With COVID strutting through our lives the last 16 months, the balance was disrupted in many ways, and the ratio between the living and the dead was just one of them.

Share you beautiful work with us and good luck!

Extremely proud to have been involved in this-two day installation, together with Yukio Suzuki, Nicole Martinez and others.
About six years ago, we started a fashion-tech-performance series called Paradivas. After the last season hiatus (because of you-know-what), this season we’re coming back! This installation featured pandemic fashion: everything in it was inspired by how last year’s life with coronavirus has affected us, turned into Wearable/exhibit/fashion pieces.
Thank you all for visiting, and we look forward to repeating this production in New York City.

Opinion: The overwhelming odds against women in this Oscar category

Interesting read

This year's Academy Awards will make history, not only because of the pandemic but because of their relative inclusivity, says Nadia Neophytou. But the Oscars are also a time to spotlight the hindrances for women in other parts of the film industry, she writes -- especially those faced by composers.
