I am thrilled to announce that “Lullaby of the butterfly” has been selected in the special programme of the 27th Filmfest Dresden International Film Festival, called “Cinema Roulette” (Thursday, 16th April 2015) which will be screened in the festival location “Altes Wettbüro”, a popular bar and club in Dresden. It is a former casino with a unique character and the programme is referring to this historical function. In this sense it is composed of films that have been selected among the entries to the 27th festival edition.
I am also happy that “Lullaby of the butterfly” has been officially selected in 7th Leiden International Film Experience Festival in the Netherlands to be held on April 30, May 1 and May 2, 2015. This will be the film’s premiere in the Netherlands. LISFE is an annual festival held in the city of Leiden, The Netherlands, dedicated to the most original and creative form of film making: short films. LISFE promotes a wider experience of cinema outside theaters through short films of different genres, origins, purposes and forms and implementations, such as video installations or live performances. LISFE has so far presented in both historical and captivating venues more than 600 short films from over 50 different countries. Until today, 20 awards have been granted to encourage and promote a new generation of filmmakers.
Another piece of good news is that my film was selected and screened at the Film Festival Berlin Feminist Film Week (a non-competitive Festival) in Berlin, Germany, a Festival where they show films with strong female leads and by women directors. Our film screened in a short film section called “Motherhood=Horror” on March 12th 2015 at 21.30.
