Since 2005, I have been visiting the Indian Film Festival / Indisches Filmfestival Stuttgart (my 2016 preview) almost every year. Here are short Twitter reviews of the 18 movies I was able to watch this year (sorted by rating, the highest one would have been 5 stars/*****):
„Journalismus heute: An der Grenze“ lautete das Motto der Jahreskonferenz 2016 der Journalistenvereinigung Netzwerk Recherche, die am vergangenen Wochenende (3./4. Juli 2016) im NDR-Konferenzzentrum in Hamburg-Lokstedt stattfand. Video-Mitschnitte vieler Podien gibt es bei der Spreerunde, zahlreiche Blog-Beiträge auf der Tagungsseite. Weitere Links finden sich im #nr16-Pad. Die Konferenzzeitung „Nestbeschmutzer“ kann hier abgerufen werden.
Auf dieser Seite habe ich Tweets zu diversen Diskussionen und Info-Links zusammengestellt:
200 journalists met for the fifth edition of the News Impact Summit in Berlin last week. The free media innovation event was organized by the European Journalism Centre (EJC) and the Google News Lab and focused on the theme “New Tools, Immersive Storytelling & Engagement”. Nine of the talks have been archived at Voice Republic. The next summit will take place in Helsinki/Finland on September 26, 2016.
I collected the most interesting tweets (hashtag: #NISBER) and most helpful links:
I was sad to hear that Bernie Worrell, P.Funk’s „Wizard of Woo“, passed away yesterday at the age of 72. I last saw him in person a long time ago – he, his wife Judie, his band and I were holding hands backstage at New Orleans‘ Tipitina’s club, praying for a good show.
On a personal note: My favorite P.Funk has always been about George Clinton, Bernie, Bootsy Collins and Garry Shider – the hustler and the three musical geniuses. (I am sure George won’t mind – he and I talked about this. ;-) )
Here is a phone interview about his album „Funk of Ages“ I did with him in 1991, for the P.Funk newsletter New Funk Times I used to publish from the late ’80s to early ’90s (continuing the great work of Archie Ivy & Co.).
New Funk Times: I was wondering if you cut any of the basic tracks with the whole band present in the studio, or were there a lot of over-dubs going on?
Bernie Worrell: There’s a lot of over-dubs. You won’t believe the size of the studio I had to record it at! It’s pretty small, but the one good thing about it was… a lot of recording studios in New York don’t have windows, you can’t see out to the street. But this one was in what we call the Tribeca area, and it had two windows. So at least we could see outside.
