Careyes Film & Art Festival – Mexico
Apr 25 @ 3:17 pm

Careyes-Film & Arts proudly celebrated its first edition in January 2011, with a very particular mix of elements: a festival of the arts, with film as its main focus, that seeks to experiment with the combination and pairing of various art forms.

Rafael Marín programmed and presented a wide selection of short films by Latin American directors; and Geovana Ibarra curated an exhibition that presented the work of contemporary artists, making up the cultural agenda for the first edition of ARTE CAREYES.

The art pieces exhibited were auctioned in order to support two different Mexican foundations each committed to their fields: Fondo para la paz (Peace Fund), a private institution which provides social support to help rural indigenous communities in extreme poverty to prosper, and Selva Negra (Black Forest), an organization that merges environmental conservation with conscious social development.

In addition to the cultural agenda, the festival hosted several social events that merged Costa Careyes´ exotic lifestyle with the Latin American cinematic, music and art proposals, creating Mexico´s first unique artistic experience.

The winning short films received a film camera by SONY, 10% of the funds collected through the art auction, and thanks to Screencast, the screening of their films in Cinepolis and Cinemex movie theaters in Mexico.

2011 ARTE CAREYES was supported by GRUPO EXPANSIÓN, ART NEXUS, ZONA MACO, HOTEL EL CAREYES, TALLER MEXICO, NETA COMUNICACIONES, COLOURS, BEEPRO, CANDELARIA and LAS BELLAS ARTES; and was sponsored by AMG Mercedes-Benz, Tequila Patrón, Cervecería Corona, Sony, Smart Water, and Vitamin Water.

ARTE CAREYES aims to become a reference point for the international cultural scene, with the goal of finding new spaces in which to further experiment. Future editions seek to find new pairings of the film experience with other approaches such as fashion, gastronomy, architecture and other arts that might emerge.

Daytime Emmy Awards and After Party – Los Angeles
Apr 29 @ 3:19 pm

The Primetime Emmy Award is an American accolade bestowed by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in recognition of excellence in American primetimetelevision programming. First given in 1949, the award was originally referred to as simply the “Emmy Awards” until the first Daytime Emmy Award ceremonies were held in the 1970s, and the word “primetime” was added to distinguish between the two.

The Primetime Emmys generally air in mid-September, on the Sunday before the official start of the fall television season. They are currently seen in rotation among the four major networks (CBS, ABC, NBC, and Fox). Because of NBC’s coverage of Sunday Night NFL Football beginning in September, when NBC has had the rotation in 2006, 2010 and 2014, the Emmys moved to late August for those years only.

Emmys are considered the television equivalent to the Academy Awards (for film), Grammy Awards (for music), and Tony Awards (for stage).
