Waves and Visions of Hope

To those of us who live by the sea and oceans, the waves mean more that simply curling waters. They denote sounds of a permanent presence, of expected arrivals and anticipated departures. Waves welcome visions of a depth terrifying and a lightness beckoning but more still they propose hope in its glorious and abject abstraction.

To filmmakers this imagery is an embrace of their creativity as those sounds, designs, images and movements are the bedrock upon which their art is formed. The 2015 theme is a call to deeper introspection, to collaboration with those with whom we hear the call and to that enchanted time and space.

Mawimbi na Njozi za Tumaini

Kwa wale waishio kwenye fukwe za bahari, mawimbi sio tu maji yanayovuma, kupwa na kupwaa, kwao mawimbi ni alama ya kujitambua na pia alama ya safari za wale wajao na wanaoondoka. Lakini mawimbii pia yanatisha, ingawa daima hayaishi kutuvutia tukataka kuingia majini tukataraji raha lakini tukiogopa karaha.

Kwa watengeneza filamu alama hii na utashi huu wa mawimbi huwapa nafasi ya kubuni wakitumia sauti, picha na alama kadha wa kadha ili kujieleza na kujinasib kisanii.

Dhamira ya ZIFF mwaka huu inawataka watengeneza filamu wajitome katika mawimbi ya mawazo, na wajione wamo katika lindi la maisha hapo walipo, wakati huu na hata kwenye hali ya kusadikika!
