Carte blanche : Marley Hansen — Nowness — Londres

For this 40th edition, FIFA is honored to welcome the carte blanche of Marley Hansen, programmer for the British platform Nowness. These films will be presented free of charge as part of the Pop-up program from March 16 to 26 from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm in the Tudor Hall at Holt Renfrew Ogilvy.

Dreaming is Believing
NOWNESS has curated a program of enchanting short films that harness the power of dreaming to effect real-world change. The filmmakers in this program are part of a new wave of creatives from across the African diaspora whose singular, visual language transcends borders and cultures. From Gen Z fairy tales to Afrofuturist dreamscapes, these films boldly inhabit the state between waking and sleeping while touching upon contemporary issues. Dreaming is Believing starts its journey in America with poignant storytelling from directors Sékou Neblett, Daddy Ramazani and Justice Jamal Jones. The program then crosses over to Africa to witness the fantasy landscapes of Amirah Tajdin and Jabu Nadia Newman, but not without a layover in London to experience the award-winning work of Curtis Essel.

NOWNESS is a movement for creative excellence in storytelling, celebrating the extraordinary of every day. Launched in 2010, NOWNESS’ unique programming strategy has established it as the go-to source of inspiration and influence across art, design, fashion, beauty, music, food, and travel. Our curatorial expertise and award-winning approach to storytelling is unparalleled. We work with exceptional talent, and both established and emerging filmmakers, which connects our audience to emotional and sensorial stories designed to provoke inspiration and debate.
