The International Fine Arts Film Festival is a creative effort to screen videos and films from around the world in the arts disciplines. We are essential for talented professionals and students to show their work. There are many art disciplines inspired by the muses: From story-telling to dance, music, science, and formats in documentary, animation and experimental which often combine disciplines. International artist Rita Blitt is a Cannes award-wining example of blending the arts of painting, photography and dance with her film Caught in Paint. Watch it below. The trailer from the 2019 Season -- The Collector, by Maria Teresa Alvarado, is unique. And, if in a jam to think, and create, try the short The Surrendering of Gregory Beeman, for a slow burst of inspiration.
The Surrendering of Gregory Beeman, an artist in Santa Barbara, CA, who paints with a trowel and plaster on board, 2016. Produced by Lynn Moss Holley, founding director of the International Fine Arts Film Festival. Enjoy.
Award-winning film Caught in Paint, won at Cannes, meshing the visual arts: painting, photography and the performing arts, with the creative hand and spirit of international artist Rita Blitt.
