Slim Cinema Film Festival: Changing Creative Boundaries One Film At A Time



Brooklyn -  Art and film collide, vertically speaking, during Slim Cinema's 3rd annual Vertical Film Festival.

Slim Cinema's mission is to challenge creators, filmmakers and brands to explore this vertical composition in order to tell stories in a mobile world, which gives the power of stories the capacity to fit in your pocket.

Founder Michael Liu had the vision for creating a platform that would allow film to be explored vertically (think Snapchat, Facebook Live). Liu put his faith, passion and confidence into action, partnered with those willing to stand behind his idea and the rest was history.

This year's event included nearly a dozen films and the audience got to vote for the top film.

#StylePost: Thinking about the modern-day Lois Lane

By Missy  Enaje

Lois Lane - the DC Comics' fictional character reigned as the Pulitzer-prize winning investigative newspaper journalist at the Daily Planet. Lane, alongside fellow reporter Clark Kent, better known as Superman - was the superhero's chief romantic interest.

Thinking about how much of a boss she was, I decided to dive into the style category with modern-day female reporters. But I had to start from the inspiration from the past - from Ida B. Wells to foreign correspondents, the women who paved the way for the grit of a story did it in style.

The most important part is that they did it with their own personal style, which is the best style, making ones own unique mark.
