Belmont World Film added an event.
Belmont World Film presents “Don’t Stop the Music,” a two part film series about musicians whose artistic freedoms have been limited due to restrictive governments on two Mondays, October 23. and November 6, at 7:30 PM. The first film on October 23, SONG OF LAHORE directed by two-time Oscar winner Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and Andy Schocken, follows the formation of Pakistan's Sachal Jazz Ensemble through its performance at Lincoln Center with Wynton Marsalis's band. It is being shown in conjunction with a concert by the Sachal Jazz Ensemble presented World Music/CRASHarts on Sunday, October 29, at 8 PM at Berklee College of Music. The Sachal Jazz Ensemble is a group of classical virtuoso musicians that formed in secret in response to the country’s military coup in July 1977, when General Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq became president and set out to "cleanse" Pakistan's cultural landscape. Most non-religious music was declared sinful in Lahore and even virtuoso musicians had to become taxi drivers or shopkeepers just to keep food on the table. When Izzat Majeed founded the Sachal Ensemble, he sought out the city's great musicians, many of whom had permanently put away their instruments. Initially, the ensemble focused on the region's classical and folk music, but then Majeed started to dream about jazz being played on local instruments. As they searched for a broader audience outside Pakistan, the group began to explore cross-cultural versions of Western jazz standards, pop, and film classics. The Sachal Jazz Ensemble emerged internationally in 2011 with an ambitious recording covering Western jazz standards on their traditional instruments. Their unusual angle on Dave Brubeck’s hit Take Five went viral, earning them worldwide recognition and an invitation from Wynton Marsalis to perform at Lincoln Center. The film follows their journey from the band's creation through their trip to New York and its aftermath. The screening will be followed by a discussion led by a speaker to be determined. The 10-piece group is visiting Boston for the first time as part of their first US tour with a repertoire that mixes traditional Sufi music, ragas, and beloved Pakistani film songs with uniquely South Asian spins on Western classics, such as The Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby," R.E.M.'s "Everybody Hurts," Michel Legrand's "The Windmills of Your Mind," and of course, "Take Five."

Thanks to Mass Cultural Council for awarding Belmont World Film's 2018 Family Festival with a Festival Grant! #BWFFamilyFest2018

Belmont World Film shared Mass Cultural Council's post.
We are happy to share that the Massachusetts Cultural Council's budget has been restored to $14 million, level with last year's budget (it was going to be cut to $12 million). We rely on the Mass Cultural Council not only for funding, but also for guidance and leadership. Thank you for leading the fray to restore the budget!
Thank you Senator Stan Rosenberg, Senator Karen Spilka, and Senator Adam Hinds for your leadership in the Massachusetts State Senate. #ArtsMatter
(Boston, MA) – The Massachusetts Senate voted unanimously today to restore nearly $2 million in state funding for the arts, humanities, and sciences through the Mass Cultural Council.

The new prez is also interested in finding ways to expand voting for the final five foreign language film Oscar nominees; currently, it’s limited to the three, hand-picked, 10-voter committees who attend screenings of the nine shortlisted films over a three-day weekend in three cities!
The cinematographer also tells IndieWire that he’s doubling down on diversity, and wants to bring foreign-language voting into the 21st century.

This is exactly the idea behind Belmont World Film's Family Festival: Where Books Come Alive! Look forward to more great films based on books at this year's Family Festival. #BWF2017
