Spot RIEC/VidéEau

Videoclip Varie/Various 2006 15'

The Rencontres Internationales "Eau et Cinéma" (RIEC) is held every three years, providing the opportunity for a meeting of water specialists, filmmakers, communicators, teachers, researchers and the general public. One of the aims of RIEC is to promote collaborations through audiovisuals to foster exchange, the sharing of knowledge and studies on the water-related problems. After the success of the first RIEC event in Mexico in March 2006, organized in collaboration with the Académie de l'Eau, the Secrétariat international de l'eau (SIE) took over coordination of the RIEC within the sphere of the World Water Forums and worked with an international policy commission made up of water specialists, the cinema professionals and representatives from international environment-related festivals. The goal of RIEC is to encourage the production of educational and scientific films to sensitize and educate the general public. Moreover it provides an opportunity for filmmakers to participate in an international contest specialized in the films about water. Through its collaboration with the Festival VidéEAU, young people (18-30 years old) also participate in the events and where they given the opportunity to express their points of view and ideas by showing video spots as a contribution to developing the "Eau et Cinéma" project. Usually only the large productions are widely screened, but RIEC would like to create a platform for "unnoticed and independent films". Finally, thanks to the dissemination of audiovisual works concerning water, RIEC promotes international exchange programs and contributes to strengthen one of SIE's fundamental concepts: international cooperation.Raymond JOST
General Secretary of SIE - President of RIEC The idea for the Festival VidéEau was formed in 2006 within the context of the First International "Water and Film" Events that took place in Mexico City for the Fourth World Water Forum. This was the first time an international competition had been held for people from the ages of 18 ... 30, invited from all over the world to submit video clips on the theme "Water, People and Sustainable Development". The first edition of the Festival VidéEau was held in 2007 and, for its first time, the Festival VidéEau was uniquely directed to the youths of the province of Quebec in Canada. Under the theme "Quebec, Land of Water", the festival asked the youths of the province to elaborate on the issues concerning water and also to suggest solutions to the problems of waste and pollution of this resource. For the second edition i 2008, the Festival VidéEau decided to welcome from all over the world youths aged 18 to 30. We have received 80 videos from about 20 different countries.FESTIVAL VIDEEAU (QUEBEC)

UMBRELLA
(India, 2004, 1'30'') Sumita Dasgupta
The spot revolves around the concept of catching rain in a neighborhood, creating a cascading effect. People begin to collect water in a variety of objects and in fact, in anything they can lay their hands on. Using a medley of emotions ... wonder, comedy and even the absurdity ... the idea that rainwater harvesting is a community effort and it is about building a sharing and caring society is subtly woven in.
