ADMIN posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogThe foundation maintaining the Amsterdam house where Jewish diarist Anne Frank hid from Nazis during World War II said Thursday they had bought another property where her family lived in the 1930s. Photo: AFP file THE HAGUE: The foundation maintaining the Amsterdam house where Jewish diarist Anne Frank hid from Nazis during World War II said Thursday they had bought another property where her family lived in the 1930s. But the Anne Frank Stichting said it had no plans to use the ?other home? as a museum, like the one in Amsterdam?s famous canal belt which draws thousands of visitors every year. ?It?s important for the foundation that the home where Anne Frank lived in the 1930s remains intact and is looked after in a proper way,? spokeswoman Annemarie Bekker said. ?It has a very special character... the home situated at the Merwedeplein (square) is inextricably linked to Anne Frank,? Bekker added. The home in southern Amsterdam formerly belonged to a housing corporation but it said it could no longer take responsibility for its upkeep. The Frank family lived in the modest brick building from 1934 until they went into hiding in 1944. Fuzzy black-and-white pictures show a smiling Anne looking from the home?s window frame or sitting in a deck chair on its roof terrace. On July 6, 1942 the Franks went underground as the Nazis were rounding up Jewish families after invading The Netherlands in 1940. In her diary, Anne chronicled her life in hiding until August 1944, when her family was most likely betrayed and sent to Nazi concentration camps. Anne Frank died at Bergen-Belsen in Germany in early 1945, aged 15, less than a year after her capture and just before the end of the war. Her diary, writing during her time in hiding is one of the most moving testimonies of the war and among the most famous diaries of all time. More than 30 million copies have been sold, and numerous adaptations of the book have been made, including plays, television series and a film. The house has been restored to its original 1930s style. Since 2005 it had been let out to the Dutch Foundation for Literature, which uses it as a home for writers forced to flee their countries because of persecution. Currently Syrian writer Samer Alkadri and his family resided at the home, Bekker said.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogCatch them young: A scene from VidCon 2017, California, June 2017. AFP/Getty Images North America THE HAGUE: Move over Johnny Depp or Angelina Jolie. Today's kids no longer want to be Hollywood movie stars. Instead the world of online video beckons. And aiming to help young vloggers and YouTubers to capitalise on a growing market, VidCon Europe announced Tuesday it will return to Amsterdam next year for the second time ? for the only European edition of its hugely popular VidCon US staged annually in Anaheim, California. "If you're between the ages of 10 and 20 what is the number one career when asked what do you want to be when you grow up? The number one thing is an online video star," VidCon chief executive Jim Louderback told AFP. In April, Amsterdam became VidCon's first foray out of the United States. Every year tens of thousands flock to the annual get-together in California, which since its launch eight years ago has become a hot venue for those in the driving seat of an online revolution. The second edition of VidCon Europe will be held in the Dutch capital from March 22-24, 2018, and organisers are confident they will attract more than the 3,000-plus fans who flocked to the city this April. But the focus is changing with less emphasis this time on helping fans to meet their online crushes. "VidCon Europe 2017 will be more of a learning, educational and inspirational event," said Louderback. The aim will be to help those already online or targeting a career on YouTube to "develop their skills, build bigger audiences, their communities and make better videos." "In the movie industry you have all these gatekeepers that keep you from being able to become a movie star," said Louderback. "With online video, everybody can create a video and post it. They're not all going to be good. But you don't have to be in one of these centers of movie-making to be able to rise to the top, and find your audience." During the three-day event, more than 1,000 emerging and established vloggers will conduct workshops on how to cash in online success, work with brands and produce high-quality content.
waqas dar posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogImage: Twitter (@jwbergiii) THE HAGUE: A car driver hit eight people outside Amsterdam Central Station on Saturday, injuring two seriously, after being warned about parking illegally, but police said there was no indication that the driver was carrying out an attack of any kind. "The suspect has been interviewed, and it appears not to have been intentional. But we are investigating further," Amsterdam police said on their Twitter account. The Amsterdam incident happened when police approached a black Peugeot which was badly parked, and the driver tried to speed away, according to Dutch media. Two people were admitted to hospital with serious injuries, and others were treated at the scene after the car hit the crowd and then crashed into a wall. Several ambulances and police were swiftly on the scene on the busy streets outside the station in the heart of the canal-lined Dutch capital. The driver was arrested and taken for questioning. The news came a week after three attackers in a van mowed down pedestrians in London before going on a stabbing spree, killing eight people and injuring 48. The Netherlands has been on high alert following a slew of attacks around Europe in recent months, including last month´s Manchester suicide bombing and two recent attacks in London.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsCentral Board Of Film Certification refused to certify Prakash Jha’s film ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ deeming it unfit for the Indian audiences. A film on women embracing their sexuality is apparently taboo because that’s obviously a right reserved by only men. How else would patriarchy live long? © Prakash Jha Productions “The story is lady oriented, their fantasy above life. There are contanious sexual scenes, abusive words, audio pornography and a bit sensitive touch about one particular section of society, hence film refused under guidelines (sic).” The CBFC issued a ridiculous justification. With more and more filmmakers coming to the fore to narrate the female perspective – a voice that has been silenced for decades, on celluloid and off it, it’s even more appalling to see the Indian Censor Board using all its power to fight the revolution. © Prakash Jha Productions But well, good cinema finds its audience. And that’s exactly what happened at the 10th Annual CinemAsia Amsterdam Film Festival. People showered Alankrita Shrivastava’s ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ with so much love, it won the Audience award for the Best Feature Film. That’s not even all. The film has already won the prestigious Glasgow Film Festival Audience Award for the Best Feature Film, the Spirit of Asia Prize at the Tokyo International Film Festival, the Oxfam Award for the Best Film on Gender Equality at the Mumbai Film Festival. Besides being an absolute honour for the cast and crew of the film, this latest win at the CinemAsia Film festival also serves as a stark reminder that the film is a much needed social commentary our country needs to watch. Are you listening, Pahlaj Nihalani? © Prakash Jha Productions ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ may not hit the theatres anytime soon but it’s creating a stir all over the world in all its capacity. The film starring Ratna Pathak Shah and Konkana Sen Sharma is about women and everything the society doesn’t want you to know about them. Here’s to another win, Team Lipstick Under My Burkha. Your voice shall be heard, one way or the other.
