“The Silkies of Madagascar” was one of 4 finalists selected for the Eric Moe Sustainability Film Award, presented by the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital. The $1,000 prize-winning film, the runner-up film , and 4 finalist films will screen at National Geographic headquarters on March 20th.
The theme of the 2014 Festival, Our Cities, Our Planet, will examine the challenges posed by Earth’s urban environments and the efforts of the world’s cities to balance environmental and economic needs.
“The Silkies of Madagascar” was featured in an article in The Lancet about the Cinema Corner Film Festival at the 2013 Women Deliver Conference.
“What unites the Cinema Corner films then, as well as the theme of women’s empowerment, is personality. They each have a razzle dazzle of uniqueness about them, whether it’s a stunning soundtrack or soaring cinematography, that lifts them up. In David Evans’ The Silkies of Madagascar, a film about traditional weavers whose lives are transformed when a worker for an NGO helps them to sell their work internationally, one scene leaps out. A young weaver giggles as she models brightly coloured scarves for the camera, shaking her hips with confident verve. The scene captures the message of the film perfectly. These are independent women who live life with humour and grace, and who, with a little help, are empowered enough to provide for their families.”

The Woods Hole Film Festival was founded in 1991 by Judith Laster and Kate Davis.
Over the years, it has grown from a one day invitational event to an eight day event with films submitted from around the world. The Festival is held each year from the last Saturday of July through the first Saturday of August in the picturesque village of Woods Hole, Massachusetts. The Festival screens around 100 films culled from more than 700 submissions and offers daily screenings of independent film, workshops, panel discussions, special events, readings, and informal get-togethers.
Woods Hole is the oldest independent film festival on Cape Cod and, while the Festival is dedicated to screening the work of emerging independent filmmakers—with a special emphasis on New England films and filmmakers—it also screens work and hosts filmmakers from around the world.
The Festival especially fosters the work of Cape Cod filmmakers and is dedicated to maintaining a local independent film community. In addition to the summer Festival, the Woods Hole Film Festival hosts year-round screenings, workshops and special events.
3-minute short wins a 2013 CINE GOLDEN EAGLE AWARD.
See the video here.
From the CINE web site: “CINE has a remarkable track record for the early recognition of excellence in filmmaking, particularly among new and emerging filmmakers. Many prominent members of the film and television industry have received the CINE Golden Eagle Award, and for some — such as Ken Burns and Steven Spielberg — it was their first major award. Ron Howard was a teenager, Robert Zemeckis a college student, and Mike Nichols a young comic when each won his Golden Eagle, and hundreds of other distinguished filmmakers, producers and journalists have since followed in their footsteps, some in CINE’s early years (Mel Brooks, 1963) and others in the present day (Martin Scorsese, 2006). For members of the film and television industry, the CINE Golden Eagle Award is an acknowledgment of excellence and validation by their peers.”
3-minute short film was accepted for screening at a gathering of the world’s most influential thinkers and policy makers focused on issues of women’s health and empowerment, held this year in Kuala Lumpur. Invited to personally present the film, Evans launched a successful Indiegogo campaign to raise travel funds so he could accept the invitation.
