Artlightenment Art and Film Festival Takes Place, 11/13Artlightenment Art and Film Festival Takes Place, 11/13
by BWW News Desk - Nov 6, 2014

'The light side of art and film' is the theme for the 2014 Artlightenment festival which will take place Nov 13-15 at the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre Nashville. The festival will showcase underwater photographer Christy Lee Rogers, actress and filmmaker Carla Christina Contreras, celebrity photographer Raeanne Rubenstein, screenwriter Annie Kananack, and fashion designer Elisabeth Donaldson of Monarch Clothing. Each is bringing a unique element to the show and will deliver a special presentation during the festival. Underwater photographer Christy Lee Rogers will deliver a seminar prior to the show titled 'Making a Career as an Artist,' on Nov 13. Rogers' work has been described as, '...undeniably contemporary yet also timeless,' by writer Duncan Beebe for Eyemazing Magazine. Rogers' seminar will be followed by Carla Christina Contreras with her seminar 'Secrets to a Long and Successful Acting Career.' Contreras was born and raised in Hollywood and has been acting since the age of three. On Nov 14, celebrity photographer Raeanne Rubenstein will deliver a talk on 'The Funny Side of Art and Film,' which echoes the central theme of the 2014 Artlightenment showcase. Rubenstein has worked with some of the biggest names in movies, music and pop culture such as Andy Warhol, French director Francois Truffaut and iconic singers Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison, among others. Screenwriter Annie Kananack will deliver the workshop 'From Screenplay to Big Screen,' on Nov 15 to encourage future screenwriters. Kananack says, 'I am most alive and fulfilled when I'm writing,' and takes her inspiration from the films of the 30s and 40s as they are very character driven. The seminars have been an integral part of the festival since its inception, where successful artists pass on their knowledge to others. Robyn Morshead is founder of the annual art show. An artist and filmmaker herself, she gears the event toward the advancement of every artist and filmmaker who participates or attends. The festival will take place Nov 13-15 at the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre Nashville, 1130 8th Ave S, and all are welcome. For more information, visit artlightenment.com. (more...)
