It is that time of the year once again for Cinema One Originals…woot!
Original. The word, and all its permutations, has been a significant part of the festival name for the last 13 years. Originality has always been the one thing Cinema One Originals has championed and pushed for.
“I Am Original” is the tagline of the 14th Cinema One Originals. It is both a declaration, by the filmmakers and the performers, and a promise, that this year’s films will not be merely awesome but rather flawsome, a word coined to exemplify this year’s festival. Originality is never about perfection. Perfection is boring. Originality is about freshness of voice, an unwavering sense of self and the uniqueness of being human, flawed but awesome.
