Matta Media and The National Arts and Culture Alliance has been out and about talking to artists about their practice with communities in Australia. Matta Media caught up with 3 leading community and cultural development artists to see how they felt their sector was developing and where some changes might need to occur. Yanni Scott-Davis, Poppy van Oorde-Grainger and Shakthi Sivanathan, three dynamic and award winning Australian artists have taken some time out to share with you their thoughts.
7th October 2011, the MATTA MEDIA crew had the privilege to film the Latin Film Festival at the beautiful Bankstown Arts Centre. The night showed a Venezuelan film called Hermano and fantastic performances by Cecelia Vilardo and DJ Spex! It was a night filled with beautiful culture, dance, wine and mouth-watering empanadas. The video will be up online soon! Catch the rest of the festival while you still can, otherwise you’ll have to wait a whole year for the next on
In May 2010, the Spanish & Latin American Association for Social Assistance (SLASA) contracted Matta Media to produce a film documenting the inaugural Afro Latino Festival. The day was an overwhelming success that brought together diverse African & Latin American communities in Sydney to celebrate their shared love for soccer and music!
Matta Media filmed the entire day using Digital SLR cameras and professional audio recording equipment. The result was a powerful short film capturing the spirit of the event available online.
The video has attracted over a 1000 views.
