We’re pleased to announce that the Dawn Breakers International Film Festival is coming to Houston for a two day festival – Hello Houston!

Selected films that will be showcased in Houston are a collection of our 2010/Take 4 films along with some audience favourites from pervious years and some new surprises.

The dates are set for April 15-16, 2011 at the Houston Baha’i Center, a newly-built structure capable of holding hundreds in its auditorium.

More information will be coming your way in the days to come, but for now, reset assured in the modified version of the famous line from Apollo 13, “Houston, we have a problem solution –  some world-embracing films are descending upon the city.”

Bobo & Kipi, an animated television show by Susan Sheper , is about a female Zebra who aspires to be a pilot. Despite her male animal friends being discouraging, she manages to stay optimistic and strives for her goal. This episode explores the inequality of men and women in present-day and what women can do to rise above it. It is very empowering and encouraging. Overall, the graphics and plot are appealing to the whole audience and mesmerizing for the children.

SpOtlightOn: Madagascar, canet de voyage

Posted on : 23-02-2011 | By : dbiff | In : Dawn Breakers News



Madagascar, a film by Bastien Dubois, is a journey through Africa. Very few films, let alone short films, succeed in capturing a culture that is so rich, but this film does it with much ‘drama.’ The film takes the viewer on a biopic journey and shows everything that had caught the eye of the storyteller. In the case of Madagascar, the eye of the storyteller captures a range of cultural gems that, again, very few filmmakers can claim to have captured with so much depth.
