After nine months of hiatus, Cine-me-cum is back on line with a stronger new team, new graphics and other exciting news.
We apologize for the absence. These are the reasons: our organization, Cagliari in Corto, is the only association that has never and will never receive any monetary recompense thanks to the law for regional cinema. For such promotional organization, such as ours, that has the interest of all at heart (mainly through the web), there is no financial help!
Time and financial help were needed to redo the site, especially the technology. We did not give up. We are here to say that we have persevered and our voice will be heard. We thank all those that believed in us and that have encouraged us to go on; we thank all those that are part of the organization and those volunteers whose motivator is exclusively passion for the cause.
Donatella Percivale our Director, Luca Crippa our in-house Graphic Artist, Maria Elena Tiragallo e Valentina Corona, our assistants, Elisabetta Randaccio, our critic and editor, and also Anna Brotzu, Carlo Rafele, Salvatore Pinna, and countless others that have contributed on their own time and money from all over Sardinia and the world.
Thanks also to jservice that for months has followed us, so that we can realize our new goal. The purpose for the new look was to reach better visuals and more accessible reading of the site.
Our new site offers now two new different menus: one for the organization on the top, the other on the left side column with the content of the review. The reader will have the opportunity to visit previous editions and be free to access the precious and substantial Cinema Archive from 2005 to today. The editions will be every fifteen days, (no more weekly), and our day of publishing will still be on Wednesday.
The overall colors of the site will still be light blue and yellow. Since we attest to be the flagship of this town, the words of the writer Francesco Alziator, one of the main exponents of Cagliari, come to mind:
“Nel sole, la città si leva come una gigantesca mano di pietra, diteggiata di torri, gialla di pietra e azzurra nella magica luna di acque che la circonda”
"The City rises like a giant hand of stone, her fingers made of towers, yellow stones and surrounded by light blue from the magic of the water moon”.
This is the reason why we have chosen the new graphics for the site: they represent and they are typical of the jewel that is the City of Cagliari. Together, with the Institute of the Cultural Arts – Language and Customs of Sardinia -, in collaboration with Salvatore Cubeddu and Quintina Culurgioni, we have started the publication of the new review “Linu a Colores” that will provide in Sardinian Language the translation of some Publications.
Another of our goals is to reach, from our stand point of identity and from our beloved island, the entire world. This is the reason why we welcome our site in English, the cosmopolitan language par excellence.
Cooperation is a key factor for the changes on our site. Cooperation with the “Movimentu” – headed by the director Marco Antonio Pani – that will have a special place in our site. Cooperation with all other Cinema Associations that we will carry in our next first edition, and that will offer automatic access (see instructions below), to all the date-lines and important events in the new “Cineagenda”. It will be a complete guide available to our readers, so that they will be able to know and follow all the newest and most important events in the world of Cinema.
Many other novelties will be offered, and we invite you to explore the new site.
One note: we encourage you to participate at the Blog by Carlo Rafele:”What is Cinema thinking about?” for a serious and deep discussion on the Seventh Art.
Also please do not forget the “Who’s Who” where, in a new setting, you can find the photos and resumes of all those involved in Film. Needless to say, we have set up connections with Facebook and Tweeter and we encourage you to follow and promote us. Help from all of you and your cooperation are vital to our site: we love your suggestions and appreciate your observations, critique and comments, especially from your clicks and subscriptions.
