Everything Is Forever movie premieres in world film festival



We are proud to share that Everyting is Forever will premiere at the 47th Annual Worldfest-Houston International Film Festival. The film is a cinematic journey of Croatian composer/singer Nenad Bach through war and peace, and rock and roll.  It was filmed over the last fifteen years or so by talented Film Director and Editor Vic Zimet, with the prolific writer Stephanie Silber as Producer.

The world premiere will be on Friday April 11th @ 9PM.

The WorldFest-Houston International Film Festival was founded in 1961 by Hunter Todd in Houston, Texas, and remains an annual film festival held each April, dedicated to recognizing excellence in various types of independent films and filmmaking.

In 2014: submissions from 37 countries. The festival presents around 55-60 new Indie feature films and 100 new Indie Short films during the ten-day film festival each April. Aside from the film viewing, the festival offers six Master Classes, professional seminars, and workshops. Both the films and classes are open to the public. In addition, a Festival Club exists that is open every evening during the festival, a Remi Awards Gala Dinner and a unique Consular Sailing Regatta and Texas BBQ held annually at The Houston Yacht Club on the final day of the festival. It is the only film festival in the world that presents a regatta. Attendance is over 30,000 general public and more than 550 international filmmakers over the ten-day event.

Here's a trailer of the film:

     Musician Nenad Bach
    Everything Is Forever is the new documentary by director Vic Zimet and co-producer Stephanie Silber. The film is an inspiring profile of musician Nenad Bach, who left his thriving musical career in Croatia to become a worldwide ambassador of peace. He has brought his message of goodwill by meeting and performing for heads of state and appearing with fellow musicians such as Bono, Pavarotti, and Garth Hudson of The Band.

    Currently the film is raising funds through an innovative new crowdfunding program called Fundrazr in which donors are rewarded with gift cards for popular businesses like Starbucks, Subway, Best Buy, Home Depot and others in amounts equal to the donation. So, it’s just like buying a gift card and having your money go straight to the filmmakers. And that money, in this case, will go towards finishing funds and a proposed film tour accompanied by appearances with Nenad and his band.

    So, go get rewarded with a gift card (or several) and help a great filmmaker out.



    HERE'S WISHING YOU ALL A FANTASTIC 2014!!

FINALLY EVERYTHING IS FOREVER



We are taking the liberty of sharing here Stephanie Silber's update on the 'Everything is Forever' film project.

http://stephaniesilberwordsworks.com/finally-everything-is-forever/?fb_action_ids=10202595759272446&fb_action_types=og.likes&fb_source=aggregation&fb_aggregation_id=288381481237582

Nenad exults

EVERYTHING IS FOREVER is complete.  It took us fifteen years.  Giving up was not an option.  It’s never been for us.  The other day Vic and I were talking about the notion of giving up on your dreams.  Who goes the distance and who cannot, or will not?  We’ve been around long enough to see many back away, ambition fizzled and gone out.  We’ve both often examined the idea of quitting, putting the endless struggles and sacrifices and going broke finally behind us.  Now I think we both accept that we’ll never stop trying to create, to bring art into the world no matter the emotional and financial costs.

EVERYTHING IS FOREVER is the story of the musician Nenad Bach, who has followed his rock dreams out of his native Croatia to America.  His is the ultimate example of what it means to never stop striving.

We finished the film over the weekend, and Vic and I sat together on a frozen Sunday to watch it together.  Often, when a film is a work-in-progress, you don’t have an opportunity to see it all of a piece.  So as I watched, it was as though for the first time.  It stunned me.  I believe it is Vic’s best work — this is “A Victor Zimet Film” and it shows in every frame, every beat, every nuance.

Vic shooting in Croatia
It plays like a perfect novel, these true adventures of an artist who simply refuses to give up.  Tears, laughter, you-can’t-make-this-stuff-up surprises, war, peace, and the human experience — it’s all here.  We were both weeping at the end, catharsis achieved.  And meaning-making.

Of course, there is lots of work ahead of us.  Now we will begin the arduous process of bringing the film to an audience; art is interactive.  It needs to be seen or heard to have a life.  We’ll submit to festivals, arrange screenings as well as live performances from Nenad and his eponymous band.  We’ll promote with the same determination we brought to the making of the film.  We will get tired.  We will endure disappointments aplenty.  We will sometimes feel like giving up.

But we know what will sustain us.  The feeling of sitting in a dark theater, surrounded by an audience, with a big screen playing EVERYTHING IS FOREVER.  Pure joy.  We’re really looking forward to it.

Nenad Bach Band International Newsletter No. 25: Debut at The Falcon, Documentary film about Nenad



Newsletter April 9, 2013


The band is making its debut at The Falcon this Friday, April 12, 2013! An unplugged version of the Nenad Bach Band will include Joe DeSanctis on keyboards and Marshal Rosenberg on percussion. We will be opening for Alexis P. Suter. Dinner begins at 5:30 p.m. and music starts at 7:00 p.m. The Falcon is located on 1348 Route 9W, Marlboro, New York 12542.

Home Team Productions is wrapping up production of their documentary film about Nenad Bach: titled "Everything is Forever" produced by Stephanie Silber and Victor Zimet , "HOME TEAM has had its lens trained on Nenad for years – witness to his personal struggle to make the transition from stardom in Croatia to outsider in an industry dominated by youth and pop culture. He has never given up. Now, he is composing scores for independent films as he continues to perform and write his own music. Perhaps most importantly, he remains committed to his work as a “citizen of the world,” a tireless antiwar activist, the driving passion which infuses his life and the music he creates."
We're planning to launch a fund raising campaign to help with the production costs of the documentary. Details to follow.

Thank you to Lisa Cohen for this capture of the band performing "All I Want is Freedom" at Lisinski Hall in Zagreb, Croatia: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1F3xh4M_dW4.

NENAD BACH u ZAGREBU

U studenom prošle godine u Lisinskom je održan koncert za pamćenje. Za NENADA BACH, našeg cijenjenog glazbenika i promotora Hrvatske u svijetu, kažu kako je umjetnik s hrvatskom dušom i američkom putovnicom.. "Za mene je ovaj koncert u Lisinskom bio posebni doživljaj. Moji American Boys su oduševljeni Hrvatskom, ljudima, kulturi i sigurno će prepričavati još dugo ova tri dana u Zagrebu. Nastavljam svoju ”Rock with soul” misiju kako ovim koncertom tako i promocijom albuma Everything is Forever. Zahvalni smo Hrvatskoj publici na tako emotivnom prijemu i nadamo se doći ponovno.
Želja svih u bandu je izvesti skladbu Vukovar u Vukovaru." rekao je Nenad Bach nakon koncerta na kojeg vas podsjećamo reprizom na HTV2, 20. ožujka od 17.20.
