FROM THE CIRCUIT

Fort Lauderdale a Celebration of Sunshine And Celluloid


After several weeks of miserably rainy and too-cold-for-October weather
in New York City, a jaunt to the Fort Lauderdale International Film
Festival in sunny South Florida is exactly what the doctor ordered. The
Festival, which is celebrating its 24th year, is one of the most
respected regional events on the festival circuit, with an ambitious
slate of film premieres, celebrity tributes and chic after-parties.
Festivities begin this Friday and run through November 8.

Zoe Elton, Mill Valley Head of Programming Tells All


I got to sit down with Zoe Elton, Director of Programming at The Mill
Valley Film Festival 3 days before the close of this year's fest. She's
been with the Festival since it's inception 32 years ago, when she sort
of fell into the position at random. Previously she worked in England
as a theatre director and writer. Check out our conversation below to
see what she has to say about the video art community in the 80s, how
documentary has changed, it feeling like a "vintage year" for film, and
on what programming for the Mill Valley Film Festival is all about.
