Bruno Chatelin to speak at Film Festivals Days: Film Festivals’ organizers gathering this fall in Pula, Croatia

There are hundreds of film festivals in the world, several are created each month, and the ones dedicated to short formats are thriving.
But, will there be a market space for them all if their goals in creative programming and marketing, brand and growth strategy are not well defined?
 
This year’s conference will be divided in 5 areas of study: audience development; heritage and community; visual communication and branding; new technologies; management of creative teams.
It will be held in Pula, Croatia, taking advantage of the country's beautiful and relaxing landscape at Hotel Park Plaza Histria. The organizers prepared great accommodation deals and tourist activities to make this industry event an exceptional experience.
Film Festivals Days wants to provide actionable concepts and tools developed by specialists to train attendees to develop their festivals with a much more accurate knowledge about the industry landscape and give them a complete skillset... FIND OUT MORE
 

ASH MORRIS : A BRITISH FILMMAKER TO WATCH

user
2010 -  The world was introduced to the Crawleys and their personnel. “Downton Abbey” took viewers by storm. I’m bed-ridden. I’m fighting a letter that more often than not, carries a death sentence. 
Years pass by, I travel extensively in-between treatement sessions, I co-produce a documentary, and I write a lot. I’m young but I feel a higher sense of urgency. I eventually conquered, the beast is down. 
2017 -  Remission coincided with a lot of catching up on cultural nourishment. My good friend Sophie Saleyron, publicist extraordinaire, highly recommends “Downton Abbey”. I check it out : 52 episodes, 6 seasons, dammit, I have a life to live, and it’s an awfully long commitment ! Yet , my curiosity is piqued, I abide...
...
2018 -  I met with Ash in Oxford on a heavy rainy day. Since this interview, he got selected for 2019/20 BAFTA Crew talent development programme, and joined the 4STORIES initiative. He directed “Adulting” due to air on BBC. A middle-aged man with a scruffy beard and a bright future, Ash Morris is a British filmmaker to watch.  Read More

Prassthanam%2C%20Poster.jpeg
Prassthanam, Review: Loyalty, integrity and legacy, to see or not to see, that is the question When you have classics like the Mahabharat, Ramayan and Shakespeare’s works, why look elsewhere for inspiration? Update the setting and references but retain the blood and gore, conceit and deceit, loyalty and betrayal, vice and avarice, and above all, good and evil. You now have a story that every lover of mythology, every cinephile identifies with, and the figure could be well above a billio...

The Zoya Factor, Review: Cricket superstitions, and bowling a ‘maiden’ over It’s a romantic comedy about cricket, superstition and finding your soulmate after several heart-breaks. Strange bedfellows? Not if you know your cricket, appreciate the quirky beliefs of cricketers and can empathise with a woman who has been dumped several times, yet dreams of finding Mr. Right very soon. All three angles are developed substantially, yet something is missing. Perhaps, unlike all the...

Rambo-Last Blood: Rambo No. 5 On its last legs, rather last leg, the Rambo series takes one last shot at the franchise, extending its title from the 1982 sample, First Blood. Nobody can quarrel with this confessional finality of the moniker of Last Blood, which could not but be the last poke of the syringe, or a last bow to the bow, in a subject that has already drained itself out, and badly needed a transfusion to save itself. If Last Blood is that transfusion, it is contaminated, for it is ...

Out of Sight , Out of Mind by Brian Follmer

123 minutes USA 2019 Trailer

Out of Sight, Out of Mind is a satire about mental illness in the 21st century. It is an exploration of the way mental illness manifests itself through the internet, the way society rewards the mentally ill for their entertainment value on Youtube or Facebook, and the way society's only answer to this problem is institutionalization and dangerous medication. At its heart, the film is a coming of age story about the characters Travis and O'Brien as they struggle with their mental and emotional issues. The film is shot in a hyper-realistic style, echoing the work of John Cassavetes, Terrence Malick, and the biting satirical edge of Jonathan Franzen. The film is based on a true story and was first discovered at Rotrterdam festival.

 

Travis's tight social group of friends and lovers splits apart when his childhood friend, O'Brien becomes severely mentally ill. Now alone, the characters go their separate ways: Travis helps crowd-fund a socialist revolution in Mexico, O'Brien succumbs to mania and becomes a satirical Youtube celebrity, Kate seeks stability in online dating, and Lox embarks on his first indie rock tour. Their lives continue to cross paths and reconnect through the internet.

THE MYSTERY OF A BURYAT LAMA», directed by Elena Demidova

The documentary film «THE MYSTERY OF A BURYAT LAMA», directed by Elena Demidova, tells a story of one of the most famous lamas, Pandido Khambo Lama Dashi Dorzho Itigelov. His body is recognized as one of the sacred Buddhist objects of Russia and is being kept in the Ivolginsky Datsan. The Buddhist monks approach him as a living person.
 
Itigelov was born in 1852 and began his religious education at the age of sixteen years. In 1911, he was appointed the twelfth Pandido Khambo Lama as the Head of Russian Buryat Buddhists. Between 1913 and 1917, Itigelov was prominent in the spiritual life of Russian Empire. He took part in the Tercentenary celebrations of the House Romanov and opened first Buddhist temple in St. Petersburg. During First World War Itigelov presided over the society of "Buryat brothers", an organization helping the Russian army. After October Revolution, Itigelov resigned as head of the Buddhists. In 1927, aged seventy-five years, he asked other lamas to begin meditation ceremonies and funeral rites, since he said he was about to die. Itigelov left a testament asking to be buried as he was at the time of his death, sitting in lotus posture. On September 11, 2002, Itigelov's body was eventually exhumed in the presence of the leaders of the Buddhist Traditional Sangha of Russia and transferred to Ivolginsky Datsan.

THE CREEPY LINE a film by M.A.Taylor 2018

"A film that Google does not want you to see  - filmfestivals.com Best for Fest"

An eye-opening documentary, The Creepy Line reveals the stunning degree to which society is manipulated by Google and Facebook and blows the lid off the remarkably subtle – hence powerful – manner in which they do it.

The Creepy Line is a title culled from the words of former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, when during a 2010 interview he explained Google’s code of conduct: “The Google policy on a lot of things is to get right up to the creepy line and not cross it.”

However, as Dr. Robert Epstein explains in the film, “Google crosses the creepy line every day”. 

Offering first-hand accounts, scientific experiments and detailed analysis, The Creepy Line examines what is at risk when these two tech titans have free reign to utilize the public’s most private and personal data to manipulate society.

There is no question that the “creepy line” is getting ever-creepier, and that the tech giants have crossed it.
