The New York Jewish Film Festival: A Catered Affair For All Tastes

Tuesday, January 9----It is often said, and I would be a fool to disagree, that anyone who lives in New York City long enough becomes a kind of “honorary Jew”. Whether it is an uncontrollable yen for matzoh ball soup, a love of klezmer (Jewish soul) music, or a few Yiddishims creeping into everyday speech, New Yorkers are in spirit, if not in reality, more than just a little bit Jewish. Therefore, the 16th Annual New York Jewish Film Festival, which opens tomorrow and runs through January ...

Remembering An Artist And A Gambler

Saturday, January 6----It is going to take a long time to get over the loss of such a monumental and influential film talent as Robert Altman. The maverick director, who was one of the few to move in and out of both the Hollywood studio system and the independent film world, and yet remain true to his own vision and artistic process, is already sorely missed. To reacquaint a new generation with the astonishing diverse films of his career, The IFC Center, one of New York's most ambitious cathed...

Five Directors Compete for Sundance Travel Package

Friday, January 5----Pity the poor independent filmmaker who is trying to go to the Sundance Film Festival on the cheap.

Filmmakers on a budget need to be creative, and this year, official ...

An Embrace Between Dance and Film

Thursday, January 4-----Annie Leibovitz, the superstar photographer, has famously said that dance is the one medium that is almost impossible to correctly capture via the still photograph. Because of its key element, movement in space, it is much better suited for the moving picture format. That speaks directly to lovers of dance and dance on film who should revel in the Dance on Camera Festival, which premieres this week at New York’s Walter Reade Theater. Screenings continue this week thro...
