Almodovar's VOLVER To Open The Festival

Thursday, October 5---The newest film from Spanish director Pedro Almodovar, the hugely anticipated VOLVER, will open the 21st edition of the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival on October 20th at Fort Lauderdale's prestigious Parker Playhouse. VOLVER, which had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, was honored on the Croisette with a Best Screenplay award for its writer/director Pedro Almodóvar, and an unprecedented Best Actress award for the film's ensemble cast, includin...

The World's Longest Film Festival Comes Of Age

Thursday, October 5----The Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival, officially listed in the Guiness Book of World Records as the longest film festival in the world, is coming of age this year. For its 21st birthday (the same age when residents of the state of Florida can legally drink hard liquor and go to nightclubs where alcohol is served), the Festival is pulling out all the stops, with a program of peerless cinematic delights, special events, VIP guests and other celebrations that wil...

Dixie Chicks Documentary To Have International Premiere

Thursday, October 5----A documentary co-directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Barbara Kopple on the controversial country-and-western group The Dixie Chicks, will have its International Premiere at the Turks & Caicos International Film Festival, a unique event that fuses film and music.

An Audience With Warren Beatty

Wednesday, October 4---Warren Beatty would be the first to admit it. When he talks, he tends to ramble and to answer an interview question at such great length that both he and the questioner have forgotten the original query. At the press conference held on Tuesday afternoon at Alice Tully Hall, following the press screening of his masterpiece REDS, Beatty covered a lot of territory in a wise, witty and rambling style that had the audience eating out of his hand. Such is the power of the mo...

A Celebration of Film and Music

Tuesday, October 3--- A Caribbean archipelago renowned for its superb climate, great underwater snorkeling and majestically pristine beaches. A film festival devoted to the fusion of music and cinema. A meeting place for cinephiles and music afficianados. That is the tantalizing recipe of the Turks & Caicos International Film Festival, which will hold its second annual session from October 17 to 21. The excitement takes place in the beautiful resort city of Providenciales in the Turks ...

When The Dust Settles....An Expanded Film Society

Alice Tully Hall Tuesday, October 3----Audiences attending the NEW YORK FILM FESTIVAL screenings cannot help but notice that there is massive construction going on in and around Lincoln Center these days. The front of the Festival's main screening venue, Alice Tully Hall, is being remodeled, and the overpass on West 65th Street has been torn down to create a more airy environment. Missing is the escalator entrance from Broadway and the colonaded walkway that took adventurous filmgoers past the...

A Dialogue With Stephen Frears

Sunday, October 1----It would be hard to find a more entertaining guest for afternoon tea than the director Stephen Frears. His self-deprecating humor, off-kilter sensibility and ingratiating personality were in rousing form on Saturday afternoon, with the director participating in the first of three HBO Films Directors Dialogues at the New York Film Festival. For almost 90 minutes, Frears regaled his audience in a mix of interview and question and answer, moderated by New York Film Festival ...

Saturday Highlights On Festival's First Full Day

Saturday, September 30---The first full day of screenings and events at the New York Film Festival, following last evening's gala premiere of THE QUEEN, was a full program of diverse delights, with something for every cinematic taste. Following its enthusiastic reception last evening, and amidst glowing reviews upon its theatrical release today, THE QUEEN director Stephen Frears was in high spirits at the HBO Films Directors Dialogue , held this afternoon at the Kaplan Penthouse, high atop th...

All Hail The Queen

Friday, September 29----With the exception of devotees of certain specific bars in Chelsea, it is rather rare for someone to be hailed, not once but twice, as a "real queen". Well, that is the case for admired actress Helen Mirren, whose portrayal of two different English monarchs this year have industry insiders wagging about an Oscar sweep. Following her triumphant turn as Queen Elizabeth I in the HBO television mini-series ELIZABETH, a role for which she recently won an Emmy, Mirren can no...

Directors Dialogues At The New York Film Festival

Stephen Frears Friday, September 29---One of the more popular recent additions to the venerable New York Film Festival, which opens its 44th edition this evening, has been the Directors Dialogues series, sponsored again this year by HBO Films. Cinephiles have the rare opportunity to hear from some of the most celebrated directors on the planet in the intimate atmosphere of the Kaplan Penthouse, atop the Lincoln Center arts complex. This year, three directors, with films premiering at the Festi...

The Return of REDS

Thursday, September 28---It was one of the more audacious projects ever produced for a major studio. REDS, the politically-charged epic story of American radicals in the early years of the 20th century, was an unlikely film for Hollywood to have produced, especially at the dawn of the conservative Reagan era. The fact that it ever saw the light of day, and in fact become a critical and public success d'estime, is due entirely to the force of personality of its director/producer/star Warren Bea...
