An Evening with Sylvester Stallone at LA Film Festival

user
THE BIG EVENT of the day, if not of them entire week, was a personal appearance by Sylvester "Rocky" Stallone in the ongoing festival sidebar, "Conversations With" -- featured monitored stage interviews with various Hollywood personalities of note.  The last was with actor Ben Affleck and still to come is legendary no-budget flix director Roger Corman.  Mr. Stallone, now pushing sixty-four (Born July, 1946) but looking more like thirty-four, showed up nattily dressed in...

The Global Film Village: Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia in Los Angeles

user
by Marla LewinThe play “Arcadia” is set at the English estate of the Coverlys, a family of the nobility, and bounces back and forth between 1809 and the present day. Arcadia refers to the classical Greek state of mind which is pastorial and harmonius.  There is little of that actually in the play where both classic and present day characters look for love, relics, and recommendation and confirmation of their talents.There is repeated mention of poet, playboy Lord Byron himself, though we ne...

Lynn Redgrave's Boldest Interview: Looking Back on Her Career (1943 -2010)

user
Lynn Redgrave Gets Personalby quendrith johnsonWhen Lynn Redgrave materializes for her interview, we're both shocked to find out that three consecutive Los Angeles-area eateries are closed because it is just after 3 pm, the apparent post-lunch witching hour. Who would miss a chance to be in the company of Lynn Redgrave, two-time Oscar® nominated actor (Gods and Monsters, 1998, Georgy Girl, 1966), Tony winner, author of the outstanding one-woman show "Shakepeare for My Father," sister ...

L.A. Indian festival wrap: Bollywood in Hollywood; Khan, Khan, and Khan, inc.

user
Khan is an extremely popular Islamic family name in India where, for the past twenty years, three Khans --Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, and Amir Khan -- have ruled the leading-man roost in Bollywood, commanding sky-high rupee guarantees up-front and wielding enough power to dictate the terms of the films they sign up for. Having one of these Khans in your film is close to an ironclad guarantee of box-office returns in the dog-eat-dog competitive world of Bombay filmdom, and the competition for th...

11th LA Polish Fest conects with Hollywood

user
by Alex Deleon The Los Angeles film festival calendar is so crowded that three of them have currently been running in overlapping juxtaposition. The LA Indian film festival and the LA Polish film festival both started on the same day, April 20, but the Indian one only lasted six days leaving another six days to catch up with the second half of the Polish action. There is also an Asian festival going on simultaneously in Koreatown, but since it is physically impossible to be everywhere at once, ...

The Appeal of Investing in Films

user
Are films a good investment opportunity.  I think they are for the right kind of investor.  Here’s why.  I have written this in a Q&A style to answer the major questions that prospective investors ask about whether to invest or not.   1.   Why is film investment an attractive investment opportunity?  Is it because of the high return or because of the nature of business?               For many investors, the high return is a bi...

World Premieres At Tribeca Film Festival

user
  SONS OF PERDITION It can be argued that what separates A list film festivals from their colleagues are the number of World Premieres that grace their theaters. No matter what the ultimate reception is for these films, the wanna-see anticipation of films in their first public and industry showings provide a sizzle. At the Tribeca Film Festival, which is entering its first weekend, there are an impressive number of World Premieres that are grabbing attention from the public and in...

Started by funny people, for funny people, The 2nd Annual L. A. Comedy Shorts Film Festival, a four-day celebration of comedic short films, came to a hilarious conclusion Sunday evening at Elevate Lounge in Downtown Los Angeles. “All we wanted to do is make it ok for America to laugh their butts off at things that are short and funny. We did it. Now this country is safe again. You can thank us later. No. Wait. Thank us now.” said Festival Artistic Director Gary Anthony Williams. No s...

KISS MY SHORTS

We’re at war, the economy is in the toilet, many are out of work and/or sick with no health care, and speaking of which, arguments over health care reached an all time low with the way people have conducted themselves, oh and did I mention you still haven‘t won the lottery? With all the crap on the “news” the relentlessly chatty pundits shoving opinions in our faces, it’s a wonder we don’t all just take an elevator and jump out a high rise window. And do you want to know wh...

I must confess I cannot wait to see that film.!, What a smart choice and programming from Tribeca. Let me share with you one of my dearest professionnal experiences as a film distribution (with Columbia at the time).
