London Film Festival Stays Exciting Despite Industry Downturn

user
  Despite the current successes of such UK exports as NEVER LET ME GO by Mark Romanek and NOWHERE MAN by Sam Taylor-Wood and the highly anticipated new entry in the mega-successful HARRY POTTER series opening next month, the British film industry is rather in the doldrums. The ending of key tax credits and the shuttering of the UK Film Council (accused of lavish lunches and other extravagances in a period of austerity)  has given pessimism the upper hand in British film circles. Of...

Tribeca 2010: From Pipelines to Film Culture?

user
It belongs to our common sense perception that distribution and production technologies develop more rapidly than the content they cover and that great competence in technologies is not equivalent to the mastery of creative content. Knowing grammar and vocabulary or different types of filters and lenses is a necessary but not a sufficient condition for creative output. Over the last few years in virtually all related film festival seminars there have been discussions about the new distribution p...

Tribeca 2010: From Pipelines to Film Culture?

user

Spirited defenses of the internet as an answer to independent woes have subsided given the negligible financial impact the internet has been having, not to speak of the catastrophic unmooring of the music industry. Yet, whether or not the...

The Sundance connection is especially relevant, with this year...
