Hoboken International Film Festival Launches On The Waterfront

user
Thursday, February 8------Hoboken, New Jersey, directly across the Hudson River from Manhattan, is famous for three things: the site where the American pasttime of baseball was invented; the birthplace of legendary crooner Frank Sinatra; and the location for the 1950s film classic ON THE WATERFRONT, directed by Elia Kazan and starring Marlon Brando, in the role that won him his first Oscar. This historical waterfront town was once a bastion of working class families, visiting sailors and tough ...

Morricone Music Magic Invades New York

Thursday, February 1----The distinctive music of Italian film composer Ennio Morricone will be showcased at three distinguished New York institutions in the coming days, making New York abuzz with Morricone music magic. Films that feature both well-known and obscure Morricone music soundtracks are being presented at two different film series at the Museum of Modern Art and the Film Forum. At Radio City Music Hall, the composer himself makes his long overdue American concert debut, in a progra...

Producer Christine Vachon's Killer Life

Tuesday, January 30----Coming on the heels of the Sundance Film Festival, the film world's annual love fest with American indie cinema, it was perfect timing for the Jacob Burns Film Center to invite veteran indie producer Christine Vachon to give a talk as part of the Center's Women Filmmakers series. Drawing on experiences from her recently published tell-all book on the inner workings of the indie film scene, A KILLER LIFE, the prolific Vachon was in fine form as she was interviewed on stage...

Artist's Film Projected On Museum's Modernist Walls

Tuesday, January 16----On the coldest night of the year so far, the Museum of Modern Art and Creative Time, the New York–based public art organization, unveiled the newest film from visual artist Doug Aitken, which is being projected onto the Museum's modernist building in midtown Manhattan. The film SLEEPWALKERS, which features an international cast including Tilda Swinton and Donald Sutherland, will have free outdoor screenings on the Museum's facade for the next four weeks...a spectacula...

Film Critics Screen Their Favorite Documentaries

Saturday, January 13----The Museum of the Moving Image, in collaboration with the New York Film Critics Circle, is presenting a on-going series of critical choices of influential documentaries, introduced by members of the Circle. This weekend, three influential films, two from the recent past, and one a silent film classic, are being showcased in the Critics Choice: Great Documentaries series.

Remembering A Master of Light

user
Thursday, January 11----2006 marked the final curtain for many film greats. But perhaps none of them was as influential, or as endearing to both professionals and the public, as the renowned Swedish cinematographer Sven Nykvist. Known as the “Master of Light”, Nykvist brought a shimmering yet subtle beauty to his filmed work, particularly his long and prolific collaboration with fellow Swedish film icon Ingmar Bergman....one of most glorious collaborations in film history. To salute the im...

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...

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...

New York Times Arts and Leisure Weekend Begins On Friday

Tuesday, January 2----The New York Times Arts and Leisure Weekend, which begins this coming Friday, is fast becoming one of New York’s most anticipated cultural events of the new year. With a mix of discussions, panels, concert performances and other delights in the fields of theater, dance, film and music, the Weekend is bringing a post-Holidays lift to the Big Apple. The Arts and Leisure Weekend will present several film programs….a combination of screenings of some of the year’s most...

A Film Oasis In The New York Suburbs

Saturday, December 30-----For Westchester County film buffs, and intrepid New Yorkers not adverse to going off-island, the Jacob Burns Film Center is a distinctive cultural resource in the heart of New York’s northern suburbs. For the past five years, the Film Center has offered a serious alternative to the megaplex monotony of film theaters outside of Manhattan, with unique special programs and the best of independent and international cinema. This is clearly evident in just the first we...

The Met At The Movies

Thursday, December 28-----In a bold new experiment designed to reach younger audiences, New York's famed Metropolitan Opera will offer several of its most celebrated productions to an international network of movie theaters. The first of these will be the December 30th presentation of Mozart’s THE MAGIC FLUTE. The production, directed by stage and film director Julie Taymor, will be beamed live from the stage of The Metropolitan Opera directly into movie theaters around the globe. All of ...

VIVA PEDRO: An Almodóvar Sampler

Tuesday, December 26----Following the international success of Pedro Almodovar’s acclaimed femme fest VOLVER, arthouse distributor Sony Pictures Classics is presenting a national tour of eight Almodovar classics in spanking new 35mm prints. New Yorkers can sample the series when it unspools at the Walter Reade Theater starting tomorrow through January 3. VIVA PEDRO, presented by the Film Society of Lincoln Center, is a wonderful way to see out the old year, or ring in the new one. And with ...

Spending The Holidays With Woody Allen

Saturday, December 23----When I was growing up Jewish in Brooklyn, New York in the 1960s, Christmas Day meant only two things…..Chinese food and going to a movie. In those halcyon days when Christmas was more of a religious event than an excuse to go shopping, almost all restaurants, stores and other commercial venues were closed on Christmas Day.....with the exception of Chinese restaurants and most movie theaters. So, it became a Jewish tradition (and the only option in town) to frequent ...

Museum of Modern Art Presents Holiday Film Classics

Thursday, December 21----The Museum of Modern Art, usually known for its rather highbrow offerings, presents a family-friendly series of Holiday Classics during the busy Christmas/New Year holiday season. Movies for the Holidays, a series of favorites from MoMA’s extensive film collection, will feature screenings in MoMA’s Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters from December 19 through January 2, 2007. Films to be featured in the series include: ELF (2003), directed by Jon Favreau and starring W...

"Actor's Actor" Alan Arkin Honored At Lincoln Center

Tuesday, December 19----Alan Arkin, one of the most respected actors of his generation, makes a rare appearance this evening at New York's Walter Reade Theater. The special evening includes a screening of Arkin's latest hit, the quirky indie comedy LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE, followed by an onstage conversation between the actor and Kent Jones, Associate Director of Programming of the Film Society of Lincoln Center. The evening will also feature clips from Arkin's remarkable career, which has now spa...

Jacques Rivette: A True Cinema Original

Saturday, December 16---A retrospective of the career of French director Jacques Rivette has been unspooling at New York's Museum of the Moving Image since mid November. Several of the director's most ambitious and least known film gems are yet to be screened, as the series continues through the month of December. Intrepid film lovers should run, not walk, to this rare and wonderful series of a true cinema original. Rivette was a one-man film revolution. A critic for the influential film mag...

Tribute To A Movie Music Legend

Thursday, December 14----The Museum of Modern Art continues its grand tradition of honoring visionary artists from Hollywood's golden age, with a 21-film retrospective of the films of famed film score composer Franz Waxman, on the centenary of his birth. FRANZ WAXMAN: MUSIC FOR THE CINEMA opens on Saturday, December 16 and runs through January 17th at the Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters at New York's citadel of culture, the Museum of Modern Art. Franz Waxman was one of the best known and most in...

New York Critics Circle Chooses UNITED 93

Tuesday, December 12---UNITED 93, the harrowing re-enactment of the last hours on one of the doomed planes hijacked on September 11, 2001, has received the nod as Best Picture of the Year, from the New York Critics Circle, considered the most prestigious and influential of all the national film critics associations. The win by UNITED 93, which was echoed last week by the Washington DC Film Critics Association, catapults the docudrama into prime position for multiple Golden Globe and Oscar nomi...

FOX BEFORE THE CODE: The Film Forum Brings Back The Thirties

Saturday, December 9-----Cinema of the early part of the twentieth century existed on two sides of a divide. Silent or sound. Pre-Code and Code. The sexual frankness, moral corruption and sometimes kitchy melodrama of the early sound films of the 1930s have become a kind of treasure of American cinema. The Film Forum, New York's stellar arthouse complex, is currently presenting some of these tawdry treasures in their December film series, FOX BEFORE THE CODE. The FOX, of course, is Twentieth C...
