user
25th Mar del Plata Internacional Film Festival From 13th to 21st November, 2010 The only Latin American Film Festival with “A” status was conceived in 1954 due to the need to reflect the Argentinean Cinema universe, as well as the international cinematographic scenario. Year after year, the Festival established itself as a vital exhibition of the development and exchange of the film industry and audiovisual arts.

Rome Opens to Protests!

user
  Last night saw the open of the Rome International Film Festival. But during the red carpet opening, thousands of protesters blocked the red carpet and stars Keira Knightley and Eva Mendes were forced to enter the cinema through a back door.   A local filmmaker this morning told me: "Here the Rome Film Festival has been quite miserable (as usual) as yesterday there was a strike of cinema producers and directors that occupied the red carpet. There were over 2,000 peo...

An Italian Diva In Montreal

user
  The word diva is often used these days to denote bad behavior and outsized arrogance but in its original incarnation, it was coined to described someone whose artistic gifts were, in fact, divine….a gift from God.

As with her...

Rome Film Fest: Starting at the Top

user
Most festivals, in their debut year, have a modest agenda and try to keep expectations at a low pitch. Not so the Rome Film Fest, which is approaching its inaugural session with the velocity of an unstoppable train.It has always seemed curious to Americans why some of Europe’s largest cities have not had a major film festival attached to them. Why, we wonder, did it take decades for Paris, the most cinephile of cities, to launch its own film event? Why are there no major film festivals in such...
