2011 My Sundance film festival

user
This is an overview of my 2011 Sundance experience  For Europeans, heading to a remote mining town now ski resort and festival headquarters in Park City, Utah, tucked away in the Wasatch mountains outside of Salt Lake City, it's no simple journey. It entails careful planning several months in advance, serious budgetary calculation to secure a bed in those expensive shared- condos, and blocking extra time to your return schedule as flipping time zones wrecks havoc with your metabolism a...

Berlinale Panorama 2011 with Renowned Directors, Three Films on India and Many New Discoveries

user
Now that the programme is almost complete it can be said that in the aftermath of the financial crisis truly independent cinema is at an advantage. The themes of many first films are daring and hence inspiring, as seen in the work of Israeli filmmaker Michal Aviad who, set against the backdrop of the interminable Palestinian-Israeli conflict, has her protagonists work through traumas in Lo Roim Alaich (Invisible), or with French director Céline Sciamma whose Tomboy portrays the coming of age of...

Funny With A Dose of Acid: Blake Edwards

user
  Blake Edwards, the American director whose comedic films were always presented with a dose of acid, passed away in his Los Angeles home yesterday. In a career of highs and lows, Edwards carved a particular niche as a funny man with a dark underside and a dramatist who sometimes injected humor into dark tales of desperation. His 1961 film BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S, a huge success despite the smoothing out of the edges of its bohemian party girl Holy Gollightly, is a true classic of American...

Hommage To Nathalie Baye in New York

user
What is it about French actresses, that they grow even more beautiful and, arguably, more talented with age. Jeanne Moreau and Catherine Deneuve are but two examples of this gorgeous gallic phenomenon, where their later roles take on even greater gravitas as the subtle lines of their face change, their voices lowers a register and their once all-too-fragile beauty slightly hardens and becomes as enduring as a Greek sculpture. But blood courses through their veins and passion, if not only...

The Indie Spirit

#
From Todd Reynolds, who played Detective Bud Flanek... So yesterday afternoon saw a wrap on the shooting of the short Lee Goldberg film Remaindered. Today, as I bask in the afterglow, sipping a cup of Sassafras tea, I cannot help but reflect on how nice it is to be involved in interesting projects. To forge new friendships and cement old ones. To be around creative people, working together in good humor on something that they love.It's very exciting to see what is happening in the Ohio Riv...

REMAINDERED Makes News

#
The Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer reported on REMAINDERED today. They said, in part: "Remaindered" is about a once famous and successful author who is on a downward spiral in his career. He is in the midst of a self-funded book tour, which is humbling for the author. The author then meets a fan, and the encounter turns murderous in the comedy/mystery film. "Remaindered" takes its name from the term for a book being relegated to a store's bargain bin. The film ...

The British Urban Film Festival - August Blog

user
Who would be a film festival director ey? It was always going to be a chaotic period once the deadline for submissions closed on Sunday July 25 at midnight. It was even extended to 5pm the next day. Add to that filming with Lateef Lovejoy for the festival and the debut of ‘Buff on Tour’ in Cricklewood at 7.30pm the next day also - and the phrase ‘killing hours’ comes to mind, a phrase which embodies the amount of energy being exhausted – and shared in equal measure by this year's fes...
