2011 festival year is off and running in Palm Springs with Deneuve and Potiche opening

user
Opening with Potiche (french film by François Ozon starring french icon Catherine Deneuve) just six days after New Years the Palm Springs Film Festival can probably lay claim to the honor of being the very first such festival of any size or signifigance on the annual international film festival calendar. While this is not a festival one hears too much about, being well off the beaten track and coming at a time when most of us are still recovering from year end Holidaze entertainment ove...

2011 festival year is off and running in Palm Springs

user
Opening just six days after New Years the Palm Springs Film Festival can probably lay claim to the honor of being the very first such festival of any size or significance on the annual international film festival calendar. For readers unfamiliar with the geography of Southern California, most of the lower part of the state is actually a desert and Palm Springs is a kind of extremely upscale oasis in the middle of this desert, a hundred miles away from Los Angeles and halfway to more desert over ...

Where The Streets Have No Name

Director: Vijaykumar Mirchandani.
An emotional journey of one man who has been working tirelessly for the last 20 years trying to help alleviate homelessness in Cairns. A hair raising experience as we get into the lives of these street kids, hear their stories and unfold the bitter reality that lies beneath this beautiful paradise island. It is a dark, intimate and unforgettable journey revealing the truth backed with real life incidents, diverse stories and first hand interaction with key people who helped make this mission impossible successful. Where the streets have no name today tells a different story!

TORN FROM THE FLAG? Klaudia Kovacs' Film is Torn from History

user
by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent   Documentary films are supposed to wake us up -- usually to some strange sub-culture (read: the world of Baby Beauty Pageants or Professional Eating Contests) -- to give a glimpse at how remarkably bizarre human beings can be. Typically with films, we're allowed to become voyeurs, stare agape at the amusing spectacle of mankind. Not so with TORN FROM THE FLAG, filmmaker Klaudia Kovacs' chronicle of the 1956 October Revolution in Hungary that...

Las Vegas Film Festival in 110 Heat, Yes, That Sucks

user
Do we give a sh*t about Vegas and its film festival? If you're Hollywood, you kind of look at it like an artifact on the artifact. A facsimile hatched together for the Sunset Boulevard  devotee/autograph-seeking/souvenir-collecting fan-based crowd.   Which is to say that in 110 F degree heat, stuck in Hooter's with a bunch of paunchy middle aged doofs looking for p-u-s-s-y, there are many other things one of the film persuasion might consider doing... laundry, for exampl...

Secrets And Lies: The Pat Tillman Story

user
  It is one of the defining news stories of the Iraq/Afghanistan wars….when all-star football player Pat Tillman walked away from a multi-million dollar contact with the Arizona Cardinals in May 2002 to join the Army, he became an instant symbol of patriotic fervor following the events of 9-11. However, when his promising future ended in unexpected and unnecessary tragedy, the Tillman family refused to accept the “official” story being offered by the military and polit...

Human Rights Watch Film Festival Seeks "Accountability and Justice"

user
Last July, the nonprofit group Human Rights Watch put out a hefty report drawn from its prior two decades of watching dogs in some 20 countries. Called Selling Justice Short, the dossier showed why accountability was a good thing for peace and, if nothing else, could help heal victims by acknowledging their anguish. I didn't read it – nor likely did you – but the Human Rights Watch Film Festival supplies some visual Cliff's Notes. This year it gives witness to human rights violations ...

Call for Entries
Features and Shorts
 [And in case you're wondering, short films are 30 minutes or less. Features run at least 75 minutes. If you're in the middle...sorry. Maybe next year, we'll add a "long shorts" section to the festival!]

All submissions will be reviewed by a panel of hardened horror freaks - we'll get back to you, by December 23, 2010 at the latest, and let you know whether you've been accepted. If you want, we can also review the film in detail on TrashCity.org; that is entirely optional, but if you're looking to get buzz started, that would be a good way, since the site gets 1,000+ visitors per day. Let us know with your entry if you'd rather we didn't do that though, and we'll happily keep quiet.

What's in it for me, you say? Well, the winner of both the Best Short and Best Feature will receive a domestic and International distribution deal from Brain Damage Films and Maxim Media International. Other film distribution companies and studios are invited to attend and may be interested in your film. We are working with sponsors to offer a cash prize and we will post prizes when they are available.
There is no better way to get your film seen by horror fans. Other entries may also be offered contracts, if they're deemed worthy, but the winners get that as a guarantee. There'll also be an 'Audience Choice' award for the best single film, be it short or feature. We haven't quite worked out what the prize is for that yet though!

Any questions, please feel free to email us, at director@phxfearfilmfestival.com or you can call 602-399-9500, and we'll happily answer your queries.

Slim and Lena

Director: Mollye Asher.
“Slim and Lena” is a modern film noir set in the grit and glamour of the neo-burlesque scene. The story begins, narrated by Slim, when he returns to NYC to settle a beef with Big Daddy, the proprietor of a hip burlesque lounge on the Lower East Side. When Slim discovers that his long lost true love, sweet Lena, has become a burlesque dancer; the typical roles of a noir are turned on their head. Packed with love, sex, and redemption, “Slim and Lena” is the story of how Lena finds her voice and becomes the heroine and narrator of her own story.
