Sandra Hebron's Video Introduction to next London Fest

user
Strange as it may seem, one of the things that's almost as enjoyable as selecting the films for our programme, and almost as argued over, is the annual decision as to what the design of the Festival's marketing materials should be. As you'll see, this year we've shamelessly hijacked a series of quotes from some of our favourite filmmakers - Festival alumni, each of whom seemed to us to suggest something of the essence of the Festival.The first of these quotations, from our late and much loved fo...

Sarajevo Film Festival 2008 - Poppy pops up

user
Fifth time on Sarajevo Film Festival well known British film director once again proves his visits. Well, he's not a man for celebrity glamour. In life as in his films, he likes to keep things real and he is very English.-“It is a special place and there are number of reasons. Generally I think Sarajevo is a unique kind of place. The festival was born out of extraordinary tragedy and no other festival that I am aware has it. The nature of the city is very energetic and I find it very enriching...

The final class production of the fest, "The Other Boleyn Girl", (Non competition) an opulent costume drama set at the court of the most famous of all British Kings, Henry VIII, (who reigned from 1509 – 1547) has echoes reminiscent of the Golden Age of Hollywood when the likes of eminently upper crust Englishmen such as George Sanders played sneering Nazi officers, and flamboyant Australians like Errol Flynn portrayed gunslingers in Dodge City --and never mind the displaced accents...

BERLIN JURY SHOOK BY DESERTIONS AS BIER AND BONNAIRE GO A.W.O.L - Part 2

user
Gavras was here again in 2002 with the hard-hitting and under-rated  “Amen” which tells the story of papal collusion in the German mass murder of the Jews. The poster for that film, showing a cross and a Swastika intertwined, was even more controversial than the film itself. In short, Costa-Gavras is no stranger to this long-running festival.  An interesting sidelight on the this Grecian born director’s name: He was actually born in Greece in 1933 under the name of  Konstantinos Gavras,...
