Beginning his fifth year as the Celeste Bartos Chief Curator of the legendary Department Of Film at New York’s Museum Of Modern Art (MoMA), Raj (as he is affectionately known by friends and colleagues) can look back at significant accomplishments during his tenure and substantial challenges ahead. “The film world has changed so much since I started this job”, Roy shared with me in an interview in his intimate, no-frills office. “...

The BUFF Blog (July 2011)

Who would be a media mogul ey? The last few weeks and months has seen the likes of Simon Cowell and Rupert Murdoch become the story for the wrong reasons. For months, the press were told who was in and who was out in the game of musical chairs regarding this year’s X Factor judges. Eventually we said goodbye to Danni Minogue and Cheryl Cole and hello to Kelly Rowland and Tulisa Contostavlos (Peter Dickson, the voice of X-Factor will certainly have his hands full announcing her name in full e...

A Fitting Tribute

Director: Daniel Cormack.
Black comedy. Hardened-pro news reporter Tammy initiates the novice reporter Niall into the art of the 'death-knock' - knocking on the doors of the recently bereaved to get a news story.
Niall's lack of success has put his job under threat and Tammy has been detailed to improve his hit rate. When Niall death-knocks Mrs Wright he finds not the grieving, hostile mother he expected but a warm welcome, good food and a comfortable bed, but what's really going on and what are Mrs Wright's true motives?

Amelia and Michael

Director: Daniel Cormack.
A married couple appear to have all the trappings of wealth, success and happiness, but both Amelia and Michael have secrets from each other. Michael drops off Amelia for lunch, but once the car is out of sight, Amelia removes her wedding ring and travels to an alternative destination. Michael, however, appears the perfect husband, organising a romantic dinner. But things are not always as they first appear. Amelia goes again to her secret destination: a hospital, where she is visiting a Lover who has been paralysed in a motorbike accident. Michael’s dinner is with a Call-Girl. After she has left his hotel room, he tries to sleep but can’t and is disturbed by a phone call from his work colleague Francis who has discovered his whereabouts. Amelia uncovers evidence of Michael’s duplicity, but before she can act, the phone rings. She rushes to the hospital, but arrives to find her Lover has already died. Amelia returns to find Michael in the kitchen, who mistakenly assumes his infidelity is the cause of Amelia’s distress. He tries to explain but she silences him. Amelia and Michael sit in the car in silence. A motorbike stops next to them; an incidental detail of the opening scene which now acquires a poignant and arresting meaning - representing the lost vitality of youth and love. AMELIA AND MICHAEL addresses the discrete, multi-faceted and often contradictory personas people present to each other and asks whether it is possible to truly know another person or even yourself.

We Care Film Festival on Disability Issues

#

I am the Media Consultant for the We Care Film Festival on Disability Issues, which is unique in the sense that it is not an annual event.

We collect films in four categories - up to one minute, up to five minutes, up to 30 minutes, and up to one hour. We then take them to educational, social and disability institutions.

Awards are also presented to the three best films in each category, on 3 May which marks World Disability Day.

We charge a small amount for those who enter their films, but we do not charge any money for screening the films and workshop - except for travel and stay if it outside the city in which we live - New Delhi (capital of India).

Meet The New Kings of Hollywood

user
When your movie defies the odds and sweeps the major categories at both the Oscars and the British Academy Awards (as in Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Screenplay), there is no question that as a producer you see your stock rise. For the trio of producers of THE KING'S SPEECH, a decidedly indie film with a budget of less than $15 million, the gates to Hollywood are now open, and they are stepping through. Iain Canning is a 31-year-old Londoner who has mainly made low ...

Top Ten Foreign Film Releases In North America

user
  Figures are now emerging of the Top Ten international titles that saw the light of day in theatrical venues in the US and Canada in 2010. As one would expect, most of the films share the English language and come from the United Kingdom. Of the ten films cited in order of their theatrical box office take, three comprise the Swedish-language adaptations of the phenomenally successful Stieg Larsson trlogy. One film with French production origins (BABIES) and one title from Italy (I AM ...

Producers Guild Prize Creates Oscar Upset

user
  With THE SOCIAL NETWORK winning top prize at both last week's Golden Globe Awards and with other critics associations, the inevitability of its winning the Best Picture Oscar seemed more than assured. However, this past weekend's upset win for its closest challenger has now made the Oscar race less certain then it was a few days ago. The Producers Guild of America (PGA) is one of the most reliable guilds when it comes to predicting Oscar success. It is the only one that actually...

The Danes and after at BAFTA

user
London's equivalent to Hollywood's Academy is called-for short- BAFTA and it occupies luxurious premises on the historic Piccadilly street (not to be confused with the nearby Piccadilly Circus, which has nothing to do with P.T.Barnum) in the heart of the British capital. For many years it was considered a rather staid place and organisation, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, but in recent years after some interior revamping and probably thanks to some lively new personnel on the...
