Want to be a Filmmaker?

user
Making films is a great way to express yourself creatively, work within a fun industry and also make a living while you’re at it. So how do you get into this industry? The answer is often much easier than people think. At a Spike Less conference in Toronto conference a couple of years ago, Mr. Lee addressed this very question from an ambitious film student. This film student stood up and asked her question about breaking into the film industry. It seemed that no matter how hard she searched ...

Making Movies On A Wing And A Prayer

 Monday, November 12--------For Dallas Jenkins, the director and producer of the feature film MIDNIGHT CLEAR, making movies that reflect his Christian values represents both an opportunity and a challenge in the Hollywood film community. “People have got a lot of misconceptions that I am looking to either openly preach or hide Christian messages between the lines”, Jenkins shared at an interview on Sunday afternoon, just prior to the screening of his debut feature MIDNIGHT CLEAR as the Clos...

From AFI: horror ah ah...begins with zombie movie etiquette

user
HORROR: HA-HA By JON KORN, FPS Kodak Connect/Associate Programmer for AFI Online dailies Before the film begins... I'd like to get something off my chest regarding zombie movie behavior etiquette: If you happen to be one of a handful of survivors on the run from relentless zombie attacks AND you happen to get bitten during an unfortunate zombie skirmish. Do everyone a favor -- just admit it. Yes, it's awkward and yes, they will have to shoot you in the head (have to kill the brain, after ...

MIDNIGHT SLAM! Guarantees A Fright

 Saturday/Sunday, August 25 and 26---------The Montreal World Film Festival is an eclectic mix. It is a showcase for the most auteur of auteur films, and yet has a hankering to involve "tout le public" also. On the same evening, a film from a film master will screen at the same time as an upstart indie project from a director rookie to a pulpish genre film. In that sense, the Festival is an accurate reflection of the city where it takes place......an uneasy mixture of genteel French-i...

Final Days For New York Noir

 Friday, August 25------There are still a few days to catch the final  offerings in the NYC NOIR series that has been running at the Film Forum for the past few weeks. Dedicated to a depiction of New York as a place of grit, grays and ghosts, the series offers a tidy endgame of treats, a mix of classics and little known gems. With temperatures expected to hit the 90s in the final dog days of August, New York never looked quite so noir. But at least this NYC is air conditioned.REAR WINDOW (1954...

A Late Summer Fling With French Cinema

 Monday, August 20---------Next to the United States, France (a country about 25% the population) has the world's most prolific and dynamic film industry. And luckily, the interest in French cinema has remained consistently strong, with a new crop of directors, writers and actors making impressions on ever-increasing audiences. For those of us who proudly call themselves "francophones" (like myself),  this is very good news. Still, the number of French feature films and documen...

The Public Screening of Private Movies

 Friday, August 10-------For the fifth year, Anthology Film Archives invites amateurs and professionals alike to share their 8-millimeter, Super 8 or 16-millimeter home movies for its annual Home Movie Day. Decaying images from family vacations, bar mitzvah celebrations, long forgotten family members and other ephemera are the order of the day, with the prevailing ethos that one man's trash is another man's treasure. The only rule is that the home movies must be that, movies, not vide...

The World According To Paul Giamatti

 Wednesday, August 1--------Robert Redford's got Sundance. Robert De Niro's got Tribeca. So why not let Paul Giamatti into that exclusive club? Well, the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) apparently agrees and has scheduled an 8-film series of movies selected by the Oscar nominee (and indie fave) entitled PAUL GIAMATTI SELECTS. The series begins tonight at the BAM Rose Cinemas and continues through September. Giamatti and Brooklyn are actually a perfect fit. Not only is he a longtime res...

Rialto Cinema Classics At MoMA

Monday, July 23-------You may think you know the film that many major film critics chose as the best of last year. But in reality, with little fanfare or certainly Oscar buzz, the film that garnered the most uniform praise from top film scribes was a French thriller, shot in 1959 and set in occupied France during World War II by a director who has been six feet under for more than three decades. That film, ARMY OF SHADOWS, directed by Jean-Pierre Melville, was an astonishingly gritty and involvi...

New York Asian Film Festival Charges Into Town

 Monday, June 25-------New Yorkers have long had a love affair with Asian cinema, so this year's New York Asian Film Festival (NYAFF), which began on Friday at the IFC Center in downtown Manhattan, is sure to cause some waves. While other film societies may concentrate on emotionally aloof dramas or historical pagaents from the Far East, the NYAFF has become one of the city's most exciting film events by celebrating excess: innovative genre films, cutting-edge animation spectaculars and...

More Documentary Reviews and Film Noir Previews

user
Documentary features are beginning to come into their own, not only on the festival circuit but in selected commercial cinemas as well, as more and more perceptive moviegoers, tired of paying ten dollars a shot for mainstream mindlessness, are beginning to look for films that actually have something to say. Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11" was a real ground-breaker when it was awarded the top prize at Cannes two years ago, the first time a documentary film was so recognized at this topper of al...

"America has always been a source of inspiration for world cinema", FESTROIA director Fernanda Silva explained. "We feel it is important to let ...

Christopher Lee To Receive Lifetime Achievement Dolphin Award

 Wednesday, June 6-----Even though he has acted in almost 300 films, ranging from comedies to westerns to sci-fi epics, it is hard to think of Christopher Lee and not instantly conjure up the image of Count Dracula stalking another victim for fresh blood. Lee, now aged 85 and a refined gentleman of the old school, appeared at a Press Conference today at Festroia, slighly scolding the press for typecasting him in the horror genre, which admittedly made his career some 50 years ago. "I tel...

Cannes and Toronto: A Comparison of Two Festivals

user
          When I told friends from home that I planned to come to Cannes to intern with the film festival, they were all jealous, but especially my friends who went to film school: working at a film festival is a film student’s dream, and not only have I now interned here in Cannes, but I have also volunteered at the Toronto International Film Festival. These two experiences have shown me a lot, not only about the film industry, but about the festival circuit and the vast differences ...

Meet the Filmmakers - Terror (and lube) in the aisles - Friday, March 2nd

user
On Friday night I was treated to one of the strongest selections of twisted short films I have ever seen, Cinequest's Mindbenders. Not only were these films disturbing and extremely well produced, but the three directors I met personify everything that is great about independent filmmakers.This game is all about self-promotion, innovation and risk-taking, and Arthur, Ehran and Richard have these qualities in spades.Let's start with Arthur. Here's a fantastic example of self promotion...
