Screenings Under The Stars

 Friday, August 31------One of the unique (and most popular) programs of the Montreal World Film Festival is its CINEMA A LA BELLE ETOILE (SCREENINGS UNDER THE STARS) series, held each evening on the Esplanade de la Place des Arts. It has become a Montreal tradition to bring one's folding chairs to view a mix of Hollywood, European and Quebec films in an open-air celebration of cinema. The fact that the screenings are free to the public and attract a mix of cinemaphiles, Festival visitors and t...

The Poet Of Alienation

 Thursday, August 2--------Michelangelo Antonioni, the Italian director whose chilly depictions of alienation were among the most cherished artistic breakthrough of international cinema, died earlier this week in his home in Rome.

Walk outs at Cannes (not to mention...

Gitai and Me

user
So, I met the famous Israeli Amos Gitai who made 30 films. I am now shooting the special classes that he has at Impro acting school. I was at first a bit sceptical about the whole project. Shooting a classroom is (still) not my ideas of cinematical fun. But I got to make a few out-of-the-ordinary shots, especially since Ilan the producer/director kindly rented my a tele lense. I also got to shoot four ten minute one shot shorts which was AWSOME, but also kind of tiring, jumping from location to ...
