Interviewing the AURO-3D team in Cannes

Pixar Outdoes Itself With Inside Out Premiere

Pixar Outdoes Itself With Inside Out Premiere On Monday, May 18th, Cannes Film Festival celebrated Animation Day to show off the talents and logistics of all things animation. The premiere movie at the Grand Lumiere Theatre was Inside Out, Disney-Pixar's new film about all of these emotions we have in our head like joy, anger, fear, sadness and disgust. It travels into the mind of a young girl named Riley, and portrays each emotion as their own person. Anger naturally shoots fire out...

Top Movies Thus Far

  by, Cameron Lui   Ive seen 7 movies at the festival and counting, so here's my thoughts on the best ones so far.    1. The Lobster-hands down the best film in the festival thus far. It has a clear agenda that is executed with aggression and creativity. The acting was flawless, the writing beautiful, and it packs one of the biggest punches in cinema to date.    2. The Irrational Man-beautifully depressing film that has the honesty that only Woody Allen...

The Under-appreciated Short Film Genre

  Can you name a single famous short film? If you can, it may take a while to get there. Short films have been and probably will always be unfortunately overshadowed by features but are a nice change of pace in the film industry. Here in Cannes, in the enormous market place lies a shorter queue of only about a dozen, waiting for their chance into the short film corner. Consisting of fifty separate computers and hundreds of titles, it is a quiet pleasant personal theatre to enjoy shorts f...

Surkhaab, Review: Where are the feathers?

Surkhaab, Review: Where are the feathers? First things first: the title. It is an Urdu/Persian word, also part of Hindi, that means the ruddy sheldrake/shelduck bird. Literally translated, ‘surkh’ means red and ‘aab’ means water. There is a river in north-west Asia that is also called Surkhaab, which is easy to link to the meaning. The bird has rare type of feathers, and so, someone who has special qualities is said to be possessing 'surkhaab ke par' (surkhaab&...
