Mumbai Mantra-CineRise Screenwriting Programme 2015: It all begins with a story, and then …
Names, names and more names. And frankly, Anjum Rajabali, should consider an alternate career as a compère. Not many could rattle off name after name of film personalities and their films with such élan and in such fluent English. And even then, had the audience at the J.W.

This year’s Cannes sketches took off with the European Audiovisual Observatory, where the panelists discussed A Fistful of Euros and The Future of Film Financing in Europe.
I envisioned the creative inability to access finance markets, the digging of consumer trenches with no fiscal incentives where the players in the common landscape seemed to evolve from crowd funders. People participating in works of art is important to the health of society, and intellectual property rights is im...

By Moira Sullivan
After days of domination by "Carol" among selected critics Hou Hsiao Hsien's "The Assassin " moves a few points ahead of Todd Haynes and surpasses the water mark that has been consistent for days.

During the festival here in Cannes, there is a whole other world outside of the screenings. However, this world is only accessible to those with a badge. A winding line is always present outside the palais and market but on the first day, my cinephile badge (one that allows me to go to certain film screenings) did not allow me to get in.
