Zlin Film In Focus: TOMBOY

user
  The Zlin Film Festival, which is entering its final weekend, is most definitely a showcase for emerging directors. There is in fact a competition exclusively devoted to European filmmakers making their first films. However, strong early efforts are studded throughout the program, and none heralds as exciting new talent as French writer/director Céline Sciamma who is presenting her second feature film TOMBOY here in the Features Films For Youth competition. Céline Sciamma, on...

A Showcase Of Classic And Contemporary Italian Cinema

user
  Fellini, Rossellini, Visconti, De Sica, Pasolini, Bertolucci, Antonioni......these are some of the greatest masters of the art of filmmaking. All of the above, and several others, are included in the Days Of Italian Cinema event at the Zlin Film Festival, a true feast for cinemaphiles.

Celebrating The World Of Disney

user
  He is often not given his proper due in film history, but the legacy of Walt Disney, the animator turned entrepreneur, is an amazing story of American cinema and worldwide ambitions. The name itself DISNEY is all one needs to conjure up a certain kind of cinema. From the early classic animation of the 1930s and 1940s to today's digital animation releases, the Disney brand is unlike any other in Hollywood. The studio has, for 70 years, been at the forefront of innovation. To ce...

Growing Up Is A Bitch: Films At Zlin FF

user
   I KILLED MY MOTHER (Xavier Dolan, Canada) For young people today, growing up is more complicated than ever before. Not only is more expected of them, but today's youth is barraged with media images and information that they must learn how to assimilate. Innocence does not  last very long, and for those making the uneasy transition from childhood to young adulthood, the road is a dramatic one. This has been portrayed in many different colors in several of the films I hav...

Zlin FF Film In Focus: BROKEN PROMISE

user
  The stories and lessons of the Holocaust remain a potent subject for films coming from Central Europe. Even almost 70 years after the tragic events unfolded, the interest in the subject and its human lessons remains a potent one in contemporary Czech culture. Now that it is free from the Communist yolk that all but repressed the subject (although the superb SHOP ON MAIN STREET, one of the revival highlights of this year's Festival, is an exception to the rule), Czech filmmakers con...

Wide Screen Splendor: 70MM Films Revived At Zlin Film Festival

user
  It seems amazing, especially in the context of a film festival, that there might be a time in the not so distant future when young people will think of films as something they can download onto their mobile devices and view on their mini screens. Films as big screen events may never completely die, but clearly the trend towards miniaturization has made the wide screen epics of yesteryear seem quaintly anachronistic. Well, as part of its 50th anniversary celebrations, th...
