13.30 - The Fake de Sang–Ho Yeon (Corea do Sul) – 110 min - CF/OE – VO leg. ingl|port
The sophomore feature from South Korean animator Sang-ho Yeon (The King of Pigs) is a blistering critique of organized religion, set in a rural village where a manipulative church minister schemes to defraud his flock.
50% of Americans have less than $500 in their savings accounts, while most of the world survives off of $2.00 a day.
Raising the minimum wage to $15.00 is a start, creating affordable housing and education, another, equal pay for women only makes sense, as it is 2014 for God’s sake, and women do make up the majority of the American workplace. Teaching financial planning in grade school should be mandatory, while creating manufacturing jobs in the US is defin...
www: wail, woe, waste
Siyapaa, spelt variously as siapa, seapa, siyaapaa, siyapa, etc., is a Punjabi word that means ‘wailing’. This film, which was earlier titled Aman ki Asha (meaning peace hoped for, Aman and Asha also being common names in Pakistan/India and the names of the lead characters in the film), swings so dramatically between farce and bathos that the audience is bound to wail time and again.
Remade, with some obvious adaptation/localisation, from Only...

Keith Collins & Rony Seikaly
Saturday night at legendary worldwide venue & NYC ultra-club Sankeys easily became the “IT” spot. With a lineup of celebrity DJ’s, looking down on the dance floor in the VIP mezzanine was easily stapled as the spot to be. Actor Keith Collins was celebrating his recent comedy film “The Jersey Devil” which he plays the lead role of the new devil taking over NJ, while Former NBA Star & now A-list DJ Rony Seikaly spun beat...

In the course of the Oscar night festivities on Sunday a slightly sombre note was sounded with a brief section reminding viewers of the recent passing of celebrated film personalities, among them Seymour Philip Hoffman, Feb. 2, of substance abuse at 44; and thirties child star Shirley Temple; Feb. 11, of natural causes at 85. The Hungarian press wryly noted that two truly towering figures of world cinema, directors Alain Resnais of France and Hungarian motion picture ma...

I get invited to a lot of social events as a journalist / publicist, but there is nothing quite like the Oscars. Excitement is in the air, everyone is full of wonder, looking forward to this fairytale-like evening with its never ending magic. The unexpected always happens just to keep things fresh year after year ( just likeU2 performing live on stage.) The 86th Oscars was really by far one of the best ever produced in Hollywood.

Most of us have heard about the possible cancer-causing properties of plastic water bottles. As the sun heats up the plastic, it releases toxins into the pure, natural water that otherwise would be healthy for you. Our body also retains water, which shows up as extra pounds, but for the purpose of hydrating the cells and removing toxicity that is stored mainly in fat cells. However, regular water molecules do not have an easy time penetrating th...

You may not have heard of Life After Pi, but you certainly remember Life of Pi, which continues to dazzle in VFX and revenues.
Life After Pi, from now-bankrupt studio Rhythm + Hues, is the story of a movie made by hand by 100's of VFX artists whose movie won an Oscar in 2013, only to find themselves out of work in 2014. Out of work on a picket line outside the Academy Awards this year. It is a 30-minute documentary made by the studio ...

Commentary by Alex Farba Deleon For <filmfestivals.com>
Watching the Oscar results on television at the Grand Budapest Hotel Marriott the best coverage was offered not by CNN or BBC but by alternate channel SkyNews.
The hot film news from Hollywood was up against other heavy stories, the crisis in Ukraine and another Oscar -- Pretorius the legless olympic athlete on trial for spousecide in South Africa. All of which made it seem somewhat less important in the overall scheme o...
As screenwriters, we wanted our scripts bought and made. But, we don't know any producers, so you stop writing and start directing and producing your own films.
Of course, the problem is always funding. You need a lot of money to shoot a short, let alone a feature. Well, we also had a problem with the idea of a select few judges deciding if you are going to make it 'in' to a festival.
So we decided to make a festival where the community decides what is good and what to fund!
