Johannes Holzhausen’s new documentary film The Great Museum portrays one of the preeminent museums of the world: the Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien (KHM). The film undertakes an extended journey behind the scenes of this fascinating and unique institution with its multifaceted day-to-day life and its rich cast of characters. Holzhausen’s portrait frames the KHM as a prism through which to reflect upon cultural policy, the institutionalized industry of art and culture and the role of...

Four workers climb a 20 meters high gantry crane inside the hangar of the INNSE, the last active factory in Milan. They threaten to throw themselves down to stop the dismantling of the machineries and the closure of the factory they work in. The hangar is surrounded by dozens of policemen and supporters from all over Italy and Europe. The four workers resist for 8 days at 40° in only a few square meters. They resist because they have a clear strategy and an organized army. They know perfectly their territory and their enemy. It is not a simple struggle: there are clear rules, it is a workable paradigm for all forms of struggle.
FFFilm Project (Family Fiction Film Project) is a cycle of video and film, which explores several possibilities around the topic of family/familiar: documentary or fiction movies about the intimate, the personal or private, family footage, home movies, self-portraits / about identities, family as a landscape, alternative families, etc. In the era of the democratization of the use of image the objects produced are increasingly on the intimacy and in the precariousness of the production resources. There is a new way to make films and to tell stories. Public and private or global and local, stand in a constant transformation in their inter-connection at the same they have a tremendous impact on the way of producing, creating and living. We believe that at this moment, this kind of cycle is full of sense; it will be a moment for sharing ways of doing and perspectives which concerns are to do with fragility, intimacy and precarity. This cycle is open both to amateur and professional videos.

True to David Reuben's classic book "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex * But Were Afraid to Ask " we love movies that give us new insights on topics like sexual liberation, erotic fantasies, BDSM, sexual shame, cultural sexual differences, the "new" prudery, pornography, the impact of the internet porn on our sexuality and sex activism. The discourse with the filmmakers and actors is very important to us. Therefore we try to invite as many protagonists and directors as possible to our festival and thus offer the audience the opportunity for a dialogue.
The selection-commitee is looking forward to all kind of films about all kinds of sexuality. Any durations and genres are welcome and can be submitted, fiction, shorts, experimental and documentaries.
Last year I had the guilty pleasure of interviewing my friends Kathy Brew and Roberto Guerra about their latest documentary, Design Is One: Lella & Massimo Vignelli. The film, which played to critical acclaim at Manhattan's IFC Film Center, explores the Italian-born couple's partnership that has distinguished them among the world's most influential designers.
On January 10, 2014, Guerra lost his six-month battle with pancreatic cancer. Brew had noted dur...

Watching Which Way Is the Front Line from Here? The Life and Time of Tim Hetherington is safer than covering combat, but the HBO documentary by author, journalist and filmmaker Sebastian Junger (The Perfect Storm) is not danger-free. It contains images of maimed bodies that may haunt you on a dark night.
But it also reminds you why you must miss the empathic British war photographer/filmmaker terribly. On April 20, 2011, scant
weeks after his and Junger’s chronicle of Am...
January 16th is rapidly approaching, and with it, the 86th Academy Award nominations. On the documentary feature short list are such box office and critical standouts as Blackfish, Stories We Tell and The Act of Killing. So too is Morgan Neville's tuneful 20 Feet From Stardom, which is pulling its share of the smart money.
Here's what Neville had to say about his frontrunning contender: http://www.thalo.com/articles/view/751/20_feet_from_stardom_filmmaker_neville_morgan

In Thailand each year, there might be one or two documentary features released in limited cinema. Meanwhile documentary films have been hilightened by International film festival in the recent years and have become popular genre due to its superb quality to convey the truth and voice of the people.

: Silvia Malagrino.
Director Silvia Malagrino examines the long-term effects and repercussions of Argentina's 1970s state terrorism through a combination of intimate witness narration, interviews, documentary and re-created footage. The narration is based on factual letters written by the director Silvia Malagrino and writer Monica Flores Correa, both friends who fled the country at different times.
"History repeats itself, "the first as tragedy, then as farce." Finnish director Arto Halonen apparently drew on Marx's famed maxim when he made his 2012 documentary about doping in cross-country skiing, When Heroes Lie, and followed it up with this year's black comedy on the same topic, A Patriotic Man (Isänmaallinen mies). How fitting that these two films also explore individuals as vehicles of collectives -- and how this ideal can zigzag off-piste.
