Wallabout

user
New York is abuzz with news about the arrival of a more famous festival, Tribeca, but this past Sunday night, the film-goers of Park Slope were instead asking, "What about Wallabout?" This festival now in its second year is sponsored by the Pratt Institute, and on Sunday night in a very "Brooklyn" bar complete with two bars--one loungey one downstairs and another with folding chairs set up in rows--16 student films selected from over 75 submissions captivated the audie...

Welcome to San Sebastian... Don't Forget Your Umbrella!

user
Oh, how I love film festivals. Or, more precisely, how I love when they invade the town that I call home. My first festival was Toronto: I worked as a volunteer behind the scenes, showing people to their seats. Toronto could never compare to Cannes, the first festival I saw as a journalist, the first time I worked with fest21. Cannes was all glamor and sparkle: we waited for weeks as we learnd which films would be premiering there, who would be coming. We watched as the red carpet wa...

Why Go To Toronto?

user
Why not go to Toronto in September? Apparently, the real question is, why go? In an impromptu survey of representatives at the Cannes market, the nearly unanimous answer to questions regarding plans to go to the Toronto International Film Festival this year was a resounding "No."Some groups, such as PRO Chile, explained that because they were new on the scene, they may not be ready for Toronto. A representative from the booth stated that Cannes is their first experience, and while it h...

The Drake International Film Festival, 2007

user
The conference on the new Drake International Film Festival at the Italian pavilion started, as all real Italian conferences should, about forty-five minutes late. That’s not to say, however, that the press members in attendance were not entertained. On the contrary, representatives from the festival, including the president, Francesco De Lorenzo himself, sat around the small pavilion area with the attendees, answering questions about the brochures covered in beautiful pictur...

Mio Fratello é Figlio Unico

                 Although Mio Fratello é Figlio Unico tells the story of two brothers, pitted against each other because of political beliefs, reactions to the film, surprisingly, described it as “not too weighty in general,” and “excellent, a lot of humor.” In fact, one audience member went so far as to say that “generally, the subjects are too heavy at Cannes. It was good to see something funny.” How can a film that bases its entire story around revolution, fascist...

Ken Feinberg at the Cannes Film Festival

user
                The Cannes International Film Festival has almost nothing in common with the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles and Hollywood, and yet, people tend to treat each other in the same way: every man for himself. When someone takes time out of their schedule to speak to you, knowing that you are not going to buy their movie or advance their career in some way, that person is someone who is worth talking to. This was the sort of situation that led me to Ken Feinberg, write...

Cannes and Toronto: A Comparison of Two Festivals

user
          When I told friends from home that I planned to come to Cannes to intern with the film festival, they were all jealous, but especially my friends who went to film school: working at a film festival is a film student’s dream, and not only have I now interned here in Cannes, but I have also volunteered at the Toronto International Film Festival. These two experiences have shown me a lot, not only about the film industry, but about the festival circuit and the vast differences ...

Ce n'est pas que les films

                   « Ce n’est pas que les films. » L’une des premières choses que mon patron nous a dit le premier jour de notre stage avec  fest21.com me semblait bizarre : c’était bien pour le Festival International de Cannes que je travaillais… n’est-ce pas ? Qu’est-ce qu’il peut traiter d’autre ? En fait, cela avait changé la façon dont j’allais regarder le festival entier, et maintenant, après quelques jours du stage, travaillant à la coulis...
