 FESTIVAL NEWS FROM THE CIRCUIT

Death of the Big Screen?
Inspired by the Blog article: ?How Long Until A Feature Film Made on the iPhone is in Theaters? by Peter Hall, our Intern Heather Poole gives her opinion on the future of Filmmaking: The new iPhone 4G is the latest edition to the Apple revolution but is it the beginning of the end for the big screen in cinema? By: Heather Poole, ECU 2011 Festival Intern With new technologies constantly ...

HDSLR Cameras: The Latest Hot Trend
By Rhiannon Hobbins, Festival Manager I was in serious post-festival daze when I first watched G-Technology?s ?Faces of the Festival? film. And I?ve got to admit that I was truly impressed. Sure, it brought back great memories from the festival. But the image quality was amazing and I was intrigued to learn that they filmed it all on a SLR camera. Surely SLR cameras are just for still phot...

ECU Scott Hilier's June Festival Update
With a lot of Europe preparing itself for a nice long summer break we seem to have stepped up a gear and had an incredibly busy month here at ÉCU this month ? and the cool thing is that there appears to be no end in sight as we head down various roads and avenues at warp speed! Last week I was joined at the London Film Academy by Lousia Mayman (director of ÉCU 2010?s Best Student Film) for a...

No Ice or Snow: The Berlinale Outdoors in Summer!
At the 8th Summer Berlinale from July 16 to 19, the Open Air Cinema in Friedrichshain is presenting - in collaboration with radioeins - five highlights from the 60th Berlin International Film Festival's programme. These films have yet to be released in German movie theatres.   Besides Bal (Honey), winner of this year's Golden Bear, three audience favourites will be shown from the Panorama...

 FILM NEWS FROM THE CIRCUIT

Wading Through the Results of Climate Change
by Marc Halperin We had lunch last Saturday with Michael Nash the director of Climate Refugees which has a free screening today at the LA film festival. The film focuses on Bangladesh, Chad, China, Kenya, Tuvalu, and the USA and promises to be a riveting 89 minutes. ?Climate Refugees? is a term few people outside the U.S. military and U.N. circles are familiar with until now. This illumi...

Genius or stupidity? It might be both.
There's a rumor swirling around the blogosphere regarding a front-page story in The New York Times on June 9th about Chevy. I mean, Chevrolet. Apparently, a memo was issued that week urging employees ?? the ones that are left ?? no longer to refer to their employer as Chevy. ?We?d ask that whether you?re talking to a dealer, reviewing dealer advertising, or speaking with friends and family, th...

Do Documentaries Really Matter?
After the intense (and enjoyable) experience of sitting through at least 15 documentary feature films over 4 days at the just concluded AFI-Discovery Channel Documentary Festival, the question organically arose: do documentaries really matter? As someone who trained in documentary filmmaking techniques (and who made a few, best to be forgotten non-fiction nothings) and an admirer of the stamin...

SILVERDOCS Film In Focus: MAKING THE BOYS
Sometimes, it takes time passing for true worth to be revealed. Such is clearly the case with the controversial 1960s play THE BOYS IN THE BAND, which was the first drama to feature openly gay men in their natural habitat of downtown Manhattan. The play, by fledgling writer Mart Crowley, was a cultural watershed in 1968 when it opened in a tiny theater in New York?s West Village. It became no...

LA Film Festival Day 8: The world premiere of TWILIGHT, and an anti-Twilight
While the full moon hung over LA, long black limos descended on Downtown, delivering sacrificial celebrities to a blood-red carpet for the world premiere of arguably the most anticipated box office film in history. But those 'vampires' held no hold over me. I was busy interviewing the real stars of Twilight- the "Twi-hard" fans who'd flown from all around the country, and as far as Cana...

Silverdocs Film In Focus: WAITING FOR SUPERMAN
After you have produced one of the influential documentaries of your generation (and also won an Oscar for it), what do you do for an encore? Well, for Davis Guggenheim, the director of AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH, the rousing documentary that focused on the debate surrounding global warming and climate change (and that resurrected the moribund political career of former vice president Al Gore), th...

Here I go again, picking on poor Wieden + Kennedy.
I feel like I need to start this post by backpedaling. Wieden + Kennedy is one of the greatest ad agencies in the history of advertising. They've done incredible work over years ?? some of the most persuasive, iconic, spectacular advertising that truly moved the marketing communication business forward. And no, I'm not just talking about the "old" Wieden + Kennedy. Last y...
