Tribeca 2010: From Pipelines to Film Culture?

user
It belongs to our common sense perception that distribution and production technologies develop more rapidly than the content they cover and that great competence in technologies is not equivalent to the mastery of creative content. Knowing grammar and vocabulary or different types of filters and lenses is a necessary but not a sufficient condition for creative output. Over the last few years in virtually all related film festival seminars there have been discussions about the new distribution p...

user
  The Canadian music documentary RUSH: BEYOND THE LIGHTED STAGE has won the Heineken Audience Award at the 9th Tribeca Film Festival, which concludes today. The award includes a cash prize of $25,000 for the film's co-directors Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn.

Alex Gibney's Tribeca Trifecta

user
  Alex Gibney Last week, Tribeca Film Festival founder Jane Rosenthal jokingly referred to this year's Festival as "The Alex Gibney Film Festival". Gibney, a respected documentarian who won the Oscar for the film TAXI TO THE DARKSIDE, has three films featured at this year's event. In MY TRIP TO AL-QAEDA, Gibney adapts an acclaimed one-man theater piece by playwright Lawrence Wright to offer a deft and alarming look at...

Metropia Director Tarik Saleh talks with Fest 21 about 9/11, why he set Metropia in Europe, and Paris Hilton…

user
FEST21 (Suzanne Lynch): You said at the press conference, "(Metropia) is about those years when the world went insane, it's about the past. And when you are afraid, you do irrational things." But Metropia is set in 2024... so to what degree is it about the past? TARIK SALEH: When 9/11 happened... I think that, in Europe, for example, we have a tradition of criticizing the United States, almost on a reflex basis. It doesn't matter what the United States does or how it r...

Economic blues got you counting your pennies? Volcanic ash delaying your flight to New York? Can't get motivated to get dressed and come downtown? Afraid to be seen in public? Well, if you are a cinema lover and cannot quite overcome your own neuroses or spewing volcanos to attend this year's Tribeca Film Festival, don't despair.....the Festival is now coming to you.

European Films Shine At Tribeca FF

user
 Soul Kitchen (Fatih Akin, Germany)    This year’s Tribeca Film Festival, which is currently in the middle of its 12 day run in New York City, boasts a strong representation of both veteran and emerging European talents. As a whole, the Festival offers a tantalizing check of the pulse of current trends and styles in European filmmaking. How these films will fare in the US market is far from certain, but for the next week, European cinema rules in downtown New York.   The na...

Starting on April 30th, SPORK, a charming and quirky film about a 14-year old hermaphrodite navigating the trecherous social landscape of junior high school, will be available for download via Tribeca's Virtual Film Festival program (http://www.tribecafilm.com/virtual/).  Fans of underdog stories everywhere should definitely push the button on this one. From the moment one lays eyes on the frizzy-haired Spork in her trailer park home -- complete with 3D sunglasses, stuffed dog on wheels and fe...

Tribeca Round Table: Brilliante Mendoza of LOLA

user
"I was really into mainstream," says Brilliante Mendoza, the director of LOLA, of his career start as an advertising art director and production designer to mainstream Asian directors, "more the glamorous, glossy type of world (as) compared to what I am doing (now)." But Mendoza's attention has turned to what he calls "real-time" storytelling, films based on real life stories. LOLA ("grandmother" in Tagalog) was inspired by a news item he saw on television...

HEARTBREAKER: Chemistry In The House

user
"It took much longer to get him (Romain Duris) than any woman I've ever known," says HeartBreaker director Pascal Chaumeil, only half-conscious of his double entendre in English, as he speaks of his lead actor's initial reluctance to attempt this romantic comedy with Vanessa Paradis in a post-screening Q & A session. "It was essential to find the right couple. Chemistry is everything."Lucky for Chaumeil, the magic potion is there between Juliette, a former wild child n...

World Premieres At Tribeca Film Festival

user
  SONS OF PERDITION It can be argued that what separates A list film festivals from their colleagues are the number of World Premieres that grace their theaters. No matter what the ultimate reception is for these films, the wanna-see anticipation of films in their first public and industry showings provide a sizzle. At the Tribeca Film Festival, which is entering its first weekend, there are an impressive number of World Premieres that are grabbing attention from the public and in...

Genie In a Bottle - METROPIA and ROAD, MOVIE

user
Atma Hair Oil or D'Angst Shampoo, M'am?The keys to the last two Tribeca films I've seen, Tarik Saleh's innovative new Metropia and the enjoyable Indian coming of-age tale, Road, Movie, both sound like they might be sold at your local pharmacy.For young Vishnu, Atma Hair Oil (the family business) represents the cultural roots he would rather ditch like a parent on the first day of school, as he sets out for the coast in a dilapidated old truck. The truck, to be sold to a coastal museum, contain...

MICMACS: La Jolie Bande de La Récup - Stylized Salvage

user
Director Jean-Pierre Jeunet, of Amélie fame, brings back his franco-francais blend of winsome and satire in this highly stylized film about two arms dealers, a man with a bullet lodged in his brain named Basel, and a team of quirky outcasts from the junkyard.   Almost comic book in it's attention to visual detail (think "Tin-Tin"), MICMACS original French title, translates as "non-stop madness." The madness being the greed and insensitivity of the war merchants, of course...

A Film Festival For The 21st Century

user
  The Tribeca Film Festival, which opens tomorrow evening, is just in its 9th year (a baby by the standards of such veterans as Cannes, Venice, San Francisco and other 50 plus film events). In under a decade, the Festival has made a strong impression, being one of the few that is looking to create a brand name that is instantly recognizable and represents a particular kind of film culture (think Cannes, think Sundance). The Sundance connection is especially relevant, with this year...

Tribeca FF 2010: The Circus Comes To Town

user
  Do you remember when you were a little kid and you heard that the circus was coming to town? For me, it is a warm and still excitable feeling. Well, as a jaded adult, such simple pleasures are not supposed to create a sense of excitement (been there, done that) but the arrival (sound the trumpets!!!) of the Tribeca Film Festival this week is a cause for circus-like jubilation. OK, let's get the jaded criticism out of the way.....the Tribeca Film Festival, formed 9 years ago as a ...

Tribeca Travelogue: Postcards from Manila and Cairo

user
I can't wait until April 20th to tell you about LOLA and CAIRO TIME, the two visually stunning films (non-embargoed this time!) I saw back-to-back on this lazy pre-festival screening Saturday. I feel like somebody just gave me frequent flier miles.    Quite a juxtaposition between the two trips. LOLA, Brilliante Mendoza‘s new film,is brilliant and yet depressing ("life with the sad parts left in for two elderly women some place around the globe where it rains a lot"...

Getting Warmed Up For Tribeca!

user
Hello All! ....I won't be officially starting my Tribeca blog until the opening press conference on April 20th. But, so far, the good folks at Rubenstein have given me a chance to see press screenings of SPORK and AMERICAN MYSTIC. And while I can't write about either until I am no longer under embargo, be forewarned that there is one lighthearted romp you definitely won't want to miss at this year's film festival!  Most of all, I am looking forward to seeing an incredible Franco-American lin...

Indelible Images: 2008 Tribeca Film Festival Wrap

 Sunday, May 4--------Although it is tempting, it is actually quite difficult to take a diverse event as the Tribeca Film Festival and tie its themes or influences into one neat bow. Film festivals are, after all, about diversity and multiplicity of voices. While the programmers of the event certainly have an overall picture of how the films interact with one another, oftentimes the influences are not that clearly on the surface, and only become revealed days after their initial, sometimes acci...

The Film Annex Networking Events At Tribeca FF

Saturday, May 3------One of the more intriguing new players in the digital download field is Film Annex. Through its website, Filmannex.com, the company's mission is to provide a new channel for promoting filmmakers and their works as well as distributing their films — to anyone with an Internet connection and selective corporate clients. Since art and independent films (particularly non-English language films) are often hugely popular at film festivals, but suffer at the distribution level t...
