  A NEW FILM FESTIVAL EXPERIENCE   The Fourth Annual International Love Unlimited Film Festival & Art Exhibition Offers An Alternative To The Usual Film Festival Fare Many of today’s film festivals have become crowded, impersonal events that follow the same formulaic routines.

Poles Apart Again

user
Probably the most successful of the still-sustained 'national' film festivals that flourish, with greater and lesser degrees of success in London and around the British Isles (dare I still call them that without fear of political uncorrectness?) is Kinoteka, which celebrated its 9th edition from 24th March to 13th April, 2011.(Since the German Film Weeks are now but a fond memory, this Polish filmic-extravaganza now surely takes the crown, in the face of all kinds of film 'festivals' that vie...

Amanar Tamasheq

Director: Lluis Escartín.
A man walks into the desert. A man lives with the Tuareg. A man listens to another man, and this one asks the other to film everything he finds. To film it and spread the word beyond the dunes. Film everything, even if he does not understand. Film it, even if what’s most important remains invisible.

Snobs

My goodness its cold here - I feel like I'm in the North Pole. I personally hate this weather, in fact mid-Wales was the coldest place in the UK at the weekend; -17 on Saturday night... Anyway, what this means though is that those old cinemas with no air con are nice and warm and whilst I was in Glasgow on business at the weekend I had some free time to chill and watch a film in one of these types of cinemas. I had the choice between Unstoppable and Machete. You'd probably think that...

Mariam's Amazing Race to Cannes and back to Cambodia: Day 15

user
This morning I decided to look out the drapes and check my watch when I woke up. It was 5:30am and already getting light. Any further north and I suspect it would be the gloaming, when the darkest part of night remains twilight. Breakfast was again superb, this time with an added sausage. Chris need to run an errand, so he dropped me off at Sorbie Tower to wander around. It was quiet except for the birds; it smelled of fresh rain and wild garlic (or onions - they both look the same to me)...

Interview with Maestro director Josell Ramos

user
MAESTRO is a historical documentary film based on the underground dance music scene in New York City during the late 1960's through the 1980's. It was a precursor to the disco phenomenon which resulted into movie blockbusters such as "Saturday Night Fever" in 1977, and "54" in 1998. The documentary begins with the history of same sex dancing after the Stonewall riots in 1969. Same sex dancing gave a whole new meaning to freedom of expression through the art of dancing. A freedom that was unaffec...
