IPod vs Radio and Television an article from New SIGNIS Media (4/2006):

user
The development of ‘new media’ on the Internet is a challenge for Catholic producers, says the new issue of our magazine SIGNIS Media. The audiovisual world has changed radically over the past five years. From a culture of distinct media, in which TV had little to do with radio, and radio had only faint connections with cinema, while the Internet continued on its own trajectory, we have plunged into an era of products, which are integrating the various media: it’s impossible today to thin...

Explosion of Documentary-Only Film Festivals

Thursday, November 30----While it is true that most major international film festivals do showcase important documentary films, the explosion of documentary-only film festivals, as evidenced here at the International Documentary Film Festival (IDFA) in Amsterdam, is nothing less than an explosion. With brochures littering the industry areas, it is amazing and heartening to see such a massive public interest in the documentary form. So, instead of writing a long article, I am simply going to l...

Matt Dillon Gets Conched in Donostia

user
Here on the next to the next-to-last day of the festival, American actor Matt Dillon, is to be awarded a lifetime career CONCHA award (at the relatively tender age of 42) -- in this writer's opinion a very good choice. The other performer award this week went to Swede Max Von Sydow, so Matt can be said to be stepping in the best of company, and no questions about that. Over the years I have watched Dillon's career develop from early "young punk" roles in films like "Rumble Fish" (Coppola,1983) ...

Rome Film Fest: Starting At The Top

Logo of CINEMA: Rome Film Fest Most festivals, in their debut year, have a modest agenda and try to keep expectations at a low pitch. Not so CINEMA: Rome Film Fest, which is approaching its inaugural session with the velocity of an unstoppable train. It has always seemed curious to Americans why some of Europe’s largest cities have not had a major film festival attached to them. Why, we wonder, did it take decades for Paris, the most cinephile of cities, to launch its own film event? Why are...
