Make Mine Mannheim

Arriving at any festival on the 13th of the month does not augur well, though my journey from home to Heathrow Terminal 4 had been surprisingly smooth, if long before Dawn's dusky fingers had opened the strike-free ticket offices of any of the Underground stations circling London's Regent Park. Both my Air France flights, via Paris to Frankfurt, had departed and landed on time (though we should draw a veil over the Economy Class croissants of uncertain age and provenance on the earlier flight)an...

The part for the whole. The Seville European Film Festival 2009 commits to multiculturality and respect

user
      A red carpet of contrasts. Colin Farrell, hidden under his Hollywood hat. Carlos Saura more flamenco than ever. And the stunning words of the honoree Vittorio Storaro. Seville aspires to live the European cinema as passionately as its Andalusian streets are lived. The part for the whole. The small helping to understand the big. Apart of some problems with the video screenings, the gala presentation highlighted the very best of every section: the Of...

Encounters With British Cinema At Tribeca FF

 Monday, April 28---------One of the great pleasures of attending a film festival is the serendipity that often occurs when one sees one film after another, finding thematic connections or differences between them that delight the soul and stimulate the mind. I had just such an occurrence the other day, seeing two British films back to back. It just happened that the films were screening after one another, but it made me realize how much I love and appreciate both the high and the low in Britis...

From the Sublime to the Ridiculous - Saturday, March 3

My day began with the Day of Sight and Sound and Panasonic's P2 presentation, followed by a quick press conference, and then Carl Miller's presentation of his film, Retribution. I always feel that this day has the potential to be a powerful learning tool for local and visiting filmmakers, and for future sessions I would love to see cinematographers and sound designers invited in to share their knowledge with us.

Other Brits who shined include Best...
