Spike Lee Honored At SILVERDOCS

 Friday, June 20--------SILVERDOCS is, by and large, a non-glam event, with most attendees simply hard-working documentarians, most working without massive media spotlight. However, each year, the event brings some Hollywood-style stardust to the proceedings. In the past two years, the Festival has honored Jonathan Demme and Martin Scorsese, specifically for their documentary work. Last night, it was Spike Lee's turn, as the iconoclastic director was honored with the Guggenheim Symposium for h...

New Year - New Blog

user
Ok - this is a new year and a chance to start a fresh right? Well 2007 saw the launch of my website - www.jennifer-warren.com and it seemed my genius web guru decided to opt me in for a mandatory blog. Great idea - everybody knows that a blog is the best way to self-market and to get your opinion out there. However it soon became to me like that empty journal you feel guilty about not writing in. Sure I made a point of posting while on the circuit at Tribeca Film Festival and then nearly 6 mont...

Films Not Playing At Your Local Theater (Yet)

 Friday, November 16-------Although every Friday sees a glut of film openings making their way to film theaters, the truth is that a large number of worthy films never find traditional theatrical distribution. That is one of the reasons that the brave new worlds of internet downloads and other non-traditional distribution methods hold such promise. However, until these new methodologies take hold in such a way that they can generate the same or similar revenue, theatrical distribution remains t...

Two Must-See Issue Documentaries Open This Week

 Monday, July 23-------Two must-see documentaries that document political and social "hot button" regions are making their theatrical debuts this week.

The film, directed by Annie Sundberg and Ricki Stern, opens on Wednesday, July 25th at New York's IFC Center, followed by a national release by Inte...

SILVERDOCS Ends On Environmental Note

Sunday, June 17----------After five days of what was admittedly some very difficult subject matter explored on screen (torture, imprisonment, war, racism, genocide and all forms of denial of freedom and equality), SILVERDOCS ended on a lighter note, while still staying committed to the issue-oriented nature of the event. The Closing Night Film, making its East Coast Premiere (while screening simultaneously in Seattle, Washington) is this year's nature sensation ARTIC TALE. Directed by Sarah ...

The Fog Of War In The Middle East

 Sunday, June 17-------At the risk of being a moth-eaten cliche, the term "fog of war" is now routinely used to describe a state where political, strategic and moral choices in areas of conflict become shaded by the exigencies of human response to violence and an abandonment of an ethical compass that determines policy and behavior. This "fog of war" has certainly descended on the chaos that is now unfolding in the Middle East, both in the five-year conflicts in Afghanistan...

Religion, Politics And Film: An Explosive Combination

 Saturday, June 16----------With religion and core beliefs the source of both comfort and conflict in the modern world, SILVERDOCS wisely decided to dedicate a special section of the Festival to an exploration of the unique role of religion in social and political discourse. Dubbed BEYOND BELIEF: RELIGION, POLITICS AND FILM, the program has presented a provocative series of films and panel discussions. “The documentary form, which takes personal stories and launches them into the public are...
