If You're Going to San Francisco ... International Film Festival

user
Four thousand film festivals populate the globe. But more than many, the San Francisco International Film Festival may satisfy a collective hunch of what such a gathering should be. Perhaps age has something to do with it; at 53 years old, SFIFF, held this year from April 22 to May 6, 2010, is the oldest film festival in the Americas. Then there's the topography of San Francisco, which rises, falls and yields vistas that themselves cop filmic metaphors. Or maybe it's because San Francisc...

Teddy Awards Celebrate Queer Cinema

  Although there is a clearly defined international circuit of gay and lesbian film festivals around the world (totalling more than 70 different events), the “queen of the crop” definitely remains the Teddy Award, which is given to LGBT films premiering at the Berlinale. The gay Oscar is not only a prize to be coveted but also is accompanied with one of Berlin’s hottest ticket parties, held last evening. Tihe eight members of the international jury are all organizers of gay fi...

The Martha Vineyard African- American Festival wrap-up

The 5th annual film festival was huge success and a celebration of independent African-American cinema. The festival screened 55 amazing films from around the globe. .The "N" word panel moderated by Harvard Law Professor Charles Ogletree was extremely informative and well received. The receptions and parties sponsored by Bombay Sapphire were a huge success! Don Cheadle's film "Talk To Me" was screened to a sold out audience. If you have not had the opportunity to see it, we urge you to go and su...

The Golden Age of Documentaries

user
Friday, February 16----Much has been written about the "golden age of documentaries" that we suddenly and fortunately are currently immersed in. Perhaps it is a response to a violent and confusing world to which we are looking to bring knowledge, healing and understanding. Aside from aesthetic considerations, the documentary has also proven to be a highly profitable item for distributors, with such films as FAHRENHEIT 911, MARCH OF THE PENGUINS and this year's AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH...
