Going to make a film with a heart in the middle   By Anna Pook   With the European Independent Film Festival on the horizon, my thoughts turn to 2008’s indie big-hitters and what it takes to win those coveted festival prizes. What connects this year’s winners such as James Marsh’s documentary Man on Wire, which charts Philippe Petit’s death-defying tightrope walk between the twin towers in 1974 (Grand Jury Prize for World Cinema Documentary at...

By Rhinnon Hobbins For decades the film industry has suffered from a lack of female directors. But the tide looks to be finally turning with more and more chicks sitting in the director’s chair making some exceptional flicks. These filmmakers are determined not to let anything stand in their way of telling a story - even if that means working on storyboards whilst giving birth.ÉCU 2007 debut director Nicola Morris “I actually took my storyboard into the delivery room and worked on it as I w...

Of course, whether these were wise decisions that will pay off hands...

A Bittersweet Homage To An Indie Icon

Saturday, January 20----It is pretty much di rigeur that if one has one's film at the Sundance Film Festival, one moves hell and high water to make it here for the premiere. A rare exception to this rule is the case of the film WAITRESS, written, directed and co-starring Adrienne Shelly, a beloved indie actress who made her first impressions in the early films of auteur Hal Hartley (whose FAY GRIM is premiering here as well).
