Sundance Diary: Spring Film Festival Highlights

Friday, January 26----The Sundance Film Festival is a busy event for the hundreds of US and international film festival programmers, promoters and administrators who must spend many hours in the dark sampling films in all the different Sundance categories. Not only is there pressure to view as many films as possible over the course of a hectic 10-day period, but the Festival is a golden opportunity to promote their event, network with distributors and filmmakers, and create a footprint of visi...

Jeanne Moreau Presides over San Sebastian Jury

user

Chaos, sex addiction and Ned Beatty in person at Minneapolis

user
CHAOS is just a theory in physics, but it's a full blown practice at the Minneapolis film festival. Whether or not a can of film will arrive at its designated venue at all, or, if it does arrive, whether it will be wound on backward or inside out -- therefore unshowable -- is often a toss-up. One such instance, Werner Herzog's latest, "The Wild Blue Yonder" -- an astronaut fantasy in a post-Armageddon world -- arrived at the Oak Street theater projection booth cut into unmarked segments, so th...

Cronenberg Opens Stockholm Film Festival

user
"Lifetime Achievement Award" recipient David Cronenberg cut the 'ribbon' - a strip of celluloid - at the Stockholm Film Festival kick off November 17. "Are you sure you want to give me those scissors--that's kind of dangerous", he quipped to fest director Git Scheynius, and introduced the opening film: A History of Violence. He joked as he cut that he was going to do some fast editing of his latest feature, the one he is most proud of, the one he admits to "selling out" on because of its huge bu...

15th Stockholm International Film Festival Kicks Off

user
It is hard to believe that the Stockholm International Film Festival, November 18-28, is already at year 15, and to celebrate, the festival will be showing some of the favorite films from past years and former recipients of the "Stockholm Bronze Horse" award. The horse evolved from the handpainted replicas from Dalecarlia in the heart of Sweden, a suitable icon given a somber spin by the festival. Past Bronze Horse winners include Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction by Quentin Tarantino (parts of ...
