London Latin America 3rd Film Festival

Discovering Latin America Film FestivalLondon November 25 - December 5London may seem an unlikely place for a Latin American film festival. Most of the Argentinean, Cuban and Uruguayan films that have won festival prizes in the last couple of years have never been distributed in London (as a matter of fact, outside of Latin America, most of these films have only been distributed in Paris). Also, the English are not known for their unequivocal enthusiasm for anything Argentinean. Nevertheless, on...

The Latest New Wave: Argentinean Films at the London Film FestivalThe notion of 'new wave' is probably one of the most meaningless concepts used in film criticism. Since the French nouvelle vague of the sixties, each time a nation produces two or three talented directors, the critics start to talk about a new wave. If this term had existed in the twenties, German expressionism and French impressionism would surely have been described as such. In the last four decades, however, there are few new ...

On the Road to the Palmarès

user
With two days away to the Palmarès, and two films left to screen, here is the official selection which has commanded the press attention for over a week - with comments by the directors. No one can ever predict what a jury with a chemistry of its own will decide. We have some ideas though from the day one press conference: Benoît Poelvoorde is going to take revenge on the films because he's never won an award (prompted by Bob Hope and Billy Crystal). Tilda Swinton and Quentin Tarantino will po...

Quentin Tarantino took a break from jury duty to present Kill Bill: Volume 2 out of competition, accompanied by Uma Thurman and David Carradine. Three other events punctu...
