Prizes for Berlinale 62 were very democratic

user
Berlin is known above all for its political and social commitment, or what the French Existentialists would call a Festival "Engagé".Esthetic purists sometimes question the Berlin prize decisions on artistic grounds but art is often of secondary importance in this ballparkwhere politics can also have to do with the pecking order in the upper echelons of the international film establishment. Clearly the film with the most obvious socio-political content this year was the Hungarian entry "Csak a ...

Notes from Film Independent Forum

user
Some are here to learn, some are here to share. Everyone is here in the name of film. Each have different experiences, backgrounds, and levels of expertise. As I sat in one panel about film financing Saturday I looked back at the packed auditorium and thought to myself, "Damn. Each of these people are here just because they want to make movies." They don't have money to make it happen, but they are here because they believe in what they want to do enough that they believe they can make...
