user
The landmark 30th edition of the Durban International Film Festival announced that the winner of the Best Feature Film award is No Puedo Vivir Sin Ti (Taiwan).

Who's expected at Berlinale Panorama 2009

user
Catherine Breillat, Michael Winterbottom, Michael Glawogger, Lucía Puenzo, and Philippe LioretShortly before completing our selection for this year’s programme, it has become evident that genuinely independent cinema – in contrast to the independents of the major studios in the early 2000s – is at an advantage due to the economic crisis. In other words: cinema now promises to become more radical and audacious again, and hence more inspiring. This development can be seen not only in a new ...

Film In Focus: La Moustache

Wednesday, September 13----The French can be credited for many things....romantic love, opulent architecture, delicious (and fattening) foods, and most of the "isms" of the last few centuries. In the middle of the 20th century, the "ism de jour" was existentialism, a world view that was both personal and communal in describing the human condition and man's place in the universe. With the help of such seminal figures as Jean Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, existentialism became a major liter...

Sydney Fest, deeper into an ocean of film

user
The vibrancy of a film festival can be measured by a willingness to juxtapose films that confound thematic linkage, offering surprises and revelations in an ocean of film from around the world: this year’s program, Lynden Barber’s second as Artistic Director, suggests he is more interested in challenging us than placating us. He wants us to ‘go deeper’. Andrew L. Urban previews the 53rd Sydney Film Festival (June 9 – 25, 2006).With over 120 feature length films and more than 60 shorts ...
