San Sebastian Festival - Thematic retrospective: Very Funny Things. New American Comedy

user
  VERY FUNNY THINGS. NEW AMERICAN COMEDY is the title of the thematic retrospective to be dedicated by this year's San Sebastian Festival to new trends in American comedy movies.

"Overlooked Suspect-What If OJ SImspson Didn't Do It ? "

Director: David Nerman.
This compelling documentary raises important and critical questions and highlights an incredible search for the truth, by one of America’s leading and acclaimed private investigators, William C. Dear, along with a team of internationally recognized experts in their respective fields. Each of these global experts in their fields has come to the same, independent conclusion. The documentary includes references to high-level communication between the LAPD and agencies responsible for the original trial, among others, and the lead investigator William Dear, which makes the viewer wonder…Why the Overlooked Suspect was not more vigorously pursued? Was there a cover up? The film’s Producers state: “We have distilled over 16 years and 5,000 hours of intense research and investigation into a one-hour, thought-provoking, viewer-friendly documentary that will empower the public to decide what they feel, in conclusion, about the case and whether there was a rush to judgment”. They add: “In the end, you be the Judge”.

Danis Tanovic – the family man who can’t forget the war

user
During the meeting with the audience after the screening of his film Baggage in the Cinema House, Danis Tanovic said that he’s actually quite a joyful person and loves to laugh. But in our conversation he was quite serious and said that certain things make him quite pessimistic. Going back through his films, it is easy to spot the humor in all of them, but it usually serves to lighten up a very dark situation, and to help you through it. Perhaps, the more seriously you look towards...

You will doubtless feel its the best film ever made but only when its been screened in front of a ticket paying audience (who can demand their money back) will you know if your film has a market. I would love to see more sites dedicated to spotting emerging talent, run by people who can judge imp...

ÉCU Alumni: Interview with James McAleer

1. Your film is about insects in a post-apocalyptic world – where does your inspiration come from? My inspiration usually starts from character or history, something visually striking or profound, and I build a story from there, but in the case of ‘Invertebrate’, it was a flash of inspiration under pressure… I was in a pitch meeting with the local branch of the now defunct UK Film council (Northern Film & Media- thankfully NFM are still here) where I had been as...
