Get your thinking caps on - the Big Pitcher 2010 is here!

user
Now in its fifth year, and still not banned, this wild and chaotic festival favourite returns to give desperate filmmakers the opportunity to pitch for a cash award to make their next great three-minute epic. The catch: they have to do it in a maximum of two minutes in front of a live audience – who are both judge and jury. Hosted once again by trail-blazing production company o-region, the event will also feature the world premieres of last year’s survivors (‘winners,’ we mean ‘winner...

EROS Film Fest sends a message: It Gets Better

12th Annual EROS Film Festival Sends a Message: It Gets BetterAs our nation cries out in grief and disbelief at the recent tragedies surrounding gay youth in America, the question that begs an urgent answer is: how do we prevent this from happening again and again? The answer is simple: support, support, support. Support takes many forms – from reaching out on a personal level to gay and lesbian youth in our lives to mentoring an at risk youth we’ve never met to linking ourselves and othe...

THE SOCIAL NETWORK Kicks Off 2010 NYFF

  Future generations will be in a better position to determine whether the introduction of social networking technology in the first decade of the 20th century was a blessing or a curse. Certainly for the entrepreneurs who created new ways for us to communicate with one another, it has been both. Such is the case for the multi-billionaire Mark Zuckerberg, who founded the internet phenomenon Facebook, but who has lost as much as he has gained in terms of the trust and love of his friends...

Joaquin Phoenix Doc: Is It A Hoax?

Is the film, which had its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this week, a true portrait of the actor's rejection of movie stardom or is it a cleverly planned hoax?

Confronting The Shadows Of History

user
  HENRY OF NAVARRE (Jo Baier, Germany/France/Spain)  It is always tempting to ascertain a link or a thematic accent in the programming of a film festival. Threads are there but creating a strong argument in that direction is always a bit of a false road. In truth, film festivals come together based on the films that are made available to them. However, as with an individual, each Festival has its own distinct personality and interests.  At the Montreal World Film Festival, ...

Origjanski Zlatko, Anastasia and 'Before the Rain'

Today, September 1, 2010, marks the opening of the Venice Film Festival 2010. Let me take you back to a film that won the Golden Lion sixteen years ago. I'll never forget the first time I saw the Macedonian film Before the Rain (1994), which was winner of the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival in 1994. Well, I have always believed that the soundtrack makes the film, like frosting makes the cake. One just cannot go without the other. And the melodious music from Before the Rain, that alway...
