Meet Alfred Holighaus, section director of Perspektive Deutsches Kino

The screening of the documentary Reverse Angle: Rebellion of the Filmmakers is a great occasion to show a series of films originating from the Filmverlag der Autoren at this year’s Berlinale. Alfred Holighaus, section director of Perspektive Deutsches Kino, curated the series. How does the documentary Reverse Angle: Rebellion of the Filmmakers manage to arouse interest in a not-so-old chapter of German film history? It’s just like with the Rolling Stones. There’s a generation of arti...

Pioneers Of The Digital Revolution

 Tuesday, October 30----“We realized pretty quickly that the existing system was not going to work in our benefit… we decided it was easier to create a new alternative rather than battle the system that was in place”, filmmaker Lance Weiler declared at the Power To The Pixel Conference last Friday at the London Film Festival. And thus, the gauntlet was launched, as a new generation of filmmakers, distributors and marketers discussed the myriad ways that the digital revolution is upend...

MIDNIGHT SLAM! Guarantees A Fright

 Saturday/Sunday, August 25 and 26---------The Montreal World Film Festival is an eclectic mix. It is a showcase for the most auteur of auteur films, and yet has a hankering to involve "tout le public" also. On the same evening, a film from a film master will screen at the same time as an upstart indie project from a director rookie to a pulpish genre film. In that sense, the Festival is an accurate reflection of the city where it takes uneasy mixture of genteel French-i...

Uneasy Riders: Films of the 1970s

 Friday, July 27-------It did not seem like it at the time, but the films of a new generation of filmmakers in the 1970s truly did revolutionize the industry and save the studios from financial disaster. By the following decade, Hollywood was back to its old tricks of mounting blockbusters and lowest-common-denominator genre films. But for a period of about ten years (from 1967 to 1977, roughly defined by the release of Mike Nichol's THE GRADUATE and the unprecedented boxoffice extravaganza...

Noir City Seattle closes with wicked women

To start at the end, the final film of the now fabulous "Noir City" festival in Seattle, closing out a solid week of non-stop black-hearted delight, was "Wicked Woman" (1953) -- arguably, the purest 'noir' ever made. This was billed along with Fritz Lang's far more famous and far more arty "Scarlet Street" (1945), and the contrast between these two striking studies in wickedness is almost as striking as the films themselves. To start with, Lang was a very European "art director" and "Scarlet S...

A day in Cinequest blog report

My day began with the Day of Sight and Sound and Panasonic's P2 presentation, followed by a quick press conference, and then Carl Miller's presentation of his film, Retribution. I always feel that this day has the potential to be a powerful learning tool for local and visiting filmmakers, and for future sessions I would love to see cinematographers and sound designers invited in to share their knowledge with us. A guy can dream...I rounded off the day with two excellent films from opposite ends ...

What will happen to movie going experience?

Movie theater audiences have steadily shrunk over the past 50 years. This brings a very important concern to the forefront: will movie theaters continue to exist among all the new media and technology? With so many different ways to distribute a film, it is a matter of sociology as to why one would want to go into a dark movie theater and experience a film with a group of strangers or even alone in the dark.Several of these topics were addressed at a recent Sundance Film Festival panel I attende...
