How do you deal with the fact there was no Tarr movie at the 39th Budapest Film Week competition and even the opening film - which supposed to be your "The Man from London" -- was cancelled?

Golden Reel is Spinning Fast in Hungarian Capital

user
In the final countdown of the Budapest Film Week, both the ordinary audience and professional film people are getting a clearer and clearer picture in their heads concerning the films of the event. So far, so good we might as well say; with an estimated number of nearly 30,000 viewers until now the overall feedback is very positive due to the good organization presented. Professionals say that this year’s documentary line-up is very strong, although the quality of feature films is not somethin...

He has worked professionally in positions as diverse as producer, gaffer, cinematographer, and narrative projects and survived more low-budget shoots than he cares to admit.

Andy Garcia Special Guest of Karlovy Vary Fest

user
Andy Garcia Special Guest of Karlovy Vary Fest and a Touch of Class with Jacqueline Bisset Andy Garcia, Cuban born actor (Havana, 1956) will be honored with a career award and will also present his hotly awaited new film "Lost City" this week in Karlovy Vary. The film, which deals with the rise of Fidel Castro, has raised hackles in certain circles because of the less than sympathetic light in which Counter-Culture and perennial youth hero, Che Guevara, is shown among other things. However, And...

Durban cannes do

user
Film is my life... That sums up how I feel about the movies.I don't care much for the big budget blockbuster American films and don't see many of them. I live for the small films with small budgets where you still see people and hear stories about people. They also have no car chases and big explosions which I don't see as art.I discovered the Durban International Film Festival in 2005 by accident when I read on the Internet that they will be premiering Paradise Now and the two main actors and d...

Cannes Classics on the Beach is a classic experience

Throughout the festival people have the opportunity to attend screening of old school, aka "former", Cannes film festival winners while enjoying the beautiful scenery of the plage at night time. Low-sitting beach chairs provide a casual and comfortable viewing experience, but if you need to read the sub-titles, I recommend getting there early in order to get front row seats, otherwise they are hard to see. Fortunately, even people who do not have any film festival badge can still have a...

The Search For (Some, Any) News on Cannes......

user
During my current experiment of trying to "do" Cannes while not actually being there (in others words, virtually if not physically), it is quite astonishing to me that so little actual coverage is available to the average American consumer. Yes, we did catch a glimpse of Tom Hanks on the red carpet, and read much speculation about the fate of THE DA VINCI CODE, but it seems that anything that is not part of the tyranny of celebrity gossip finds scant space in American newspapers or television s...

Waterfront Film Festival ambiance

user
The streets of Saugatuck, Michigan were deceptively empty during the first couple days of the 2004 Waterfront Film Festival, which began June 10. The steady rain kept the usual stream of weekend tourists away from all the specialty shops and gourmet restaurants in this West Michigan town of just over a thousand permanent residents, but poor weather’s apparently not a major deterrent when films are screened indoors, as the opening night presentation – a restored print of Clara Bow’s celebra...

Cinema and Exile

user
By now it should be clear that the selections in the official selection are carefully chosen for matching themes each day. 'Motorcycle Diaries' and 'Exils' both deal with returning to the past through landscape and cinema, mentalities of the time. For Walter Salles, its a return to 1952 and the diaries of Che Guavara, but also a way of looking at the exploited and underdeveloped Latin America of today. Tony Gatlif returns to present day Algeria as a way of coming to terms with his life in France...
