Berlin Film In Focus: THE FUTURE

user
It is rare that a rather low budget American indie title ever is included in the main Competition section here at the Berlinale (American indies are more represented in the Panorama and Forum sidebar sections).

Such is the case with July's sophomore effort following her celebrated debut ME AND YOU AND EVERYONE WE KNOW in 2004. It has taken almost seven years for her follow...

Artistic Film Clapperboards On View

user
  So, you may be saying.....what exactly is a film clapperboard? Well, since the beginning of films, the clapperboard has  been used to visually introduce scenes so that a director and editor can organize their shots. While some prefer the new digital clapperboards, many filmmakers prefer the traditional wooden ones. Not only are a kind of nostalgia for the classic period of cinema but the loud "thwack" they make when they are closed is a sound that technicians, actors and di...

World Cinema Treats At FLIFF

user
  In an earlier article on this Dailies site, I wrote about the European films that make up the core of the World Cinema section at the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival, which is entering its final weekend. However, choice non-European films from around the globe are among this year's highlights. ADELA, by Filipino director Adolfo Borinaga Alix, won a Best Actress prie at the Cinemanila Film Festival for its lead actress, the octogenarian Anita Linda. She stars as Ade...

The film begins on the last day of Naomi Holbroke's marriage to a high-ranking British government official. Seeming to be a failure as a housewife, Naomi sets off to reclaim the acting career she gave up “for him” twenty-five years ago.In France at a film festival, she meets film director Billy Rust and falls in love with…his script, particularly with ...

The Summer Is Definitely Over: Toronto FF In 2 Weeks

 Friday, August 25---------In a sure sign that summer is definitely in its last throws, the Toronto International Film Festival held its major press conference earlier this week, announcing the full roster of films and special events that will be presented from September 6 to 15. In less than two weeks, the titans of the film industry, and a smattering of first-timers and more humble folk like this journalist, will venture to the "New York of the North" to be part of an extravaganza t...

SUBURBAN GIRL To Screen Tonight

 Saturday, May 5-----One thing Festival organizers are always keen on saying is the following: "Due to popular demand and sold-out screenings, one last screening of FILM X has been added". While that could certainly apply to several Festival titles, one of the most sought-after has been SUBURBAN GIRL, the witty adaptation of Melissa Bank's best selling book, The Girls' Guide To Hunting and Fishing.Alec Baldwin (he of the telephone message rant) joins with Sarah Michelle Gellar...
