2016 good year for Sony Pictures Networks India

2016 good year for Sony Pictures Networks India As 2016 fades out, Sony Pictures Networks (SPN) reveals that it has been a good year for the company. In 2007, the company had changed its name from Sony Entertainment Television (SET) to Multi Screen Media (MSM). Many viewers in India still remember the old name, which was the identity when the Sony group entered India, in 1995, not too long after the Indian skies had opened up to non-state, satellite television broadcasters. According to N ...

Inherent Vice: Review

Child of indie American cinema, Anderson keeps a sweet tone of bewilderment in his new hors d’oeuvre, which although took time to prepare, is served cold, raw - pleasing, but leaving a mouthwatering effect for a no-show main.      Remembering Anderson’s previous moments with The Master or Magnolia, where a constant flow and amusing disconnection from reality progress with every scene, Inherent Vice is more of a sharp staccato-like nostalgic manifesto for an era of...

Bille August: Masterclass at Marrakech IFF 14

  How would you teach filmmaking? Which films would you show?    Some of my favourites, starting with The Godfather. Practicing is where you learn from, though. Only by doing mistakes you learn how to do better.      How has your life impacted your filmmaking?    I had a very bad childhood and my father was not a very nice man. (laughing) I lived in my fantasies, creating stories and creating theatre plays for my friends. At school I used to go a...

Festival diary, MAMI’s Mumbai Film Festival (MFF), Part I

Back in the mid 90s, a group of Mumbai-based film-enthusiasts felt that it was time the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) stopped alternating every year between New Delhi and other metro cities like Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Thiruvananthapuram and Mumbai, and settled down in Mumbai for good. Some of the strong factors in favour were: 1. Mumbai is the birth place of Indian cinema and the film capital of India, although films are made aplenty in other cities as well. 2....

WILD: London FF Review

Wild, dir. Jean-Marc Vallée, 2014, US      It is rather a common thing to push ourselves beyond the borderline in an attempt to see what it takes to confront our fears. This challenge now has potentially evolved into the journey of encountering our dreams and testing our capability to either pursue or quit them; but is it easy to define a dream as a ‘to quit’ or ‘to live’, before knowing the cost?    Wild is about dreams. Or, to be m...

Jo Coates: Director of Hide and Seek - interview

How did you come up with idea of doing something so different as the experiment in the film, where you take four people and isolate them from the society?    The idea came from a music video that I made with my writing partner and husband. We did this music video with characters that were living isolated and it was a bit more abstract, so we decided to explore it a bit more, play more with people. We were thinking quite a lot of Bergman as well, and we included many personal ideas a...

Toronto Serves Up a Kubrick Cornucopia

  In the 15 years since his passing, Stanley Kubrick's reputation has continued to grow as one of the finest directors in the history of cinema, while new generations of film fans discover the rich body of work he left behind, which continues to provoke passionate debate regarding his films' meaning, whether philosophical, moral or metaphysical. Whatever one's own position on a given film, there's no denying that for many viewers, Kubrick's work inspires a fervor whi...

New York: The Americas Film Festival of New York

      As noted in earlier reviews most new film festivals do not survive in the competitive New York market unless they have institutional support, access to productions, a clear profile and an audience. Even established festivals such as the German KINO!  which has had a successful 35 year run at the Museum of Modern Art faces an uncertain future. Kino! had to relocate this year to the small downtown Quad Cinema venue since MOMA no longer carries country specific film pro...
