ECU Film Festival - Day Three

user
  It's about a quarter past four on the third day of the film festival and, due to a slight delay in scheduling, director Alan Arrivée is fielding questions about his film, The Man at the Door, from the audience members assembled outside the Action Christine cinema.  Ostensibly about the intrusion of an apparently threatening Mexican immigrant into the tightly locked home of a recently separated American woman, for Arrivée the film is a metaphor for relations between Mexico and ...

ECU Film Festival Day Two - Part Two

user
    It's nearly one am on the night of the second day of the ECU Film Festival, and while Belgian musician, Karim Baqqili, spins out some wild gypsy jazz on an oud, Patrick Chadwick is talking to me about Icelandic weather patterns.   We're milling around at the after-party at Les Voutes Saint Paul after a long day of screenings. The wine is flowing, in another room somewhere in this strangely cavernous place people are dancing to MGMT with champagne flutes in...

ECU Film Festival - Day Two

user
It's about a quarter to one on the second day of the festival and Pablo Tourrenc has just revealed to a room full of school children that Kid Cudi is habitually four or five hours late to turn up on the set of his video shoots. This is a fact that they will keep with them and treasure, spreading it around the playground like a bad case of measles. Pablo's been taking us through the basics of budgeting, scheduling and on-set parking - with a helpful reminder to always be prepared fo...

user
ÉCU 2012 FILM FESTIVAL DAY ONE It’s nearly half past six on the evening of the first day of the seventh European Independent Film Festival. Strains of smoky jazz, a snaking baritone sax line, filters through from the trio set up in the festival foyer, making its way to the little marquee where, even now,  film-makers are assembling for the welcome glass of wine or vitamin water. Amongst the group festival president, Scott Hillier, will later refer to as a “crazed bunch ...

Journalist, Hermann Djoumessi, gives his impression about the festival:

user
HERMANN DJOUMESSI, a journalist for Vingt Paris and The Guardian, swung by the social media counter to give us his thoughts about the festival.    "I really enjoyed how filmmaker friendly the festival is. You can actually touch them," Djoumessi cheerily comments. This is Djoumessi's second festival. He loves the feeling that surrounds the event. The ability to watch films and then immediately after talk to the director is phenomenal and is a pleasurable experience to ...
