Las Vegas Film Festival in 110 Heat, Yes, That Sucks

user
Do we give a sh*t about Vegas and its film festival? If you're Hollywood, you kind of look at it like an artifact on the artifact. A facsimile hatched together for the Sunset Boulevard  devotee/autograph-seeking/souvenir-collecting fan-based crowd.   Which is to say that in 110 F degree heat, stuck in Hooter's with a bunch of paunchy middle aged doofs looking for p-u-s-s-y, there are many other things one of the film persuasion might consider doing... laundry, for exampl...

Int'l Film Festival. To start with, let us say that Roger does not look a day over seventy-four, and was greeted upon arrival on stage by a most respectful whole-room-standing-up ovation which h...

Toby & Hettie make a movie - The making of...(6hrs)

user
The making of/night of the short film L'amour de Montparnasse! (part 1 of 2)Waiting out side the gates the public left and we moved in.  It took an hour of setting up make-up, wardrobe, craft service and the first shot.  Due to the necessity of me having to multi-task I was running around like a headless chicken with no one to help in the behind the scenes as they were all setting up the jib arm and dolly.  Thankfully Chantelle who was the Travel Town representative was great and couldn't hav...

11th LA Polish Fest conects with Hollywood

user
by Alex Deleon The Los Angeles film festival calendar is so crowded that three of them have currently been running in overlapping juxtaposition. The LA Indian film festival and the LA Polish film festival both started on the same day, April 20, but the Indian one only lasted six days leaving another six days to catch up with the second half of the Polish action. There is also an Asian festival going on simultaneously in Koreatown, but since it is physically impossible to be everywhere at once, ...

Meet Indie Filmmaker: PATIENT

Urban Nomad Film Fest

Urban Nomad Film Fest is the oldest and best known underground film festival in Taiwan. It was founded in Taipei in 2002, and the ongoing project is to create a community-oriented film environment and put an end to the impersonal ‘black box’ movie theater environment where hundreds of people can watch films without really interacting with each other. We tend to hold festival screenings and events in warehouses, outdoor spaces and converted spaces, rather than traditional film theaters. Peripheral events include concerts, parties, discussion seminars and directors talks.

Urban Nomad's festival content is socially motivated, growing with and out of digital and grassroots film movements: underground, alternative, digital, arthouse, DVcam, Flash, and web-based films. Our program is evenly split between Taiwanese indie shorts (open submission) and international, independent documentaries and features (feel free to contact us).
