    Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival
    Border Crossing
    17th – 21st September 2014


    Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival today announces its most ambitious programme to date in celebration of its 10th anniversary.
     
    Coinciding with the referendum for an independent Scotland (18th September) and with Berwick-upon-Tweed occupying a unique position as the border town between England and Scotland, the Festival has chosen “Border Crossing” as its theme, with its programme exploring border identities and the crossing of boundaries all over the world.
     
    On announcing the programme Festival Director Melanie Iredale said “With over 75 features, short films and artists’ video representing the work of filmmakers and artists from over 35 countries, the Festival will screen across thirteen unique locations around and within the town’s Elizabethan town walls, transforming everything from the ice houses to prison cells into pop-up screening venues.”
     
    She continues: “ With this line-up and topical theme the Festival extends beyond Berwick, beyond the Scottish independence referendum, encapsulating global perspectives – bringing an international flavour to the heart of Berwick-upon-Tweed “.

    Opening this celebration of celluloid on Wednesday 17th September is Mamarosh (dir. Momcilo Mrdakovic, 2013, sponsored by Mitie) – one of 18 UK Premieres - the tale of a film projectionist from Serbia who flees to New York only to find that 35mm is dead and resolves to revive it. Following this is a preview of a new installation by 16mm US artist Ben Russell, The Twilight State(2014, produced in partnership with Northern Film & Media), one of four new commissions, and six world premieres for the award-winning Festival.
     
    Another of the new commissions by Berwick Visual Arts’ artist in residence Katie Davies is previewed on 18th September.The Lawes of the Marches (2014), is an exploration of ancient traditions designed to preserve boundaries. The same day the UK Premiere of Inbetween Worlds (dir. Feo Aladag, 2014) – about a friendship between a German soldier and his Afghan interpreter – takes place in The Maltings, while a shorts programme themed around borders is screened in The Barrels Ale House – where the idea for the first Festival originated 10 years ago!
     
    The programme features a number of German works. From drama,West (dir. Christian Schwochow, 2013), to the UK Premiere of Lines of Resistance (dir. Rose Butler, 2013), an installation which marks 25 years since the fall of the Berlin wall, while documentaries such as the UK Premiere of Forbidden Voices(dir. Barbara Miller, 2012), and The Uprising (dir. Peter Snowdon, 2013) – for which Northumberland born, Belgium-based filmmaker Peter Snowdon will be in attendance - pay homage to the pan-Arab Spring which saw borders crossed not only throughout the middle east but online, across the world. The Mulberry House (dir. Sarah Ishaq, 2013)screening on Friday 19th September - explores similar themes from a more personal perspective, with Oscar-nominated Yemeni-Scottish, Cairo-based director Sara Ishaq coming to Berwick to present her film.
     
    A highlight for the Friday night is Orchestra of Samples (sponsored by Newcastle University and Simpsons Malt), which sees international audio-visual artists Addictive TV joined on stage by folk musicians from Northumbria and the Borders including rising star fiddle player Shona Mooney and master of the concertina Alistair Anderson.
     
     
     
     
     
     
    Other names to look out for over the five days include Philip Selway of Radiohead who comes to perform his new single accompanied by a Northern Film & Media and Northumberland County Council commissioned music video, not to mention the illustrious panel of judges making up the Inntravel Short Film Awards, Catherine Shoard, Head of Film at the Guardian is joined by Festival co-founder Marcus Coates as model and broadcaster Eunice Olumide presents.
     
    On Saturday 20th September is a preview of Approved for Adoption (dir. Jung & Laurent Boileau, 2012), a touching tale of a South Korean boy adopted in to a Belgian household – with the ‘boy,’ co-director Jung attending the screening. The film was selected by local students and forms part of the youth programme over the weekend which involves films made by and for children and young people, ranging from animations for those aged 3 and up, in Wee Films for Wee Ones, to Giraffada (dir. Rani Massalha, 2013), an inspirational family film from Palestine. Berwick Film Society meanwhile brings animator Em Cooper to the town for a special screening of Kiss the Water (dir. Eric Steel, 2012), the poetic portrait of Scottish fly-tier Megan Boyd.
     
    The promenade of installations continues over the weekend, presenting an opportunity to see the historic town like you’ve never seen it before. Newly commissioned artists John Wallace & Professor Pete Smith have been exploring the region’s relationship to two rivers as a border in Tweed-Sark Cinema (2014, supported by Northumbria University and Northumbrian Water), Glasgow-based artist Rachel Maclean’s A Whole New World (2014) imagines a fallen British empire while Uzbekistan-born artist Kristina Cranfeld’sManufactured Britishness(2013) – who will give an artist talk in Berwick alongside Ben Russell and John Wallace - explores citizenship, all of which are sure to resonate with audiences from both sides of the border.
     
    When it comes to those north of the border, From Scotland with Love (dir. Virginia Heath, 2014) marks the Festival itself crossing into Scotland for the first time, with this medley of archive footage being presented in the beautiful surroundings of the gallery at Paxton House in Berwick – north of the Tweed on Sunday 21st September.
     
    Closing the Festival is a preview of Ida (2013)– a firm favourite on the international festival circuit from BAFTA winning director Pawel Pawlikowski.   
     
    The Festival continues to offer 5 day Festival passes for just £7 per day – coming in at £35 (£30 concessions) visitors to Berwick can experience the full gamut of films, installations and live events from 17th – 21st September.

    LA DOLCE VITA DOWNTOWN ITALY IN FINE FORM AT THE 38th MWFF

    As always the Montreal World Film Festival has a bumper crop of Italian films to show, this year more than ever. Starting with the president of the jury, Sergio Castellitto, and continuing through various sections of the Festival, lovers of Italian cinema will have plenty to celebrate.

                Thirteen films, produced or co-produced by Italy, are on show and Pupi Avati will be on hand for the premiere of his new film along with a large delegation of Italian film people.

     

    World Competition

                UN RAGAZZO D’ORO (A Golden Boy), directed by Pupi Avati. Davide's father, Ettore, was a scriptwriter of B-grade movies based on bad jokes. Davide is an advertising copywriter whose dream is to write something of value. Father and son never understood each other, and probably never really talked. When Ettore dies in a suspicious car accident -- seemingly a suicide -- Davide’s life takes an unexpected turn. He leaves Milan, his job, his girlfriend Silvia, and moves in with his mother in Rome. In his mother's house his father’s presence, frustrations, secret dreams can still be felt. Ettore’s greatest dream: Ludovica (Sharon Stone), a radiant woman, a publisher who was interested in publishing the autobiographical book Ettore wanted to write. Davide, intrigued by the idea of finally getting to know his father, looks for this mysterious book in his father’s papers but he finds nothing. Frustrated but intrigued, he decides to write the book himself.       

                AMANET (The Last Wish), by Namik Ajazi, an Albanian-Italian co-production, is set in Albania in the 1980s. Life in the country has turned into a real hell and Enver Hoxha’s paranoia reaches its peak as he gets rid of his closest “friends” one after the other. One of them is Mentor, head of the Secret Service. Sensing the danger Mentor locks himself night after night in a secret room of his house and starts recording the events he was involved in from the beginning of the Communist regime. He gives the tapes to his son, who escapes to Italy.
                THE WRONG STORY (Una storia sbagliata), by GianlucaMaria Tavarelli, is set in Gela, a town on the southern coast of Sicily, where a soldier, Roberto, and a nurse, Stefania, are deeply in love. They decide to get married. Their life unfolds normally until Roberto dies from a bomb in Iraq. Devastated, Stefania decides to visit the site to figure out what really happened. Expecting to find enemies, she finds instead people who are asking the same social and political questions that are being posed in the west, about health, the environment, poverty. Her vision of the world changes. So does her mission in life.

     

    Focus on World Cinema

                THE FIFTH WHEEL (L’ultima ruotta del carro), by Giovanni Veronesi. Ernesto Marchetti is an everyday hero, a humble house mover. As a boy, his father explained the facts of life for someone in his social and economic circumstances: "You are a fifth wheel". Upholsterer, nursery school cook, mover, chauffeur, film extra... the only way to get ahead in life for a fifth wheel is to keep moving. And through Ernesto we are cast a cynical and watchful gaze on the vices and virtues of Italy and Italians, a journey through contemporary Italy that lasts for four decades.
                TIR, by Alberto Fasulo. Travelling around European roads, Branko has turned into a truck driver who is farther away from everything and everyone, living on his own in his cabin while trying to give his family a better life. Day and night, for long weeks, becoming one with his truck, he now earns three times his wage as a teacher, but everything has a price, even though sometimes it is not measurable in money.

                PERFIDIA, by Bonifacio Angius. After his wife dies, Peppino finds himself faced with the problem of his son Angelo who, despite being 35 years old, still lives at home, without a job or a steady girlfriend.

                THE MAFIA KILLS ONLY IN SUMMER (La mafia uccide solo d’estate), by Pierfrancesco Diliberto aka Pif, brings us back to Sicily. The day the well-known Mafioso Vito Ciancimino is elected mayor of Palermo is also the day Arturo is born, and this coincidence will have many more consequences on his life than one would think. In fact, the boy has two obsessions: his tormented love for Flora, who shares a desk with him in class; and the frightening connections between his city and the Mafia.
                AND THERE WAS EVENING AND THERE WAS MORNING (E fu sera, e fu mattina), by Emanuele Caruso, is set in Avila, where, in the town’s main square, everybody is celebrating the feast of Saint Eurosia, protector of earth's harvest. But something is also happening in the village bar, where all eyes are glued to the television set...
                THE SCULPTURE (La scultura), by Mauro John Capece. Moses is a talented sculptor totally committed to his art who struggles to eke out a living. He decides to rent a room to Korinne, a beautiful woman who works as an escort and is thoroughly convinced that the primary goals of life are easy money and external beauty. The meeting between Moses and Korinne leads to a love story that will change their lives forever.

                CLOSER TO THE MOON by Nae Caranfil, is a Romania-USA-Italy-Poland co-production set in 1959 telling the true story of a Romanian police officer who teams up with a small crew of old friends from the World War II Resistance to pull off a heist by convincing everyone at the scene of the crime that they are only filming a movie.

               

                Plus two short films: CORAL, by Giacomo Martelli, in which Pio, a Samoan fisherman, one day ventures into an off-limits lagoon and is faced with a moral dilemma by his discovery; and I KNOW YOU by Colin Gerrard and Simone Gallorini, which shows how in a game of confidence, it doesn't matter who you are, it's who they think you are.

               

    World Documentaries

                HAPPY TO BE DIFFERENT (Felice chi è diverso), by Gianni Amelio, guides us through a secret Italy, its homosexual world before the 1980s, when the first attempts at "gay liberation" began to meet success. The film documents those who experienced the burden of being different,  people, now elderly, who remember how they lived this situation under Fascism and then in the Second World War, when a veil of silence was drawn over the topic, and people lived in fear and repression.

                The Montreal World Film Festival runs from August 21 to September 1. Coupon booklets and individual tickets are available August 16 to 21, from noon to 7 pm, at the Cinéma Imperial and the Cinéma du Quartier Latin  As well, festivalgoers may purchase their tickets through the Admission network beginning August 22.

    Dorothy Arzner (1897-1979) was one of a kind in the history of American cinema, the only woman to carve out a professional career as a director in Hollywood's Golden Age. In its 62nd edition, the San Sebastian Festival pays homage to the work of Arzner, today considered a pioneer in women's incorporation to the film industry, proclaimed as a filmmaker of strong style and personality for which she earned undeniable prestige within the Hollywood studio system.

    Born in San Francisco but raised in Los Angeles, Dorothy Arzner made her directorial debut withFashions for women (1927), going on the following year to become the first women ever to direct a talkie with Manhattan Cocktail (1928). Arzner directed 15 films throughout the 30s and the early 40s, working with Hollywood stars such as Clara Bow, Katharine Hepburn, Fredric March, Rosalind Russell, Claudette Colbert, Maureen O'Hara and Joan Crawford in comedies and melodramas with particular focus on female characters. In 1933 she became the first woman to join the Directors Guild of America and was its only female member for several decades. Although her name was progressively forgotten, Arzner's career was ratified in the 60s by feminist movements and received numerous tributes, including one by the Directors Guild of America in 1975. Today her films are not only newly appreciated for being an unusual exception in the history of American film, but also for their intrinsic values. Arzner left her stamp on several films of refined visual style that questioned traditional sexual roles and the part played by women in society or which, according to certain critics, introduced veiled homosexual undertones to the rigid Hollywood structure of the time.

    The retrospective dedicated by the San Sebastian Festival to Dorothy Arzner will feature her twelve surviving films. It is organised together with Filmoteca Española. To accompany the cycle, a bilingual (English and Spanish) book will be published on the filmmaker, written by Judith Mayne.    

     
    THE WILD PARTY
    Dorothy Arzner  (USA)  1929

    The explosive Clara Bow (in her first talkie) and the man who would become one of Arzner's favourite actors, Fredric March, star in this surprising and brazen film shot before the Hays Code of censorship was imposed upon Hollywood. 

    SARAH AND SON
    Dorothy Arzner  (USA)  1930

    A melodrama that earned the leading lady, Ruth Chatterton, an Academy Award nomination for her part as an opera singer searching for the son she lost many years ago. 

    ANYBODY'S WOMAN
    Dorothy Arzner  (USA)  1930

    A rather daring romantic comedy for its day; a lawyer and a chorus girl waken man and wife after a night on the tiles. All sorts of confusions ensue. 

    HONOR AMONG LOVERS
    Dorothy Arzner  (USA)  1931

    A luxury cast (Claudette Colbert, Fredric March and Ginger Rogers) for a melodrama in which Dorothy Arzner looked at a rather unusual subject for films of the time: sexual harassment in the working environment. 

    WORKING GIRLS
    Dorothy Arzner  (USA)  1931

    Adaptation of a play by the author popular in her day, Vera Caspary, this film represents yet another shrewd look at the world of women by Dorothy Arzner seen through the portrayal of two friends in search of work and a husband.

    MERRILY WE GO TO HELL

    Dorothy Arzner  (USA)  1932

    The tale of an alcoholic author and the woman who rescues him is turned in Dorothy Arzner's hands into a romantic comedy taking yet another look at the role of women in a couple's relations. 

    CHRISTOPHER STRONG
    Dorothy Arzner  (USA)  1933

    Katharine Hepburn embodies one of her typical spirited female characters in this eye-opening melodrama from Arzner, a full-on snub of the nose to the usual roles played by women in classic movies: the love affair between an MP and an aviatrix. 

    NANA

    Dorothy Arzner  (USA)  1934

    Dorothy Arzner adapted Émile Zola's classic novel into a film to flatter a would-be star soon forgotten by Hollywood, Anna Sten. Set in 19th century Paris, this is a curious foray by the director into period melodrama. 

    CRAIG'S WIFE
    Dorothy Arzner  (USA)  1936

    This melodrama sees another of the big Hollywood stars who worked under the orders of Dorothy Arzner, Rosalind Russell, play a domineering woman who marries a wealthy man for money and power.

    THE BRIDE WORE RED
    Dorothy Arzner  (USA)  1937

    Joan Crawford and a spectacular red dress by the famous designer Adrian star in one of Dorothy Arzner's most popular romantic comedies, a tale of love and luxury once again featuring an unforgettable female character. 

    DANCE, GIRL, DANCE
    Dorothy Arzner  (USA)  1940

    Maureen O'Hara and Lucille Ball wrangle in a professional and sentimental duel set in the world of show business and spiced up with musical numbers. 

    FIRST COMES COURAGE
    Dorothy Arzner  (USA)  1943

    Dorothy Arzner's last film was her contribution to the warring efforts of the allies during World War II; a spy story where Merle Oberon brings life to an anti-Nazi resistance worker in Norway who must choose between love and duty.

    The 38th Montreal World Film Festival August 21 - September 1, 2014


     

    Since its founding 38 years ago, the Montreal World Film Festival continues to offer film lovers and professionals a rich program based on cultural diversity, innovation, independence and creativity. The success and international reputation of the Montreal World Film Festival are firmly linked to these principles and goals.

    The World Film Festival is the only competitive film event in North America recognized by FIAPF, the International Federation of Film Producers’ Associations.

    Influence Communication, Canada's top information broker and aggregator, which collects and aggregates 700,000 news items from around the world, analyzed fallout from the Montreal World Film Festival and concluded that it is "Quebec's standard-bearer in international media", the Quebec event that is the most widely covered around the world.

    The exhibition of films in movie theatres has undergone considerable transformation in recent years. For a long time, even ahead of New York and Los Angeles, Montreal was the North American city where cinephiles could avail themselves of the broadest selection of works from around the world. These days, the programming of commercial cinemas is dominated by blockbusters. Without the Montreal World Film Festival and its annual selection of some 400 films from 80 countries, the Montreal film landscape would be drastically reduced.

    In addition to its program of screenings, the Festival presents a wide series of film-related activities. We invite you to consult our web site regularly for details.

    Bon festival!

    GET A JOB the comedy made in Hawaii and directed by Maui’s Brian Kohne took top honors for a full feature film while THE DOORMAN filmed in New York by director Serena Dykman took top accolades for a short.  This was at the eighth annual Trinity International Film Festival held at the Carr Art Center.  

     

    Last year’s full feature winner was NAA BANGARU THALLI, directed by Rajesh Touchriver.  It was the Telugu version of the Malayalam film ENTE which was about sex trafficking in India.  The film went on to great critical acclaim. 

     

    “The mission statement of the film festival is to provide a multicultural festival experience,” said festival co-director Gregory Taylor.   He continued, “With the showing of all these culturally diverse independent films, I know we hit the mark.  If people are entertained we did our job.”

     

    Full crowds watched on two screens at the T.I.F.F. as over 40 films from 14 countries were juried and showcased.  Over 100 entries were received.  Director Walter V. Marshall of Michigan got a special award as Best New Artist for the full feature, A LOVE THAT HURTS.     https://www.facebook.com/Alovethathurts

     

    Raymond Rolak, one of the producers from GET A JOB was on hand to receive their award.  The filmmaker said, “The people of Hawaii were the real stars of the film.  Also, Brian Kohne weaved the musical talents of Willie K and Eric Gilliom along with the other world class island entertainers masterfully.  The film and music video were giant grand slam homeruns.  The jokes, pratfalls and island humor in the screenplay are all added value to leaving viewers thoroughly entertained.”   Kohne, along with producer Stefan Schafer and cinematographer Dan Hersey are in pre-production for the Hawaiian thriller KULEANA.   www.getajobmovie.com

     

    French born Serena Dykman said at the afterglow, “I am totally thrilled for my cast and crew.  This award really validates all the hard work that went into the project.  Manhattan was the star of our project.  As a writer I see so many more stories coming from New York City.  This award documents a team effort.”  Dykman who was raised in Brussels is in post-production on another New York short, BED BUGS & CO.

     http://www.serenadykman.com/#!the-doorman/c1747

     

    Rolak added, “The afterglow at the “Coaches Corner” across the street from the Carr Arts Center was a nice touch.  We all are grateful for the warm and generous Detroit hospitality from Heather Raye and her staff.  There was a lot of cinema networking going on, from both sides of the camera.  The Trinity International Film Festival exceeded beyond all expectations.”     

     

    Winners of this year’s best feature and short film categories received a professional prize pack from Sony that included more than $3,500 worth of Sony Vegas editing software and sound effects.

     Lafemme logo 2012

    LA Femme International Film Festival is a premier festival that focuses on platforming women filmmakers “by women, for everyone”. Our Festival was created in 2005, when it became apparent that there was a need to enhance women behind the camera as Directors, Producers, and Writers.
    LA Femme Film Festival is more than a festival it is an emergence of artistic, professional women who can make a difference in the entertainment community by creating productions that speak to a world wide audience. We will be the only festival of its kind to not only platform existing films and artists but will also distribute and mentor such films and artists.

    What We Need & What You Get

    Festivals like this rely on the generosity of people like you. 

    We need this $2000 to ensure that we can comfortably run the first season of CDFF. So where will your hard-earned dollars be going, exactly?

    • To book the appropriate venue, technician(s), and equipment needed to make the Festival a reality
    • For advertising, printing, and other promotional costs
    • To provide recognition and compensation for our chosen filmmakers
    And now for the important stuff: what YOU get! In addition to all the lovely perks described on the side of the screen, you also get to know that you supported independent filmmakers in the Ottawa-area and abroad. And that's priceless, really!

    The sixth edition of the Montreal Stop Motion Film Festival is proud to announce the release of its official program for 2014. This year, the Festival will be taking place on September 26th, 27th, and 28th in the J.A. de Sève Theater at Concordia University (1453 Mackay Street, Montreal).

     

    The Montreal Stop Motion Film Festival, the first of its kind, has been promoting stop motion since 2009. Last year, we had a stellar presentation as we celebrated the 20th anniversary of the release of The Nightmare Before Christmas with our first full house presentation.

     

    This year’s edition is proud to announce the coming of two professionals from the field of Stop Motion animation who will take us behind-the-scenes of the television series Robot Chicken and the upcoming feature film from LAIKA studio, The Boxtrolls.

     

    Alex Kamer, animation director on Robot Chicken, will join us on Friday, September 26th to start the festival off right. Alex will talk about some of the highlights of his career in stop motion before moving onto a behind-the-scenes look at the production of Robot Chicken. Some of the show’s most beloved characters will also be on display during the talk.

     

    The release of LAIKA’s stop motion production The Boxtrolls coincides with the sixth edition of this year’s festival. Mrs. Georgina Hayns, creative supervisor of the famous puppet fabrication department at LAIKA, will join us on September 27 to give a talk about the making of the handcrafted stop motion feature film. With a behind-the-scenes tour, she will describe the major undertaking involved in the making of this remarkable animated film.

     As a special treat, production puppets will also be on display.

     

    The Montreal Stop Motion Animation Film Festival is one of the few that can offer an up close and personal look at the different handcrafted puppets from major stop motion productions.

     

    In addition to the 60 films in official competition, talks, and guest artists, the festival is also offering two free family screenings, presented by Mega Bloks, and six hands-on pods with animation software so that young animators can discover the magic of animation on site.

     

    The Montreal Stop Motion Film Festival promises to be like no other festival in town!

     

    A talk with Alex Kamer, Animation Director on Robot Chicken Friday, September 26:  7:00 p.m.

     

    Robot Chicken is the brainchild of Seth Green and Mathew Senreich. Based on popular super-heroes and various characters from childhood, they parody the pop culture conventions with fast paced sketches to create hilarious comedic situations using stop motion animation.

    Alex Kamer has been working for several years on the series and now serves as Animation Director on its 7th season! Alex will talk about some of the highlights of his career in stop motion, beginning with how he got into it right up to his work on Robot Chicken.  He will also share his insights and a behind-the-scenes look at the production work and how they adapt to work in a fast paced environment. Some of the beloved character of the show will also be on display.

     

    THE OFFICIAL FILM SELECTION

    More than sixty stop motion films from twenty-five countries will be presented on the big screen. The jury will select a winner in each of the following categories:

    The jury is composed of three members of the stop motion community: Mark Osborne, Pascal Blais, and Georgina Hayns. The winners will be announced on Sunday evening, the closing night of the festival.

     

    OTHER ACTIVITIES NOT TO BE MISSED

     

    A talk with Georgina Hayns, Creative Supervisor, Puppet Fab at LAIKA Saturday, September 27: 7:00 p.m.

     

    Coinciding with the release date of The Boxtrolls, we are very pleased to announce that Mrs. Georgina Hayns, creative supervisor of the puppet fabrication department of LAIKA will be visiting the Montreal Stop Motion Film Festival on September 27!

     

    She has been involved in all aspects of puppet fabrication for stop motion films for over twenty years.

    LA Femme International Film Festival is a premier festival that focuses on platforming women filmmakers “by women, for everyone”. Our Festival was created in 2005, when it became apparent that there was a need to enhance women behind the camera as Directors, Producers, and Writers.
    LA Femme Film Festival is more than a festival it is an emergence of artistic, professional women who can make a difference in the entertainment community by creating productions that speak to a world wide audience. We will be the only festival of its kind to not only platform existing films and artists but will also distribute and mentor such films and artists.
