     To mark a decade of bringing the best surfing films to Durban, the Wavescape Surf Film Festival has announced a record lineup of 23 movies over a week at the 36th Durban International Film Festival, which takes place from July 16 to 26.

    Every conceivable film technique and technology is represented in an extraordinary selection of films, according to Spike from Wavescape, co-director of the Wavescape festival. “We have some excellent documentaries, including the hair-raising story of the Signal Hill Speed Run in California that started downhill skateboard racing.”

    Wavescape 2015 boasts 12 short films and 11 medium or feature length movies that reflect a unique diversity. A unique trilogy of poetic shorts form a beautiful rendition of surfing in the UK: Sea Fever - and Irish film set to a John Masefield poem and gritty black and white footage; Edges of Sanity - a uniquely powerful piece narrated by Charles Dance who plays Tywin Lannister in Game of Thrones; and Chasing Rumours - moving from the clamour of a football match at Newcastle United to the nearby Tyne River where storm waves pound grimy shores.

    Included are films from the most remote wildernesses of Alaska (Arctic Swell) and the Arctic Circle (The Cradle of Storms). But from these frozen wastelands and frigid waves we sweep to the translucent tropical waters and reefs of Indonesia in the Mentawai Drone Movie, a short shot entirely by aerial drone.

    “Don’t miss the languidly beautiful pace of Bella Vita that takes us to Tuscany as an Italian surfer and activist retraces his ancient roots, or the hard-hitting feminist film Flux: Redefining Women's Surfing that ask serious questions of the surf industry.”

    "One of my favourite shorts is Narcose, an artistically rendered account of world apnea free diving champion Guillaume Néry's hallucinations caused by 'raptures of the deep' during one of his dives," says Spike.

    There are films about skateboarding in the urban precincts of Cape Town, and keeping within themes of sustainability, two South African shorts about wooden surfboard craftsman. From the epic surfing and slo-mo definition of worldclass surfing in Attractive Distractions, we move to Always on the Road, a beautifully shot film that traces the old surf routes of Europe along the Basque countryside, as well as France and Portugal.

    There are obligatory soul surfing movies (I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night, Missing, Rail to Rail and Se7en Signs) to a heady mix of high action surfing that can be found in Missing, Attractive Distractions, Strange Rumblings in Shangri La and Pipeline and Kelly Slater.

    And with any selection of surf films, there is the whacky wildcard: Expencive Porno Movie (sic) spoofs the "surf porn” genre, of endless shots of waves and wave-riding, with a cheesy 1960's Austin Powers theme. The widest collection yet hails from locations such as Namibia, Cape Town, Hawaii, California, Indonesia, Portugal, Spain, Alaska, Patagonia, and Australia.

    The free outdoor screening at the Bay of Plenty takes place Sunday 19 July. Ster Kinekor Musgrave screenings are from from Monday, 20 July to Saturday, 25 July.

    THE ARDENNES BY ROBIN PRONT TO OPEN THE 42ND FILM FEST GENT

    The 42nd edition of Film Fest Gent will open on Tuesday October 13th with Robin Pront’s debut film ‘The Ardennes’ starring Kevin Janssens, Jeroen Perceval and Veerle Baetens.

    Synopsis: A brutal home jacking goes hopelessly wrong. Dave, one of the two robbers, manages to run off, leaving his brother Kenneth behind. Four years later Kenneth is released from prison but a lot has changed over time. Dave has his life back on track and is trying to help Kenneth wherever possible, but is witnessing how his highly-strung brother tries to win back his ex-girlfriend Sylvie.

    Next to Veerle Baetens (‘Broken Circle Breakdown’), Kevin Janssens (‘Missing Persons Unit’) and co-writer Jeroen Perceval (‘Bullhead’), the supporting actors are Jan Bijvoet (‘Borgman), Sam Louwyck (‘The Wonders’), Viviane De Muynck (‘Racing Hearts’) and Peter Van den Begin (‘Kebab Royal’).

    Director Robin Pront: "As a young filmmaker I couldn’t imagine a better start for my first feature film. To open Film Fest Gent is the greatest honour you can achieve with your film in Belgium. Needless to say I’m very pleased with this opportunity. Another perk is that after several unsuccessful attempts, I will now finally get to attend the opening night of the film festival ;-) !" 

    Artistic director of Film Fest Gent, Patrick Duynslaegher on choosing ‘The Ardennes’ as the opening film: “We are delighted to open the 42nd edition of Film Fest Gent with ‘The Ardennes’. It’s a film festival’s duty to spot and showcase new talent. Which is certainly the case with Robin Pront, whose first feature film is a hole in one. It’s an amazing and, especially for Flanders, a rather unique mix of genre and arthouse cinema. This dark thriller is an uncut Flemish noir, not suitable for viewers who can’t take a little bloodshed, but highly recommended for anyone who wants to see a purebred filmmaker at work and enjoy the remarkable performances by Veerle Baetens, Kevin Janssens and Jeroen Perceval."

    ‘The Ardennes’ was produced by Bart Van Langendonck for Savage Film, co-produced by Eyeworks and PRPL/Bastide Films in the Netherlands and will be distributed in Belgium by Kinepolis Film Distribution (KFD). The film will be released nationally on October 14th 2015.

    The 42nd Film Fest Gent runs from 13 to 24 October at Kinepolis Ghent, Studio Skoop, Sphinx, Vooruit, KASKcinema, Music Centre Bijloke and Kuipke.

    RACING ARAB CHICKS AND BOUNDARY BREAKERS HIT ARAB FILM FESTIVAL

     

    The 12th annual Arab Film Festival Australia returns in 2015 boasting a melting pot of films from around the Arab world. The Festival will open in Sydney on Thursday 13 -16 August, Melbourne on Friday 21 - 23 August, and Canberra on Friday 28 - 30 August and will present six feature films and four short films.

     

    From a small Lebanese coastal village, to the racetracks of Palestine, to the iconic backdrop of the Arabian dessert, the Festival gives audiences the best of contemporary Arab films. Whilst conflict and instability continue to be the dominant representation of the Arab world, the filmmakers are uncovering rich and rare stories and capturing them in unique ways.

     

    “Arab filmmakers are reflecting exciting and sometimes volatile times, and through cinema they are making powerful statements, challenging stereotypes, and creating conversations about the future they dream for” says Festival Co-Director, Mouna Zaylah.We’re proud to showcase the diversity of the region with films from Jordan, Iraq, UAE, Palestine, Egypt and Lebanon.

     

    Festival Co-DirectorFadia Abboud is particularly looking forward to audience reactions to this year’s line-up. “In 2015 the Festival explores taboos from small towns to big cities: Arab chicks’ car racing in the West Bank; Arab boys taking a road-trip partying across borders and check-points. There’s a theme of pushing boundaries both physically and ideologically”.

    With much joy we announce the arrival of film score composer Simon Boswell to this year's Grossmann Fantastic Film and Wine Festival where we will together celebrate 30 years of his work in cinema. The festival starts on Tuesday, July 14th and will last until Satrurday, July 18th.

    Simon Boswell (born in London in 1956) has left an indelible mark on horror genre through numerous memorable and now-classical scores from the 1980s and 1990s in which he combined electronic elements with orchestral instruments.

    He was an accomplished musician by the time he started his film career in 1985, when several of his themes were used in Dario Argento's Phenomena. This led to his first composer credit, for Argento-produced Demons 2 (1986) directed by Lamberto Bava; he did several more scores for Bava Jr. and other Italian horror directors, most notably for Michele Soavi's debut Stage Fright (1987).
    His wonderful scores added grandeur and beauty to visionary works of several auteurs known for their unique style, like Alejandro Jodorowsky (Santa Sangre, 1989), Clive Barker (Lord Of Illusions, 1995), Álex de la Iglesia (Perdita Durango, 1997) and Juraj Jakubisko (Bathory: Countess of Blood, 2008).
    A special part of Boswell's career is linked with the director Richard Stanley: his haunting, melodic tunes have become inextricable from this director's films Hardware (1990) and Dust Devil (1992), but they also add the mystical mood to all of Stanley's documentaries, too.
    This composer is not devoted only to horror and fantastique: he contributed remarkable scores for Danny Boyle's Shallow Grave, and also for Hackers, Photographing Fairies, A Midsummer Night's Dream and dozens of others.

    In 2015 Simon Boswell celebrates 30 years of his work in cinema: a perfect timing to reunite him with his long-time inspirator, Richard Stanley, and greet them both on Grossmann! Besides a special retrospective, there will also be a master class, moderated by Serbian writer and critic Dejan Ognjanović who has also contributed an in-depth article on Boswell for our website and program booklet which was used in this article.

    Petr Jákl



    Milan Hlebec

     


    Jury motivations:


    - VICIOUS CAT (Jury: Richard Stanley, Jonathan English, Ivan Nedoh)

     For the main Vicious Cat award, this year saw a group of extremely impressive films, each with an exceptional quality which makes for a very difficult decision to choose one above the others. As always with film, its almost impossible to say this film is better than that. However, on taking into consideration the overall elements that are essential to a great film, the story, the characters and performances, the technical skills and perhaps, since this is a horror festival, just how scary the film is, we found that GHOUL was an exceptional work. Despite being a found footage story and the challenges this concept can provide, the film was convincing, passionate, riveting, and one of the scariest films we have had the pleasure of featuring at Grossman. We are delighted to award it this years Vicious Cat.

    For IDYLL a special commendation.
    As filmmaking develops around the world, with new trends and styles, one cannot give enough importance to new efforts in genre film-making, something we here at Grossman are particularly committed to. Therefore, it is with great respect and admiration, and even thanks, that we honor the work and special talent that went into making Slovenia's first ever horror film. We hope and believe this inspires others to continue on this path of horror and genre films from this country and we award it a special commendation at this year festival.

    - NOISY CAT (Jury: Igor Vidmar, Igor Bašin, Matej Končan)

    The documentary about one of the most important bands of the 90-ties, Bostonians Morphine, presents the whole genesis and evolution of its original sound as well as its internal creative dynamic through efective editing of the seminal archive material and the emotional but not sentimental testimonials by band members and the partner of Morphine leader and soul,the late Mark Sandman: it is a fitting document and tribute to a band that was a veritable alternative within the Nirvana-istic dominant rock alternative of the decade.

    - SLAK'S VICIOUS CAT (Jury: Stjepan Hundić, Milan Todorović, Sakari Määttä)

     Good storytelling, acting, directing, camera work and production design on a level of a feature film from a perspective of children who are listening to their grandpa's bedtime story. Also puts human emotions in the very center of the horror fairy tale with a feelgood feeling at the end.

    -MELIES D'ARGENT (Jury: Stjepan Hundić, Milan Todorović, Sakari Määttä)

     Very original and humourous aproach to fantastic comedy genre with characters and themes that everybody can relate to on a personal level. High production values and prolific acting lead to a unexpected ending. A well told story set in one room.

In four days full of film screenings, theatre performances, live events, panel discussions and networking receptions WoFF will bring new, more vibrant and youthful vibe to the city’s emerging film and theatre scene.

    WoFF’s errand is to bring together audiences from Glasgow’s multi-stranded art scene, while at the same time engaging people with powerful background in film and theatre that will bring fresh ideas, filling the gaps in Glasgow’s film and theatre events’ agenda.

    Yes the photo is upside down. Ha Ha Ha 

     

     

    Just for Laughs is the world's most popular comedy festival where young emerging comic talent come to get discovered.

     JFL also hosts the seasoned players as well and a star studded edition is already underway!  Just For Laughs has become a giant in syndicated television

    with a show also called simply Just For Laughs where gags are played on unsuspecting passerbys who get tricked, duped or whatever you want to call it for the

    sake of the show's theme.

    JFL is Clearly inspired by Allen Funt's Candid Camera which initially began as a radio show in 1947 called Candid Microphone the  TV show would

    have players and creators like Buster Keaton in a gag and Woody Allen as a scenario writer who also occasionally particiated part on screen and off.

    Buster Keaton appeared on the show; clips of his stunts were included in Thames Television's tribute to the comic actor. 

     

     A then-unknown Woody Allen was one of the writers for the show in the 1960s and performed in some scenarios.

  • 07/23/15--02:35: The sun always shines on TV
  •  
    I arrived in Durban, one of the world's top surf cities and a sub tropical paradise on 22 July and it's wet, cold and gloomy. 
    Allow me to quote eighties band A-ha when they sang "The sun always shines on TV". They sang about the unpredictable British weather; I am referring to what happens at one of the world's top film festivals.
    It may have been wet and cold outside, but the impact of the two world premieres screened on 22 July and the sold out signs at the ticket offence warmed my heart. It proved film is alive, DIFF is alive and that South African filmmaking is experiencing a renaissance.
    The line-up this year has the most SA films ever.
    I watched the shocking Blood Lions and inspirational To be a champion. Blood lions is an expose on tame hunting - not canned hunting where the animals are drugged. These animals are tame and are used to people. Instead of running away, they want human contact and then get shot. I almost vomited in my popcorn! 
    To be a champion is a beautiful and inspirational story of a black jockey from the township (slum) who won the jockey of the year. Blood lions has more screenings on 23 and 24 July and To be a champion has another screening on 25 july. I'm sure both doccies will travel to other festivals too.
    The highlight on 23 july is another SA documentary called Glory Game - The Joost van der Westhuizen story. Joost is a sports icon who suffers from Motor Neuron Disease. He competed in the Rugby World Cup.
