Virtual Reality Films Take Hold at Fall’s Film Festivals

10 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The possibility that virtual reality could push the limits of the moviegoing experience took a leap forward with Alejandro G. Inarritu’s immigration-themed installation “Carne y Arena” at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

But on the A-list festival circuit, it’s the Venice Film Festival that is leading the way in the Vr arena.

There are of course other film festivals around the world that to varying degrees have been dipping their toes into what is becoming the Vr craze.

Sundance, which was the first to explore and open up to interactive storytelling, has the New Frontier Story Lab residency program and showcases Vr works as a non-competitive sidebar; Tribeca has its immersive Storyscapes and Visual Arcades programs; Toronto last year launched a separate Vr strand called Pop Vr, which featured five pieces; Geneva Intl. Film Festival Tous Ecrans, which runs in November, started a competitive section with roughly 10 virtual reality works in 2016. And the Dubai »

Review. Where Is This Getting Us? — Michael Winterbottom's "The Trip to Spain"

18 hours ago | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

“Our gentleman was approximately fifty years old; his complexion was weathered, his flesh scrawny, his face gaunt, and he was a very early riser and a great lover of the hunt.” What the description lacks in flattery it redeems with comic affection. A few pages later, CervantesDon Quixote (by way of Edith Grossman’s English translation) imagines describing himself, to a love interest, as “never sufficiently praised.” Can you picture Steve Coogan in the role? Gone bonkers from reading too many books, yearning for a campaign of romantic chivalry and publicly displayed valor, Quixote recruits his farmer neighbor Sancho Panza, “a good man…without much in the way of brains,” who, when promised an island, “left his wife and children and agreed to be his neighbor’s squire.” Here, how about Rob Brydon? Assuming you even know who he is.It was Brydon, in 2010’s The Trip, who wryly »

Brad Fischer and James Vanderbilt will produce with Kripke. The exec producers include William Sherak, Tracey Nyberg, and Laeta Kalogridis.

If a deal closes, the film would give Blanchett another family-friendly feature with “Thor: Ragnarok” bowing this November.

Every Predictable Beat in a Blockbuster Trailer Broken Down in One Hilarious Video — Watch

15 August 2017 8:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As it turns out, the secret to success in Hollywood is far less evasive than one might think. From formulaic three-act structures to the ceaseless churn of superhero franchises, it’s unusual to be surprised by a studio movie these days. One sitting through any batch of previews proves the formula extends to trailers as well, cunning exposed in a new video parody.

Expertly breaking down a tried and true method for raising a person’s blood pressure to a fever pitch in a little under two minutes, “How to Make a Blockbuster Movie Trailer” uses only sound and text to parody the ubiquitous studio trailer. “A single note. A single not over establishing shots,” it begins. “Introduce unexpected cover of a classic hit,” it reads as a raspy woman’s voice sings Dead or Alive »

15 August 2017 7:41 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The 2017 Locarno Film Festival recently wrapped its 70th edition, where several aspiring film critics participated in the latest edition of the Locarno Critics Academy, an international workshop to educate promising writers in the craft and discipline of contemporary film criticism. This year’s participants will contribute essays on highlights from the festival. Here’s an overview of their backgrounds and interests.

Name: Jaime Grijalba Gómez

Age: 27

Twitter handle: @jaimegrijalba

Home: Santiago de Chile, Chile.

I’m taking part in the Locarno Critics Academy because… I want to think that criticism today still has a role that goes beyond those interested in film or in making them. It has a role in society, and I want to find it. »

The Best Movie Trilogies Ever Made — IndieWire Critics Survey

14 August 2017 11:16 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of “The Trip to Spain,” what is the best movie trilogy?

Richard Brody (@tnyfrontrow), The New Yorker

Far be it from me to choose between Antonioni’s non-trilogy “L’Avventura,” “La Notte,” and “L’Eclisse” and Kiarostami’s explicitly-denied “Koker” trilogy of “Where Is the Friend’s Home?,” “Life and Nothing More,” and “Through the Olive Trees” (and I’m tempted to make a trilogy of trilogies with Carl Theodor Dreyer’s “Day of Wrath,” “Ordet,” and “Gertrud”), but if I put Kiarostami’s films first, it’s because he puts their very creation into the action.

Film festivals play crucial role for indie cinemas, say Sarajevo panel

14 August 2017 11:16 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Regional exhibition in the spotlight at Sarajevo Film Festival’s CineLink.

This year’s Avant Premiere strand of Sarajevo Film Festival’s CineLink industry programme, which offers attendees insight into regional film activity, put the spotlight on the development of the exhibition sector in Southeast Europe.

Held in collaboration with European exhibition network Europa Cinemas, the Avant Premiere Lab consisted of workshops for regional exhibitors from both multiplexes and independent cinemas, with the aim of helping them to develop audiences and to promote cinema-going as the primary channel for consuming films.

Speaker Javier Pachon, president of Spanish arthouse cinema network CineArte, and director of Mallorca-based indie cinema CineCiutat, described how his location had managed to survive the decline of indie cinemas in Spain, which he said had seen the number of theatres drop by 35% between the years 2005 and 2015.

“Go where the attention is,” he said, referencing the fact that the 400,000 inhabitants of Palma, Mallorca’s capital »

Amazon Films Lead 2017 New York Film Festival

9 August 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

This week Lincoln Center unveiled the full lineup for the 55th iteration of the New York Film Festival. The 25 main slate films announced join Richard Linklater’s “Last Flag Flying,” Todd Haynes’ “Wonderstruck,” and Woody Allen’s “Wonder Wheel,” the opening, centerpiece, and closing films, respectively. Movie buffs are taking notice of the fact that all three of the above, the most prestigious screening slates, are films distributed by Amazon Studios, a streaming service. Because the festival is known for highlighting the artistic, more challenging side of filmmaking, its acceptance of streaming services’ projects is seen by some in the industry as legitimizing the newer medium, perhaps even opening up the road to film awards season. Of the selection, Festival Director and Selection Committee Chair Kent Jones said, “We choose the best films we see, and the common themes and preoccupations arise only after the fact.
