How the Academy Pushed the Diversity Needle with 683 Member Invites

29 June 2016 2:54 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

“Introducing the Academy class of 2016,” reads the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences website announcement of its invited new members Wednesday. And while joining that august organization is a singular honor, many say they were surprised to learn of their inclusion — mainly because they hadn’t applied for membership. Traditionally, that’s a laborious process that can take years before you get recommended by peers, vetted by your branch, and finally invited. Every year it’s a shock that someone like, say Tina Fey, IFC’s Arianna Bocco, last year’s Oscar-winner Margaret Sixel (“Mad Max: Fury Road”), or Oscar marketer Lisa Taback, wasn’t already a member.

5th Panama International Film Festival Builds in Industry Events, Regional Lineup

7 April 2016 1:04 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Panama City — Paddy Breathnach’s Cuban-set “Viva,” set in Havana’s drag nightclubs and selected as Ireland’s entry in this year’s foreign language film Oscar race, will open the fifth Panama International Film Festival (Iff Panama), which bows this Thursday, April 7.

Director Pituka Ortega Heilbron and artistic director Diana Sanchez consider this year’s edition the strongest to date, given the breadth of films slated, the range of guests, the record number of industry events and – key — the unprecedented number of films screening from Central America and the Caribbean.

“There are incredible films now coming out of this region,” says Heilbron. “We’re fortunate to have the perfect prerequisites for a coordinated and well-functioning festival, given the location of Panama City, its connectivity, infrastructure, hotels, access and support from the government, private sector and the local business sector.”

In a mere four years, Iff Panama has carved out »

The opening sequence of Agustí Villaronga's 1986 feature film debut, In a Glass Cage, further perverts that sense of empathetic identification by using subjective Pov to put us in the mind of a killer in the making.

Though the actions playing »
