Sundance: Documentary ‘City of Ghosts’ Wins Candescent Award (Exclusive)

19 January 2017 12:13 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Matthew Heineman’s documentary “City of Ghosts” has won this year’s Candescent award at the Sundance Film Festival.

The Candescent award was created by actress-producer Lilly Hartley in partnership with the Sundance Institute documentary film program. The award goes to a powerful social-issue film that has been supported during production by the Dfp and premieres at the Sundance Film Festival.

Heineman, whose credits include the Academy Award-nominated “Cartel Land,” followed the journey of a handful of anonymous activists who banded together after their homeland was taken over by Isis in 2014. “City of Ghosts” centers on a group of citizen journalists — dubbed “Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently” — as they face the realities of life undercover, on the run, and in exile, risking their lives to stand up against Isis. Raqqa is an Isis stronghold in Syria.

“City of Ghosts” premieres in the U.S. documentary competition on Saturday at the Sundance Film Festival. »

Holding hands and keeping a close eye on each other, the casual couple took in the natural sights as they sipped on drinks and enjoyed the tropical weather.

Sundance 2017: Inside Drake Doremus’ Secretive Online Dating Film ‘Newness’

12 January 2017 6:30 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The new Drake Doremus movie “Newness” is the rare film that was kept a secret almost by accident. A last-minute addition to the Sundance Film Festival, the movie was financed and produced so quickly that the filmmaking team skipped the usual casting announcements and other publicity efforts that accompany most Hollywood movies. It’s not that the producers tried to fly under the radar – they were just too busy making the actual movie.

Doremus’ fourth film to premiere in Park City after “Douchebag,” “Like Crazy” and “Breathe In,” the movie stars Nicholas Hoult and Laia Costa as a couple in contemporary Los Angeles navigating the world of online dating and social media–driven hookup culture. The film co-stars Matthew Gray Gubler, Courtney Eaton, Danny Huston and Courtney Eaton.

Gael García Bernal, Peter Dinklage & Larry Wilmore Named To 2017 Sundance Film Festival Juries

11 January 2017 3:10 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The Sundance Institute announced the juries for the 2017 Sundance Film Festival this afternoon and, as usual, it’s a mix of indie-film veterans and familiar names.

The selections are notable because they are responsible for picking the festival’s prestigious jury awards that often help smaller films get distribution. Moreover, unlike the Venice, Berlin and Cannes festivals, a Sundance jury is relatively small with just five members for the major categories. The most important jury is, arguably, the U.S.

11 January 2017 2:50 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Each year, the Sundance Film Festival rolls out an enviable lineup of jury members — billed as “experts in film, art, culture and science” — to dole out awards to the feature-length works shown at the festival. In total, 28 prizes (and sometimes more!) will be announced at a ceremony on January 28 (as ever, Short Film Awards will be announced at a separate ceremony on January 24). The festival has now announced this year’s various jury members, including actors, filmmakers, producers, writers and other luminaries (and, yes, plenty of Sundance alums pop up amongst their ranks).

Additionally, the festival has also announced that actress, comedian, correspondent and podcast host Jessica Williams will host the annual awards. Jones seems poised to have a very busy Sundance indeed, as she also toplines James Strouse’s premiere “The Incredible Jessica James,” which will close out the festival the night before.

Interview: Gael García Bernal on Neruda, Zorro, and Other Characters

10 January 2017 5:41 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

This weekend at the Golden Globes, an unexpected but not all that surprising reunion of the best friends / stars of the Oscar nominated road trip classic Y Tu Mama Tambíen (2001) occured. Both Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna came to international fame together in the early Aughts and they're both still riding high in movies from Hollywood and outside of it.

I had the opportunity to speak with Bernal a month ago about his sturdy career, its auteurist origins, and his current busy playfulness. He's now juggling streaming television stardom (Mozart in the Jungle), occasional directing gigs, frequent producing duties, upcoming starring roles (Zorro?) and still doing what he was doing in his very first years of fame: headlining artistically ambitious Spanish language Oscar submissions. Though neither of his current films (Mexico's Desierto and Chile's Neruda) made Oscar's finalist list, Neruda did receive a well deserved Golden Globe nomination.
