Dir. Sheldon Candis and actor Michael Rainey Jr

Writer/director Sheldon Candis and producer Jason Berman talk with Josh Welsh, Film Independent’s Director of Artist Development, about their feature film Luv, which tells the story of William “Woody” Watson, a shy 11-year old boy who is forced to face the unpleasant truth about his only father figure during one harrowing day on the mean streets of Baltimore. Luv will have its world premiere in the narrative competition at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.

 

First off, congratulations on finishing Luv, and of course for getting into Sundance!  Sheldon, what’s your background and how did you get into film?

Sheldon Candis: I was born in Baltimore. Half of my childhood was there and the other half in Statesville, Nc. My love for movies came from two places: One, my father would religiously take my mom and me to see movies »

Sundance Film Festival Announces 2012 Competition Slate

30 November 2011 3:25 PM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

I love the Sundance Film Festival. The winners of the fest normally have long legs enough to last all the way until the Oscars. This year, for example, "Pariah" was one of the breakout hits from Sundance, and the Dee Rees coming-of-age flick is being distributed by Focus this month. Its star, Adepero Oduye, recently received the Best Female Lead nomination from the Independent Spirit Awards.

So now, Sundance has unveiled its in-competition slate for 2012 and the films, as always, are quite intriguing. The fest runs from Jan. 19th to the 29th in Park City, Utah. Check out the full list below:

We know only at the end, and I love that.”

John Cooper, Director of the Sundance Film Festival, said, “In these challenging economic times, filmmakers have had to be more resourceful and truly independent in their approaches to filmmaking. »

Competition Films For The 2012 Sundance Film Festival Announced

30 November 2011 2:47 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Sundance Film Festival is the largest independent cinema festival in the United States. Held in January in Park City, Salt Lake City, the festival is a showcase for new work from American and international independent filmmakers. The Festival has changed over the decades from a low-profile venue for small-budget, independent creators from outside the Hollywood system to a media extravaganza for Hollywood celebrity actors, paparazzi, and luxury lounges set up by companies that are not affiliated with Sundance.

Now the festival is getting ready for the 2012 edition and today they announced the films competing in all categories.

Here is the Sundance press release.

Grab your ski jackets and swag bags and start warming up your eyeballs: the Sundance Film Festival is almost upon us. 2012's Sundance runs from January 19 to 29 in Park City, Utah, and today the fest announced their first wave of programming, 58 titles in the Us and World Dramatic and Documentary Competitions.

The slate so far includes plenty of familiar faces. Sundancers in 2012 will get the first crack at new movies from Antonio Campos ("Afterschool"), Kirby Dick ("This Film is Not Yet Rated"), Ira Sachs ("Forty Shades of Blue"), and Mark Webber ("Explicit Ills"). I'm also intrigued by "Nobody Walks" from "You Won't Miss Me" director Ry Russo-Young and "Tiny Furniture" director Lena Dunham (Russo-Young directed, the two co-wrote the screenplay) and a cast that includes John Krasinski, Olivia Thirlby, and Rosemarie DeWitt. Aubrey Plaza and Mark Duplass star in "Safety Not Guaranteed" about "a trio of magazine employees investigating a »

Competition Films For The 2012 Sundance Film Festival Announced

30 November 2011 1:20 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Snow is falling, the temperature is dropping, movies are getting better. Some might say it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas but I say it's beginning to look a lot like Sundance. The 2012 Sundance Film Festival announced its first batch of films Wednesday, all of which are in competition. Meaning these are the films eligible for awards. It also means that, as of right now, these are the films you probably haven't heard of. But, at this time last year [1], the competition films included a ton that you've surely now heard of such as Another Earth, Circumstance, Like Crazy, Martha Marcy May Marlene, Pariah, The Guard, Tyrannosaur and Take Shelter. Those were just the narratives. In last year's documentary competition, films like Beats, Rhymes and Life, Being Elmo, How to Die in Oregon, Page One, Knuckle, Project Nim and Senna all played. Basically, while you probably haven't heard of these movies yet, »

Sex surrogates, happy drunks, not-so-happy drunks, teenagers in love, a little boy on a gangland odyssey and a trio of time-travel investigators are just a few of the movies in the competition line-up for the Sundance Film Festival this year.

There are also lots and lots of stories of people hooking up, trying to hook up, feeling bad about not hooking up, and all sorts of variations on that theme.

Click through for the newly announced slate of U.S. dramatic competition titles, with festival director John Cooper and chief programmer Trevor Groth as your guides.

Sundance Film Festival 2012 Competition Line-up Announced

30 November 2011 1:00 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

It seems like we are only just diving into the awards season, but the 2012 film year is right around the corner. There is no better place to get a tast of what is to come than Park City Utah in late January. We’ll be attending the fest again (read last year’s round-up) and today we have the first competition titles. This is the same group from last year which titles include Martha Marcy May Marlene, Like Crazy, Another Earth, Pariah, Being Elmo, Take Shelter and many more. Are there more great films to be found this year? I have no doubt the line-up below will include break-out titles, so lets get to it.

At first glance, the most notable film is Antonio CamposSimon Killer, who last directed Afterschool and is in the Martha Marcy trio. It is easily my most-anticipated from this group, along with Quentin Dupieux‘s Rubber follow-up Wrong. »

2012 Sundance Film Festival Competition Titles Announced

30 November 2011 12:35 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The Sundance Institute revealed their Us and World Cinema Dramatic and Documentary competition titles today for the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. The question, of course, is which films will break out this year after the 2011 Sundance Film Festival brought titles such as ,i>Martha Marcy May Marlene, Pariah, Like Crazy and Take Shelter to the forefront. I have never attended the Sundance Film Festival, primarily because I have never heard good things about the experience, plus it means I can save my money for my trip to Cannes where I have typically seen the some of the best films Sundance had to offer including Blue Valentine two years ago and Martha Marcy May Marlene this year. Which means it serves as a good way for me to find films to make sure I add to my Cannes 2012 must see list... can you figure out which ones they may be? When it »

The relationship served as the nucleus for the screenplay. “The very first time I wrote it was in the late 1970s. I wrote it again after I did Thief [1981]. I didn’t want to go back into the same arena.” The native of Chicago approached his friend »

You've Got Our Vote! The Sexiest Politicians of TV and Film

6 October 2011 6:19 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Politicians. They're the steadfast leaders who help humanity survive an alien invasion, they're the targets who need to be saved from danger by action heroes, they're the people we forget have the same emotional struggles we all do or they're the scheming villains who don't know how to use their power for good. Sometimes, they're also ridiculously good-looking. Here are some of our favorite politicians in pop culture:

Mike Morris, The Ides of March

George Clooney has been involved in more than a few politically-themed films but this weekend we get to see him play someone running for office. In The Ides of March, Clooney stars as an idealistic governor who learns about how dirty politics can get when he decides to run for President, a story inspired by Howard Dean's candidacy. Too bad the corrupt party leadership isn't composed of people who can be charmed with handsome looks and a disarming grin. »
