‘Get Out’ Hits the Oscar Campaign Trail With a Timely Hamptons Event

14 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Did Oscar season actually start in February? When Jordan Peele’s feature directorial debut “Get Out” opened in late February (not typically a release date space that hosts zeitgeist-smashing hits), few could have expected that the social thriller would not only be a success with critics (the film still sits at a 99% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes) but also a huge moneymaker, pulling in over $252 million at the global box office. Next up? An awards campaign. Chatter surrounding the film’s awards possibilities kicked up early, and the trick has been keeping it up though these many months. One way to do that? A special event at a festival known for its love of award movies. “Get Out” is already into it.

Peele and his film are set for a timely Hamptons International Film Festival appearance later this month, when the festival runs October 5 – 9 in and around East Hampton, NY. »

‘Women Who Kill’ Director Ingrid Jungermann Is the Unapologetic Lesbian Filmmaker We Need

28 July 2017 1:28 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Ingrid Jungermann, unlike some of her contemporaries, does not balk at being called a lesbian filmmaker. “I think you should demand to be called a queer filmmaker,” she said. “It’s a badge. I think it’s kind of irresponsible when people are like — ‘I wanna be known as just a filmmaker.’ That insinuates you’re not proud.” One look at Jungermann’s already impressive but still fledgling career, and it’s easy to see where her loyalties lie.

Her breakout web series, “The Slope,” created with Desiree Akhavan while the two were in Ira Sachs’ class at Nyu film school, starred the creators as a content-to-be-bitter lesbian couple who bicker amusingly about everything from co-op etiquette to normative gender roles. After developing a cult following online, Jungermann stepped up her game with her next series, »

Women Making Movies: ‘Band Aid’ Filmmaker Zoe Lister-Jones Explains How to Employ an All-Female Crew (And Why It Works)

2 June 2017 7:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Girl Talk is a weekly look at women in film — past, present, and future.

Long-time actress, writer, and producer Zoe Lister-Jones had a big idea when she decided to move behind the camera to direct her first film: she wanted an all-female crew to assist her. On her directorial debut, “Band Aid,” Lister-Jones was joined on set by producer Natalia Anderson, director of photography Hilary Spera, and a team that included female art directors, camera operators, electricians, sound editors, and many more. It was a revolutionary idea that the filmmaker found essential to execute, if only to prove that such a move was indeed possible.

While the lack of female filmmakers working in the industry has become a firebrand topic over the past couple of years, diversity is also severely lacking in other areas of the crew. The Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film at San »

Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jena Malone, Drew Barrymore, Mary McDonnell, Katharine Ross, Patrick Swayze, and Noah Wyle.

Richard Kelly Reflects on ‘Donnie Darko’ and Finding Catharsis in Apocalyptic Narratives

29 March 2017 10:06 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Last year marked the 15-year anniversary of Richard Kelly’s debut cult curio, Donnie Darko. On March 31st, the film will hit theaters once again in a brand-new, director-approved 4K restoration. While the film’s cult-status has elevated it into its own separate canon alongside other 21st-century indie-cult hits, Kelly’s two other films — the positively delirious and daring Southland Tales and the labyrinthine sci-fi period piece The Box — prove that he is a director deserving of much greater consideration. Sadly it’s been about eight years since a new film of his has been in theaters, but the time is surely ripe. Kelly’s visions of the end-times feel just as urgent now as they did when we were first introduced to them back in 2001. And since we’re living in a time when the formerly reclusive Terrence Malick is miraculously pumping out multiple films a year, there’s »

Get Out Has a Darker Alternate Ending Says Director

5 March 2017 1:24 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Universal's horror-thriller Get Out has become somewhat of a cultural phenomenon, making headlines for scoring a 100% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes in its opening weekend, while easily taking the top spot at the box office. After dropping just 21% this weekend, Get Out has taken in over $75 million domestically, from just a $4.5 million budget. During a new interview, writer-director Jordan Peele reveals that he almost put in an alternate ending that was even more dark than the original ending. There will be Spoilers below if you haven't seen Get Out yet, so read on at your own risk.

Jordan Peele appeared on Buzzfeed's Another Round podcast, where he discussed the inspiration for making Get Out. The writer-director revealed that the notion of a "post-racial America" that surfaced during the Obama administration helped inspire this story about an interracial couple. Here's what the filmmaker had to say below.
