Lisandro Alonso Named Lincoln Center Filmmaker in Residence

24 June 2014 6:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Argentine director Lisandro Alonso will be the Film Society of Lincoln Center and Jaeger-LeCoultre’s 2014 Filmmaker in Residence.

A minimalist filmmaker whose narrative work has a documentary-like aesthetic, Alonso’s most recent film was “Jauja” with Viggo Mortensen, which was nominated for the Un Certain Regard Award at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

“Many times I think less is more,” Alonso told Variety. “It makes for a nice contrast to many big U.S. films.”

His other films include “La Libertad,” “Los Muertos,” “Fantasma,” and “Liverpool” — all of which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.

Alonso told Variety that he plans to use his residency to develop his next project, an exploration of people who live (and search for gold) in the Amazon jungle environment.

“I’m thinking about what kind of film can I make [in Brazil] about people who live outside of civilization and society and all these kinds of structures that we have, »

Must Watch Music Videos: Ghost Beach Has “Been There Before”

5 March 2014 10:34 AM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

You can add NYC band Ghost Beach to the ever-growing, unending, awe-inspiring, massively daunting list of bands we’re crazy excited to see this year at SXSW. Aptly self-identified as “tropical grit pop,” this New York based duo is making big waves heading into this year’s all encompassing music and media festival for their upcoming album. Last spring they made waves as well for their habit of giving away their tunes for free, which earned them a feature in The New York Times. Boasting a debut album full of pop heavy tunes with synths galore and fair amount of epic guitar solos, the group’s atmospheric punk vibe lends easy comparisons to Depeche Mode or The Police. And with the momentum they’ve built up so far, it’s a safe bet that they may eventually become as well regarded as the previously mentioned pantheons of 80s pop awesomeness. »

On the Job With Jennifer Lee, Director of Frozen

28 February 2014 11:30 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

It's a rare thing for any first-time director's film to be nominated for - let alone win - a Golden Globe, but Jennifer Lee's debut movie, Frozen, did just that this year. The win was a meaningful one for Jennifer, who, by her own admission, took a "circuitous" route to the director's chair. She started her career in the world of literature, working in book publishing, before going to film school at Columbia and later landing a gig as cowriter of Wreck-It Ralph. Still, the shift wasn't completely out of left field; serendipitously enough, Jennifer's dream as a kid was to become a Disney animator. Frozen gave Jennifer a unique opportunity to celebrate "wild and wonderful" girls like her childhood self and her own 10-year-old daughter, Agatha. "I was the one that would stain my dress the minute I put it on," she told us with a laugh. The »
