From the U.S. “The Red Robin” by Michael Z. Wechsler competes in the World section while Adam Rodgers’ “At Middleton” will unspool in the First World competition and Sam Fleischner’s “Stand Clear of the Closing Doors” plays in Focus on World Cinema.

Twenty helmers will screen their pics in a separate competition for first-time feature filmmakers. Organizers of the sprocket opera attribute the maelstrom of fresh talent to the industry’s digital evolution. Not a single 35 mm print was submitted for competition, and the increasing popularity of digital submissions invited more low-budget productions to toss their hat in the ring.

Robb Ghag reviews American Vampire Vol. 5...
"In this new American Vampire collection, Skinner Sweet, Pearl and company return to Hollywood in the ‘50s during the Red Scare. In a time when America was on the lookout for the next Communist threat, was the real danger far more insidious? Plus: Retired vampire hunter Felicia Book gets called back into action to kill the most powerful vampire of all time."
This is the book that closes the chapter on some of the characters that Scott Snyder has made come to life (or afterlife). If you’re a fan of American Vampire then you will find yourself in familiar surroundings as Agent Hobbes and a makeshift group of “heroes” take on the father of all vampires: Dracula.

For a guy who was also fired from the same job in Cleveland two years ago, Ryan seems oddly confident that he will find a place on another team, saying, "I'll be out of work for like 5 minutes." Speaking with the Dallas Morning Star, he elaborated on that saying, "I have no hard feelings. But it doesn't matter if I coach here or not. I will find another spot," before adding, "I'm too damn good."
Maybe he can find a place with his twin brother, Rex Ryan, on the NY Jets coaching staff. »
