After three years as Artistic Director of the Locarno Film Festival, Olivier Père has stepped down and is now the managing director of Arte France Cinema. His time with the festival were pivotal years in which he transformed its direction and established Locarno as one of the key cinephilic stops on the circuit. I was fortunate enough to enjoy what has now surprisingly become the final festival under his direction. Père offers some parting words over at his official blog (which is well worth perusing for the rest of its contents). Cinema Scope has launched its intimidatingly comprehensive online pre-coverage of Tiff—in which yours truly will be taking part in. Check the introductory post here, and the first content from Jason Anderson and Mark Peranson on Peter Mettler's The End of Time and Miguel Gomes' Tabu, respectively.
