Read More: Why Indie Horror Films Are Doing Better Than Ever Now in its 19th year, Montreal's Fantasia Festival is not only one of the world's longest cinematic marathons – it runs for three solid weeks on the urban campus of Concordia University – it's one of the most welcoming and inclusive to its filmmakers. Though it has long ranked as North America's premiere genre film festival, its roster of international horror, sci-fi, action movies and visionary cinema has rich, surprising depths and detours that defy easy categorization. Fantasia makes a reliable barometer of everything from Asian pop and auteur developments to the latest low-budget zombie hayride, as well as a kind of rallying point for emerging Quebecois talents – the hometown team behind the post-apocalyptic, '80s-loving comedy revel "Turbo Kid" got a conquering hero's welcome. But its curatorial reach can be stealthily acute. It'll flip ya. Here's a look at five »

The 12 Indies to Watch on VOD This August: "Dark Places," "Tom at the Farm" and More

4 hours ago

Read More: The 13 Indie Films You Must See This August "Five Star" (August 4)Keith Miller's "Five Star" is set amid the perils of gang life in the Brooklyn housing projects, following a lifelong member of the Bloods as he takes the son of his slain mentor under his wings and verses him in the codes of the street. A setting and storyline often sensationalized on the big screen, Miller has earned widespread acclaim for bringing an unflinching realism to the proceedings, going so far as to use non-actors who are actual former gang members riffing on their own lives. The result is a film that creates an almost documentary feel to its narrative structure, blurring the line between fiction and reality for a powerful gang drama that taps into larger truths about its very real world. "Dark Places" (August 7)Based on the book of the same name by "Gone Girl" scribe Gillian Flynn, »

Exclusive: Zellner Brothers Reimagine Criterion Collection's 'Black Moon' Using a Samsung Galaxy S6

Read More: The Zellner Brothers Discover the Best Way to Relax During Sundance Filmmaking brothers Nathan and David Zellner were asked to pick any film from the Criterion Collection and reimagine it as a still-image narrative for the Summer/Fall 2015 issue of Bright Ideas, the independent film culture magazine. The duo chose Louis Malle's 1975 "Black Moon," a dark retelling of "Alice in Wonderland." For two weeks in June, the brothers explored the woods near their Austin, Texas homes and photographed what they found with only a Samsung Galaxy S6, and the results are nothing short of spectacular.  "What we like most about 'Black Moon' is the balance of grounded naturalistic qualities - pastoral setting on location, real animals - with a haunting, other-worldly fable," Nathan Zellner said. The collection of photographs, entitled "Black Something," will appear in the latest issue of Bright Ideas, debuting during Sundance's Next. »

"Cop Car" (August 7)(Film Page) Director: Jon Watts Cast: Kevin Bacon, James Freedson-Jackson, Hays Wellford, Camryn Manheim, Shea Whigham Criticwire Average: B- Why is it a "Must See"? Ever since it was announced that Jon Watts would be tackling Marvel and Sony's "Spider-Man" reboot, all eyes have turned to the writer-director's debut indie, "Cop Car," which premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival. The road thriller finds Kevin Bacon in predator mode after two young boys stumble across his abandoned cop car in a secluded glade and take it for a joy ride. The deadly cat-and-mouse game that follows moves at a tightly wound pace, thanks to editing by Megan Brooks and Andrew Hasse, and it's especially involving anytime the focus shifts on the two boys.

Watch: The Secrets of Donald Trump are Exposed in Resurrected Documentary 'What's the Deal?'

6 hours ago

Read More: Lies, Goons and Eco-Destruction: New Doc Shows Life Under Donald Trump The documentary "Trump: What's the Deal?" may have been completed in 1991, but it hasn't reached audiences in over two decades because Donald Trump himself made it very difficult for the film to be screened. He threatened networks, distributors and the filmmakers to prevent viewers from watching the investigative look at his life. Now, just in time for Trump's presidential race, the formerly suppressed documentary has been released to reach its intended audience. "Now that Trump is running for president, it's time for the American people to meet the real Donald and learn how he does business. The old Trump and new Trump? They're the same Trump," said producer Libby Handros. The documentary explores the notion that Trump's wealth isn't self-made or as abundant as he claims, while investigating his use of illegal immigrant labor, his connections with the mafia, »
