13 November 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway looks at the 45th Us President’s favourite movie…

If you haven’t been too busy watching and re-watching the international trailer for Rogue One, you may have noticed that there was a Us Presidential election this week, resulting in Donald Trump being elected to the White House.

During the election campaign, as happens, trivia about the candidates’ cultural tastes comes out during interviews and profiles, in an attempt to make those who are running for office seem more like normal people instead of narcissists who believe only they can save the world.

When asked about his favourite movie, Donald Trump didn’t say Razzie Award winning 1990 film Ghosts Can’t Do It, in which he had a cameo alongside Bo Derek, nor did he chose Home Alone 2: Lost In New York which he also appeared in. Neither did he name either of the Sex and the City films, »

BAFTA Opens Up Television Awards to More International Shows

1 November 2016 4:34 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has changed its rules on eligibility for its Television Awards and Television Craft Awards, opening up the honors to more internationally funded shows such as “The Crown” and “The Night Manager.” BAFTA has also revealed key dates for the awards (see below).

Regarding the Television Awards, BAFTA’s rule changes expand eligibility in all categories except international. Previously, entrants had to demonstrate that 50% of the budget came from the U.K., but this no longer applies. Instead, “they need to show that the creative control resides in the U.K. and that the initiative and creative development is driven from the U.K.,” said Emma Baehr, BAFTA’s director of awards and membership.

“‘The Crown,’ ‘The Night Manager,’ and ‘War and Peace’ may not have been eligible under the old rules because they had international funding, but under these new rules they will be because all the creativity is »

Lumière Festival: Mosfilm’s Karen Shakhnazarov Talks Economic Challenges of Film Restoration

11 October 2016 11:41 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

One of the world’s oldest and largest film production companies, Russian studio Mosfilm, set up in 1923, was the powerhouse of film production during the Soviet Union era, producing more than 3,000 films. It continues to be a major film producer, with over 1,200 employees. Leveraging the company’s extensive film library, Mosfilm has been a pioneer in the field of restoration of classic films, restoring around 7-8 titles per year, using intensive frame-by-frame restoration.

In 2010, the company launched a partner channel with Youtube featuring a large number of Soviet-era films, many of which were unknown in the West, including a substantial number with English-language subtitles.

Titles available on the Youtube channel include well-known films by Andrei Tarkovsky and Sergei Eisenstein and lesser-known titles such as “Zerograd,” (Gorod City), directed by Karen Shakhnazarov, who has served as Mosfilm’s General Director and Chairman since 1998.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter Director Claims Films Honor Source Material

11 October 2016 9:06 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Resident Evil: The Final Chapter set to close out the film franchise – at least this continuity – in a matter of months, we can’t deny that Paul W.S. Anderson and company have managed to pull off a feat that few are able to: Not only adapt a video game franchise to film, but create a legacy that spanned fifteen years.

Although the Resident Evil series of movies have proven to be quite divisive among fans of the games, its success with mainstream moviegoers was arguably a key ingredient for igniting the zombie craze that’s lasted for the past decade, give or take. And, according to Anderson, it’s his love for the games that gives the big screen adaptations an extra boost (via Polygon):

“This movie is made by people who genuinely adored the video game. No one would ever dream of adapting War and Peace without reading the book, »

BBC Worldwide Ups Stake in ‘Ripper Street’s’ Lookout Point to 49%

29 September 2016 5:08 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The BBC’s world sales arm, BBC Worldwide, has upped its stake in drama-show producer Lookout Point, whose credits include “War and Peace” and “Ripper Street,” to 49%. Bbcw has the option of taking full ownership of the company.

Bbcw and Lookout Point began their relationship in 2010 with a first-look distribution deal. This developed into a co-venture agreement for production financing and distribution, and Bbcw then took a 35% equity stake in Lookout Point in 2014.

The increased stake will “enable BBC Worldwide to support Lookout Point in its next phase of development, as Lookout Point expands to produce and launch a number of new high-profile productions, continuing its evolution from co-producer and arranger of finance to global producer,” Bbcw said in a statement.

Lookout Point’s chairman and joint CEO, Simon Vaughan, was joined by Faith Penhale as joint CEO earlier this year. Its 2016 productions include Mike Bartlett’s newspaper drama “Press,” co-produced »

‘Equal Means Equal’ Director Kamala Lopez On The Hard Truths Of Her Gender Equality Documentary – Springboard

26 August 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

IndieWire’s Springboard column profiles up-and-comers in the film industry worthy of your attention.

A working actress since the early ’70s, Kamala Lopez has appeared in films like “Born in East L.A.,” “I Heart Huckabees” and “Any Day Now,” as well as a lengthy list of televisions shows, from “Miami Vice” to “Walker, Texas Ranger” and “Resurrection Blvd.” Not content with the roles offered to actresses in Hollywood, Lopez began making her own films, and thereby her own opportunities.

With her latest, “Equal Means Equal,” this ambitious filmmaker aims to make new opportunities for women across America, changing the trajectory of her career in the process. Diving into ten topics of gender inequality — from rape culture to the Pay Gap to pregnancy discrimination — the daring documentary connects the dots to reveal a shocking source to all of the above: the failure to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. Lopez’s doc »
