Christmas is a time for giving, and with the festive period now upon us, and that all-important date now on the horizon, the race is on to find that perfect present for those special people in our lives. With a seemingly ever-increasing range of options to choose from, I thought it would be a nice idea to try to put together a little Christmas Gift Guide, to help finding those presents that little bit easier.
A lot of the time, buying someone a film or film-related gift can be difficult if your tastes run a little different, so hopefully this guide will help in giving some inspiration for anyone struggling to come up with ideas. I’ve tried to cater to various budgets, and there should be something for everyone amongst these pages.
Not all films are new to this year (hence various budgets), and so you may have to »

Now that the broadcast networks have set their prime-time schedules for the 2012-13 season, it's time to start strategizing what we'll be watching when the season kicks off in September. And in a few cases, it won't be easy.
It seems to happen just about every season: There are a handful of hours of primetime that will tax even the most high-capacity DVRs. We've already discussed the "Revenge"-"Good Wife" conundrum; here are four other time periods that could get crowded in the fall. All times are Eastern/Pacific.
Mondays at 10: Time for a 'Revolution'?
ABC and CBS are holding fast to their 10 p.m. Monday dramas, and with good reason: "Castle" and "Hawaii Five-0" both average in the 12 million-viewer range and rank among the Top 50 shows among adults 18-49. But while they're both solid, neither one is so dominant that NBC's new drama "Revolution" can't carve out a place for itself. »

London Short Film Festival
The new year's festival season starts here, and so does the revolution. Short film is often regarded as a stepping stone to features, and there's plenty of that potential here, even a few big names (Michael Fassbender in Goldfish). But it's also a potentially radical art form in itself, and an admirably inclusive one. So here you'll find documentaries selected by Occupy London; showcases of queer cinema; black and Asian stories; feminist porn; found film; experimental shorts; special guests; parties; a film from Jake and Dinos Chapman (The Organ Grinder's Monkey, with Rhys Ifans); and a music doc with a live improvised score on homemade instruments. Something for everyone, then. There's even an evening of films about sad, lonely men (including Mark Gatiss, Matthew Holness and Roger Allam).
