Black review – Romeo and Juliet go to gangland Brussels

18 August 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Martha Canga Antonio and Aboubakr Bensaihi are impressive as young Afro-Belgian lovers from rival gangs, but the hip-hop video aesthetic is obnoxious

Set in Brussels, this modern-day Romeo and Juliet story unfolds the tale of a doomed romance between Marwan (Aboubakr Bensaihi) and Mavela (Martha Canga Antonio), young lovers whose families come from north and sub-Saharan Africa, respectively, and who belong to rival gangs.

There’s a lot to admire, from the honesty about the brutality of gang culture, its pungent sense of place and the vitality of its young cast. With her breathy Betty Boop voice and impressive dramatic range, Canga Antonio represents a particular discovery here. I long to see her cast in a female buddy movie with Karidja Touré, the star of Girlhood, perhaps in a Francophone urban remake of Thelma and Louise.

“You’ve always been crazy, this is just the first chance you’ve had to express yourself.”

Did Real Housewives of New Jersey's Siggy Flicker Just Have the Best Introduction in Franchise History?

11 July 2016 12:13 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Teresa Giudice's big return home may have been the main attraction during last night's season seven premiere of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but we'd be remiss if we didn't discuss new Housewife Siggy Flicker's first scene on the series. You guys—it was straight bonkers. Meeting Jacqueline Laurita and fellow newbie Dolores Catania at a speakeasy for drinks, Siggy walked in with a floral scarf wrapped around her head like she straight out of Thelma and Louise. After banging on a window for help entering the restaurant (turned out she didn't know which book on the nearby shelf was secretly her way in), she revealed what she was hiding under her strange accessory: The bandages from a »

If you only watch one comedy this weekend, let it be...

7 July 2016 4:08 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Director Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows) is busy in production on Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok. If you're not already familiar with his brand of comedy you can get a taste of what to expect from Thor 3 with Hunt for the Wilderpeople, which is in theaters now and expanding. The hilarious adventure follows a boy (breakout star Julian Dennison) and his foster uncle (Sam Neill) who become the subject of a manhunt after they get stranded in the New Zealand wilderness. This is one of, if not the, funniest films of the year to date and will probably land on many a top ten list when things shake out in December. Thor: Ragnarok Directer Determined To Make Thunder God More Than Just Abs One part buddy comedy, one part coming-of-age, and all around balls-to-the-wall adventure, "The whole style is lifted from the '70s and '80s," Waititi »

Best of frenemies: why do men make movies about women in meltdown?

7 July 2016 8:30 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Queen of Earth and The Neon Demon are the latest in a long line of films about conflict and hysteria in female relationships

Men in movies aren’t friends; they’re buddies. They’re chalk-and-cheese odd couples. They’re partners in crime. They’re Holmes and Watson, Butch and Sundance, Bill and Ted, Riggs and Murtaugh, Maverick and Iceman. Either that or they’re members of a team, bound together by a common purpose: beating the enemy, winning the match, robbing the bank. If they have differences, they settle them with a punch-up and move on. If you’re looking for a more nuanced movie take on platonic male relationships, good luck. The closest you’ll get is a comedy bromance such as The Hangover, which makes sure to compensate with an excess of “We’re not gay” jokes. It’s just not manly to take too close an interest in such matters, »

The London Indian Film Festival brings cinematic diversity to London and Birmingham: 14-24 July

14 June 2016 7:39 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Challenging stereotypes of India and South Asia, and wrestling with some very hard issues the 7th Bagri Foundation London Indian Film Festival returns this Summer.

The Director of the Bagri Foundation London Indian Film Festival, Cary Rajinder Sawhney states,”We aim to showcase films that entertain but challenge and make one think about the many social issues happening in India today, and that includes many positive changes including the fact that so many emerging Indian women filmmakers who are producing world-class films that are giving their male counterparts a serious run for their money.”

The diverse programme of brand new features, documentaries and shorts includes seven films directed by power-packed women filmmakers that give the Bechdel Test a run for its money, including the Thelma and Louise-esque opening night buddy movie, Parched, set in the desert villages of India’s Gujarat (female director Leena Yadav and Producer and Bollywood star Ajay Devgn, is expected). Double Oscar® winner Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, introduces her punch in the guts, documentary, A Girl In The River – The Price of Forgiveness.

With a strong Lgbtq+ following, the festival proudly hosts its first Transgender movie based on an empowering true story – I am Not He…She, at BFI Southbank, supported by Mac Cosmetics and Sun Mark Ltd, amongst others. Bangalore Director Bs Lingadevaru, is expected.

Reflecting the linguistic diversity of UK’s South Asian communities, the carefully curated programme will include 15 major languages, including films from Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nepal and Sri Lanka. All films are English subtitled.

This celebration of Indian regional diversity includes a very rare on-stage Q&A at BFI Southbank with one of South India’s greatest ever superstars – Kamal Haasan, who moved from child actor to Tamil cinema star, to produce, write and direct some of India’s most acclaimed features, including many Bollywood hits. He is adored by millions of fans, worldwide.

The closing night gala, is the world premiere of the incredibly moving and intense Toba Tek Singh, which focuses on patients locked in a Punjabi mental health hospital during the Partition (legendary director Ketan Mehta, is expected).

Sri Lankan breakout filmmakers Kalpana & Vindana Ariyawansa explore the taboo subject of obsessive compulsive disorder (Ocd) in a very personal family drama Dirty, Yellow, Darkness, while at the Ica, Director Jayaraj from Kerala, presents the Berlinale Crystal-Bear winner, Ottaal (The Trap), a heart-wrenching drama, based on the roots of child slave labour.

On a lighter note the festival also celebrates two icons of cinema with on-stage interviews with Satyajit Ray’s favourite actress Sharmila Tagore from Kolkata and the only Indian filmmaker to truly cross from Bollywood to Hollywood – Shekhar Kapur, who will discuss his plans for Elizabeth 3. Let’s hope that Cate Blanchett continues her reign in this expected sequel.

Also in the line-up is a special screening of the risque film Brahman Naman, directed by India’s leading indie director Q, the hilarious coming-of-age comedy is exclusive to Netflix. The Mumbai music industry focused Jugni, shows that love and a damn-good Punjabi song, can conquer even the toughest hearts (female director, Shefali Bhushan, is expected).

As well as synchronous screenings in London and Birmingham from 14-24 July, the Bagri Foundation London Indian Film Festival goes live on digital, with the festival showing a selection of films on BFI Player into the Autumn.

Festival Patron Tony Matharu, who is also our founding sponsor, from Grange Hotels, continues to support with full fervour, and the festival welcomes back supporters including title sponsor, the Bagri Foundation, who share our passion for South Asian arts and culture. The British Film Institute and Cineworld Cinemas have supported Liff since year one. The festival enjoys on-going essential support from major sponsor, Sun Mark Ltd.

Title Sponsor Alka Bagri of the Bagri Foundation says, “We are delighted to support such an incredible festival which reveals the richness of South Asian culture and offers a wonderful platform for emerging talent. This year’s programme epitomises the diversity and dynamism of South Asian cinema, and through films, debates and panel discussions, we will explore topical issues such as gender, identity, mental health and equality. We look forward to being joined by two acclaimed figures of Indian cinema: Kamal Haasan and Shekhar Kapur who will take us on their cinematic journey”.

Liff presents the prestigious annual Satyajit Ray Short Film Competition, in association with the Bagri Foundation, with a prize of £1,000 to the winning film. The short film programme screens at the Ica on Wednesday 20th July and the winning short will be announced at the closing night gala, on 21st July, at BFI Southbank.

Geena Davis Producing Documentary on Hollywood’s Gender Inequality (Exclusive)

8 June 2016 7:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Geena Davis and CreativeChaos vmg are launching a partnership to produce an untitled feature documentary on gender disparity in Hollywood.

“I’ve been encouraged by my peers speaking out on gender disparity in recent years, but we still are not seeing the actual number change,” Davis told Variety. “There’s been no real improvement in the number of female roles since 1946 and there’s still a dearth of female directors.”

Tom Donahue, director of the HBO feature documentary “Casting By,” will helm the film.

The story will be told through the eyes of experts and researchers using data provided by the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, as well as first-person accounts of high-profile actors, executives and artists in the field. Its goal is to take a systemic look at unconscious bias and provide a roadmap for solutions to act as a catalyst for change.

Gloria Sanchez Productions Offers Female-Centric Filmmaking

27 May 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Twelve years ago, Jessica Elbaum was Will Ferrell’s assistant, a post she admits is already “the best job ever.” Her first day on the job was on the set of reshoots for the first “Anchorman” film. Nine years later, on the set of “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” of which she was an executive producer, she approached the Gary Sanchez team with the idea of a female-centric counterpart, Gloria Sanchez Prods.

“From the start, they liked the idea,” Elbaum recalls. “They said, ‘let’s do it.’ Never once did they doubt it.”

“Jess is an awesome producer and we thought it was a great idea,” concurs Ferrell. But more than that, says Gary Sanchez topper Adam McKay: “It’s selfishly good business. Women have been taking over comedy for the past 10 years.  Jessica was establishing all these great relationships with female directors and writers, it just made sense. »

Mark Ruffalo: Next 'Thor' flick an 'an intergalactic buddy road movie'

24 May 2016 1:12 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you ever wanted to see Thelma and Louise but with a giant green monster and the one-time heir to the throne of Asgard, it looks like you’ll have your chance. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, The Hulkster himself, Mark Ruffalo, explained that his upcoming movie Thor: Ragnarok will be “an intergalactic buddy road movie with Banner and Thor.” Knowing the complicated relationship between the two, this should be more than entertaining. Ruffalo spilled some additional dirt about this ever expanding world of Marvel movies and what we can expect from Hulk. "I think it will be smashing. You'll see a lot more Hulk,” Ruffalo said. "The Hulk gets Hulk-ier. The Hulk hulks out. Hulk-ier and bigger." The film, which will be directed by Taika Waititi (who offers some details of the movie to HitFix earlier this year), will star Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba and Cate Blanchett. »

Thelma & Louise, Pt 2: The Venetian Blindside

25th Anniversary Five-Part Mini Series Event 

When we left our heroines in Pt 1 of our 25th anniversary lookback at Thelma & Louise, they were fleeing the scene of their (first) crime but Louise needed a cup of coffee and to collect herself. Anne Marie & Margaret, our own superheroine duo in Los Angeles were grappling with the surprise killing of a would be rapist. Was it rage and pride that motivated Louise to shoot after she had already saved Thelma? It certainly provoked audiences but was there any other way to play the film's themes?

Louise is trying to plot their next move when we return to them, just before they jump back in their '66 Thunderbird - Editor

Cannes Film Review: ‘Divines’

19 May 2016 3:55 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In her aces debut feature “Divines”, Houda Benyamina has what ought to be a career-making film on her hands. With a story developed by its director and screenwriters Romain Compingt and Malik Rumeau for three years, the hard work has paid off, resulting in a funny, often suspenseful and always emotionally involving drama about Dounia (Oulaya Amamra), a tough but naive teenager who sees getting rich or dying trying as her most viable option. Her slightly more cautious friend Maimouna (newcomer Déborah Lukumuena) is less immediately willing to embrace thug life, but easily swept along for the ride. The obvious comparison artistically and in terms of commercial prospects is to Celine Sciamma’s “Girlhood,” which, like “Divines,” was unveiled in Directors’ Fortnight at Cannes.

Divines” depends a great deal on the quality of its lead actor. Sight unseen, the knowledge that the director has cast her sister in the lead »

At Cannes, The Year of the Women

18 May 2016 4:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis reunited at this year’s Cannes Film Festival some twenty five years after “Thelma & Louise” sparked a feminist firestorm.

The film was a box office success, inspired countless think pieces and fierce debate, and scored Oscar nominations for both actresses. But Sarandon lamented that its impact was ephemeral.

“Well I don’t think the studios have fallen off their horse and had some kind of epiphany about women in film,” she said. “After Thelma and Louise, they predicted there would be so many films starring women. But it didn’t happen.”

The numbers suggest that Sarandon is right. Indeed, Hollywood’s glass ceiling remains stubbornly in place even as box office hits such as “The Hunger Games” and “Fifty Shades of Grey” explode old myths that audiences won’t turn up to see  films with women above the title. Last year, women comprised 22% of leads »

Women in film "Wikipedia" planned

15 May 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Database curated by Swedish Film Institute, which currently includes 700 film-makers, will expand globally.

The Swedish Film Institute continues its pioneering work to achieve gender equality in film, including the launch of a new website that will be “a kind of Wikipedia” for female filmmakers. At, there are already 700 filmmakers listed, from cinema’s start in 1895 to today. The list will be expanded globally.

“Anyone who says there are no good women [to hire], they will be proven wrong,” said Sfi CEO Anna Serner at the ‘50/50 by 2020’Seminar here in Cannes.

The Sfi hit a 50-50 gender split for its funded projects in 2014, but they are not resting on their laurels. “We will keep on counting behind the camera and in front of the camera,” she said. “We will make sure by getting knowledge and facts that women do make films reaching audiences and making money. Women should get bigger budgets now.” Sfi will also »
