Last year, a Jenga tall order of 4,057 features and 8,161 shorts were submitted. Now let’s think about those numbers for a second.

Twenty years ago, Terry Zwigoff’s Crumb claimed the Grand Jury Prize Documentary award, Living in Oblivion‘s Tom Dicillo was honored with the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award, and Edward Burns’ micro-budgeted The Brothers McMullen (there is a read-worthy, lively, eleventh hour account on how it was submitted to the fest in Ted Hope’s “Hope »

Excerpt: Ted Hope Memoir Relives Good Machine Days With Schamus And Linde

6 September 2014 4:54 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Ted Hope partnered with James Schamus and David Linde in Good Machine, the prolific director-centric indie company behind Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Y Tu Mama Tambien, In The Bedroom, Brokeback Mountain, Happiness, The Ice Storm and The Brothers McMullen. In this excerpt from his new book Hope For Film (Soft Skull Press), Hope writes about that seminal moment when the indie business changed and larger companies looked to swallow the prestige film factories. The principals all went in exceptional directions after Good Machine was swallowed by Universal Pictures back in 2000: Schamus ran Focus Features with Linde before the latter became Universal Pictures co-chairman; Hope formed This Is That with future taste making producers Anne Carey and Anthony Bregman. Here, Hope, who is currently CEO of film streaming platform Fandor, describes the feeding frenzy for Good Machine, and how the principals tried to better capitalize a company while navigating the collision between indies and studios. »

My First Time in Variety: Connie Britton Looks Back to 1995

13 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

These days, four-time Emmy nominee Connie Britton is singing her country heart out on “Nashville,” which just wrapped its second season on ABC. But back in the early ’90s — before she spun her comedic magic on “Spin City” or became half of one of TV’s most beloved couples on “Friday Night Lights” — Britton was just another struggling actress in New York, when she happened to spot an ad in Backstage for what would become “The Brothers McMullen.”

How did the audition for “Brothers McMullen” go?

I was out of town visiting my sister that weekend, and really debated (going back in for the audition) because it meant I was going to have to get on an earlier train out of Washington, D.C., to get back. I showed up in some office building where Eddie Burns was holding auditions. I read two different roles; the one I ended up »

29 May 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

This story first appeared in the June 6 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. For more than two decades, New York-based producer Anthony Bregman has steered some of the most iconic independent films of his generation, from The Brothers McMullen to The Ice Storm to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. As many of his contemporaries from the early-1990s indie scene are slowing or holding steady, Bregman, 47, is hitting his stride. He is producing more ambitious movies like Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher, which generated rave reviews at the Cannes Film Festival, and moving into TV with frequent collaborator Charlie Kaufman

Happy Birthday Sarah McLachlan! Here Are Her Ten Greatest Songs

28 January 2014 6:55 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Sarah McLachlan was one of the most important musical artists of the 1990′s, and helped usher in a new generation of female singer-songwriters, who were introspective, unapologetic, and vital to the otherwise arid pop landscape of that decade.

Speaking of vital, in 1997 Sarah founded the groundbreaking Lilith Fair, one of the biggest music festivals of the 90′s, which brought together some of the most influential and celebrated female musicians of the era.

Unfortunately, her recording career has been … sporadic. Since 2000, she’s only released two studio albums of new material, but that will change in May when her new album Shine On is released.

Today is Sarah’s 46th birthday, so until that new album is released, let’s take a look back at some classic songs from her discography.

10. Angel

Year: 1998

Hot 100 Peak: #4

Perhaps her most well known song, it was written about the Smashing Pumpkins keyboard player Jonathan Melvoin, »

Indie Spotlight Review: Nobody Can Cool

by Heather Wixson

Nobody Can Cool is the rather impressive directorial debut from up-and-coming filmmaking duo Dpyx, Marcy Boyle and Rachel Holzman, who crafted a blisteringly taut and thoughtful indie crime thriller with a palpable sense of tension from start to finish. A gritty and engaging tale of deceit, violence and desperation, Nobody Can Cool is anchored by a breakout performance by Nick Principe (best known from his work in the Laid to Rest series, Madison County and »
