25 Best Horror Films of 2014 (Part 1)

8 December 2014 7:32 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We here at Sound On Sight believe horror transcends explicit gore, jump scares or supernatural content, which is why you’ll soon notice our list ranges from independent art films to psychological thrillers to parodies, satire and more. Surprisingly, vampires lead the pack this year, along with found footage flicks, but there are a few comedies, one remake and even some strange love stories as well.

Every other year, I’ve published the list of best horror films based solely on my picks, but this year, Sound On Sight editor Justine Smith and Sos contributor Felix Vasquez Jr. also participated. Since we couldn’t agree with what is the best horror film of 2014, we decided to publish the list in alphabetical order. That said, here are our individual picks:

Ricky D-  Under the Skin

Justine Smith – Cybernatural 

Felix Vasquez Jr. - The Babadook


This list is in alphabetical order

Stockholm Festival: Q&A With ‘Sophie Bell’ Helmer Adolfsson

6 November 2014 8:20 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Last year Stockholm world preemed Sofia Norlin’s “Broken Hill Blues,” the first film to come out of the festival’s fund for emerging female directors. “Broken Hill Blues” went on to the Berlin and Tribeca festival, while cinematographer Petrus Sjovik earned a Guldbagge Award, Sweden’s highest accolade.

The Stockholm Film Festival continues to screen female filmmakers. This year 60 out of 200 directors at the festival are women. The second feature to come from the fund is Amanda Adolfsson’s debut, “Young Sophie Bell,” above, premiering at the fest on Nov. 12.

The films come out of a successful program launched in 2011, when the Stockholm Film Festival introduced the Feature Film Award for female directors, with telecoms giant Telia as the main financier, and also with support from the Swedish Film Institute, Europa Sound & Vision and Dagsljus and with NonStop Entertainment as a distribution partner. In 2012 Swedish Television joined as a supporter. »

Ben Gibson Goes to Australia

15 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

Ben Gibson, the departing Director of the London Film School, has been appointed to a new senior role at Aftrs, the Australian Film Television & Radio School, as Director, Degree Programs. He will start work in Sydney in September.

Gibson will play a key leadership role in ensuring the successful delivery and development of a new three-year Aftrs Bachelor of Arts (Screen) degree and Aftrs Screen and Screen Business Masters degrees, which are being restructured and relaunched for 2015.

Ben is eminently qualified for this pivotal new role at Aftrs, and I’m thrilled that he could be persuaded to bring his considerable skills, experience and academic rigor to Australia. His 14 years as Director of the very successful London Film School are notable for his work in building up the school’s reputation in the UK and abroad and expanding and accrediting its prestigious postgraduate degrees. Ben has also been a very successful and original independent producer and production executive, and has previously worked in distribution and exhibition, so he comes with a deep knowledge of the international screen industry at all levels,” said Sandra Levy, CEO of the Aftrs.

Prior to joining the London Film School in 2001, Gibson worked as a film distributor and independent producer, and as Head of Production at the British Film Institute from 1988 to 1998. His production and executive production credits include Terence Davies' " The Long Day Closes," Derek Jarman's "Wittgenstein," John Maybury's "Love is the Devil," Carine Adler's "Under the Skin"and Jasmin Dizdar's "Beautiful People," as well as 20 other low budget features and many shorts by UK directors including Patrick Keiller, Gurinder Chadha, Lynne Ramsay, Richard Kwietniowski and Andrew Kotting. As a partner in distributors The Other Cinema/Metro Pictures he acquired and promoted films by Pedro Almodovar, Chris Marker, Chantal Akerman and Jean-Luc Godard as well as opening the West End’s Metro Cinema in 1986. He has also been a theater director, a repertory film programmer and a film critic and journalist. He leaves Lfs at the end of July.

Ben Gibson said: “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to contribute to Sandra Levy’s vision of Aftrs as a complete screen school -- and to get the chance to work in the Australian film industry, one I’ve hugely admired and followed -- so far from a great distance. Aftrs offers a special combination of good things: self-confidence, an extraordinary heritage, great creative ambition, exceptional resources, a wide educational scope and a central mission in a dynamic and productive screen industry. It’s rightly considered to be one of the great film schools of the world. I can’t wait to join the team and get started there.”

Gibson’s final year at Lfs has been attended by great creative success. The school won 35 festival prizes and mentions in 2013-14, including a BAFTA nomination. Ms Levy pointed out that this year’s Palme d'Or for Best Short Film at the Cannes Film Festival was won by Leidi, the Lfs graduation film of Simón Mesa Soto. Also at Cannes, amongst seven graduates featured in the 2014 selection, "The Salt of the Earth," co-directed by Lfs graduate Juliano Ribeiro Salgado with Wim Wenders, was awarded the Un Certain Regard’s Special Jury Prize.

Director Mike Leigh, Chair of Governors at the London Film School, in announcing Ben’s departure earlier this year, said: “Ben Gibson has led Lfs from strength to strength over his fourteen years of outstanding service, and we will be sad to see him go.”

Aftrs is Australia’s national screen arts and broadcasting school and has been named as one of the Top 20 film schools in the world by industry journal, The Hollywood Reporter. As an elite specialist institution, Aftrs provides excellence in education through its practice based model, and aspires to deliver a dynamic educational offering that prepares the most talented and creative students – novice, experienced, fully fledged professional specialists – to be platform agnostic, creative and resilient in an industry subject to constant changes in knowledge and technology. The new BA Screen is a 3-year program offering a strong base in the understanding of story and screen history alongside a comprehensive introduction to the skills of screen production. »

Sundance: A24 Acquires J.C. Chandor’s A Most Violent Year with Oscar Isaac & Jessica Chastain

22 January 2014 3:25 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Coming off the back of his acclaimed sophomore feature, All Is Lost, J.C. Chandor is about to go back behind the camera for his anticipated third film, A Most Violent Year.

Out in Park City, the film market has been heating up in recent days, and one of the biggest companies to make their mark so far has been A24.

The distribution/production company has been very much on the rise since their debut last year with Roman Coppola’s A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III, with releases including Ginger & Rosa, Spring Breakers, and most recently The Spectacular Now.

So it should come as no surprise then that they are keen to cement their status, announcing that they have acquired U.S. rights to Chandor’s A Most Violent Year, led by Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain.

The acquisition is their third at the festival, having already »

Gibson stands down from Lfs

14 January 2014 1:35 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Mike Leigh praises London Film School director Ben Gibson for “outstanding” service.

London Film School director Ben Gibson has stepped down from the post he held for 14 years.

The Lfs board is now looking to appoint a new director who will likely assume the role from next autumn.

Gibson will remain active at the school until the transition to the new director.

Gibson has been instrumental in raising the profile of the Lfs in the UK and abroad and has also overseen the school’s long-gestating transition from Covent Garden to the Barbican.

In December 2013, the school announced its first major funding towards the transfer, with a move planned for 2016, the same year the school celebrates its 60th birthday.

Gibson told ScreenDaily: “It has been an engrossing pleasure to lead this dynamic and important institution since 2000. Lfs is a wonderful place to work and learn, and the privilege of teaching and supporting talented, collaborative and clear-eyed »

A24 Sets 2014 Dates For Scarlett Johannson's 'Under The Skin,' Jake Gyllenhaal's 'Enemy' & Locke' With Tom Hardy

3 January 2014 8:34 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While many modern cinephiles are going gaga for adventurous producers like Annapurna Pictures ("Zero Dark Thirty," "The Master," "Her," and "American Hustle," to name a few), there's also another game in town that's quietly building up an impressive roster. Barely a year old, indie distribution company A24 has made quite a name for itself in the last year for acquiring domestic rights to auteur-driven indie fare such as Sally Potter's "Ginger & Rosa," Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers," Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring," and James Ponsoldt's "The Spectacular Now" (some of our favorite films of the past year). 2014 is shaping up to be another banner year for the company that seems to be taking over the niche Film District filled when they first began (they've now been folded into Focus Features). So far, the company has five films set for 2014 and three of them just received release dates. »

The Spectacular Next: Ten Movies to See in 2014

31 December 2013 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

As awards season draws nearer and best-of-the-year lists keep rolling in, there's only one thing left to do: get excited about what comes next. Here are 10 films you won't want to miss in 2014.

1. Adieu au language (Directed by Jean-Luc Godard)

Jean-Luc Godard, master of the French Nouvelle Vague, proved with 2010's extraordinary Film Socialisme that he remains among the most accomplished filmmakers working. His latest effort, the 3-D experiment Adieu au language (Goodbye to Language), looks no less ambitious or exciting, as the three-minute trailer released over the summer quite compellingly suggests.

2. Under the Skin (Directed by Jonathan Glazer)
