13 films you can still see at the London Film Festival

12 October 2011 2:40 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The London Film Festival’s now in full swing, so Michael’s provided a handy guide to what you can still get to see over the next few days...

The 55th London Film Festival is now underway, boasting a programme that includes top-flight flicks like George Clooney’s The Ides Of March, Lynne Ramsey’s We Need To Talk About Kevin, and 360, directed by Fernando Meirelles. However, unless you’re a BFI member, a quick-off-the-mark cinephile, or an industry bigwig, it’s highly likely that you missed the small window of chance for getting tickets for these bigger films.

No need to worry, though, as many of the festival’s 300+ films haven’t yet sold out. Here are just a few notable or geek-friendly deep cuts that, at time of writing, still have tickets on sale.

Anonymous

Despite being one of the festival’s Gala films, two of Anonymous’ screenings still have spare seats going. »

Michel Ocelot Preparing Third Kirikou Feature Film

17 June 2011 12:52 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

French animator Michel Ocelot is returning to Africa. Ocelot first rose to international prominence with 1998's Kirikou And The Sorceress, a magical tale of a tiny little boy and a fearsome sorceress based on African folk legends. The film marked Ocelot as one of the world's true great masters of his form, status he has confirmed with later efforts such as Azur And Asmar - released in some territories as The Prince's Quest - this year's Berlin film festival selection Tales Of The Night and 2005 follow up effort Kirikou And The Wild Beasts. But it seems there are more stories remaining to be told about the little boy and Ocelot is preparing another now. Though plot details are scarce French production house Les »

‘Rio’ and ‘Hop’: Worlds Away

5 May 2011 3:09 PM, PDT | The Moving Arts Journal | See recent The Moving Arts Journal news »

The animated features Hop and Rio have a few things in common, aside from their one-word titles. An animal plays the lead role in each (‘E.B’ the rabbit in Hop and ‘Blu’ the parrot in Rio), and both films kick off with a prologue sequence featuring the animal as an adorably fluffy baby, then flash forward to the present when the animal is confronted with grown-up duties. Rio and Hop also share a familiar narrative device: the need to resolve the conflict between individual desire and social responsibility. In Hop, E.B. loves to play the drums, and would like to make it his career, but family tradition stands in the way: he is the Easter Bunny’s only heir, and his father is ready to retire. In Rio, Blu’s job is also related to family: as the last male of his kind, he is responsible for the survival of his species, »

New York African Film Festival Begins Today With An Impressive Lineup! Have You Bought Your Tickets Yet?

6 April 2011 8:17 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

The New York African Film Festival begins Today New Yorkers, and the 2011 lineup is an impressive one!

Of note, several films that have been touted on this website (old and new) are scheduled to screen at this year’s festival, including, Andrew Dosunmu’s feature film directorial debut and Sundance 2011 entry, Restless City, in what I believe will be the film’s New York city premiere! I saw the film in January, and found it enchanting. You can read my full review of it Here.

Also, Congolese filmmaker Djo Tunda Wa Munga’s explosive Viva Riva!, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last fall, and swept the African Movie Academy Awards; a film that’s being referred to as “Congolese Avant-Garde.” I saw it a couple of weeks ago, and dug it! Read me review Here.

New Yorkers will also get to see Besouro (a Shadow And Act Film »

The New York African Film Festival has announced its 2011 lineup, and it’s an impressive one! I’m excited, and hopefully you will be too, especially if you live in New York.

Of note, several films that have been touted on this website (old and new) are scheduled to screen at this year’s festival, including, Andrew Dosunmu’s feature film directorial debut and Sundance 2011 entry, Restless City, in what I believe will be the film’s New York city premiere!

Also, Congolese filmmaker Djo Tunda Wa Munga’s Viva Riva!, which screened at the Toronto Film Festival last fall, and Fespaco last month, where it won some awards; a film that’s being referred to as “Congolese Avant-Garde.” I haven’t seen it, but I’m really looking forward to doing so. »

Berlinale Pt. 2: Red Carpet, Movies To Watch For

20 February 2011 10:41 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

One of the best things about A-list festivals is that you get red carpet ogling inbetween all the big ticket movies. Oh sure, you get that at medium sized festivals too but the celebrities and movies are more regional and less Klieg lit. So who was at Berlinale? Hailee Steinfeld was despite also showing up at Us events and London events in the same week (I didn't include her in the lineup because she's been featured so much lately). That girl has probably logged more air miles in the past month than you have all year!

Here's a small sampling of stars.

 

From left to right: Dominic Cooper had a new film at the festival called The Devil's Double (more on that in a bit). He must weigh 120 lbs. He is always wearing the slimmest most form fitting suits that money can buy and constant cardio workouts can provide; Diane Kruger, »

Berlin 2011 Review: Les Contes De La Nuit (Tales of the Night)

13 February 2011 4:20 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

One of three 3D films in the main section of the 61st Berlin Film Festival, Michel Ocelot’s animated Les Contes de la Nuit (Tales of the Night) is a charming collection of six short allegorical folk tales revolving around ideas of morality and love. The stories are told at night-time by an eccentric trio who inhabit an otherwise empty (but oddly high-tech) theatre, as they use Mr. Ben-like transformation powers to put on elaborate shows – apparently seen only by a gormless owl.

The 3D, whilst by no means essential to the experience, works and gives Ocelot’s distinctive two dimensional look a pop-up book feel that separates the stylised, silhouetted characters from the gaudy backgrounds. The folkloric and multi-cultural nature of the tales is reminiscent of his previous films, especially Azur et Asmar with which this shares a certain educational vibe. As always the simplicity »

Berlin 2011: True Grit Opens 61st Festival – Coens, Bridges, Brolin, Steinfeld speak!

10 February 2011 5:21 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Have you seen Sofia Coppola’s Golden Lion winning drama Somewhere? Well if you have you’ll remember the excruciatingly awkward yet fairly funny sequence in which Stephen Dorff’s movie star Johnny Marco sits through a press conference dominated by stupid and pretentious questions (“Who is Jonny Marco?” being the one that stands out as the most reaching and self-important). If you’ve seen that then you’ll have some idea what being in the room for the press conference of True Grit was like at the start of the 61st Berlin Film Festival.

Both Coen brothers, Joel and Ethan, were in attendance and were joined by three of the film’s stars, Josh Brolin along with Academy Award nominees Jeff Bridges and Hailee Steinfeld. But it was clear from the outset that the Coens (Joel in particular) shared a certain disinterest and even hostility for the whole obligatory event with Marco. »
