Wong Kar-wai Sets Feature Film Return With Gucci Murder Drama For Annapurna Pictures

16 November 2016 1:28 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Wong Kar-wai often takes three-to-four-year breaks in between films, so fans have been particularly anxious as of late for updates on a new feature given that it’s been three years since “The Grandmaster” opened to strong reviews and two Oscar nominations. The director has kept things relatively quiet in the interim, quietly announcing he’d be co-producing and co-directing an online drama series in China, but it looks like word is now out about the director’s anticipated return to moviemaking.

Film 2016 confirms new presenters

1 November 2016 10:52 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Nov 2, 2016

Film 2016 returns tonight with a new guest presenter approach. Full details lie within...

Tonight marks the return to our screens of the BBC’s one-time flagship film programme, Film 2016. And following the announcement at the end of the summer that Claudia Winkleman was standing down as co-host of the show, the BBC has finally announced her replacement.

Or replacements.

For the BBC has opted to go with a rotation of guest presenters for the new series, who in turn will accompany the returning resident critic Danny Leigh. There’s precedence for this in film programmes, I should note. Following the death of Gene Siskel, the late Roger Ebert continued to present a television film review programme with guest presenters for a while after. And that was deemed quite successful, if not quite - inevitably - up to majesty of seeing the original duo together.

Film 2016: Claudia Winkleman quits the show

4 September 2016 10:30 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Sep 5, 2016

Film 2016 will need a new presenter when it returns later this year, as Claudia Winkleman confirms her departure.

The BBC’s second most important film programme is on the hunt for a new lead presenter, with the news that Claudia Winkleman has quit as host of Film 2016.

Winkleman, who took over from Jonathan Ross in 2010, told the BBC that “at this time of year I juggle all kinds of things for TV and radio and the show simply deserves someone who can give it their all”. She is about to start co-hosting the latest run of Strictly Come Dancing on BBC One, in addition to her radio commitments.

The search is then on for a new host for Film 2016, which in turn will presumably determine whether Danny Leigh stays on as co-presenter. Speculation will no doubt turn back in the direction of Mark Kermode, »

Film 2016 | Kinoteka

Electronic music in film is key at this event, and if your knowledge of the subject extends little beyond that Daft Punk cameo in Tron: Legacy, it’s a chance to brush up on a history that goes right back to the mid-1930s. Sunday brunch screenings this month include key examples, such as Bride Of Frankenstein and Hitchcock classics Spellbound and The Birds (next month: John Carpenter), and theremin queen Lydia Kavina gives a concert – performing her music for Tim Burton movies such as Mars Attacks! – and introduction to the instrument at St George’s Bristol. Other highlights include a screening of Suede’s new film Night Thoughts accompanied by a Q&A, maverick composer and one-time Pink Floyd collaborator Ron Geesin in conversation, 20s Ukrainian silent film Arsenal with a live score, and a new Frank Zappa concert film.

SXSW 2016: Joe Swanberg Gets Honest About Making a Living in Indie Film

14 March 2016 3:08 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Joe Swanberg’s keynote today at SXSW was not unlike one of his movies: Unscripted, personally revealing and brutally honest. As Swanberg worked his way chronologically through his career, he kept pointing out how he wasn’t some trailblazer, but rather that his career had just intersected with tremendous advances in technology that changed how films were made and distributed. The reality, however, is that Swanberg has consistently been at the forefront of experimenting with how to be an uncompromised filmmaker, while still carving out a career and living for himself.   Using examples from his career, the director provided plenty of filmmaking principles and advice with the many aspiring Dyi filmmakers in the audience.Read More: SXSW Film 2016 Honors the Past While Facing an Exciting, Gaudy and Uncertain Future "We Need To Share Information""If we just talked to each other we’d fuck shit up," explained Swanberg.

Pablo Larraín's latest release, The Club, has been the recipient of a variety of awards including the Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize, Best Film at Fantastic Fest, Chile's official Academy Award submission for Best Foreign Language Film 2016. Diving into the secretive world of religious exile, Larraín investigates the shrouded lives of 4 men with existence-shattering pasts, whose futures are both stifled and protected by the Catholic Church.

These four priests, along with their care-taker, Hermana Mónica, live in seclusion in the small seaside town of La Boca, Chile, where they spend their days acting out a slew of both sacrilegious and holy activities. The laws of their outcast prevents most interaction with any of the townspeople, redirecting the men’s affection to training and betting on their beloved greyhound, Rayo.

The fathers, abandoned by the church, receive a newcomer to the house, a fellow priest who brings with him »
