Game of Thrones: Of Course You Know Who Plays Archmaester Marwyn!

17 July 2017 1:55 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Game of Thrones added a new face to its already very large cast of characters with Sunday's season seven premiere. At the Citadel, Samwell Tarly is training to be a maester, learning at the hand of Archmaester Marwyn, played by award-winning star of stage and screen Jim Broadbent. Broadbent got his start over 40 years ago, but his first big role came in the 1985 sci-fi classic Brazil, where he played plastic surgeon to Katherine Helmond's vain Mrs. Ida Lowry in the fictional dystopian urban setting. The 68-year-old actor would go on to appear in some of the biggest films of the 1990s, including Enchanted April, The Crying Game, and Bullets Over Broadway, before his critically acclaimed turn as W.S. Gilbert (of the famed musical theater pair Gilbert and Sullivan) in Topsy-Turvy, a role that earned Broadbent a BAFTA nomination. On the heels of Topsy-Turvy, Broadbent had a big year in »

Karlovy Vary Film Festival Honors Talent Working in Front of and Behind the Camera

23 June 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Casey Affleck

President’s Award

An Academy Award-winner for his role in “Manchester by the Sea” (2016), Affleck will receive his kudo prior to a screening of “A Ghost Story,” in which he stars. Affleck, along with helmer-writer David Lowery, will introduce the film. Affleck starred in Lowery’s debut film “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints” (2013) and recently completed production on Lowery’s “The Old Man and the Gun.”

Like his older brother, multi-hyphenate Ben, Casey Affleck has a parallel career as a writer-producer-director. He is in post on his second feature as a helmer-writer, “The Light of My Life,” in which he also stars.

James Newton Howard

Crystal Globe

American composer and songwriter Howard will conduct the Czech National Symphony Orchestra in a performance of his music for the film “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” in front of Hotel Thermal on June 30, during the fest’s opening. Howard is currently preparing for his first live concert tour, a celebration of career highlights, with music, spoken word and video, that will visit 20 European cities.

Howard has composed music for more than 120 films, including Academy Award-nominated scores for “Defiance,” “Michael Clayton,” “The Village,” “The Fugitive,” “The Prince of Tides” and “My Best Friend’s Wedding” — not to mention Oscar-nominated songs for “Junior” and “One Fine Day.”

In addition to his contributions to film and television music, the Emmy- and Grammy-winning Howard has also composed concert pieces for the Pacific Symphony.

Paul Laverty

Crystal Globe

Laverty wrote the scripts for 12 features and two short films directed by Ken Loach, beginning with “Carla’s Song” (1996). Their most recent collaboration, “I, Daniel Blake” (2016), won the Palme d’Or at Cannes.

Laverty wrote the screenplay for Loach’s first Palme d’Or winner, “The Wind That Shakes the Barley” (2006). His credits with Loach include “My Name Is Joe,” (1998), a Cannes lead actor-winner for Peter Mullan and Cannes screenplay winner “Sweet Sixteen” (2002).

He also writes screenplays for his partner, the Spanish director and actress Icíar Bollaín.

Ken Loach

Crystal Globe

An activist as well as one of Britain’s most celebrated directors, Loach worked briefly in theater before starting as a director for BBC television in the early 1960s. There, he helmed ground-breaking dramas such as “Up the Junction” and “Cathy Come Home.” The impact of the latter led to a change in Britain’s homeless laws. Acclaimed early features such as “Poor Cow” (1967) and “Kes” (1969) brought his trademarks of social realism and compassion to the big screen.

Even though Loach’s 50-plus-year career includes a dark period when he couldn’t get a project off the ground and he directed commercials to support his family, he has been extraordinarily prolific. Undoubtedly, this is due in part to his on-going collaboration with producer Rebecca O’Brien and long-term partnerships with screenwriters including Barry Hines, Jim Allen and perhaps most fruitfully, Paul Laverty. Loach is also known for introducing exciting new acting talents.

Jeremy Renner

President’s Award

Actor, producer, musician and two-time Oscar-nominee Renner will receive his kudo at the fest’s closing gala on July 8. Renner will also introduce the crime thriller “Wind River,” directed by Taylor Sheridan.

Known for his intensity and ability to fully embody the characters he portrays, Renner received early critical acclaim as a serial killer in “Dahmer” (2002). He later established himself through roles in action and war movies, garnering an Oscar nomination for lead actor in Kathryn Bigelow’s war tale “The Hurt Locker” (2008). A supporting actor nom followed two years later for Ben Affleck’s bank heist drama “The Town” (2010).

Renner’s extensive filmography balances big-budget blockbusters such as “The Avengers” and “Mission: Impossible” series with more complex roles in “American Hustle” and “Arrival.”

In 2012, he formed the production company The Combine, with partner Don Handfield, to create, develop and produce high-quality, character-driven content for mainstream audiences.

Uma Thurman

President’s Award

The sensual, statuesque American actress and producer Uma Thurman will receive her honor on June 30, during the fest’s opening night. An Oscar-nominee for Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction” (1994), Thurman’s memorable acting career is notable for her collaboration with iconic helmers.

Thurman was only a teenager when she made an impact in Stephen Frears’ “Dangerous Liaisons” (1988) and Terry Gilliam’s surreal “The Adventures of Baron Munchausen” (1988). However, the part of Mia Wallace in Tarantino’s sensational “Pulp Fiction” marked a turning point, garnering her numerous awards and nominations. Another successful Tarantino collaboration followed nearly a decade later with the cult double-header: “Kill Bill: Vols. 1 and 2” (2003, 2004). She received two Golden Globe nominations for her role as The Bride.

Thurman ultimately nabbed a Golden Globe for for her role in Mira Nair’s made-for-tv feature “Hysterical Blindness” (2002). She produced “The Accidental Husband” (2008) and the forthcoming “Girl Soldier.”

Václav Vorlíček

President’s Award

Renowned for his work for younger audiences, director-writer Vorlíček, 87, will receive an honor for his artistic contribution to Czech film.

Vorlíček teamed with writer and director Miloš Macourek, to form an original creative partnership responsible for a distinctive chapter in the development of Czech film. Their poetic vision, in which real life comes up against elements of fantasy, remains unique to this day.

Prime examples of Vorlíček and Macourek’s work include the “comic book” comedy “Who Wants to Kill Jessie?” (1966); the sci-fi comedy “You Are a Widow, Sir!” (1970).

Another comedy that employs fairytale motifs in contemporary Prague titled “How to Drown Dr. Mracek, the Lawyer” (1974); the TV series “Arabela” (1979-80); and “Rumburak” (1985).

Vorlíček is also known for his fairytale films, especially the comedy “The Girl on the Broomstick” (1971) and “Three Wishes for Cinderella” (1973), now a perennially popular Christmas classic on Czech television.

PBS’ Independent Lens Announces Season 16 Slate (Exclusive)

22 June 2017 11:05 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump’s proposed federal budget calls for the eventual elimination of government funding for public TV, Independent Lens isn’t going anywhere… at least not for the next 12 months.

The long-running documentary series that airs on PBS will launch its 16th season on Nov. 6 with John Scheinfeld’s “Chasing Trane.” About John Coltrane, the film premiered at the Telluride Film Festival last September followed by a screening at Toronto Intl. Film Festival. Pic includes interviews with Wynton Marsalis, former President Bill Clinton, and Common, with Coltrane’s own words spoken by Denzel Washington. Abramorama »

The Netflix juggernaut continues to grow

12 June 2017 8:43 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Netflix seems unstoppable in Australia, with more than 2.7 million homes subscribed to the service at the end of March.—.a penetration rate of 29 per cent, according to a new survey.

Roy Morgan Research (Rmr) estimates Netflix posted a 20 per cent gain in subscribers in the first quarter, reaching nearly 7.1 million people aged 14-plus, up from 5.8 million in the previous quarter.

Those findings may be conservative, as some pay-tv executives believe Netflix has close to 3 million subs and that its universe will continue to grow despite the relaunch and rebranding of Foxtel.s streaming service Foxtel Now.

Rmr.s study looked only at Netflix and did not include other Svod players such as Stan (which has more than 600,000 paying customers), Amazon Prime, Hayu and NBA Season Pass.

Nor did it include Fetch TV, Australia.s largest Ott platform, which also offers Netflix and Stan and has more than 500,000 subs.

Screen industry ponders where two inquiries might – or should – lead

8 June 2017 3:35 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

With two parallel yet overlapping inquiries under way into the Australian screen sector, what can the industry realistically hope will be the outcome?

Perhaps a requirement on Netflix, Stan and other streaming services to screen a specified amount of local content? .The long-sought raising of the location and TV producer offsets, despite the entrenched opposition of Treasury?.

Could a plan emerge to replace the local content quotas with a more flexible regime which does not threaten the current levels of children.s, drama and documentary production?

Or might both inquiries amount to a waste of time and effort whose reports will gather dust on a shelf, the fate of the 2012 Convergence Review commissioned by the Labor government, as some industry pessimists fear?.

Communications and Arts Minister Mitch Fifield has said the content review being jointly conducted by the Department of Communications and the Arts, Screen Australia and Acma will aim »

4 Great British Political Dramas (To Keep You Entertained on Election Night)

8 June 2017 2:09 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Graeme Robertson with 4 great British political dramas to keep you entertained on election night…

Election fever has gripped the British people once more, with the country going to the polls to decide who will walk into Number 10.

Will it be “strong and stable” leadership of the incumbent Conservative leader and u-turn master Theresa May and her brilliant plan for Brexit, even if she still won’t really tell us the plan apart from “Brexit means Brexit”? Or will it be the very left-wing humourless dour faced haunted scarecrow that is Labour’s divisive leader Jeremy Corbyn and his plan to renationalise everything including the very air we breathe?

Well regardless of who will win, you can be guaranteed it’s going to be a long night of inconclusive exit polls, boring analysis from pundits, politicians arguing about whose party has more unlikable arseholes in their ranks and a near »

Exclusive Interview: Director Sanjeev Sirpal and composer Bryce Jacobs discuss their collaboration on Random Tropical Paradise

16 May 2017 7:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As La La Land reminded us this year, every movie needs to have a good score or theme. Without it, a movie just doesn’t feel complete. Prime examples being Rocky without Bill Conti’s motivating ‘Gonna Fly Now’ theme or Hans Zimmer’s whole Inception score for that matter. They would just be completely different films. Continuing the conversation of importance a score has on a film in today’s market, we decided to speak with writer/director Sanjeev Sirpal and composer Bryce Jacobs and discuss their collaboration on the upcoming film, Random Tropical Paradise which is being released in theaters & VOD June 9th and stars Bryan Greenberg (The Mindy Project), Brooks Wheelan (Saturday Night Live), Spencer Grammer, Jessica Lowe and Joe Pantoliano.

Tribeca Film Festival: 9 Buzziest Titles From Jenny Slate to Jeffrey Dahmer

19 April 2017 3:08 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In its 16th year, Tribeca has become the Duane Reade of film festivals. There’s something for everyone, but you can’t always find the right aisle. As the Manhattan gathering has expanded into TV and virtual reality, with panels featuring the likes of Barbra Streisand and Kobe Bryant, it’s still most closely associated with a sprawling lineup of indie films. Here are nine titles that, at least on paper, look the most promising.

(1) “Flower

Zoey Deutch, resident “it girl” and Lea Thompson offspring, stars as a sexually promiscuous teenager who takes her psychologically damaged stepbrother under her wing with disastrous consequences. The pitch-black drama could be a hot sales title at the market given Deutch’s rabid social media following and a supporting cast that includes Adam Scott and Kathryn Hahn. Max Winkler, son of Henry “The Fonz” Winkler, directs.

(2) “The Trip to Spain
