Egyptian security forces arrested filmmaker Jehane Noujaim while covering the Cairo political protests in Tahrir Square and detained her in Tora prison for 36 hours. Noujaim, who co-directed the documentary Startup.com, about the rise and fall of a new media company, and directed Control Room, about Al-Jazeera, was released yesterday and she gave an extensive interview to NBC News detailing the circumstances behind her arrest. “My charage was throwing Molotov cocktails and destroying public property,” she said. “If I throw a rock I’d hit the back of the head of the protester in front of me. That claim was so ridiculous and yet I was in prison for 36 hours because of it.” »

10 years ago, a game arrived on the market that would go on to tie-up the sci-fi Fps genre for the next few years before Halo: Reach brought an end of sorts with a new beginning, before Halo 4 launches a brand new trilogy next year.

Looking forward to that date, we now know what the list of achievements will look like. All 44 of them.

Week Two At The Edit Center

28 September 2011 7:21 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

It is the first day of my second week at The Edit Center and we are no longer paired off with partners. Left alone with my computer, I cannot remember how to do anything. Alan Oxman (whose editing credits include Control Room, Happiness and Welcome to the Dollhouse) has joined us, as our teacher. We are to start working on a feature film currently going into post-production. The film is called Happy Sad, written by Ken Urban and directed by Rodney Evans. I am delighted to learn that my friend Maria Dizzia is acting in it. We have all read the script over the weekend, and are each given a hard-drive with footage that will comprise one scene of the film. We are to start editing our scene together. Every one begins working like busy bees, while I stare in despair at my keyboard.

Oxman is a man of enormous patience. »

David Carr And Andrew Rossi Make Headlines With "Page One: Inside The New York Times"

13 June 2011 9:45 AM, PDT | ifc.com | See recent IFC news »

In the two weeks since I conducted this interview, The New York Times' executive editor Bill Keller announced that he would be stepping down from his position to become a full-time writer once more, paving the way for managing editor Jill Abramson to make history as the first woman to lead the venerable news organization in their 160-year history. In some ways, the fact that the news came after the Times' media columnist David Carr and director Andrew Rossi did press for the documentary "Page One: Inside The New York Times," but before the film was released in theaters, felt like a cruel cosmic joke, the ultimate indictment of holding onto any bit of information in an era where speed is everything.

But as much as Rossi himself would've surely liked to have included a scene to capture that milestone in his film (he was able to attach it in »

The Top Ten Paul Giamatti Films!

11 May 2011 1:41 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Win Win is released in cinemas 20th May with Paul Giamatti taking the leading role as Mike Flaherty -a discouraged attorney and wrestling coach, who stumbles upon a star wrestler through unusual circumstances.

Giamatti started his career as a supporting actor in many commercially successful films before he shot to fame and was casted in more prominent lead roles.

We’ve decided to celebrate the theatrical release of Win Win by showcasing Giamatti’s appearances in his Top 10 Films.

The Truman Show

The Truman Show (1998)

Here we have one of Paul’s earlier appearances where he had a small part playing the Control Room Director. Even though it was a small part his role was vital in supervising the overnight shift and watching Truman sleep, but things start to go wrong as he loses track of the star in the reality show.

Sundance doc: Stop the press? 'Page One' explores journalism's last stand

26 January 2011 1:40 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Sundance has a history of turning unlikely true-life topics into crowd-thrilling documentaries: the tuxedoed ice-dwellers of March of the Penguins, Al Gore’s climate-change lecture in An Inconvenient Truth, the massive faults of the U.S. education system in last year’s Waiting for Superman.

This year, one unexpected gotta-see doc turned out to be Page One: A Year Inside The New York Times, which explores upheaval throughout the entire news business through the Times media reporters who are covering the shake-up — as they’re being shook up themselves.

“If you write about media long enough, eventually you type your way to your own doorstep, »
