We've seen horror anthologies in the form of V/H/S and The ABCs of Death, but now the terror is headed overseas in a new series of interconnected horror stories called Fear Paris. The producers behind Paranormal Activity and Insidious have rounded up directors Joe Dante (Gremlins), Xavier Gens (Hitman) and Timo Vuorensola (Iron Sky) for a collection of stories within the realm of fantasy, horror and sci-fi, all set in "the dark underbelly of the City of Lights." The project doesn't start shooting until the summer or fall, but an announcement teaser is available. It's rough with lots of green screen, but looks dark. Here's the announcement teaser for the horror anthology Fear Paris via SlashFilm: The official press release for Fear Paris says: Helmed by directors Joe Dante (Gremlins, The Hole), Xavier Gens (Hitman), and Timo Vuorensola (Iron Sky), the genre bending and connected stories will present »

After movies like V/H/S and The ABCs of Death, I’m all for horror anthologies abiding by a particular theme. There’s something inherently fun about such a cornucopia of treats, as different directors populate one single film with so many distinctive styles and traits – as long as the segments set the stage for such fun.

Newly announced, Fear Paris will join the likes of Joe Dante (Gremlins), Xavier Gens (Hitman/Frontier(s)), and Timo Vuorensola (Iron Sky), as they explore the horrific underworld of France’s iconic capital city. Here’s the full press release, accompanied by a tonal teaser below:

In the new documentary Tim’s Vermeer, Texas-based inventor and non-painter Tim Jenison attempts to prove that seventeenth century artist Dutch Johannes Vermeer used an optical device to craft his masterpieces by adopting that technique to painstakingly recreate Vermeer’s The Music Lesson. If that sounds like a snooze on paper, the film is anything but, partly thanks to Penn Jillette’s enthusiastic narration, and his magic-partner Teller’s assured direction. but mostly because of the possibility Jenison might actually drive himself insane attempting to complete his Herculean task. (EW’s Owen Gleiberman recently described the movie as “exquisitely fun” in his “A”-grade review. »

At Rotterdam’s CineMart, industry experts advised filmmakers to start early and make marketing and PR an integral part of any production.
Moderated by Screen International editor Wendy Mitchell, a panel of experts shared tips and strategies on how to cut through the noise for festival and cinema releases and grow new audiences as well.
They started off by entreating filmmakers to secure the most basic of things – stills and other press kit materials.
Laurin Dietrich of Wolf Consultants, which will be handling press for films including Snowpiecer at Berlin this year, said: “It’s shocking how bad the stuff is sometimes.
“You need to think before you start shooting - what are the iconic scenes and key moments from my film that I need. You don’t need an incredibly expensive photographer nor do you need one for the whole shoot - just maybe ten days when the cast is all together that you can’t get »
