Mile High Horror Film Festival
Oct. 3-6, 2013
A lot of thought, hard work and dedication went into the Mile High Horror Film Festival this year. With over 60 quality feature films, shorts, and music videos from 13 different countries, the 4 day fest hosted by Alamo Draft House (allies to the independent film genre) had camp to vamp and everything in between.
The festival had a wealth of new and old industry blood, live performance artists (or free range zombies, whichever you prefer), and an intriguing assortment of vendors and artists. The enthusiastic attendees can never be accused of living in their parents basements, but one step better, underneath their parents basement…
Some real stand outs besides the critic and audience pick winners were: Fist of Jesus- A Mexican import exploring the theme that Lazarus was indeed the first zombie. Hell No- A hilarious take »
This marks the first time that Freeman and Keaton have worked together.
The film is directed by award-winning director Richard Loncraine (The Gathering Storm, My One and Only, Firewall, Wimbledon, Richard III), and is based on the acclaimed novel “Heroic Measures” by Jill Ciment, from a screenplay written by Charlie Peters (My One and Only, Krippendorf’s Tribe, Three Men and A Little Lady, Blame It On Rio).

Morgan Freeman and Diane Keaton have had long careers, both of them have won Oscars, and both of them are so popular and prolific that you'd have to assume they crossed paths at some point, right? Nope. The two will be filming their first movie together this year-- and even better, they'll be getting romantically involved to do it. Myriad Pictures announced the two will star in Richard Loncraine.s comedy Life Itself, and they.ll play a long-married couple, so they.re really going to get some screen time together in a plot that sounds more enjoyable than most of the feel-good projects that Keaton usually gets herself into. The film is Loncraine.s first since 2009.s My One and Only, and he.s reteaming with that film.s screenwriter Charlie Peters (3 Men and a Little Lady), who adapted it from the much-loved novel Heroic Measures by Jill Ciment. »

Whew. That title is a mouthful. I know you already know what I mean though, you golden fiends. This very impromptu post is brought to you by a recent Tribeca revival screening of Martin Scorsese's indelible King of Comedy (1983) and this Movie Line interview with Sandra Bernhard herself -- to whom I'm dedicating the list -- who couldn't make it but definitely helped make the movie what it is. My one and only back and forth conversation with Sandra -- over Twitter, the sometimes leveler -- involved how freaking robbed she was for an Oscar nomination for that movie. I couldn't believe I was talking to her but I was not the least bit in doubt that she'd agree with me.
