First Look At Christopher Abbott In Josh Mond’s ‘James White’ & Kickstarter Campaign Underway

11 April 2014 4:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We’ve always liked to support the smaller projects and Josh Mond’s James White needs you to finish what they’ve started, and you can help via Kickstarter to get the post-production, editing, sounds design/mixing, and securing music rights side of the film completed!

We’re bringing this one to your attention for a couple of reasons. It’s not just because the team at Borderline Films already have an intelligent and powerful project history but mainly because we believe in these guys and the films they’re making…and want you to be a part of something unique.

Unconscious Uncoupling; Magnet Ties Knot with Leigh Janiak’s Honeymoon

27 March 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Despite SXSW not be the wheeling and dealing epicentre that Sundance is in terms of theatrical pick-ups, we can still expect to see a flurry of post fest deals from 2014′s SXSW line-up. Deadline reports that the oft buyer Magnolia Pictures is adding more to their Magnet slate with a genre item purchase — first time helmer Leigh Janiak sees her Honeymoon (not to be confused Jan Hřebejk’s 2013 film) move from fest premieres at SXSW to Tribeca to an eventual theatrically release later this year.

Gist: Co-written by Phil Graziadei and Janiak, young newlyweds Paul (Harry Treadaway) and Bea (Rose Leslie) travel to remote lake country for their honeymoon where the promise of private romance awaits them. Shortly after arriving, Paul finds Bea wandering and disoriented in the middle of the night. As she becomes more distant and her behavior increasingly peculiar, Paul begins to suspect something more sinister than »

Lena Dunham on Woody Allen: He nauseates me

18 March 2014 7:36 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

When Lena Dunham’s first movie, Tiny Furniture, came out, many critics made favorable comparisons to Woody Allen’s films. But maybe there was something deeper to the fact that the film’s hipster-doofus jerk (Alex Karpovsky) reads Woody Allen’s book, Without Feathers. Turns out, Dunham hadn’t been a fan of Allen’s work for some time, and after Dylan Farrow’s explosive open-letter outlining allegations of sexual abuse at the hands of her stepfather, Dunham has been extremely outspoken on the matter, especially on Twitter. Now, she tells Marc Maron on his Wtf podcast that she’s »

Exclusive: Director Leigh Janiak Talks Honeymoon

14 March 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Director Leigh Janiak of the much talked about SXSW Midnighter Honeymoon (review) was cool enough speak to us about her little film with big ideas and why Gareth EdwardsMonsters might be the reason that the film exists at all.

Honeymoon will also be playing during the Tribeca Film Fest next month so you have a chance to catch it there if you missed down in Austin, Texas.

DC: Do you like being a part of the Midnighters slate at a festival? Do you think it highlights the film more, and do you mind it premiering so late at night?

Lj: No, I love it; I think it’s actually great. The movie isn’t a typical horror movie, but it’s definitely genre so I’m thrilled to be included with the Midnighters. I’m just really excited.

DC: Just to separate you from the pack a little bit »

‘Fort Tilden’ Directors on the Rise of Hipster Films: The Lena Dunham Effect

13 March 2014 5:44 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

If one's searching for the responsible for the rise of the so-called millennial hipster filmmaker, then blame Lena Dunham. When her film, “Tiny Furniture,” won the award for Best Narrative Feature at SXSW in 2010, it sparked a genre of filmmaking that lead to “Fort Tilden” recently winning SXSW's Best Feature trophy — and with it, firmly establishing that the genre has taken root with audiences. From directors Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers, “Tilden” centers on two self-absorbed Brooklyn twentysomething girls, Harper (Bridey Elliot) and Allie (Clare McNulty), who decide to bike to a remote beach in the Rockaways. In doing so, »

Lena Dunham Contemplates Giving Up Acting

13 March 2014 9:09 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

At 27 years old, Lena Dunham still has a long, bright future ahead of her, but she's certainly accomplished quite a bit already. Her feature "Tiny Furniture" brought her to the attention of Hollywood and landed on The Criterion Collection (to the hand-wringing consternation of certain segments of pocket protector cinephiles), and her HBO show "Girls" continues to anchor the network's Sunday night, with the third season winding down and a fourth already ordered. And despite Dunham's fearlessness in the front of the camera, she's already contemplating staying behind the lens and calling the shots. Speaking with Glamour magazine, the actress revealed that she's uncertain about continuing to play the roles she writes. "I don't know if I'm going to want to act anymore," she said. "I'm always relieved on the days I don't have to. I'd rather give parts to other women than be the woman having the parts." And »

Lena Dunham May Quit Acting

13 March 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

From her HBO series “Girls” to her feature “Tiny Furniture,” Lena Dunham’s works feature no shortage of the woman herself as the star, but the multi-hyphenate may put acting in the backseat soon.

Dunham told Glamour for her upcoming cover issue of the magazine, which comes out March 18, that she’d rather the spotlight be on other women.

“I don’t know if I’m going to want to act anymore,” she said. “I’m always relieved on the days I don’t have to. I’d rather give parts to other women than be the woman having the parts.”

The 27-year-old Golden Globe winner created, writes, directs and stars in HBO’s “Girls,” which is currently in season three.

Dunham has also been busy recently with other endeavors, including hosting the most recent “Saturday Night Live” and speaking at SXSW, where she said she’s trying to change »

13 Big Name Filmmakers Who Also Write Comics

12 March 2014 2:49 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Comics are a tough racket to break into. Writers and artists slave away day and night, trying to perfect their craft by working on free, underviewed webcomics or self-publishing books that they might make a tenner profit off if they’re lucky when they’re not trying to convince editors and publishers that they’ve got the goods required to create for them.

So it must be more than a little frustrating when a writer who’s worked in a completely different field – say, movies or television – strolls along and decides that they’d like to have a crack at making a funnybook or two, too. And just because they’ve had a couple of quirky  indie movies made or happened to create a cult TV show or two, the publishers get starts in their eyes and give them the keys to the kingdom in the hopes that putting the »

SXSW Fest Wrap & Competition Award Winners

11 March 2014 8:57 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Austin's South By Southwest Film Festival is enriched by taking place each March alongside the Interactive conference, which offered back-to-back keynotes from Julian Assange and Edward Snowden.  Thus SXSW brings together two worlds that are usually far apart, Silicon Valley and Hollywood. This year especially, the Film Fest drew big crowds to its keynote speaker and panels, from Lena Dunham--who broke out with her second film to play the fest, "Tiny Furniture," which was followed by unveiling the first three episodes of "Girls" before the HBO series hit the zeitgeist--to "Joe" star  Nic Cage, who surprised everyone with his thoughtfulness. At a film panel, Cinetic Media's John Sloss begged for transparency on VOD numbers, which is long overdue, while producer Dana Brunetti ("Captain Phillips") railed against celebrity crowdfunding. Yes, "Veronica Mars" played well to the faithful. Meanwhile VOD distributors Magnolia, IFC and TWC's RADiUS were »

SXSW Awards Winners: ‘Fort Tilden,’ Bp Oil Spill Doc Score Top Honors (Complete List)

11 March 2014 7:54 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

“Fort Tilden,” a movie about hipster girls who take an expedition into “Deep Brooklyn,” won the grand jury award for Best Narrative Feature at the South by Southwest Film Festival Tuesday night. “Fort Tilden” competed against seven other films for the prize, which was handed out at a ceremony in Austin hosted by comedian Jerrod Carmichael. Self-obsessed young professionals in New York appear in several movies at this year's festival, perhaps a reflection of the success Lena Dunham, whose “Girls” depicts that world, has had since bringing “Tiny Furniture” to Austin in 2010. “Animals” writer David Dastmalchian won the “Courage in. »

Criterion Collection: George Washington | Blu-ray Review

11 March 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

As director David Gordon Green returns to the mind frame of independent cinema with a duo of films like Prince Avalanche and (especially) the soon to be theatrically released Joe, Criterion revamps his 2000 feature debut, George Washington at a time that seems ripe for reexamination both in Gordon’s own eclectic filmography and the American independent film scene at large. Insomuch as snagging a slot in the Criterion lineup with a debut film, Green’s title is a definitive standout (Lena Dunham’s 2010 feature Tiny Furniture also comes immediately to mind), and after almost a decade and half later, we can look back and see a brilliant filmmaker already working a magic rarely seen in the independent realm both then and (even more notably) now.

There is an omnipresent nostalgia to be felt while watching George Washington, whether it be your first viewing or one of several rewatches, as it concerns a group of kids, »

Lena Dunham Delivers Keynote At SXSW; Advocates For Stronger Female Roles In Hollywood

10 March 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Lena Dunham made a call for less typecasting in Hollywood for female roles and spoke about the evolution of her career during her Keynote speech at SXSW on Monday, March 10.

Fresh off her first time hosting Saturday Night Live, Dunham appeared in Austin to give a speech about her career. Dunham, 27, is currently one of the most visible and successful women in television. She writes and stars in her own hit show, HBO’s Girls, and advocates for women’s rights in her spare time.

Dunham arguably got her big break at SXSW when her debut film, Tiny Furniture, won the narrative prize at the 2010 SXSW, catapulting her into Hollywood and leading to her partnership with HBO. During her keynote speech, Dunham acknowledged her close ties to the festival.

“To me, this place represents magic, hope, beginnings, adulthood, freedom, triumph and tacos,” Dunham began.

Lena Dunham’s Strong SXSW Keynote Indirectly Highlights Competition’s Homogeny

10 March 2014 1:21 PM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Shortly after 11 o’clock this morning, Lena Dunham offered the Austin Convention Center’s Vimeo Theater a holistic timeline of her rise from hostess-who-lived-with-her-parents to independent cinema’s most overanalyzed success story. Fresh from SNL and somehow running on fumes with the utmost effervescence (she claimed to have written her speech at 3 am), Dunham recounted her days as an aspiring filmmaker with candor and self-effacement. Even if, on the set of Tiny Furniture precursor “Delusional Downtown Divas,” she was “struggling how to turn on the camera,” it’s clear her preternatural drive has always been intact. A tireless maker and unabashed experimenter, Dunham consistently stressed the importance of […] »

SXSW: Lena Dunham on Hollywood Sexism, Ratings and the Tweet She Regrets

10 March 2014 10:37 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Austin – “Something has to change and I’m trying” — that’s the message “Girls” creator Lena Dunham delivered with her keynote at SXSW on Monday, addressing the differences in opportunities for male and female actors in Hollywood as well as her distaste for Republicans.

Adam Driver, a co-star of her HBO series, has been offered parts playing “villains, Lotharios and nerds all in one year,” she said of Hollywood’s gender imbalance, whereas “Girls” stars Zosia Mamet and Allison Williams have yet to see parts that offer them a chance “to stretch their legs,” Dunham said.

Dunham added that she does not care for ratings (though she admits HBO wishes she did), Deadline Hollywood and Republicans (“I’m sure there are some good ones. I just haven’t met them yet”).

Her 45-minute keynote largely ran though her life, growing up in New York with two artist parents (a painter »

The 15 Most Anticipated Films Of The 2014 SXSW Film Festival

6 March 2014 10:01 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

No rest for the wicked: we've barely gotten over our Oscar-night hangovers, and yet already the next major event of the movie calendar is upon us. After a few quiet weeks on the film festival circuit, Friday sees the kick off of Austin's all-encompassing, multi-platform mega-party SXSW Film Festival, which kicks off this evening with Jon Favreau's "Chef" and runs until March 15th. The fest has become increasingly important over the last few years thanks to some high-profile premieres ("Bridesmaids," "Cabin In The Woods"), and key discoveries ("The Puffy Chair," "Tiny Furniture," "Attack The Block," "Monsters," "Short Term 12"), and we're hopeful that this year'll be no different—just from glimpsing the line-up, you can see plenty of promise. If you're heading Austin-wards, or just if you're keen to keep your finger on the pulse from afar, we've picked out some of the films we're most looking forward to: take a look below, »

SXSW Film Festival Embraces the Weird

4 March 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Richard Linklater’s 1991 film “Slacker” put Austin, Texas, on the indie film map. And while that movie’s motley crew of wayward dreamers, cafe philosophers and conspiracy theorists may have little to do with today’s South by Southwest Film Conference and Festival, the spirit of “Slacker” and its director still resonates.

“Rick really did set the tone,” says SXSW film honcho Janet Pierson. “He’s a nice guy, he’s a great filmmaker and he’s always working.”

Indeed, no one can say SXSW is slacking off either. Last year, the event reached record levels of attendance (upward of 75,000) and premiered several breakout movies, including “Drinking Buddies” and “Short Term 12.” It’s just the stakes in Austin aren’t as high as in Park City, and the way of life, as Pierson says, “is down several notches from New York or L.A.”

Lena Dunham Writing for Archie Comics Is a Great Sign For the Brand’s Movie and TV Future

3 March 2014 3:00 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Back when I was a humongous fan of Archie comics, there was an attempt to make the brand more hip, maybe even attract more male readers (I’m sure I was a real rarity in being a boy who preferred Riverdale to Gotham City). The publisher introduced a bunch of sci-fi-themed series like Jughead’s Time Police, Dilton’s Strange Science, Explorers of the Unknown and the future-set Archie 3000. They were more cheesy than cool and didn’t last very long. More than 20 years later, Archie has abandoned the Comics Code Authority (they were the last holdout) and are even doing stuff aimed at more mature readers, such as the popular, audience-expanding zombie-based book Afterlife of Archie. Now the New York Times reports that the princess of hipness, Lena Dunham, will be writing a four-issue Archie miniseries to release in 2015. Dunham is the latest in a not-so-new trend of comic book publishers bringing on movie and TV »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2010

26 February 2014 2:57 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 27 Feb 2014 - 05:54

Our series of lists devoted to underappreciated films brings us to the year 2010, and another 25 overlooked gems...

By 2010, Hollywood’s obsession with 3D movies was in full swing. James Cameron’s Avatar may have given audiences a taste of what the cutting edge of stereoscope could look like, but it has to be said that the movies ushered into cinemas in its wake were a decidedly mixed bunch. Toy Story 3's 3D was extraordinarily effective, yet Clash Of The Titans looked like a blurry mess. How To Train Your Dragon came to life in its flying sequences, but the less said about the horribly murky Last Airbender, the better.

Unless we’re mistaken, none of the movies on this list were shot or released in 3D, and few of them did particularly stellar business. A few got a certain amount of critical acclaim, »
