WikiLeaks founder to judge films at the 21st Raindance Film Festival; 2013 line-up unveiled.Scroll down for full line-up of films

Julian Assange has joined the jury of the 21st Raindance Film Festival (Sept 25 - Oct 6), a London-based event that celebrates independent film in the UK and around the world.

The appointment is a controversial one. The Australian editor-in-chief and founder of WikiLeaks took refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy in London in June 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he is wanted for questioning about sexual assault allegations.

It is understood that he fears Sweden would extradite him to the Us, where he believes he is wanted in relation to WikiLeaks’ disclosure of a significant amount of classified Us military and diplomatic documents.

Commenting on Assange’s appointment, Raindance founder Elliot Grove said: “Every year Raindance invites interesting people to join our jury. In the past we have had musicians like Mick Jones, Marky Ramone and [link »

Coldwater | Review - SXSW Film 2013

24 March 2013 9:17 PM, PDT | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

Brad (P.J. Boudousqué) is a troubled teenager who is abducted from his home in the middle of the night — but, don’t worry, his mother (Raquel Gardner) has given her consent. He is driven in a van to a reform facility located in the middle of the wilderness. At least 20 miles of harsh terrain away from the nearest town, Brad and his cohorts are completely cut off from society, one of many tactics used by the Coldwater facility to break the spirits of the inmates. Colonel Frank Reichert (James C. Burns) runs a strict military-like operation, with no room for sympathy or compassion. Fear of punishment is the main motivator in forcing the inmates to conform with society’s rules; but, because of blind trust, the Colonel is unaware of just how horrendous the punishments rendered by the Coldwater counselors can be. While the Colonel wrestles with his own personal demons, »

SXSW 2013 Review: ‘Coldwater’ Is a Strongly Acted Cautionary Tale Weakened By a Leaky Script

16 March 2013 9:48 PM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Imagine waking up in the middle of the night to strangers who pull you from your bed, handcuff you and put a cloth sack over your head. The last thing you hear as they toss you screaming into the back of a van is your mother saying “I love you.” This is how we meet Brad Lunders (P.J. Boudousqué). He’s a teenager mired in a life of drug dealing and other criminal acts, and after a recent incident that resulted in a death his mother has chosen an extreme option intended to keep Brad out of jail. He’s been shipped off to a “residential treatment program for troubled youths,” but while that sounds like a professional and responsibly run place, it just may be anything but. Coldwater is a beautifully acted and shot drama about troubled kids forced to grow up quickly by even more troubled adults. It’s an engaging eye-opener that moves from »

SXSW 2013 Review: Coldwater Is Lukewarm

14 March 2013 3:00 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Shedding light on important issues through the power of narrative filmmaking can be a tricky proposition. The very nature of fictional storytelling can sometimes make the issues brought to the forefront seem less worthy of inspection (ie: "it's just a movie"). At the same time, calibrating a film's emotional impact to a pitch perfect balance, somewhere between ineffective and sensational, is a razor-thin tightrope walk. Coldwater, directed by Vincent Grashaw and written by Mark Penney, unfortunately stumbles at the starting gate and never fully recovers.    The film begins with teenager Brad Lunders (P.J. Boudousqué) being snatched from his bedroom in the middle of the night by unknown assailants. Within a few minutes, it's made clear that these strange men have come from a juvenile reform...

SXSW 2013: 'Bellflower' Producer Grashaw Talks Directorial Debut 'Coldwater'

9 March 2013 4:32 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Vincent Grashaw produced, edited and acted in SXSW's 2010 hit "Bellflower," written, directed and starring his fellow Coatwolf Productions pal Evan Glodell. Now he's back in Austin with "Coldwater," his feature directorial debut, which he also co-wrote. The testosterone-fueled drama centers on a teenage boy (Ryan Gosling look-a-like Pj Boudousque) sent to a privately run reform boot camp for misbehaving youth. Things go downhill fast--and with a lot of violence. Grashaw uses an unknown cast to weave the tale, bringing attention to real-life cases that inspired the story of guidance gone wrong. Sophia Savage: How did making 'Coldwater' compare with 'Bellflower'? Vincent Grashaw: 'Bellflower' and 'Coldwater' were two different beasts.  'Bellflower' was an example of getting a film made at all costs, with zero money.  I threw myself into something that took almost three years of my life to complete. It forced us to think out of the box… »

SXSW: Star Ken Marino and director Jacob Vaughan talk about their 'butt monster' comedy-horror film 'Milo' -- Exclusive

Ken Marino (Burning Love, Party Down) stars in the SXSW-screening horror-comedy Milo as a man with a homicidal monster living in his butt.

That’s right: In. His. Butt.

Milo came out of professional jealousy,” recalls writer-director Jacob Vaughan. “I was talking to a friend of mine who ended up being the cowriter, Benjamin Hayes. We were complaining about an acquaintance who had gotten money to make a horror film. We had read the script and we didn’t think it was very good. I started talking about early Cronenberg movies and how his horror was so much more interesting because it was about something. »

SXSW: Spielberg, Lucas, and Scorsese pay tribute in trailer for 'Milius' doc -- Video

8 March 2013 8:36 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

It is a nice coincidence that the trailer for a new documentary about filmmaker John Milius should arrive as the Big Lebowski is celebrating its 15th anniversary, given the writer-director was one of the inspirations for John Goodman’s war-obsessed gun nut Walter Sobchak. But the clip for Milius also serves as a reminder that that piece of trivia is one of the less interesting things about this larger-than-life character who brought us Big Wednesday, Conan the Barbarian, Dillinger, and Red Dawn, and who also cowrote Apocalypse Now and had a hand in penning the U.S.S. Indianapolis monologue in Jaws. »

SXSW 2013: Vincent Grashaw ('Bellflower') steps behind the camera for 'Coldwater' -- Exclusive Poster

7 March 2013 8:07 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

Vincent Grashaw made a gasoline-scented splash by both producing and appearing in 2011′s indie drama Bellflower, a twisted tale of Mad Max fandom and curdled love. Now Grashaw is making his directorial debut with the SXSW-screening Coldwater, which details a teenage boy’s struggle for survival at a juvenile reform facility in the wilderness.

“I played on a tournament hockey team growing up,” Grashaw told EW last year. “I remember one day our goalie wasn’t at practice and we all wondered what had happened. Turned out his parents sent him to a private juvenile program in the middle of nowhere. »
