“Poetry Sometimes Obscures the Narrative Arc”: Editor Keiko Deguchi on We The Animals

Though Jeremiah Zagar has been directing shorts and documentaries since 2004, We The Animals marks his first feature narrative film. Adapted from Justin Torres’s novel, Animals gives a name to the source text’s unnamed narrator: Jonah (Evan Rosado), a young boy growing up in ’80s upstate NYC against the background of his parents’ unstable marriage and growing awareness of his own queerness. Editor Keiko Deguchi spoke to Filmmaker about her work on the film, which split the Next Innovator Award (chosen by a single juror, RuPaul) with Jordana Spiro’s Night Comes On.

The Indie TV Dream: Here Are the Ambitions and Realities Facing Sundance’s First Full TV Section

Before Sundance fully embraced television, it was already making small screen dreams come true.

“Last year, our wildest dream coming into the Episodic Short Form program was to sell our web series to television, and that’s exactly what happened,” Josh Feldman and Shoshannah Stern said to IndieWire.

Feldman and Stern created a series called “The Chances” that premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. It’s returning to Sundance in 2018, but this time as a fully-fledged TV show with distribution, a full first season in the can, and an official release date — February 14, 2018.

“That web series was picked up from Sundance last year by Sundance Now, developed out from its short-form to a long-form of 22-minute episodes […] and they’ve already shot the first season,” Sundance programmer Charlie Sextro said in an interview with IndieWire. “So we’re showing that in our independent series, because it’s Sundance Now, but

New Ricky Gervais Comedy Special “Humanity” Gets Netflix Premiere Date

When it comes to comedy specials, Ricky Gervais only deals with, ya know, small-fry topics like Animals (2003), Politics (2004), Fame (2007), and Science (2009). His upcoming special, Humanity, looks to follow suit. First teased in 2013, the busy Gervais has finally found time to record his latest stand-up show at the Apollo Hammersmith in London, which will see its debut globally on Netflix on March 13th. Of his previous specials, Fame is (in my opinion) by far the best. It came at a time when Gervais was also collaborating on projects with Office co-creator Stephen Merchant

Sundance 2018 Indie Episodic Preview: The Most Anticipated TV Pilots and Premieres at This Year’s Festival

Sundance 2018 Indie Episodic Preview: The Most Anticipated TV Pilots and Premieres at This Year’s Festival
Don’t let the title fool you: The Sundance Film Festival has been featuring television programs for years, be it the slew of documentaries that end up on HBO, Showtime, and Netflix or pilots that earn a special showcase like “Animals.” did in 2015.

But 2018 is special. This year, Sundance is dedicating an entire section to episodic programming, including short-form series, docu-series, traditional pilots, and more experimental premieres. It’s all coming together under the Indie Episodic banner, and it’s all designed with one clear mission:

“There is no clear path to series if you’re trying to do it independently — if you’re going to try and shoot your own pilot, and then try and get picked up,” Sundance programmer Charlie Sextro told IndieWire. “There’s a clear way [in] making an independent film: It gets picked up at Sundance, and then it gets out to the world. It’s

‘Blade Runner 2049’: Where You’ve Seen Its Standout Supporting Cast Before

‘Blade Runner 2049’: Where You’ve Seen Its Standout Supporting Cast Before
The following article contains minor spoilers for “Blade Runner 2049.”

In addition to a pair of memorable performances from Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford, cinematographer Roger Deakins’ stunning visual work, and director Denis Villeneuve’s dystopian vision, “Blade Runner 2049” has one more element worthy of excitement: a supporting cast of new and rising stars. Many of them have already made their mark on indie cinema, like the perpetually working David Dastmalchian or the irreverent Carla Juri, while others will likely use Villeneuve’s sci-fi epic as a springboard for even bigger careers (like Ana de Armas, the film’s biggest find).

Teen Wolf Season 6 Episode 4 Review: Relics

  • TVfanatic
Hmm, so the Ghost Riders travel by lightning, you say? It's a shame we don't know a kitsune...

On Teen Wolf Season 6 Episode 4, Mason uncovered some decent intel on the Ghost Riders, but, of course, there are still a gazillion and one questions.

For instance, why are there all of a sudden like 20 Ghost Riders, and why can everyone see them now?

Seriously, by the end of the hour, Scott, Malia, and Chris can see the Ghost Riders. The newbies all saw them at the party, so the only "safe" people are Melissa, Lydia, Natalie, and Finstock. It is a little strange that a good bit of our main characters can see them now because this means that they all have a countdown clock to erasure.

It's a little hard to believe that everyone who has seen the Ghost Riders (aka the majority of the cast) will be taken, but if they aren't,

Martin Garrix Helps Get Fan To His Show In Amsterdam

With the commencement of Amsterdam Dance Event, Martin Garrix has been busy unleashing a steady stream of new releases. The producer promised to drop seven new tracks over seven days, and so far we’ve been treated to “Hold On And Believe,” “Spotless” with Jay Hardway, as well as “Wiee” and “Sun Is Never Going Down.” As if that weren’t enough to prove that the Dutch DJ loves his fans, Garrix just stepped up to the plate with another major giveaway.

A fan by the name of Chris McPhadden had purchased tickets to see Garrix perform during Ade, only to later realize he didn’t have the funds to purchase air fare to the major festival. He initially decided to give the tickets away for free, but ultimately opted to reach out on Twitter for help.

The fans’ plea on social media caught the attention of the “Animals” producer,

Toronto Film Review: ‘Werewolf’

Toronto Film Review: ‘Werewolf’
Ranging from 1971’s “Dusty and Sweets McGee” to Collin Schiffli’s more recent “Animals,” downbeat dramas about young addicts in love have been sufficiently numerous to constitute an entire subgenre, one complete with its own readily identifiable conventions and archetypes. For all her attempts at documentary-style verisimilitude, filmmaker Ashley McKenzie doesn’t really cover much new ground with “Werewolf,” her debut feature. Indeed, the familiarity and predictability of its scenario about co-dependency in the lower depths make the relatively short Canadian indie seem longer than it is. When they aren’t stealing glances at their watches, however, viewers may find themselves grudgingly admiring the affectless naturalism of the lead performances, and the borderline Bressonian austerity of McKenzie’s storytelling.

Nessa (Breagh) and Blaise (Andrew Gillis) are introduced as recovering addicts hovering very near rock bottom, living in a ramshackle trailer in the woods near a Nova Scotia town and existing

Thoughts I Had... Laura Linney in "Nocturnal Animals"

Chris here. We're pretty jazzed about Tom Ford's meta-noir Nocturnal Animals in these parts, even with (or because of) festival reactions are all over the map from negative to positive. Whether or not the film is a potential awards player, it did pick up the Grand Jury Prize in Venice and even the poor reviews call out Michael Shannon as a highlight. However, the buried lede in all of the conversation (and the just-launched trailer) is the buzzed about cameo by The Lovely Laura Linney, whose character shows up like this:

Praise the heavens, she's no longer a supportive wife trapped on a phone! And now she's letting her hair down up. Some takeaways:

‘Family Guy’ Won’t Do Any More ‘Star Wars’ Parodies, and Here’s Why

  • Indiewire
‘Family Guy’ Won’t Do Any More ‘Star Wars’ Parodies, and Here’s Why
Don’t expect to see any more “Star Wars” parodies from Fox’s animated hit “Family Guy.”

The show produced three “Star Wars” homages (2007’s “Blue Harvest,” 2009’s “Something, Something, Something Dark Side” and 2010’s “It’s a Trap!”) several years ago. But that was back before Disney acquired Lucasfilm and jumpstarted the franchise.

“The new regime is a little more difficult to deal with,” executive producer Alec Sulkin said. “Before we were just dealing with Lucasfilm. Seth [MacFarlane] had a good relationship with them. It’s not that Seth has a bad relationship with Disney, but they’re a bit more rigid.”

Executive producer Rich Appel said it was understandable, as “they’re a little more careful now that they’re rolling out new movies.”
