Emily S. Whitten: Sean Astin at The National Press Club

Actor and radio host Sean Astin applied to become a member of The National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on October 27 after speaking to a rapt audience of journalists and fans about his career and his political radio show, Vox Populi. Astin, most known to fans as Mikey in The Goonies, the title character in Rudy, and Samwise Gamgee in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, started Vox Populi in 2012. Vox Populi, the “Voice of the ‘Occasionally Interested’ People,” is Astin’s vision of an arena for bi-partisan discussion about what are often hot-button issues in politics and media. As host, Astin, who has been long interested in and active in politics, moderates civilized discussions between guests with a wide variety of viewpoints, including Noam Chomsky; Representative Steve Israel, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee; Ben Shapiro, author of The People vs. Barack Obama; Cullen Hoback, director of

Katniss Sets Box Office Ablaze

Amir here with the weekend's box office report. To the surprise of no one, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire came out on top, edging out not just this week's meagre competition, but also the original Hunger Games. Back then, it was surprising that the Ya adaptation could open to more than $150m, but with the book series now even more universally recognized and a leading lady who is threatening to become Hollywood's biggest star, these numbers aren't shocking. Still, to put things in perspective, Catching Fire now has one of the top five best opening weekends of all time, neck and neck with The Dark Knight Rises for the best 2D-only opening.

Batman franchise level openings for Hunger Games

Staggering numbers. The question at this point is whether the film has enough fuel in its tank to beat Iron Man 3 to the year's top spot.

Here's How the Filmmakers behind 'Terms and Conditions May Apply' Had the Most Robust Film Screening Q&A of the Year

Here's How the Filmmakers behind 'Terms and Conditions May Apply' Had the Most Robust Film Screening Q&A of the Year
When Cullen Hoback, the director of the documentary "Terms and Conditions May Apply" finished his film, he knew he'd need to get it to the active Internet users that need to see it.  So, working with a few Internet privacy organizations, he and his team created an online screening room for the film.  And afterwards, the audience flew to reddit and engaged in a conversation that may be this year's most robust film screening q&a.  The film explains to all users of the world's most popular websites how their privacy is being violated, and how they all may be somehow implicated in the web of security and surveillance that now hangs over all of our internet use.  Here's how they planned the screening that got them to the reddit home page, and that had over 2,500 people watching the film at once.

‘Terms and Conditions’ Director Rails Against Oversharing, Oversurveillance

‘Terms and Conditions’ Director Rails Against Oversharing, Oversurveillance
Cullen Hoback felt an “impotent frustration” when he was filming “Terms and Conditions May Apply” his documentary about Americans’ laissez-faire attitude about being constantly monitored by social-media services and the Nsa. “When I was shooting this, there was a real sense that no one was listening,” Hoback told the crowd at a Q&A following TheWrap’s showing of the documentary, part of the site’s Awards Screening Series. “How,” he asked himself, “do we get people to care about privacy?” That’s no longer the case, he told the evening’s moderator, the site’s Editor-in-Chief Sharon Waxman.

How Much Power Do the Little Guys and Gals Have? 4 Poltical Docs at Camden

How Much Power Do the Little Guys and Gals Have? 4 Poltical Docs at Camden
At this year's Camden International Film Festival, several films reminded viewers of the political power they held within them.  Or maybe they told us that we are all deluded about how much power we all really have.  Therein lies the challenge presented by films like "Caucus," "Public Hearing," "Terms and Conditions May Apply," and "Town Hall." Here's a take on all four films and their complicated engagement with the questions we encounter when we see ourselves as citizens, looking out for ourselves and each other: "Public Hearing," James N. Kienitz Wilkins When Kienitz-Wilkins introduced his film "Public Hearing" to a Camden audience, he told us to act like we would at a public hearing. This implied that, like public hearings Irl, this film would also have lulls, we'd often be pulled out of the goings-on and into our mental checklists and taking a look at the back of our eyelids.

Embarrassing Zuckerberg Footage Found In Newly Released Documentary

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has faced privacy snafus before, usually involving his users, but now the CEO is dealing with a breach in which he's the victim.

Last week, "Terms And Conditions May Apply," a documentary about internet privacy, was released in select theaters. According to the Agence France-Presse, the film contains an uncomfortable clip of Cullen Hoback, the documentary's filmmaker and director, confronting Zuckerberg.

"Do you still think privacy is dead? What are your real thoughts on privacy?" the director asks Zuckerberg outside the CEO's California home.

"Are you guys recording?" Zuckerberg replies. "Will you please not?"

Hoback turns off his video camera and Zuckerberg relaxes -- unaware that Hoback continues to film with an additional camera hidden in his glasses. Zuckerberg eventually asks Hoback to connect with the Facebook's public relations department.

Hoback told the Afp he wanted to turn the experience of privacy infringement onto Zuckerberg.

How I Became an Activist Filmmaker, Lifting the Veil on Infringements on Our Privacy

How I Became an Activist Filmmaker, Lifting the Veil on Infringements on Our Privacy
Someone recently asked me about my new documentary, "Terms and Conditions May Apply": "In making this film, did you consider yourself an investigator or an activist?" The truth is, I started out as an investigator and couldn't help but become an activist. In the early stages of development, I had no idea that I was actually creating a documentary about the greatest threat to civil liberties of our times: what it really means when you click "I Agree" after the "Terms and Conditions" on every app you download and every website

Terms and Conditions May Apply Movie Review
Title: Terms and Conditions May Apply Director: Cullen Hoback An engaging and rather scary nonfiction look at the death-by-papercut of online privacy, “Terms and Conditions May Apply” roots down into those small-print promises that companies extract from consumers via the Internet on a weekly if not daily basis. Directed by Cullen Hoback, the film makes a compelling case for if not outright societal revolt then at least much greater awareness, attention and oversight, lest a clear and settled-without-debate caste system of governmental spy privilege become the new normal. Interviewees include Ray Kurzweil, musician Moby, Orson Scott Card, Margaret Atwood and, well, sort of Mark Zuckerberg (more on that later), but ”Terms [ Read More ]

Terms And Conditions May Apply Paints a Scary Picture of Our Loss of Privacy [Review]

Terms and Conditions May Apply is likely the scariest documentary I'll see this year because it focuses on something I and millions of others give away every day: our personal data. Every search term, every click, every text message, every phone conversation is being stored on some hard drive somewhere and I allowed it to happen. I clicked "Agree" when I downloaded Chrome and proceeded to connect all of my Google services and now Google knows everything about my life online. Facebook automatically shares my personal data with the entire world unless I tell it not to and even when you think you've deleted your account, that data remains on file somewhere at Facebook HQ.

Review: Internet Security Documentary 'Terms And Conditions May Apply'

In director Cullen Hoback’s “Terms And Conditions May Apply,” he seems to be dealing with several issues, some political, some social, none all that clear. Of course, he’s diving into the morass of conflicts between capitalism and politics, an unholy marriage that acts as a cultural ouroborous for anyone who wants to offer a serious probe, so perhaps his hands are tied almost immediately. But the mission statement seems to involve asking questions towards what we’ve accepted all along. Documentaries should be discussed as films, not as cautionary announcements. But even at its sloppiest, it’s important a film like this exists, even if it strictly plays to the chin-stroking dreadlocked liberal in the third row who can’t stop admiring their own exquisite hemp pants. The picture takes a chronological look at the Internet, observing the very first moments where people started clicking on pages in

Review: Terms And Conditions May Apply Investigates The Death Of Privacy

A mere click of the mouse is all it takes for you to strike an almost Faustian bargain with one of the mega corporations on the planet. With that click we get access to fantastic email service, genius music players and easy-to-use photo editors. But what do the companies providing us with these seemingly free services get in return? Or, as director Cullen Hoback promptly asks in his film Terms And Conditions May Apply: "What if privacy policies weren't about protecting privacy but about taking it away?" Hoback is a documentarian and investigator in the vein of Michael Moore, putting himself front and center in the film as our fluent narrator and guide through what can often be labyrinthine subject matter. Unlike Moore, Hoback is...

Talking Must-See Doc 'Terms and Conditions May Apply': Nsa Spying, and Reading the Unsettling Fine Print (Trailer)
Cullen Hoback hasn’t really had a proper home for the last year -- “Keeping the government on its toes,” the director jokes. Sort of: He knows that they know that he knows that they probably knew where he was all the time.Hoback’s documentary “Terms and Conditions May Apply” is, in part, an operations manual for the 21st Century tech-savvy human. Have you ever signed an online user agreement? Of course you have. Have you ever read the fine print? Of course you haven’t. As one learns via the film, if any of us web-browsing hipsters ever actually read what we were agreeing to, it would take us 180 hours a year. And what’s in there? As “Terms and Conditions” tells it, the U.K.-based Game Station included a clause in its 2009 user agreement that included loss of the signees immortal soul. They collected 7,000 souls before changing the wording.

Terms and Conditions May Apply Chronicles the Death of Privacy

"There's some definite movement in the yard!" If you imagine that line spoken by the pimply, squeaky-voiced teen who works every drive-through on The Simpsons, you get some sense of the awkward confrontation director Cullen Hoback has with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg during the riveting climax of his death-of-privacy documentary Terms and Conditions May Apply. Hoback locates Zuckerberg's address through publicly available information and stakes out his house because, y'know, irony. At this point, Facebook's disregard for user privacy and its exploitation of personal information are so well documented that this klutzy interaction between two vaguely embarrassed social maladroits brings some cringey originality to the table.

Terms and Conditions May Apply Trailer

Terms and Conditions May Apply Trailer
Admit it: you don't really read the endless Terms and Conditions connected to every website you visit, phone call you make or app you download. But every day, billion-dollar corporations are learning more about your interests, your friends and family, your finances, and your secrets... and are not only selling the information to the highest bidder, but freely sharing it with the government.

And you agreed to all of it.

With fascinating examples and so-unbelievable-they're-almost-funny facts, filmmaker Cullen Hoback exposes what governments and corporations are legally taking from you every day, turning the future of both privacy and civil liberties uncertain. From whistle blowers and investigative journalists to zombie fan clubs and Egyptian dissidents, this disquieting expos&#233 demonstrates how every one of us has incrementally opted-in to a real-time surveillance state, click by click, and what, if anything, can be done about it.

Hot Docs Today, Cannes Tomorrow

Ulka Śniegowska lives in Wroclaw Poland and is the Director of The American Film Festival held in November there which also features the new and increasingly influential U.S. In Progress, a chance for American indies to be seen by independent distributors around Europe. Its sister festival, The Champs Elysees Film Festival held in June in Paris also hosts U.S. In Progress.

Ula, as she is called, is currently at Hot Docs in Toronto. She recently sent this update to me:

"I'm in Toronto and saw Who is Dayani Cristal remembering you liked it and I also loved it. There is a great selection here. I saw The Kill Team yesterday — wow! shocking! Kill Team is a doc about the army conspiracy against low rank soldier in Afghanistan. Next I am going to;see one of the best (presumably) docs of the season: Teenage. Fascinating accomplishment in editing that makes us question our perception of the past and which blurs the boundaries between fiction and factography. I found out Matt Wolfe played at the New Horizons in 2008 and he definitely is a very talented and brave filmmaker. Terms and Conditions May Apply is a great but scary movie- about privacy policy.

John Sloss of Cinetic, gave a talk that was as informative as it was entertaining, however not very inclusive or inviting towards filmmakers. He disclosed his ongoing project, the curatorial platform part of Filmbuff. He also reminded the audience of Cinetic's largest doc success: Exit through the Gift Shop and declared himself a great doc fan. Next, after the War Room screening, I will be seeing Da Pennebaker in person, she will be giving a talk and receiving a Honorary Lifetime Award. Hot Docs is great in general. The Sun is out but I miss home and look forward to Cannes."

In Cannes Ula will be on the jury of CiCAE, the Art-House association in Directors Fortnight.

You can see more on Ula's unending travels to world film events on her Facebook .
