The Report (I) (2019)
The trailer kicks off by showcasing a seemingly happy couple played by Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver. Quickly, we realize that's not how this is all going to go down, as they're getting divorced. That complicates things, but this trailer shows us all of the intimate complications that go along with such a thing.
“We’re a smaller festival with fewer overall screenings than other events, so we really have to think hard about our selections,” says Mff Executive Director Susan Koch. Mff is also a unique festival in that it’s exclusively run by women. “One of our signature events is our Women in Film luncheon,” she says, “which is a terrific networking event and extremely important as a tool for allowing women to have their voices and opinions heard.”
Programming director Connie White was responsible for whittling down a schedule of 34 films the festival should highlight. Mff’s opening night selection is “Marriage Story,” while the closing night will screen “The Irishman” – both from Netflix,

In recent years, the market for these “packages,” industry-speak for projects that frequently come with key filmmaking talent and actors attached, had cooled off. Studios were spending more money on comic book adaptations and established franchises.
The Report tells the unbelievable and frustrating true story of how the CIA’s brutal use of illegal torture on people after the 9/11 attacks was uncovered. You can read my review for the movie here.
The movie was written and directed by screenwriter Scott Z. Burns, and it has an impressive ensemble cast that includes Adam Driver, Annette Bening, Jon Hamm, Michael C. Hall, Tim Blake Nelson, Corey Stoll, and more.

Based on a true story, “The Report” is described as following idealistic staffer Daniel J. Jones (Driver), who is tasked by his boss Senator Dianne Feinstein (Bening) to lead an investigation of the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation Program, which was created in the aftermath of 9/11. Jones’ relentless pursuit of the truth leads to explosive findings that uncover the lengths to which the nation’s top intelligence agency went to destroy evidence, subvert the law, and hide a brutal secret from the American public.

More cracks are appearing in the previously impregnable 90-day theatrical window, causing consternation among the major chains and some independent cinemas.
The Netflix productions The King, The Irishman, Marriage Story and The Two Popes are all defying the traditional window with an average gap of three weeks between theatrical launch and streaming.
The Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace in Cremorne, Peter Sourris’ New Farm Cinemas and The Elizabeth Picture Theatre in Brisbane and The Backlot in Perth have booked the Netflix releases, joining Dendy Cinemas and Eddie Tamir’s Classic, Lido and Cameo Cinemas in Victoria and Randwick Ritz.
David Michôd’s The King, which opened in those cinemas last Friday, will premiere on Netflix on November 1. The streaming giant requires all participating exhibitors to sign Nda agreements so the box office earnings will never be revealed.
Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman opens in cinemas on November
Regardless of the type of film, a nominee needs broad academy support to win this race. Indeed, all 10 of these most recent Best Original Screenplay winners were, at the least, Best Picture nominees. And five of them won the big prize, bringing the total number of Best Picture champs with Oscar-winning original screenplays to 17. By comparison, 41 films have done this on the adapted side.
In 2019, four of the five nominees for Best Original Screenplay at the Academy Awards
“Every successive opportunity is an invitation to explore a kind of writing I haven’t done,” says Burns, who will partake in a conversation with Variety’s Malina Saval on Oct. 13 at the Mill Valley Film Festival. “I feel like by the time I’m done with something, I’ve exhausted the toolbox of that genre in my mind and it’s fun for me to go and explore something else.
International filmmakers were challenged to create stories that engage broad audiences rather than preach to the converted at a panel called ‘Putting Climate Change on the Creative Agenda’ at the BFI London Film Festival this week.
“How do we break the storytelling out of that documentary ghetto,” said Jess Search, chief executive of the UK’s Doc Society, who chaired the debate. ”How do we get it much more into every other part of culture?”
The panel coincided

Many Australian exhibitors are up in arms about the upcoming theatrical releases of the Netflix productions The King, The Irishman, Marriage Story and The Two Popes.
They believe the accelerated home entertainment window for each title, which averages three weeks, jeopardises the primacy of the theatrical release while they continue to invest millions of dollars refurbishing their cinemas.
Some exhibitors have refused to screen all four films while others were not offered them. Eddie Tamir’s Classic, Lido and Cameo Cinemas are the sole locations in Victoria.
In Nsw, Tamir’s Ritz Cinemas in Randwick has booked the films. So has Dendy Cinemas. Those venues agreed to accept a shorter window last year for Alfonso Cuarón’s Netflix-financed Roma.
Most exhibitors to whom If spoke were not willing to talk on the record but privately expressed their anger over the release plans. One film industry
