Looking Forward: What the Indie-Film Community Is Most Anticipating in 2013

By Indiewire | Indiewire January 2, 2013 at 7:59PM

Anticipation runs hot in most movie lovers, and it's no less potent for the people who make, produce, program and publicize the films. Indiewire asked a group of industry players what they were most looking forward to seeing in 2013, and they shared their answers.

DAVID LAUB, Oscilloscope Laboratories

More movies! Several of my favorite filmmakers have films scheduled for completion or release next year, including the Coen Brothers ("Inside Llewyn Davis"), Wong Kar-Wai ("The Grandmaster"), Spike Jonze ("Her"), Kelly Reichardt ("Night Moves"), Danny Boyle ("Trance"), Sofia Coppola ("The Bling Ring"), David Gordon Green ("Prince Avalanche," "Joe"), Pedro Almodovar ("I'm So Excited"), Edgar Wright ("The World's End"), Jason Reitman ("Labor Day") and Lars Von Trier ("Nymphomaniac"), just to name a few. Equally exciting is the anticipation of finding the new filmmaker discoveries of this year; as we prepare for Sundance (one of the ultimate hubs for discovering fresh new voices), I think back on the amazing debuts ("Beasts of the Southern Wild") and big steps forward ("Compliance," "Looper") by young filmmakers in 2012, and I can't wait to see what we have to discover in 2013! 

DAVID C. MAGDAEL, president/CEO, David Magdael & Associates, Inc.

I am looking forward to new technology that continues to evolve. Not so long ago, everyone was talking about the digital age coming – and now it’s here with almost every cinema/cineplex going digital. It’s crazy and exciting at the same time. I am also looking forward to HOMELAND SEASON 3 and MAD MEN 2013.

DYLAN MARCHETTi, president, Variance Films

Over the last year, between IFP labs and Film Week, filmmakers we’ve spoken to and producers we’ve met, we’ve noticed that there’s a very exciting group of filmmakers who have been working for quite a while on some truly interesting projects. If that’s any indication, I think 2013 is going to be an excellent year for indie film in general, at all levels, and we can’t wait to see these films, whether they’re our titles or not.

JARED MOSHE, writer-director, “Dead Man’s Burden”

Maybe it's a bit shameless to say, but I'm most looking forward to the theatrical release of my directorial debut DEAD MAN'S BURDEN.

BRIAN NEWMAN, founder/consultant, Sub-genre Media

Aside from finally debuting our app (www.flicklist.com) to the public, I'm most looking forward to seeing many great "behind the scenes" projects come to fruition in 2013. I know many people who have been working hard on new film business ideas, new scripts and new web projects, and I can't wait to see some of them launch to the world in 2013.

JENNI OLSON, VP marketing and e-commerce, Wolfe Video

The entertainment-related thing I’m most looking forward to in 2013 is the premiere of Chris Mason Johnson’s new gay drama “Test.” It’s a wonderful 1985 period piece about a young gay modern dancer coming into his own in San Francisco. I’m very proud to be one of the film’s executive producers.

RICHARD J. SHEEHAN, VP & Sr. Relationship Manager, HSBC Bank USA, Entertainment & Media Group

I am most anticipating the film version of "August: Osage County," with Meryl Streep, next year. The play was incredible, and I cannot wait to see if the film is as funny, gut wrenching and dramatic.

GENNA TERRANOVA, director of programming, Tribeca Film Festival

Seeing more films, meeting new filmmakers and finishing the Tribeca program for 2013.

BASIL TSIOKOS, programming associate, documentary features, Sundance Film Festival

Beyond seeing audience and industry reactions to the Sundance lineup this month, I'm really looking forward to attending True/False once again after missing it this year.

LUCY WALKER, filmmaker, “Waste Land”

The one thing I'm most stoked about in 2013 is my new feature doc “The Crash Reel,” about gnarly thrills and spills in the world of professional snowboarding, which is premiering at Sundance, with a soundtrack comprised of Moby, Chemical Brothers, Underworld, M83, Sigur Ros, Jose Gonzalez, Tiesto, Cliff Martinez, Ryan Adams, Crystal Castles, Canned Heat, Groove Armada, DJ Shadow, Lykke Li, Ben Howard, Tycho, Bon Iver, The Hives, Stars of the Lid, Spiritualized and Grizzly Bear. Now that's what I call a documentary score! Wong Kar Wai's new film is right up there tied in top place — I'll be at the Berlinale premiere with goosebumps.
