    Eugene Hernandez Moves to Lincoln Center

    Eugene Hernandez is the reason I hitched my wagon to indieWIRE. He's that rare creature: an idealist. He believes in reaching out to the best of what people can be, as filmmakers, writers, webmasters, distributors or bloggers. He and indieWIRE parent SnagFilms CEO Rick Allen offered TOH a home, wher...

    14th Annual Urbanworld Film Festival

    This festival doesn't get enough ink...who outside of N.Y. and other African Diaspora Film Festivals is aware of the films showing here? Are the acquisitions executives on top of this?

    Everyone in Their 30s Must See This Film

    Once in a while a film comes along that speaks to a generation. Kate Aselton's "The Freebie" is not one of those films. Instead it's a work that speaks to any and every generation as its members enter a certain age. I want to generalize this period as one's 30s, but it could possibly come about earl...

Will he join Leonardo DiCaprio in Clint Eastwood's Hoover as FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover's love interest Clyde Tolson?
