    indieWIRE CRITICS' POLL '08 | Scott Tobias

    This is the latest ballot in indieWIRE's 2008 Critics Poll, continuing the tradition of a national survey of critics by calling attention to the year's best -- and, in many cases, most overlooked -- films, providing a meaningful counterpoint to much of the year-end hoopla. Note that some lists are unranked at the discretion of the critic. For all categories except Best Undistributed Film, eligible feature films had first-run theatrical engagements in the U.S. during 2008. Films without a U.S. distributor, screened anywhere (festival circuit, one-off screenings, etc.), are eligible in the Best Undistributed Film category. The full list of crit...

    DISPATCH FROM DUBAI | Puttin' on the Ritz: 5th DIFF Dazzles and Spotlights the Downtrodden

    "This is a great city and a crossroads of trade," praised director Oliver Stone Thursday night prior to the opening night screening of his latest "W." at the Dubai International Film Festival. Though the film has already opened at home, it is quite a testament for a festival that is only in its fifth year to get the likes of Stone and others to travel literally halfway around the world.

And the very word "Dubai" conjures images of over the top wealth and zillion dollar development. And q...

    DISPATCH FROM LAS VEGAS | Fest Organizers Look to Online Options While Anticipating Recession

    The International Film Festival Summit wrapped its 5th edition earlier this week, having returned to Las Vegas proper after a detour last year in Henderson, NV, and perhaps as a result boasted a significant increase in registered attendees. The three-day event drew festival organizers from all over the U.S., as well as a few international colleagues as a professional forum to discuss a wide range of issues relevant to this small but specialized subset of the film industry, from practical considerations of sponsorship, marketing, ticketing, board development, and programming, to more far-reaching philosophical explorations of the role of film ...
