    cinemadaily | NYFF Brings "Wild Grass," "Police," "Ghost Town" Uptown

    In a report from The Hollywood Reporter by Sam Thielman, the New York Film Festival's organizers explain the past, present, and future of the festival. "In recent years, though, [festival programmer Richard] Pena says, 'people got the impression that it was impossible to get a ticket to see the films -- there was this idea that you had to be a donor or somehow involved with the movie to get a ticket.' The results of that misperception have not been pretty: Empty seats abounded in recent editions...It also fostered the feeling that the fest as a whole was largely for rich people." The article continues, "Now, to combat both the snob image a...

    iPOP Flashback | Celebs, Friends and Parties: Toronto '09 Pics are Worth a 1000 Words!

    Now that all the reviews, news (not that there was a ton of it) and features of the Toronto International Film Festival have been digested, why not take a little time out and check out indieWIRE's images from the fest in good ole' iPOP.

Hernandez reported that the festival would kick-off solely at the newly renovated Alice Tully Hall for the first time and, in a dramatic break with a nearly twenty-five year tradition, there will not be a black tie gala opening bash at the venerable Tavern on the Green in Central Park. Tonight those changes will rear their head as the festival kicks off its 47th edition with Alain Resnais' "Wild Grass" (Les He...
