    DISPATCH FROM ROME | Fewer stars, lower expectations and small gems at Italian Fest

    As in Venice last month, the program of the Rome International Film Festival (RIFF) is heavy on locally produced films and lacks international star power.

    indieWIRE INTERVIEW | "I've Loved You So Long" Director Philippe Claudel

    The film has yet to bow here, yet Kristin Scott Thomas is already a magnet for Oscar buzz. In "I've Loved You So Long" by Philippe Claudel she plays Juliette, a woman just released from prison after serving a fifteen-year sentence for murder.

Mostly, though, she faces her own struggle to turn from darkness and despair toward a new beginni...

    DISPATCH FROM MONTREAL | Fest Nouveau Cinema Celebrates The Spirit of Montreal

    Canada's longest running film festival, Festival du Nouveau Cinema (FNC) has seen a remarkable rebound since the drama that surrounded it a few years back. In 2004, the festival came under new management when Daniel Langlois, director of FNC since 1999, left the organization to begin the New Montreal FilmFest. New Montreal's intention was to merge with the Montreal Festival of New Cinema and New Media, thus creating a potentially devastating competitor to FNC, which prides itself on its devotion to cinematic innovation. However, a variety of controversies led to New Montreal's demise, and FNC has since seen both a significant increase in att...
