    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. Some attendees said they felt the "traffic" and events were comparatively lighter this year, and maybe that was true. But that certainly doesn't mean that a good chunk of industry, press, celebs and would-be crashers were hitting the hay at 10:30 every night! And some of iW's annual TIFF events still went off without a recessionary hitch, including Sony Classics and IFC Films' annual dinners, which were still ...

    Change Has Come as NYFF Kicks Off Year 47

    "Change is coming to the New York Film Festival," Eugene Hernandez wrote just over a month ago. While rumors had been circulating for some time, when the lineup for the festival was announced in August, the festival made things clear. 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...

    cinemadaily | In Theaters: "Coco Before Chanel"

    "True to its title, 'Coco Before Chanel' chronicles the early life of the woman who would become perhaps the single most influential figure in 20th-century fashion," writes the New York Times' A.O. Scott. "But the film, directed and co-written by Anne Fontaine, bears less resemblance to a standard-issue biopic (like, say, 'La Vie en Rose,' to take a recent French example) than to a novel by Émile Zola or Theodore Dreiser. With a mixture of brutal candor and tender sympathy, it charts the rise of an ambitious, difficult woman, taking note of the obstacles and opportunities offered by her time, place and circumstances." The film opens in limite...

    No More Doom and Gloom? IFP Crowd Eye Distribution's Silver Cloud

    The sky is falling. Indie bloodbath. Independent film is dead. All are phrases that have provoked passionate discussions. Instead of going there, though, a group of distribution veterans eschewed dark talk in favor of optimism earlier this week at a signature IFP panel discussion on the current stat...

    Abracadabra, Danny McBride: A Look Back at Summer's Best Short Films

    Every Summer Los Angeles hosts a multitude of film festivals and special screenings devoted to short films. This year the Sundance Film Festival jumped into the fray with a free screening on August 21, 2009 entitled "Downtown and Dirty Shorts." The lineup, which featured new and old student shorts by James Franco, David Gordon Green, and Danny McBride, turned out to be so popular that a second screening had to be hastily arranged to accommodate the block-long standby line. A week earlier, the HollyShorts Film Festival closing night program was standing-room-only as shorts directed by Scarlett Johansson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Courteney Co...

    cinemadaily | John Krasinski Brings "Hideous Men" to US Screens

    With his big screen reputation exploding with parts in Sam Mendes' "Away We Go" and Nancy Meyers's "It's Complicated," "The Office" star John Krasinski gets behind the camera for an adaptation of David Foster Wallace's short story collection "Brief Interviews with Hideous Men."
