    Classics Old and New Set to Screen Ebert's Overlooked Fest

    A mixture of old and new fare will again screen at Roger Ebert's Overlooked Film Festival, slated for April 26 - 30 in Champaign, IL. George Cukor's 1964 classic, "My Fair Lady" will launch the event that will include 12 films curated by film critic Ebert, including Sundance 2006 favorites "Man Push Cart" and "Somebodies." Ramin Bahrani's "Man Push Cart" is the story of a Pakistani-born man who scrapes by a living by working as a vendor in a push-cart in the streets of Manhattan. The man, played by Pakistani-born Ahmad Razvi, was once a revered rock star in Pakistan, which creates an awkward situation for him when he's recognized by a fellow ...

    Katrina, Class, Politics and A Few Filmmaking Legends in Spotlight at 9th Full Frame Doc Fest

    At the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, organizers like to think of festival filmmakers as family. At the end of a busy weekend of movie watching last Sunday afternoon in Durham, NC, event founder and artistic director Nancy Buirski thanked attendees from the stage during the awards ceremony and BBQ lunch, congratulating all fest filmmakers and inviting them back to the event even if they don't have a film to show. Such warmth clearly works, because a number of doc directors made the trip to North Carolina just to hang out, see some movies, and support fellow filmmakers. A festival that embraces both emerging and established directors, t...

    First Person: Jim Mckay - The Fate of AIVF and the Question of Community

    While I have cherished the AIVF for years and benefited from the organization and my participation in it greatly, I feel that it has, for quite awhile now, consistently failed to live up to its mission. This is not necessarily the fault, as I see it, of any recent Executive Directors, staff members,...

She's the managing editor of the literary journal 'ZYZZYVA,' a writing teacher, and a soccer player. She's also a recurring motif in the most recent non-fiction films of Caveh Zahedi. The longsu...

    "A Little Piece of Heaven" and "Iraq in Fragments" Take Nods at Bustling Cleveland Festival

    The Cleveland International Film Festival received a nice boost from locals in celebration of its 30th anniversary. Attendance rose 17 percent from the previous year, and CIFF staffers gleefully mentioned their record-breaking attendance when introducing screenings. "We have broken a record everyday except Monday (March 20th)," said one CIFF rep before introducing British director Brian Hill's "Songbirds" last week. "Cleveland had a certain famous visitor that day, so it interfered..." The mention prompted loud boos from the crowd, since the reference was to President Bush's visit to Cleveland earlier that week. Ohio may be a red state, but ...
