    ROTTERDAM '07 CRITICS NOTEBOOK | Malaysian Cinema Steps Into Spotlight at Rotterdam Fest

    Instead of the usual trio of winners, the Tiger Awards at this year's International Film Festival Rotterdam went to four films. One can only assume this reflected a jury impasse as opposed to a surfeit of quality. Many here seemed to agree that this was not the finest year for the Tiger competition,...

    Park City '07 SHORTS NOTEBOOK | Create Your Own Shorts Playlist: Over Forty Sundance Films are Just

    Time Magazine's recent selection of "You" as the "Person of the Year" was spot-on. This year, the short film programmers at the Sundance Film Festival officially ceded control to you, the viewer. Before the festival began, the programming professionals spent months carefully considering what short should play before which feature, and how best to bundle the shorts-only programs. But now with more than half of the 71 official selections streaming for free on the festival's website, it's your turn to choose what you want to see and when you want to see it. For those who might feel overwhelmed by the extensive a la carte menu available online, h...
