    Sundance Film Festival Offers A Window on the World (with Contacts)

    Sundance's announcement yesterday of the 4 main categories plus Premieres - U.S. Dramatic Competition, U.S. Documentary Competition, World Cinema Dramatic Competition, World Cinema Documentary Competition -- is a mash of many cultures not only in "World" sections, but within the U.S. sections themselves. Consistent with my vision (and wish) to see world cultures enter the mainstream of independent features as I write about Africa (and its diaspora), Latino films, and about women filmmakers (♀), and Asia, a look at the Sundance lineup takes us beyond these cultures as they increasingly merge with one another.

    Producers to Watch: J. Todd Harris - Creative Producer

    During AFM I spoke at length with J. Todd Harris, who we’ve known since his days running John Davis’ Classics division at Fox and from the go-go days of the dotcom bubble when we were both affiliated with a start up called ReelPlay. Todd and I had a wide-ranging conversation that included his background as a theatre producer, his early independent film days, his recent Sundance films (The Kids Are All Right and Bottle Shock), his current projects, and plans to launch Branded Pictures Entertainment (BPE). His two latest completed projects were both launched at AFM (The Family Tree, ISA: Myriad, and Miss Nobody, ISA: Moving Pictures). Both wer...
