    Toronto Day 5 - It's a Marathon, Not a Sprint

    It's Day 5 and I just feel like I've gotten my groove on. I think I've seen 10 movies and I have one more today. Power watching films is a skill, and I haven't yet developed those chops. Since most people at the screenings I attend are all film people -- writers, buyers, sellers, programmers and ...

    Toronto Day 3- We Need to Talk About Kevin and Think of Me

    I woke up thinking about Tilda Swinton's blank face from We Need to Talk About Kevin. It is amazing how much expressiveness there can be in a blank stare. The movie directed bravely by Lynne Ramsey is an adaptation of the Lionel Shriver novel of the same name. Like Ramsey, Shriver is not a shy a...

    Toronto Film Festival - Day 1

    It didn't look like I was going to make it this morning because the day started with a monsoon and my flight out of NY was cancelled which of course I wasn't notified about until I was at the airport, but everything worked out well and I made it onto a lovely Air Canada flight and arrived only one hour behind schedule. I also met a distributor Stuart Strutin of Panorama Entertainment on the flight and found out he is distributing Niki Caro (Whale Rider) film The Vintner's Luck. He also has a bunch of other female directed films that we discussed. He told me that he doesn't release a lot of his films in NYC because it is so expensive. Not ...

    Sexism Watch: NY Times Piece on Toronto Docs Includes No Women Directed Films

    It's so fascinating how a genre supposedly equally divided between males and females can be made to seem so completely dominated by men. For those people who don't know much about documentaries and the great, amazing women who make films you'd think we lived in a world where only men directed docs....
