    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 ...

    A Film That Is Making a Difference - The Whistleblower

    A couple of months ago I participated in a Q&A with Amy Kaufman one of the producers of The Whistleblower. I asked her if the people at the UN had seen the film and her reply was that she didn't think that they would be so into it because the film takes a harsh stand on the peacekeepers who traffic...

    Vera Farmiga Steps Up to Direct with Higher Ground

    It's tricky business when you make a movie about religion. Religion elicits such passion that it's hard to get the nuance without sounding preachy or judgmental. But that is exactly what Vera Farmiga has done in her directorial debut. She's made a movie about religion - evangelical Christianity t...

    Guest Post: I Sold My House To Make My Feature by Sloane U'Ren

    I sold my home to make my feature film debut Dimensions: A Line, A Loop, A Tangle of Threads. It's a sci-fi love story that takes place in England in the 1920s and 1930s...a period-science fiction – not exactly what you're supposed to make on a very limited budget! Some people have said 'insane', ...
