Women Cinematographers Are Primed For a Big Year in 2017

28 December 2016 8:53 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

#2017PreviewBecause they deserve way more recognition.First Look: Mudbound

Movie awards ceremonies are a trivia gold mine. And since I prefer to stuff my brain with an assortment of facts rather than, say, how to do my taxes, I know a lot. For example, did you know that Bob Hope hosted the Academy Awards 18 times? Or that the Golden Globe statuette weighs 5.5 pounds? How about: the first and last time a woman won Best Director Motion Picture at the Golden Globes was in 1983 (Barbra Streisand, Yentl). And: only one Academy Award Best Picture nominee has been directed by a woman of color (Ava DuVernay, Selma).

Perhaps the most incredulous and infuriating bit of trivia I’ve come across is that no woman has ever won an Oscar for Best Cinematography because no woman has ever even been nominated. Seriously. It’s actually the only category in which a woman has yet to be nominated. Congratulations »

War For The Planet Of The Apes: 15 things we learned from the set

9 December 2016 4:26 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Dec 12, 2016

We gleaned all kinds of stuff from our time on the Vancouver set of War For The Planet Of The Apes. Here's what we know right now...

Last October, Den Of Geek packed a bag full of scarves, gloves and woolly hats and ventured off to Vancouver. There, in a chilly woodland far outside the city, director Matt Reeves was in the throes of shooting the third chapter in 20th Century Fox's Apes saga, War For The Planet Of The Apes. A sequel to 2014's bleak, spectacular Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, it continues the saga of Caesar, the leader of the burgeoning civilisation of intelligent apes, and the seemingly unstoppable war sparked in the previous movie.

5 December 2016 1:15 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Few film festivals in the world create bidding wars for titles quite like the Sundance Film Festival.

Though some of the films in the upcoming slate have already been acquired, many are looking to find a home during the 2017 festival, which takes place between January 19 and January 29 in Park City, Utah.

Marrakech Film Festival Opens With Bela Tarr Speech, Kim Jee-woon’s ‘The Age Of Shadows’

3 December 2016 1:42 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Following last year’s emotionally-charged edition which took place shortly after the Paris attacks, Marrakech Film Festival opened on a more serene note on Friday, with an introduction by Hungarian Master Béla Tarr who serves as the 16th edition jury president.

Tarr, a radical filmmaker best known for “The Man From London” and “The Turin Horse,” made a heart-warming, politics-free speech celebrating the humanistic virtues of cinema.

“We all are here because we all believe of the power of the motion picture, we all believe in human beings, in human dignity and dignity of all kinds of life and I hope we’ll see beautiful movies. Cross your fingers for the future,” said Tarr, stirring strong applauses.

The ceremony was followed by the Moroccan premiere of Kim Jee-woon’s “The Age Of Shadows” and a lavish party hosted by the Prince Moulay Rachid.

Tarr is presiding over a multinational jury composed Italian actress Jasmine Trinca, »

Kim Jee-Woon’s ‘The Age of Shadows’ to Open Marrakech

22 November 2016 12:47 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The 16th Marrakech Film Festival – one of the largest cultural events in the Arab world and African continent – has unveiled its full-line up.

Opening film is the 1920s-set transcendent spy thriller “The Age Of Shadows,” by South Korea’s Kim Jee-woon. Marrakech will close with  Fatih Akin’s coming-of-age drama, “Goodbye Berlin.”

Other out-of-competition pics include Louis-Julien Petit’s “Carole Matthieu” starring Isabelle Adjani; “Elle” by Paul Verhoeven; Disney’s animated adventure, “Moana;” and “My Uncle” the second feature by Moroccan director Nassim Abassi, starring comedian Abderrahim Tounsi. Adjani, Verhoeven and Tounsi will all receive career tributes at the festival.

Marrakech’s official selection aims to offer new, distinctive and dissonant voices in world cinema: “The radicalism of the selection reflects a wish to counter the widespread artistic blandness which unfolds on screens, and instead seeks a return to principles, to the roots of what engenders creation,” stated Bruno Barde, »

Marc Forster to Direct ‘Winnie the Pooh’ Live-Action Movie on ‘Christopher Robin’ for Disney

18 November 2016 11:58 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Marc Forster will direct “Christopher Robin,” the live-action adaptation of Disney’s classic cartoon “Winnie the Pooh.”

Alex Ross Perry is set to write the script.

The film will follow Christopher Robin, the little boy who befriends a lovable bear in the celebrated A.A. Milne books, as an adult. According to sources, the film will share similarities with Seth MacFarlane’s fantasy-buddy film “Ted,” but center more on family fun than vulgarities.

The character of Winnie the Pooh was created by Milne for a collection of stories in the books “Winnie-the-Pooh” (1926) and “The House at Pooh Corner” (1928). Disney licensed the rights to the bear in 1961, leading to TV shows and four feature films: “The Tigger Movie,” “Piglet’s Big Movie,” “Pooh’s Heffalump Movie,” and “Winnie the Pooh.”

Kristin Burr will oversee the project for the studio.

The film falls in line with Disney’s slate of live-action adaptations that »
