‘An Inconvenient Sequel’ Filmmakers on Modifying Their Film After Donald Trump’s Climate Policy Changes
Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk’s “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power” had its world premiere at Sundance 2017 — the evening before Donald Trump’s inauguration. Since then, they’ve had to update their film, a follow-up to Al Gore’s 2006 Oscar-winning documentary, with the changes the new administration has made in regard to climate change.

“In many ways it was an era ago,” Shenk said in a conversation with IndieWire Editor at Large Anne Thompson following a screening at the International Documentary Association’s annual screening series. “[When] we finished the film we didn’t know what he was going to do. We heard, of course, his campaign promises…leading up to his announcement in June to leave the Paris accords, it became more and more apparent…that we really owed it to the film to update those last few minutes.”

‘Grain’ Wins Grand Prix at Tokyo Festival

‘Grain’ Wins Grand Prix at Tokyo Festival
Turkish director Semih Kaplanoglu’s dystopian future drama “Grain” received the Grand Prix at the closing ceremony of the Tokyo International Film Festival.

The festival closed Friday with a screening of Al Gore documentary “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” with Gore present to introduce the film.

“Film festivals relieve filmmakers and audiences of commercial demands,” said Tommy Lee Jones, president of the jury, in his closing remarks. The films in the Tiff competition featured “no pistols, no car crashes, no explosions and no damsels in distress. Not that they’re always bad, but they’re not required. That does not relive filmmakers of responsibility for narrative coherence and visual beauty and making good use of the audience’s time.”

Silvia Luzi and Luca Bellino’s “Crater” took the second place special jury prize. Edmund Yeo won the best director prize for “Aqerat (We the Dead),” Teemu Nikki best screenplay for “Euthanizer” and Dong Yue, director of “The

Oscar Doc Submissions Are 35 Percent Women-Directed

Motherland

It’s time to meet the 2018 Oscar doc contenders. One hundred seventy features have been submitted for consideration in the category at the upcoming Academy Awards, and one of them will be taking home an Oscar and the title of Best Doc at the 90th installment of the ceremony. Of those 170 titles, 60 are directed or co-directed by women, amounting to about 35 percent of the total. Last year, 30 percent of the features in the race were helmed or co-helmed by women. Just one doc submitted by a woman earned a nod, Ava DuVernay’s “13th,” an exploration of the connection between slavery and mass-incarceration in the United States.

“Several of the films have not yet had their required Los Angeles and New York qualifying releases,” a press release announcing this year’s doc hopefuls specified. So at this point it’s not a sure bet that these films will be eligible to advance, since “submitted features must fulfill the theatrical release requirements and comply with all of the category’s other qualifying rules in order to” do so.

Docs in the running include Amanda Lipitz’s “Step,” an inspirational story of an all-girls dance team at a Baltimore high school, Nanfu Wang’s “I Am Another You,” a portrait of a drifter in Florida, and Ramona S. Diaz’s “Motherland,” a look inside the world’s busiest maternity hospital.

A shortlist of 15 films will be unveiled in December, and nominations will be announced January 23, 2018. The Oscars will take place March 4, 2018.

Check out all of the women-directed and co-directed docs up for Oscar glory below. List adapted from a press release.

170 Documentary Features Submitted for Oscar Consideration

170 Documentary Features Submitted for Oscar Consideration
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced on Friday that 170 films have been submitted for documentary feature Oscar consideration.

Included are films like “City of Ghosts,” “Cries from Syria,” “Faces Places” and “Kedi,” which have picked up nominations on the awards circuit already.

Several of the submissions have not yet had their required Los Angeles and New York qualifying releases. Theatrical release requirements must be fulfilled and submitted titles must comply with all of the category’s other qualifying rules in order to advance in the voting process.

A shortlist of 15 films will be announced in December.

This year’s documentary feature Oscar winner was Ezra Edelman and Espn’s “O.J.: Made in America.” Following an outcry over what was perceived as a television series winning a film award, the Academy added a new rule disallowing multi-part movies from being eligible.

Hollywood Contenders – Looking at potential Best Documentary Feature contenders

Ahoy there folks! For what is one of my final installments in the annual category/contender rundown, I’m beginning to finish things up by moving on from the big eight categories. Yes, I’m taking a look now at one of the in betweens, or as I call them, the “mini-majors”. That’s where the focus will now be. This time out, that happens to be the rarely boring and highly unpredictable Best Documentary Feature race. Obviously, this is a rather hard one to pin down early on, or really ever, but as always, I’m feeling more than up for the challenge. Take a gander below and obviously keep in mind that this one also will be more fluid than normal going forward, as lots is still to be decided. Additionally, I’ll make up my mind soon about if there’s another category getting this treatment after Foreign Language Feature next week.

‘An Inconvenient Sequel’ Giveaway: Win a Blu-Ray Copy of Al Gore’s Climate Change Sequel

‘An Inconvenient Sequel’ Giveaway: Win a Blu-Ray Copy of Al Gore’s Climate Change Sequel
In 2006, Al Gore released “An Inconvenient Truth,” which broke down the science behind climate change and made it easily digestible for audiences. The impact was enormous, and climate change became a serious talking point in both politics and popular culture. “An Inconvenient Truth” inspired countless documentaries that have come in its wake, including Leonardo DiCaprio’s 2016 documentary “Before the Flood.”

Although Al Gore gained the nation’s attention in 2006, climate change has continued to spiral out of control, prompting the former Vice President to film a follow up film. As climate change continues to be debated in Congress, “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power” feels like an even more timely and necessary watch.

Morelia, Mexico – Now ranking second in the world in terms of admissions, Morelia-based giant exhibitor Cinepolis is expanding into the Middle East and has set up a beachhead in Dubai with former Cinepolis India expansion chief Ashish Shukla at the helm. Plans are underway to raise a still unquantified number of screens in the Gulf states of Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates by next year.

WB and New Line's 'It' Propels September 2017 to Record Heights

WB and New Line's 'It' Propels September 2017 to Record Heights
September 2017 saw record returns with calendar grosses topping $695 million, falling just shy of becoming the first September to ever total $700 million at the domestic box office. Leading the way was Warner Bros. and New Line's massive hit It, which delivered record numbers of its own and accounted for over 40% of the month's total gross. September is also the first month since April to show an improvement over the same month in 2016, with September grosses finishing 18.3% higher than 2016. From a yearly stand point, 2017 was pacing 6.3% behind 2016 at the end of August and September grosses helped turn things around somewhat with 2017 pacing 4.6% behind 2016's record year by the end of the month. However, with October already pacing 20.8% behind last year (as of October 9) it's looking like September's gains will be lost throughout the current month, putting additional pressure on final two months of the year to turn the tide.Overall, September 2017 saw calendar grosses reach $696.2 million,

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Abundant Acreage Available (Angus MacLachlan)

Faith-based cinema is as diverse a genre as there is, from the extreme, often violent portraits of devotion from established directors like Martin Scorsese and Mel Gibson, to the attacks on logic in the God’s Not Dead and Left Behind pictures. Angus MacLachlan, a great storyteller of the not-too-deep south, offers a nuanced example of what this genre can bring, returning with the moving Abundant Acreage Available.

Telluride: Cinephiles and Oscar Contenders Mingle in the Mountains

Telluride: Cinephiles and Oscar Contenders Mingle in the Mountains
Maybe it’s the altitude, but the movies just seem better in Telluride, Colo., where the 44th annual Telluride Film Festival wrapped a lineup Monday that included Greta Gerwig’s splendid, semi-autobiographical “Lady Bird”; the best of the recent Churchill biopics, Gary Oldman starrer “Darkest Hour”; and two very different movies about genocide: Angelina Jolie’s Cambodia-set “First They Killed My Father” and Scott Cooper’s expensive, expansive western “Hostiles.”

Still, elevation doesn’t do much to explain why, of the three festivals that kick off the fall season — Venice, Telluride and Toronto — it’s the one with the best track record. Not only has Telluride either world- or U.S.-premiered eight of the past nine Oscar best picture winners (including both “Moonlight” and “La La Land” last year, though technically, only one of those counts), but the ratio of genuine discoveries to cinematic disappointments is impossibly high — an appropriate enough designation for a mountain town
