Karlovy Vary head Karel Och on the challenge of hosting a festival between Cannes and Venice

Karlovy Vary head Karel Och on the challenge of hosting a festival between Cannes and Venice
Och was disappointed to miss out on Robert Eggers’ ‘The Lighthouse’.

Karel Och, artistic director of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, has said the event misses out on prestige arthouse titles due to its position in the calendar between Cannes and Venice.

“There are certain films, especially from the Us, which might look on first gaze as more arthouse or festival,” Och told Screen. “But then they might be a success at Sundance or in Cannes, and the Us distributor decides to freeze the film for the summer and launch it in the States and everywhere else in the autumn.

Final Farewells/New Beginnings at the Viennale

  • MUBI
Introduzione all'oscuroVienna during the final week of October and early November: the days get noticeably shorter (it’s dark already!), the inner city is all aflutter with autumn winds, wilting leaves and that sinking feeling slowly sets in that yet another year is somehow already nearing its end. And while this may induce in some a tendency towards a perfectly reasonable cynicism about how all things inevitably expire, it can also prompt in others an equally sensible optimism about all the new things to come. For me at this year’s Viennale—one of those film festivals where to attend truly feels like a gift rather than a chore—the sense was definitely that of the latter. If the 2017 edition was overshadowed, if not haunted, by the unexpected death of its beloved festival director Hans Hurch, who was at the helm of the festival for two decades, this year, under

Exclusive Trailer for Gastón Solnicki’s ‘Introduzione all’oscuro’ Pays Tribute to a Late Cineaste

With an eye for indelible visuals like few other directors working today, Argentinian helmer Gastón Solnicki is returning to the Venice International Film Festival two years after his remarkable breakthrough feature Kékszakállú. With Introduzione all’oscuro, which premieres at the festival tomorrow before heading to Nyff, he pays tribute to the late Hans Hurch, director of the Vienna International Film Festival (and former assistant to Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet). Hurch passed away last summer, resulting in Solnicki to mourn in what promises to be a fascinating, tender, and abstract cinematic love letter.

Solnicki has said in a director’s statement, “This is a film in which I wish to honor my dear friend Hans Hurch, who passed away recently in Rome. A film inspired by the tenderness and the humor that made our bond so special. A very spontaneous fiction, inspired by a large variety of sources. We conceived

Dysfuction Is the New Normal: Close-Up on "So Long Enthusiasm"

Close-Up is a feature that spotlights films now playing on Mubi. Vladimir Durán's So Long Enthusiasm (2017), which is receiving an exclusive global online premiere on Mubi, is showing from July 5 - August 4, 2018 as a Special Discovery.It’s become almost commonplace to observe that Kafka’s novella Metamorphosis isn’t about an ugly-looking bug, but instead about the inner workings of a family in a time of crisis. When we can’t depend on the support of others, what personal inner resources might we reveal?A similar question drives the Colombian filmmaker Vladimir Durán’s feature debut, So Long Enthusiasm (2017), in which members of a tight-knit family—three sisters in their 20s and an eleven-year-old boy, Axel (Camilo Castiglione)—find themselves cooped up in their apartment in Buenos Aires, with guests and friends coming and going, as their mother, Margarita (Rosario Bléfari) convalesces, locked up in her bedroom.“Dysfunctional

New to Streaming: ‘The Great Buddha+,’ ‘Come Sunday,’ ‘Kékszakállú,’ ‘Borg vs. McEnroe,’ and More

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.

Borg vs. McEnroe (Janus Metz)

Juan Martin del Potro just ruined the match-up everyone wanted to see at the 2017 Us Open—a semi-final pitting Rafa Nadal against Roger Federer. Despite both being in their thirties, their rivalry has never stopped. What’s intriguing, however, is how amiable it has always been (or seemed to be). With the quieter Pete Sampras and emotional Andre Agassi a generation earlier, the same

Limits and Liberties: Close-Up on "Kékszakállú"

  • MUBI
Gastón Solnicki's Kékszakállú (2016) is having its exclusive online premiere on Mubi. It is showing from April 10 - May 10, 2018.Who imagined, planned, and built the spaces we inhabit? How many people participated in the process and how many hours did it take them to culminate each building? What purposes did they seek to give us? Which of those purposes were meant solely for the spaces themselves? How many of these people’s own needs and purposes were renounced for the comfort and leisure of others? I suspect that these are some of the interrogations that start exploding as bombs in the mind of Laila (Laila Maltz) towards the final moments of Kékszakállú, Argentinian filmmaker Gastón Solnicki’s third feature film. “I often recognize that we are not capable of looking at what we have in front of us unless it’s placed within a frame,” said Abbas Kiarostami. In Kékszakállú,

We’ve downsized the selection to 16 projects in order to give each project more care and attention. The projects now start preparations a month in advance with a specially appointed mentor.

Additionally, CineMart presents a new format called Spotlight, in which the project teams and their mentors discuss each project publicly for all CineMart guests.

Out of 16 selected projects (from 400 submissions) the juries selected four award winners.
