Great Moments in Horror Actressing: Margot Kidder

"This genre gives actresses some really juicy lines and roles,but denies them the acclaim that comes from more 'serious' roles.Kidder was a gifted actress who was indelible in a few films."-Lady Edith

"She won a Genie for it - because Canadians have great taste!"-Mike in Canada

Cannes Begins: Iñárritu and His Jury Arrive

by Nathaniel R

The 72nd edition of the world's most famous festival has officially begun.We'll try to bring you comprehensive daily coverage by astral projecting ourselves across the ocean (i.e.watching online videos from France and following critics on Twitter).Earlier today the president of this year's main jury Alejandro González Iñárritu arrived with his gender-balanced fellow jurors in tow (or "classmates,"as Maimouna N'Diaye so charmingly put it in the preference conference)...

The 2019 Cannes President is... Iñárritu

Iñarritu winning Best Director at Cannes in 2006.Now that Oscar season is winding down,tuxes/jewels returned,post-mortems wrapping up,we must start looking forward.The first big post Oscar event of the film year,that's not a film opening that is,is of course the Cannes Film Festival (May 14th-25th).They've now announced this year's jury president.It's none other than four-time Oscar winner Alejandro González Iñárritu (Birdman,Babel,The Revenant,Amores Perros) continuing Oscar's obsessive"¡Viva México!"theme,with five of the last six directing Oscars going to Mexican filmmakers.亚博主页

Iñárritu succeeds Cate Blanchett,2018's Jury President.Though its common for film directors to preside,he's the first Mexican ever chosen for the honors.He previously won Best Director at Cannes forBabel(2006)...

Abe's Sundance 2019 Wrap

Abe Fried-Tanzer closing out his Sundance coverage for TFE.Thanks,Abe!

Holliday Grainger and Alia Shawkat in ANIMALS (2019)

The Sundance Film Festival is officially over,closing out a busy week and a half of nonstop movies.I managed to catch 46 titles this year,most of which I enjoyed.Among them were the Grand Jury Prize winners from the U.S.Dramatic Competition,Clemency,and the World Cinema Dramatic Competition,The Souvenir,both of which werewritten up by Murtada.While I appreciated both of those films,here are my choices for BEST of the fest in various categories...

Sundance Short Film Winners - clues to *next"year's Oscar list?

by Nathaniel R

Sheila Vand at SundanceWe hope you've been enjoying our coverage of Sundance this year.Our two men on the ground (Murtada and Abe) havealready reviewed 10 films.Sundance wraps up next Sunday,February 3rd but we've already got our first bit of award news.A three person jury comprised of Iranian-American actressSheila Vand(We the Animals,A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night),Obie award-winning playwright/filmmakerYoung Jean Lee, and filmmakerCarter Smith(who won at Sundance 12 years ago for his gay shortBugcrush),have picked the winning shorts of the festival.Six of the seven films honored were by people of color,five were from women,and two from filmmakers who identify as LGBTQ.(Yes,Sundance has made huge diversity efforts these past few years...and they've put their money where their mouth is,both in their film selections and in press badges,even subsidizing minority journalists to combat the inequities in entertainment journalism).

Sundance is an Oscar-qualifying festival which means you might hear about a few of these shorts next year about this time if they're very lucky...

TIFF 2018 Finale.Jury of One: Nathaniel

OKAY WRAPPING UP TIFF NOW.Unless you are on an actual jury at a festival,you see a different set of films than everyone else attending (with a handful of crossovers) so I couldn't corral votes with my festival roomies (Nick,Joe,and Chris --instead we did a podcast).So I thought it might be fun to share my favorites from the festival in 'nominee' Oscar style.These are not,of course,Oscar predictions or even Film Bitch ballots because not all of the films are guaranteed eligibility this year and we've had 8 months of good movies before these and we'll have 3 months of hopefully good movies afterwards that they'll have to compete with.But here's the achievements within traditional awards categories that thrilled me most at TIFF during that29 film screening marathon.

They're listed in alpha order (by film) except the actors (by name) and links go to our festival reviews if we managed one -- a few more reviews are half written but we need to wrap up TIFF so expect more onA Star is Born,Beautiful Boy,Border,and more soon as they'll be in theaters within the next few weeks.


"Roma"is rich with endless details and emotional punch

Runners up:Cold War(Poland)

Lots more after the jump including best performances,best visuals,best dogs (yes,really),best original songs and more...

Queer Roundup at GAZE International Film Festival

bySeán McGovern.

Last weekend I had the absolute pleasure of being invited to Dublin,Ireland to be on a jury of my queers at the 26thGAZE: International LGBT Film Festival.While it was fun to be back in MY HOME COUNTRY,it was even better to see such a diverse and compelling programme.After the jump a special spotlight on LGBT docs and the short film winners (and one spectacular narrative feature) which will be hopefully making it to a film festival near you soon.Don't forget to support queer cinema AND your local dive bar...
