(Cliquez sur le lien pour mieux connaitre les titres) Le premier film de leur sélection est une œuvre inoubliable des années 1980 signée par le brillant réalisateur Neil Jordan. Vous pourriez même vous dire que cet œuvre est aux films gangsters britanniques ce que Mona Lisa est pour l'art classique. Dans la pègre sordide de Londres, George, un petit escroc interprété par Bob Hoskins nous livre ici une performance incroyable d’un ex-détenu réduit à conduire Simone, une Call Girl du West End. Une relation improbable conduira George et sa passagère à parcourir les endroits les plus miteux de la ville à la recherche d'une jeune amie prostituée. MONA LISA a été nomimé pour plusieurs récompenses tout comme Bob Hoskins pour sa performance. Soyez prêt à être ravis est très impressionnés par ce superbe film néo-noir britannique. Présenté en brillant 35mm, cette copie d'archive est la meilleure façon d'apprécier le schéma de couleur appropriée ainsi que du niveau d'exposition comme elles ont été prévues par le réalisateur et son directeur photo.

(Click website link below for the entire line-up) First to kick off the series is MONA LISA, a powerful work from the mid-1980s by brilliant director Neil Jordan. You might say this film is to the British gangster genre what the Mona Lisa is to classical art. Set in London's sleazy criminal underworld, small-time crook George (Bob Hoskins) gives a giant performance as an ex-con reduced to chauffeuring West End call girl Simone (Cathy Tyson) An unlikely relationship blossoms as George finds himself falling in love with his passenger, and together they search the seedy dangerous side of town for her young hooker friend Cathy. MONA LISA was nominated countless awards especially for Bob Hoskins in the leading role. Expect to be thrilled and very impressed by this superb British neo-noir. Offered is a crisp 35mm archival lab print, the best way to see the proper colour scheme and exposure levels as intended by the director and cinematographer.

Doc Circuit Montreal, North America’s only bilingual documentary market, begins this Monday as part of the Montreal International Documentary Festival (RIDM). French editor Nelly Quettier will be the special guest of the event that will unfold until November 20. From year to year, Doc Circuit Montreal confirms itself as the essential gathering for documentary industry professionals. A veritable networking and discussion platform, the event offers the Quebec community the opportunity to interact with international representatives from the industry. This year, Doc Circuit Montreal is announcing an unprecedented number of guests coming from North America and Europe. The event’s guest of honour, French editor Nelly Quettier, will participate in the second edition of the Rough Cut Lab. Having worked with some of the most talented European directors, Nelly Quettier has alternated between documentary and fiction throughout her career, notably collaborating on films by William Klein, Barbet Schroeder (L’avocat de la terreur), Claire Denis (J’ai pas sommeil, Beau travail, Trouble Every Day, Vendredi soir, L’intrus) and, most recently, Leos Carax (Mauvais sang, Les amants du Pont-Neuf, Pola X, Holy Motors). Nelly Quettier will also take part in a “case study” discussion. In a conversation with Helen Faradji, Quettier will unveil her work process and the methods she uses in her creative relationship with directors and their images. Doc Circuit Montreal is also presenting a series of conferences and round tables on themes that reflect the concerns and the interests of the documentary community. These sessions include discussions on digital distribution, audience engagement, crowdfunding, documentary series, festivals as well as a special panel on innovation in the U.K. There will also be a special session organized in conjunction with the RIDM’s Docs 2.0 section to explore how the web can help documentary filmmakers work for social change. For the first time, there will be micro-meet sessions where small groups of delegates can participate in round table discussions with Doc Circuit Montreal guests. The very popular Cuban Hat Pitch is back for a third edition, with over $35,000 in prizes contributed by industry players, including a special award presented by the CBC. The live pitch portion of the competition will feature the five finalists selected by an online voting process. Doc Circuit Montreal’s centrepiece, the One-on-One with decision-makers, will take place in the presence of representatives of Quebec and Canada’s main documentary broadcasters, distributors, festivals and film schools as well as an international delegation. All Doc Circuit Montreal activities will be taking place at the new festival headquarters (3450 Saint-Urbain), where a café space will be open to delegates for breaks and informal meetings.

Workshop Objective: This hands-on workshop on documentary pitching is an opportunity to gain a critical handle on the approach to film-making of one of today’s greatest film documentarians, Adam Curtis. As someone whom producers and directors turn to for shaping big “ideas” and subjects into documentary pitching, treatment and film form, Crooks is inspired by Curtis. Not only is Curtis an essay film master, but as reality TV cuts its ever-widening swath across the non-fictional landscape and undermines demand for traditional documentaries, his approach warrants serious study because the essay film remains an area of documentary film-making that will defy obsolescence.

We will also have a retrospective of NUKUFILM, the famous stop motion animation studio from Estonia, which has been producing films for more than 50 years.

Friday, October 11 @ 7pm (Cineplex Odeon Quartier Latin), Saturday October 19 @ 3pm (Pavillon Judith-Jasmin - old NFB cinema). GITW tells the tale of Lilith, Adam's rebellious first mate as she journeys bck to the Garden of Eden. Julien Fonfrede, Temps 0 programmer describes GITW: "Kephart's visually extravagant take on the Lilith story provokes and destabilizes through its narrative choices (existential wanderings through a phantom world), its understated style and the constant edge of absurdist humour it brings to the ancient story. The story of the world’s first rebel told in the manner of a Bergman-esque road movie."" More info Additional info Image/PDF

  • Posted September 24th, 2013: MFG member RIDM writes: "As part of its 16th edition, from November 13 to 24, the Montreal International Documentary Festival (RIDM) is proud to announce the unveiling of a new interactive installation presented in collaboration with Quartier des Spectacles. Following up its summer series of documentary screenings in parks, the RIDM continues its high-profile public work with a free participatory experience outside Saint-Laurent metro station, at the corner of Saint-Laurent and De Maisonneuve. In the heart of Quartier des Spectacles and just steps away from the RIDM’s new headquarters (on Saint-Urbain at Sherbrooke), and close to the festival’s main venues (Cinéma du Parc, Cinéma Excentris, Cinémathèque québécoise, Cinéma UQAM), the kino pedals will be an interactive experience for everyone, available nightly starting at sunset from November 8 to 24. In front of the Saint-Laurent metro station, the four giant letters of the RIDM’s logo emerge from the ground to form a series of stationary bicycle pedals, the kino pedals. They beckon to inquisitive passers-by, prompting them to stop and participate actively in running the installation. Up to six people can join in to work the playful system of pedals, which drive projectors that play six different documentaries and their soundtracks. The more people are pedalling at once, the better: the experience is only complete if all six sets of pedals are in motion, putting projections on every screen and revealing the entirety of the giant work on the nearby wall. Quebec’s only film festival dedicated to documentaries, the Montreal International Documentary Festival presents the best reality-based films, including the works of established directors and new talents."

The astronomical costs of arming and policing the heavens (more than $200 billion) has largely fallen to the US Air Force, but with China and other nations challenging American supremacy, there is the potential for a war to take place right over our heads."

Children, teens and adults are invited to enjoy a FREE trial acting class, followed by a Q&A session. DATE: Saturday March 16th, 2013. TIME: 3 PM to 5PM. LOCATION: Green Center, 1090 Greene Ave (Metro Atwater). ADMISSION: Free. Josa Maule’s MSOPA invites you to our Open House, where you can participate in a free trial acting classes, ask questions and meet with our staff. The world needs great actors! We always look to our artists to teach us and inspire us, to move us and to make us laugh. Artists have a wonderful job to do and an awesome responsibility! This is why Josa Maule’s MSOPA—with over 20 years of experience—takes the task of training a new generation of actors so seriously. Developing a craft that allows you to be truthful, emotionally alive and that helps you find the courage to express your thoughts on stage is the first step on the path to becoming a great actor. And MSOPA can help you on your way! Not everyone takes acting classes with the intention of becoming an actor; not everyone taking acting classes will become an actor. What is important and sometimes life-changing is the journey an actor takes. Josa Maule has taken over 5000 students on that journey. Many of our actors are committed to the craft, taking every opportunity to develop and hone their skills. Others simply enjoy the artistic outlet, taking advantage of the variety of classes we have to offer both theatre and film enthusiasts. Younger students develop life skills, learning how to use art as a way to overcome shyness or fear. Our children’s and teen classes may begin with groups of timid students, but after several weeks, those same students emerge as confident, articulate individuals who have learned to think creatively and independently as they move forward in all their pursuits. Whether you are a carpenter, a basketball player, or a computer programmer, you know that the more skills you have, the more likely you are to succeed. The same is true for the inspired actor. Constantly working to develop and build one’s craft is the foundation to becoming an actor on the way to greatness. If you are willing to put in the time and the effort needed, then welcome to MSOPA." More info Additional info Image/PDF

  • Posted February 26th, 2013: MFG member Elisa MacLeod/Miranda Mignacca writes: "CASTING CALL FOR STUDENT FOR FILM: "MASQUERADE". Story Description: A woman sits alone in a restaurant, watching those that chatter and clatter around her. She notices the way people move, how they talk, their little quirks and nuances. To her, everyone has a story. But as time ticks on, she realizes that not every story is always told correctly, and that some things are not always what they seem. Please note: This is a silent film that will rest heavily on both the acting of the lead as well as greatly on that of the extras. The process of the film will involve exercises in character development and improvisation for both the lead actress and the extras, and is an opportunity to explore character relations and interaction with all actors. Audition dates: April 12th, April 13th, April 14th from 10:00 a.m to 8:00 p.m. Audition for lead and extras will all require the presentation of a short monologue that will be given to you and a short improvisational scene with another actor. Name: Natascha: Must have blond hair; Any eye colour; Slender frame; Average height(5'6-5'11). While Natascha has few lines, a major component of her character is expressed through body language and most importantly, facial expressions. Her character will be largely explored and created by the actress playing her, and great understanding of inner conflicts and personality will be necessary. EXTRAS: While many extras are needed, they are very much considered to be characters. Actors playing extras will be required to create their own characters and develop personality traits, background stories and story lines for their parts." More info Image/PDF

COST: Suggested donation $2-5 ; SYNOPSIS: The Crisis of Civilization is a documentary feature film investigating how global crises like ecological disaster, financial meltdown, dwindling oil reserves, terrorism and food shortages are converging symptoms of a single, failed global system. Weaving together archival film footage and animations, film-maker Dean Puckett, animator Lucca Benney and international security analyst Dr. Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed – author of A User’s Guide to the Crisis of Civilization: And How to Save It – offer a stunning wake-up call proving that ‘another world’ is not merely possible, but on its way Like the book on which it is based, the film consists of seven parts which explore the interconnected dynamic of global crises of Climate Catastrophe; Peak Energy; Peak Food; Economic Instability; International Terrorism; and the Militarization Tendency – with a final section on The Post-Peak World. The film reveals how a failure to understand the systemic context of these crises, linked to neoliberal ideology, has generated a tendency to deal not with their root structural causes, but only with their symptoms. This has led to the proliferation of war, terror, and state-terror, including encroachment on civil liberties, while accelerating global crises rather than solving them. The real solution, Nafeez argues, is to recognise the inevitability of civilizational change, and to work toward a fundamental systemic transformation based on more participatory forms of living, politically, economically and culturally.

About Divine Interventions: Documentary, Spirituality and Social Justice: Divine Interventions: Documentary, Spirituality and Social Justice explores the role spirituality, religion and secularism play in fostering or inhibiting a plurality of perspectives, understanding across cultural, religious, and ethnic borders, and participation in social causes. This screening initiative starts in inclusive spaces where audiences, artists and activists interrogate the intersection of spirituality and social justice, and subsequently moves on to a sustained online conversation with the aim of fostering engaged communities across geographic barriers.

For filmmakers making paid submissions, we offer feedback when and where appropriate; we present their short films to our film industry partners including producers, distributors and programmers - this has led to short films being presented on TV, licensed for outdoor festivals and programmed by other film festivals who view us an expert on short films by young filmmakers. With your paid submission, you also gain privileged access to watch, vote and be inspired by great short films from young filmmakers around the world. We present awards in 12 categories including Best Picture, Best Animated Film, Best Documentary and Best Short Short Film (film under five minutes). Anyone interested in watching or voting for great films can support the festival and subscribe. (Currently, that gives you access to more than 400 short films.) Every month, beginning in January, we will have a new slate of films to vote on. You can also watch and vote for FREE for the films in our 2013 Repechage or second chance film gallery. Filmmakers can submit their films online HERE! Send us your films under 30 minutes long by filmmakers under 30 years old! Our Early-Bird deadline is January 31st. It is cheaper to submit before January 31st and, as always, the earlier that you submit, the better your chance for your film to be accepted. Our regular deadline for the Festival is March 31st, but we accept films until June 15th. We announce our Top 100 International Short Films in July and program them in Montreal, the last week of September 2013." More info Additional info

Director Anand Patwardhan will be in attendance for a post-screening discussion. SYNOPSIS: After the 1997 police shooting of 10 unarmed Dalit (formerly known as Untouchable) protesters and bystanders in Mumbai’s slums, the community’s rage over their 2,000 years of oppression boils over. For one man, singer, poet and activist, Vilas Ghogre, it’s more than he can bear; filled with despair over the pain and grief of his people, he hangs himself. Compelled by this tragedy, award-winning activist and documentarian Anand Patwardhan focuses his keen lens on the atrocities committed against the Dalits in this magnum opus 14 years in the making, incorporating their voice through their stirring resistance music and poetry. Denied basic human rights for centuries, condemned to clean the filth of the upper caste for pennies a day, then abhorred as lesser beings, the Dalit struggle is deftly counterbalanced by intimate family portraits, moments of inspiration, perseverance and glimpses of a better future.

SYNOPSIS: The injustice of solitary confinement and the transformative power of art are explored in Herman’s House, a feature documentary that follows the unlikely friendship between a New York artist and one of America’s most famous inmates as they collaborate on an acclaimed art project. In 1972, New Orleans native Herman Joshua Wallace (b. 1941) was serving a 25-year sentence for bank robbery when he was accused of murdering an Angola Prison guard and thrown into solitary confinement. Many believed him wrongfully convicted. Appeals were made but Herman remained in jail and—to increasingly widespread outrage—in solitary. Years passed with one day much like the next. Then in 2001 Herman received a perspectiveshifting letter from a Jackie Sumell, a young art student, who posed the provocative question: What kind of house dows a man who has lived in a six-foot-by-nine-foot cell for 30 years dream of?"

C/FS has brought in two musicians from Montreal band ‘Sweet Mother Logic’ to accompany the great silent German horror film on piano, cello and church organ in a magnificent gothic church. It will be preceded by a screening with live music of another silent horror classic, THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI (1920) followed by an intermission (with snacks and drinks available).

Doors open at 7:30pm, the projector rolls at 8pm. The venue can be found at 4695 deMaisonneuve West, a few blocks east of metro Vendôme." More info Additional info

While the series has been produced, with around sixty hours of raw film, the lack of financing has prevented the project from entering into the post-production phase of developement. The initial response to the pilot episode has largely been favorable but contingent on the ability to deliver a full season of programming - a series of six one-hour episodes. (But talk is cheap and there are no guarantees nor firm commitments on their behalf that it will be picked up at a later date.)

The predominance of Jews in the film industry provides other insights into contemporary Jewry. Through film clips and discussion, we will learn how filmmakers created and packaged their own unique concept of the Jew, as filtered through their own consciousness.

If you are a real fan of old classic movies from the Golden Age of Hollywood, you would love CINEFEST in Syracuse New York. I have been attending for 15 years now and can’t wait to go back this year. It features 4 days of screenings of films from the silent era to the early 1950’s all on glorious 16mm and 35mm. All silent films are accompanied by live piano. This year, I had planned to go with someone but they had to back out because they just secured a full time job at the NFB. That leaves me with room in my car and room at the really nice Holiday Inn (2 Queen size beds and a fridge) What‘s great is that the screenings take place in the very large conference space of the hotel itself. Nice big movie screen and free popcorn too! Tons of interesting people attend including academics, students, authors, historians, cinephiles and even Leonard Maltin. Reps from George Eastman House, Museum Of Modern Art and The British Film Institute are there as well. Not to mention a huge dealer’s room with tons of DVDs, books, vintage posters and 16mm prints. If interested, I am offering a lift there and back, a pass to the four days of screenings and three nights of accommodation for only $250 for one person or $350 for a couple.

To mark the event, we will be hosting an exclusive screening of 'The Saga of Murdo MacLeod', a short film directed and animated by G. Scott MacLeod, with narration by Mike Burns, a celebrated Montreal storyteller. Expelled from their land on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland, Murdo MacLeod and his clan are given passage as ballast on a timber ship bound for Lower Canada. It is the late 1830s. Those who survive the voyage arrive in Quebec City with nothing more than axes in hand and speaking only Gaelic amongst the French and English population. Travelling on foot, they make their way to the region near Sherbrooke, ending up on Abenaki territory near Gould. There, with winter fast approaching, they find their only hope for survival in the hands of Canada’s first people. Saturday, March 17, 7:30-10:30pm, Coop la Maison verte, 5785 rue Sherbrooke ouest."
