  • Cannes Film Festival charges Canadian journalists to interview stars such as Brad Pitt
    Thursday May 24th 2012

    Interviews with Hollywood’s top stars can be staid affairs. Reined in by a host of publicists and PRs, very rarely do they let slip anything of great interest. But now Canadian journalists at the Cannes Film Festival have been told they must pay for the privilege. In a move Toronto’s[…]

  • ReelWorld Film Festival: No Look Pass
    Thursday May 24th 2012

    No Look Pass was one of the feature documentaries presented as part of this year’s ReelWorld Film Festival. A five day annual event founded in 2001 by actress Tonya Lee Williams, the festival was as a direct response to the lack of positive diverse stories on screen and sustainable opportunities for emerging talent of colour trying to break into the Canadian entertainment industry. Dedicated to promoting and fostering racially and culturally diverse artists who are emerging within the film industry, the festival offers a diverse program of features, documentaries, animations, shorts, and music videos that all work toward changing the face of Canadian cinema.

  • Hey Publishers, Time to Increase Your Video Ad Load
    Wednesday May 23rd 2012

  • Cannes 2012: Buyers Get Early Jump on Market
    Tuesday May 22nd 2012

    More and more, dealmaking is underway before a film market even starts. That trend is abundantly apparent this year in Cannes, where several major pacts were closed prior to the official launch of the Marche du Film on Thursday. On Tuesday, two key deals were announced for IM Global and Alliance Films’ Ends of the Earth, with CBS Films snapping up domestic rights and Sony Pictures Acquisitions buying rights to multiple international territories. SPA, a major market force these days, picked up rights in markets including German-speaking Europe, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, Italy, Australia/New Zealand, Latin America and South Africa.

  • David Cronenberg sides with digital: ‘I have no particular affection for film whatsoever’
    Tuesday May 22nd 2012

    David Cronenberg unequivocally offered his stance on the movie industry’s move away from film and towards digital today, telling the Toronto Sun at the Cannes Film Festival that “it’s about time that film died its natural death and it’s doing that.” The seasoned filmmaker (director of movies like The Fly,[…]
