  • Stars shine on Cannes red carpet
    Thursday May 17th 2012

    Jane Fonda, Eva Longoria and Lana Del Rey were among the famous faces on the red carpet at the opening night gala of this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

  • THE BRIEF: The ghost of an old technology kills at Coachella
    Wednesday May 16th 2012

    In 2012, deceased rapper, Tupac Shakur, gifted child of the Black Panthers, folk poet of West Coast’s Death Row Records, virtually killed at the Coachella Music Festival. 2Pac, wearing only his 6-pac and low riding baggy jeans, thrilled a new audience and stunned his fans when he appeared in a hauntingly reincarnated ‘hologram’ shouting, “What the fu-k is up Coachella?” So lifelike was his performance that The Brief had to conjure an urban legend: what if Tupac is still alive? What if he is actually hiding out in Cuba as some of his fans insist? After all, nobody saw his corpse. And what about Tupac’s prolific posthumous output?

  • Filmmakers, NDP give bad reviews to new film credit
    Thursday May 10th 2012

    Saskatchewan’s new film industry subsidy is being panned by the NDP Opposition and industry representatives. The non-refundable film, TV and digital tax credit, worth about $1 million according to the government, will replace the old film tax credit, worth about $8 million, that was cancelled in the provincial budget as a cost-cutting measure. The new program, announced Friday afternoon, offers a 25 per cent non-refundable tax credit on production costs, but only companies that make a profit will get the money.
