It’s not quite as conducive anymore but still I think that is ...

SFF 2020 outside one of the theaters in Park City, Utah   Activists on main street in Park City, Utah By James Nelson Sold out is the common refrain at the Sundance Film Festival but there are still ways to secure a ticket once the movies start rolling.

Weihnachtsfilmfestival Berlin: Another Fun-filled Year with Christmas Treats

(Still from We Will Survive, © Nele Dehlenkamp 2018)    This year's Weihnachtfilmfestival in Berlin was another success even if the audience turnout was not as big as the previous year. Perhaps more Berliners chose to stay at home with their family and friends this Christmas rather than venture out to the cinema. Sadly, I was one of those who was not able to make it to more screenings of this Christmas film festival's eclectic offerings.  One section that I en...
