Clickin' for Love

Director: Pablo Pappano.
Is the world of online dating full of those who can’t survive in the real dating world? What is the average person’s experience? Do most people find their true love and end up as living, breathing eHarmony commercials, or do most give up in disappointment? After using Craigslist to find people willing to do on-camera interviews about their online dating experiences, I quickly discovered that many people had a lot in common—especially their larger-than-life personalities. Audrey is a forty-something would-be actress who fell in love with a mysterious South African boat captain. Marty is an affable, middle-aged father-of-three and swinger with a “black book” containing thousands of names who hopes to find a wife online. Colleen is a single chef who doesn’t want either a one night stand or a boyfriend. She wants something in between. Thirty-something Andy uses online dating and matchmakers but hasn’t found that special someone. Although he did find a woman who, on their first date, offered him $100,000 to father her child. After recording all of these insightful - and sometimes crazy - stories about the world of online dating, I knew I had a fantastic and original movie to make. Internet dating has been around for more than a decade, but it still isn't clear whether online dating really works. Is “happily ever after” a realistic goal for online daters? Find out by watching Clickin' for Love.

11th LA Polish Fest conects with Hollywood

user
by Alex Deleon The Los Angeles film festival calendar is so crowded that three of them have currently been running in overlapping juxtaposition. The LA Indian film festival and the LA Polish film festival both started on the same day, April 20, but the Indian one only lasted six days leaving another six days to catch up with the second half of the Polish action. There is also an Asian festival going on simultaneously in Koreatown, but since it is physically impossible to be everywhere at once, ...

Branchage Festival 2009

Jersey film festival to screen The Wizard of Oz in magical drive-in cinema experience

- The Wizard of Oz screened People’s Park Oct 3rd

- As part of Branchage, taking place Oct 1st – 4th

Branchage Jersey International Film Festival is coming back to the island in October, screening an incredible selection of films in breathtaking

and unusual locations.

Highlights for 2009’s festival will include a spectacular drive-in-cinema showing seminal Judy Garland classic The Wizard Of Oz, a screening of this year’s most shocking film Lars Von Trier’s Antichrist and British Sea Power performing their poignant soundtrack to the renowned 1934 fisherman film Man of Aran.

Branchage Jersey International Film Festival has an unbeatable range of films being screened in truly breathtaking locations, including a beautiful drive-in screening of The Wizard Of Oz at People’s Park on the island, a truly terrifying screening of Antichrist in a scary hut in the Jersey woods and an incredible performance by British Sea Power to the classic black & white fisherman film Man of Aran.

The festival launched in 2008 as a vibrant cross-arts film festival that transformed a number of Jersey’s well recognised landmarks and changed them into unusual screening venues.

Venues secured for the 2009 festival include: Mount Orgueil Castle, Jersey Museum Cinema, The Town Hall/Magistrates Courts, The War Tunnels, Victoria College Boys School Hall, Jersey Opera House. There’ll also be screenings inside the spectacular Barclays Wealth Spiegeltent, plus an incredible drive-in screening at People’s Park.

Branchage aims to create new cinema-going experiences by holding screenings at unusual, atmospheric locations - bringing people into environments they wouldn't usually associate with film, and hand-picking the perfect films to screen in these breathtaking locations.

The festival is also giving a total of £10,000 in awards for filmmakers, across a range of categories.

Festival director Xanthe Hamilton said: “Rolling off the success of the first year Branchage is back in 2009 with even more gusto. This year we have really honed our programming style, and with even more unusual venues we will be taking films into fitting and interesting spaces, offering our audiences a whole new cinema experience.

“The film programme is vast and diverse, and this year we have a very strong educational and industry strand and in true Branchage style a heavy helping of live music and party madness. This year we are proud to be inviting several filmmakers from around the world to present their films in Jersey, and we are exited about our new partnerships with the US based True/False Documentary Film Festival and a radio show coming live out of the festival on air in New Jersey and New York.”

Charles Busch: From Drag Artist To Film Director

Thursday, November 2------Film directors always have a colorful history. Some come from film school. Some come from advertising. Some come from other industries entirely. But there are not too many that can claim that they first found fame as a drag artist. Well, that is how Charles Busch became a household name (at least in my household) for his campy portrayals of glamourous women on the verge of a nervous breakdown (to borrow a title from another queen of camp melodrama). Busch is, in the...
