Fallbrook Film Festival - The Frank Capra Award- Call For Films

http://www.fallbrookfilmfestival.com/

 

https://www.withoutabox.com/01festival/01t_acc/01t_acc_edit.php?festival_id=6206

 

Located in Southern California, Fallbrook and its surrounding communities is a beehive of creative energies: artists, sculptors, writers, actors, musicians, dancers, designers, and filmmakers. In 2006, the non-profit Fallbrook Film Factory was formed to foster filmmaking activities similar to community theatre, and out of that the Fallbrook International Film Festival evolved, now entering its fifth season. Fallbrook was also the family home to one of Hollywood’s all-time filmmaking legends Frank Capra during the height of his filmmaking career. To that aim, we have been most fortunate to gain the support of the Capra family, allowing us to host a very special award in his name. And this year, due to the strong support from the Hollywood stunt community, we are adding Action Films as an award category and workshops with top stunt directors, reveling this hidden art of filmmaking.

Both Ingmar Bergman and Orson Welles called him their favorite director. On set, John Wayne called him “Coach”. Jimmy Stewart referred to him simply as “Boss”.

And from June 7th to 10th, Ford fans and scholars will converge on Dublin for the inaugural John Ford Ireland Film Symposium, organized by the Iris...

Review of official selection film "Lawless"

user
    I saw "Lawless" last night at La Licorne theatre in Cannes La Boca. Directed by John Hillcoat, "Lawless" is an official selection film in the Cannes Film Festival. While the film was captivating and kept you turning your head in fear, and disgust, throughout, it left you feeling little for it and thinking nothing of it. Lawless is based on the Bondurant brothers, who lived in Franklin Country, Virginia during the Depression. The Bondurant...

Jordan Todorov: “The most successful Bulgarian in Hollywood, we’ve never heard of”

user
Let’s start with that – what do actually Stephen Aposolof’s “dirty movies” mean? Once this type of movies that Apostolof has made, were called “dirty movies” – that is to be distinguished from pornography, which precisely in those years (early ‘70s) invaded the American cinema. Somehow all these films enliven the atmosphere – such were the times: the 60s, experiments with various drugs, rock music... This was a free time and this type of erotic films, called s...
