ABSTRACT: As today's Lisa Tolliver Show promos indicated, today's topics were the Tribeca Film Festival 2006 (TFF) and Mother's Day.
Cinematographer, Director, Writer, Consultant Emanuel Rund--in town selecting films for the Filmfest München) 2006--and Danbury News film critic Joseph Dimyan, Esq. joined me on the electronic "stage" known as the Lisa Tolliver Show to discuss the TFF. We also addressed some other film festivals of interest and shared a key resource for anything and everything you'd like to know (and more) about film festivals worldwide. FilmFestivals.com (Non-stop festivals), describes itself as a:
Searchable database of international film and television festivals. Listings include news, articles, interviews, film details, and multimedia.
Major film festivals worldwide with daily news, movie info, columns, and city guides.
If you fall into the latter category, the tools at FilmFestivals.com are especially valuable for selecting, prioritizing, and booking festival arrangements as well as for watching some movies online. You might also be interested in some recommendations we made on air for upcoming film festivals accessible in New York City. Filmmaker Emanuel's direction is the Sundance Institute at BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) scheduled for May 11-21. Sundance, he said off the air, is one of the most important film festivals and screening and winning awards there opens many doors for filmmakers. Attorney Joseph made the case for attending the May 5-June 15 B Noir film festival at Film Forum. ("Click here for the "film noir" definition.) The broadcaster in the bunch suggested that those with cable TV check out the month-long Turner Classic Movies festival entitled, "Race & Hollywood: Black Images on Film." Additionally, film enthusiasts might enjoy watching the TFF online film shorts and other goodies that are the next best thing to being there. One can also watch movies at other film festival sites and at FilmFestivalsTV.com.
Upcoming Lisa Tolliver Show broadcasts will feature additional filmfest reportage from people with various roles throughout the filmfest pipeline. Examples include additional guest spots from Emanuel and Joseph, exhibitors and performers in the Tribeca Family Festival Street Fair, Director and real-life "Sci-Fi Boy" Paul Davids, Seed magazine writer Pam Grossman, and more!
