TIFF 08 - Film Titles released!

The first large batch of titles for TIFF 08 have been announced, the majority of which are North American premieres. The films span over many of the programs: Discovery (7), Contemporary World Cinema (6), Masters (5), Special Presentations (4), Visions (2) and single entries for Vanguard, Real to Reel and Gala. The total Galas released is currently two films as it was previously announced that Passchendaele, written, directed and produced by Paul Gross will open the festival on September 4, 2008. See the Passchendaele trailer here, it got me all teary eyed and patriotic at the same time.

Canadian entries so far are the above mentioned Passchendaele, and Atom Egoyan's Adoration which will be showing as a part of the Special Presentations program. Rounding out the Canadian content is Restless (dir: Amos Kollek) a co-production between Israel/Germany/Canada/France/Belgium and is included in the Contemporary World Cinema program.

I'm thrilled to hear that the South Korean “kimchi western” The Good, The Bad, The Weird (dir: Kim Jee-woon) will be at the festival this year. As I mentioned last week, I've been addicted to the trailer watching it over and over again. I was really hoping it would be at TIFF this year but thought it would be included in the Midnight Madness program, however it is a Gala. Regardless of program, it is thrilling that it will be at the festival!

Many of the announced films are Cannes '08 award winners including: Palme D'or winner Entre les murs (dir: Laurent Cantet) *, Grand Prix winner Gomorrah (dir: Matteo Garrone), Award for Best Screenplay winner Le Silence de Lorna (Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne), Linha de Passe winner for Best Actress: Sandra Corveloni, Un Certain Regard prize winner Tulpan (dir: Sergey Dvortsevoy), Caméra d'or winner Hunger (dir: Steve McQueen).

It is still early days but it is most certainly shaping up to be one exciting year. Looking forward to hearing more titles release but until then here is the complete list of film titles released as of June 26, 2008:

Film Reviews - Family

From the number of reviews you can easily see this isn't a genre I tend to be drawn too.

Family Film definition per Wikipedia: A family film is a film genre that is designed to appeal to a variety of age groups and, thus, families. To attract these diverse audiences, film makers often create works that operate simultaneously on several levels of appeal.[citation needed] Comic songs might appeal to younger children, for example, while wittier jokes and pop culture references attract adults.

I discuss Family Films as a Genre on Episode 18 of the Movie Moxie Podcast if you'd like to hear my take on this genre as a whole from series & franchise to favourites & themes and also review The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

Film Reviews - Mystery

Photobucket

Mystery films as defined by Wikipedia: Mystery film is a sub-genre of the more general category of crime film. It focuses on the efforts of the detective, private investigator or amateur sleuth to solve the mysterious circumstances of a crime by means of clues, investigation, and clever deduction. The successful mystery film adheres to one of two story types, known as Open and Closed. The Closed (or whodunit) mystery conceals the identity of the perpetrator until late in the story, adding an element of suspense during the apprehension of the suspect, as the audience is never quite sure who it is. The Open mystery, in contrast, reveals the identity of the perpetrator at the top of the story, showcasing the "perfect crime" which the audience then watches the protagonist unravel, usually at the very end of the story, akin to the unveiling scenes in the Closed style.

Love mystery films? You are in luck as they feel on the rise. If you want to hear more check out Episode 13 of the Movie Moxie Podcast where I take on Mystery Films as a Genre.

Film Reviews - Crime

Photobucket

Wikipedia definition: Crime films are films which focus on the lives of criminals. The stylistic approach to a crime film varies from realistic portrayals of real-life criminal figures, to the far-fetched evil doings of imaginary arch-villains. Criminal acts are almost always glorified in these movies.
