Chris Fujiwara set to be Artistic Director for EIFF for another three years

Edinburgh International Film Festival (EIFF) has announced the continuation of Artistic Director Chris Fujiwara’s tenure, initially for a further three years. The appointment was announced following 2012’s successful EIFF that saw admissions of just over 40,000 across the 12-day event.

 

The 66th EIFF, Fujiwara’s first Festival as Artistic Director, hosted an international programme with 120 diverse new feature films, alongside two retrospectives, shorts programmes, a full industry programme, talent development labs, education initiatives and special events. Fujiwara also oversaw the return of the Michael Powell and International Awards to the Festival, as well as high-profile red carpet premieres at Edinburgh’s Festival Theatre.

 

Commenting on his future at EIFF, Chris Fujiwara said: “Working on this year’s EIFF has been one of the most challenging and fulfilling experiences of my career. The interest and enthusiasm of the Festival audience and the dedication and professionalism of the Festival staff and volunteers have transformed my view of the importance cinema can hold in people’s lives. I’m deeply grateful to the Board for their confidence in me, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to expand our relationships with our audiences and with international filmmakers, distributors and sales agents. I’m very excited about working to shape the future of EIFF.”

 

On behalf of the EIFF Board which confirmed the appointment, Chair, Leslie Hills said: “EIFF is an institution with a reputation for reinvention over decades. Chris Fujiwara gave us a superb reinvention in EIFF 2012. Chris, along with the excellent support of staff and volunteers delivered, with his signature intelligence, knowledge and humour, a multi-faceted programme which engaged filmgoers and professionals, students and critics alike. We are utterly delighted that he has accepted our offer to build on this very promising first edition. “

Winners announced at Edinburgh International Film Festival awards ceremony

The 66th Edinburgh International Film Festival announced the winners of this year’s awards. The Award for Best Film in the International Feature Competition was won by HERE, THEN, which received its World Premiere at EIFF. The Jury gave a Special Mention to PAPIROSEN by Gastón Solnicki. 

 

The Jury citation read: “The Jury acknowledges the festival and its Artistic Director, Chris Fujiwara, for an outstanding, challenging and brave selection of films that included both fiction and documentaries and enabled us to watch the best of the world’s new cinema. Every work we had the privilege to see brought something new and extraordinary to us and choosing the best was a difficult task. After the final deliberations the jury unanimously decided to give the main prize to HERE, THEN by Mao Mao that had its World Premiere here at the EIFF. The special mention goes to the documentary PAPIROSEN by Gastón Solnicki from Argentina. PAPIROSEN is a real paradigm for why cinema remains relevant. There is beauty, pain and urgency in this film. For humanity to survive, the world must not forget. This film tells us that the greatest struggle of man is the struggle for the truth.”

 

Director Penny Woolcock was awarded The Michael Powell Award for Best British Feature Film  for her film ONE MILE AWAY which also received its World Premiere at the Festival.  Woolcock said: “ONE MILE AWAY is about transforming and saving lives. Winning the Michael Powell award is a tremendous boost for us to help get the film and its message out to where it needs to be in our inner cities.”

 

 The Jury citation read: “ONE MILE AWAY by Penny Woolcock is a brave and honest film tackling a huge problem with sensitivity and skill, not only charting the efforts to reconcile a community but also showing the great wealth of creativity that is part of that struggle. We are delighted to be able to recognise such a singular achievement.

 

ANDREA RISEBOROUGH and BRÍD BRENNAN jointly won Awards for Best Performance in a British Feature Film for their performances in James Marsh’s SHADOW DANCER, which had its UK Premiere last night.

 

In the shorts category, DINOSAUR EGGS IN THE LIVING ROOM by Rafael Urban (Brazil) won Best Film in the International Short Film Competition as voted for by Jury members Erwin Houtenbrink, Programme Consultant for the International Film Festival Bratislava, actor Ewen Bremner, and Javier Porta Fouz, Programmer of the Buenos Aires International Festival of Independent Cinema.

 

In addition to the Best Film in International Short Film Competition Award, the Jury also commended two other films. The first Special Mention went to CARBON, directed by Craig Webster. Picking up two awards was director Will Anderson for his film THE MAKING OF LONGBIRD for which he won both Best Film in the British Short Film Competition and The McLaren Award for New British Animation. The Jury also gave a special acting commendation to TOM PHILLIPS in FUN TIMES by Joe Carter. The Student Critics Jury Award was awarded to Jang Kun-jae’s SLEEPLESS NIGHT.

The 66th Edinburgh International Film Festival opens with William Friedkin’s KILLER JOE and closes with the European premiere of Disney/Pixar’s BRAVE.

Killer Joe Set To Kick Off 66th Edinburgh International Film Festival

The Edinburgh International Film Festival (EIFF) announced today that William Friedkin’s thriller KILLER JOE will be the Opening Gala at the 66th edition of the Festival on Wednesday, 20 June. The film stars Matthew McConaughey, Emile Hirsch, Juno Temple, Gina Gershon and Thomas Haden Church.

 

22 year-old Chris Smith (Emile Hirsch: INTO THE WILD; MILK) is a drug dealer down on his luck, but things are about to go from bad to worse when he hires the unexpectedly charming hit man Killer Joe (Matthew McConaughey: THE LINCOLN LAWYER; HOW TO LOSE A GUY IN 10 DAYS; A TIME TO KILL) to murder his own mother for her $50,000 life insurance policy. With barely a dollar to his name Chris agrees to offer up his younger sister, Dottie (Juno Temple: upcoming DIRTY GIRL; THE DARK KNIGHT RISES; ATONEMENT), as sexual collateral in exchange for Joe’s services until he receives the insurance money.  That is, if it ever does come in.

 

Chris Fujiwara, EIFF Artistic Director, said: “We’re delighted to be opening this year’s Festival with KILLER JOE. For my first year as Artistic Director, I intend to deliver a diverse programme that will spotlight filmmaking of real artistic distinction. William Friedkin’s exhilarating, intense, and brilliantly crafted film is absolutely in keeping with this ambition.”

 

The film will have its UK premiere at Edinburgh’s Festival Theatre on Wednesday, 20 June, with William Friedkin and cast in attendance, and will open nationwide on 29 June.

 

KILLER JOE director William Friedkin said:  “KILLER JOE is about the Good and Evil in everyone, the struggle for our better angels to triumph over our demons. Often lost. The thin line between the policeman and the criminal. It’s also a riff on the Cinderella story, wherein she finds her prince, but he turns out to be a hired killer. I would also like to thank the Edinburgh International Film Festival for honouring our film with this screening, uncut. Of a film the Motion Picture Association of America has expressed a desire to censor.”

 

KILLER JOE will be released on 29 June. As previously announced, EIFF’s Closing Gala will be the European premiere of Disney-Pixar’s BRAVE on 30 June. The EIFF runs from 20 June to 1 July 2012.

Shinji Somai EIFF Retrospective

This year’s Edinburgh International Film Festival Retrospective will be the works of Japanese director Shinji Somai. The films of Shinji Somai (1948-2001) are a constant source of inspiration for Japanese filmmakers. His body of work spans the 1980s and 1990s, a period in Japanese film history that remains little explored by Western film scholars and largely inaccessible to Western audiences. Yet without an understanding of this period, and of Somai’s significance, it is impossible to understand the transition from the golden age of Japanese studio filmmaking to the recent explosion of personal, independent filmmaking in Japan.

A unique stylist in a variety of popular genres, Somai made films that were well received in Japan by both critics and the general public. Among the films to screen at EIFF will be SAILOR SUIT AND MACHINE GUN (1981); P.P. RIDER (1983); THE CATCH (1983); TYPHOON CLUB (1985); MOVING (1993); THE FRIENDS (1994) and WAIT AND SEE (1998). Further Retrospective titles will be announced at a later date.

Chris Fujiwara, EIFF Artistic Director, said: “Shinji Somai is one of the most personal and original Japanese filmmakers, and a master whose work has been almost completely neglected outside Japan. Just over ten years after his passing, I believe the time is right for Somai. Audiences and critics will be amazed by what they discover in this body of work, which I’m delighted to bring to the UK.”

Kanako Hayashi, director of TOKYO FILMeX, collaborator on the Retrospective with EIFF, said: “Last November, TOKYO FILMeX held a full retrospective of Shinji Somai’s films at the 10th anniversary of his passing. A large audience, including our filmmaker guests from abroad, enjoyed them a lot. He was one of the most important filmmakers in Japan at the end of the 20th century, and his films should be introduced all over the world at present, just as if he were continuing to make films today. (In fact, Somai was just one year younger than Takeshi Kitano.) I urge lovers of film not to miss this chance to follow Somai’s unique artistic trajectory throughout his works at Edinburgh.”

Disney/Pixar’s Brave set to close the 66th Edinburgh International Film Festival

Disney/Pixar’s Scotland-set animated film, Brave, is to have its European premiere on the closing night of the Edinburgh International Film Festival  on 30 June.

The film features mostly a Scottish cast, including Billy Connolly, Kelly MacDonald, Kevin McKidd, Robbie Coltrane and Craig Ferguson. Previously known as The Bear and the Bow, the movie follows Merida, an impetuous princess who defies an age-old custom and inadvertently unleashes chaos, forcing her to discover the meaning of true bravery before it is too late.

First Minister Alex Salmond announced news of the premiere during his speech at VisitScotland’s Winning Years Conference in Perth today.

He said: “This will present us with an immense opportunity when Scotland will be centre stage in the film with all the tourism and business opportunities this will bring.

“I fully expect that as the film launches across the world, so will awareness of Scotland increase.”

He added: “Brave will be the most high-profile film ever set in, and themed around, Scotland, featuring Scottish stars.

“We are looking at a film which comes from the award-winning team behind such box-office smashes as Toy Story, Finding Nemo and Up, and will create global buzz when it is released.”

The film premiere announcement comes days after VisitScotland revealed it has joined forces with Disney Pixar in a campaign designed to promote Scottish tourism across the world and boost the Scottish economy.

Chris Fujiwara, artistic director of the Edinburgh International Film Festival, said: “We’re delighted to host the premiere of Brave and continue the festival’s long relationship with Disney.

“Though we are an international film festival, we’re mindful that we have a special responsibility to Scotland’s cinematic image.

“It makes perfect sense that this film, which is so strongly tied to the cultural mythology of Scotland and the beauty of the Scottish landscape, and in which Scottish talent has such a significant involvement, should be part of our festival.”

Brave is to be released across the UK on 17 August.

The Good, The Bad & The Ugly 2011

 

Well, it was a yet again another bad year for movies. Here is my list of the best, the worst and the disappointing from last year.

The Good

1. True Grit: The Coen Bros faultless remake of a rather dull John Wayne western with fantastic  performances.

 

2. Perfect Sense: Daring and original thoughprovoking Scottish sci-fi film from Sigma Films.

 

3. Project Nim: Touching documentary about the story of the Chimp Nim, which shows humans in a very bad light.

 

4. Black Swan: Demented, but genius ballet movie that feels like The Red Shoes was directed by Cronenberg.

 

5. Senna: Another superb documentary revolving around one of the greatest sportsmen of the last century.

 

6. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo: Who would have known that the Hollywood remake was better than the original.

 

7. Tree of Life: Love or hate it, Malick’s latest makes audiences think while showing off beautiful imagery.

 

8. The Guard: Funniest film of the year from the makers of the fantastic In Bruges.

 

9. Rango: The weirdest looking animation in years, but also the most fun even although the story was slightly unoriginal.

 

10. The Beaver: Underrated comedy drama with an unforgettable performance by Mel Gibson.

 

The Bad

1. Stormhouse: No wonder the British film industry is in a state with an appalling horror film like this.

 

2. Bob Marley: The Making of a Legend: Disappointing documentary comprises of one shot interviews and boring footage.

 

3. Sucker Punch: Alice in Wonderland meets Cuckoo Nest it was not. Another tedious effort from Zach Synder.

 

4. Green Lantern: One of the worst superhero movies in recent years with too much CGI.

 

5. Cars 2: The reason why this failed is purely just that Larry the Cable Guy is not funny.

 

6. Yogi Bear: The voices and animation were fine, the experience was just bad.

 

7. The Next Three Days: A remake which felt like it was three days.

 

8. Limitless: Great premise, poorly executed.

 

9. Hereafter: Apart from the stunning opening sequence, there was little to recommend from Clint Eastwood’s latest.

 

10. Transformers: Dark of the Moon: It was slightly better than the last terrible installment, but that was it. Although the 3-D was the best since Avatar.

 

The Ugly (Disappointments of the year)

In no particular order:

Hanna, Fast Five, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Red State, The Hangover: Part II, X-Men First Class, Horrible Bosses, Kill List, Captain America and Cowboys & Aliens
