As someone who loves good poster art as well as docs about the movies, I’m very excited to check out Kevin Burke’s 24×36, which explores the art of the documentary will be premiering at this year’s Fantastic Fest in Austin, kicking off September 22nd
There are plenty of film festivals I love, and even more that I have a general fondness for, but Austin’s Fantastic Fest is one that I truly adore. The first wave of films for this year’s program have been revealed, which includes
The passion behind Nicholas Bateman’s feature-length debut, The Circus Animals, is certainly evident throughout; one could go insofar as labelling the passion palpable or tangible, in a way, since it saturates every character interaction within every scene. It’s a film that admittedly wears its heart on its proverbial sleeve as every opportunity to thrust the emotion to the forefront is met with an eagerness that is situated as one of the film’s main strengths and, ultimately, its weakness all at once.
The Fandependent Films Spring 2016 Film Festival has officially wrapped and with that the winners of this edition have been announced. Scott Baehrend‘s documentary Two Fingers, The Windy City Wonder received the Audience Award, with Jack Perez‘s Some Guy Who Kills People and
In 1917, a doctor by the name of John Romulus Brinkley performed an experimental surgery transplanting goat testicles into an impotent man in order to cure him of his ailment.

With VR technology finally becoming something consumers can experience with the release of the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and, to a lesser extent, Samsung Gear VR, it seems only fitting that we would start getting films that paint a picture of what our future could be like if this technology explodes into the mainstream and evolves into something much more than a simple device to play games and watch media.
Ah, another film festival and another coming-of-age story set in a decaying rural community. Even as a fan of the coming-of-age tale, I was just about to wash my hands of movies like this, but then King Jack went and won me over with its strong visuals and a breakout performance from Charlie Plummer.
A new trailer has been released for director Ryan Gregory Phillips‘ Shortwave, a sci-fi horror film premiering at this year’s Dances With Films festival in Los Angeles. The film involves a couple who, after the loss of their child, move into a research
There are few people in this world who could be classified as true heroes – those who selflessly help others in need without asking for anything in return, many times at the detriment to their own wellbeing. Gennadiy Mokhnenko, the subject of director Steve Hooper’s latest documentary, Almost Holy (formerly titled Crocodile Gennadiy), seems to handily fit that bill. Spanning over a decade, the film looks at Mokhnenko’s work as a pastor and the founder of the Pilgrim Republic rehabilitation center, protecting the youth of Ukraine from addiction and the streets.
The trailer for director Olivier Assayas‘ next film, Personal Shopper has been released, after its premiere at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. The film stars Kristen Stewart, who also starred in the director’s last film, Clouds of Sils Maria, as a personal
