NYFF & Nouveau Cinema

The 47th Annual New York Film Festival Opens its doors this week. It's one of the few Film Festivals that I can actually attribute a love to- in that it has no prizes and proclaims that the movies themselves are the prizes. Amen to that and Amen to the fact they will be screening Lee Daniels' Precious, Pedro Almodovar's Broken Embraces & Lone Scherfig's An Education- All of which will be reviewed in the next few weeks & all of which have been well received in festival circuits this year. If you want more coverage of the fest you can politely follow Glen Kenny in the following LINK.

The Local 39th Annual Fesival Du Cinema et Nouveau Media in Montreal will be screening those three movies as part of their rich selection of movies this year. The program was announced this past week and has me itching to get my pass to what is THE real film fest of the city -Take note I have politely decided not to take a stab at the other World Film Fest. just because it is too much of an easy target. Other films being screened include Lars Von Trier's decaying Antichrist & Catherine Breillat's Blue Beard.
