I recently came across your page and love everything you do for independent filmmakers! The other day I watched the film Ruby in Paradise, and I am obsessed. This has to be my favorite coming-of-age film from the 90s because it portrays realistic problems in relationships and everyday life. Ruby (Ashely Judd) runs away from her new life to start over in Panama City, Florida. One of my favorite elements of this film is they do not give a backstory to why Ruby left, and I think that was on purpose. I think the director wanted the audience to add a personal element to it because I feel like anyone can see a piece of themselves in Ruby. If you’re interested in it is on Amazon Prime!
Smriti Kiran, Artistic Director of the Mumbai Film Festival, sits down with CMRubinWorld to talk about the We Are One Global Film Festival.
Film festivals like this are an inspiring way to give small filmmakers an outlet to showcase their work in a supportive and educational way that they may not have the chance to do so otherwise. I was reading your about page, and aiming to give everyone opportunities and encourage the dreamers to pursue their passions is truly remarkable! There is a hidden beauty that goes into the creation of making the dream of an independent, short or documentary become a reality. I always feel as though these films go underappreciated, which is why I’m always on the lookout for festivals like yours to be able to show my support. I recently watched an independent horror film called Empathy Inc with my friends, and at first they were somewhat hesitant to watch it because it was an indie they’d never heard of. I pushed for the film and by the end we were all so glad that we did! It was a neo-noir film following the chaos that ensues after toying with the world of extreme virtual reality. We were all left terrified for the fate of humanity by the end of it, and we couldn’t help but question society as we know it. For that, I’d definitely recommend this film to any indie/horror/sci-fi lover! You can find the trailer on Amazon or YouTube if you want to look into it-- and just in time for Halloween as well!
This is such an awesome film festival! I find it really important to support independent films . and filmmakers and I've recently just came a cross this new sci-fi indie that was reviewed greatly by Variety. This film follows a venture capitalist who loses everything, join a start-up for an extreme virtual reality company. Shot in black and white, this monochromatic film let the film give a mysterious and eerie tone. I'd have to recommend this film! It is available on iTunes and Amazon.
If horror movies are in your wheelhouse, I would try to go watch the trailer for this new independent horror film "Soul to Keep" on Dread Central and Horror Society! I had read a bit about this movie and how the director David Allensworth worked to create an integrated message of the deaf community with the lead actress Sandra Mae Frank being hearing impaired. Building on this premise, the entire cast knows sign language and is heavily utilized in the pacing and direction of the film. This is just a refreshing trailer to see where most horror films just follow a simple formula that is severely outdated. Online it says it will release on iTunes tomorrow April 2nd!
If anyone’s looking for a movie to see this weekend, I just saw a trailer for Darkness Visible and thought I would recommend it. It looks like a supernatural thriller/murder mystery with the protagonist attempting to find out how his mother died. It looks deeply rooted in Indian beliefs and superstitions, so will make for a very interesting watch for this genre. If you’re at all interested, I saw it was supposed to show at AMC Theatres - Jersey Gardens 20 starting February 8th.
Oh man! Hunting Emma is latest international film that I've watched and was hooked from beginning to end. This South African film puts an "ordinary city girl" in the worst position possible way out in the middle of nowhere. Once she becomes a witness to a murder the action begins and you begin to question if she really is just ordinary. Here's the film's page if you want to learn more! https://www.facebook.com/HuntingEmma/
Madame The Movie is a fantastic film about love, life and finding yourself. This inspiring movie about two unlikely people who spark up a romance is full of wit, quirk and TONS of romance. Rossy de Palma just received the Jury Prize for Best Performance at Gasparilla and her performance is incredible. Check it out now on VOD!
Agenda: Payback is thrilling, intense and full of suspense. This is a must see film, and lucky for you it is out now on VOD! This film will keep you on the edge of your seat as you watch Steve Walsh fight for his life after his enemies seek revenge against his wrong-doings. Check out the trailer now, I promise you won't be disappointed. "To punish a sin you must become a sinner."
Justin LaReau and Ayush Banker’s A Demon Within has been keeping my friends and I up for four nights straight. There’s nothing more terrifying than demonic possession, especially when it has its roots in actual historic events. If you’re looking for something scary to watch: you’re welcome. https://play.google.com/store/movies/details/A_Demon_Within?id=S43eqtEEZFg
Thank you New York State International Film Festival for being a part of "Chateau Sauvignon: terroir"s journey!
Fellow film fans, I recently stumbled across a new heist movie full of action and romance that I'm sure you'll love. Imperfections is a rom-com/suspense hybrid unlike anything I’ve ever seen. With its quick and witty writing, dramatic characters and surprising twists, this heist film really has it all. Cassidy, the main character, gets a new job as a delivery girl for a jewels dealer in Chicago. She then becomes enthralled in an illegal get-rich-quick scheme that doesn’t go according to plan. Through the action, suspense and a story of rekindled love, I really fell in love with these characters. If you are in the mood for a funny, and unpredictable drama/comedy, you’ll love this film. Imperfections Opens July 28th in New York City! If you can't make it to the premiere, you can still stream it on iTunes. I seriously recommend this laugh-out-loud funny movie. http://apple.co/2smAXOP
