New Jersey Film Festival Fall 2012 Schedule Announced


(NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ) -- The Rutgers Film Co-op/New Jersey Media Arts Center, in association with the Rutgers University Program In Cinema Studies, is proud to present the New Jersey Film Festival Fall 2012 which marks our 31st Anniversary. Showcasing new international films, American independent features, experimental and short subjects, classic revivals, and cutting-edge documentaries, the New Jersey Film Festival Fall 2012 will feature over 60 film screenings. The Festival will run from September 13 through November 2.

All the works that we are screening, with the exception of three programs, are part of the New Jersey Film Festival competition and were selected by a panel of judges including media professionals, journalists, students, and academics. These judges selected the 21 finalists which will be publicly screened at our Festival. The finalists were selected from over 223 works submitted by filmmakers from around the world. In addition, the judges will choose the Prize Winners (including over $5,000 in prizes) in conjunction with the Festival Director. Prize winners will be announced after the screenings on Sunday, October 7, 2012.

Film Premieres:
Over 25 films will have their New Jersey or Area Premiere (Middlesex County) screenings as part of the New Jersey Film Festival Fall 2012. Some of these include: Georges Melies's restored A Trip to the Moon and the documentary The Extraordinary Voyage which focuses on Melies's film career; Erik Canuel's Barrymore, a new feature film starring Academy-Award winner Christopher Plummer on legendary actor John Barrymore;
David Spaltro's highly acclaimed independent feature Things I Don't Understand, Peter Simonite and Annie Gunn's stunning short film reanimates the past through the lens of the ubiqitous 1950s family camera; Megan Peterson and John Douglas Sinclair's Heathens & Thieves -- a stark and engrossing western crime drama set during the 1849 Gold Rush; Rubaiyat Hossain's Meherjaan -- a deeply moving, expertly crafted and controversial feature film from Bangladesh; Thibaut Duverneix and Victor Quijada's beautiful short dance film Gravity of Center; Mark Bacci's Five Hours South -- an unconventional dance movie from Italy; Diane Ciccone's short documentary An Act of Faith profiles the members of three churches, and their pioneering efforts to create housing for African-Americans in Princeton, New Jersey; Kevin Couliau and Robert Garcia Doin' It In The Park: Pick-Up Basketball, NYC is an enthralling feature-length documentary that explores the history and culture of pick-up basketball in New York City; Megan Hessenthaler‘s One Brooklyn Boat -- a short documentary about a man lives on a houseboat built as an experiment in urban sustainability in Brooklyn, New York; Leigha Cohen's 99% Solution -- an insightful documentary connects the dots between the world's water crisis, global warming, and the privatization of water worldwide, to local water battles in New Jersey and the relentless expansion of hydraulic fracking; Cathy Lee Crane's Pasolini's Last Words -- an impressionistic biography that seeks to penetrate into what Pasolini himself called “the material presence” of poetry.

The Luring: Fear & Neurosis In Vermont
“As a kid, I was always drawn to the darkness,” said filmmaker Christopher Wells.  “I’d think, ‘Why can’t monsters protect me? If I’m friends with the monsters then I don’t have anything to fear.’”
REVIEW: "Searching"
A few weeks ago the body of a 14-year-old schoolgirl was discovered around the corner from where I’m sitting writing this review. Within hours of the tragic discovery, two 13-year-old boys had been arrested. The police had their work simplified by a series of damning posts across social media which pointed to the guilt of the boys in question. Increasingly, when young people go missing or have their lives taken from them, police investigations are now focused more on trawling through the victim’s internet history in search of clues rather than the pavement pounding of old.
REVIEW: "The Children Act"
Earlier this year saw the release of On Chesil Beach, an adaptation of an Ian McEwan novel centered around a wealthy musician who can’t bring herself to have sex with her husband. Now we get The Children Act, an adaptation of an Ian McEwan novel centred around a wealthy musician who can’t bring herself to have sex with her husband. Both are scripted by the novelist himself, and both suggest McEwan should stick to the literary world.
