Is she prem-ing at Ritrovato in fact?

David C's Natan film sounds like a doozy, again I hope they can make some reasonable dough on it before letting it loose on the commercial disc and DL scene.

Ah, of course. I remember reading about those commentaries earlier in one of Schreck’s posts. I shall certainly download some of them and have listen.

At the moment I am watching mostly Hollywood from the 40’s, trying to complete most of Joan Crawford’s filmography. Ever considered doing a commentary for one of her films?

God, the Cinema Ritrovato festival always looks so awesome. Is it generally open to public and easy to get seats once you buy accreditation? Do you have to pay any additional fees on top of that? I might have to head over next year and then spend a week over on the coast in Le marche. Such an easy place to get to for us Brits and I've spent a lovely afternoon in part of the town before. I need to go back.

Yes, once you have got your badge you can easily watch everything.

Then you may also consider attending Pesaro Film Festival, right on the seaside.

Yes the festival is open to the public. The cost of accreditation is 80 euro, while students pay 35. This gives access to all screenings in the four regular venues. It also gives access to special reserved seats for the outdoor night screenings in the piazza.

In general it’s always easy to get a seat. Though some of the screenings in the two smallest venues at the cinematheque can sometimes get full.

I should also add that those who wish to donate money for the obviously very worthy cause of supporting the festival can pay extra to receive a tiered price special service that includes extra dinners, DVDs, posters, guided tours etcetera.

I was in Pesaro last year as it happens, although sadly after the festival, as I was on a summer language course in Urbino. I'll definitely have to check these out in the future. Le marche are such an underrated part of Italy. Can't wait to go back there. This year, however, me and the missus will be visiting Milan, Genoa and the Gulf of Poets on our honeymoon.

Can anyone who attended give some information about the Zanzibar Films retrospective? I can't find info about what films were shown or guests besides Jackie Raynal presenting Deux Fois.

A little mistake:
Jonathan Rosenbaum wrote:

David (not Davide) Maria Turoldo wasn't Pandolfi's father, he is called "padre"/"father" only because he was a priest (like Father O'Malley).

Are they going to print / write a book about those films just before made WWII began? I've rewatched Borzage's 3 comrades and it's beautiful. On that retrospective I think it's missing Clarence Brwon's Idiot's delight.

Full 2014 program up. Is anyone here going? I had a great week there last year and I'm hoping to be back this year.

I really must go one of these years, but I suspect I'll be desperately trying to put the Borowczyk project to bed.

But I think James White is going, so I'll gladly arrange a virtual introduction beforehand - I suspect you two would get on rather well.

Some interesting old Japanese films

Hanayome no negoto (The Bride Talks in Her Sleep, 1933) by Heinosuke Gosho Ureshii kor (Our Happy Day, 1933) by Hiromasa Nomura
Nakinureta haru no onna yo (A Woman Crying in Spring, 1933) by Hiroshi Shimizu Tonari no Yae-chan (Our Neighbour, Miss Yae, 1934) by Yasujiro Shimazu Shunkinsho: Okoto to Sasuke (Okoto and Sasuke, 1935) by Yasujiro Shimazu Gubijinso (The Field Poppy, 1935) by Kenji Mizoguchi
Ojo Okichi (1935) by Tatsunosuke Takashima
Hitori musuko (The Only Son, 1936) by Yasujiro Ozu

(I've seen five of these already)

Mizoguchi had some role (as adviser?) in Ojo Okichi

I wish I could go. At least they are screening a bunch of non-Satyajit Ray INDIAN classics there. I am not sure I will ever be able to see them on a proper home video release. That list of films is truly mind blowing.

Yes! One can only hope that this means the films being screened have been restored. They're all great films, but my sentimental favorite is Guru Dutt's Kaagaz Ke Phool (Paper Flowers). I would love to see a proper restoration of that film in 'scope! Anyway, for me the fifties was the peak era of Indian cinema, and it's great to be able to see so many of those films together.

If these are restored then here is hoping that somebody will pick them up to home video release (blu-ray, specifically) in USA or UK. I would kill for Roy's Do bigha
zameen (Two Acres of Land, 1953) and Ghatak's Ajantrik (Pathetic Fallacy, 1958). Wasn't Pyaasa (The Thristy One, 1957) released in France last year on DVD?

I don't need English subs for them, but I would rather wait for Blu-rays :wink:
