// = do_shortcode (‘[in-content-square]’)?>

An animated film telling the story of Tryweryn will be screened at the Cardiff International Film Festival at the end of October.

The film by Osian Roberts, from Llanerchymedd on Anglesey, has been selected to be part of the ‘Welsh Films’ category of the festival.

Osian Roberts took an Art Foundation course at Coleg Menai, Bangor, before studying BA Animation at Manchester Metropolitan University.

He said he viewed the film festival as an “opportunity to bring the story” of Capel Celyn’s drowning to a wider audience.

“I worked really hard on the film during the pandemic, and was able to put in hours of it because I was spending a lot of time at home,” said Osian Roberts. Golwg360.

“I worked alone on film, animation, etc. and then I had someone to help me with the music.

“I’m just really proud that the film was chosen, it’s really a little surreal.”

“I don’t know the details”

He eventually made the film as part of his graduate project at the School Of Art at Manchester Metropolitan University.

“The more I was in Manchester, the more I entered Welsh history, and I think I wanted to go home,” he said.

“So I was researching the history of Wales and I knew the story of Capel Celyn before, but I decided that was the story that I would like to make a film about.

“Everyone knows Capel Celyn’s story, but we don’t know the details, so I found it really interesting to go into the details.

“I decided to make this film about history, and then I ran with the idea.”

But when he discussed the film with his Manchester friends and fellow students, he realized that the story was not as well known as he thought.

“Beyond the border into England, I noticed when I pitched the idea at university that not many people had heard the story,” he said.

“They knew the wall, but not the story.”

The intermission is now over at the Syracuse International Film Festival.

After the Covid-19 pandemic forced last year’s event to go virtual, the 18th annual film festival will take place October 22-24 at multiple venues in Syracuse with 48 films screened in competition, as well as four guest films, having received 139 works from 31 countries. SIFF 2021 will feature screenings of dramas, comedies and horror films; a discussion of lacrosse; an audition workshop for actors; and more.

Nick Bernardone, a Syracuse resident, an Emmy-nominated writer whose credits include AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead” and “The Walking Dead”, will headline this year’s Syracuse Film Festival with a writer’s workshop on Saturday 23 October at 3 p.m. at the Redhouse. Arts Center. The event is described as an one-on-one opportunity for writers, filmmakers and budding fans to learn what it takes to be successful in the writer’s room.

Bernardone graduated from Jamesville-DeWitt High School in 2003 and studied television and digital cinema at SUNY Fredonia before pursuing a career in television in New York. One of his first jobs was writing and editing web content for NBC’s “30 Rock,” which earned him a Producers Guild of America Award for Outstanding Digital Series and a nomination for Emmy for Outstanding Special Class Short Format Video. He also wrote for the social media character of Tracy Jordan (played by Tracy Morgan), which was named one of Time magazine’s Top 100 Twitter feeds.

Bernardone went on to write for Netflix’s “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” created by Tina Fey and starring Ellie Kemper, but soon found herself watching less home comedy and more “escape” shows like ” The Walking Dead ”and the Marvel movies. He wanted to do something different, connect with the producers of “The Walking Dead”, and now writes scenes where zombies chase heroes as an oil rig explodes.

“It was a pretty amazing trip,” he said of his career in a phone interview with syracuse.com | The Post-Standard.

He added that writing for a drama / horror requires a different approach which is “really fun, and it’s really liberating and it allows you to use a whole different part of your brain – which takes that audience into this. crazy trip “.

This provided photo shows Nick Bernardone, originally from Syracuse, a television writer whose credits include “Fear the Walking Dead”, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” and “30 Rock”.

Bernardone also enjoys watching comedies again, although he turns to more bizarre shows like Tim Robinson’s irreverent “I Think You Should Go”. He also notes that the best TV shows have evolved in ways where “it’s no longer acceptable to be just one thing,” like Jason Sudeikis’ famous Apple TV + series “Ted Lasso.”

“You can’t be just a great sitcom anymore,” he said. “And ‘Kimmy Schmidt’ was already a little ahead of its time by then.”

The way TV shows are created has also evolved since the coronavirus pandemic shut down productions last year. “Fear the Walking Dead” has chosen to go completely remote with much of its staff; the writers are now meeting on Zoom, so Bernardone has decided to leave Los Angeles and return home with his family to Jamesville, NY, where he is currently working on season 7 of “Fear the Walking Dead,” which airs Sunday on AMC and AMC +.

Bernardone predicts that even after concerns over Covid-19 subside, many shows will continue to embrace the “reinvented way of working in the industry,” possibly adopting a hybrid of in-person and remote staff meetings.

Registration for the Writer’s Workshop will also include a limited edition “Fear the Walking Dead” poster designed by local artist James P. McCampbell and signed by Bernardone.

Bernardone will also air an episode of “Fear the Walking Dead” and the Emmy nominated short film “The Walking Dead: Red Machete” at 4:30 pm on October 23. The event will feature a live question-and-answer session with Bernardone.

“Auckland’s cancellation was a big blow – a blow we share with other arts and culture organizations across the country that have been hugely affected by this latest Delta outbreak,” said festival director Marten. Rabarts.

A cap on event capacity has been removed, but there will still be physical distancing and mask wearing requirements.

Organizers have confirmed that Christchurch will screen 95 films from 37 countries during the festival, which ends on November 14. The films will be screened at the Isaac Theater Royal or at the Lumière cinemas.

Meanwhile, Wellington will screen 164 films, with its festival from November 4 to 21.

Campion’s latest film – starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Kirsten Dunst – will open the festival in these two big cities.

Rabarts said the festival will have a fantastic collection of New Zealand films and that its international lineup is also filled with award-winning and critically acclaimed films.

Over the next week, Johnson County moviegoers will have the chance to experience a thrilling adventure as they emerge from a notorious jail.

They will step into the life of a well-known magician whose real magic is to be a full-time caregiver. Inspiration will spring from the screen of a story about a pianist who has spent his entire life learning to play with just his left hand, and the story of a group of unsuitable bus drivers who took “Alien” away. in the theater capital of England.

And to top it off, people can follow the cursed love between two New York teenagers in the classic “West Side Story”.

As it celebrates its 30th anniversary, the Heartland International Film Festival unveiled its biggest event to date. The cinematic extravaganza will feature some of the season’s most anticipated films. Animated screenings include a biopic on Princess Diana, documentaries about legendary chef Julia Child and musician Alanis Morissette, and new films from directors Wes Anderson and Kenneth Branagh.

Films starring Will Smith, Joaquin Phoenix, Benedict Cumberbatch and Claire Foy are included in all 143 films shown over the next nine days.

More importantly for local moviegoers, the festival once again features screenings at the Historic Artcraft Theater.

“We know people are excited to come back. Audiences are ready to go back to the movies, so we knew people would be excited about it, ”said Greg Sorvig, Artistic Director of Heartland Film. “People love Artcraft, so it’s a given.”

The Heartland International Film Festival has brought the best of uplifting and uplifting cinema to central Indiana over the past three decades.

Founded in 1991, the idea for the film festival came from filmmakers in the Indianapolis area who wanted to showcase more life-affirming art in the city. The Heartland Film team envisioned a balance with the glamorous and sometimes soulless film culture that is so abundant on the East and West coasts.

During the first 20 years, the festival grew slowly. But since 2011, its reputation and prestige have skyrocketed. Over the years, Heartland Film has awarded $ 3.5 million in cash prizes – the highest total amount awarded by a film festival in North America. Over 1,800 feature films and short films were screened at the event, including seven Oscar-winning titles.

“We’re a real Oscar stopover here in central Indiana,” Sorvig said.

This year’s event features a fascinating roster of films. Featured events include the Princess Diana “Spencer” biopic, starring Kristin Stewart; “Come on, come on”, with Joaquin Phoenix; and “Belfast”, a grandiose film by Branaugh starring Golden Globe nominee Caitríona Balfe, Judi Dench and Oscar winner Ciarán Hinds.

Anderson’s latest film, “The French Dispatch” features his quirky sense of humor and style, backed by a massive cast including Benicio del Toro, Adrien Brody, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, Timothée Chalamet, Jeffrey Wright, Bill Murray and Owen Wilson.

“From studios that held back their releases last year, it feels like the floodgates have opened this time around,” Sorvig said. “We have locked up so many fantastic movies, where this is arguably our biggest year.”

But apart from the flagship events, the entire festival offers some incredibly visceral and moving films. “The First Wave” focuses on everyday heroes at the COVID-19 epicenter in one of New York’s hardest hit hospitals at the start of the pandemic. “Mayor Pete” brings viewers inside Pete Buttigieg’s campaign to be the youngest president of the United States. “Catch the Fair One” is a revenge thriller produced by Darren Aronofsky, about a Native American woman who embarks on the fight of her life when she goes in search of her missing sister.

“Mayberry Man,” which features Franklin’s Circle City Sidewalk Stompers Clown Band, tells the story of an arrogant movie star who is forced to attend a festival celebrating “The Andy Griffith Show,” where he discovers the real sense of friendship and family.

The public response so far has been overwhelmingly positive.

“People who had never been there before, or people who thought we were something they weren’t attracted to, we have such compelling programming that people are excited,” Sorvig said. “We’re already seeing a lot of people coming back, new people who’ve never bought tickets before, and the presales are really, really strong.”

After hosting an event with a strong focus on virtual screenings and some live events at local drive-in theaters last year, the festival will feature an increased number of indoor events, although virtual options are still available. The films will be screened at the Kan-Kan Cinema & Brasserie in Fountain Square, the Living Room Theaters at the newly opened Bottleworks Complex in downtown Indianapolis, Newfields and the Indianapolis Arts Center for picnic-style events.

At the same time, the festival is expected to bring back a list of films to the Artcraft Theater, continuing what has become a long-standing relationship.

The Artcraft has partnered with Heartland Film for the past eight years to host Best of the Fest, a showcase of the year’s treasured film festival films. Since starting this program, Artcraft has been one of the organization’s favorite stops, Sorvig said. The event has also become one of the popular events in the Franklin Theater’s annual program.

The success of Best of the Fest led Artcraft to be chosen to host the Heartland International Film Festival screenings starting in 2019. At the time, it was the first South Side venue chosen for the festival in 10 years, since the Greenwood Park 14 theater was an official venue.

The Heartland and Artcraft teams worked together to find the right balance between films to be shown in theaters. The result is a roster of seven films that run the gamut from the heartbreaking drama of a true prison break in “Escape from Pretoria” to the Christmas-themed romantic comedy “See You Next Christmas” in the inspiring story of ‘a magician and home caregiver in “The Incredible Lamont”.

“Peace By Chocolate” tells the story of a Syrian refugee who struggles to settle into his new life in a small Canadian town, caught between his dream of becoming a doctor and preserving his family’s chocolate heritage. “Alien On Stage” is a documentary about a group of British bus drivers who put on an amateur stage show of the sci-fi classic “Alien”, eventually bringing it to London’s West End theater district. “For the Left Hand” tells the story of a pianist paralyzed at the age of 10 who, over the following decades, mastered the repertoire of the left hand.

Artcraft screenings end with “West Side Story”, the musical masterpiece starring Natalie Wood and George Chakiris. At the first Heartland Film Festival event, the film was screened, so it’s a good step back to remake it for the festival’s 30th anniversary, Sorvig said.

“This first year we did ‘West Side Story’ and gave awards to directors, so now, on our 30th anniversary, we can show it on 35mm film at Artcraft,” he said. Sorvig said. “This is the real birthday flashback.”

The last duel, 2021.

Directed by Ridley Scott.
With Jodie Comer, Matt Damon, Adam Driver, Ben Affleck, Marton Csokas, Harriet Walter, Clare Dunne, Zeljko Ivanek, Nathaniel Parker, Michael McElhatton, Alex Lawther, Zoé Bruneau, Ian Pirie, William Houston, Sam Hazeldine, Brian F. Mulvey , Caoimhe O’Malley, Serena Kennedy and Julian Firth.

SYNOPSIS:

King Charles VI declares that the knight Jean de Carrouges settles his dispute with his squire by challenging him to a duel.

The-Last-Duel-600x352

Director Ridley Scott opens The last duel with a shot of two men getting ready to joust. As a woman watches with direct interest, it is reasonable to assume that, given the setting of medieval France 1386, one of the men is fighting for her and defending her honor. Ridley Scott also made the winner for Best Picture Gladiator, after all.

The last duel is the anti-Gladiator.

Written by co-stars Ben Affleck and Matt Damon (judiciously bringing Nicole Holofcener into the fold, presumably to polish the sensitive material and bring a more authentic touch to the female experience of these ruthlessly regressive times that, sadly, have yet to fully improve), The last duel is divided into three separate chapters. Each of them functions as a prospect for one of the main players in this tale of war, loyalty, betrayal, romance, and serious accusations that can only be resolved through a trial in combat.

Meanwhile, Jodie Comer, despite being a desperate spectator victim, portrays a fully fleshed out, layered character, proving that the other crime here is that she’s not at the center of it all. The last duel. Nonetheless, this film is still compelling, with four distinct central performances and a wildly tense final battle. Maybe, hopefully, happiness is on the other side.
