The US Presidential election may have come, but everyday indies are running their own campaigns for personal projects. Three of my film friends are Audience Favorites semifinalists in the same short documentary contest. Check out their films and many others HERE. Voting ends December 20th.

REVIEWS

Sean says: “The House I Live In” is important, but frustrating. Have you seen the documentary attempting to dissect the war on drugs?

FESTIVALS AND COMPETITIONS

QUEUE IT UP

  • Meet Ai Weiwei: talented Chinese multi-media artist by day, the most dangerous man on Twitter by night. The award-winning documentary “Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry” is now available on iTunes and Amazon DVD pre-order (available 12/4). My review HERE.
  • Remember that time Will Ferrell made a Mexican telenovela film completely in Spanish? “Casa de mi Padre” is now streaming on Netflix. My review HERE .
  • I missed Canadian director Sara Polley’s compelling documentary “Stories We Tell” at Telluride, but we can all catch her latest fiction drama, “Take This Waltz”.  Now on Netflix Instant and AmazonPrime and starring Michelle Williams, Seth Rogen and Sarah Silverman.
