SAG Nominees: Duh’s, Snubs and WTF’s

The Screen Actors Guild announced their 2012 nominees this week. There were definitely some surprises, according to Sean. Where you happy with the actors/films recognized by the Hollywood Foreign Press?

Vote For FOCUS FORWARD Semifinalists In Socially Conscious Film Competit

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.

FESTIVALS, LABS & COMPETITIONS

  • South Arts’ Southern Circuit is providing filmmakers with the paid opportunity to participate in a six-venue tour of the Southeastern United States to screen their films for new audiences. Submit feature-length work by January 10th.

QUEUE IT UP

  • Sean called it “the scariest film of the year” back in January  and now you can judge for yourself. “Martha Marcy May Marlene” (or as the cool kids say “MMMM”) is now on Netflix Instant.
  • Kickstarter-funded? 2012 SXSW selection? Features Girl Talk music? Stop whatever you’re doing and check out the full dance film “Girl Walk // All Day” online today.
  • It’s not secret how much I love “Beasts of the Southern Wild” since seeing it in Park City back earlier this year. Now the multiple award-winning story of a little Black girl named Hushpuppy living in a magical place called the Bathtub is available for pre-order on Amazon & Best-Buy. Official release date is 12/4.
