Love Letter To ... Dennis Hopper

Saturday, May 29, 2010 0 comments
This year, we're dedicating our ROAD MOVIES FILM PROGRAM to Dennis Hopper, who died today at age 74. Though I've written all of the other "Love Letters" in this series, I think Mr. Hopper's life and work deserve a more serious and professional tribute that I can give.  Instead, I've chosen to excerpt a portion of Roger Ebert's touching tribute, Dennis Hopper: In Memory.  I hope you'll read the entire article on Mr. Ebert's Blog. - Meg

Dennis Hopper's career began as an actor of alienation in movies like "Rebel Without a Cause." His career as a director began with "Easy Rider." His career as an art collector began went he bought one of Andy Warhol's soup can paintings for $75. His career as a drug abuser began at around the same time, and he told me, simply and factually, "I spent some time in a rubber room."

Then he got clean and sober, and his careers started all over again, as an actor, as a director, as a photographer much in demand, as a painter, as an icon. Hopper's death came Saturday at age 74, surrounded by family and friends in the modernist house he built on Venice Beach in Los Angeles and filled with modern art.

For Hopper, life was an art form. His acting took such shape because he was able to reinvent himself as a character. More than many actors , he created characters we remember vividly for themselves: James Dean's sidekick in "Rebel," Marlon Brando's drug-crazed acolyte in "Apocalypse Now," the terrifying gas-sniffing pervert of "Blue Velvet," the town drunk in "Hoosiers," a hit man in "Red Rock West," the villain in "Waterworld."

He was also an intellectual, although that side was masked by his somewhat notorious drug abuse, gradually escalating from the 1960s until about 1983. Some of those years were lost. please continue reading on Ebert's blog

JorDan Fuller's My Father's Son Screens at FFF2010

MY FATHER'S SON TO SCREEN AT FFF2010

The Flagstaff Film Festival 2010 is pleased as punch to announce a few of our films that will be screened this August in splendid Flagstaff Arizona!

My Father's Son, dir. JorDan Fuller
After picking up his son Carlos from a Mexican orphanage, Miles and the boy head out on the road for the States. Struggling to connect and unable to speak each other’s language, their new beginning is quickly wrecked as they become stranded in the desert overnight. Finding themselves blood-related strangers, they must now face the past and any possibility of a future together.

Director Julius Galacki's short comedy "First Night" Added to Roster

FIRST NIGHT TO SCREEN AT THE 2010 FLAGSTAFF FILM FESTIVAL 
The Flagstaff Film Festival 2010 is pleased as punch to announce that another brilliant short film to be screened this August in cool and piney Flagstaff, Arizona!

First Night
, written & directed by Julius Galacki

First Night is a neurotic comedy that finds a couple in bed after having sex for the first time with less than stellar results.

First Night, a short film written and directed by NYU Tisch School of the Arts and Yale School of Drama grad Julius Galacki, is a neurotic comedy which finds Thomas and Sarah in bed after having sex for the first time.  They lay in silence contemplating the previous narrative which went like many a first draft:  a strong start followed by a mixed middle but culminating in a disappointing finish. Nonetheless, through the course of the film, they fumble in and out towards a positive degree of post-coital communication - enough to realize that the second time is always better… well, at least a little bit.

TWO MEN, TWO COWS, TWO GUNS SCREENING AT THE 2010 FLAGSTAFF FILM FESTIVAL 
The Flagstaff Film Festival 2010 is pleased as punch to announce that another brilliant short film to be screened this August in cool and piney Flagstaff, Arizona!

Two Men, Two Cows, Two Guns
, director Pardis Parker

Two Men, Two Cows, Two Guns is an unpredictable comedy short from Canadian filmmaker Pardis Parker. This is a delightfully odd short containing sharp dialogue and hilarious action that unfolds at a breakneck pace.

Wednesday, May 26, 2010 0 comments
Ever heard of getting your kicks on Route 66? Ever heard of roadside diners? Ever slept in a hotel with a stagecoach on the blinking neon sign? Ever heard of Jack Freaking Kerouac?

If you answered "yes" to any of those questions you will want to see a special film program chock-filled with movies about headin' out on the open road.

If you answered "yes" to all of those questions, you've probably made a film about the open road and in which case we'll reward you with a FEE WAIVER for submitting your film to FFF2010! Just send our director, Meg [email link] a synopsis of your film and she'll send you a fee waiver code for submitting via our  Without A Box listing.

Fee Waivers for Genre Films [SCIENTIFIC INQUIRY]

We like science and facts and sciencey facts. We also like Lowell Observatory and we want to spend a night of watching films up on that hill. Wouldn't that be fun? We haven't exactly told the people at Lowell about this plan yet because we're waiting to have a few more amazing science-themed shorts.

That's where YOU come in! We're offering FEE WAIVERS for science-themed shorts that explore such themes as scientific exploration, research, and rational thinking on film. All you need to do is email our director, Meg [email link] a synopsis of your film and she'll send you a code.

Easy. And if you don't think so, then you've never heard about how hard it was to be Nikola Tesla.

Congratulations, Yuri Makino & Cindy Stillwell, 111 Degrees Longitude

111 DEGREES LONGITUDE SCREENING AT THE 2010 FLAGSTAFF FILM FESTIVAL
The Flagstaff Film Festival 2010 is pleased as punch to announce a few of our films that will be screened this August in splendid Flagstaff Arizona!

111 Degrees Longitude
, directors Yuri Makino and Cindy Stillwell

Directors Yuri Makino and Cindy Stillwell’s documentary crosses the 111th meridian to speak with two very different women in two very different parts of the U.S. With one in Tucson, AZ and the other in Bozeman MT, they each share their stories and questions about life’s expectations, family, and what it is that is keeping them in their respective locations. The similarities between them and indeed, humans on the whole, become apparent.

URFrenz Screening at FFF2010

0 comments


URFrenz, director Jeff Phillips Starring Lily Holleman, Gayla Goehl, and Najarra Townsend, urFrenz is a feauture-length drama that convincingly reflects the all-too-real downside and functionality of social networking sites and their impact on teens, families, and society. Director Jeff Phillips teams up with producer Jana Winternitz to re-create the chaotic and often silent world of cyber-bullying. When lonely young Catharine (Holleman) thoughtlessly posts a rumor about an old friend (Townsend) on the fictional social networking site UrFrenz, it starts the ball rolling on a catastrophic spiral into the dark side of cyber-bullying and social pressures that teens face every day, both online and at school. urFrenz highlights the relationships between parents and children, demonstrating through a series of escalating events the digital generation gap and the harsh realities of online socialization for teens.

Love Letter To ... Local Twit-Genius

Friday, May 21, 2010 1 comments
If you've read this blog much you have probably figured out that I love smarty-pantses. One of my current favorites is a Tweetster named "AZWritingCoach".

His tweets simultaneously shame and delight me. Here's a smattering:

"What the hell is an 'educator?'  'Teacher' is a perfectly good title."

"Words of the day - Totally destroyed, totally decimated: Both wrong."

"Hating the 'We’re excited to announce' PR release intro." 

"Was Otis Redding really sitting on the dock, wharf or pier of the bay?"

Follow him on Twitter or check out his blog. And no, he hasn't paid me to say any of this and I resent the accusation that you didn't just make.

Remember our little talk yesterday about Mommies and Wifeys and Mother's Day?

Well I'm back reminding you that you ought not forget your Wife and/or Mom on Mother's Day.  And I feel that you understand the importance of my words. You are hearing AND listening, which is very unique for men so good job fellows.

Very nice that you paid heed to my warning and Mom will be happy this year and Wife will be happy to.

BUT WAIT! Right now we're popping ahead in time like we live on Lost Island. Wow ... it's one year from now and you've forgotten Mother's Day! Perhaps I'm on an Oceanic flight from Melbourne to L.A. and I forget to remind you. I don't know, young man, why the oversight happened. But it did.

HOWEVER IT MIGHT BE OKAY ...

... because THIS MOTHER'S DAY you thoughtfully purchased a monthly delivery of wine for mom/wife and she might just be too drunk I mean thrilled with her CabSav to care that you forgot Mother's Day this year, I mean next year. It's confusing, so just click that little link above and purchase some nice stuff for Mom. And Wife.

You'll thank you next year.

See's Candies, Inc.

1. Mother's Day is Sunday May 9th. That means you must BUY YOUR MOTHER A GIFT!
2. If you have a wife and that wife has EVER taken care of your kids,  guess what, WIFE NEEDS A GIFT TOO!

Hello, I'm Meg, and I'm not just the director of the Flagstaff Film Festival, I'm also an official Agent of Joy. Sure, I gave myself that title but that's not really the point. 

What's the point? MOTHER'S DAY! Haven't you been listening?

Your special women EXPECT and DESERVE very special gifts.  I'm here to help ... Might I suggest that you buy them something from:

See's Candies, Inc.

See's Candies are ridiculously tasty, people. If you've never enjoyed one of their wee Pecan Buds, you have lived a tragic little life.

Once you click one of the links and buy something for your wife and/or mother, rest easy knowing that:

1. You won't have to buy cheap teddy bears and plastic flowers from roadside vendors.
2. You've maximized happy joy love levels for your main women. (If you do not understand why this is important, you should double your order immediately.)
3. Help support FFF2010. Which makes that other woman in your life happy, me.

Do it now, thank me later or never cuz I am ...

Let's Talk About Border Issues

0 comments
I'm sure you've all heard about Arizona's new and controversial immigration law. Many people have reacted by calling for bans on travel to Arizona. I completely understand this reaction. Your tourism dollars are valuable. It's admirable to use them to speak to people in power.

I'd be inclined to join you if I was certain that I understood the whole story. But I'm sure I don't.

That's why I'm announcing a SPECIAL SHORT FILM PROGRAM and offering FEE WAIVERS for all short films explore immigration / border issues. A broader education on the subject can only help us enact better legislation in the future.

Anyway ...  If you'd like to receive the waiver, simply email a short pitch to meg@flagstafffilmfestival.org. Your film must adhere to the following basic criteria:
  • ANY GENRE, as long as it's a short!
  • Short film, under 50 minutes, ideally 2 - 15 minutes
  • Completed after 1/1/09
  • Ability to submit via WithoutABox
