This week on The Roundup we look at a once-lost Tom Schiller sci-fi starring Bill Murray, the redesign of Senses of Cinema and interviews with Linklater, Swanberg, Soderbergh and Albert Serra.
This week on the web we found a great podcast looking at Hollywood history, Buster Keaton’s autobiography, a look at how Edgar Wright uses film techniques to greatly enhance comedy and much more!
The Roundup is a new series which collates (and curates) news, feature articles, podcast episodes and other online curios associated with film. This week we have an interesting fan theory about The Empire Strikes Back, a new Godard short and a gorgeous film stills archive.
Festival director Nashen Moodley announced the official competition today and it’s as diverse as ever, with four Australian films screening out of the twleve in the running. Also screening are some great retrospectives and an engaging section on Chinese cinema.
