Haydenfilms Announces Season One Grand Prize Finalists











Lehigh Valley, PA (PRWEB) November 8, 2005

The Haydenfilms Online Film Festival is pleased to announce their top four finalists for Season One, competing to win the $ 10,000 grand prize at our awards ceremony in December of 2005. The online community selected the finalists from the thirty-six films

participating in the festival, which ran August 30 through October 30, 2005, via an online voting system created for the festival.

The finalists in alphabetical order are: “Fortunate Son” submitted by Quinn Saunders; “I Killed Zoe Day” submitted by Powell Weaver; “Life or Breath” submitted by Steve Desmond; and “Smartcard” submitted by James Oxford. While the winning film will receive the grand prize, the other finalists will receive prize packages contributed by sponsors such as Write Brothers, CMP Books, and Akimbo. These four films will also be showcased at Haydenfilms.com through August 29, 2006. Season Two of the Haydenfilms Online Film Festival begins August 30, 2006.

Finalists for the festival submitted short films no longer than thirty minutes to be reviewed by a unique, professional judging panel consisting of eight national media professors and film industry experts. Each judge viewed and voted on the films, and the top thirty-six films were made available for online member voting during the festival period.

Haydenfilms.com was among the first solely online film festivals, beginning in October 2004 as a way for independent filmmakers to showcase their works to the online community. Of the various online film festivals, they were the first to accept all short films regardless of genre, and the first to offer a $ 10,000 cash prize to the winning filmmaker. Submissions were accepted until July 15, 2005, and included a wide variety of films, ranging from student submissions, animation, and documentary formats.

The Online Film Festival is just one component of Haydenfilms.com, which is quickly becoming known as the premier online resource for independent filmmakers. In addition to the Festival, the website offers its members industry news, job and resume posting, message boards, and shopping for filmmaking software and equipment.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is a Hollywood film directed David Slade. It is an American romantic film based on Stephenie Meyer’s 2007 novel, ‘Eclipse’. The film is the third in the Twilight Saga film series, after Twilight in 2008 and New Moon in 2009. The cast and crew of the film remained mostly same as the previous two films barring a few changes. The film stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner, who reprise their roles as Bella Swan, Edward Cullen, and Jacob Black, respectively. Rachelle Lefevre, who played an evil vampire named Victoria, was replaced with Bryce Dallas Howard in ‘Eclipse’ and the film has David Slader as the new director of the film. Melissa Rosenberg, who penned the scripts for the previous movies in the Twilight series, Twilight and New Moon returns as the screenwriter for this film too!

 

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is about Bella who once again finds herself surrounded by danger as Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between Edward and Jacob — knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella is confronted with the most important decision of her life. The film was released worldwide on June 30, 2010, and became the first Twilight film to be released in IMAX. It set a new record for biggest midnight opening in the United States and Canada in box office history, grossing an estimated million in over 4,000 theatres. The film released in India on the 3rd of July, 2010 and opened to an overwhelming response.

 

Twilight, 2008, too was an American romantic vampire film which was directed by Catherine Hardwicke. This film was also based on the novel of the same name by Stephenie Meyer and revolved around a relationship between a human teenager, by the name of Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), and the subsequent efforts of Cullen and his family to keep Swan safe from a coven of evil vampires. The second in the trilogy, Twilight Saga: New Moon moved a step ahead with the story, with a few more incidents that inspire Bella to become a vampire herself. New Moon was also created by the same cast and crew.

The Graduate
hollywood film

One of the more famous scenes from the Graduate, starring Dustin Hoffman, Anne Bancroft, and Katharine Ross, took place in this church located in La Verne, and not Santa Barbara as the movie depicts. La Verne is located about 35 minutes East of Hollywood. Wayne’s World 2 spoofed this scene for their movie using this same church and this site was also used for the filming of Bubble Boy.

HPL Film Fest 2008 – Hollywood
hollywood film

The Hollywood Theatre has been the home of the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival for as long as I can remember. Despite being very old, and almost falling apart in some places, it’s a gorgeous building. And really, the sense of impending decay kind of adds a little atmosphere to Film Festival.

Melrose Place

This is the apartment building that was used for the filming of the TV show Melrose Place. It is located in Los Angeles, CA. However, it’s actually on Greenwood Place and not on Melrose Place.

The Edinburgh International Film Festival welcomes filmmakers from all over the world for an 11 day celebration of world cinema.

Established in 1947 in the same year as the Edinburgh International Festival, the Film Festival took place in August until 2008 when it was moved to June. It is officially the longest-running film festival in the world.

In the early years of the Film Festival the sole focus was on documentary film making. As the years went on however, the scope of the Film Festival was expanded to include fictional films and more abstract work.

Nowadays, film fans and critics can enjoy (or not) a wide variety of cinematic work from short films to full-length feature films to animated work to documentaries to music videos and even films with no moving pictures at all, as we witnessed this year!

British cinema can be relied upon to provide the weird and wonderful from comedy to horror (and black comedies) to biopics. Yet the range of international films you can expect to see at the festival is about as diverse as it comes.

This year, the Edinburgh International Film Festival welcomed film makers from almost every continent on Earth. Iraq, Taiwan, Colombia and New Zealand were all represented by some of their highly talented citizens.

Our city has a long-standing cinematic and theatrical tradition and boasts an impressive number of cinemas and theatres. The Edinburgh International Film Festival is based at the Edinburgh Filmhouse on Lothian Road, the city’s leading art house cinema.

However, the festival organisers make a point of spreading movie screenings throughout the city, using 12 locations including Cineworld at Fountainpark, the Festival Theatre on Nicholson Street, the Cameo movie theatre on Home Street and the Edinburgh Festival Theatre.

The idea behind this is to showcase the diversity of our cinemas and theatres and to enable the audiences, which are always made up of both locals and visitors from elsewhere, to appreciate cinema in its traditional and modern form.

Screenings are not simply about sitting down and enjoying a two-hour film in a full cinema. The directors, producers and occasionally actors are often in attendance to talk to the audience from the front of the cinema or participate in a question and answer session. As a result, the vast majority of guests have a genuine interest in cinema as an art form rather than an interest in popcorn and several explosions.

Every year dozens of films have their UK or worldwide premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival adding that extra little bit of spice to proceedings.In 2009, The Hurt Locker had its UK premiere in Edinburgh and went on to perform quite well indeed at the Oscars a few months later.

Edinburgh has in fact hosted a significant number of key premieres over the years including Amelie, L.A Confidential and Pulp Fiction.

In keeping with the Festival’s aim of drawing attention to and rewarding cinematic achievement and also nurturing new talent, a number of awards are up for grabs every year. There are awards for particularly impressive achievements in acting, documentary film making, direction and short film production. The audiences also get to have their say when they are asked to vote for their favourite film from the mainstream cinema section.

The Honorary Patrons of the Edinburgh International Film Festival are four very familiar faces for television and film fans. Local legend and former secret agent Sir Sean Connery, actress and former student of Fettes College Tilda Swinton, Scottish actor Robert Carlyle and photography and direction guru Seamus McGarvey are all involved behind the scenes and up on stage each year.

With almost 12 months until next year’s 2011 Edinburgh International Film Festival there is still plenty of time for you to get your own entry in….suggestions?? A documentary about your rubber ducky? A comedy involving your inebriated neighbours? Or perhaps a short film about your time in Edinburgh…

PlayByPlayMen screens on Saturday, July 12th, 2:45 PM at The Roxie Theatre: 3117 16th Street, San Francisco, CA.

The San Francisco Frozen Film Festival is a collection of razor’s edge independent films and bands. Included in the festival are nights of live music concerts, short films, animation, global features, long and short documentaries, skate films, music documentaries, and music videos.

PlayByPlayMen won the Best Documentary Feature at The 2007 New England Film and Video Festival, took Finalist honors in The 2007 Central Florida Film Festival, and was an official selection at The 2007 Iowa City International Film Festival, The 2007 New Hampshire Film Festival, and The 2007 Wildwood By The Sea Film Festival.

Empty Movie Theater Empty Heart

GRAND LAKE THEATER, OAKLAND CALIFORNIA: My latest published photo shoot for San Francisco Magazine (in the current issue on newstands now) was Lake Merritt. Lake Merritt is truly one of the highlights of Oakland. Beautiful water, natural water fowl, and wonderful restaurants nearby. My favorite photographic gem of all though in this part of Oakland is the Grand Lake Theater. I sold a photo of the Grand Lake Theater once that they used in a Choice Hotels commercial.

This is a shot of the interior of the Grand Lake Theater. It is a large and cavernous place and feels lonely when you are there by yourself hanging out and shooting outside the screening theaters.

To check out all of my shots from this Lake Merritt shoot you can visit my Lake Merritt set on Zooomr.

Prepare for Lift Off: Third Elevate Film Festival Kicks Off Dec. 8










Los Angeles, CA. (PRWEB) December 4, 2006

The third Elevate Film Festival will take place as part of the Celebration of Oneness, a two-day multi-media event that will take place at the Pasadena Convention Center and Civic Auditorium on December 9th and 10th. The event is designed to inspire people to consider oneness with their body, mind, spirit, environment, community and globe. Nine professional filmmakers will pick subjects randomly from the hat, and have 48 hours to deliver their completed short films (11 minute maximum length) or music videos (4 minute maximum length). These films will be displayed Sunday in the Civic Auditorium as the 3rd Elevate Film and Music Festival.

“When I heard the tagline for the Elevate Film and Music Festival, ‘Lifting consciousness 48 hours at a time’™ I couldn’t wait to meet one of its creators, Mikki Willis” said Colleen Cackowski, CEO and Founder of Dragonfly Now, producer of Celebration of Oneness.

For people who consider their consciousness and happiness a priority, they will love the event and this wondrous film festival.

The Elevate Film and Music Festival is a reflection of Mikki, a very uplifting and loving soul who also happens to be a brilliant photographer, director and producer. One of his missions is to challenge international filmmakers to make films that will make a difference, and that get the word out about organizations and individuals who are having a positive impact on our world.

At 9:00 a.m. at KTLA on Friday, December 8th, Mikki Willis will put uplifting or inspiring subject matters in a hat. Nine professional filmmakers will pick subjects randomly from the hat, and have 48 hours to deliver their completed short films (11 minute maximum length) or music videos (4 minute maximum length).

After a two-day countdown, while filmmakers scurry around Los Angeles, shooting and editing their films in guerilla style, at 4:00 p.m. on December 10th, three thousand people will gather to be lifted up and out of their seats at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium for the screening of all nine films and music videos.

It’s not often that film festivals come to the San Gabriel Valley, let alone one whose intention is to have its audience feel good! If you are in the mood for happy, if you are up to supporting filmmakers who are up to making a difference in the world, and celebrating others doing the same, then this is the Film Festival for you.
