Seit Donnerstag, 29. September 2016, läuft das 24. Filmfest Hamburg. Hier sind meine spontanen Kurzbewertungen der bisher gesehenen Filme (Höchstpunktzahl: 5), die ich direkt nach dem Kinobesuch zu twittern versuche. Ich verwende dabei den offiziellen Hashtag #FFHH16. Die Liste wird ständig aktualisiert. (Hier geht’s direkt zu den Updates von Samstag (1.10.) / Sonntag (2.10.) / Montag (3.10.) / Mittwoch (5.10.) / Donnerstag (6.10.) / Freitag (7.10.) / Samstag (8.10.).)
Since 2005, I have been visiting the Indian Film Festival / Indisches Filmfestival Stuttgart (my 2016 preview) almost every year. Here are short Twitter reviews of the 18 movies I was able to watch this year (sorted by rating, the highest one would have been 5 stars/*****):
Deepa Mehta at 15th River to River. Florence Indian Film Festival (#R2RFIFF) / Looking back at Stuttgart’s #IFFSTR15
From Deepa Mehta’s Wikipedia entry :
[She is] most known for her Elements Trilogy, Fire (1996), Earth (1998), and Water (2005); among which Earth was sent by India as its official entry for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, and Water was Canada’s official entry for Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, making it only the second non-French-language Canadian film to put forth for consideration in that category (the first being Zacharias Kunuk’s 2001 Inuktitut-language feature, Atanarjuat), and the first to receive an Oscar nomination. She also co-founded Hamilton-Mehta Productions, with her husband, producer David Hamilton in 1996. She was awarded a Genie Award in 2003 for the screenplay of Bollywood/Hollywood. In May 2012, Mehta received the Governor General’s Performing Arts Award for Lifetime Artistic Achievement, Canada’s highest honour in the performing arts.
