Other fests, other events, 9/7."Is Incest Best? Mumblecore & American Independent Cinema" is the name of a panel Alex Lipschultz is moderating this evening in Seattle as part of the Northwest Film Forum's Mumble Without a Cause series running through October 3. Helping him come up with an answer will be Mark Duplass, Aaron Katz and Lynn Shelton. The full lineup for Austin's Fantastic Fest is now locked and loaded. September 20 through 27. Via Quint at AICN. At indieWIRE, Anthony Kaufman presents an annotated shortlist of films from around the world premiering this fall: "[T]hey'll be the ones that buyers, critics and journalists will be checking off their lists." For the Reeler, Mat Newman talks with Anne Morra, assistant film curator at MoMA, about A Sense of Where You Are, a series focusing on the "profound affect of geography on film." Sunday through September 30. Also, ST VanAirsdale gets early word on what'll be in the Woodstock Film Festival lineup this year. October 10 through 14. "Even now, no one seems quite sure how the film got started.... Hundreds of hours and tens of thousands of dollars later, things have worked out: Bending Space: Georges Rousse and the Durham Project premieres this Monday, Sept 10, at the Carolina Theatre in downtown Durham." Gerry Canavan tells the story in the Independent Weekly. Michael Z Newman isn't all that wild about film festivals (and explains why), but "I have decided to throw myself into this year's [Milwaukee International Film Festival], to give it a real chance, and catch up with some of the international cinema that has been touring the circuit. Now the hard part: choosing what to see." September 20 through 30. October will be the Pioneer Theater's "Fourth Annual Month of Horror, Terror, and General Mayhem." Nathan Carley caught the traveling Bicycle Film Festival in August and writes it up in Stop Smiling.
