A funny thing happened on the way to jazz vet Charles Lloyd’s first live streaming concert in the pandemic era on Saturday, linked to the Healdsburg Jazz Festival. An unexpected glut of interest resulted in a technical glitch, and the intended audience, eager to catch this elder jazz statesman (and longtime Santa Barbara resident) overloaded the circuits, suffering through the dreaded “Internal Server Error” slap down. The show, from the

Dividing countries with a wall may be a populist political strategy for countries worried about immigration but it is the families and workers who must travel to both sides every day that pay a significant human cost. Ameen Nayfeh’s new film 200 Meters is about a family divided between the West Bank and Israel, a journey-film in which a group of strangers, each with their

The Mid-South Barbecue Festival has become a tradition for Mt. Pleasant. But this weekend, originally planned to host the festival’s 12th annual event, the city’s Main Street will remain void of barbecue aficionados, children dressed for the event’s costume contest and competitors carefully preparing their slow cooked specialties.
Like many celebrations across the state, including Columbia’s Mule Day, the festival’s organizers have decided to
Once every season, Steam likes to hold the Steam Game Festival to showcase various demos that you can play. These help showcase what developers are working on, and maybe garner a few fans along the way. Autumn is no different, with plenty of developers coming out to showcase new demos for the next week. With how many demos there are, it may be difficult to figure out which ones to

Many Second World War films end as the Allies arrive and as peace is declared. However as Primo Levi examined in his memoir The Truce, peace is a messy and brutal process. Although Czech film Shadow Country begins at the start of the war, its second half, set after 1945, is more interesting as it tells a very unfamiliar story.
Set in a
The pandemic won’t stop Milwaukee from powering up this holiday season as the city’s annual Holiday Lights Festival announced it will flip the switch on the bright winter tradition on Nov. 19.
Running through New Year’s Day, the Holiday Lights Festival will use more than 500,000 lights to transform three Downtown parks into “Community Spirit Park” (Cathedral Square Park), “Tinsel Town Express” (Pere Marquette Park) and “Polar Plaza” (Zeidler

When we think of modern America and particularly Las Vegas we see corporate influence, and a country fractured by its political system. But what we rarely see is that for ordinary citizens barely anything has changed for the better in decades. Bill and Turner Ross’ new documentary Bloody Nose, Empty Pockets explores this in their stark but hopeful presentation of a day in the

The life of Gothic novelist Shirley Jackson is reimagined as a slice of the Gothic itself in this sumptuous looking film starring Elisabeth Moss in the lead role. Looking just like Jackson, this must be the best role Moss has had since starring in The Handmaid’s Tale and it seems, thankfully, a million miles from The Invisible Man

This new Australian horror begins with one of the genre’s most familiar trope: the overflowing bath tub. It’s such a common scene that it’s a wonder that any woman runs a bath in a house that has signs of eerie goings-on. One of the best examples of the scary bath is in the underrated What Lies Beneath, Robert

The hustler movie has been undergoing some changes in recent years, broadening its perspective to include female protagonists and even the wider consequences of their crimes. Miranda July’s latest comedy Kajillionaire showing as part of the London Film Festival adds a family dynamic as the Dynes attempt a series of small-scale frauds.
Theresa, John and their adult daughter Old Dolio subsist on petty larcenies such

Opening the London Film Festival for the second time in two years is a rare achievement, especially for a director with only four previous full-length features to his name. But Steve McQueen is no ordinary filmmaker. Part of the Small Axe series created for the BBC to be shown later in the year, Mangrove is the culmination of everything he has

Inside, with suites fresh from a refurb, things are an intriguing blend of Venetian seaside and Moorish allure, all those years of glamour reverberating around the corridors, which are vast enough to allow for the extensive luggage guests used to bring for month-long sojourns here. Those were the days.

The Milwaukee Film Festival is back and like you’ve never seen it before: at home.
With the pandemic still ongoing, like everyone, Milwaukee Film and its annual Cream City explosion of cinema has had to adjust, going virtual this year with a digital streaming platform for all of its screenings.

While the coronavirus pandemic has led to some film festivals cancelling, some going entirely virtual, and some attempting to crack on as normal, the 64th London Film Festival is going with a hybrid model – so is both physical and virtual this year.
It means movie fans
The world has gone awry since the pandemic first began in early 2020, and major events have been canceled as a result, from the Met Gala to Coachella. For the most part, however, film festivals have adapted to complications arising from COVID-19, and this year’s Atlanta Film Festival, which ran from Sept. 17 to Sept. 27, was no exception. With a mix of virtual and drive-in screenings, the festival continued
