Hot Docs Today, Cannes Tomorrow

Ulka
Ulka Śniegowska
 lives in Wroclaw Poland and is the Director of The American Film Festival held in November there which also features the new and increasingly influential U.S. In Progress, a chance for American indies to be seen by independent distributors around Europe. Its sister festival, The Champs Elysees Film Festival held in June in Paris also hosts U.S. In Progress.

Ula, as she is called, is currently at Hot Docs in Toronto.  She recently sent this update to me:

"I'm in Toronto and saw Who is Dayani Cristal remembering you liked it and I also loved it. There is a great selection here. I saw The Kill Team yesterday — wow! shocking! Kill Team is a doc about the army conspiracy against low rank soldier in Afghanistan. Next I am going to;see one of the best (presumably) docs of the season: Teenage. Fascinating accomplishment in editing that makes us question our perception of the past and which blurs the boundaries between fiction and factography. I found out Matt Wolfe played at the New Horizons in 2008 and he definitely is a very talented and brave filmmaker. Terms and Conditions May Apply is a great but scary movie- about privacy policy.

John Sloss of Cinetic, gave a talk that was as informative as it was entertaining, however not very inclusive or inviting towards filmmakers.  He disclosed his ongoing project, the curatorial platform part of Filmbuff. He also reminded the audience of Cinetic's largest doc success: Exit through the Gift Shop and declared himself a great doc fan. Next, after the War Room screening, I will be seeing DA Pennebaker in person, she will be giving a talk and receiving a Honorary Lifetime Award. Hot Docs is great in general. The Sun is out but I miss home and look forward to Cannes."

In Cannes Ula will be on the jury of CiCAE, the Art-House association in Directors Fortnight.

You can see more on Ula's unending travels to world film events on her Facebook .
