Francophenia

Weekend Preview:  What to watch from "Raven" to "Five-Year Engagement" to "Elles."

Upcoming anticipated features:At the theater owners convention, CInemaCon: Pixar stole the show at the Disney Panel with a first half-hour screening of "Brave."  (Watch the new trailer for "Brave" here.) They also announced new films and dates.  We looked at CinemaCon in 3-D: Martin Scorsese and Ang Lee and Fox Oscar Contender 'Life of Pi,' and surveyed the show-and-tells for Warner Bros. and Paramount and Sony and Universal (Immersed in Movies Talks 3-D with 'Men in Black 3' Director Barry Sonnenfeld.) And we showed the first look at Tarantino's "Django Unchained."  Controversial? Hell, Yes!

In our festival coverage, we catch Robert Redford in a rare appearance promoting Sundance London.  At Tribeca, James Franco shows more of his imperturbable self in his film "Francophenia (or: Don’t Kill Me, I Know Where the Baby Is)"- our review here.  At the Tribeca Talks Panel, we break down the three things you should know about short-filmmaking, with tips from experts including Morgan Spurlock and Jason Spingarn-Koff.  Tribeca Institute announced Latin American Media Arts Fund winners; we break down the awardees here.

Our update on San Francisco International Film Festival, with everything from Jonathan Lethem to "Oslo, August 21st," "Queen of Versailles," and "The Sheik and I."  More SFIFF reviews of "Goodbye," "Robot & Frank," "How to Survive a Plague," and "Fourth Dimension," here.  Our notes on "Farewell My Queen, "Trishna," and "Twixt" here.

A look back at festivals, Tom Brueggemann takes on Cannes 2011 Box Office recap: some played, some didn't.  Cannes 2012 news: Brazilian auteur Carlos Diegues to head Camera d'or Jury.
