Filmmaker Magazine reports from this weekend's FIND conference. So does Screen.

The AFI will award director Mike Nichols its 38th Life Achievement Award at a gala tribute in Los Angeles next summer; TV Land will broadcast the show.

Ad Age explains why the new FTC blog regulations are silly and unenforceable.

Director Roland Emmerich has a great eye but he's as capable of cheesy disappointments like Godzilla and 10,000 B.C. as he is of delivering epic entertainments like Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow. The most recent clips for 2012 look unbelievably silly:

The Businessweek exodus begins.

The NYT sees the Roman Polanski case as a culture clash between 70s culture and today.

MGM is pushing back Joss Whedon's horror picture for a year in order to turn it into a 3-D film. But where will MGM be in a year?

Ten surprising (if not great) movies directed by women.

Six clips of parkour scenes in movies, from Banlieue 13 to Casino Royale .

The reason why studios are suddenly collapsing video-on-demand windows? They want to combat sagging DVD sales and cheap Redbox rentals, writes Variety's Diane Garrett.

Wired's Chris Anderson keeps arguing for free.

Peter Broderick and Scott Kirsner will give a one-day crash course on indie film distribution on November 7 at USC.

In January, the Producers Guild of America will give its 2010 Milestone Award to Sony co-chiefs Amy Pascal and Michael Lynton, who just happen to be on a box office roll.
