Ray Liotta, Kevin Corrigan, Tony Darrow and Michael Rapaport at the Tribeca Film Festival Goodfellas Reunion

“For as long as I can remember,” Henry Hill tells us, “I always wanted to be a gangster.” And so it begins, Martin Scorsese’s iconic gangster film, Goodfellas (1990). From Joe Pesci’s Tommy DeVito, demanding to know if he is “funny like I'm a clown,” to the single take of Henry and Karen walking through the Copacabana Club, Goodfellas is a masterwork of cinema, packed with memorable moments.

Stanley Nelson - Director of "The Black Panthers/ Vanguard of the Revolution" at the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival

 
The Black Panthers: Vanguard of a Revolution is director Stanley Nelson’s candid, objective look at one of the American civil rights movement’s most divisive groups. And it’s getting the theatrical release it deserves.
 
Nelson sat down for a chat at this year’s Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, where Vanguard screened to a sold out audience at Fletcher Hall, the festival’s largest venue. The film is already set for theatrical release in 13 cities and will also enjoy air time on PBS next year. But, in recent months, Nelson has taken to Kickstarter with an eye toward independently funding the film’s widespread theatrical run.
 
And, as it turns out, Nelson’s foray into the world of crowdfunding was a rousing success. At press time, Vanguard of a Revolution, with pledges totaling roughly $59,000, had eclipsed its $50,000 goal - with almost a full day to spare.

IBM Softlayer and Chicago Made at the SXSW Trade Show

South by Southwest is an institution in Austin, TX. It first came to life as a little music festival back in 1987. Now, almost 30 years later, the event has grown exponentially, covering three overlapping conventions under the same umbrella: music, film, and digital culture.

All three facets of the festival converge during the four days of the SXSW Trade Show, and the exhibitors reflect that congruence. It’s not unusual to find displays from The New York Times, NASA, and the Price is Right (along with a giant spin wheel, of course!) at the same gathering, a mixture that reflects the truly eclectic nature of all things SXSW.
