Nebraska at the New York Film Festival with Alexander Payne and Bruce Dern

The newest movie by celebrated filmmaker Alexander Payne, Nebraska, is an arresting film about a man developing dementia who journeys with his son to claim a lottery win hundreds of miles away. Set in the state of its namesake, Nebraska displays the grit, humor, and taciturn spirit of the people of that state through powerful black-and-white imagery and the father–son relationship that develops throughout the film. Nominated for the Palme d'Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, Nebraska is a favorite for the 2014 Academy Awards, especially in the Best Actor category.

In this panel held at the 2013 New York Film Festival, Alexander Payne, the filmmaker, and three of the film's primary actors—Bruce Dern, Will Foote, and June Squibb—talk about the experience of shooting the film. The creative, nourishing atmosphere that Payne created on set receives high praise from the actors, and Payne discusses several of the stylistic choices he made for the film.

The 51st New York Film Festival: "12 Years a Slave" Director Steve McQueen

British filmmaker Steve McQueen has secured his place in American cinema with his third feature film, 12 Years A Slave. The film is an odds-on favorite for multiple Academy Award nominations. It is based on the autobiography of the same name by Solomon Northup, a free black man who was sold into slavery in Louisiana for twelve years before his true legal status was discovered in the mid-19th century.

The 51st New York Film Festival: All is Lost

The 2013 film All is Lost is one sailor's amazing story of survival in the Indian Ocean after his boat is struck by a cargo container. Potentially more amazing is that the film was made at all with a $9 million budget, a thin script, and almost no dialogue. It is gripping, sparse, and haunting in production, relying minimally on music and almost entirely on a close watch of every move the unnamed main character makes. When J. C. Chandor envisioned the film, he had only one actor in mind: Robert Redford.

re:3D's GIGABOT Delivers Cutting Edge Technology at SXSW 2013

Bringing power back to the people is Austin start-up company re:3D and their newest product Gigabot: one of the first low-cost, industrial strength, large format 3D printers, making it available to both small businesses and emerging worldwide markets. What can you make with a 3D printer, you ask? Well, pretty much anything. From jewelry to footwear, prototypes for the medical industries and  education and everything inbetween, a 3D printer can do it all (almost). And with the new lower cost Gigabot, we're betting we're about to see a whole lot more. Already being referred to as 'a manufacturer's worst nightmare', the Gigabot is the beginning of a new world of possibilities for the entrepreneurial inclined. It only makes sense, then, that they are paired with Start-Up Chile, a program of the Chilean Government that attracts world-class early stage entrepreneurs to start their businesses in Chile.
