Berlin Reports Coming In!

  • Noah Baumbach’s new film GREENBERG, starring Ben Stiller and MFF alum Greta Gerwig, is getting great reviews!
  • Also, here’s a quote from Berlin about Matt Porterfield’s PUTTY HILL , from Shane Danielson for IndieWire:

“But there are moments here of startling compositional grace, flashes of awkward honesty and discomfiting intimacy—and one killer sequence, at a memorial service for a recently deceased youth, which quickly turns into an extended karaoke session, courtesy of Bob’s “Rebel Rouser’s DJ Hire”. Keep them in mind for your next wedding, bar mitzvah or white-trash funeral.”

News from Berlin

Word’s coming back from PUTTY HILL producer Steve Holmgren that the first Berlin screenings went perfectly- they’ve already got a lot of interest from film festivals around the world. Next stop for PUTTY HILL is SXSW in Austin, then MFF 2010. Don’t forget the kickstarter donation site.

Matt Porterfield’s PUTTY HILL to preview in Berlin!

I’ve had a couple of e mails from Matt Porterfield. His latest group email is from Berlin where his new film, PUTTY HILL, will have its world premier. Pre-screening, it’s already being called one of the “most anticipated” films at Berlin, side by side with new films from Polanski and Scorsese. I blogged earlier about the fundraising night Matt held at the Charles, featuring some footage about the making of, and clips of the film itself. There is still time to donate online.
