Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
While finishing his own film, Langer discovered a dearth of hard--and current--facts about festivals to which he might hawk it. Thus, he created this handbook for independent filmmakers and audiences. Seemingly all festivals are included, from Cannes, Berlin, and Sundance to the Hiroshima International Animation Festival and Nordic Film Days. In addition to listing hundreds of venues with address, entry deadline, festival history, ticket price, and average number of films screened, this work contains interviews with six festival directors and an annotated guide to the best theaters. The first chapter, "Best of the Fests: A Completely Biased Guide to the Sixteen Festivals Worldwide That Are Worth the Trip," expresses Langer's penchant for entertaining critique. Of the Cleveland International Film Festival he writes, "Any festival that hosts a seminar entitled `Is Hollywood Killing the Movies?' and then plugs screenwriter Joe Ezsterhas (Showgirls and Basic Instinct) as its featured opening night guest has to be a bit schizophrenic." More detailed and personal than Internet festival sites, this work is well worth the price.--Kim R. Holston, American Inst. for Chartered Property Casualty Underwriters, Malvern, PA
