[212] Film and Festivals, Issue 14

I should have posted this over a week ago, but here it is. The new issue of Film and Festivals Magazine.

This month's focus is the blooming Latin American cinema scene. There's a fantastic line up of articles, including interviews with filmmaker Carlos Cuaron, and actors Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, ahead of the release of Cuaron's directorial feature debut, Rudo y Cursi. There are also great interviews with Alfonso Cuaron, who talks about the Mexican film industry, and composer Gustavo Santaolalla, who talks about his currently-ubiquitous film music.

Also, make sure to check out the brace of features on Latin American film, including Sandy Mandelberger's piece on Gay Latin American cinema, and Christiaan Harden's look at the current state of the documentary in the region.

This month, I contributed the UK festival previews column. Three of the festivals covered have already passed, and the fourth, the Workhouse Festival in Powys, is finishing today. But you can still read it here.

Read the full issue at the Film and Festivals website.
