The Eugene Film Society website has launched and is now accepting registration for this summer’s EFS 72 Hour Music Video Competition.
The latest Film Fanatic looks at a funny Jim Carrey selfie, Luc Besson possibly making a sequel to ‘The Fifth Element’ and a free Don Jon screening at the Bijou.
Fans of local cinema and theater rejoice because there’s plenty of options to entertain you. In local cinema, four new films debut and they range from sex addiction and anime to dirty politics.
Hello local cinephiles. With Christmas coming on Sunday it’s a predictably light week for new movies. But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing new opening this week. The Bijou has one new film debuting and it’s about the end of the world. Kind of depressing for the holidays but if that doesn’t interest you, they’re also holding a special two-night screening of It’s a Wonderful Life. Now that’s more like it.
One new drama about family (both on and offscreen) debuts at the Bijou this week, and two new films open at David Minor: a stoner comedy involving pizza, explosives and drug dealers, and another film about a well-intentioned idiot.
It’s Thanksgiving week so not a whole lot of new stuff debuting at your local cinemas. The Bijou has a French drama opening, while David Minor debuts a summer blockbuster on Friday.
This week doesn’t bring too many changes to the local cinema scene. But there are a few debuts that are worth mentioning, including a film about a father and son relationship, a doctor attempting to create a new form of skin and a movie that is so bad you have to see it to believe it.
If you like unconventional love stories than the two films playing at the Bijou through Thursday should satisfy you. If you want to show off to your friends how much of a film buff you are, than wait until Friday as two of the most acclaimed films of the year open.
A new slate of films open this Friday at the Bijou: a well-reviewed documentary, a film featuring the biggest cast ever,and the return of a popular film from a familiar director. In addition to a new set of films debuting, the Bijou will also be hosting a one-night event on Friday showcasing an old horror classic with a new interpretation on the sound of the film by a local band.
Where can you find independent, documentary and foreign films on the big screen? The Bijou of course and all those genres are represented this week. An examination of the changing landscape of a southern state, a French crime thriller and a documentary about a famous poet and photographer highlight a typically creative week of unconventional cinema at the art house theater.
