Tinsel & Tine Highlights

THE INTERNATIONAL OCEAN FILM TOUR

EXPERIENCE 120 RIVETING MINUTES OF THE YEAR’S BEST OCEAN ADVENTURE FILMS AND ENVIRONMENTAL DOCS


By Le Anne Lindsay, Editor

The International Ocean Film Tour is not a film festival per se, but it is presented in conjunction with the organizers of last spring's Philadelphia Environmental Film Festival. Philly Film-goers come out on December 1, 2017 to the URBN Annex Screening Room (Drexel Campus) to experience a thrilling lineup of the very best in ocean adventures and environmental documentaries. The program features 7 new and exciting short documentaries accompanied by a sensational soundtrack. The one-of-a-kind adventure film event is appropriate for all ages.
“We are thrilled to premiere the International Ocean Film Tour in Philadelphia,” said Debra Wolf Goldstein, Executive Director of the Philadelphia Environmental Film Festival. “Being able to bring unique, environmental focused film experiences for all ages is a true mission of ours and the International Ocean Film Tour is the perfect way to celebrate that mission!”.

FULL FILM LINE-UP:

THE WEEKEND SAILOR Ramón Carlín: an amateur shows the pros how to sail around the world Seventeen yachts, seven nations, 27,000 miles at sea: 1973 marks the year a sailing trip around the world turned into a race. But when the first Whitbread Round The World Yacht Race sets off from Portsmouth, England, it’s not only the Empire’s most renowned sailing teams on the start line. There’s a dark horse in the competition: Ramón Carlín, aptly named the Weekend Sailor, decides to take part and he’s got company: With a motley crew of friends and family and next to no sailing experience, the 50-year-old Mexican embarks on a voyage to remember. Shunned by the press at first, Carlín turns into the unlikely hot contender of the race. THE WEEKEND SAILOR tells the legendary story of a man the sailing world wasn’t ready for.

Shorebreak The Clark Little Story Peter King Film Ocean 4
SHOREBREAK – THE CLARK LITTLE STORY First he was a surfer, then he became a photographer. Hawaiian Clark Little has managed to turn his passion for the ocean into a career. Chasing shorebreaks is his bread and butter and capturing the perfect wave is his vocation. His ability to frame the power of the water in a single shot makes his photos a love letter to the ocean.

THE ACCORD How to handle the North Atlantic wind: surfing in Iceland If you want to surf in Iceland, you need to know what you’re up against: The forces of nature reign fiercely on this northern island. The grimmest is the North Atlantic wind. In the mind of surfer Heiðar Logi Elíasson this wind is a red-bearded drunkard, unpredictable and capricious. The rough beauty of Iceland and its inhabitants’ black humour set the stage for THE ACCORD, the tale of a surfer making friends with a force of nature. This award-winning surf film serves up the swell ice-cold, proving what a paradise Iceland can be when wind and surfer become brothers beneath the tumultuous skies.

THE LEGACY It has taken only fifty years to destroy dozens of healthy and thriving marine ecosystems due to overfishing and pollution. Lots of species have vanished from their natural habitat. Almost twenty years ago the pacific manta ray was forced to leave his home in the Gulf of California but it has found a new one in a Mexican archipelago - after it was declared a protected area. The short film “The Legacy” shows how endangered species can recover - if we give them a chance.

A PLASTIC OCEAN It is no longer a secret that plastic waste is posing a threat to our oceans. The
A Plastic Ocean film Ocean Film Tour 4 in Philly
problem is not only the visible pollution: dirty beaches for example. Microplastics - tiny little pieces of plastic - almost invisible, are even more dangerous. It floats in our oceans and gathers in gigantic garbage patches. And from there it finds its way into the food chain. Adventurer and filmmaker Craig Leeson has tracked down plastic waste to get to the bottom of the problem. He connects our consumer behavior with ocean pollution and asks the crucial question: What must we do to save our oceans?

JOHANNA UNDER THE ICE After a serious mountain bike accident Finnish freediver Johanna Nordblad discovers her love for cold water and the crystal clear silence under the ice. We follow her in this constricting yet liberating world…

CHAPTER ONE Kiteboarding has become more and more popular in recent years. Seems like a good time to take a look back to the beginnings when Windsurfing Champion Robby Naish and Big Wave legend Pete Cabrinha were among the first ones to try the new board sport. By now Kiteboarding has also got its original heros: Keahi de Aboitiz, Youri Zoon, Bruna Kayija and many more. In „Chapter One“ we follow them to the worlds best Kiteboarding spots on the planet.

26th Annual PHILADELPHIA FILM FESTIVAL Coverage (Oct 19-29, 2017)

Tinsel & Tine's Look at : The 26th Annual PHILADELPHIA Film Festival By Le Anne Lindsay, Editor POST UPDATE #PFF26 DAY 1...

Food n Film: BURNT

Food n Film: BURNT
Bradley Cooper has more than charisma, he has an over abundance of Chi, which radiates out from him; so for me, this role as temperamental and damaged chef Adam Jones, who also inspires great love and admiration from those around him, works on the level of characterization. In fact, I think he's among a very short list of actors who would be able to pull off being so self-involved and yet likable. Doesn't hurt that he really speaks French too! READ POST

Food n Film: CHEF

Food n Film: CHEF
Much of the movie centers around the father/son relationship, and how much they learn from each other. But the real star of the film is all the food preparation, every other scene made me groan with want of everything up on that screen! Particularly the perfectly roasted and rubbed brisket, the crispy fat of the pork belly, sizzling bacon and the much ballyhooed Chocolate Lava Cake. READ POST

CITY OF GOLD

Food n Film: CHOCOLAT
If you’re a foodie movie lover who saw Lasse Hallström’s The Hundred Foot Journey (see T&T post), this summer you may be wondering what delicious visual journey might be awaiting you in the theater next. Well, how about a look back at his film Chocolat (2000), which stars French actress Juliette Binoche, Judi Dench and Johnny Depp. Hallström’s has a special talent for turning cooking into a dramatic movie journey...READ MORE

Food n Film: THE HUNDRED FOOT JOURNEY

...young Hassan, a soulful-eyed boy with lush, thick eye lashes, places his face into the sea urchin basket, and breathes in the exotic briny scent. He sticks his fingers into the aquatic ooze, takes it to his mouth and is transfixed by the taste. The vendor, oblivious to the thrusting arms of frenzied women, notices the boy and realizes he is the only one worthy of this oceanic prize; he is the one who can “truly taste.” ... READ MORE

Food n Film: JULIE & JULIA

Food n Film: JULIE & JULIA
Personally, I like the unevenness of it, because I fell in love with the post World War II, Parisian sights, sounds, food and romance between Julia and Paul. I always felt a bit jarred back into reality when the scenes returned to Julie's meltdowns and cramped kitchen.READ POST

Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE

Food n Film: EAT PRAY LOVE
Six months into my 38th year of this life, I had my first panic attack. I didn't know that's what it was until months later. Symptom after symptom starting piling up on me until there were days I could no longer move my arms or neck. The doctors told me I was suffering from an auto-immune condition that they felt was most likely Lupus. And so began my much deeper journey and exploration into the world of spirit, alternative medicine, yoga, meditation and Eat, Pray, Love. READ POST

In this 2007 film, Keri Russell stars as Jenna - a desolate diner waitress seeking solace in the art of pie-making. Trapped in an unhappy marriage, she’s eager to escape her husband and her small-town hell and sets about to make a run for it by entering an out of town pie baking contest. READ POST

Will there ever be a cap on movie prices?

Will we one day pay $20 a pop?

Why don't we pay on a scale?

A crap movie like everything Adam Sandler has ever done should cost about $4.50.
Big action movies like"Lord of the Rings", "Iron Man," "Transformers" are worth $10.
Woody Allen movie or something like "Silver Linings Playbook" $6-$7.
A chick flick or light comedy $5.75 and most Indie Films $5.25.

You could even do it by seasons - all summer block busters from May to August - $10
Sept - November 15th $3.50 - $4
Back to $10 for Thanksgiving and Christmas etc...

Or you can do it by A Actors ($9 - $10), B Actors ($6 - $7) TV actors on the big screen ($3.50 - $4)

Surely I'm not the first person to realize this makes sense. Has it been voted on in the Motion Picture Industry and then vetoed? If so, why?
