Open City Doc Fest 2020 moves online; Assembly project selections revealed

Published

on

The 10th edition of the London-set Open City Documentary Festival will move online in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Held Sept. 9 to 15, the festival will present a selection of work across 24 film events available to UK audiences as video-on-demand rentals with windowed access available during the festival period.

Filmmaker Q&As will be included in the rental packages alongside complementary shorts selected by filmmakers or the festival programming team.

A number of additional special events will also take place online. Organizers say further details will be announced in the future.

The industry program will be streamed live online during the week of the festival, and will be free to access worldwide. It will feature more than 20 events involving non-fiction practitioners working across film, audio and cross-media.

Open City Doc Fest’s regular Expanded Realities program has also been adapted for a digital format, with a number of selected and commissioned interactive projects accessible via “in-browser experiences.” These will also be free to access worldwide.

The 2020 event will have four film competitions, all with cash prizes. Feature films will compete for the Open City Award and the Emerging Filmmaker Award. Shorts will be recognized through the UK Short Award and the International Short Award, which is new for this year.

The full program will be announced on Aug. 11.

Festival director Chloe Trayner said in a statement: “As a festival, bringing people together has always been at the heart of our activity. Although our understanding of what that means has shifted during the ongoing global pandemic, we’re hopeful that we can still create an open space with our new digital iteration for people to gather and celebrate the art of non-fiction together.”

In other news, Open City Documentary Festival have announced the participants for the second edition of Assembly, a development lab for creative feature documentaries.

Projects selected are: Ghost Wives (pictured; UK), directed by Eva Weber, about a Shanghai-based journalist who sets out to investigate the case of a missing woman in China’s North; Here, the Silence is Heard (Chile), directed by Gabriela Pena and produced by Picho García, in which the filmmaker inhabits the house her grandparents were forced to abandon in exile during the military dictatorship; and Brittany Shyne’s Seeds (U.S.), a lyrical black and white portrait of a centennial African-American farm in Thomasville, Georgia.

Additional films include The Leopard (Germany/Lebanon), from director Ali El-Darsa and producer Vincent Förster, a reflection on a father and two divided cities, Berlin and Beirut; The Shadow Scholars (UK/Kenya/U.S.), from director Eloise King and producer Riel Roch-Decter, about a group of educated Kenyans who offer a window into the US$1 billion ‘Fake Essay’ industry; and Untitled Hydebank Film (UK) from director Ross McClean and producer Bronte Stahl, in which a man released from prison finds a newfound passion for working with sheep in Northern Ireland.

The lab, taking place online in September, is a project-based intensive workshop for international filmmakers working on their first or second feature.

Participants from the six selected projects will attend a six-day online program (Sept. 3 to 8) that will include talks, workshops and one-to-one mentoring.

During the program, one of the six projects selected for Assembly will be awarded £10,000 (US$12,708) in development funding for their feature film, following a closed pitch.

Instead of the travel and accommodation offer that is provided as part of the in-person version of the lab, all selected projects for this online edition will receive a participation fee.

The selected projects for Assembly were drawn from a pool of applications originating from 59 different countries.

Max Ehrich: I Learned Demi Lovato Dumped Me From the Internet!

Published

Max Ehrich insists he has no hard feelings.


But the young actor also insists he wsa done wrong by Demi Lovato.


As you likely know by now, Ehrich got engaged to Lovato on July 22, as the pair shared photos of the beach-based engagement and gushed about each other on social media.


They seemed meant to be.


Fewer than two months later, however, multiple outlets confirmed that Lovato and Ehrich were over, with sources citing two key reasons for the split:


  1. Lovato and Ehrich’s work schedules kept them apart.

  2. Ehrich was more focused on leveraging his relationship for fame than he was in actually loving Demi for the amazing woman she is.


We may never know the exact reason behind the break-up.

Max Ehrich and Lovato


But we do know the couple has broken up because Ehrich has come out and talked about it.


On his Instagram Stories Account, Ehrich claimed this week that Lovato was the one who ended the pair’s romance — and that she did not do it to his face.


Or even to his phone via text message.


“I was on the set of my new movie, Southern Gospel, with crew and cast members right next to me who literally watched me open my phone where I then opened a tabloid,” the 29-year-old actor wrote online this weekend.

Max Ehrich and Demi Lovato Throwback


Indeed, Ehrich swears this is how it all went down.


He swears he discovered that he was single by reading it first on a website.


“This is the God’s honest truth of how I found out about the ending of the engagement,” he continued.


“And have people from my film who saw the whole thing go down and helped me get back into character to continue my job.”

max statement


We’ve been enormous fans of Demi Lovato’s for years.


We’ve always admired how open she’s been about her mental health and addiction struggles and we continue to wish her the best.


But if this really transpired? If she really was unable tell her fiance that they were no longer together and Max discovered the news just like we did, by firing up the World Wide Web?


Not cool, Demi.

“I had cast and crew with families relying on me to do my job,” Ehrich continued.


“That being said, please end this narrative and focus on more important issues in the world. I love and forgive everyone involved. Let us be. Let us heal. God bless.”


Just a day earlier, Max alleged he found out about his breakup from the media.


“Imagine finding out to [sic] the status of your relationship through a tabloid,” he wrote on Instagram Stories on Saturday, September26.


“While your [sic] in the middle of filming a biopic movie about a Pastor in a Christian Church whose intention of the film is to help people.”

At the time of their reported breakup late last week, Lovato and Ehrich was already literally apart, with the former in Los Angeles and the latter filming his movie in Atlanta.


According to a People Magazine source, though, Ehrich is lying.


“Demi made Max aware that the relationship was over and it was going to come out in the press,” this publication reported on Saturday, using some rather careful language.


This makes it sound like, yes, perhaps Demi spoke to Max about their split before he read about it online — but it also makes it sound like Lovato talked to the press about it first.

Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich Together


Lovato, for her part, has only shared a couple photos since the end of her engagement.


Did she shade her ex by doing so? Some believe so.


Whatever happened between the stars, however, each is clearly moving on now.


“They were arguing a lot. There has been a lot of tension and Demi left him to get a clear head,” an insider told E! News a few days ago.


“She didn’t know who Max truly was and didn’t think he had good intentions. There were many red flags she was ignoring and trying to turn a blind eye to.”

Watch Angel Olsen Cover “I’ll Be Seeing You,” Perform Take Away Show

Published

Last month, Angel Olsen released Whole New Mess, her companion album to last year’s All Mirrors, and she’s been keeping busy during lockdown. Over on Instagram, she’s gotten in the habit of performing some stripped-down covers of songs by artists like George Harrison, Roxy Music, and Tori Amos.

Today, she posted a quick snippet of her singing “I’ll Be Seeing You,” the 1938 track that’s been covered by Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, Mildred Bailey, and many more over the years. “Working on some covers, some expected, some not,” Olsen captioned the post. “This one’s been close to the heart lately.” Could we be so lucky as to get a whole album of Olsen covers at some point? Seems like maybe!

Here’s her doing “I’ll Be Seeing You”:

View this post on Instagram

Working on some covers, some expected, some not. This one’s been close to the heart lately. “I’ll be seeing you” Original music by Sammy Fain and lyrics by Irving Kahal. Published in 1938, it was inserted into the Broadway musical Right This Way, which closed after fifteen performances. Later made famous by Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, and my favorite jazz/ swing/ blues singer Mildred Bailey. – -Speaking of which, if you’re unfamiliar check out some of Mildred Bailey’s work. From Wikipedia: “Mildred Bailey (born Mildred Rinker; February 27, 1907 – December 12, 1951) was a Native American jazz singer[2] during the 1930s, known as “The Queen of Swing”, “The Rockin’ Chair Lady” and “Mrs. Swing”. Some of her best-known hits are “For Sentimental Reasons”, “It’s So Peaceful in the Country”, “Doin’ The Uptown Lowdown”, “Trust in Me”, “Where Are You?”, “I Let a Song Go Out of My Heart”, “Small Fry”, “Please Be Kind”, “Darn That Dream”, “Rockin’ Chair”, “Blame It on My Last Affair”, and “Says My Heart”. She had three singles that made number one on the popular charts.[3]”
