  1. For this session of our own little film club, I chose HIS GIRL FRIDAY (1940), the quintessential screwball comedy from versatile director Howard Hawks, whose adventure drama ONLY ANGELS HAVE WINGS we watched in December at the recommendation of @Jake Gittes. You're all in for a real treat today. Known for its rapid fire dialogue and sharp witted romance, AFI has called it the 19th greatest comedy film ever made, and the film has become an object of loving parody for decades. Following the madcap and scheming relationship that blossoms between newspaper crew members Walter Burns (Cary Grant) and Hildy Johnson (Rosalind Russell), scheming and hilarity ensue in equal measure. Just be sure to pay attention, or you'll miss the non stop dialogue! https://letterboxd.com/johncassavetes/film/his-girl-friday/ Interestingly, this is one of the few films we've seen so far that's actually in the Public Domain. Even the play it was based on, The Front Page by Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur, is still under copyright. Can't make it tonight? Hou can easily find the film on YouTube. Hell, here you go! Either way, let's enjoy this unique and wonderful little comedy together this afternoon!
  2. 2020 has been one hell of a year, and 2021 doesn’t look like it’s going to be too different. A lot of us didn’t get the chance to venture out into the cinema as often as we’d liked (and that’d putting it mildly). That being said, we firmly believe that the show must go on! The 9th Annual BOFFY Ceremony will happen as planned!

  3. The works of the late Satoshi Kon have inspired me to pick a more modern classic, and I think the themes of hope and finding love and joy in unexpected places resonate deeply as we head into the new year. Set during Christmas Eve, this is another one of those films where the plot had the holiday as a backdrop instead of necessarily a direct correlation to the story. Following three homeless misfits as they help care for an abandoned child and return her to her home, it drives home the theme of empathy, class, found families. The film has been compared to Hirokazu Kore-ada’s masterpiece Shoplifters in this regard. Beyond merely capturing hope in a bleak situation, a theme we’ve no double run into frequently over this past year, it showcases the possibilities of animation when escaping a gaze strictly of western mass media. I love Disney’s output as much as the next person but explore the rest of the world and you’ll find brave, surprising, and truly beautiful works. This is actually my first official pick for this film club, but I hope to keep adding more films like this, from sharing a few of my favorites to making exciting new discoveries with you. Thank you all, and I hope you enjoy this lovely little film with us today! @Wondy and I will get the link to you ASAP.

  4. The director of Johnny Johnny, thank you very much.
  5. We saved the best for last. It is time to award Best Picture. The runner up is... And the winner is... Congratulations to all, and have a wonderful night!
  6. Our third and penultimate award is Best Director. This was by far the most competitive category of the night. Four of the five films in contention differed by one point each, creating two ties of one point apart. The runner up is... And the winner is...
  7. The next award will be for Best Performance. For this category, we implemented a unique way to narrow down candidates. Each judge picked their top ten performances of the films in competition. Films in all three lists were then ranked and placed in competition against each other. There were six performances who appeared in our final round. The runner up is... And the winner is...
  8. The CYIFF Awards - Volume 1 The three judges of the festival - @Rorschach, @Reddroast, and myself - wish to thank everyone who participated, be it as an audience member or a filmmaker. After a careful discussion, we have come to various decisions on awards. Many decisions came extremely down to the wire, but we are grateful for the pool of talent presented this year, and wish to congratulate all involved. Our first award will be for Best Screenplay. The runner up is... And the winner is...
  9. If that happened LUMBERJANES would have been nominated for Best Picture and nothing else.
  10. Please remove the following. The Epsilon Syndicate: Art of the Dream Be More Chill BH3, or Marion, Cassie, and the Great Supernova of Y8 The Epsilon Syndicate: Operation Copycat Hotel Amora
