In this issue

1) 1999 International Festival of New Cinema, New Media
Donato Totaro, 11-19-99
The continual blur of Montreal Film festivals does not allow the seasoned filmgoer much chance to breathe, let alone contemplate each individual festival within the city’s cinematic global whole.

2) The Cinémathèque Québécoise Goes Grand
Donato Totaro, 11-19-99
For its annual benefit screening, La Cinémathèque Québécoise offered a restored 35-mm print of Paul Leni’s searing expressionistic historical drama, The Man Who Laughs.

3) Cinema du Parc does Repertory Well
Donato Totaro, 11-19-99
My curiosity about a film entitled Burn, Witch, Burn has been peaked since the day I purchased an original one-sheet of the film in the mid-1970’s. With the film still unavailable on video, I had written off the likelihood of every seeing the film.

4) Iranian Cinema: Before the Revolution
Shahin Parhami, – 12-01-99
An in-depth historical analysis of pre-Revolution Iranian cinema.

5) 1999 International Festival of New Cinema, New Media
Jamie Gaetz, 12-01-99
The 28th International Festival of New Cinema and New Media set the marker posts on the route to the future. This one festival comprises two very separate events that, for the moment, have little to do with each other.

6) AmérAsia: Korean New Wave and Beyond
Donato Totaro, 12-10-99
The 1st AmérAsia International Film & Video Festival (Dec. 3-Dec.12, 1999) is following a fairly recent Montreal trend in Asian themed film events, but differs in its slant.
