iCM Film Festival 3 - Open Jury Invitation

#1

Post by outdoorcats » October 8th, 2019, 11:58 pm

Hello ICMForum. If you're reading this thread you're invited to join the jury for our third "film festival," where you will help select, discuss, and judge a group of films from the past few years programmed by beavis, Fergenaprido, flaiky, Ivan, sacmersault, and myself.

Dates: Likely will start the first week of November (and run for 3 weeks), though you will have some extra time to watch the films before it starts.

Qualifications: You want to. And, you can watch at least 14 films in the time frame. (from when the lineup will be finalized to the end of the festival, probably about 5 weeks)

Note: Some things are a little different this year for our returners:

1) No jury president. We did fine without one the past couple years, so just direct your questions to one of the programmers.

2) Smaller overall pool of films. We heard your feedback last year so we're going to try to keep most of the sections to 4 films.

3) The Main Slate selection process will be different this year. You will still vote based on what looks interesting, but it will be from a much smaller list, in order to give programmers a bigger voice in picking the Main Slate (we do sort through a ton of films throughout the year for you guys after all ;) )

But I'm jumping the gun. Who wants to sign up? And what questions do you have?

So far just waiting for the slate to be release so I can start tracking things down. I believe I've already demonstrated my active participation in the prior two festivals. Given we're looking at November, it shouldn't be too difficult to make room for the festival titles (I haven't seen yet).

Only question: last year I believe the rule for 'open' jurors was to have seen everything on a slate. I know that kept me from voting as I was unable to get a couple movies from my library until after the festival. Will such a rule still be in place?

Thanks!

Short answer, yes. Longer answer: jurors should definitely watch the 10 films in the Main Slate and please try to watch another 4 from another section (if not enough jurors do the second part then we can't give out awards for the individual sections).

In the next few days I should have a list of 16 films for you, 10 of which will become the Main Slate (should you join the jury, you will help pick which 10 by voting how interested you are in them). You can check all 16 of them and see if your library system has them or there is some other way you can watch them.

I know more than 2 people want to join, so I'll give this a bump.

For those of you in as jurors, you will vote how interested you are in watching the following titles on a scale of 1-10 (1 not interested, 10 very interested). Do not vote strategically! You can PM me your votes or post them here.

3/4 (Ilian Metev - 2017) Trailer

Abacus: Small Enough to Jail (Steve James - 2016) Trailer

Tesnota / Closeness (Kantemir Balagov - 2017) Trailer

Columbus (Kogonada - 2017) Trailer

Cuba and the Cameraman (Jon Alpert - 2017) Trailer

Jusqu'à la garde / Custody (Xavier Legrand - 2017) Trailer

La libertad del Diablo / Devil's Freedom (Everardo González - 2017) Trailer

I Am Not Your Negro (Raoul Peck - 2016) Trailer

Juste la fin du monde / It's Only the End of the World (Xavier Dolan - 2016) Trailer

Madeline's Madeline (Josephine Decker - 2018) Trailer

Nuestro tiempo / Our Time (Carlos Reygadas - 2018) Trailer

Rafiki (Wanuri Kahiu - 2018) Trailer

The Rider (Chloé Zhao - 2017) Trailer

La enfermedad del Domingo / Sunday's Illness (Ramón Salazar - 2018) Trailer

Support the Girls (Andrew Bujalski - 2018) Trailer

The top 9 will join centerpiece Ash is Purest White to become the Main Slate (the others will become part of the other sections).

Not really sure how to answer. I've actually seen 7/15 titles listed above. Should I give a rating of what I thought about that film? If I answer truthfully, I doubt I really want to watch any again, but that's mostly because I don't do rewatches much as there is still so much I want to see. However, for the purposes of the FF, I'm happy to do whatever helps the festival most. I do have my IMDb ratings for those seven films.

Sorry, I forgot that part - if you've seen it, rate it out of 10. :cheers: If you watched the film and have a pretty fresh memory of it, you won't need to watch it again for the festival.

I'd like to be in once again. I'll look into the titles I'm unfamiliar with and post my ratings over the next couple of days.

Thanks to the programmers and to you, Outdoorcats! This is something I've come to look very forward to over the last few years.
That's all, folks!

Oh, and I can't commit to being a jury member, but I did volunteer to gather data a while back and would be happy to do so.

I have to be honest, few of these made me instantly excited. I am really happy that Ash is the Purest White is the centerpiece. Can't wait to see it. Of my unseen, all but one surprisingly, I am most excited by I Am Not Your Negro, which has been on my watch list a long time. It is Only the End of the World is one of my very favourite '16 films and I hope it gets a spot - unless it is overseen. Anyways, here's my ratings, may tweak them slightly later. More excited to see what will be in the arthouse selection.

3/4 (Ilian Metev - 2017) Trailer 6

Abacus: Small Enough to Jail (Steve James - 2016) Trailer 3

I Am Not Your Negro (Raoul Peck - 2016) Trailer 9

Juste la fin du monde / It's Only the End of the World (Xavier Dolan - 2016) Trailer 10 (already seen)

Ash is Purest White (Jia) is our centerpiece. Meaning, it has such wide support from our programmers that it's in the Main Slate automatically.

I won't commit to being a juror beforehand this time. I might come around watching all movies on the Main Slate and/or some other categories and vote if do.
