Filmmaker Michael Moore wants to help the documentary industry by offering a few pointers to those who have struggled to draw the crowds. First, he wants you to remove the word ‘documentarian’ from your vocabulary, declaring “we are filmmakers.”
According to the news website RealScreen, Moore’s speech at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival included 13 tips for documentary filmmakers on how to create “theater-oriented” films.
For Moore’s 13-point manifesto and the original article by Manori Ravindran, visit the link.

Finally made it to Florida Film Festival in Orlando…ten days, 170 films at three theaters in Maitland, just north of Winter Park and the metropolis of Orlando. Just saw Ida at the lovely Enzian Theater. The beautifully shot, compelling film follows a young Jewish girl contemplating joining a convent, but not before embarking on a journey to find her roots and explore life outside the convent where she was raised in bleak Poland.
It’s wonderful to see crowds of film goers clustered around the lovely grounds and Eden Bar here…23 years, supportive sponsors and dedicated audiences are clearly a formula for success. The Enzian, a dinner theater with tables and couches in addition to festival seating provides a perfect venue for the festival, too.
Tonight’s features include a Filmmaker Welcome Party (invitation only) and a series of enticing shorts titled Love. Tomorrow’s big highlights are a chat with Susan Sarandon following a screening of Deadman Walking (standing room only) and and Industry Party. It’s not too late to catch three more days and nights of films and parties…come check it out: www.floridafilmfestival.com
As oil production goes, Florida isn’t much of a player. The state produced less than 2 million barrels last year, which is how much oil Texas pumps from its wells each day.
That’s about to change as the revolution in oil drilling technology comes to Florida.
A Texas company has already received permission from the state to drill an exploratory well on the land. The Dan A. Hughes Co. is now seeking permission for an injection well that would accommodate the millions of gallons of toxic brine produced in the drilling process.
