Febiofest on Demand
Such a section used to be called “Straight to Video” at festivals, and it tried to introduce films which were not intended for regular cinema screenings, only for other distribution, be it VHS or later DVD. VOD is the next step away from sharing an art work together in the darkness of a screening hall in favour of watching alone at home in front of a computer screen or tv. This is why we welcome Bonton Film’s offer to present several of its selected films at Febiofest before they appear in its selection of “Video on Demand”. This is how the section, symptomatically called Febiofest On Demand, came into being. It is just the beginning, introducing three films, so it might be slightly exaggerated to call it a section. However, we believe that this initiative in Febiofest's program will grow in the future, that other distributors will join as well, and that we will enable you, the viewers, the unique chance to see the gems of current cinema on the magical screen, at least here at Cinestar multiplex. The three star-cast films travel to the past, both real and fictional: Love & Mercy is an unusual biography of the singer / songwriter of the Beach Boys, Brian Wilson, which comprises two time lines – in the 1960s, the extremely successful Wilson (portrayed by Paul Dano) goes into seclusion to create “the best album of all times,” and two decades later, Wilson (played by John Cusack) has become a confused man tormented by the voices in his head and the “treatment” provided by therapist Eugene Landy (Paul Giamatti). The score for the critically acclaimed film was composed by one of the most original soundtrack composers of today, Atticus Ross. Mental instability, in connection with genius, is at the centre of the story of chess legend Bobby Fischer (Tobey Maguire), concentrated in the dramatic duel of the “miraculous boy from Brooklyn” with the Soviet grandmaster Boris Spassky in Reykjavik in 1972. Fischer's unique mind succumbs to a whirlwind of paranoia when the chess championship turns into a closely watched battle during the Cold War. And The Dressmaker depicts 1950’s Australia where seamstress Kate Winslet struggles with her town's animosity in order to uncover the truth about a crime from long ago.
