Celebrating cinema with the Oscars 2016

Predicting the 2016 Academy Award winners

It's that time of year again, folks. Time for Hollywood to dress up and throw statues at one another in a whirlwind of self-celebration and ego stroking.

That's right it's Oscar time!

I'll be the first to admit that I love the Academy Awards while also acknowledging that they are growing increasingly irrelevant and out of touch. I love the movies and this is the biggest celebration of cinema on the American pop culture calendar.

Movies on the Midcoast with CIFF

Camden International Film Festival marks eighth year

CAMDEN Documentary filmmakers are descending on midcoast Maine to take part in the latest incarnation of the Camden International Film Festival, taking place in and around Camden from Sept. 27 through Sept. 30.

CIFF is entering its eighth year and in that relatively short time has become one of the preeminent documentary film festivals both in the United States and in the world. The festival aims to provide a fully immersive theatergoing experience. Not only is the festival offering screenings of 70-plus films spread across four primary venues (the Opera House and Bayview Street Cinema in Camden, the Strand Theatre and Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland), but they also offer a variety of Q&A sessions with filmmakers, as well as related events such as the Points North Forum and Panoptic.

A few fine films for fall

With the shift in the seasons, we also get a bit of a shift in our cinematic offerings. After a summer that featured blockbuster after blockbuster, a season of nine-figure box office dynamos led by all-time high-grossing superhero movies such as 'The Avengers' and 'The Dark Knight Rises,' things are calming down a bit this fall.

That's not to imply that there aren't some potentially great films coming out over the coming months.

The fall of 2012 has an awful lot to offer. You've got the triumphant return of a great director with Paul Thomas Anderson's 'The Master.' You've got a once-in-a-generation talent like Daniel Day-Lewis taking on the title role in the biopic 'Lincoln.' There's melodrama and intrigue, goofy animation and gritty science fiction. It looks like there could be some really good movies coming our way.

And also 'Twilight.'
