    DEERSKIN/LE DAIN (Quentin Dupieux 2019)

    This oddball crime tale, which friends said reminded them of Tarantino, reviewed here as part of this year's Rendez-Vous with French Cinema, will open May 1 as part of Greenwich Entertainment’s virtual cinema initiative. Greenwich is partnering with movie theaters that are currently closed because of Coronavirus precautions. You can support them by paying to view this new film. Every rental is $10, I believe. They also offer HUMAN NATURE, THE BOOKSELLERS, THE TIMES OF BILL CUNNINGHAM, CITIZEN K, WILD NIGHTS WITH EMILY, INCITEMENT, which I've reviewed, and other titles. See their website.

    "World's biggest film festivals" unite for 10-day streaming event May 29-June 7, 2020

    A virtual festival-of-festivals. We Are One: A Global Film Festival announced for May 29-June 7, 2020



    From Peter Bradshaw in the GUARDIAN comes word of
    the new Covid-19-related We Are One: A Global Film Festival . . . a 10-day online festival beginning 29 May curated by Jane Rosenthal of the Tribeca film festival featuring arthouse films (though not the big-ticket Hollywood items) from Cannes, Venice, Berlin and many more, streaming for free in return for an optional donation to the World Health Organization’s Covid-19 fund.
    Read the earlier GUARDIAN story HERE.

    Peter Bradshaw hastens to point out this, watching movies at home on your laptop, is very far from what film festivals are all about. And he doubts that any really important new films will be included. Still, as an opportunity for people who can't go to Cannes, Locarno, Toronto, or Park City, it's unprecedented.

    To connect with the event go here: https://www.youtube.com/WeAreOne

    But it doesn't begin till a month from now so there's nothing going on there yet.

    Film festival ditches plans to postpone event until later in the year in favour of collaborating with other festivals, rather than take festival online\- GUARDIAN.
    Cannes has decided not to reschedule to later in the year but to send its Competition films to other festivals. And there will be no Pandemic Streaming World Cannes Festival.

    Even for cinephiles who've never been there, Cannes looms largest among the world's great film festivals. I've been covering Cannes 'virtually' on Filmleaf for several years. So it's a shock to learn there will be no Cannes as a place or Cannes as a brand in the world of international cinema in any form this year. Cannes will disappear.

    Really?

    A Guardian story explains.

    Relic.



    A new (mainly?) virtual but also theatrical release of interest is RELIC. Filmleaf's Sundance 2020 coverage:
    RELIC (Natalie Erika James) is an "unsettling debut" by a Japanese Austrialian fllmmaker, a "slow-burn haunted house movie" that turns into a "disturbingly effective allegory for the ravages of dementia" -- a disease that this time spreads through the entire family. The "compelling performances" headline Emily Mortimer and Bella Heathcote, recounts HOLLYWOOD REPORTER'S David Rooney.
    IFC presents RELIC directed by Natalie Erika James, written by Natalie Erika Jame and Christian White, starring Emiy Morimer, Bella Heathcote, Robyn Nevin

    Relic WILL OPEN ON JULY 10 IN THEATERS AND ON VOD/DIGITAL RENTAL

    NEW TEASER AND SOCIAL TOOLKIT AVAILABLE HERE
