The ITVS Indie Roundup

Posted on September 28, 2012

A curated list of indie news and recommendations from ITVS’s Rebecca Huval. 

Has the film industry given up on liberal arts? At least two recent movies suggest that might be the case. The 50th New York Film Festival opens up today at the Lincoln Center, and will hopefully calm our fears about the death of cinema

West Coasters yearning for a film festival would be wise to check out the Berlin and Beyond Film Festival in San Francisco starting this weekend. Courtesy of 7x7, here are film recommendations from the festival, which celebrates the cinema of German-speaking countries. 

For a Friday laugh, watch the most horrendously acted death scene from the 1974 Turkish martial-arts movie, Kareteci Kiz. Are you a Malcolm In the Middle fan? IFC just compiled their favorite picks of actor Bryan Cranston’s (Malcolm’s dad’s) animated film roles

Now you have no excuse. Filmmaker IQ compiled 46 tutorials on the web that will teach you the latest about Final Cut Pro X. 

Adventure-seekers might enjoy this three-minute Uzbek pop video, sung by the president’s daughter, which shows off the magnificent architecture of the city of Bukhara.
