Viceland featuring Ellen Page's anticipated LGBT show »Gaycation« will launch on February 29, 2016

Vice Media and A+E Networks gave TV critics an early taste of what "Viceland" has in store at the Television Critics Association press tour held at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena, California on Wednesday. The forthcoming channel — a project that’s more than a year in the making — will launch in 70 million homes in the former home of A+E's History spin-off H2 on February 29, with each show running between four and eight episodes.

Following a lengthy, colorful and millenial-minded clip reel to kick off the session, Oscar-winning writer and director Spike Jonze, a longtime Vice partner and creative director for the company, introduced a mix of various filmmakers on stage to showcase edgy titles like F*ck That's Delicious, Weediquette and Ellen Page's anticipated »Gaycation«.

Viceland

In the show, Page and her best friend as well as co-producer, Ian Daniel, travel the world to explore LGBT communities — "the joys and triumphs, the difficulties and the sadness, and hoping to explore what it means to be LGBT all over the world," she said. In the first episode, the duo goes to Japan; in another, Ellen confronts Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz at the Iowa State Fair about gay and transgender rights. Their exchange went viral, but the actress explained there's more to it: "It was wonderful that he spoke to me. You can watch the episode when it comes out and come to your own conclusion about that situation."

One of the more risky situations while filming an episode occurred during a confrontation with a masked anti-gay cop in Brazil who proudly talks about killing homosexuals. In a promo clip from the series, Page is seen standing with the man and asking her male co-host, "I want to say I'm gay, do you think it's safe?" "Of course there’s a nervousness. There’a a nervousness driving there," the actress noted. "It was probably one of the more scary, nerve-wracking moments I've had. I feel like when we're in that mode, we probably feel, maybe in a naive way that it's all going to be okay." "A person who is standing in front of you is saying I've killed people like you, I'm going to do it again, and there are other people like me who are killing people like you ... It's scary in that it's just hard to hear," added Daniel.

Ellen Page and director Patricia Rozema to shoot another movie in March 2016 / Ellen on the cover of DIVA

During the 25th Courmayeur Noir in Festival in Courmayeur, Italy earlier this month, director Patricia Rozema talked to several journalists and revealed that she is going to shoot another movie with Ellen Page in March 2016. The story will take place in Paris in the twenties and will be (loosely) based on Sylvia Beach and her "Shakespeare and Company" bookstore. You can check out the whole interview below courtesy of Antonio Maria Abate !! However, please be warned that the video also contains spoilers in regard to »Into the Forest« !! The segment on the new project starts at the 18:00 mark.



Historical background

Sylvia Beach (March 14, 1887 – October 5, 1962), born Nancy Woodbridge Beach, was an American-born bookseller and publisher who lived most of her life in Paris and founded the first Shakespeare and Company in 1919.

Located in Paris at 12 rue de l’Odéon, the shop was half bookstore and half lending library. It attracted the great expat writers of the time—Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Eliot, Pound—including some of the century’s most compelling female voices: Djuna Barnes, Gertrude Stein, Janet Flanner, Kay Boyle, and Mina Loy.

The bookstore was also frequented by celebrated French authors, such as André Gide, Paul Valéry, and Jules Romains. Beach’s shop served as the writers’ home away from home, postal address, and—when they were desperate—a loan service. Beach also helped usher in modern literature: she published her friend James Joyce’s Ulysses in 1922 when no one else dared.

In A Moveable Feast, Hemingway wrote of Beach: “Sylvia had a lively, sharply sculptured face, brown eyes that were as alive as a small animal's and as gay as a young girl's . . . She was kind, cheerful and interested, and loved to make jokes and gossip. No one that I ever knew was nicer to me.” And French author André Chamson said that Beach “did more to link England, the United States, Ireland, and France than four great ambassadors combined.”

Beach’s bookstore was open until 1941, when the Germans occupied Paris. One day that December, a Nazi officer entered her store and demanded Beach’s last copy of Finnegans Wake. Beach declined to sell him the book. The officer said he would return in the afternoon to confiscate all of Beach’s goods and to close her bookstore. After he left, Beach immediately moved all the shop’s books and belongings to an upstairs apartment. In the end, she would spend six months in an internment camp in Vittel, and her bookshop would never reopen.

In 1959, Beach published her memoir, Shakespeare and Company, which begins with her childhood in America and ends with the liberation of Paris after the Second World War. Beach passed away in 1962 in Paris.

We're thrilled to share that »Into the Forest« has been selected as part of Canada's Top Ten Film Festival, which runs in Toronto from January 8 to 17 next year. Select screenings will also take place in Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Halifax and Ottawa. Established in 2001 by the Toronto International Film Festival, this celebration of excellence is designed to highlight the best feature-length films, short films and student short films the country has produced in the past year, and raise general awareness of Canadian achievements in film. Festival selections are chosen by two panels — one for features, one for shorts — of Canadian filmmakers and film industry professionals. To be eligible, films must be directed by a Canadian citizen or resident and have been released commercially or played a major film festival in Canada.

Canada’s Top Ten Film Festival

New this year, the 14th edition of the festival is offering a geographic twist with a simultaneous screening of Patricia Rozema's apocalyptic drama at Toronto's Bell Lightbox, Vancouver's The Cinematheque and Montreal's Phi Centre on Saturday, January 9 at 9:00pm ET, which includes a simulcast introduction and an interactive live stream Q&A session with the director. Ellen Page was originally scheduled to attend this event as well, according to thecinematheque.ca, but was unfortunately forced to cancel.

Established in 2001, the festival celebrates and promotes contemporary Canadian cinema and raises awareness of Canadian achievements in film. Running January 8 to 17, 2016 at TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto, the 10-day event presents public screenings of the selected films accompanied by introductions and Q&A sessions with filmmakers, as well as special events, industry panels and free engagements. On January 16, Golden Globe–, Emmy- and Screen Actors Guild Award–winning Canadian actor Kiefer Sutherland will take the stage for an intimate discussion about his fascinating career. The 1985 landmark film My American Cousin rounds out the lineup as the festival’s Canadian Open Vault selection.

New this year, the festival will present a special screening simultaneously in three different cities, which includes a simulcast introduction and interactive Q&A offering audiences in Vancouver’s The Cinematheque and Montreal’s PHI Centre the chance to ask questions of the talent in Toronto.

These announcements were made at an industry event in Toronto tonight, hosted by Entertainment City’s Teri Hart.

“From exceptional debut features to veteran filmmakers at the top of their craft, Canadian talent from coast to coast cracked this year’s list,” said Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director, Toronto International Film Festival. “What better way to escape winter’s icy grip than with a toasty lineup of special guests and homegrown films presented in eight cities across the country.”

“One of our most geographically representative programmes to date, the strength of this year’s lineup is a testament to the diversity and curiosity of our nation’s filmmakers — from Newfoundland to British Columbia,” said Steve Gravestock, Senior Programmer, TIFF. “The collaborations from across the country demonstrate the versatility of our filmmaking community, delivering deeply engaging cinema in their exploration of Canadian values.”

Ellen Page attends a screening of the documentary film »Janis: Little Girl Blue« in Hollywood

ArcLight Cinemas hosted a screening of the Toronto International Film Festival premiered »Janis: Little Girl Blue« in Hollywood last night. Ellen attended this event alongside director Amy Berg and actress Juliette Lewis, who is one the female performers acknowledging Janis Joplin's influence on camera in the documentary film, and moderated the Q&A session that followed.

Janis: Little Girl BlueJANIS: LITTLE GIRL BLUE
A film by Amy Berg

In Janis: Little Girl Blue, Oscar® nominated Amy J. Berg (West of Memphis) presents a moving, insightful portrait of the original “Rock Chick” Janis Joplin, a white girl with a ferocious, soulful voice who broke into the male dominated music scene but grappled with her inner demons and addictions. Produced by Oscar® winner Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Darkside) and voiced by Chan Marshall (musician Cat Power), the film features wonderful archival footage alongside Janis’s personal correspondence and contemporary interviews. Janis: Little Girl Blue opens in UK cinemas 5th February 2016.

Janis Joplin is one of the most revered and iconic singers of all time, she electrified and thrilled millions of listeners with her powerful, soulful voice and blazed new creative trails before her death in 1971 at age 27. With massive hits including “Me and Bobby McGee” and “Piece of My Heart,” and such classic albums as Cheap Thrills and Pearl, Joplin was one of the performers who embodied the musical and cultural revolution of the 1960s.

Yet her on-stage bravado and uninhibited sexual persona hid hurt and insecurity stemming from her childhood in conservative Texas. On relocating to San Francisco and discovering the blues, Janis found an outlet for her pain and loneliness and fell into a community that would embrace and celebrate her talent.

Janis: Little Girl Blue brings to life Janis the paradox, both insecure and brazen, with interviews from old band members, unseen audio and video footage (some shot by legendary filmmaker D.A. Pennebaker), and readings from Janis’s letters home to her parents voiced by musician/actor Chan Marshall, who performs as Cat Power. Janis: Little Girl Blue offers new understanding of a bright, complex woman whose surprising rise and sudden demise changed music forever.
