FOX SEARCHLIGHT PICTURES TO RELEASE SHORT FILMS ON SOCIAL MEDIA CHANNELS

Fox Searchlight Pictures’ Chairmen Nancy Utley and Stephen Gilula today announced the launch of “Searchlight Shorts” – a collection of short films now available on Fox Searchlight’s YouTube channel and “Searchlight Shorts” Facebook page.

Fox Searchlight plans to release a new short on its YouTube channel once a month and fans are encouraged to subscribe to the channel to access the films as soon as they’re available. Fans can also join the Searchlight Shorts Facebook group as a destination for new digital content with the opportunity discuss and explore the creative process.

“We’re excited to be expanding our presence in the short film world, and building lasting relationships with these talented filmmakers,” said Utley and Gilula. “By featuring these films on our social media channels we’re able to introduce audiences around the world to these unique stories by truly innovative artists who represent the future of our industry.”

The first film to be released on the Fox Searchlight social media channels is the recent Best Live Action Short Oscar® winner “Skin.” Other short films to be featured include “Feathers” and “Birdie,” which were acquired in late 2018; “Lavender,” which made its premiere at Sundance earlier this year; and the recently acquired “Sew Torn.”

In “Skin,” a young boy has an innocent encounter with an African American man at a supermarket and his parents react to the exchange with racial violence. The two families find themselves in a clash with shocking consequences. The film is directed by Guy Nattiv, co-written by Nattiv and Sharon Maymon, and stars Danielle Macdonald, Jonathan Tucker, Jackson Robert Scott, Lonnie Chavis and Ashley Thomas. The film is produced by Jaime Ray Newman, Andrew Carlberg, Tim Harms and Guy Nattiv, and executive produced by Matt Luber, Stephen Mao, Joanna Plafsky, Celine Rattray, Jessica Sherman, Peter Sobiloff and Trudie Styler.

“Feathers” centers around Elizier, an emotionally-dejected new enrollee at The Edward R. Mill School for Lost Boys, who must overcome memories of a tragic past and the present hazing by his peers in order to tackle larger issues dominating his young life. The film is written and directed by A.V. Rockwell and stars Kyngston Alvarez, Nicoye Banks and Shavez Frost. The film is produced by Marttise Hill, Julius Pryor and Marvin Scott, and executive produced by A.V. Rockwell and Rhea Scott.

“Birdie” is a drama following a woman walking alone in a train station, who finds herself part of a sinister game after returning the smallest of gestures to a young man. The film is written and directed by Shelly Lauman and stars Maeve Dermody and Sam Parsonson. The film is produced by Lizzie Cater, and executive produced by Bethany Bruce and Jessica Mitchell.

“Lavender” follows the story of a young gay man as he develops a complicated relationship with an older married couple. It is a tender, poignant look at an unconventional relationship as it blossoms and ultimately unravels. The film is written and directed by Matthew Puccini and stars Michael Urie, Michael Hsu Rosen and Ken Barnett. The film is produced by Casey Bader, Corey Deckler and Tyler Rabinowitz, and executive produced by Sam Abbas, Jason Michael Berman and Natalé Olsen.

“Sew Torn” is a tale of a seamstress, her thread, and a deal gone bad. The film is written and directed by Freddy Macdonald and stars Dagna Litzenberger-Vinet, Cor Boersma, and Thomas Douglas. The film is produced by Fred Macdonald, and executive produced by Peter Spears.

Disney Says Bye To Spider-Man In Any Upcoming Films For Now

Deadline is reporting Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige won’t produce any further Spider-Man films because of an inability by Disney and Sony Pictures to reach new terms that would have given the former a co-financing stake going forward. A dispute that has taken place over the past few months at the top of Disney and Sony has essentially nixed Feige, and the future involvement of Marvel from the Spider-Man universe, sources said.

This comes at a moment when the last two films Kevin Feige produced broke all-time records — Disney’s Avengers: Endgame became the highest grossing film of all time, and Spider-Man: Far From Home this week surpassed the James Bond film Skyfall to become the all time highest grossing film for Sony Pictures.

Sources said there are two more Spider-Man films in the works that are meant to have director Jon Watts and Tom Holland front and center. Unless something dramatic happens, Feige won’t be the lead creative producer of those pictures.

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See BRITTANY RUNS A MARATHON In Sacramento #RunBrittanyRun

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See BRITTANY RUNS A MARATHON On August 22nd at 7:00 PM In Sacramento.

Hilarious, outgoing and always up for a good time, New Yorker Brittany Forgler is everybody’s best friend — except maybe her own. At 27, her hard-partying ways, chronic underemployment and toxic relationships are catching up with her, but when she stops by a new doctor’s office to try to score some Adderall, she gets slapped with a prescription she never wanted: Get healthy. Too broke for a gym and too proud to ask for help, Brit is at a loss, until her seemingly together neighbor Catherine pushes her to lace up her Converse sneakers and run one sweaty block. The next day, she runs two. And soon, after finishing her first mile, she sets an almost unthinkable goal: running in the New York City Marathon.
