To successfully finish in European places, Tottenham has no choice but to win games. And that, the Spurs understood well by quietly settling a very weak West Ham team at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (2-0). After four consecutive games without a Premier League victory, Tottenham had to finish the game with three points in the bag.
(Giornate Degli Autori), the independent sidebar that is under the new leadership of artistic director Gaia Furrer this year, has announced its line-up of titles, including a feature directed by artist Bruce LaBruce and new shorts from Atlantics filmmaker Mati Diop and Mug director Malgorzata Skumowksa.
From more a thousand submissions, the programming team have whittled it down to just 28 titles. The event’s competition is comprised of 10 features and will open with the premiere of Kamir Aïnouz’s Honey Cigar. Also screening is Saint-Narcisse, the first feature film from Canadian artist Bruce LaBruce, which plays out of competition.
Tourism minister to visit sites province wants New Brunswickers to visit
With Friday's launch of the Atlantic bubble and tourism season officially underway, New Brunswick Tourism Minister Bruce Fitch is making his own travel plans. He intends to visit as many of the province's attractions as possible that the government hopes will entice New Brunswickers to "staycation" this summer, he said. "Just to encourage people to get out and explore their province." Fitch took a trip to Mount Carleton on Thursday. He said provincial parks and other "venues" are on his list. An itinerary was not immediately available from the Department of Tourism. Nor was an estimated cost.
Miu Miu Women’s Tales, a strand focused on “female creativity”, will feature two new short films from Mati Diop (In My Room) and Malgorzata Skumowksa (Nightwalk).
“In an objectively challenging year that will go down as unique in the annals of the Venice Film Festival,” said Andrea Purgatori, Venice Days president. “Giornate has set off on a path of renewal and growth that will project us into the future. In light of this, we would like to relaunch our founding principles, which were to go beyond the idea of a showcase of works by our filmmakers and create the year-long program of experimentation and debate that filmmakers expect of us, as they grapple with the changes underway that are transforming us all.”
