The Nantucket Film Festival (NFF) was founded in 1996 to spotlight the screenwriters and screenwriting in today's cinema. From its conception, NFF has been dedicated to the notion that the screenwriter's contribution is at the core of filmmaking.
For four days in June, screenwriting is celebrated with screenings of over 20 feature-length and short films and videos. The craft of screenwriting is explored through panel discussions, a screenplay competition and the Screenwriter's Tribute, which honors the career of a notable and distinguished screenwriter. The Morning Coffee With... series and the wildly popular Late Night Storytelling round out the line up.
Thankfully, many streaming services now have the option to download content for offline viewing. That means you can finish that film or TV season finale even as you enter the tunnel, drive across the plains, or take to the skies.

In their documentary feature debut, Ben Klein and Violet Columbus team up with the lovable loudmouth Christine Choy, an Academy Award-nominated filmmaker (WHO KILLED VINCENT CHIN), professor, and activist whose iconoclastic opinions have inspired a generation of artists. Seeking closure on a project Choy had left unfinished thirty years ago, the trio revisit old footage and reunite with three exiled, pro-democracy dissidents from the Tiananmen Square massacre, whom Choy had interviewed decades earlier. Winner of the top documentary prize at the Sundance Film Festival, THE EXILES is a profound reflection on identity and belonging, and the fragile nature of record and remembrance.
Unforgettable is a 2017 American drama thriller film directed by Denise Di Novi (in her directorial debut) and written by Christina Hodson. The film stars Rosario Dawson, Katherine Heigl, Geoff Stults, Isabella Rice, and Cheryl Ladd, and follows a divorcée who begins to torment her ex-husband's new fiancée.
On January 9, 2014, it was announced that Warner Bros. had hired Amma Asante to direct the female-centric thriller Unforgettable. Denise Di Novi was set to produce the film along with Alison Greenspan, while Christina Hodson was writing the script. On December 2, 2014, Kate Hudson and Kerry Washington were cast as the leads in the film, about a man who is threatened by his ex-wife. On June 22, 2015, after director Asante and actresses Hudson and Washington had left the project, it was revealed that producer Di Novi would make her directorial debut with the film. It was also revealed that David Leslie Johnson had co-written the script along with Hodson.
Ravi D. Mehta and Emanuel Michael were also announced as producers of the film, along with other members of the creative team, including cinematographer Caleb Deschanel, production designer Nelson Coates, editor Frédéric Thoraval, and costume designer Marian Toy.
Unforgettable grossed $11.4 million in the United States and Canada and $6.4 million in other territories for a worldwide gross of $17.8 million. There were different estimates of the budget; the Los Angeles Times reported the film had a production budget of $12 million, while the California Film Commission listed the film as spending $26.9 million on location, for a net budget of $21.5 million after tax rebates.
On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 28% based on 119 reviews, with an average rating of 4.00/10. The site's critical consensus reads, \"Unforgettable's talented cast makes this domestic thriller consistently watchable, even if its failure to fully embrace its premise's campy possibilities prevents it from living up to its title.\" On Metacritic, the film has a score of 45 out of 100, based on 27 critics, indicating \"mixed or average reviews\". Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of \"C\" on an A+ to F scale.
Ed Potton of The Times gave it 1/5 stars, writing: \"If this were a spoof, it would be a work of genius. Sadly, it's played straight, a glossy melodrama-cum-thriller of staggering cheesiness and unintentional hilarity.\" Tim Robey of The Daily Telegraph said that the film was \"the sort of psychothriller that comes back in ever tattier incarnations, like a wind-tossed scarecrow whose limbs keep falling off\", and also gave it 1/5 stars. Neil Genzlinger of The New York Times wrote: \"It's woman in jeopardy meets woman on the verge, a reductive brand of thriller from another decade, freshened here only with the addition of a plot element involving Facebook.\"
Psych: The Movie is a 2017 American made-for-television comedy film based on the USA Network dramedy series Psych. The film follows the Psych characters three years later in San Francisco, since the series finale in 2014. The movie aired on December 7, 2017, on the USA Network. James Roday, Dulé Hill, Timothy Omundson, Maggie Lawson, Kirsten Nelson, and Corbin Bernsen all reprised their roles from the series, with frequently recurring actors Kurt Fuller and Jimmi Simpson also appearing. The film was directed by series creator Steve Franks, who co-wrote the script with Roday. Franks stated his hope to make five more sequels in what became Psych's film series.
At a Comic Con gathering, Steve Franks stated that he hoped to make five additional TV movies, and was looking to the Fast and Furious franchise for inspiration. Psych: The Movie 2 was greenlit on February 14, 2019, with all the main cast confirmed to return. The film was originally set to premiere later in 2019. On September 17, 2019, it was announced that the sequel had been renamed Psych 2: Lassie Come Home and would instead be airing on NBCUniversal's new streaming service, Peacock. The movie premiered on July 15, 2020, the day the service officially launched.
This 1964 documentary returns to the battlefields where over 100,000 Canadian soldiers lost their lives in the First and Second World Wars. The film also visits cemeteries where servicemen are buried. Filmed from Hong Kong to Sicily, this documentary is designed to show Canadians places they have reason to know but may not be able to visit. Produced for the Canadian Department of Veteran Affairs by the renowned documentary filmmaker Donald Brittain.
When the Department of Veterans Affairs approached the NFB to make a film about the Canadian war dead of the First and Second World Wars, nobody was quite sure how to proceed. Filmmaker Donald Brittain, who had just finished working on the Canada at War series, was assigned to the project. Convinced that just showing cemeteries would be counterproductive, Brittain filmed the sites of famous battles as they appeared in the 1960s, with people having moved on and enjoying their lives. Yet the sacrifices made by Canadians on the battlefields are not forgotten by the people of these countries. Shot on 35 mm, the film would premiere in Ottawa in October 1963 with Governor General Georges Vanier present and play theatrically for the next two years. It would also be broadcast on Remembrance Day 1965 on the full CBC network.
By the time this film was made, Donald had been at the Film Board for several years. He'd started out as a production manager and then made several films that were purely utilitarian. He also did a few little dramas about racism that displayed social conscience, but they weren't very good. In fact, he thought he was on the verge of being fired.
Donald Brittain is under-represented in the pantheon of Canadian cultural history. His astonishing understanding of presentation within this film and all of his other efforts, especially of the sublime expression of what Canadians fought for and who Canadians are and what we believe in is remarkably unparalleled. To see the post-war joy on the faces of the French on their beaches and the solemn understanding of the Dutch children recognising their freedom is fantastic and without affectation or calculation. We live in a very special country populated by brave, strong, and reasonable people, and should we never forget that fact and that history.
Absolutely important to show Canadian kids in their teens in history classes. I visited Vimy in 1957 when I was fifteen and it influenced my life greatly. We also visited Dachau at that time. I was horrified at what I saw. Both visits gave me a great sense of value of my country and what a free society really means. Looking at the graves of so many young men makes you hate war and see the unlessness of it.This is such a sensitive film to reach youth who question our values and want to know where what we believe comes from.
This is without a doubt one on the finest films ever produced honoring the fallen in the two great wars. Beautifully conceived and filmed it will stand for generations as the finest tribute to those Canadians, indeed all who paid the ultimate price, that others may live in freedom. I am profoundly grateful to NFB for airing this masterpiece again.Bro. John 153554b96e
