News and Notes: October 2015

Too early to think about Oscar? Not for European countries who must decide which films to enter. Belgium has chosen The Brand New Testament starring Catherine Deneuve, and it looks wild and wacky!

Speaking of Oscar submissions, France has decided on Mustang, a coming of age tale set on the Turkish coast. The film will have a theatrical run at select American theaters next month.

Star Trek isn't dead, Jim. It lives on as a web series, not produced in Hollywood but an abandoned Dollar Store in New York state.  If you're not wearing a red shirt, beam on over here and explore this strange new world.

Attention Marceline. When your hand gets better you can cross stitch your own Cumberbatch!
