OCTOBER 2017

115- MIPCOM, he world's entertainment content market, takes place in Cannes, France, from 16-19 October
Paris -- MIPCOM 2017 is set to showcase a record number of exclusive International Screenings, including compelling original crime series, a Russian period drama, a blue-chip wildlife series, and some caustic comedy shows.

The 2017 MIPCOM International Screenings:
"The Lawyer," a drama set between Copenhagen and Malmö about a young defence attorney whose world unravels when he learns the truth about his parents' death, putting his professional career on a collision course with personal revenge. Presented by Studiocanal and Viaplay with key cast, Oscar-nominated producer Nicklas Wikström Nicastro, producer Joakim Hansson, and creator Jens Lapidus all due in Cannes.
•••• "The Road to Calvary," NTV Broadcasting Company's adaptation of Aleksey Tolstoy's novel, a tale of two sisters through the tragic times of 1914 -1919 encompassing World War I, the Russian Revolution, and civil war. One of two series presented as part of the Russian Content Revolution programme at MIPCOM.
•••• The other is mystery thriller "Gogol", presented by TV3 Channel, one of the most expensive projects on Russian TV, which adopted an innovative release pattern. The first part was released in cinemas in August, the next two feature-length episodes following in subsequent weeks before appearing on TV. The first film broke Russian box-office records. The series features Nikolai Gogol, the great Russian dramatist, who finds himself in the ghastly world of fairy tales from his native Ukraine.
•••• "La Zona", a first original production by Spanish premium pay-channel Movistar+ sold by Germany's Beta Film. It recounts the disastrous meltdown of a nuclear power plant in northern Spain, creating a contaminated no-go zone which forms the backdrop for a series of mysterious killings that seem as contagious as the radioactive fallout.
•••• "Blue Planet II", a follow-up to the series from BBC Worldwide, is a bold cinematic experience that takes viewers on a magical adventure across the planet's mighty oceans. Julian Hector, Head of BBC Studios Natural History Unit and Executive Producer, James Honeyborne will introduce this stunning series that reveals surprising new places and some extraordinary new animal behaviour.
•••• "Living the Dream" from ITV Studios Global Entertainment. Penned by BAFTA-nominated writer Mick Ford, a major new transatlantic comedy drama featuring an acclaimed cast including Philip Glenister ("Outcast," "Life on Mars"), who is scheduled to be in Cannes. Mal Pemberton (Glenister) decides to uproot his family from their lives in Yorkshire and move to sunny Florida to run a trailer park, but when they arrive, their dream life is not exactly what they imagined. 
•••• "Guest List" presented by SND - Groupe M6. When Agnes tells Alex on their wedding day that she is pregnant, it comes as quite a surprise, since he never revealed to her that he's sterile. As the night unfolds, Alex tries to get to the bottom of things, while guests reveal their own stories in this tender-yet-caustic series starring a great ensemble cast led by François-Xavier Demaison and Alix Poisson.
•••• "Tabula Rasa" from ZDF Enterprises, is a psychological thriller about Mie, a young woman with amnesia who is locked up in a secure psychiatric hospital. As the last person seen with a man who has vanished, she is both key witness and prime suspect in this mysterious disappearance. But Mie can't be released from the hospital until the man is found, which means she must reconstruct her lost memories and find her way back through the dark labyrinth of her recent past. Lead actress Veerle Baetens (Alabama Monroe) and writer-showrunner Malin-Sarah Gozin are due to be in Cannes to present the show.
•••• A haunting, sumptuous period thriller set in 17th-century Amsterdam, "The Miniaturist" tells the story of a house where beneath the lavish beauty lie forbidden passions and dangerous secrets. Produced for the BBC and Masterpiece in the US, the series is being sold by all3media international. The series, based on the best-selling novel is produced by The Forge ("National Treasure"), led by George Faber with Kate Sinclair producing. It features the cross-over movie talent of Romola Garai and Alex Hassel &endash; with Newcomer & Breakthrough award-winner Anya Taylor-Joy &endash; who will also be seen in "X Men" next year.
•••• Medical drama "Pulse", based on the true story of a transplant patient who alters the course of her life to become a doctor, is a gripping eight-part series featuring an internationally-renowned cast, presented by ABC Commercial and Screen Australia. Lead actresses Claire van der Boom and Pallavi Sharda ("Lion") will take part in a Q&A session following the screening, joined by the show's creators.
•••• An epic historical thriller set in 16th-century Seville, "The Plague" is a stunning new series from Movistar+, in which Mateo, a heretic who has been sentenced to death, must solve a series of murders against the backdrop of an epidemic to be absolved by the Holy Office and save his own life. Domingo Corral, Head of Original Programming, Movistar+, Telefónica, will introduce the screening.
•••• Global Screen is presenting two of its upcoming highlight programmes: brand-new, suspense-packed thriller series "Dementia" from Mexico, and a first exclusive preview of the latest season of "The Weissensee Saga" , the triumphant and gripping family saga with an international track record.
•••• "Morocco: Love In Times of War" from Beta Film, is an epic historical drama produced by Spanish powerhouse Bambu Producciones for Atresmedia. Set in the 1920s, it follows a group of inexperienced young ladies from the Spanish nobility sent to Morocco to provide much-needed medical support for the wounded in the Spanish-Moroccan war.

 This rich line-up of titles joins the previously-announced World Premiere TV Screenings of epic mystical historical series "Britannia" , presented by Sky Vision, written by Jez Butterworth and starring Kelly Reilly and David Morrissey; and MIPCOM Russian Content Revolution World Premiere TV Screening "Trotsky", a powerful new eight-part dramatisation of the life of the Russian revolutionary leader produced by Sreda for Russia's Channel One.
The MIPCOM 2017 Asian World Premiere features "Kurara: The Dazzling Life of Hokusai's Daughter", a brand-new drama about the life of the legendary Japanese print artist from NHK. In addition, Sony Pictures Entertainment is inviting MIPCOM delegates to an exclusive Pre-Opening World Premiere TV Screening of the highly-anticipated, new drama series, "Counterpart" , an espionage series about a mysterious world hidden beneath the surface of our everyday existence. In the presence of Academy Award Winner JK Simmons ("Whiplash," "La La Land"), Harry Lloyd, actor ("The Theory of Everything"), and creator and writer Justin Marks ("The Jungle Book"

"This session will provide critical insight on cybersecurity and how businesses can protect themselves from growing threats."
••••Paul Liberman, along with two coworkers from VistaPrint, founded DraftKings in 2012. The company started as a small operation out of Liberman's spare bedroom, and grew rapidly into the leading daily fantasy sports (DFS) platform it is today.
••••As chief consumer security evangelist at McAfee, Gary Davis partners with internal teams to drive strategic alignment of products with the needs of the security space. Davis also provides security education to businesses and consumers by distilling complex security topics into actionable advice.

115- Bayreuther Festspiele, Bayreuth, Germany July 25 - August 28

WagnerBayreuthhaus108w.jpg

The Bayreuth Festival: also a family history. The festival's management has been in the hands of a member of the Wagner family up to this day. A special feature that has increased the attractiveness of the four-week Wagner marathon worldwide. This family history, as in any other family, has not remained free of tension.
•••• The reworking of the political instrumentalisation, especially in the Nazi dictatorship, the "Neubayreuth" under Wieland and Wolfgang Wagner, the changes under Katharina Wagner &endash; they stand not only for continuity, but also for breaks in the reception which have one thing in common: profound respect for the unique work of Richard Wagner.
• History of Richard Wagner and Bayreuth
•••• Wagner originally planned that Munich would be the focal-point of his music. After being banished from immediate contact with Ludwig II at the end of 1865, however, he switched his attention from Munich to Nuremberg, which he saw as especially appropriate for the performance of The Mastersingers and his other operas.
•••• Nuremberg, however, was abandoned when Wagner heard from Hans Richter that there was an excellent operahouse in Bayreuth. Margrave Frederick (1735-63), who was married to the sister of Frederick the Great, Friederike Wilhelmine Sophie, had kept court in Bayreuth. The young Margravine was active in the arts, and like her famous brother was an enthusiastic composer (for example, the operas Amaltea and L'Elliogabalo), and the Margrave had an opera-house built in Bayreuth, completed in 1747. In its time it was one of the largest theatres in the world. The acoustics were exceptionally good.
•••• • The question of performance rights made Wagner favour Bayreuth. In 1864, when short of money, Wagner had sold the performance rights of his forthcoming operas to Ludwig II. As an enthusiastic Wagnerian, Ludwig had wished to hear Wagner's music as often as possible in Munich. On Ludwig's initiative, The Rhinegold was premiered in Munich on 22nd September 1869, although Wagner was against the idea.

115- On the Red Carpet at the Venice Film Festival 2017
VENICE, Italy -- Known as an awards-season launching pad, a bevy of Hollywood talent -- including Oscar winners George Clooney, Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Jennifer Lawrence and Octavia Spencer -- headed to the Venice Film Festival, which opened its 74th edition August 30.
Venice kicked off with Alexander Payne's Downsizing as the opening film in competition. Stars Jane Fonda and Robert Redford are to receive Lifetime Achievement Golden Lions at a September 1 screening.
Some of the Films presented on the Lido:
• "Downsizing"
A social satire directed by Alexander Payne and starring Mat Damon, Kristen Wiig and Hong Chau, in which Damon plays a man who agrees to have himself shrunk down in order to live luxuriously in a government resort, "shows a likable character whose life is different from our own, but whom we can find common cause with" and called it "an optimistic film."
"Suburbicon"
Damon will be doing double duty in Venice. In "Downsizing," he plays a man who agrees to have himself shrunk down in order to live luxuriously in a government resort, while in Clooney-directed "Suburbicon," he stars as the father of a well-to-do suburban family that finds itself caught in a spiral of violence. Julianne Moore, who last came to the festival in 2009 for Tom Ford's "A Single Man," also stars in Clooney's dark take on 1950s suburbia.
"Mother"
A third title Paramount is in competition in Venice: Darren Aronofsky's horror thriller "Mother!", for which Lawrence is Lido-bound along with Javier Bardem and Michelle Pfeiffer. All three Paramount movies will continue on from Venice to Toronto.
"The Shape of Water"
Fox Searchlight will launch two Golden Lion hopefuls: Guillermo Del Toro's Cold War-era fantasy "The Shape of Water," for which Octavia Spencer is jetting in, and dark thriller "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri," directed by Martin McDonagh ("In Bruges"), and starring Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, and Sam Rockwell.
•••• Although the star wattage is high, what characterizes the fest's upcoming competition lineup is not the presence of potential Oscar bait but rather "a whole other range of different types of movies that are being made today around the world, which are not promoted and sustained, and that need Venice for this," says Venice Film Festival artistic director, Alberto Barbera.
• Festival Jury:
Annette Bening serves as President of the main Venezia 74 competition jury -- and as the first female to hold the post since 2006. The panel awards the major prizes including the Golden and Silver Lions and the acting Volpi Cups, among others.
•••• Jurists include Hungarian director and screenwriter Ildikó Enyedi, Michel Franco, who has won awards at Cannes for three of his films, British actress Rebecca Hall (Christine), French actress Anna Mouglalis (Leopardi ), Italian filmmaker Jasmine Trinca, who won the award for Best Actress; Edgar Wright, the British director and screenwriter of the iconic Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy, whose film Baby Driver is currently showing in American theatres, and director, producer and screenwriter Yonfan, a well-travelled director who grew up in Taiwan and lives and works in Hong Kong.
•••• The biggest novelty at Venice this year is a new competitive section dedicated to works made for virtual-reality-viewing, the first-ever competition for VR works at a major film festival. It will be held in refurbished buildings on a tiny island close to the Lido that was a leper colony in the 15th century and has never before been open to the public.

SIGGRAPH 2017 Honors Emerging Technology and Innovation in Computer Graphics
SIGGRAPH 2017, the world's leading annual interdisciplinary educational experience showcasing the latest in computer graphics and interactive techniques, has concluded in Los Angeles with over 16,500 attendees from around the world. SIGGRAPH 2017 marked the 44th International Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques, and was held 30 July&endash;3 August 2017 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
••••Taking over downtown L.A., attendees came to see and interact with the latest innovations in computer graphics, including new applications in virtual and augmented reality and robotics. At the heart of SIGGRAPH 2017 were opportunities to gain hands-on experiences with new technologies; to hear experts discuss the "how-to" behind their cutting-edge film, television, game, or multi-media productions; and, to experience the merging of traditional processes with experimental, never-before-seen technologies.
•••• During the course of the conference, over 600 papers, courses, lectures, panels, installations, artworks, and experiences were shared, culled from nearly 2,000 submissions from around the world. In addition, over 1,800 speakers and contributors participated.
••••On the conclusion of this year's event, SIGGRAPH 2017 Conference Chair Jerome Solomon said, "We had a fantastic, very well-attended show this year! SIGGRAPH 2017 presented more activities, technologies, experiences, and venues than we've ever seen before. Once again, SIGGRAPH has proven itself as a preeminent conference for computer graphics and interactive techniques, and I'm confident that our 2018 show next year in Vancouver will no doubt present even more cutting-edge experiences, as SIGGRAPH contributors continue to fulfill the future potential of interactive technology and innovation from every corner of the globe."
••••••Among this year's highlights were the Keynote session, which featured a conversation with Disney Legend and animator Floyd Norman, Walt Disney Animation Studios' first African-American animator. Attendees also enjoyed critically acclaimed VR short films in the first-ever SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival VR Theater; participated in a VR Film Jam, which transformed two animated short films into virtual reality experiences; listened to and met with the creators of Hollywood's biggest blockbusters as part of the Production Sessions program; and, heard from the most cutting-edge technical researchers in the business.
••• Award Winners
"The Human Race," a real-time demonstration presented by The Mill during Real-Time Live! on Tuesday night, was awarded the SIGGRAPH 2017 "Best Real-Time Graphics and Interactivity" honor. "The Human Race" is a collaboration with Epic Games and is made possible through the combination of Unreal Engine 4, The Mill Cyclops, and The Mill Blackbird. The demonstration showcased its ability to blur the line between production and post, revolutionizing the conventions of digital filmmaking.
••••The SIGGRAPH 2017 Emerging Technologies program awarded its "Best in Show" prize to "MetaLimbs: Arms Interaction Metamorphism," from Japan. MetaLimbs proposes a novel approach to body-schema alternation and artificial-limb interaction by adding two robotic arms to the user's body and mapping the global motion of the user's legs and feet relative to the torso.
••••Originally announced in June, SIGGRAPH 2017 Computer Animation Festival award winners were presented with their statues during Monday night's Electronic Theater. These awards included: Best in Show ("Song of a Toad," Germany), Jury's Choice ("John Lewis Buster the Boxer," United Kingdom), and Best Student Film ("Garden Party," France).
••••Finally, the Art Papers program awarded its very first "Best Art Paper" honor to Robert Twomey of Youngstown State University and Michael McCrea of the University of Washington for their paper entitled, "Transforming the Commonplace Through Machine Perception: Light-Field Synthesis and Audio-Feature Extraction in the Rover Project." The paper describes the mechatronic, machine perception, audio/visual synthesis, and compositional techniques developed for the Rover, an imaging device and real-time audio/visual installation.
••••SIGGRAPH 2017 attendees hailed from the United States and 87 other countries worldwide, including Canada, China, France, Germany, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.

The 70th annual Cannes Film Festival is scheduled to be held from 17 to 28 May 2017. Spanish film director and screenwriter Pedro Almodóvar has been selected as the President of the Jury for the festival with Italian actress Monica Bellucci hosting the opening and closing ceremonies.
••• Roman Polansky joins Cannes film festival lineup. The director's latest thriller will premiere at the festival. The announcement arrives as the film-maker's lawyer continues to battle for the Oscar winner's return to the US after he fled in 1977. Last month, Polanski was denied the promise of "special treatment" if he came back to the US. Polansky has spent the last 40 years in Europe.
•••• The Rosemary's Baby director's new thriller Based on a True Story will play out of competition. It stars Eva Green as a mysterious woman who tries to insert herself into the life of a famous author, played by Polanski's off-screen wife Emmanuelle Seigner.
••• Polanski's last film Venus in Fur also received its premiere at the Cannes film festival and won him the Cesar for best director. Last year's festival saw controversy for director.

115- The latest technology at the OFC By Gary Sunkin
••• A dynamic global gathering taking place at the Los Angeles Convention Center on March 19 - 23.
•••• The Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition (OFC) is the largest global conference and exhibition for optical communications and networking professionals. For over 40 years, OFC has drawn attendees from all corners of the globe to meet and greet, teach and learn, make connections and move business forward.
•••• OFC attracts the biggest names in the field, offers key networking and partnering opportunities, and provides insights and inspiration on the major trends and technology advances affecting the industry. From technical presentations to the latest market trends and predictions.
•••• Some of the panelists at the "Hyperscale data centers: Inside and out" were Rafik Ward, SVP of Glodal Marketing. Ward is responsidle for Product Management, Strategic Management, Strategic Marketing, and Corporate Communication Functions since joining the company in 2003; Dr. Ryohei Urata, Sr. Staff Tech Lead,Google; Dr, Bardia Pezeshki President & CEO Kaiam; Glenn Wellbrock, Director Optical Transport Network, Architecture design and planning, Verizon.
•••• During the "Hyperscale Data Centers: Inside and Out" panel discussion, Ryohei Urata from Google was asked whether OSFP (octal small form factor pluggable) or QSFP-DD (quad small form factor pluggable double density) was going to lead in the intra-data center market. Ryohei outlined his vision of putting long-haul coherent optics in a client-side pluggable for speeds beyond 400G. This would allow Google to use the same module for inter- and intra-data center distances while also giving it the ability to use coherent optics within the data center.
•••• Google would expect the switch manufacturers to upgrade to the new form factor, which would eliminate the need for backward-compatibility with QSFP28.
•••• Google strongly favors the OSFP form factor. However, Ovum believes that placing coherent optics and a DSP within an OSFP module would be a huge challenge and require substantial R&D investments. Managing the power and heat within the module alone would be extremely difficult.
•••• The industry has been trying for years, unsuccessfully, to place long-haul optics into a client-size pluggable. To help the industry move forward, Google might need to assist with NRE (non-recurring engineering) funding.
•••• The last day of the 2017 OFC Conference and Exhibition offered another full day of technical sessions, the second Poster Session and the Postdeadline Papers Session. In the Exhibition, the Expo Theaters featured the concluding two panels for Market Watch, one product showcase and five show floor programs.

115- 23rd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards® "By the Numbers"
LOS ANGELES (Jan. 26, 2017) -- The style and décor of the 23rd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards® looks optimistically into the future using cherished elements of the theater's historic vernacular. Miles of polished chain strands hang behind the stage with linear perfection, punctuated by dozens of fully controllable small LED lights, yet they're carefully designed in waves that echo the shape of cinema's Golden Age velvet curtains. A giant screen is the center of attention, as expected, but ultra-high-resolution digital technology takes the place of projectors and xenon arc lamps. Adding to the drama, the stage is illuminated in an ever-changing gallery of captured and reflected lighting imagery. Throughout the venue, from the chandeliers to the table settings, the ornate gilt of years gone past is translated into a subtle modern interplay of silver and light.

115- 23rd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards® "By the Numbers"
LOS ANGELES (Jan. 26, 2017) -- The style and décor of the 23rd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards® looks optimistically into the future using cherished elements of the theater's historic vernacular. Miles of polished chain strands hang behind the stage with linear perfection, punctuated by dozens of fully controllable small LED lights, yet they're carefully designed in waves that echo the shape of cinema's Golden Age velvet curtains. A giant screen is the center of attention, as expected, but ultra-high-resolution digital technology takes the place of projectors and xenon arc lamps. Adding to the drama, the stage is illuminated in an ever-changing gallery of captured and reflected lighting imagery. Throughout the venue, from the chandeliers to the table settings, the ornate gilt of years gone past is translated into a subtle modern interplay of silver and light.
•••• This sophisticated design sets the tone for this year's SAG Awards®, an event that embodies culture, style and community for attendees and audiences alike. That welcoming atmosphere makes it easy to forget that everything here is on a larger-than-life scale.
•••• How large a scale? Here are just a few of the numbers and other fun facts that go into transforming the huge empty space that is the Shrine Exposition Center into the dazzling event that is the 23rd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.

The Arrivals

••••• Guests walk past international media and fans along 17,100 square feet of red carpet
••••• There are 12,500 lineal feet of hedges used for edging
••••• Three rows of six-foot high bleachers, totaling 180 lineal feet, accommodate 300 fans
•••• Attendees are shielded from the weather by 21,500 square feet of tenting that covers the red carpet

The Actor®

••••• Each solid bronze Actor® statuette is 16 inches tall and weighs a substantial 12 pounds
••••• It takes a team of 10 craftspeople at American Fine Arts Foundry three to four weeks to make The Actors® each year
••••• Since 1995, the 1st Annual SAG Awards, 952 Actor® statuettes have been awarded
••••• Each statuette is individually numbered, with The Actor No. 1 on display at SAG-AFTRA headquarters in Los Angeles
••••• Seven larger-than-life replicas of The Actor® statuette, each nearly ten feet tall and weighing 162 pounds, are strategically positioned as guardians of the red carpet, the Showroom, and the Post-Awards Gala
••••• Each giant Actor is made from steel, shaped using a silicone and fiberglass mold before being refined and painted

The Venue

••••• The iconic Los Angeles Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall was the largest theater in the United States when it was built in 1926
••••• The SAG Awards annually transforms the Shrine's Expo Hall into an intimate dinner showroom for the televised ceremony and the Auditorium stage into a unique setting for the Post-Awards Gala hosted by People and the Entertainment Industry Foundation.
••••• At 194 feet (59 meters) wide and 69 feet (21 meters) deep, the Shrine's is thought to be the largest proscenium arch stage in the country.
•••• The Shrine was designated a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument in 1975
•••• In 1933, David O. Selznick's groundbreaking King Kong used the Shrine as the "New York" theater where the giant gorilla gets exhibited, helping to keep the film's budget down to $672,000 (under $12 million in 2017 dollars)

The Showroom

••••• It takes at least four days to transform the Showroom for the SAG Awards, a feat made possible by months of pre-planning
••••• The Shrine Exposition Center's 34,000 square foot wooden floor is cloaked in 11,800 square feet of black carpet
••••• About 15,000 square feet of black drapery swathes the previously bare walls
••• • Over 150,000 linear feet of chain (roughly 46,000 meters) &endash; enough to stretch across the 30-Mile Studio Zone &endash; are used to create the curtains and chandeliers
••••• The stage floor is overlaid with 300 sheets, 4 foot by 4 foot each, of black glossy Formica 

 The People

••••• All SAG-AFTRA members in good standing are eligible to vote in all categories, which means 121,546 peers in the actors' union choose the honorees this year
•••• 247 actors have been nominated for the 23rd Screen Actors Guild Awards
••••• 525 performers (350 for Film, 175 for Television) are nominated in Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble categories
••••• It takes more than 700 staff and crew to make the SAG Awards a reality

The Audience

••••• About 300,000 pedestrians a day walk past the giant Spectacolor HD electric billboard in Times Square that will be showing the live webcast of the official People, EW & TNT's SAG Awards® Red Carpet Live pre-show
••••• The Spectacolor HD billboard display is 744 pixels x 992 pixels, and it requires video encoded at 10,000 &endash; 25,000 kbits/sec
••••• The programming also will be seen on ten billboards in New York subway's digital network.
••• • The People, EW & TNT's SAG Awards® Red Carpet Live pre-show will stream simultaneously on sagawards.tntdrama.com, sagawards.org, the People/Entertainment Weekly Network (People.com/PEN), EW.com, InStyle.com, Essence.com, and Time.com beginning at 5:30 p.m. (ET) / 2:30 p.m. (PT)

The Flowers, by CJ Matsumoto & Sons

CJ Matsumoto & Sons is creating floral arrangements representing this year as a year of change, inspired by nature in its ever-evolving textures. Each is a simple garden setting -- with a twist, created by tiny lights within the structure of the arrangements that play off the white floral, creating a varied spectrum of color.

••••• 12 craftspeople working countless hours

••••• 1,500 custom FIJI Water Straws visible and in use along the entire red carpet

DOVE® Chocolate

DOVE® Chocolate is providing generous quantities of its artisanal milk and dark chocolate DOVE® Promises to the Screen Actors Guild Awards. A lot of detail goes into being the No. 1 pure dark chocolate brand in the U.S., including factoids like:

••••• At least 4 cocoa beans are required for each individual DOVE® Promise
••••• The beans make a 5,000-mile journey from cocoa farmers in Cote d'Ivoire to be made into DOVE® chocolate
••••• Each bean undergoes a 15-step bean-to-bar process - select, roast, mill, refine, smooth, mix & more
••••• It takes 5 years for a cacao tree to bear fruit

Champagne Taittinger

As the Official Champagne of the SAG Awards, Champagne Taittinger is pouring:

••••• 160 magnums of Champagne Taittinger Brut La Française at the official Post-Awards Gala hosted by People and the Entertainment Industry Foundation

••• • Champagne Taittinger is also providing Two Methuselah (6 liters, also known as a Balthazar) bottles of Champagne Taittinger Brut La Française to be signed by Actor® recipients and donated to the auction benefiting the SAG-AFTRA Foundation

••••• 5,880 glasses of luxury Sterling Vineyards wines are expected to be served throughout the evening

CineMerit to Ellen Burstyn
•••• Detroit-born actress Ellen Burstyn will receive the 2016 CineMerit Award for her contribution to the cinematic arts. Burstyn has won the Oscar, the Golden Globe, two Emmys and a BAFTA, in addition to over 20 major international prizes. She is the co-director of the famed Actors Studio in New York, encouraging and training young actors in the craft. She was inducted into the American Theatre Hall of Fame in 2013.
•••• Ellen Burstyn was born Edna Rae Gillooly in Detroit, Michigan, in 1932. She began her career as a model, appearing on TV for the first time in 1955 as a dancer on the Jackie Gleason Show before taking on her first Broadway role in 1957 in FAIR GAME. She had her first major role in a motion picture in Vincente Minnelli's GOODBYE CHARLIE (1964) alongside Tony Curtis and Debbie Reynolds. She began studying at The Actors' Studio with Lee Strasberg in 1963.
••••Ellen Burstyn's breakthrough came in 1971 with Peter Bogdanovich's THE LAST PICTURE SHOW. The next year, she acted the part of Regan's mother in William Friedkin's horror classic THE EXORCIST, which became one of the first major modern blockbusters, earning over $100 million at the box office and making her world famous. She earned Academy Award nominations as Best Actress for both films.
••••She produced her next film ALICE DOESN'T LIVE HERE ANYMORE (1974) herself, tapping then-unknown director Martin Scorsese to helm. Her turn as a single mother struggling to get by with her 12-year-old son finally won Ellen Burstyn her Best Actress Oscar. She received the Tony Award the same year for Broadway hit SAME TIME, NEXT YEAR, going on to star in the film version directed by Robert Mulligan 1979 with Alan Alda, which earned her the Golden Globe and her next Academy Award nomination, followed by another nom for RESURRECTION in 1981.

115- 30,000 attend the legendary Cannes Film Festival
By Gordon Talbott 00
••••The festival opened on May 11 with a screening of Woody Allen's new film, "Café Society," and runs through May 22 in the southern French resort city. In competition for the Palme d'Or this year are films by Pedro Almodóvar, Olivier Assayas, the Dardenne brothers, Jim Jarmusch, Cristian Mungiu, Jeff Nichols and Sean Penn.
•••• Jodie Foster's "Money Monster" and Steven Spielberg's "The BFG" have been be shown out of competition.
•••• After the recent terrorist attacks in France, organizers say they have ramped up security to the highest level in the festival's history.
••••This year's dinner was more subdued than those in the past and took place inside the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès, the official headquarters, where a fleet of police and guards mingled with politicians, stars, movie icons and fame seeking starlets.
••••Cinema gives Cannes its reason for being, but it is celebrity that keeps it going. Now in its 69th year, the festival has survived assorted bumps, including television, the transition to digital and World War II, which led to the cancellation of the inaugural edition, in 1939. When it got underway in 1946, its slate included Jean Cocteau's "Beauty and the Beast." A quotation from Cocteau on the festival website asserts that Cannes is "an apolitical no man's land, a microcosm of what the world would be like if people could make direct contact with one another and speak the same language." The apolitical part has never really existed, as the event's history of protests and policing show.
••••Certainly, it is still nonexistent, given that France remains under a state of emergency, following the deadly November attacks in and around Paris. Festivalgoers arrived amid competing dramatic headlines &emdash; "Bomb sweeps and bag checks as terror threat looms over Cannes," The Guardian announced on Tuesday &emdash; that suggested that attendees could expect to endure the paramilitary-like rigors of an Academy Awards ceremony having to pass through several metal detectors.
••• Yet entrance to the Palais remains much the same as before and largely involves personnel peering in bags, confiscating water bottles (and apples and sandwiches) and scanning attendees with electronic security wands.
••••And, so, it's on with the show, with all its glamour, gowns, parties, high-ticket hookers, trolling Lamborghinis, incessant Euro disco and the push and pull between the dream world onscreen and the one outside the Palais. Cannes is nothing if not in touch with its history, including its commitment to protocol, and it is apparently not going to let the threat of terror get in the way of some 30,000 souls who are here to screen, to see and be seen. The players, including the juries, have convened; the first reviews have already been written, read and forgotten.

Meryl Streep Wraps Berlin Film Festival
"Fire at Sea" wins Golden Bear and Lav Diaz's "Hele sa Hiwagan Hapis" wins the Silver Bear.
BERLIN
-- Meryl Streep Wraps up Berlin Film Festival. The 66-year-old Oscar-winning actress served on the festival's jury ... During the festival, she also attended the premiere of the George Clooney's "Hail, Caesar!"
•••• Meryl Streep and her Berlin jury have picked the winners of the 66th annual film fest's Gold and Silver Bears. The most politically-charged Berlin Film Festival of recent years came to a head with the awards ceremony for the winners of the Gold and Silver Bears. Meryl Streep said of the Golden Bear-winning film "Fire at Sea" from Gianfranco Rosi:
•••• Three-time Oscar-winner Streep said her 7-member jury was "swept away" by Fire at Sea, which she called "urgent, imaginative and necessary filmmaking." It is a documentary on the refugee crisis, looking at the island of Lampadusa in Italy where thousands of refugees have flooded into Europe. "This is a film that commands our attention and demands action."
•••• Rosi told reporters after the awards ceremony late Saturday, February 20, that he would aim to show the film to the people of Lampedusa in an open-air screening in the spring.
•••• The festival had placed a special spotlight on the refugee issue, after Germany let in more than 1.1 million asylum seekers last year.
•••• Donations boxes to support charities helping torture survivors were placed at cinema venues, and festival internships and free tickets were reserved for migrants.
•••• George Clooney, whose Hail, Caesar! opened the event, even met with German Chancellor Angela Merkel with his wife Amal "to talk about how best we can help."

115- Lights! Camera! -Action! at the Berlin Film Festival, Feb. 11 - 21
BERLIN -- The 11-day Berlinale, one of the top three cinema showcases in Europe along with Cannes and Venice, got off to a brilliant start with the opening film Hail, Caesar! - with directors Joel & Ethan Coen as well as actors George Clooney, Tilda Swinton, Josh Brolin, Channing Tatum and Alden Ehrenreich in attendance &endash; the spectacular list of stars continues: Pernilla August, Susanne Bier, Daniel Brühl, Daniel Burman, Isabel Coixet, Doris Dörrie, Kirsten Dunst, Colin Firth, Greta Gerwig, Brendan Gleeson, Isabelle Huppert, Julia Jentsch, Denis Lavant, Jude Law, Spike Lee, Laura Linney, Julianne Moore, Cynthia Nixon, Guy Pearce, Michael Peña, Tim Robbins, Gianfranco Rosi, James Schamus, Michael Shannon, Alexander Skarsgård, André Téchiné, Emma Thompson, Wayne Wang, and many more, have all put in appearances during the first half of this year's Berlinale.
•••• There were standing ovations for Jury President Meryl Streep who - with her co-jurors Lars Eidinger, Nick James, Brigitte Lacombe, Clive Owen, Alba Rohrwacher and Ma?gorzata Szumowska - will award the Berlinale's main prizes on February 20. ••••
••••
And so far the turnout of visitors at the 66th Berlin International Film Festival has been tremendous. At half time, almost 250,000 tickets have been sold.••••
•••• Closing & Award Ceremony of the 66th Berlin International Film Festival will take place February 20.
• Plight of refugees
•••• This year's Berlin Film Festival shines a spotlight on the plight of refugees in a string of documentaries and movies as Europe s endures the largest refugee influx since World War II, with 1.1 million asylum seekers arriving in Germany last year, the theme of migration will be omnipresent at the festival and the politically attuned showcase hopes to attract refugees as well as film fans this year.
•••• Jay Weissberg, a Europe-based critic for trade publication Variety, said it was no surprise that the Berlin festival would make refugees a theme at a time when Europe is wrestling with how to deal with the millions fleeing to its shores.
•••• The festival that began in 1951 when Germany -- and Europe -- was recovering from a war that had uprooted millions of people is making an extra effort to welcome the latest wave of refugees who have fled war in Syria, Iraq and elsewhere.
••••Refugees will be taken behind the scenes of the festival, some accompanied by NGO workers who are helping them to adjust to life in Germany, and there will be a refugee-staffed food truck serving up Mediterranean fare with the aid of a celebrity chef, the festival said in a statement.
•••• Kosslick, the festival's director, told Reuters in an interview that without losing sight of its primary goal of presenting the best of world cinema, this year's Berlinale is programmed in part to show why people become refugees.
•••• "If you lose your homeland you don't lose it because you want to leave your house, you want to leave your garden, your flowers, your family," Kosslick said. "You want to be happy, and you are leaving because you are not happy and this is the way you can see the whole Berlinale."
Germany has taken in more than a million refugees over the past year, the largest number of any European country.
•••• The Berlinale's European Film Market (EFM) is also heading for success in 2016. This international platform for trading in film rights and audio-visual content has again registered a rising number of visitors and exhibitors.

•••• Each Actor® statuette is individually cast in solid bronze using the lost wax process, then is given a green-black patina finish and mounted on a base of polished black granite by a small team of fine arts professionals. The completed work of art weighs 12 pounds and stands 16 inches tall.

•••• The Screen Actors Guild Awards will not know how many of The Actor® statuettes it will need until the awards presenters open the envelopes on Jan. 30. Though the number of categories is known ahead of time, the possibility of multiple recipients sharing awards in the Outstanding Performance by the Cast of a Motion Picture, Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series and Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series categories makes the total number of statuettes that will be awarded unpredictable.

115- The Internet of Things at CES
"Things that didn't Internet before are now Internetting."
•••• As CES ballooned into an overwhelming crush of products, in recent years, longtime attendees griped about too much stuff and not enough substance.
•••• There was less emphasis on the typical CES electronics like televisions, tablets and smartphones, and more attention paid to industry-changing innovations such as connected, electric and driverless cars; the Internet of Things; drones; virtual reality and gaming; and entertainment tech. To reflect that shift, the Consumer Electronics Assn., which produces CES, recently changed its name to the Consumer Technology Assn. -- a symbolic move.
•••• With automakers heavy presence at CES, in recent years it has become almost as much of a car show as a consumer electronics one. Although cars weren't historically part of the CES lineup, the auto industry's participation "is an absolute natural fit" as cars have become important platforms to house technology.
• Smarter stuff
•••• Another big trend at CES was judging by all the connected gadgets and appliances unveiled at last week's Show, what's called the Internet of Things. It's about to strip you of much of your privacy.
•••• For items such as appliances and accessories, everything continues to get smarter. The fridge can tell you that you're out of milk; your bed knows how many times you tossed and how many times you turned; your blender can weigh your smoothies; and your shower can scold you for being a water hog.
•••• You have a steady stream of data about your personal behavior that can be combined with other information to provide marketers, insurers and others with extremely intimate portraits of the life you lead when you think no one's watching.
• Scary stuff -- made all the more troubling by the fact that there's very little regulation overseeing this fast-growing corner of cyberspace.
•••• "There's definitely a creepiness factor," said Gilad Rosner, founder of the Internet of Things Privacy Forum, a London think tank. "Things that didn't Internet before are now Internetting."
•••• He gave the example of someone having a so-called smart scale in their bathroom. On the plus side, it could transmit data to a smartphone app that enables you to track your weight over various lengths of time and show which foods are having the biggest impact.
•••• "But you might not know where else the information is going," A hacker could slip in through a poorly protected smart appliance and gain access to your entire home network.
•••• They could turn on all cameras and microphones in all your devices and see and hear everything you do, or shut down your entire network.
•••• There is great need for federal authorities to create rules for business' use of customer data. Rapid advances in connected devices underline the importance of privacy safeguards.
•••• It is stimated that 6.4 billion connected gadgets will be in use worldwide by the end of this year, rising to almost 21 billion by 2020. Roughly 5.5 million devices are hooked up to the Internet of Things every day.
Susan Etlinger, an analyst with San Francisco tech-research firm Altimeter Group, predicted that control of smart-device data will be the focus of aggressive industry lobbying in years ahead.

KenBurns108w.jpg 115- KEN BURNS TO RIDE IN THE 127TH TOURNAMENT OF ROSES® PARADE AS GRAND MARSHAL
PASADENA, Calif. -- Award-winning filmmaker Ken Burns, who has directed and produced some of the most admired documentaries about the history of the United States, was selected as the 2016 Tournament of Roses Grand Marshal.
•••• Throughout his almost 40-year career making documentary films, Burns, age 62, has been honored with countless awards, including 14 Emmy® Awards, two Grammy® Awards and two Oscar® nominations. Burns will ride in the 127th Rose Parade® presented by Honda, themed "Find Your Adventure" on January 1, 2016.
•••• Tournament of Roses President, Mike Matthiessen, made the announcement at a public event at Tournament House in Pasadena, during which the 2016 Grand Marshal was revealed through a celebratory documentary video created by Burns -- http://youtu.be/eUoebRg5_p8
•••• "Ken Burns is a legendary figure and a great fit for this year's Rose Parade theme, 'Find Your Adventure,'" Matthiessen said. "We're so honored to have someone like Ken, who has devoted his life to telling the story of America, lead the Rose Parade -- America's New Year Celebration® -- that provides hope and joy to millions of people around the world."
•••• The "Find Your Adventure" theme for the 2016 Rose Parade is a result of a unique partnership between the Pasadena Tournament of Roses and the U.S. National Park Service, which will celebrate its centennial in 2016. Among Burns's 2009 film, The National Parks: America's Best Idea focused on the ideas and individuals that helped propel the parks and the National Park Service into existence. The series was filmed over the course of more than six years at some of the country's most spectacular locales, from Acadia to Yosemite, Yellowstone to the Grand Canyon and the Everglades of Florida to the Gates of the Arctic in Alaska. The National Parks: America's Best Idea won Emmy® Awards for "Outstanding Nonfiction Series" and "Outstanding Writing for Nonfiction Programming," as well as the 2010 CINE Golden Eagle Award.
•••• "The Rose Parade is an annual tradition woven into the fabric of America, so it's such an honor to be chosen as the Grand Marshal," said Burns. "I've never been to the Parade in person, so this will be a new adventure for me. I'm looking forward to sharing the experience with my family and all the fans of the Rose Parade who will be watching on New Year's Day."
•••• Burns quickly became known for his style of using archival footage and photographs in documentary films, characterized by slowly zooming in and panning to subjects of interest -- deemed "The Ken Burns Effect." Since the Academy Award nominated Brooklyn Bridge in 1981, Burns has gone on to direct and produce some of the most acclaimed historical documentaries ever made, including The Civil War; Baseball; Jazz; Statue of Liberty; Huey Long; Lewis and Clark: The Journey of the Corps of Discovery; Frank Lloyd Wright; Mark Twain; Unforgivable Blackness: The Rise and Fall of Jack Johnson; The War; The Roosevelts: An Intimate History; which have all aired on PBS. For these accomplishments and more, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences honored Burns with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the News & Documentary Emmy® Awards in September 2008. Future projects that Burns has in the works include films on Jackie Robinson, the Vietnam War, the history of country music, Ernest Hemingway and the history of stand-up comedy. 
•••• Burn's next film, Jackie Robinson, made with his daughter Sarah Burns and her husband David McMahon, will air on PBS on April 11 and 12, 2016. 
•••• Burns was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1953. He graduated from Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts, in 1975 and went on to be one of the co-founders of Florentine Films.

115- CES 2015: Wearables Everywhere. Intel demos button size wearable computer
•••• Intel CEO Brian Krzanich showed off a minuscule computer, dubbed Curie, during a keynote speech at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. He pulled a button off his blazer, played hands-free pingpong with a drone and chatted with someone through a robot during the keynote presentation that pitched the computer chip maker as a solution for nearly every buzzed-about technology of the moment.
•••• The button stick let him unveil Curie, a new computing module that's the size of the button. It's tiny size emphasizes it can power a raft of new wearable technology such as rings and bracelets. Curie will become available to wearable makers this year.
•••• Curie appeared much smaller than a postage-stamp-size computer, called Edison, that Krzanich showed off at last year's CES, and is a sign that hardware makers are eager to build wearable devices of all kinds. It also points to the unwelcome size of many existing smart watches and smart glasses.
•••• The world's largest chip maker evidently sees wearables as one of the most important categories in consumer electronics. It's a belief held by a lot of other companies at CES, where gadgets meant to be worn on the body or clipped to clothing were all over the show floor this year.
•••• Intel's new device will include a Bluetooth low-energy radio, motion sensors, and components designed to rapidly and precisely differentiate between different types of physical activity. Krzanich said Curie will run "for extended periods of time" on a coin-size battery and would be available in the second half of the year.
•••• In playing with multi-copter drones from Ascending Technologies, Krzanich showed how Intel's depth-sensing camera technology called RealSense allows drones to fly themselves without colliding into objects. Stick one in between two people and it will "bounce" back and forth between them.
•••• RealSense cameras can also be attached to robots that have video-chatting screens, meaning you could walk down the hall and the robot would tag along to keep a conversation going. A Food Network app coming in the spring that uses RealSense will let chefs flick through a recipe by swiping their hand in the air or saying voice commands. Attached to a special jacket, RealSense can give visually-impaired people a sense of space.
•••• Krzanich also showed how Intel technology plays a role in 3-D printers from HP and in security systems for smart homes from ADT. Several Marriott hotels will have wireless charging stations in the coming months powered by Intel technology, Krzanich said.

• PASADENA, Calif. -- Pasadena Celebrates New Year with Rose Parade
By Gary Sunkin
•••• Known as the most favorite parade to kick off the New Year for thousands of spectators who lined the 5 1/2 mile parade route through Pasadena. With temperatures dipping into the 30s crowed braved the chill for the 126th Rose Parade, and embraced an occasional beam of sunshine as some were bundled up in blankets and scarfs in grandstand seats and choice spots on sidewalks along the route. The 2015 theme chowcased those who "elevate the human spirit by who they are, what they have done and what they continue to do.
•••• Every year I revel in the excitement, exuberance and optimism in the air, and again this year's themed "Inspiring Stories", didn't find me disappointed.
•••• "Inspiring Stories" was the theme of the 126th Rose Parade presented by Honda.
•••• The very nature of this theme allows us to reflect on and appreciate many people around us who elevate the human spirit by who they are, what they have done, and what they continue to do. It pays tribute to those who have loved unconditionally, persevered courageously, endured patiently and accomplished much on behalf of others.
•••• They may be "heroes" or "stars" to some, but they don't seek such titles. They may be kind, resilient, free-spirited or intensely focused, and though different from one another, they are all inspiring because they have overcome obstacles, achieved the unthinkable, given immeasurably or sacrificed unselfishly. Whether for justice, for charity, or for any other good, they do so humbly and with resolve. It is the story of their journey that enriches our lives regardless of the fulfillment of the purpose.
•••• The people we select to be a part of our year-long preparation for America's New Year Celebration &endash; whether it is part of the Rose Parade or the Rose Bowl Game -- will share their stories in an effort to inspire others.
• GRAND MARSHAL OF THE 2015 ROSE PARADE
Olympian and World War II prisoner of war, Louis Zamperini, a true American hero who survived excessive hardships will be the Grand Marshal for the 2015 Rose Parade, themed "Inspiring Stories." Despite Mr. Zamperini's passing, the Tournament of Roses is dedicated to honoring him as the Grand Marshal of the 2015 Rose Parade.
•••• Zamperini wrote his personal history in the book "Devil at My Heels" and his life story was documented in the New York Times best-selling book, "Unbroken," written by Pulitzer Prize winning author, Laura Hillenbrand. In December 2014, Universal Pictures will release the movie, "Unbroken," a feature adaptation of the book. Born in 1917 to Italian immigrants, Zamperini moved to Torrance, California in 1919 and became a world-class runner by the end of high school. Qualifying to run in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin, he was America's top finisher in the 5000 meter run, finishing the final lap in 56 seconds and causing Adolf Hitler to request a personal meeting with the track star.
•••• During World War II, Zamperini retired from running and joined the U.S. Armed Forces as a bombardier in the South Pacific. While on a reconnaissance mission, Zamperini's aircraft crashed into the Pacific Ocean. He and a crewmate survived for 47 days in shark-infested waters eventually drifting into a Japanese-controlled region where he was held and tortured for another two years. He survived the brutality of the war and came back to Southern California where he was treated like a hero and celebrated for his longevity. Zamperini married, had a family and started on a quest of forgiveness as an inspirational speaker -- meeting with and forgiving the Japanese military guards who tortured him.
•••• Zamperini lectured around the world on how to deal with stress, the meaning of Olympic spirit and the freedom he found through a personal relationship with God.
•••• Louis Zamperini joined the impressive ranks of those who have fulfilled this role before.

THE ROSE BOWL GAME, THE GRANDDADDY OF THEM ALL-
known as the oldest of bowls, the Rose Bowl Game kicked off a myriad college football legacies in 1902. Since then, the game has been home to 17 Heisman Trophy winners, produced 29 national champions, featured 203 consensus All-Americans and honored 110 college football legends by inducting them into the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame.
•••• The first Tournament of Roses football game, which was the first post-season football game in the nation, was staged at Tournament Park on January 1, 1902. The game matched the West Coast's Stanford against Midwestern Michigan. (The teams would later become members of today's Pac-12 and Big Ten conferences, respectively.) Michigan routed Stanford, 49-0, prompting the football contest to be replaced with Roman-style chariot races inspired by the literary classic Ben-Hur. Football was permanently reinstated as part of the Tournament's traditions in 1916.
•••• The exclusive agreement among the Tournament of Roses Association, the Big Ten Conference and the Pac-12 Conference was born in 1946, and the first game played under the agreement took place on January 1, 1947. The pact is the oldest intercollegiate postseason bowl agreement between two major conferences in the United States.
•••• This collegiate classic has been the occasion of many firsts. The Rose Bowl Game was the occasion of first local radio broadcast of an East-West bowl game in 1926, the first transcontinental radio broadcast of a sporting event in 1927, the first local telecast of a college football game in 1948, the first national telecast of a college football game in 1952 and the first coast-to-coast color telecast of a collegiate football game in 1962.
••••The 101st Rose Bowl Game will be a College Football Playoff semifinal game which will be held on January 1, 2015 at the Rose Bowl Stadium. This game will match Florida State vs. Oregon as selected by the College Football Playoff Selection Committee to compete for a spot in the College Football Playoff Championship to be played on January 12, 2015 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX.

Oregon and Florida State to Play in College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Rose Bowl
•••• PASADENA, Calif. -- The No. 2 CFP-ranked Oregon Ducks, champions of the Pac-12 Conference, and the No. 3 CFP-ranked Florida State Seminoles, champions of the ACC Conference, have earned berths to play in the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual at 1:30 p.m. PT (4:30 p.m. ET), Thursday, January 1, 2015, at the Rose Bowl Stadium.
•••• "The Tournament of Roses is pleased to host Oregon and Florida State at this year's Playoff Semifinal at the Rose Bowl Game," said Tournament of Roses President Rich Chinen. "We look forward to an exciting matchup in Pasadena on New Year's Day as these two teams compete in the Granddaddy of Them All for a spot in the first-ever College Football Playoff National Championship."
•••• Oregon finished the year with a 12-1 overall record (8-1 in conference). The Ducks return to the Rose Bowl Game for their seventh appearance all-time; the last taking place in 2012. Oregon is 2-4 overall in its Rose Bowl Game appearances.
•••• Florida State closed out the regular season at 13-0, (8-0 in conference) and will be appearing in the Rose Bowl Game for the first time in history. The Seminoles have a 1-0 at Rose Bowl Stadium, having won the BCS National Championship in 2014.
•••• The 101st Rose Bowl Game will mark the first-ever meeting between the Ducks and the Seminoles. The winner of the Playoff Semifinal at the Rose Bowl Game will earn a spot in the 2015 College Football Playoff National Championship, which will take place on January 12, 2015 in North Texas.

2014
CANNES-- 115- "Mongolia's Got Talent"
quipped Simon Cowell recently at his keynote accepting the honors of Mipcom's Personality of the Year award, dressed with his trademark white shirt and interviewed by Pierce Morgan.
• He plans to bring 'X Factor' back to America.
•••• "I believe that I and Fox gave up too early on 'X Factor,'" said Cowell of the show that was canceled after three seasons. "I do know because I'm the music business that 'X Factor' is the best music format in the world and it only takes one artist, a Susan Boyle, or a One Direction for the whole thing to turns on its head. So I'll be the one to bring 'X Factor' back to America."
• Expectation set too high-
as he was reflecting on the underwhelming performance of "X Factor" in the States, "I think the first year we made a really good series but I said it would get 20 million people and we got 12 million. If I hadn't opened my big mouth it would have been perceived as a hit. I thought we could achieve in one year what we achieved in 10 years in the U.K."
••••Cowell also said the fact the U.S. launch of 'The Voice" -- which also included the mentorship element -- right before "X Factor" was also a setback.
His future endeavors include expansion into feature films-
kicking off with an animated feature based on the Betty Boop franchise, among two other animated projects.
••••"We're moving slowly (in film) and with the same thinking that applies to what we do with TV. You have to find the best in their field," said Cowell. "So when we decided to go into animation we partnered up with Animal Logic Entertainment because they had done the animation on "The Lego Movie." They weren't too big but they were the best in the business so we created a partnership with them."
••••Added Cowell, "We'll look at other vehicles basically designed to be successful as films but also designed to sell music -- there are so many of these shows now with so many artists on that I look at something like 'High School Musical' and think maybe that's the route to go now."
Looking back on his early days in the biz-
"I consider myself very lucky because I was here in Cannes at Midem, the music equivalent to Mipcom 30 years ago, when I was trying to run a company and I literally didn't sell anything during the week. I went back home pretty depressed so the fact that I'm here today talking about some of the things I've achieved, I feel incredibly happy. It is work but it's also passion."

"Let me be clear. If someone acts to divide the Internet between 'haves' and 'have-nots,' we will use every power at our disposal to stop it," Wheeler said. "As chairman of the FCC, I do not intend to allow innovation to be strangled by the manipultion of the most important network of our time, the Internet."
•••The Cable Show, the industry's 2014 annual gathering in Los Angeles had no shortage of news to pick apart given Comcast's 45 billion deal  to buy Time Warner Cable as well as the deal Comcast cut with Charter Communications.
•••• But what was actually on the minds of many were the companies that weren't at the show at all: Netflix, Hulu, Amazon.com, Google, Yahoo, AT&T, Verizon, Dish and DirecTV -- essentially every company that isn't strictly speaking a cable company.
•••• However, the fact that Netflix was nowhere to be found at the show, either at the session or on the exhibition floor, was telling.
•••••The National Cable and Telecommunications Association, which runs the Cable Show, says companies such as Netflix have appeared at the conference in the past to participate on panels, but they've never been a big presence.
•••• Many of the cable networks, such as Turner (which owns CNN and TNT), Fox News, Discovery Communications and AMC were there partly to show off their programming, but mostly to take meetings with the cable industry. Privately, some of them have said the conference would be more useful if the satellite and telephone companies were also here.
•••• If the Comcast merger is approved by regulators, Time Warner Cable won't exist next year.

tviNews Reports
By: Josie Cory, Mark Anderson, and Troy Cory

i/dh-TroyInterviewer-108.jpg••••In an era that has seen the downsizing or demise of most household-name tradeshows, Digital Hollywood is flourishing as a sort of live-content aggregator attracting various industry stalwarts to hold private meetings all at the same venue, then network together at conference tracks, keynote roundtables and after-hours parties.
•••• Victor Harwood who is presiding over several annual trade shows dealing with entertainment, media, advertising and technology events, besides Digital Hollywood, said back in 2007, "The idea of putting together a tradeshow by hassling people to buy booth space is old -- anyone who did that is not in business anymore."
•••• His upcoming Spring confab at the Ritz Carlton Hotel, in Marina Del Rey, CA, made up of separate multi-track but co-located events is still the only conference that brings together creatives, agents, distributors, technologists, financiers, lawyers and media -- legally, it's very hard for a lot of these people to be in the same room, unless there's a common purpose and a common theme. More minds have been changed -- at Digital Hollywood than at any other conference."

/Imagescustomers/DigitalHollywood108w.jpg106-AereoVs.Broadcasters -
The Areo Debate "To Be or Not to Be," provided food for a heated discussion at the Digital Hollywood Spring conference May 7, 2014. Moderated by James M. Burger, Partner, Thompson Coburn, Neil W. Netanel, Professor of Law, UCLA Law School; John C. Ulin Partner, Arnold and Porter midway through the debate were interreupted by questions of the audience which became increasingly agitated. It did make for a lively debate though considering the fact that most panelists usually take questions only at the end of a panel discussion.
•••• A ruling to be followed closely by advocates of net neutrality, and broadcasters, the US Supreme Court justices questioned the legality of Areo as they weighed whether the starup violates copyright law by recording over-the-air programming from an off-site antenna and delivering it to customers via the internet. Areo aims to upend the broadcast industry's decades-old business model by letting customers in 11 cities watch live and recorded shows for as little as $8 a month.
•••• Barry Diller, Chairman and Senior Executive of media company, IAC/InterActiveCorp, said broadcasters are seeking to stifle innovation for their own financial gain by suing to shut down Aereo Inc., the streaming-video company he's backing. "I am really tired of being accused of stealing anyone else's programming when we are not," Diller said. "It's kind of obnoxious to take away programming they have promised the public they could receive directly simply because they want to take away every dollar from consumers.


••••Aereo's faceoff at the nation's highest court against broadcasters including 21st Century Fox Inc., and CBS Corp, stemmed from its bid to forge a technological route around the television companies' copyrights. It was Diller, co-creator of Fox's broadcast network, who pushed Aereo beyond its original plan to offer services only in parts of New York, Aereo CEO Chet Kanojia stated.
•••The Supreme Court arguments didn't indicate a like outcome, as justices, including Stephen Breyer repeatedly questioned whether ruling against Aereo would broadly imperil cloud-computing technologies that let consumers remotely store content such as video and access it through the Web.
•••• U.S. copyright law gives owners the exclusive right to perform their works "publicly." If Areo is deemed to be a public rather than private performance, the ruling may affect cloud storage offerings from companies like Google Inc., Dropbox Inc., Apple, Amazon.com Inc. and Box Inc.
•••• "If you stop Aereo, you stop technology," Diller said.

106- FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler to address 2014 NAB SHOW

ImagesPersonOfTheWeek/RoseParade2014-108.jpg115- Tournament of Roses Parade Celebrates 125th Anniversary, - Jan 1. 2014 - By Gary Sunkin
PASADENA, Calif. -- There might not have been a better way to open 2014 than with Vin Scully, the legendary Dodgers broadcaster as the Grand Marshal of the Rose Parade in Pasadena, who performed the ceremonial coin toss on the field before the Rose Bowl between Michigan State and Stanford.
••••It was not Scully's first involvement with the Rose Parade. A mere 48 years ago, he co-hosted with Elizabeth Montgomery.
••••Most of the week leading up to the Rose Bowl has involved several pre-parade events and luncheons, with several media members happy to meet Scully.
• Known as the most favorite parade to kick off the New Year for thousands of spectators who lined the 5 1/2 mile parade route through Pasadena. Every year I revel in the excitement, exuberance and optimism in the air, and again this year's themed "Dreams come True" Rose Parade, didn't find me disappointed.
••• It has come a long way since its early days. The Rose Parade's elaborate floats now feature high-tech computerized animation and exotic natural materials from around the world. Although a few floats are still built exclusively by volunteers from their sponsoring communities, most are built by professional float building companies and take nearly a year to construct. The year-long effort pays off on New Year's morning, when millions of viewers around the world enjoy the Rose Parade.
••••The first Rose Queen was crowned in 1905, and every year since 1929, Rose Queens and Rose Princesses have been a part of the Tournament of Roses.
•••• Every Parade needs a Grand Marshal, and the Rose Parade has had some of the world's most distinguished individuals serving in that honored position. Past Grand Marshals have included actors, astronauts, writers, artists, athletes and political figures.
•••• Early Grand Marshals were local heroes, many of them Tournament organizers. The first Grand Marshal from outside Pasadena was San Francisco Mayor James Rolph in 1930, and as the Tournament grew, so did the stature of its Grand Marshals. Mary Pickford, Earl Warren, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Gregory Peck, Bob Hope, Erma Bombeck, Henry "Hank" Aaron, the Apollo 12 astronauts, John Wayne, Frank Sinatra, Kate Smith, Gerald Ford, Lee Iaccoca, James Stewart, Pele and Angela Lansbury are just a few of the distinguished individuals who have held the honored position. 1966 Grand Marshal Walt Disney rode in the Parade with Mickey Mouse, and Edgar Bergen brought Charlie McCarthy along in 1940. Shirley Temple, who was a 10-year old movie star when she led the 50th Rose Parade returned as diplomat Shirley Temple Black to serve as Grand Marshal of the Tournament's Centennial celebration in 1989.
Celebrated Singers Clayton, Fischer, Hill and Love
to sing National Anthem at historic 120th ROSE BOWL GAME

Merry Clayton, Lisa Fischer, Judith Hill and Darlene Love will kick off the pre-game festivities at the 100th Rose Bowl Game presented by VIZIO with a special performance of the Star-Spangled Banner on January 1, 2014, at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena.
••••Clayton, Fischer, Hill and Love star in the critically-acclaimed 2013 RADiUS film, "20 Feet From Stardom" by award-winning director Morgan Neville, which spotlights the untold stories of backup singers behind some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century such as Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Mick Jagger and Sting. On Tuesday, December 3, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that 20 Feet From Stardom made the Academy Awards shortlist in the Documentary Feature category.
••••Clayton lent her voice to a number of major performing artists during the 1960s with her most notable performance being a duet with Mick Jagger on the Rolling Stones' song, "Gimme Shelter." She began her career on Bobby Darin's "Who Can I Count On," which led to legendary Lou Adler signing her in 1970 and her debut solo album, "Gimme Shelter." As an actress, Clayton appeared in the films Blame it on the Night and Maid to Order. Currently, she is putting the finishing touches on her long-anticipated new CD.
•••• Fischer rose to fame in 1991 with her debut album, So Intense, which produced the Grammy Award&endash;winning hit single, "How Can I Ease the Pain." Prior to her solo career, she began as a backup singer for a number of famous artists, including Luther Vandross for 22 years and Tina Turner on her Twenty Four Seven Tour, the top-grossing worldwide tour of 2000. Fischer has also toured with the Rolling Stones since 1989. In 2013, she joined the rock band Nine Inch Nails, as a backing vocalist for their Tension 2013 tour.
•••• Hill, Sony Music recording artist, has been praised by Rolling Stone for her "stellar powerhouse vocals." In addition to penning and performing her own material, Hill backed artists such as Stevie Wonder, Elton John and the late Michael Jackson. She was also a contestant on season four of The Voice. She contributed backing vocals to three tracks on Josh Groban's latest chart topping album, All That Echoes, and opened for Groban on his Fall 2013 In The Round arena tour. Judith is currently in the studio working on her debut.
•••• Since the early sixties, Love has done it all - from major motion pictures like the highly successful Lethal Weapon series to Broadway hits like Hairspray and Grease and even appearing in numerous television shows. Her background vocals for The Blossoms, The Crystals, The Righteous Brothers, Dionne Warwick, Marvin Gaye and Elvis Presley, set the stage for her emergence as a star in her own right. In 2011, Love recieved the industry's highest award when she was inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
•••• This will mark the only known time in the game's history that the national anthem will be performed by an artist rather than a Rose Bowl Game participating team band.
•••• In continuing with tradition, Vin Scully, an icon in American sports history and "the voice of the Los Angeles Dodgers" for 64 years, will toss the coin at the start of the 100th Rose Bowl Game as the Grand Marshal for the 125th Tournament of Roses Parade, themed "Dreams Come True."
•••• Pre-game festivities begin at 1:30 p.m. PT. The game will feature the Michigan State Spartans, champions of the Big Ten Conference, versus the Stanford Cardinal, champions of the Pac-12 Conference.

The 31ST INTERNATIONAL FILMFEST MÜNCHEN (June 28 - July 6) is presenting 174 films from 48 countries. Films by and starring women make up a significant part of this year's program.
•••• Germany's biggest summer film festival will be showing the best new films from around the world. They are all German premieres. There are also two specials, one on outstanding TV series - The New Epics - and another entitled Films and Games. The Homage section is showing classic movies with British actor Sir Michael Caine, the recipient of Filmfest München's CineMerit Award this year. Retrospectives will be honoring Italian director Paolo Sorrentino and Chilean filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky. Both will be on hand at the festival to present their latest films. 32 films will be having their world premieres at FILMFEST MÜNCHEN - 13 their European premieres.
•••• "2013 will be a festival in which women play an unusually strong role", said Diana Iljine, Festival Director of FILMFEST MÜNCHEN. "Many of this year's films focus on courageous women. The many great actress and directors are one of this year's highlights."
•••• Altogether there are 37 female directors at this year's Filmfest. The opening night film Exit Marrakech (June 28) is by Oscar winner Caroline Link (Nowhere in Africa) and is a world premiere. Sandra Nettelbeck's film Mr. Morgan's Last Love starring Michael Caine and Clémence Poésy is a European premiere. Saudi Arabian filmmaker Haifaa al-Mansour is presenting Wadjda, the first Saudi Arabian film to be directed by a woman. Acclaimed French film and stage director Ariane Mnouchkine will be in Munich for the world premiere of her latest film Les Naufragés Du Fol Espoir.

The German actresses include Christiane Paul, Veronica Ferres, Julia Koschitz, Barbara Auer, Katja Riemann, Hannelore Hoger and Claudia Michelsen.
••••Women who make it despite all odds are big topic at this year's festival. Like the supermarket cashiers who discover women's wrestling in Les Reines du Ring. In Everyday, the new film by British director Michael Winterbottom, the wife of a prison convict manages to master the trials and tribulations of raising 4 children by herself. The Immigrant deals with a Polish woman who emmigrates to the US in the 1920s. In Le Noir (Te) Vous Va Si Bien the daughter of Muslim immigrants to France bucks her father's traditional thinking. The stronger sex also shines in films about romance.
•••• In Les Beaux Jours, a retired dentist (Fanny Ardant) is attracted to the computer teacher in her senior citizen club. In Mr. Morgan's Last Love a young, impulsive woman (Clémence Poésy) rekindles the love of life in a melancholy American widower and reminds him of the importance of friendship. The German Love Steaks focuses on a young woman who is a cook at a wellness hotel and becomes passionately involved with the shy new masseur there. In the Chinese romantic comedy The Love Songs of Tiedan, a young man is infatuated with the three daughters of a former neighbor he was in love with as a child. In the French drama La Vie D'Adèle, winner of this year's Golden Palm, a young girl finds strength in a passionate love affair with another young woman.
•••• There are also many films from the Near and Middle East about courageous women in different phases of their lives who break out of the traditional moulds they have been forced into and who want to determine what they want out of life. In Wadjda, the title character, a young girl in Saudi Arabia, is not going to let anyone rob her of her dream of having a bicycle. In the Russian film The Empty Home a fearless girl sets out from Kirgizstan in search of a better life. And in THE PATIENCE STONE, an Afghani wife confronts her comatose husband with what is going on behind her veil and in her mind about their marriage.
Julie Christie as well as directors Michael Haneke, Barry Levinson and Milos Forman.

115- Steven Spielberg heads jury at Cannes Film Festival
CANNES, May 15, 2013 -- Once a year, "the entire world comes together at Cannes."
Steven Spielberg introducing this year's nine-person Cannes Film Festival jury at the opening press conference said, "We're always sitting in personal private judgment of the films we see."
••• Therefore it was time, to take it public and accept the film festival's offer to serve as the main competition jury president, an offer made several times in the past, though his work schedule never permitted it, he said.
••• Also serving as jurors are actors Nicole Kidman, Christoph Waltz, Daniel Auteuil, Vidaya Balan and directors Cristian Mungiu, Naomi Kawasi, Lynn Ramsey and twice Academy Award Winner Ang Lee. The jury selects the winners for acting, screenplay, direction and, honored with the Palme d'Or, the award given the film of the year. Last year's Palme winner was Michael Haneke's "Amour."
••• Spielberg noted that it's apples and oranges to assess movies designed to get "as many people into the theaters as possible" by the same criteria as films compelled by more adventurous impulses. "Honesty" and "courage": those will be the key attributes in the competition titles as viewed by Spielberg's fellow juror, director Cristian Mungiu, who won the Palme in 2007, for "4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days."
••• Spielberg last came to the Croisette in 2008 for the world premier of "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull." Released to generally positive reviews, it it was also a financial success, grossing over $786 million worldwide.

CANNES, France-- Palm D'Or goes to the French
The hometown favorite won big time at the Festival de Cannes as France's Blue Is the Warmest Color walked off with the Palme d'Or. Jury president Steven Spielberg announced in a highly unusual step, that the prize was given not only to director Abdellatif Kechiche, as considered traditional, but to co-stars Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux as well. Both actresses were in tears by the time they reached the stage.
•••• The sexually explicit story of a young woman discovering desire and herself, Blue was the great favorite of French critics but divided English speakers, who called it everything from voyeuristic to a three-hour Sundance movie in French.
•••• The film, whose French title is La Vie d'Adèle, will be distributed in the US by IFC's Sundance Selects.
•••• Kechiche's movie displays that same degree of intimacy with his actresses in the scenes when they have their clothes on. For the younger, fragile teen at the center of the plot -- also named Adéle -- blue-haired art student Emma (Seydoux) provides a gateway to experiences far beyond the limitations of her conservative social circle. Some of the tender moments make the explicit scenes especially noteworthy:
•••• Kechiche's film plays to the possibilities of uncensored storytelling that ignores traditional boundaries without playing for shock value. It's a tender romance and undoubtedly one of the best movies about nascent adulthood in recent years.
Not Playing it Safe
Spielberg himself makes no apologies about directing movies aimed at the largest audiences possible, but as a unit, the Cannes jurors did a fine job highlighting the merits of not playing it safe. This was evident not only in the selection of the winners but the snubs: -- Steven Soderbergh's Liberace biopic "Behind the Candelabra" won plenty of accolades for Michael Douglas' performance, but ultimately amounted to a giddy by-the-numbers treatment of the show-biz icon -- however, a skillfully made one.

115- Springtime in Cannes
By Josie Cory
A h h h . . . Spring in Cannes…where mild breezes blow as the warm Mediterranean sun smiles over this beautiful spot on the Cote d'Azur. There you can feel a timeless sensuality, assuaging a nostalgia for the Mediterranean which since as far back as the 16th century has been a constant theme in many a Northern European's life.
• • "Now give us lands where the olives grow," Cried the North to the South, "Where the sun with a golden mouth can blow blue bubbles of grapes down the vineyard row!" Cried the North to the South. (to borrow a phrase from the English writer Elizabeth Barret Browning).
• •"Cannes," wrote Charles Lentheric, the indispensable and erudite historian of maritime Provence, in 1880, "is a town where you feel no need to work," and "where the inhabitants were not interested in the world that lay beyond their shady gardens, or the sheltered balconies of their hotels."
• • Now the world has come to Cannes, chosen it to be their Mediterranean queen for its annual events, and when you stroll along the Croisette on some warm April day you will hardly share Mr. Lenteric's sentiments. Voila! Cannes! It has emerged truly cosmopolitan.

• 115- 124th Rose Parade - Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2013, Pasadena By Gary Sunkin
•••• Known as the most favorite parade to kick off the New Year for thousands of spectators who lined the 5 1/2 mile parade route through Pasadena. With temperatures dipped into the low 40s everyone embraced an occasional beam of sunshine as some were bundled up in blankets and scarfs in grandstand seats and choice spots on sidewalks along the route.
•••• Every year I revel in the excitement, exuberance and optimism in the air, and again this year's themed "Oh the Places You'll Go!! Rose Parade, didn't find me disappointed.
•••• The "A Healing Place" float honored nursing professionals around the world, and the 2013's president of the Sally Bixby, the first nurse and second woman to lead the pageant founded in 1890 to enhance Southern California's image as a perceived paradise of sunshine and flowers.
•••• However, maybe the most dramatic moment was when Army Sgt. 1st Class, Eric Pazz, bounded off the platform in combat boots and fatigues with his surprised little son dashing from the sidewalk into his father's arms, believed by his family to be still in Afghanistan. The crowd leaped into a standing ovation and moments later he presented his wife with a rose and the family boarded the float "Canines with Courage," honoring military dogs.
•••• Riding in a horse drawn carriage adorned with roses and fern, was tournament's Grand Marshall, Jane Goodall, internationally renowned primatolologist known for her life's commitment in Africa and for peace around the globe. 2013 will be the 53rd anniversary of her field study of the Gombe chimpanzees. 
•••• Escorting the 42-flower-bedecked floats were 21 silver-studded equestrian units prancing to the beat of of the nation's top marching bands. There were many crowd pleasers among breathtaking floats and the San Jose Valley Christian/Beijing, China No. 57 School "East-West Fusion Band," was the first internationally combined high school band in Rose Parade history.
•••• "We are very thoughtful about making this parade a positive, caring and uplifting way to start the new year," Rose Parade president Sally Bixby said during an earlier interview.
•••• All in all, as always, it was a spectacular parade.

••• December 2012 - The 124th Rose Parade presented by Honda themed "Oh, the Places You'll Go!" will take place on Tuesday, January 1, 2013, featuring spirited marching bands from throughout the nation, majestic floral floats, and high-stepping equestrian units.
•••• The 124th Rose Parade (which is often referred to as the "Rose Bowl Parade") will be broadcast on ABC, Hallmark Channel, HGTV, KTLA (Tribune), NBC, RFD-TV and Univision. The Parade is also seen in more than 220 international territories and countries.
•••• The Grand Marshal of the 124th Tournament of Roses, Dr. Jane Goodall On New Year's Day, will ride in the 124th Rose Parade® presented by Honda and themed "Oh, the Places You'll Go!."  She will then toss the coin before the 99th Rose Bowl Game® presented by VIZIO.  Dr. Goodall has been an inspiration to the Pasadena Tournament of Roses as the organization continues to seek ways to make the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl Game more sustainable by finding ways to evolve waste-management practices and inspire that change in those who participate in Tournament of Roses events.
•••• "We selected our theme, 'Oh, the Places You'll Go!' with Dr. Goodall in mind as Grand Marshal," said Tournament of Roses President Sally Bixby. "The theme can be interpreted as a celebration of accomplishment, discovery and travel of course, but equally valid is its implicit call to action.  We think Dr. Goodall's life story is a testament to the sense of adventure and openness to possibility that this phrase suggests:  As a young woman, she defied convention to follow her dreams, and she has committed herself to a life of global citizenship, inspiring children and adults alike along the way.  2013 will be the 53rd anniversary of her field study of the Gombe chimpanzees.  I can think of no one whose life has better exemplified our theme and message than Dr. Jane Goodall.  Dr. Goodall is now an international icon, but it is her passion for discovery and how she has used her celebrity for the betterment of the world that has drawn us to her."

115- Le Festival De Cannes, France, May 16-27 - Celebrates its 65th Edition and Joins Ranks with Sean Penn. By Josie Cory
Ever since its creation, the Festival de Cannes has remained faithful to its founding purpose: to draw attention to and raise the profile of films with the aim of contributing towards the development of cinema, boosting the film industry worldwide and celebrating cinema at an international level.
••• Thierry Frémaux , chief of the Cannes Film Festival as well as managing director of the Institut Lumière de Lyon, recently stated, "Cannes belongs to each and every one of us who, year after year, from wherever we are and in our own individual way, contributes towards creating it step by step. It is only by constantly analyzing the Festival, adapting its function and encouraging debate about it that we will continue to make it the very best it can be. Cannes must be open to new ideas, while remaining faithful to its past, of course. Diversity can only enrich it. That´s what makes the Festival de Cannes our festival."
•••This year, the Festival de Cannes welcomes Haiti: Carnival in Cannes, a benefit event presented by Giorgio Armani in support of Sean Penn's J/P HRO, Paul Haggis' Artists for Peace and Justice and Petra Nemcova's Happy Heart's Fund for their united and extraordinary work in Haiti.
••• To help them carry out their extraordinary work and to pay tribute to their tireless humanitarian activities, the Festival de Cannes is hosting a gala fund raising event in support of the Haitian cause. This event is the first of its kind for the Festival de Cannes, since the benefit screening of Il était une fois, l'Amérique by Sergio Leone in 1984 in support of the Institut Pasteur, and the screening of Paolo and Vittorio Taviani's film Elective Affinities in 1996, in support of the reconstruction of the Fenice.
••• Sean Penn has a very close connection with the Festival de Cannes, having presented films in Competition (including The Pledge in 2001, which he directed) and in Un Certain Regard, and he served as President of the Jury in 2008.
••• The Festival de Cannes is very proud to join ranks with Sean Penn, Paul Haggis and Petra Nemcova in their fight to help Haiti and its inhabitants.
••• Gilles Jacob commented, "People say that a great actor is by nature egocentric, and that a great director is focussed on his art. Sean Penn is both a great actor and director. What he does above and beyond that for the people and the land of Haiti, giving freely of himself, his abiding presence, his work &endash; one could almost say the work of his own hands &endash; his whole discreet, human, moral and altruistic involvement as a benefactor, commands our greatest respect."
••• Thierry Fremaux commented, "Sean Penn is a good friend of the Festival de Cannes, he came in Competition as an actor and as a director, he was President of the Jury. But it is not the only reason why we offered to receive him. We are greatly fascinated by his permanent and long-lasting commitment to Haiti's recovery. And we are very pleased to be a part of this evening which intends to raise money and honor the Haitians themselves."
••• Giorgio Armani added, "I am proud to stand alongside Sean Penn, a man cut from a very rare cloth. He first captivated me as an astonishing actor. Then as a respected director. Then as a loyal friend. And now, as a life changer. It is an honor to be a part of Sean's remarkable life of service by joining his humanitarian efforts for the people of Haiti. For this to come to fruition at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival marks a career milestone for me, and demonstrates what happens when you work with Sean, a world-class force of nature."

109-dealtosteal680.html -- The Wireless Telephone®™© - "the Movie."

"Sometimes an idea whose timeTroyCSnews111-108w.jpg
has come -- is just a little too soon!"
••• This fast-moving, epic-scale 440 page tviPublishing.com book, documents over 110 years of the device itself, and the effects & elements of The Wireless Telephone®™©. The device, and the elements and effects attached thereto, were first developed, registered, demonstrated, and published by: NATHAN B. STUBBLEFIELD, of MURRAY, KENTUCKY
•••The sole purpose of the public Wireless Telephone®™© demonstrations was to sell territorial deeds throughout the U.S.A. for the use of his WiTEL®™© device for broadcasting purposes, that including his 7 digital TeleKey Area Code connecting system.
••• Since that time, 1892 to 2012, the improvments of his designs and the maintanance of his intelectual property rights by his territorial deed Wireless Telephone®™© holders, and his heirs. A few of the name changes used, and accepted by the NBSwitel.com organization to identify and update the Wireless Telephone®™© name to fit modern-day unsage include: Radio, Television, LookRadio, WiTEL, CellPhone, iPhone, Firewire-187, etc.
••• Like authors of the Bell & Edison inventions, the NBS WirelessTelephone.org family will own the nbswitel.com intellectual property rights -- "FOREVER MINUS A DAY."
••• The five chapters of WiTEL facts, and true-life adventures of one of the most unsung inventors in history, whose revolutionary innovations have effected every human being on the planet over the last three generations! Based on the true story of inventor and part-time melon farmer Nathan B. Stubblefield's (and subsequently his grandson Troy Cory's) battle with the government and U.S. telephone industry.
••• "Firewire" tells the tale of two very different men from two very different eras who share not only the same blood, but the same fight - whose battle to receive recognition for the invention of the wireless telephone would come at a heavy price. But the determined small-town inventor and the impassioned big-city entertainer both refused to be silenced, and they took on the rural backstabbers and the corporate titans alike in a battle that nobody thought either could win.
••• The Stubblefields started out as a typical 1880's Kentucky family, trying to live their version of the American Dream, but ended up as anything but! When Nathan invents a unique device that he prophesied would eventually be used by nearly everyone in the world &endash; he was not far from wrong. Decades later, when his grandson learns that it was his relative who indeed invented the wireless phone, Cory thinks he's struck gold. But his aspirations are dashed after the telephone monopolies and political pirates who initially seized Stubblefield's creation as their own are just as determined to shut out his descendant decades later, as well.
•••Ignored, threatened and then buried in years of struggle, Cory is haunted by what was done to his family. He becomes a man obsessed with justice and the conviction that his grandfather's life work &endash; or for that matter, anyone's work &endash; be acknowledged by those who stood to benefit. And while paying the toll for refusing to compromise his dignity, this everyday David will try the unthinkable: to strategically bring Goliath to his knees in a cooperation with truth and justice for all. --Donna Jeffries
• "You don't get to bust through the
airwaves without catching a little static
••• Across the landscape of the American Industrial Revolution, within the field of urban electrification and communication, the legacy of prominent inventors such as George Westinghouse, Thomas Edison, and Alexander Graham Bell stand proud. Their achievements celebrated, their status recognized. But they do not stand alone. Concealed by the shadows of history, and even more by the deviousness of corrupt men in power, is the figure of Nathan B. Stubblefield, a contemporary of those great men and one of that era's most innovative and prolific inventors..
••• At the time of his death in 1928, Stubblefield had been granted dozens of patents, mostly relating to electrical and wireless technologies. His inventions completely revolutionized the world of communications that we know today, yet not many people even know his name. With over 5.6 billion wireless phones in use today - there's no denying, wireless technology has irreversibly changed the world..
••• This story will open your eyes and challenge what you think you know about not only your cell phone, but the challenges and the victories that brought these innovations to us in the first place. More importantly, it gives us insight into the human tragedy and triumph that was and still is a part of the reality of our most innovative technological pioneers today in America. --Donna Jeffries

115- MIP, Palais des Festivals, Cannes, France. Cannes, April 1 -- Fremantle announces a new collaboration with Hulu; and David Ellender who runs Fremantle Media Enterprises, has signed a major first-look deal with producer Justin Bodle (The Day of the Triffids, Flood, Colditz, Archangel Crusoe) the night before the MIPTV market opened today.

Drama is in - and so are 'New Players'
•••• In the wake of the internatonal successes of dramas like Downton Abby and Mad Men, there is renewed interst from broadcasters in quality, scripted dramas, but it is not only the traditional TV broadcasters who are showing renewed interest in drama. Joining the international set of channel and programming executives that traditionally populate Cannes at this time of year, are the new players, from Amazon, Netflix and Facebook to Hulu and YouTube.  
••••In particular the subscription services like Netflix and Amazon are interested in long-running dramas because of the simple fact that they work really well in an on-demand, binge-viewing environment, according to executives who are negotiating with them. 
••••The "disruptors" Like Hulu, Netflix and Google TV have all reached the same conclusion that high-quality video is crucial to their growth plan," and they are certainly eager to work with the TV makers, with both MySpace TV--which is set to launch this summer in the US under its new ownership that includes Justin Timberlake -- and Amazon telling delegates today at MIPTV that they want to license TV content. "If you are not already talking to us you should be," said Amazon's global head of digital video Anthony Bay.
•••Amazon held separate meetings in London last week with all the big studio heads, according to an industry source to lay out its European plans which include adding France, Spain and Italy. "Amazon clearly is trying to pre-empt Netflix's next moves in Europe in talking about multi-territory deals." • CLICK FOR MORE MIP-2012

115-The 123rd Tournament of Roses Parade - By Gary Sunkin
••• The Pasadena Tournament of Roses is a volunteer organization that annually hosts the Rose Parade® presented by Honda, Rose Bowl Game® presented by VIZIO and various associated event..
•••
It has come a long way since its early days. The Rose Parade's elaborate floats now feature high-tech computerized animation and exotic natural materials from around the world. Although a few floats are still built exclusively by volunteers from their sponsoring communities, most are built by professional float building companies and take nearly a year to construct. The year-long effort pays off on New Year's morning, when millions of viewers around the world enjoy the Rose Parade.
••• The first Rose Queen was crowned in 1905, and every year since 1929, Rose Queens and Rose Princesses have been a part of the Tournament of Roses.
••• From "2010: A Cut Above The Rest," "Building Dreams, Friendships and Memories" in 2011, to this year's theme "Just Imagine," the 123rd Rose Parade presented by Honda, will take place Monday, Jan. 2, 2012, at 8 a.m. (PST) featuring majestic floral floats, high-stepping equestrian units and spirited marching bands.
••• As Grand Marshal, Iraq war verteran, R.J. Martinez will ride in the 123rd Rose Parade in front of a worldwide television audience. Following the parade, the 98th Rose Bowl Game presented by VIZIO will kick off at 2:10 p.m. (PST) and feature an exciting match-up betweenWisconsin Badgers Vs. Oregon Ducks, two of the top collegiate football teams in the nation.
••• The Rose Bowl is nicknamed "The Granddaddy of Them All" because it is the oldest bowl game. It was first played in 1902, and has been played continuously since 1916. Since 1945, it has been the highest attended college football bowl game.It is a part of the Tournament of Roses "America's New Year Celebration."
• Past Grand Marshals of the Rose Parade 1890 - 2012
•••Every Parade needs a Grand Marshal, and the Rose Parade has had some of the world's most distinguished individuals serving in that honored position. Past Grand Marshals have included actors, astronauts, writers, artists, athletes and political figures.
•••Early Grand Marshals were local heroes, many of them Tournament organizers. The first Grand Marshal from outside Pasadena was San Francisco Mayor James Rolph in 1930, and as the Tournament grew, so did the stature of its Grand Marshals. Mary Pickford, Earl Warren, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Gregory Peck, Bob Hope, Erma Bombeck, Henry "Hank" Aaron, the Apollo 12 astronauts, John Wayne, Frank Sinatra, Kate Smith, Gerald Ford, Lee Iaccoca, James Stewart, Pele and Angela Lansbury are just a few of the distinguished individuals who have held the honored position. 1966 Grand Marshal Walt Disney rode in the Parade with Mickey Mouse, and Edgar Bergen brought Charlie McCarthy along in 1940. Shirley Temple, who was a 10-year old movie star when she led the 50th Rose Parade returned as diplomat Shirley Temple Black to serve as Grand Marshal of the Tournament's Centennial celebration in 1989.

115- MIDEM - Short for Marché International du Disque et de l'Edition Musicale -
since 1967 has been held annually at and around the Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France. It is the world's largest music industry trade fair, Bringing together musicians, businesspeople, cultural policy makers, and journalists from many countries, it provides a forum for business talks, discussing political and legal issues, and showcasing new artists, musical trends and music-related products. A series of conferences are notably organised, in keeping with MIDEM's growing vocation to educate the industry about new revenue streams.
••• In spite of a large number of concerts, MIDEM considers itself primarily a marketplace, thus the artists who present are those who either run an enterprise of their own, or have been invited to promote companies. Although major labels and other corporate actors dominate the scene at MIDEM, its events also include the International Indie Summit.
••• MIDEM also acts as a venue for the NRJ Music Awards (since 2000), where French radio station NRJ welcomes the world's biggest pop stars to the Palais des Festivals the night before MIDEM begins.

2011 - 1st - 2nd - 3rd - 4th Quarter:

115 LA AutoShow - 2011
%2302/%23%23$$mmaarrttsitemaster2010/Imagescustomers/laautoshowlogo108w.jpgThe L.A. Auto Show will host some of the industry's most important new vehicle debuts and set the tone for the rest of the year.
More than 50 Vehicles (20 World Debuts and More than 30 North American) will Debut at the LA Auto Show 2011 when it opens for the Press Nov. 16 & 17 and Nov. 18-27 for the public).
•••• Mazda CEO Takashi Yamanouchi to Open show with Motor Press Guild Keynote address. This will be the 13th year the MPG presentation has opened the LA Auto Show Press Days. Preceding the keynote speech will be a welcome address from Mitch Bainwol, the newly-named president and CEO of the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers.
• As a bright spot in the overall economy,
the auto industry continues its momentum at the L.A. Show, highlighted by more than 22 manufacturer press conferences. It will be clear that automakers have invested significantly to deliver vehicles consumers want, featuring an unprecedented number of technological advancements, improved performance and design, all while decreasing carbon emissions. In addition to the 1,000 new vehicles at the show, a significant number of manufacturers have upgraded exhibit spaces and added enhanced features with more interactive content and experiences. There will also be more than a half-dozen test drives that put consumers in the seats and on the streets in some new vehicles on select days.
Notable this year,
will be a significant increase in fuel efficiency across the board in all categories. Nearly 20 highly-efficient, 40-mpg-plus vehicles, using internal combustion engines--such as the world debut of the Chevrolet Spark-- will be at the Show. A renaissance is underway for the four-cylinder engine, which in an era of rising gas prices and concern for fuel economy has become a powerplant of choice for many automakers.
Completely reengineered,
to deliver the power and torque normally associated with larger displacement engines, four cylinder designs are not just powering compacts, but finding their way into multiple platforms. Most notably, the hotly contested small crossover segment will feature two head-to-head competitive world debuts--the Ford Escape and Honda CRV. Mazda also has a new entry in this category with the North American debut of its all-new CX-5 crossover.
Underscoring that many solutions exist,
for reducing carbon emissions, a whole pack of electric vehicles are in or entering production and will be highlighted at the show, including Mitsubishi's all-electric i, the Ford Focus Electric, BMW's i3 Concept, CODA's Sedan, Nissan's LEAF and an import from Croatia, the DOK-ING XD. Hybrids and plug-in hybrids continue to grow and highlights at the show include the Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid, the new Honda Civic Hybrid and the updated Honda Insight Hybrid. BMW will also have its groundbreaking, i8 plug-in hybrid sports coupe concept.
More than half of the 50 L.A. Show debuts,
fall in the performance and luxury vehicle category like the Audi R8 GT Spyder, Porsche 911 and Jaguar C-X16 sports car concept. Bentley is returning to Los Angeles this year, premiering the marque's 2012 Continental GTC ultra-luxury convertible. The show will also feature the BMW M5, the fifth-generation edition of the sports sedan, now powered by a 4.4-liter, turbocharged, V8 engine; the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster, an open-top power statement with a 563-horsepower, 6.2-liter engine producing 479 lb-ft of torque; and what GM is calling the world's most powerful production convertible, the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, boasting 580 hp produced by a supercharged 6.2-liter V8. The AMG Roadster and Camaro convertible are just two of at least a half dozen convertibles debuting at the Show.
The performance and luxury category is also noteworthy this year for being a showcase for new entries into the segment, including Hyundai's continued push upward with the premiere of the 2012 Azera, as well as the U.S. debut of entirely new manufacturers, like the Mastretta MXT from Mexico. And, showing performance attributes are crossing traditional lines, the Fiat 500 Abarth demonstrates the further evolution of the once-overlooked compact category. A modified, 135-horsepower version of the recently reborn Fiat 500, the 500 Abarth, will join other "super" compact debuts including the Ford Fiesta ST and the Mazda3 SKYACTIV.
High-tech systems have become,
one of the most important features of the car itself. New technology to look for at the Show includes advanced applications of Bluetooth, radar sensors, embedded telephony and cloud computing. In use, these high-tech systems give drivers hands-free access to personal data, communications, audio entertainment, social networking and advanced safety measures previously unimaginable. New technology developments unveiled at the show are expected from Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Ford, Hyundai, Kia, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota, Volkswagen and others.
The automakers aren't the only exhibitors,

•••Tartikoff spent 11 years as head of entertainment programming for NBC.
•••
To consider all that Brandon Tartikoff accomplished as president of NBC Entertainment, it's important to remember how bad NBC was in 1981, when, at 31, Tartikoff took over. But in a few short years, after hits like/Imagespeople/BTLegacyAwardL108w.jpg Cheers, Hill Street Blues, The Cosby Show, Family Ties, Golden Girls and St. Elsewhere, NBC was not only on top of the ratings but did so with the creation of programs that were to this day among the best in TV history.
Part 02/ • About the Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Award Recipients.
BrandonTartikoff108w.jpg Tartikoff passed away in 1997, at the age of 48,
from Hodgkin's disease, which he had fought-unknown to all but a few close friends-since he was just out of college. The Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Awards began in 2004, and have become an honor that program executives and creators treasure.
•••Individuals are nominated for Award consideration with the oversight of NATPE's Executive Committee and the executive editorial staffs of Broadcasting & Cable, Multichannel News and Variety.
Broadcasting & Cable, Multichannel News, Variety and NBC Universal are proud sponsors of this prestigous event.

•••

/Imagescustomers/goldeng-LogoHepa108w.jpg• The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, ªHFPAº --
has selected actress Gia Mantegna, as Miss Golden Globe 2011 for The 68th Annual Golden Globe® Awards. HFPA President Philip Berk made the announcement at The First Party of the 2011 Golden Globe Award Season, hosted by the HFPA and InStyle.
••• Chosen by the HFPA, Miss and/or Mr. Golden Globe is traditionally the child of a well-known celebrity and assists during the Golden Globe Awards ceremony.
••• Previous Miss Golden Globe honorees include Laura Dern (daughter of Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern), Joely Fisher (daughter of Connie Stevens and Eddie Fisher), Melanie Griffith (daughter of Tippi Hedren) and last year's honoree Lorraine Nicholson (daughter of Jack Nicholson). Previous Mr. Golden Globes include John Clark Gable and Freddie Prinze, Jr.
• The Golden Globe Award is presented by --
the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) in recognition of excellence in film and television, domestic as well as foreign production. These prestigious Globes awards are one of the three most popular, widely acclaimed and most watched award shows on television.
••• This year's annual January event, the 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards was hosted by Ricky Gervais, the British comedian and creator of The Office and the ceremony was telecast live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.
• About the Hollywood Foreign Press Association --
••• The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is known worldwide for its glittering Golden Globe Awards ceremony held every January and its multi-million dollar donations to charity. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association had humble origins that stemmed solely from a group of journalists' desire to cover all aspects of the world of entertainment.
••• Today's organization has its roots in the early 1940s when Pearl Harbor had drawn America into World War II. Audiences, hungry for diversion, were seeking out films offering escape, inspiration and entertainment; and filmmakers such as Orson Welles, Preston Sturges, Darryl Zanuck and Michael Curtiz were working hard to fulfill the need.
••• Amid the turmoil of war and the difficulties with communications, a handful of Los Angeles-based overseas journalists banded together to share contacts, information and material. The idea was not a new one: previously, in 1928 the Hollywood Association of Foreign Correspondents (HAFCO) had been formed and, in 1935, the Foreign Press Society appeared. Both were short-lived.
• In 1943 the journalists, led by --
the correspondent for Britain's Daily Mail, formed the Hollywood Foreign Correspondents Association and conceived the motto "Unity Without Discrimination of Religion or Race." It was an uphill struggle at first as the film industry had not yet realized the importance of foreign markets. At first the members held informal gatherings in private homes. As the membership grew, HFPA meetings were held in larger quarters, with the association selecting the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel as the location for group functions.
••• The group's first special event was a luncheon in December 1947, at which a meritorious plaque was awarded to Harry M. Warner.
••• As representatives of the world press, the group's members felt it was incumbent upon them to give their audience their judgments as to Hollywood's finest productions. The organization's first awards presentation for distinguished achievements in the film industry took place in early 1944 with an informal ceremony at 20th Century Fox.
••• In 1945, the members of the association held a contest to find a design for a statuette that would best represent the overall aims of the organization. Marina Cisternas, president (1945-46) presented the idea for a golden globe encircled with a strip of motion picture film, and mounted on a pedestal.
In 1950 differing philosophies among members --
created a schism within the organization, resulting in a split into two separate groups -- The Hollywood Foreign Correspondents Association and the Foreign Press Association of Hollywood.
••• For a time, the two organizations existed side by side, with one group handing out Golden Globes while the other awarded Henriettas, named for their president, Henry Gris.
• The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, ªHFPAº --
•••  The separation ended in 1955 when the journalists reunited under the collective title "The Hollywood Foreign Press Association" with firm guidelines and requirements for membership.
••• During its early years the HFPA established itself with the studios by innovations such as its World Favorites awards, which it came up with by polling more than 900 newspapers, magazines and radio stations around the world. The group also came up with the idea of "bon voyage" interview lunches with actors and actresses who were leaving to make films in countries represented by the members.
••• In 1955 the Golden Globes began honoring achievements in television as well as in film.
• The HFPA is currently celebrating its 66th --
anniversary in Hollywood. Today, the Golden Globes recognize achievements in 25 categories; 14 in motion pictures and 11 in television. dick clark productions has produced the Golden Globes ceremony since 1983.
