Miles From Home to debut at 2008 Cannes Film Festival

MUMBAI: Miles from Home, a film, produced by writer/director, Ty Hodges, cinematographer/editor Todd Segal, Meagan
Good and Marlon Ollivierre, will make its international debut at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival.

The film has been screened at festivals across
the US. Miles From Home has received awards from the 2006 International Black Film Festival, 2006 Washington D.C. Independent Film Festiva), San Francisco Film Festival and the
Film Life and HBO American Film Festival.


Miles from Home is a tale of lost innocence. Miles Conway, (Ty Hodges), 17, is forced to fend for himself after his mother‘s drug addiction causes the family to lose everything they own. Abandoned also by his older brother, Miles is introduced to a group of teenage prostitutes and is seduced into a world of sex, money, and drugs. Miles is torn between his two worlds after he meets Natasha Freeman, (Meagan Good), a 19 year-old free-spirited college student who shows Miles there‘s still beauty to this world despite one‘s circumstances. Miles finds out that he has contracted HIV and starts to confront his inner demons and reevaluates the meaning of his life.


The film has recently been acquired by FarCor Studios, which is based in Los Angeles and run by producer Ralph Farquhar and his business partner Dwayne Corbitt. Farquhar says, "Miles from Home is a captivating Arthouse film that speaks to audiences of all age groups. It has a unique voice and touches on important and unspoken realities of today‘s generation".


The studio will oversee the final production stages of the film to include the development of the soundtrack, re-shoots, editing, distribution and marketing. FarCor Studios will debut the completed version of the film to invited international buyers and press on 21 May at the Palais Theatre J.

Partition: 1947 -- Attempt to create nostalgia

Suddenly, the flavour of the season as far as filmmaking goes, seems to be India and its history, distant as well as recent. Some films, like Indu Sarkar (the recent film about the emergency era), are made to please the people in high places instead of the moviegoer while the latest one, Partition...

Toilet -- Ek Prem Katha may spring a surprise

Unlikely as it may seem, Akshay Kumar’s Toilet Ek Prem Katha may be on its way to spring a surprise at the box office. In fact, the process started from day two after its release as the film’s collections took huge jump on Saturday followed by another leap on Sunday.

Toilet: Ek Prem Katha ... Part fun, part sermon

With little choice of genres left for films after themes like family social, horror and mythology were taken away by TV channels, filmmakers have to find variations in what they are left with: romance, action and comedy.

Film audience rues being taken for granted: stars & others' poor show this week

*What Shah Rukh Khan and director Imtiaz Ali have done with Jab Harry Met Sejal can be called a patch-up job. The distributors may lose money but what Shah Rukh Khan has lost in this one weekend is his 25 years of stardom and goodwill.

Jab Harry Met Sejal......they go bankrupt -- creatively

Jab Harry Met Sejal is a road movie where romance happens on the way. There have been some films on this theme like Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, and Jab We Met in the romantic- fun category while Dhanak was a beautiful film about two kids.

Word of mouth may help family entertainer

Mubarakan came as a full family entertainer after a long gap, a gap when fillers and mediocre films reigned. However, the film’s opening day collections were poor to put it plainly. To a certain extent, the promotion and the presentation of the film were not quite attractive.
