OFCS member Enrique Buchichio debuts as a filmmaker

OFCS member Enrique Buchichio will be making his feature film debut as screenwriter and director with Leo’s Room, which will have its world premiere at the Zabaltegi section in the coming San Sebastian Film Festival.

The festival’s official site describes the film:

Leo, a young boy coming to terms with himself and finding his way in the world of sex, runs into Caro, a primary school friend he fancied when they were younger who’s now trying to ward off her own personal demons. This casual reencounter will affect their personal conflicts without either truly grasping the other’s problem. Selected for Films in Progress 15 (Toulouse 2009). Directorial debut.

The OFCS congratulates Buchichio on his debut.

the OFCS welcomes new member Paul Brenner

The OFCS is delighted to announce that Paul Brenner has been granted membership in the organization. Brenner’s reviews appear at Filmcritic.com.

Brenner says:

I have had a burning interest in cinema ever since I saw Jerry Lewis with a pith helmet and an elephant gun in Who’s Minding the Store? From that point on, my youth was misspent on watching everything from Won Ton Ton: The Dog Who Saved Hollywood to Weekend. My first film review was for F. for Fake and one thing led to another and I ended up receiving a Master’s degree in TV, Radio & Film from Northwestern University. Since that time, I have written for print publications such as The Motion Picture Guide, Magill’s Survey of Foreign Language Cinema, and The Encyclopedia of Film. Online publications have included Mediascreen.com, AOL’s Critics Choice, The All Movie Guide and Filmcritic.com. At one point, I even worked on the pre-production of an orangutan comedy in Hollywood USA. My critical hero is Manny Farber and my wish is to be as cool as Robert Mitchum and as sarcastic as Groucho Marx.

The OFCS welcomes Brenner as a member.

the OFCS welcomes new member Mike Bracken

The OFCS is delighted to announce that Mike Bracken has been granted membership in the organization. Bracken’s reviews appear at The Horror Geek.com.

Bracken says:

I’ve been an online film critic for over a decade now. I’ll watch and write about anything, but my area of expertise is horror cinema–from modern day slashers, Italian gore epics, zombie flicks, all the way back to the classics. I spent two seasons as The Horror Geek on Comedy Central’s pop culture game show Beat the Geeks and I currently run Thehorrorgeek.com. When not covering films online, I review movies for The Big O and Dukes Show on WJFK FM.

The OFCS welcomes Bracken as a member.

the OFCS welcomes new member Amber Wilkinson

The OFCS is delighted to announce that Amber Wilkinson has been granted membership in the organization. Wilkinson’s reviews appear at Eye for Film.

Wilkinson introduces herself:

I’m the co-founder and editorial director of Eye For Film. We’re based in Scotland and aim to produce quality online journalism that covers more than movies in the mainstream. I’m a big film festival goer and watch a lot of independent and foreign language cinema. I also watch a lot of short films – I believe they are a breeding ground not only of new talent but of fresh ideas which often go on to have an impact in bigger budget features. I’m a huge fan of Spanish language cinema and I have a weakness for sweet popcorn.

The OFCS welcomes Wilkinson as a member.
