American Short Films, to be released this Monday (June 5th), will also feature short films by George Lucas, Alexander Payne, Tim Burton, Gus van Sant, Andy Warhol and more. Note: a number of online vendors - including Amazon.co.uk, where I got mine from - list this disc as being PAL (European standard), but it's in fact NTSC, Region 0. So, North Americans, go nuts!
Oh, and a film page has been created, now, for Feelings, which you can view here (or from the main page).

That's right! According to Fortissimo Films' official website (fortissimo.nl), they're going to be backing Todd Solondz's next film, which has yet to be titled. Solondz is quoted as saying that it's, "a kind of sequel to - or riff on - Happiness and, to some extent, Welcome To the Dollhouse. Many of the characters from these movies unexpectedly beckoned to me, and so I have explored new ways of developing and enlarging their stories, with the intent to recast them from a fresh perspective."
The film is being produced by Ted Hope (who previously produced Happiness and Storytelling), Mike Ryan and Derrick Tseng (who both produced Palindromes) and executive produced by Michael J. Werner and Wouter Barendrecht.

Well, less and less press write-ups, websites, etc. on the documentary film This Film Is Not Yet Rated (see News from 2/28/06) have been mentioning Todd Solondz's involvment lately, and some online sites and articles (including the IMDB), have actually been removing his name. So, I'm wondering, is he in this thing or what?
The answer is: what. I contacted Todd Solondz directly, and he says he's not in it. So, that clears that up. Sorry for misinforming, but at least we got to the bottom of it. And, hey, the movie still might be worth checking out anyway. 8-)
