Scherfig, whose beguiling romantic comedy Italian for Beginners (2000) became the most commercially successful of all Dogme films, is at the Wisconsin Film Festival with her new film Wilbur Wants to Kill Himself.

Ryan Eslinger, recently nominated for the “Someone to Watch” Award at the 2004 IFP Independent Spirit Awards, wrote, directed (and edited, produced, and scored) his debut feature Madness and Genius which he has been working on since age 13. Madness and Genius won the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Feature Film Prize in Science and Technology at the Hamptons Film Festival and was featured at the 2004 Slamdance film festival. Face is the debut feature for writer/ director Bertha Bay-Sa Pan. Born in New Jersey and raised in Taiwan, Pan received MFA in Film from Columbia University. Her short film Face (from which the feature is adapted) won numerous awards including the Director’s Guild Award for “Best Asian American Student Filmmaker,” People’s Choice Award at Memphis Black Writers Conference and Southern Film Festival, and Polo Ralph Lauren Award for Best Screenplay.
