Bloodlines: The Art and Life of Vincent Castiglia
Award winning Filmmaker / Author John Borowski's (H.H. Holmes: America's First Serial Killer) fifith feature documentary film, Bloodlines: The Art and Life of Vincent Castiglia, will be released in North America on November 13th. The film focuses on artist Castiglia's painful life of abuse, addiction, and recovery while also exploring the reasons why the world renowned artist paints exclusively in human blood.
Vincent Castiglia paints surreal images exclusively in human blood. He began doing so as form of self-healing following a troubled childhood and painful existence. From darkness, however, came light, and Castiglia's story is one of inspiration and hope, providing proof that art can heal and serve to inspire others.
Margaret Cho, who commissioned Vincent to paint her portrait in her blood, is interviewed in the film as well as celebrities Gregg Allman, Damien Echols, Kerry King and Gary Holt of the heavy metal band Slayer, record executive Michael Alago, and numerous others including filming in the studio and museum of legendary artist H.R. Giger, who designed the iconic creature for the Alien movies.
After a successful Kickstarter fundraising campaign, production of the film spanned from 2014 to 2018, filming on location in the United States: New York City, Los Angeles, Louisiana, Chicago, Oregon, and internationally: Singapore and Switzerland.

Denzel Washington Announced as 2019 AFI Life Achievement Award Honoree
DENZEL WASHINGTON TO RECEIVE
47TH AFI LIFE ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
America's Highest Honor for a Career in Film to Be Presented June 6, 2019
Tribute to Premiere on TNT and Encore on Turner Classic Movies
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, LOS ANGELES, CA, October 5, 2018 — The American Film Institute (AFI) Board of Trustees announced today that Denzel Washington will receive the 47th AFI Life Achievement Award, America's highest honor for a career in film. The award will be presented to Washington at a Gala Tribute on Thursday, June 6, 2019, in Los Angeles, CA. The AFI Life Achievement Award Tribute special will return for its seventh year with Turner Broadcasting to air on TNT, followed by encore presentations on sister network Turner Classic Movies (TCM). Audi and American Airlines return as Official Sponsors of the event.
"Denzel Washington is an American icon," said Sir Howard Stringer, Chair, AFI Board of Trustees. "As an actor, he stands tall as a heroic, stoic embodiment of the best in all of us, and he does so with heart, humanity and one of the brightest smiles to ever light up the screen. Equally formidable as director and producer, he is a creative force to be reckoned with — and one of the most vital, relevant artists working today. AFI is proud to present him with its 47th Life Achievement Award."
Actor, director and producer Denzel Washington is an iconic leading man whose career spans five decades — an esteemed repertoire ranging from screen to stage, in works defined by his towering presence as heroic everymen, troubling antiheroes and real-life figures with complicated, often controversial histories. His cinematic legacy includes powerhouse, Academy Award®-winning performances in GLORY (1989) and TRAINING DAY (2001), as well as celebrated roles in CRY FREEDOM (1987), MALCOLM X (1992), THE HURRICANE (1999), FLIGHT (2012) and ROMAN J. ISRAEL, ESQ. (2017), earning additional nominations for each. Washington has crafted compelling, unforgettable characters in recurring collaborations with master directors past and present, bringing stalwart grit and nuanced complexity to films essential to the American canon, such as Jonathan Demme's PHILADELPHIA (1993), Spike Lee's INSIDE MAN (2006) and Ridley Scott's AMERICAN GANGSTER (2007) — and to blockbuster, crowd-pleasing fare such as Edward Zwick's (AFI Class of 1975) CRIMSON TIDE (1995), Tony Scott's MAN ON FIRE (2004) and Antoine Fuqua's THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN (2016). A creative force behind the camera as well, Washington has helmed critically acclaimed films, including ANTWONE FISHER (2002) and THE GREAT DEBATERS (2007), in which he also stars. He won a 2010 Tony® for his performance in the play "Fences," and directed, produced and starred in the 2016 film adaptation that earned him Best Actor and Best Picture Oscar®nominations, as well as AFI AWARDS recognition.
More About Denzel Washington
The son of a Pentecostal minister and a beauty parlor owner, Denzel Washington was born in Mount Vernon, NY, on December 28, 1954. His parents' professions shaped Washington's ambition to begin acting, with their natural inclination toward storytelling and oration. After graduating from Fordham University with a BA in Journalism, Washington won a scholarship to the American Conservatory Theatre (ACT) in San Francisco, CA. Soon after leaving ACT, he appeared in off-Broadway productions and television movies before being cast in a starring role in the hit television series ST. ELSEWHERE.
Washington's filmography also includes MO' BETTER BLUES (1990), MISSISSIPPI MASALA (1991), THE PELICAN BRIEF (1993), COURAGE UNDER FIRE (1996), THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE (2004), THE EQUALIZER (2014) and THE EQUALIZER 2 (2018).
He is married to actor Pauletta Washington, with whom he has four children: John David Washington, Olivia Washington, Katia Washington and Malcolm Washington, who is an alumnus of the AFI Conservatory, Class of 2016.
About the AFI Life Achievement Award
The highest honor given for a career in film, the AFI Life Achievement Award was established by the AFI Board of Trustees in 1973. It is presented to a single honoree each year based on the following criteria as mandated through a resolution passed by the AFI Board of Trustees:
"The recipient should be one whose talent has in a fundamental way advanced the film art; whose accomplishment has been acknowledged by scholars, critics, professional peers and the general public; and whose work has stood the test of time."

FANDANGONOW HOSTS EXCLUSIVE ANT-MAN AND THE WASP STAN LEE CAMEO OUTTAKE CLIP
To help celebrate the film’s digital debut on October 2, Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis will host a live Q&A with “Ant-Man and the Wasp” director Peyton Reed on Fandango’s Twitter page on Tuesday at 10 am PT. Please submit your questions on Fandango’s Twitter and follow the chat here.
FANDANGO’S STREAMING SERVICE, FANDANGONOW, BRINGS TO LIFE TOP 25 ZOMBIE MOVIES, RANKED BY ROTTEN TOMATOES’ TOMATOMETER SCORES, TO CELEBRATE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF “NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD”
FANDANGO’S STREAMING SERVICE, FANDANGONOW, BRINGS TO LIFE TOP 25 ZOMBIE MOVIES, RANKED BY ROTTEN TOMATOES’ TOMATOMETER SCORES, TO CELEBRATE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF “NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD”
LOS ANGELES (October 1, 2018) – Today marks the 50th anniversary of “Night of the Living Dead,” the granddaddy of the modern-day zombie movies. To celebrate the occasion, Fandango’s fast-growing on-demand video streaming service, FandangoNOW, is bringing to life the 25 “freshest” zombie movies in a list of classics curated by movie review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes and based on those movies’ Tomatometer scores. (A movie gets a “Fresh” designation when at least 60% of its critic reviews are positive, and the original “Living Dead” retains its crown as the “freshest” film of the zombie pack.)
“Zombies owe their popularity today to a little low-budget film from Pittsburgh released 50 years ago today, and ‘Night of the Living Dead’ has lost none of its power to shock, stun and terrify,” says Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis. “With its stark, in-your-face black-and-white imagery of the dead coming back to flesh-eating life, director George Romero’s film made it clear to 1968 audiences that visceral horror no longer took the shape of Gothic frights like werewolves and vampires. It now looks just like your friends and neighbors, and there is no escape. To celebrate the ‘Dead’s 50th-anniversary FandangoNOW is hosting the top 25 zombie movies that you can view at home today, starting of course with the film that started it all.”
To celebrate the anniversary today only, fans can rent any (or all) of the zombie movies on the FandangoNOW list at a discounted rate, with $1.00 off the regular low price when using the promo code LIVINGDEAD50 at checkout.
FandangoNOW has the most comprehensive selection of films in 4K Ultra HD from all the major studios and content providers. The fast-growing service’s robust catalog is available on more than 200 million devices, offering 70,000 new release and catalog movies, next-day TV shows, and an extensive library of 4K and HDR titles to buy or rent -- no subscription required. The streaming service curates entertainment options for every occasion and provides Tomatometer scores to help consumers with their viewing decisions.
