Rachel Weisz prefers independent films.

The screen beauty's latest film 'The Deep Blue Sea' may have hardly been publicised and missed out on awards season - bar a Golden Globe nomination for Rachel - but the actress claims commercial films aren't as ''interesting'' as small budget more experimental features.

She explained: ''Some of the material I'm attracted to is not... It's just not commercial. Which means it's really f**king interesting, you know? It's off-centre. It doesn't fit a genre. I'm not trying to sound like I'm unaware. I understand that it's a business to some extent.

''But I also think that with independent film, the stakes are not that high. There are things that as big-business-slash-small-art. This cocktail would have been low-business-slash-high-art. It's about creativity rather than merchandising.''

Terence Davies-directed 'The Deep Blue Sea' - which also stars Tom Hiddleston - tells the story about the wife of a judge who engages in an affair with a former RAF pilot and was released in the US late last year after an original 2011 release.

Rachel remains hopeful the film's new publicity will encourage more people to go see the drama and give it the boost it deserves.

She said: ''My main hope is that people will get to see the film. I'm surprised that anyone remembers it. Because it came out on very few screens and had no publicity. Independent film needs that huge boost. Maybe people will see it now. That's the hope.''

Up and coming brilliant Filmmaker Antonio Racciano (2013) has been making an impressive showing throughout the Indy circuit. We had the good fortune to meet at the Toronto Film Festival in 2012 when he was making his film debut as an actor in Ben Affleck's Argo, playing a small cameo role as "The Waiter", in the scene at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. I had the good fortune to sit down with Antonio for an impromptu interview. Here is a transcript of our fascinating interview. Me: How are you enjoying Toronto? Antonio Racciano: I love it, I grew up not too far from here in Buffalo. Me: Right across Peace Bridge. Antonio: Yes, that's right. My family and I would come to Toronto quite frequently and we always had a great time. It's a beautiful city. Me: What have you been working on? Antonio: Well, I'm here in support of Ben Affleck and his movie Argo, in which I make a cameo appearance. Me: I saw it, you did a great job. How fun... Antonio: Thank you, I had a good time doing it. Me: I couldn't help but notice that you didn't have any lines in the film. Antonio: Yes, I didn't want any.. Me: Why? Antonio: ..I just felt like this is Ben's movie and I just wanted to make a cameo appearance for fun...be on the set and have a good time...it was an extraordinary experience working that day, everyone was there, Alan Arkin, John Goodman, Ben Affleck even Jennifer Garner was there that day, hanging out, watching. It was alot of fun. Me: Are you working on a new film? Antonio: Yes I have been working on a new film. It's called "Their Unique Journey Inside Hollywood". Me: What's it about? Antonio: It's an in depth look into how friends of mine have made a success in Hollywood...Everyone who is successful has had to follow a unique path to make it in Hollywood. It's not like being a Doctor. You know after you finish Med School, you will be a doctor but in the entertainment industry, there is no such true path to success. Me: Sounds like an interesting movie, I can't wait to see it. Who's in it? Antonio: Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Spike Lee, Vince Vaughn...and the list goes on. Me: When's it coming out? Antonio: we are in the process of editing in post at the moment. We have a release date set for January 2013. We'll see what happens. Me: Well thank you for taking some time to sit down with me. Antonio: It was my pleasure.. Well that was my intereview with the very talented Antonio Racciano, here in beautiful Toronto at the film festival.
