Berlinale director: no plans for German Mip

27 January 2015 2:55 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Interview with Berlinale festival director Dieter Kosslick.

The Berlinale’s greater emphasis on television this year should not be interpreted as the first step towards a German Mip, according to festival director Dieter Kosslick.

In an exclusive interview with ScreenDaily, Kosslick said: ¨We don’t want to make a Mip TV or Mipcom, that’s as sure as day follows night and anything more would overstretch us.¨

He pointed out that that the Berlinale had had successful screenings of quality TV in the past with such productions as Dominik Graf’s Im Namen des Verbrechens, Jane Campion’s Top Of The Lake and Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s Berlin Alexanderplatz.

“We have now been working for the past two years on this programme which is composed of two parts: a series of discussions on new trends at the Efm and two days of drama series integrated into the festival programme and shown at Haus der Berliner [link=tt »

Alessandro Nivola On ‘Selma’, ‘Violent Year’ And Bradley Cooper: Conversations With Jeremy Gerard

26 January 2015 1:46 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: It’s tempting to say that Alessandro Nivola lives a charmed life, and that might be true if he weren’t working so hard. He’s Zelig in plain sight: At this moment in time you can see him in Selma as Justice Department civil rights lawyer John Doar, who would become the lead prosecutor in the government’s case against the murders of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner. And you can see him on the other side of the mirror, as a mobbed-up oil distributor and bete noir of Oscar Isaacs in A Most Violent Year. He played another nemesis, FBI agent Anthony Amado, on the trail of Bradley Cooper in American Hustle. And he’s still batting it around with Cooper, but now on Broadway, where he plays Frederick Treves, the humanistic doctor who rescues Cooper’s John Merrick ­­– Aka the Elephant Man – from life in a freak show booth. »

‘Rush’, ‘The Audience’ Author Peter Morgan On Truth In Storytelling: Conversations With Jeremy Gerard

23 January 2015 8:57 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Who owns history? In the run-up to the Oscars, the critiques playing out in the press over the “accuracy” of events portrayed in Selma, American Sniper and The Imitation Game have never had a more powerful purchase on the public conversation.

Few contemporary writers have tangled with the issue as consistently —  and entertainingly — as two-time Oscar nominee Peter Morgan. He might recreate the days-long encounter between a British interlocutor and a paranoid U.S. President, as he did first onstage and then in film with Frost/Nixon. Slice through the emotional tensions in a legendary Formula One racing rivalry, as he did in Rush. Or imagine the private conversations between the Queen of England and a succession of Prime Ministers, as he does in The Audience, the hit West End play starring Helen Mirren that is in rehearsal for its upcoming Broadway bow.

Golden Globes Takes Serious Turn to Send Message on Creative Freedom

14 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Golden Globes are usually known for drunken celebrity hijinks, but the 72nd telecast Jan. 11 at the Beverly Hilton took a more serious turn. Against the backdrop of grim news like the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attacks in Paris, the Sony hack and rape allegations against Bill Cosby, the Globes allowed Hollywood the chance to offer a collective hug to the TV-viewing audience. Even if the stars looked glamorous while chugging champagne on the red carpet, the onstage testimonials and mood inside the ballroom weren’t purely celebratory. Instead, the Globes sounded more like a political rally.

“The freedom of artistic expression … is a beacon across the globe,” said Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. president Theo Kingma. “We stand united everywhere, from North Korea to Paris.”

"That's the insanity of the world, isn't it?" Rosamund Pike told Et. "The extremities of life -- it all hurdles at us. That's why we feel privileged and we have to enjoy every moment of it."
