Chinese film-maker’s short The Administration Of Glory was in competition at Cannes in 2014

Chinese film-maker and artist Ran Huang has received the Katrin Cartlidge Foundation Bursary from this year’s award curator, Us actor-director Danny Houston, at the Sarajevo Film Festival.

“When I saw Ran’s films I knew I was watching the work of a visionary: he makes me see the world differently and I find that very exciting,” said Houston.

“Sarajevo Film Festival is all about international communication through Art and Ran is investigating the human condition.”

Ran Huang said he was delighted at the possibilities offered by the Bursary: “As an artist you work largely on your own but in film I really enjoy the openness to others’ ideas.

“I appreciate this opportunity to expand my vision, to explore a new language, a new community and a new way to connect with people.”

Huang came to film from fine art, and his conceptual

Pluto Film signs child abuse drama
Verfehlung is the German sales agent’s first acquisition at the Efm.

Fledgling German sales agent Pluto Film has made its first acquisition at the Efm by acquiring Gerd Schneider’s highly topically feature debut Verfehlung (The Culpable) which premiered at last month’s Max Ophüls Prize Film Festival in Saarbrücken.

Schneider’s screenplay centres on the Catholic prison chaplain Jakob Völz (played by Sebastian Blomberg) faced with a painful dilemma - an acid test for his faith and understanding of his calling as a priest - when his best friend and colleague Dominik Bertram (Kai Schumann) is remanded in custody under suspicion of sexual abuse.

The choice of subject matter for Schneider’s debut is particularly apposite given that he had originally studied Catholic Theology and was then preparing to enter the priesthood before he changed track to study at the Film Academy in Ludwigsburg.

In 2006, Schneider received the Katrin Cartlidge Foundation Award at the Sarajevo

Alan Moore's 'From Hell' to Become FX Event Series

Alan Moore's 'From Hell' to Become FX Event Series
FX is moving forward with a new event series based on the Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell graphic novel From Hell, which was previously adapted into a 2001 feature film starring Johnny Depp, Heather Graham and Robbie Coltrane. Allen Hughes and Albert Hughes, who directed the feature, will not be involved in the series.

The original graphic novel told the tale of legendary London serial killer Jack the Ripper, with the killer himself as the main character, chronicling the events leading up to the Whitechapel killings and the ensuing cover-up.

Don Murphy (Transformers: Age of Extinction), who produced the 2001 film, is executive producing the event series, alongside his Angry Films partner Susan Montford. He had always envisioned the 572-page graphic novel as a TV series, which forced significant structural changes in the movie adaptation, which only took in $74 million worldwide, opening just one month after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Given the new popularity of event series' lately,

Which is the greatest British film in history? No one seems to be in agreement

Best British movies of all time? (Image: a young Michael Caine in 'Get Carter') Ten years ago, Get Carter, starring Michael Caine as a dangerous-looking London gangster (see photo above), was selected as the United Kingdom's very best movie of all time according to 25 British film critics polled by Total Film magazine. To say that Mike Hodges' 1971 thriller was a surprising choice would be an understatement. I mean, not a David Lean epic or an early Alfred Hitchcock thriller? What a difference ten years make. On Total Film's 2014 list, published last May, Get Carter was no. 44 among the magazine's Top 50 best British movies of all time. How could that be? Well, first of all, people would be very naive if they took such lists seriously, whether we're talking Total Film, the British Film Institute, or, to keep things British, Sight & Sound magazine. Second, whereas Total Film's 2004 list was the result of a 25-critic consensus,

Ken Loach Calls For Cultural Boycott Of Israel, Labels U.S. A “Bully”: Reports
The Sarajevo Film Festival, which concludes Saturday, has been the scene of yet another hard stance from a filmmaker regarding the conflict in Gaza. Late Thursday, outspoken British director Ken Loach gave a speech at the Katrin Cartlidge Foundation Award Ceremony honoring Palestinian directors Abdel Salam Shehadeh and Ashraf Mashharawi, and called for an “absolute boycott of all the cultural happenings supported by the Israeli state.” According to Screen Daily, he added, “Israel must become a pariah state.” Loach further referred to the U.S., saying, “My country, to its shame, follows the bully that is the United States. But we are not powerless. We can act together.”

Ken Loach calls for Israel boycott
Honouring two Palestinian filmmakers at the Sarajevo Film Festival, British director Ken Loach branded the Us as a “bully” and said cultural happenings supported by the Israeli state should be boycotted.

British filmmaker Ken Loach has called for the “boycott of all the cultural happenings supported by the Israeli state” at an awards ceremony honouring two Palestinian directors.

The director of Kes and The Wind That Shakes The Barley gave an impassioned speech at the Sarajevo Film Festival (Aug 15-23) last night, where he presented the Katrin Cartlidge Foundation Award to Palestinian directors Abdel Salam Shehadeh and Ashraf Mashharawi.

Loach branded the directors as “probably two of the greatest filmmakers in the world today, because they are making films in Gaza.”

Stirring memories of Sarajevo’s four-year siege from 1992-96, Loach said: “I know the people here will know the struggle and bravery you need when you are under siege, and you feel

Sarajevo Film Festival Was Born in Wartime, Now a Thriving Marketplace

Sarajevo Film Festival Was Born in Wartime, Now a Thriving Marketplace
Earlier this summer, Mirsad “Miro” Purivatra, director of the Sarajevo Film Festival, got a phone call from the new head of Ukraine’s Odessa Film Festival, who wanted to know how to stage such an event in the middle of a civil war.

Purivatra is, unfortunately, an expert in such matters. He launched the Sarajevo fest in 1995, toward the end of a four-year siege by troops from Bosnian Serbia, with snipers and artillery positions in the hills overlooking the city.

One of the buildings destroyed was city hall, which housed the national library. Purivatra recalls the ashes of books — including what had been rare manuscripts — drifting through his window.

“It was one of the saddest moments in my life,” he says. “How could someone … destroy such heritage, something of such cultural value, everything that a nation, a civilization has?”

As an act of defiance, and an affirmation of the redemptive power of culture,

Blu-ray Review: Criterion Assembles Great Package For Landmark ‘Breaking the Waves’

It’s hard to overstate the shock waves that Lars Von Trier’s “Breaking the Waves” made when it was released in 1996. It’s not as if Lvt was a completely unknown commodity but this was a new level for the filmmaker in the way he both played with his form and embraced larger-than-life imagery. “Breaking the Waves” was both grounded in classic themes and felt like the coming-out party for Dogme, the movement founded by Lvt that embraced natural filmmaking techniques like handheld cameras and sunlight.

And yet it was also So theatrical with its melodramatic undertones that felt like Shakespeare and the flourishes that would come to define Von Trier as one of our most interesting filmmakers. He is one of the few who can go from a natural, human-driven moment to something so precisely artistic and auteur-driven and make them feel like they belong in the same piece.

New on Video: ‘Breaking the Waves’

Breaking the Waves

Written by Lars von Trier and Peter Asmussen

Directed by Lars von Trier

Denmark, 1996

Director Lars von Trier is nothing if not creative. From films like Epidemic in 1987 and Europa in 1991, to last year’s two-part Nymphomaniac, he has managed to bring a continually imaginative photographic and narrative formula to nearly all of his films, the best of which ultimately end up masterpieces of contemporary international cinema. It was arguably his 1996 feature, Breaking the Waves, that first, and most dramatically, catapulted him to the front ranks of modern-day global filmmaking, particularly within the arthouse arena and festival circuit, and understandably so. This affecting film is a powerful work that delves deeply into often unspoken and unconventional recesses of faith and love. Its themes are profound, its performances staggering throughout, and its visual palette and filmic technique are replete with saturated hues, vigorous camera work, and an unabashed intimacy.

'Breaking the Waves' (Criterion Collection) Blu-ray Review

Recently Lars von Trier has made headlines for his inappropriate comments and the sexual and violent nature of such films as Antichrist and now Nymphomaniac, but what isn't mentioned as often is some of his earlier work, films such as Europa, Dancer in the Dark and, of course, Breaking the Waves, which has come to Criterion Blu-ray in an impressive package, though there are some notes to be made. To begin, if you haven't seen Breaking the Waves you're in for a fascinating feature that can be interpreted a myriad of ways and argued for days without resolution. I've seen people refer to it as the ultimate religious film as it looks at a conflict of beliefs, one preaching the fear of God and the other dedicated to the love of God. At the center of this is Bess (Emily Watson) a devote believer in God and a character that

Blu-ray, DVD Release: Breaking the Waves

  • Disc Dish
Blu-ray & DVD Release Date: April 15, 2014

Price: Blu-ray/DVD Combo $39.95

Studio: Criterion

Emily Watson stars in Breaking the Waves.

Lars von Trier (Antichrist) became an international sensation with the 1996 drama Breaking the Waves, a galvanizing realist fable about sex and spiritual transcendence.

Emily Watson (War Horse) stuns, in an Oscar-nominated performance, as Bess, a simple, pious newlywed in a tiny Scottish village who gives herself up to a shocking form of martyrdom after her husband (Stellan Skarsgård, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) is paralyzed in an oil-rig accident.

At once brazen and tender, profane and pure, Breaking the Waves is an acclaimed examination of the expansiveness of faith and of its limits.

Criterion’s Blu-ray/DVD Combo pack of the film contains the following features:

• New 4K digital restoration, with 5.1 surround DTS-hd Master Audio soundtrack on the Blu-ray

• Selected-scene audio commentary featuring director Lars von Trier, editor Anders Refn, and

How we made Naked

'We spent weeks in that big house entirely in character – just being really horrible to each other'

Mike Leigh, director

Naked was my big international breakthrough. I'd never had a film in Cannes before – and in 1993, I won best director and David Thewlis took best actor for his extraordinary performance as Johnny. At first, though, the film was called Untitled '92. I was starting to anticipate the millennium: it was obvious it was going to be a big deal, but I didn't know how to treat the subject. I could have made a science-fiction film. But I realised the character of Johnny – a frustrated, idealist drifter who's hacked off with the world – would be a very interesting vehicle for millennial preoccupations.

We prepared for the film in an old office block in Marylebone, London. David was living in Soho, endlessly reading Nostradamus and all the other things Johnny was into.

Sarajevo Film Festival Documentary Competition Aug 16-24

  • Sydney's Buzz
Last year and again this year we are invited to attend the Sarajevo Film Festival by Asja Makarević, Project Manager for Sarajevo Talent Campus. If you are going, look for Peter Belsito there!

Sarajevo Film Festival (August 16-24, 2013), now in its 19th year, is an international film festival with special focus on the region of Southeast Europe, it provides high quality programming, a strong industry segment, an educational platform for young filmmakers, the presence of numerous representatives of film industry, film authors and media representatives from all over the world, as well as over 100,000 visitors, thus confirming the festival's status, renowned and recognized by film professionals as well as by its audience.

It serves as a catalyst for cooperation within the region, and establishes connections with partners from all over the world. It also represents a platform for development of film business in Bosnia and Herzegovina and in the region, as well as setting new standards of festival organization and film presentation. While Karlovy Vary Film Festival has the Best of the East which gives a good view of finished films from Eastern Europe and is especially kind to journalists around the world, Sarajevo simultaneously hosts Cinelink, a very pro-active co-production market and workshop and Talent Campus which is a part of the Berlinale. This general networking of the world film industry is even more interesting because of its location in the city of Sarajevo itself. After the 4 year long siege of Sarajevo, it was founded as a means to recreate civil society of the City in 1995.

American actor/activist Danny Glover will curate and present the award for this year's Katrin Cartlidge Foundation Award to a new cinematic voice whose work embodies Katrin Cartlidge’s “integrity of spirit and commitment to independent film”. Cartlidge, who died in 2002, was a British actress best known for her work with Mike Leigh and whose last role in the Bosnian filmmaker Danis Tanović’s No Man’s Land. Over the past nine years the Foundation has appointed a curator, selected from Cartlidge’s friends and colleagues, who in turn chooses a recipient for the annual award, a cash bursary, which is announced at a special red carpet gala at the Festival.

This year, all the selections of the Sff Competition Programme will present a total of 50 films. This brings the best of regional cinema and follows the Sarajevo Film Festival strategy of discovering new talents, approaches and tendencies rooted in the world cinema today.

For the final line-up of the Competition Program, programmers and the Sarajevo Film Festival team saw 750 films from the region, including 200 feature films, 150 documentaries and 400 short and animated films. This year's selection, but also the general interest in our Competition selections, encourages the Sarajevo Film Festival in its determination to continue working on strengthening regional film production, promotion and film distribution. This is even more strongly emphasized by the fact that this year, in its three Competition selections, the Festival brings 14 world premieres, 7 international and 19 regional ones.
