22 August 2015 6:27 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

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.”

Pluto Film signs child abuse drama

6 February 2015 10:00 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

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.

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