Berlinale director: no plans for German Mip

1 hour ago | 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 »

After scoring the world premiere of Wes Anderson’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” 2015’s most Oscar-nominated film bar “Birdman,” The Berlin Film Festival suddenly seems to have more clout and sway than usual. The festival already has a tremendous line-up that includes anticipated new films by Terrence Malick, Werner Herzog, Anton Corbijn, Jafar Panahi and more. Berlin announced the completion of their line-up today and there’s definitely a few more cherries to top it all off.

Director Wim Wenders Lands Third Oscar Nom

16 January 2015 7:25 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

German director Wim Wenders received his third Oscar nomination Thursday morning for The Salt of the Earth, a documentary about the life and career of Brazilian photographer Sebastiao Salgado, which he co-directed with Juliano Ribeiro Salgado, Sebastiao’s son. Wenders had become a fan of Sebastiao’s work after discovering some images in a gallery, which led him to pursue the documentary. It won the Un Certain Regard Special Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, where it premiered.

Wenders’ first Oscar nomination was for Buena Vista Social Club (1999), a documentary about Cuban musicians gathered together by American music producer and guitarist Ry Cooder after he traveled to Havana. The musicians recorded an album under the name of the Buena Vista Social Club and toured in Amsterdam and New York City. The film won best documentary from the National Board of Review and also landed three BAFTA nominations. »

Set in the French provinces, “La Famille Belier,” the only truly popular movie competing for best film, is a dramedy centering on a teenager »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #18. Benoit Jacquot’s Journal d’une femme de chambre

9 January 2015 6:30 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Journal d’une femme de chambre

Director: Benoit Jacquot // Writers: Benoit Jacquot, Helene Zimmer

French auteur Benoit Jacquot tends to get overlooked, though his recent international success with Berlin premiered Farewell, My Queen (2012) seems to have boosted his status, even though he’s been making excellent films since the 1970s and used to serve as Assistant Director to Margeurite Duras (India Song; Nathalie Granger). He’s worked several times with Isabelle Huppert (The School of Flesh; Keep It Quiet; False Servant; Villa Amalia) and Isild Le Besco (A Tout de Suite; Deep in the Woods), and generally tends to favor female perspectives. His latest, 3 Hearts, competed in Venice and starred Catherine Deneuve, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and Chiara Mastroianni. We’re thrilled to see he’s following in the footsteps of Jean Renoir and Luis Bunuel with an update of Octave Mirabeau’s Diary of a Chambermaid, reuniting him with the exciting Lea Seydoux, »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #76. Wim Wenders’ Every Thing Will Be Fine

6 January 2015 7:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Every Thing Will Be Fine

Director: Wim Wenders // Writers: Bjorn Olaf Johannssen

New German Wave auteur Wim Wenders has lately been focusing on documentaries, both 2011’s Pina and 2013’s The Salt of the Earth visually resplendent explorations of their subject matters, providing the filmmaker with some of his most worthwhile titles in years. Wenders’ last feature was the poorly received Palermo Shooting in 2008 and he hasn’t had a universally celebrated fiction film in quite some time. Though sharing the same title as a 2010 Cristoffer Boe film, Wenders is again revisiting 3D (which he utilized for Pina) and an intriguing cast that consists of Charlotte Gainsbourg and Rachel McAdams promises to be an energetic new direction for Wenders, described as a family drama about a man who accidentally hits and kills a child while driving aimlessly around the outskirts of town after a trivial domestic quarrel.
