Five-year-old FilmNation Entertainment — a key player in the independent sales-financing-producing world — is officially part of the American Film Market for the first time.
FilmNation will be selling international markets for a quartet of projects — Woody Allen’s “Magic in the Moonlight”; Alejandro Amenabar’s “Regression,” which the Weinstein Co. has bought; Bill Condon’s Sherlock Holmes tale “A Slight Trick of the Mind,” starring Ian McKellen; and Anton Corbijn’s “Life,” starring Dane DeHaan and Robert Pattinson.
In the past Afm, FilmNation execs still conducted meetings at Afm as it saw steady growth while acting as a producer, financier and sales agent. For CEO Glen Basner, it makes sense to formally be at Afm this November as the major studios continue to cede mid-budget and specialty films to the indie sector. Buyers, he said, have grown more discerning.

Our journey through the half-remembered, underappreciated films of the 1990s continues. Here, we look to 1997...
Dominated by the box office behemoth that was James Cameron's Titanic, 1997 was a year of high drama and outlandish special effects. The Lost World: Jurassic Park brought with it a new batch of genetically revived dinosaurs, George Lucas dug his original Star Wars trilogy out of the cupboard and added new (controversial) computer-generated sequences, while Nicolas Cage and John Travolta did impressions of one another and fired guns in John Woo's delirious action movie, Face/Off.
It was a varied year for movies, for sure, particularly by 21st century standards; it's difficult to imagine a British feel-good comedy about amateur male strippers (The Full Monty) getting into the year's 10 highest grossing films these days. But among all those winners, there had to be some »
