Cannes: Ken Loach Wins His Second Palme d’Or for ‘I, Daniel Blake’

22 May 2016 10:29 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The final awards ceremony of the 69th Cannes Film Festival has concluded, with veteran British filmmaker Ken Loach winning the second Palme d’Or of his career for the impassioned protest drama “I, Daniel Blake.”

The film, chronicling the social-welfare battle fought by a struggling Newcastle carpenter, scored a strong emotional reaction from Cannes audiences when it unspooled early in the festival — though many critics were more reserved in their praise. This year’s jury, led by “Mad Max” director George Miller, evidently voted with their hearts, handing the 79-year-old Loach the festival’s top honor exactly 10 years after his Irish historical drama “The Wind That That Shakes the Barley” landed the prize.

Loach now joins an elite group of two-time Palme champs, including Michael Haneke, Francis Ford Coppola, Emir Kusturica, Bille August, Shohei Imamura, Alf Sjoberg and Belgian brothers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne — the latter duo among the »

'Wolf And Sheep', 'The Together Project' win at Directors' Fortnight

21 May 2016 3:46 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Together Project was directed by Solveig Anspach, who died last August.

Afghan fantasy drama Wolf And Sheep has picked up the Art Cinema Award at the 48th Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes.

Making Of… Wolf And Sheep

It marks the completion of a six-year journey with Cannes for Afghan director Shahrbanoo Sadat, who was 20 when selected as the youngest participant of the festival’s Cinefondation Residency, where she began to develop this debut in 2010.

Wolf And Sheep follows a group of Afghan shepherd boys and girls living in a remote village, where folklore helps explain the world’s mysteries.

Starring largely non-professional actors, Wolf And Sheep was shot in Tajikistan because it was too dangerous for the crew to shoot in Afghanistan.

The Denmark-France-Sweden-Afghanistan co-production is produced by Katja Adomeit and is being sold by Alpha Violet.

Although considered a non-competitive section, the film was selected for the sponsored prize over titles such as Pablo Larrain’s [link »

Cannes: ‘Wolf & Sheep’ Rounds up Directors’ Fortnight Prize

20 May 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Wolf & Sheep,” an Afghan fantasy drama, claimed the Art Cinema Award at the Directors’ Fortnight (aka Quinzaine des Realisateurs) section of the Cannes festival.

The award was announced on Friday evening at an event in Cannes. The Directors’ Fortnight section is essentially non-competitive, but a number of its commercial and cinema industry sponsors arrange prizes.

“Wolf,” which also goes by the title “The Story of an Afghan Community,” is a depiction of rural where everyone is a storyteller and children rule the hills as shepherds. It is directed by Shahrbanoo Sadat a woman screenwriter and director who was previously in the Directors’ Fortnight in 2011 with short film “Vice Versa One.”

“Wolf” also has Cannes connections. It was previously pitched at the Cannes Cinefondation Residency program in 2013, when Sadat was just 20. Production and finance came from Scandinavia and Afghanistan.

The film beat other contenders including favorites: “Neruda,” “Risk,” “Ma Vie de Courgette” and “Raman Raghav. »

Cannes: Directors’ Fortnight Unveils 2016 Lineup

18 April 2016 11:34 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — Cannes’ Directors’ Fortnight sidebar announced the selection for its 48th annual edition today, unveiling an impressive, if slightly smaller-than-usual lineup — 18 features in all — that suggests the renewed vigor and continuing ascendance of the parallel section under the auspices of artistic director Edouard Waintrop.

Compensating for a total absence of Italian films in official competition, the lineup will spotlight a trio of films from a multi-generational and multi-faceted range of Italo auteurs: Marco Bellocchio’s “Sweet Dreams,” Paolo Virzi’s “Like Crazy” and Claudio Giovannesi’s “Fiore.”

Sweet Dreams” will open the section, which runs from May 12 to 22, marking another coup for Waintrop after a strong 2015 edition: Bellocchio was widely expected to present his latest in Cannes’ official selection and might not have considered the Fortnight sidebar as an option before its major revamping three years ago.

“‘Sweet Dreams’ is film in which Marco Bellocchio shows how well he can trigger emotions. »

Cannes: who's in the running?

21 March 2016 2:39 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Screen rounds up the films from across the globe that could launch at Cannes…

With less than a month to go until the Cannes Film Festival announces its line-up at its annual Paris press conference on April 14, Screen looks at what could make it into Official Selection and the parallel sections of Directors’ Fortnight and Critics’ Week.

UK and Ireland

The UK could have one of its strongest Cannes for years with hot favourites for a competition slot including Andrea Arnold’s Shia Labeouf-starring Us road movie American Honey and Ken Loach’s gritty Northern England-set drama I, Daniel Blake. It would be Loach’s 12th time in competition.

Ben Wheatley is also reportedly gunning for an Official Selection slot for his 1970s Boston-set, gangland thriller Free Fire, potentially Out of Competition or in Midnight Screenings. He was last in Cannes with Sightseers in Directors’ Fortnight.

Other UK hopefuls include Stephen Frears’ Florence Foster Jenkins and Indian »
