Flanders NeXT: Family film 'Cloudboy' wins Works In Progress award

  • ScreenDaily
New Europe Film Sales is representing the Bel-Swe-Nor-nl co-production.

Cloudboy has won the Works In Progress award - which comes with an $11,000 (€10,000) prize - at Flanders Image’s inaugural NeXT event. The story is about a Belgian boy who connects to his Swedish mother’s Sami roots during a summer trip to Lapland.

An international industry jury said, “We really want to see the special world that director Meikeminne Clinckspoor has created. We thought producer Katleen Goossens was very well prepared with her presentation, and both she and Meikeminne also told us about the heart of the story not just the plot. The story is both original and universal and we think it will appeal to wide audiences.”

Flanders Image had invited invited 13 projects in post-production – all backed by the Flanders Audiovisual fund — to pitch to the international industry in attendance.

The 13 projects in detail:

Montreal Film Review: ‘The Verdict’

A serious flaw in Belgium’s justice system is illustrated in “The Verdict,” an accomplished drama from veteran local multihyphenate Jan Verheyen. This tale of a man’s horrific loss of family, the legal glitch that lets the killer go scot-free, and a subsequent revenge-murder trial turns into a talky courtroom affair fairly early on, but it’s still a compelling one. While some theatrical sales around Europe are likely, farther afield the pic could be more widely seen in remake form. It opens on home turf Oct. 9.

Luc Segers (Koen De Bouw, also headlining at Montreal in comedy “Brasserie Romantique”) is a success by any standard; he’s being groomed as successor to the CEO of the company he’s worked for since college, and he has a nice home, a nicer wife, Ella (Joke Devynck), and a happy young daughter (Nell Cattrysse). But all this is shattered when

Erik Van Looy's The Alzheimer Case Gets A Sequel With Dossier K

In 2003 Belgian director Erik Van Looy did something very unusual.  He took on Hollywood on Hollywood's own terms and came away a clear winner.  Sure, the Hollywood Van Looy was living in was arguably more the 1970s version than that of the 2000's but still ... when accepted wisdom is that you leave the high end thrillers to the well funded Hollywood machine and focus on smaller art film ... well, you know.  But Van Looy did exactly the opposite of what prevailing wisdom would suggest a smart director do in Europe.  He created one very stylish, very smart thriller called The Alzheimer Case and came away with a huge international hit, a success he would duplicate with another tightly wrought thriller in The Loft a couple years later.

Well, Van Looy has never really left the world of The Alzheimer Case behind, working ever since on a script for a sequel

Stylish trailer for Jan Verheyen's thriller Dossier K

Police procedurals aren’t typically my cup of tea (I don’t do well with mysteries in general) but when one looks as stylish as this one, I can’t help but pay a little attention.

The follow-up to the very successful Belgian film The Alzheimer Case, the new entry in the franchise Dossier K re-unites Koen De Bouw as Eric Vincke and Werner De Smedt as Freddy Verstuyft, detectives of the Antwerp police department. This time around the dynamic duo are dealing with an Albanian mobster as well as some drama within the police department (I’m guessing dirty cops).

The Alzheimer Case director Erik Van Looy has taken up writing duties on the project leaving the space behind the camera to be filled by Jan Verheyen and if this trailer is any indication, that was a good move. The poster may be lame (talk about a return to

Fs: Memory of a Killer

  • Foreign Spotlight: Memory of a Killer A young girl prostituted by her own father, an aging hitman with Alzheimer, a sexually charged widow, a corrupt Baron and two diverse detectives all clash heads in the vicious, cold blooded thriller Memory of Killer. Containing a little Belgium twist, this is definitely Flemish director Erik Van Looy’s homage to the American thriller with an extra effort to gain popularity beyond his national audience. Angelo Ledda (Jan DecleirJan Decleir
[/link]) is the aging hitman forced to write down everything of importance on his arms due to his battle with Alzheimer. But unlike Memento, he uses a marker that can easily be wiped clean to leave no trace. Against his own judgment he takes on a mission that eventually leads him into the world of pedophilia. Ledda, a hitman with a heart of gold, grows a conscience and falls out of love with murder,
