Sony Pictures Spain, Enrique Cerezo, Tve Pact for ‘1898, Our Last Men’

6 July 2016 5:57 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Madrid — Sony Pictures Spain has acquired all Spanish distribution rights to real-event-based adventure pic “1898, Our Last Men in the Philippines,” produced by Spain’s Enrique Cerezo and one of the first big modern mainstream films in modern Spain to sing the virtues of at least a reduced number of Spanish heroes, set here at a time of national defeat.

Spain’s film establishment is normally highly critical with its establishment, and its figures, born out by such local B.O. hits as swashbuckler “Alatriste,” starring Viggo Mortensen, set in a seventeenth century Madrid and an acerbic take on Spain’s loss of empire.

Backed by Spanish state TV network Tve and the recently-launched nationwide private channel 13Tv, the film underscores once more the crucial role played by TV broadcasters in local film financing schemes.

‘Smoke & Mirrors,’ ‘Jota,’ ‘100 Meters’ Lead Madrid de Cine Dealing (Exclusive)

30 June 2016 12:56 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid — Alberto Rodriguez’s “Smoke & Mirrors,” Carlos Saura’s “La Jota” and Marcel Barrena’s “100 Meters” cut three of the highest-profile deals at an upbeat Spanish Screenings-Madrid de Cine, which wrapped Wednesday.

The three-day Spanish cinema sales market was a small event in comparison to its French and British counterparts, UniFrance’s Rendez-Vous with French Cinema in January and this month’s London Screenings. That said, a healthy number of deals went down, highlighting some upcoming titles which look set to hit big festivals and Spain’s box office from this late summer.

Based on a corruption scandal which helped oust former Spanish Prime Minister Felipe Gonzalez’s socialist government from power in 1996, the Film Factory-sold espionage thriller “Smoke & Mirrors” closed in Madrid with Italy’s Movies Inspired.
