Rome Film Fest To Slim Down Lineup, Eliminate Juries, And Focus On Emerging Directors

7 July 2014 7:37 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – After a long period of silence, during which it suffered a date change and a budget cut, the Rome Film Festival has announced it will have a slimmer lineup during its upcoming October 16-25 ninth edition, and no international juries for most of its prizes.

 

The Rome nods will be awarded by the audience to works within sections that have been radically restructured, with the fest shifting from its stated ambition to become a wide-ranging launching pad to now having a particular focus on first and second works.

 

The audience will vote for most prizes, aside for one for debuting directors, called the TaoDue Camera d’Oro, for best first or second work, awarded by a jury of industry pros.

 

While 71 pics unspooled in Rome last year, when it ran Nov. 8-17, there will instead be 40 features screening in Rome this year. The sections are: Cinema d’Oggi, featuring »

Huayi Brothers boards Men Vs Women remake

20 April 2014 8:39 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Beijing-based Huayi Brothers Media Corporation has boarded the Chinese remake of Italian comedies Men Vs Women and Women Vs Men and will produce with Cai Gongming’s Road Pictures and Italian filmmaker Cristiano Bortone.

Huayi Brothers will also distribute the project, which is currently being scripted and is expected to start shooting before the end of the year. The remake is in the process of attaching a director and is expecting to draw an ensemble cast of major Chinese stars.

Cai and Bortone are combining episodes from the two original films to make one movie to start with, but envisage the concept as a possible franchise under the title Gender Wars. “The story has characters of different ages and backgrounds, so it will appeal to all audience age groups,” said Cai. “It also gives us an opportunity to look at changing gender identity roles in Chinese society.”
