Venice: Spain’s La Canica Films Debuts ‘Fury,’ Launches New Talent Drive (Exclusive)

1 September 2016 10:17 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid-based La Canica Films, which has “Tarde para la ira” (The Fury of a Patient Man) in Venice Horizons, is rapidly becoming one of Spain’s increasingly rare new talent hubs.

La Canica’s Beatriz Bodegas is now planning to produce first features by three more newcomers: Jota Linares, Manuel Gomez and Javier Kuhn.

Launched in 2010, Canica has stood apart for its mix of new and established talent, producing “Didi Hollywood,” the last film directed by Bigas Luna (“Jamon, Jamon”), as well as for its leverage of tax vehicles and bank guarantee schemes, and backing of Spanish movies which shot abroad, such as Gustavo Ron’s “My Bakery in Brooklyn.”

Also on Canica’s slate, and currently packaging finance: Black comedy road movie “Ultima voluntad” (working title), from writer-director Achero Mañas (“Anything You Want”).

“Fury,” sold by Spanish sales house Film Factory, has been snapped up by Palomar for Italy. »
