Italo Motion Picture Org Anica Launches Its Own VOD Service

2 April 2014 6:10 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – Italy’s motion picture association Anica is launching its own Video-On-Demand service for movies intended as a tool to fight the country’s rampant piracy plague and also to stimulate online distribution now stalled by the country’s low broadband penetration and speed.

Called Anica On Demand, the platform is a three-way partnership between Anica and Italy’s top local movie website, which boasts 400,000 unique visitors a day, and digital media outfit Cross Advertising Network.

The streaming service’s initial content offer is a measly 350 titles, about 8 percent of which are current. Slightly less than half the pics, which range from Matthew Vaughn’s raunchy “Kick-Ass” to Italo auteur Nanni Moretti’s refined “We Have a Pope,” are currently Italian. But as it grows, the idea is for the new Italo VOD platform to be primarily for Italian movies, and to also pave the way for other online VOD players. »

Mia Madre goes to Films Distribution

9 February 2014 2:34 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Marguerite Buy, John Turturro and Nanni Moretti lead cast in film currently shooting in Rome.

Films Distribution has acquired worldwide rights to Nanni Moretti’s upcoming dramedy Mia Madre about a film director juggling her contrasting public and private lives.

Marguerite Buy, John Turturro and Nanni Moretti lead the cast in the film, which is currently shooting in Rome.

Buy plays a successful film director whose powerful on-set persona is at odds with her private self.

On set, Buy’s character takes command. Back home, she is at the mercy of her ailing mother and taciturn adolescent son.

John Turturro plays an American actor in a film she is shooting. Moretti is also in the cast in the role of the filmmaker’s brother.

“Moretti never under estimates the audience’s intelligence. The characters are as smart as you want them to be, or as they should be,” said Films Distribution co-chief Nicolas Brigaud-Robert.

“It’s a dramedy »

6 February 2014 6:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Director: Sara Colangelo

Writer: Sara Colangelo

Producer: Archer Gray Prod’s Anne Carey, TideRock Media’s Jason Michael Berman and Thomas B. Fore, Summer Shelton

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Elizabeth Banks, Boyd Holbrook, Chloë Sevigny, Jacob Lofland, Josh Lucas, Alexia Rasmussen

We had this Sundance Institute’s 2011 June Directors and Screenwriters Labs directing debut pegged for Sundance slot and of course we got bits and pieces of the West Virginia backdrop planted in Park City. Little Accidents is a strong debut, lush cinematography from Rachel Morrison and solid narrative and direction choices from first-timer Sara Colangelo.

Gist: In a small American coal town, this follows the disappearance of Jt, a 14 year-old boy in an American coal town which has already seen its share of tragedy after a mining accident. Jt’s disappearance draws together three local residents from very different walks of life. Together they struggle »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #171. Nanni Moretti’s Mia Madre

5 February 2014 8:15 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Mia Madre (My Mother)

Director: Nanni Moretti

Writers: Nanni Moretti, Franceso Poccolo and Valia Santella

Producers: Moretti’s Sacher Film production,  Le Pacte, Arte Cinema

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Nanni Moretti, Margerita Buy

Word on the cobblestone street is that Mia Madre is “partially autobiographical”. In our opinion, among the ten films in his filmography, Nanni Moretti’s biographical Caro diario might be his greatest celluloid legacy.

Gist: Tbd. No plot details have been released.

Release Date: Shooting began in January, which means it’ll be a longshot for a Cannes showing….is a Venice in August preem or his former stomping grounds Torino a possibility?

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #172. Benjamin Heisenberg’s Superegos

5 February 2014 8:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »


Director: Benjamin Heisenberg

Writers: Benjamin Heisenberg, Josef Lechner

Producer: Komplizen film

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Hildeaard Schroedter, Maria Hofstatter, Nina Fog

Heisenberg received critical acclaim and a smattering of film fest awards for his 2010 film, The Robber, which was based on a true story and is currently being groomed for an English language remake. His latest is being produced by Maren Ade and stars the deliriously entertaining Maria Hofstatter. We’re hoping to hear great things out of Berlin, where it was just announced the film will premiere.

Gist: A comical, double trouble buddy movie with both sensual and cryptic moments, Superegos shows how the improbabilities of life bring the washed-up boheme Nick Gutlicht together with the star psychologist Curt Ledig, who is rather long in the tooth and highly controversial because of his Nazi connections. Although he puts up some resistance, Nick soon becomes an object »

Italian Director Carlo Mazzacurati Dies At 57

24 January 2014 12:16 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome - Italian director Carlo Mazzacurati, who blended noir, comedy, and observations about Italy’s social changes and moral decay in a dozen feature films, several of which won prizes and screened at prestigious fests, including Venice, Locarno, and Turin, died on Jan 22. He was 57.

Mazzacurati passed in Monselice, on the outskirts of his birth city of Padua, near Venice, following a long illness, reportedly cancer of an unspecified type.

He was known to have a deep feeling for the landscapes of his native northeast Veneto region of Italy, depicted in many of his films.

Mazzucurati’s career was launched by Nanni Moretti who produced his first full-fledged feature the atmospheric noir “Notte Italiana,” about corruption in the northeast, which screened at the Venice Critics’ Week in 1987 and went on to score several prizes, including an Italian Silver Ribbon nod for best new director.

In 1994, Mazzacurati won the Venice Silver »
