Outfest has selected writer-director-actor John Cameron Mitchell (“Hedwig & the Angry Inch,” “Rabbit Hole,” “Shortbus”) as the recipient of its 19th annual Outfest Achievement Award.

John Cameron Mitchell’s iconic creation of ‘Hedwig’ almost two decades ago was a groundbreaking piece exploring transgender lives,” said Christopher Racster, interim executive director of Outfest.

“Ever since then, John has been able to push boundaries on stage and screen, and by doing so leaving an indelible mark on the Lgbt community and mainstream audiences alike. We can’t think of a more deserving recipient of this year’s Achievement Award, and hope that John »

8 May 2015 3:21 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rebecca Lenkiewicz, co-scribe of Pawel Pawlikowski’s Academy Award-winning “Ida,” is teaming with Bulgarian helmer Konstantin Bojanov for his latest film, “I Want to Be Like You,” toplining Klaus Maria Brandauer, star of Sydney Pollack’s “Out of Africa” and  Istvan Szabo’s “Mephisto,” and Barry Keoghan, who headlined Wiebke von Carolsfeld’s “Stay.”

Moving ever more from its Spanish-language focus into select acquisition of European titles, Madrid-based Latido Films will introduce “I Want to Be Like You” to international distributors at next week’s Cannes Film Market.

“Like You” is the sophomore outing as a director and first English-language feature for Bojanov, who debuted in Cannes with “Ave,” which played Critics’ Week. Last year, Bojanov was named a European Film Promotion Producer on the Move.

Copenhagen’s Toolbox Film, London’s Film and Music Entertainment, Brussels-based Left Field Ventures and Bulgaria’s Multfilm produce.

Why 1998 Was the Best Year In Film History

27 April 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Check here for a complete list of our essays. Just one glance at the Oscar nominees for 1998 might make it seem less a questionable choice for “best year in film” — and more an insane one.   Instead of a 1974 – The Godfather II, The Conversation, Chinatown, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, etc – or even a 1994, where Shawshank, Quiz Show, and Pulp Fiction lost to Gump – you choose a year where the Oscars would allow Roberto Benigni to climb atop both the figurative and literal chairs of the Shrine?   Fine, step away from the Oscars. Would you still celebrate a year that saw not one, but two movies about asteroids threatening the Earth?  A year that saw such scars carved across cinematic history as Patch Adams, My Giant, Stepmom, and Krippendorf’s Tribe?   It bears repeating: Krippendorf’S Tribe? »

Hollywood went hunting for lots of British comedy talent in the 1990s - and lured the likes of Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry and Emma Thompson...

For some reason, Hollywood fell in love with British actors again in the 1990s. Sparked by Alan Rickman's turn as Hans Gruber in Die Hard at the back end of the 1980s, many movie villains were either Brits, or in the case of Cliffhanger, John Lithgow taking on the mannerisms of a British antagonist.

Yet in particular, Hollywood went recruiting British comedy talent, with faces then mainly - but not exclusively - known for their small screen work getting roles of various sizes in Hollywood productions. Here are some who racked up the air miles - starting with the man who arguably became one of the most successful...

Laurie is a man of many talents, who ultimately cracked America with »
