Berlin: Variety Teams With MoDrei to Host Dance Night at Berlin Club Anita Berber

10 February 2015 7:23 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Berlin — On Monday, Variety teamed up with MoDrei to host a European Film Market party at uber-cool club Anita Berber on Gerichtstraße in Berlin.

For those not acquainted with the night-spot, they may have thought they had been lured to their doom at the murky end of a parking lot, but instead they found a warm and good-spirited gathering of some of the nicest people at the Berlin market dancing to music by DJ Flo Motion.

Moritz Hemminger, one of the partners behind MoDrei and an executive at Arri Worldsales, said they came up with the idea of the Berlin party “mainly to have a fun evening with our friends from the industry. We wanted to create an event that is more casual than the many more official Berlinale receptions taking place these days. And now with Variety on board we have the perfect partner for the MoDrei venue,” Hemminger said. »

‘Timbuktu,’ ‘Sils Maria,’ ‘Saint Laurent’ Vie for French Cesar Glory

28 January 2015 2:36 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In one of the widest-open Cesar races in recent years, Abderrahmane Sissako’s Oscar-nominated “Timbuktu” will face off for best picture with Olivier Assayas’ “Sils Maria,” Bertrand Bonello’s “Saint Laurent” and talked-up newcomer Thomas Cailley’s “Love at First Fight” at France’s 2015 Cesar Awards.

Timbuktu,” which world premiered at Cannes, earned eight Cesar nominations and will also compete foreign-language Oscar next month.

The Cesar race is dominated by “Saint Laurent” with 10 noms. Coming second is “Love at First Fight,” a performance-driven romantic comedy that proves to be yet another gem discovered by Directors’ Fortnight topper Edouard Waintrop (following last year’s “Me, Myself and Mom,” which ended up winning five Cesar kudos).

Also making the best picture cut, in a nomination line-up underscoring France’s wide production range: Robin Campillo’s “Eastern Boys,” French dramedy blockbuster “La Famille Belier,” helmed by Eric Lartigau, and Thomas Lilti’s admired medical drama “Hippocrates. »

Paris– Luc Besson, whose latest film “Lucy” was the highest-grossing French export of 2014 and, indeed, of all time, was feted as man of the year at the Unifrance Rendez-Vous’ annual presser.

For the occasion, “Lucy” star Scarlett Johansson recorded a video introduced by Unifrance’s managing director Isabelle Giordano during a packed press conference,  attended by not only Besson but also Oscar-nominated “Timbuktu” producer Sylvie Pialat, France’s minister of culture Fleur Pellerin, Cnc president Frederique Bredin, and helmers Michel Gondry, Joachim Lafosse and Nadav Lapid, among many others.

“The qualities that really drew me to work with Luc Besson — and is a huge part of the success of ‘Lucy’ — is his passion to achieve greatness. Luc is a perfectionist, and he has a certain idea of what he wants and won’t stop at anything to get it, and that’s what inspires everyone to strive for their greatest, »
