2015 Venice Film Festival: Guadagnino, Sokurov, Kaufman, Bellocchio & Fukunaga Compete for Golden Lion

29 July 2015 4:35 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

With the exception of Cary Fukunaga’s Beasts of No Nation and Tom Hooper’s The Danish Girl, the nineteen other films in Venice Film Festival’s contention for the Golden Lion won’t be mentioned during awards season, but who cares when you have the likes of Aleksander Sokurov, Luca Guadagnino and Marco Bellocchio in the line-up. Not unlike previous years, the 2015 edition has a good numbers of films from Italy and the U.S., with several France co-productions littered throughout and the addition of fresh faces with first time works from composer Piero Messina and artist/musician Laurie Anderson.

While non comp offerings in the shape of Scott Cooper’s Black Mass and Thomas McCarthy’s Spotlight are sure to receive a fair amount of trade news attention it’s the docus that are especially rich this year: Frederick Wiseman is joined by Sergei Loznitsa makes back to »

29 July 2015 7:27 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Venice Film Festival has become one of the longest-running events on the festival circuit, its veteran status giving it a level of prestige that has only been heightened by the films that have screened at the event. Having first started in 1932, a number of movies that have gone on to be classics have won prizes at the festival, including Akira Kurosawa’s Rashomon, Satyajit Ray’s Aparajito, and Alain ResnaisLast Year at Marienbad. Interest in the festival’s lineup announcement has thus grown over the years, with many film fans curious to see what the organisers select to play at the event, due to its stature.

The festival itself will run from September 2nd to the 12th, with a jury that includes Alfonso Cuarón, Nuri Bilge Ceylan, »

Venice Fest Reveals Robust Lineup Featuring Hollywood Stars and International Auteurs

29 July 2015 2:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome — The Venice Film Festival has unveiled a potentially strong lineup with enough studio/specialty titles toplining A-list stars — including Jake Gyllenhaal (“Everest”), Johnny Depp (“Black Mass”) and Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne (“The Danish Girl”) — to boost its role as a classy awards-season platform, plus new works by Charlie Kaufman, Alexander Sokurov, Amos Gitai, Marco Bellocchio and many other high-caliber international auteurs.

As previously announced, Baltasar Kormakur’s mountain-climbing thriller “Everest” from Universal, starring Gyllenhaal, will open Venice out of competition on Sept. 2 — a nice coup for artistic director Alberto Barbera, segueing from “Birdman” as opener last year, and sci-fi thriller “Gravity” in 2013.

With Toronto less aggressive in its push to secure more world preems, Venice is bowing several hot titles — including Cary Fukunaga’s child-soldier drama “Beasts of No Nation,” Atom Egoyan’s “Remember” and Tom McCarthy’s “Spotlight,” featuring Michael Keaton’s first post-“Birdman” screen appearance — that are subsequently Toronto-bound. »

'Black Mass,' Charlie Kaufman's 'Anomalisa,' And More Expected To Hit Venice Film Festival

21 July 2015 8:41 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In just over a month, the Venice Film Festival will be kicking off, and in just a couple short weeks, organizers will be revealing their first slate of films making their starry bows on the Lido. And as always, some pretty high profile titles are expected to get the fall film festival rolling in style. According to Variety, cinephile's can expect Johnny Depp's gangster tale "Black Mass" to debut, along with "I Am Love" helmer Luca Guadagnino's "A Bigger Splash," and Charlie Kaufman's crowd-funded, stop-motion animated "Anomalisa" (get full cast and details here) to be in the lineup, with films by international auteurs Alexander Sokurov, Amos Gitai, Marco Bellocchio and Pablo Trapero also likely. That's a pretty juicy lineup. And don't forget, the Jake Gyllenhaal starring "Everest" is already slated to open the fest. And with Telluride and Toronto yet to unveil their lineups, it's going to »

Venice Film Festival: Johnny Depp’s ‘Black Mass’ And New Works From Charlie Kaufman, Alexander Sokurov Expected At 72nd Edition

20 July 2015 10:07 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – With less than ten days to go before the Venice Film festival reveals its lineup, several high-profile U.S. studio/specialty titles appear to be secured, including Scott Cooper-directed Johnny Depp gangster drama “Black Mass,” from Warner Bros., and Luca Guadagnino’s Ralph Fiennes and Tilda Swinton-starrer “A Bigger Splash, which Fox Searchlight is releasing stateside.

Also likely to be Lido-bound are Charlie Kaufman’s stop motion animation “Anomalisa” and new works from international heavyweight auteurs Alexander Sokurov, Amos Gitai, and Marco Bellocchio, as well as younger directors like Argentinian Pablo Trapero’s hot crimer “The Clan,” which Fox will release in Latin America.

Word on what pics will surface at Venice is more muted than usual this year, with artistic director Alberto Barbera believed to be making down to the wire decisions and several potential contenders, including Sean Penn-directed Liberia-set romance “The Last Face,” thought instead not to be ready. »

Argentina’s Mar del Plata Fest Changes Dates

20 July 2015 4:04 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Marbella, Spain — Argentina’s Mar del Plata Festival, Latin America’s only “A” grade fest event, has moved forward to an early November berth, running Oct. 30 to Nov. 7 this year, Lucrecia Cardoso, president of Argentina’s Incaa Film Festival, confirmed Saturday at the second Platino Awards.

Approved by the Intl. Federation of Film Producers Assns., (Fiapf), the film festival regulator, the change is to avoid a clash with potential second-round voting in Argentina’s upcoming general elections, she added.

Celebrating its 30th edition in 2015, Mar del Plata moved last year to a later date, just one week before early December’s Ventana Sur, running Nov. 22-24. That allowed the fest, which was graced by the presence of Viggo Mortensen and Paul Schrader and saw a hike in attendance to around 130,000 in ticket sales, to begin to spark synergies with Latin America’s premier film mart: Mar del Plata’s Work »

Damian Szifron’s ‘Wild Tales’ Sweeps 2nd Platino Awards

18 July 2015 3:09 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Marbella, Spain – Damian Szifron’s Oscar-nominated and Cannes competition player “Wild Tales” swept the 2nd Platino Awards for Latin American Cinema winning eight kudos in all, including best picture, director, screenplay, music (Gustavo Santaolalla) and actress, Erica Rivas, the scorned bride in the final short).

Best picture was accepted by Agustin Almodovar and Hugo Sigman who exhorted a larger collaboration between Iberoa-American film agencies to create a cinema in Latinn America, Spain and Portugal with greater international reach.

Presented by Spanish actor Imanol Arias, Mexican actress-singer Alessandra Rosario and CNN presenter Juan Carlos Arciniegas, the awards proved a triumphal march for “Wild Tales.” Of major plaudits, only best actor went elsewhere, – to Spain’s Oscar Jaenada for his performance as the great Mexican comic in “Cantinflas,” a performance so convincing that it won over most Mexicans and went on to become the second highest-grossing foreign film in the U.S. »

Platino Awards: Latin America, Spain Up Ante on Artistic, Audience Ambition

16 July 2015 1:51 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

At 62.4 million, admissions to local films in Latin America nose-dived a hefty 16.9% on 2013, the European Audiovisual Observatory announced at Cannes.

Yes, Argentina punched a 17.8% national market share, a modern record, thanks to “Wild Tales.” But Brazil’s local movie share plunged to 12.9%, Mexico’s to 10%.

So, as it gathers in Marbella, in Spain’s Andalusia, for the second Platino Awards, will the Ibero-American film industry be in a downbeat mood?

Not really, or certainly not totally. The state of film industries in Spain, Latin America and Portugal – Ibero-America for non map-meisters – is much more cross-grained than that.

Certainly, cultivating local interest in local films remains an imperative concern in Latin America. In contrasting results, Venezuelan films took 14.9% of a rapidly contracting national box office.

With the extraordinary exception of Peru (9.7%), smaller key territories in Latin America — Chile (2.8%), Colombia (4.8%), Uruguay (2.3%) – saw much smaller shares for their films, per Eao stats.

Annecy: ‘Capture the Flag,’ Spain’s Big Toon Play, Readies For Aug. 28 Paramount Bow

19 June 2015 4:38 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Annecy – Spain’s biggest animation play of 2015 – and one of its two-or-three biggest films of the year – Enrique Gato’s “Capture the Flag” will be released by Paramount Pictures on Aug. 28, replicating one of the most successful new business models emerged in the international movie industry in last decade: Big broad broadcast network backing; a movie production of sufficient caliber and scale to warrant this marketing push.

“Capture” could hardly have stronger backing. Paramount Pictures has acquired worldwide distribution rights. Two of Spain’s most powerful producers, Telecinco Cinema, who co-produced both “Spanish Affair” and “The Impossible,” which grossed €42.4 million ($47.3 million) in Spain; Telefonica Studios, whose credits include “Wild Tales,” “Underdogs” and upcoming movies by Alex de la Iglesia and Pablo Trapero, plus “Capture” originator-screenwriter and producer Jordi Gasull and producer Edmond Roch, partners at 4 Cats Pictures. Nicolas Matji’s Lightbox Animation Studios delivers animation. Mediaset España has taken free-to-air rights, »

Cinema Italiano: 2015 Venice Film Festival Predictions

15 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Now that we’ve come out of the Cannes ether, we can examine several of the names glaringly absent from the lineup that may potentially premiere on the Lido this fall. With controversial moves finding Garrel, Gomes, and Desplechin playing the Quinzaine, while Naomi Kawase and Apichatpong Weerasethakul got slotted in Un Certain Regard, we’re aggravated and pleased about some of this shifting around, but all in all, the main competition this year didn’t end up feeling like many programming risks were taken.

First off, to the general surprise of all, German director Maren Ade and British director Terence Davies were absent from the line-up, both with new highly anticipated titles (Toni Erdmann and Sunset Song respectively). Thierry Fremaux, arguably, tried to mix things up a bit with the Main Competition this year, inviting two female directors (Sacre Bleu!), including Valerie Donzelli and repeat offender Maiwenn (both titles »
