The event, running Dec 13-16 within the Les Arcs European Film Festival (Dec 13-20), will present 25 projects in development and a further 10 Works-in-Progress.

“I thinks it’s a good sign that filmmakers whose projects we presented in development are now coming back to show their films in Work-in-Progress, which is the case for Sparrow and Rams,” said Les Arcs industry head Vanja Kaludjercic.

“Conversely, we’ve got directors who presented in Works-in Progress, such as Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurðsson, who came with Paris of the North last year, who is back with his new project The Tree »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #90. Angelina Nikonova’s Welcome Home

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

Welcome Home

Director: Angelina Nikonova

Writer(s): Angelina Nikonova, Olga Dykhovichnaya, Karren Karagulian

Producer: Daniela Albin

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Kika Magalhaes, Paulina Simkin, Austin Kennedy

Despite not being noticed by distributors, helmer Angelina Nikonova and for that matter, actress-writer Olga Dykhovichnaya rocked cinephilia foundations with the heavily traveled Twilight Portrait. For her sophomore feature, Nikonova creatively pairs off with Dykhovichnaya again, but this time is working with what could be considered some comedy noir elements on the not so fun joys of immigration and working in the English-language instead of Russian.

Gist: et in NYC, this is about a group of immigrants who have become hostage to their life choices.

Release Date: Having filmed midway last year, this should be ready and searching for a festival fit.
