Recap: 2013 Sundance Film Festival Predictions

26 November 2012 10:20 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Over the long weekend, plenty of folks got the news that they’ve had their feature, doc or short films accepted into the Sundance Film Festival. This Wednesday, the festival begins making their line-up official while keeping the short film announcements for the following week. The previous week we’ve made some prognostications as to what should be included in the 2013 edition. Here’s an easy to click recap of some of those predictions. We’ve added those who’ve been mentioned in Filmmaker Magazine’s 25 New Faces of Independent Film, the fortunate ones who’ve had their work run inside the Sundance Labs, those who are working from a Blacklist named screenplay, those who are basing their feature on a short film that was accepted into the festival in a previous edition and finally those who’ve had funding via Kickstarter. * denotes feature directorial debut while ++ denotes that person »

2013 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Havana Marking’s Smash & Grab – The Story of the Pink Panthers

21 November 2012 11:30 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

British docu helmer Havana Marking broke into the film world via Sundance with the double prize winning (World Cinema Documentary Directing and Audience Awards) 2009 docu Afghan Star, three years later Havana Marking will preem Smash & Grab – The Story of the Pink Panthers at the Ifda and probably follow that up with the U.S premiere.

Gist: The Pink Panthers are the world’s most successful jewel thieves. With incredible unprecedented access, gang members Mike and Lela reveal the gang’s networks, history and human story. Playing out like a noir thriller and using cutting edge animation, the film keeps a Hollywood-style heist at its centre. We also follow the global police forces determined to stop them – with increasing success. But

beneath the glitz and excitement of the heists lie the dark truths of the illicit diamond trade and the war-shattered ruins of the Balkan states.

Production Co./Producers: Mike Lerner »
