Greece’s heritage film sector, while a niche market, can be vibrant if handled correctly, according to Spyros Damianakis, managing director of Athen-based boutique distributor Neo Films.
“There is a market in Greece for classical films and this year we decided to jump in,” Damianakis said.
Neo Films, whose current contemporary releases include Gabe Klinger’s “Porto,” starring the late Anton Yelchin, and Joshua Z Weinstein’s “Menashe,” released the 1954 Marlon Brando-starrer “On the Waterfront” and Luc Besson’s 1988 “The Big Blue” this summer – the key season in Greece for classic films, which draw crowds to open-air cinemas.
Cinema-going habits change drastically from summer to winter, Laetitia Kulyk, audiovisual attaché at Greece’s Institut Français, explained. Multiplexes focusing on mainstream blockbusters dominate the winter
Dubbed The Classics – Festival of the Films That Will Live Forever, the new film fest is founded by producer Ivonne Torres and Juan Carvajal, co-founder and artistic director of the three-year old Bogota Independent Film Festival, IndieBo.
Buoyed by sell-out crowds at IndieBo last July when the festival screened restored classics via a new pact with Martin Scorsese’s Film Foundation, Carvajal said: “I saw how these movie gems – rescued and restored with the support of the Film Foundation – deserved nothing better than to be enjoyed where they belong: the big screen.”
For many moviegoers in Bogota, it was the first time to see such classics as Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s “All About Eve,” Elia Kazan’s “On the Waterfront,” and [link=nm

Abundant Acreage Available (Angus MacLachlan)
Faith-based cinema is as diverse a genre as there is, from the extreme, often violent portraits of devotion from established directors like Martin Scorsese and Mel Gibson, to the attacks on logic in the God’s Not Dead and Left Behind pictures. Angus MacLachlan, a great storyteller of the not-too-deep south, offers a nuanced example of what this genre can bring, returning with the moving Abundant Acreage Available.
Growing up in India, Fazal didn’t hear the usual bedtime stories from his mother. Instead she told the 5-year-old the tale of warring mob families in New York. It wasn’t until much later that he realized that she had related “The Godfather.” He was obsessed with Marlon Brando and watched all his movies: “On the Waterfront,” “A Streetcar Named Desire” and, of course, “The Godfather” movies.
With that upbringing you’d think it wasn’t strange that he became an actor, but the “Victoria & Abdul” star says he studied science. “I was a single child and they were worried about security,” he says of his parents. “Acting is considered a hobby in India.” Fazal caught audience interest with a small but pivotal role in Bollywood mega hit “3 Idiots.” Other films such as “Fukrey” followed as well as a

You spent the whole day talking about the film. One of the things I’m sure you’ve been asked, and I apologise for asking it, but I think the answer may inform where the rest of this interview goes. There’s an obvious similarity, particularly with casting, to Mrs Brown.
What was it you felt you could do differently?
Didn’t think about it.

This brutal, violently realistic drama, set against the sordid background of the New York waterfront, packs a terrific wallop that results in topflight entertainment.

Among the titles in the selection are Marlon Brando’s 1961 Western “One-Eyed Jacks,” Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s “All About Eve,” Elia Kazan’s “On the Waterfront,” Frank Capra’s “It Happened One Night,” Nicholas Ray’s “Rebel Without a Cause” and Billy Wilder’s “Witness for the Prosecution.”
“This will be an annual event; some of these titles have never screened in Colombia,” said IndieBo artistic director/programmer Juan Carvajal, who cobbled the agreement with the foundation in New York.
He added: “After seeing ‘One Eyed Jacks’ and [Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1979 sci-fi epic] “Stalker” in New York, I felt that Colombia had to live this marvelous and unique experience, too, and that’s what drove me to pursue this agreement.” The

Hyams spent more than 40 years at Warners, rising to executive VP of special projects. He worked with Eastwood on all his films from 1971’s “Any Which Way But Loose” through 2004’s “Mystic River” and shepherded the films through film festivals, premieres and awards campaigns.
