Italy’s Videa Studios, Where ‘Cinema Paradiso’ Was Shot, Opens To International Productions

7 September 2015 8:19 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Italy’s Videa Studios, the facilities near Rome founded in the 1960’s by producer Franco Cristaldi where Italian cinema classics by Luchino Visconti, Francesco Rosi and also Giuseppe Tornatore’s “Cinema Paradiso” were shot, are looking to lure international productions by offering production services plus potential co-production partnerships to indie pictures that could be released in Italy via their Videa distribution side.

Among other titles that Videa will be releasing in Italy are Stephen FrearsLance Armstrong biopic “The Program.”

Videa is owned by Italian TV producer and film distributor Sandro Parenzo.

“Besides owning these studios, we are a distribution company,” says Videa executive Angelica Canevari. “The idea of opening the market to international production stems more from us as film distributors than from our owning the studios,” she added.

That is not to say that they are not open to other ways of doing business. The studios currently host several Italian TV shows. »

Anniversaries: Pat Metheny Born 61 Years Ago

12 August 2015 9:03 AM, PDT | | See recent CultureCatch news »

Happy birthday to Pat Metheny (born August 12, 1954), one of the few jazz superstars of the past four decades to combine commercial success and critical plaudits. After paying his dues in Gary Burton's band (which he joined at age 19), Metheny put out his first album in 1976 and by the time of his third release two years later was gaining crossover radio play. Though the style of his eponymous band was smooth and tuneful, Metheny had a firm basis in jazz and straight-ahead guitarist gods such as Jim Hall (with whom he eventually recorded a fine duo album).

With success came the challenge of avoiding complacency, which Metheny has met masterfully with a wide-ranging series of albums in a variety of stylistic bags, from atonal skronk to mellow Brazilian, from thorny Ornette Coleman covers to mercurial bebop. Along the way he has lent his prestige to both respected elders (Hall, Burton, Coleman, »

29 April 2015 10:19 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Here's a nifty way to get audiences back in movie theaters that actually works: build one underground. The Underground Film Club will host a series of screenings at Charing Cross, the abandoned tube station where big action set pieces for Bond films including "Skyfall" and "Die Another Day" unfolded. Moviegoing Londoners will be treated to subterranean viewings of "Blade Runner," "Some Like It Hot," "Strangers on a Train," "Breakfast at Tiffany's," "Casablanca," "Cinema Paradiso" and "Paddington," which also shot in the station, closed since 1999. Supported by the British Film Institute and organized by Rooftop Film Club, the pop-up cinema heralds London's upcoming all-night tube service expected to begin on September 12. Other events include behind-the-scenes tours and a photography exhibit at Westminster station. Check out a gallery of photos inside the theater here, and more from Mashable »

Action as Irons and Tornatore shoot in Scotland by Richard Mowe - 2015-04-27 10:38:44

Giuseppe Tornatore with his star Jeremy Irons now shooting The Correspondence

Oscar-winning actor Jeremy Irons has been striding the streets of Edinburgh this week for a new film shooting on location from Italian director Giuseppe Tornatore, who made the classic Cinema Paradiso, for which he won an Academy Award.

Irons plays an astrophysics professor in The Correspondence, which is being filmed in Edinburgh as well as on San Giulio Island in the Piemont region of Italy, and Trentino Alto Adige and parts of England.

The film centres on Irons’ relationship with his student, Amy (Olga Kurylenko) . Her character is also a stuntwoman for television and cinema whose action scenes always end with the death of her fictional character, a choice imposed by her attempt to sublimate strong guilt-feelings. The relationship with her professor will "help her to find her lost existential balance,” according to the production notes.

Italian Producers Arturo Paglia, Isabella Cocuzza Risk Their Own Cash Films With Global Prospects

24 April 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In Italy, where local movies are increasingly sagging at the box office, Arturo Paglia and Isabella Cocuzza represent something new -— young producers scoring solid returns with movies that can travel. But even more impressive: They’re willing to risk their own money on the projects.

It’s a novel vision for Italy, where producers typically mount movies by assembling outside financing, and then pocket only peanuts beyond a producer’s fee.

Latest in the pipeline of Paglia and Cocuzza’s Rome-based Paco Cinematografica single is Giuseppe Tornatore’s English-language cross-generational romancer “The Correspondence,” toplining Jeremy Irons and Olga Kurylenko, which started shooting March 30 in Northern Italy.

“Correspondence” marks the producers’ second English-lingo Tornatore pic, following “The Best Offer,” the 2013 thriller starring Geoffrey Rush, which grossed $13 million in Italy via Warner Bros. and was sold globally by uMedia.  “Offer” repped a major comeback for the “Cinema Paradiso” helmer, whose misguided »

Black Souls Is a Mesmerizing New Italian Gangster Film

11 April 2015 8:51 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Don't be alarmed if you feel a little lost during the early scenes of the somber new gangster film Black Souls. Director Francesco Munzi lets his tragic narrative unfold gradually and subtly, like a neo-neorealist take on The Godfather. There's a good reason for this: He wants to show us his individual characters — all members of the Carbone family – in their different environments. And at first, this isn't quite the Mafia we recognize from movies. There's a mundane quality to this business: We see Rocco (Peppino Mazzotta), the boss, getting cash from his bankers so he can pay his men (many of whom, we may notice, have Middle Eastern names); we see his loose-cannon brother Luigi (strong-jawed Marco Leonardi — who was once the fresh-faced teenage Toto in Cinema Paradiso) negotiating some kind of deal with a group of Spaniards; we see Luciano (Fabrizio Ferracane), the oldest, who wants »

Black Souls | Review

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

Now I Lay Me Down to Kill: Munzi’s Enjoyably Reserved Mafia Film

Premiering last fall at the 2014 Venice Film Festival, where it picked up a handful of prizes, Francesco Munzi’s third film, Black Souls, is a deliberately paced examination of familiar mafia standards. Based on a novel by Giacchino Criaco, it’s bound to be compared (and perhaps exist within the shadow of) Matteo Garrone’s highly celebrated 2008 feature, Gomorrah. But Munzi’s film is equally convincing, lending an austere sense of realism to what otherwise plays like a classic theatrical tragedy of three brothers at odds, locked in opposition and contention with the heavy baggage of their lineage. Light on dialogue and heavy on brooding characters marinating in their own mistrust or disdain of one another, it’s a successfully engaging film, but despite an enjoyably dire finale, isn’t as memorable as some modern comparative material. »

Vittorio De Sica’s ‘The Garden of the Finzi-Continis’ Freshly Restored Thanks to Fashion World Rescue

20 March 2015 3:49 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome — Italian director Vittorio De Sica’s 1971 foreign-language film Oscar winner “The Garden of the Finzi-Continis” will be reissued in a digitally restored print funded by Italian fashion label Antony Morato in collaboration with Italo state film entity Istituto Luce-Cinecittà and Vogue magazine, which are world-preeming the fresh version in Rome with an international launch to follow.

Restoration of the “Finzi-Continis” film, which is based on Giorgio Bassani’s largely autobiographical novel about an aristocratic Jewish family in the beautiful Italian town of Ferrara prior to their deportation to Nazi death camps, marks the latest instance of the film and fashion worlds intersecting. A glitzy March 25 gala at Rome’s Casa del Cinema will be attended among others by De Sica family members, by actor Lino Capolicchio — who starred in the film, which also featured Dominique Sanda — and by Vogue Italy editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani.

2015 First Time Fest – Harvey Weinstein Interview

16 March 2015 5:22 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Johanna Bennett’s and Mandy Ward’s third annual celebration of first time filmmakers concluded on March 9 with a tribute to no one other than Harvey Weinstein. The festival, one that puts forth newly formed filmmakers with the audience they deserve, makes sure that all aspects of filmmaking are met and that the aspiring filmmakers know what to do with their next film. Weinstein, of the famed The Weinstein Company, along with his brother Bob, has shown himself over the years to have supported first time filmmakers when no one else would. And his trust in these filmmakers have only proven themselves to be some of today’s best directors, writers, actors, and more.

In many ways, Weinstein’s support of such filmmakers has created them. Quentin Tarantino would not be a household name had Weinstein not decided to produce Reservoir Dogs, the same goes for Steven Soderbergh’s Sex, »
