Mica: Upstart Mexico City Market Looks to Impact With High-End TV, Impressive Docs and Female-Led Fiction

This week, organized by the Imcine Mexican Film-tv Institute, Mexico City’s Mercado Industria Cine y Audiovisual in Mexico City is set to showcase a number of standout film and TV projects from Mexico and beyond. The festivities kicked off on Wednesday with the 4th Fénix Ibero-American Film and TV awards.

The Mica market will be playing catch-up with larger Latin American markets like Ventana Sur for some time, but it looks set to prove an arresting display for the rapidly growing gallery of higher end TV projects produced by top production companies in Mexico and aimed at international co-production partners or distribution. At one in the same time, this year’s Mica market attests to the strength of Mexico’s modern documentary tradition and to the spiraling presence of women in its industry and lead creative roles.

Juan José Campanella, Cris Morena, Gastón Gorali Team for ‘Escape to India’ (Exclusive)
Academy Award-winning Juan José Campanella (“The Secret in Their Eyes”), top Latin American producer-director-songwriter Cris Morena (“Rebelde Way”) and director-producer Gastón Gorali (“Underdogs”), a driving force on Argentina’s burgeoning animation scene, are teaming to create “Escape to India,” a flagship Latin American toon feature.

American Film Market: Juan Vera Talks ‘Love at Last Sight,’ Ricardo Darín, Argentine Growth

American Film Market: Juan Vera Talks ‘Love at Last Sight,’ Ricardo Darín, Argentine Growth
It’s never too late for love, as Juan Vera’s feature “Love at Last Sight” suggests. Equally, it’s never too late to direct. A case in point, Vera, who almost qualifies as an institution on Argentina’s production scene, is directing his first feature 26 years after launching his career as a producer. “Love at Last Sight” is being produced by the Patagonik, co-owned by Disney, the company behind “Nine Queens,” Academy Award-nominated “Son of the Bride,” Pablo Trapero’s “Carancho” and “White Elephant,” and a string of box office smash hits, such as this year’s “10 Days Without Mom.” The pic also stars Ricardo Darín, a Argentina’s biggest international star. With that kind of pedigree, Vera’s directorial debut is shaping up as one of the big new films coming out of Latin America for 2018. “Love at Last Sight” is being repped at the American Film Market by Guido Rud’s FilmSharks Intl., and

San Sebastian: Ricardo Darín To Be Honored at San Sebastian

San Sebastian: Ricardo Darín To Be Honored at San Sebastian
Barcelona – Argentina’s Ricardo Darín will receive the San Sebastian Film Festival’s Donostia Award for career achievement on Sept. 26. The prize is the highest distinction given by the highest-profile fest in the Spanish-speaking world.

The Donostia Award was launched in 1986 and began by recognizing stars from Hollywood classic era –Gregory Peck, Bette Davis, Glenn Ford– to later expand to eminent and far more recent U.S, and European figures such as Al Pacino, Michael Caine and Susan Sarandon.

Buenos Aires-born Darín will receive the award at a presentation of Santiago Mitre’s “The Summit.” Via its Donostia Award, the festival will honor one of most charismatic and well-known of contemporary Latin-American actors who has worked with many of the Spanish-speaking world’s most prestigious filmmakers including Juan José Campanella, Adolfo Aristarain, Pablo Trapero, Fabián Bielinsky, Fernando Trueba, Cesc Gay and Mitre.

Darín is the second Latin-American actor distinguished with the honor, after Benicio del Toro in 2014. Darín’s recognition is in line with San Sebastian aim of strengthening links with Latin America, seen in its thriving Latin-American Co-production Forum, launched by fest director José Luis Rebordinos in 2011.

A co-production between K&S Films and La Union de los Ríos (Argentina), Mod Producciones (Spain) and Maneki Films (France), “The Summit” was also penned by Mitre and offers two intertwining plots –one focused on the personal life of an Argentine president, played by Darin, and the other depicting the political intrigue at a Latin American summit. Alongside Darín, Dolores Fonzi, Érica Rivas, Elena Anaya, Daniel Giménez Cacho and Christian Slater figure in the cast. The feature world premiered in Cannes’ One Certain Regard and is sold by Spain’s Film Factory Entertainment. It will be released in U.S. on Aug. 18 via Warner Bros Pictures International.

Darin’s career dates back to when he was five and began acting in TV series. His international breakthrough came with Fabian Bielinsky’s “Nine Queens.” Some of his most noteworthy performances have been in movies of Juan José Campanella’s, led by “The Secret in Their Eyes” who won a best foreign-language Academy Award). Darin also starred in ”Son of the Bride,” nominated for an Academy Award, ”Moon of Avellaneda,” also from Campanella, Fernando Trueba’s “The Dancer and the Thief,” Sebastián Borenzstein’s “Kóblic,” Damián Szifron’s “Wild Tales” and Pablo Trapero’s “White Elephant.”

Though he can shown large range, if there’s a Darín touch, perhaps its the light and tender irony he gives to many of his characters.

Spanish director Manuel Gutiérrez Aragón said of Darín: “All the characters he plays seem to have been especially written for him and only for him to play them. Darín lends transparency to characters he embodies.”

On of Latin America’s most bankable actors, whose presence can help pre-sell a movie, Darin’s selectiveness with the films he stars in has made his involvement an important pointer to a movie’s quality.

“The Secret of Their Eyes,” earned $6.4 million for Sony Pictures Classics in 2010 and “Wild Tales,” another Sony Pictures Classics pickup accumulated $44 million worldwide, a standout figure for a Spanish-language feature.

Darín took the best actor Silver Shell Award in San Sebastian for Cesc Gay’s “Truman.”

The Geographic Setup of the Oscar’s Foreign-Language Category in the 21st Century

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

The nine foreign-language films shortlisted by the Academy hail from three continents: South America, Europe and Africa. From South America, Argentina’s Wild Tales and Venezuela’s The Liberator made the list. From Africa, Mauritania’s Timbuktu did as well. From Europe, Estonia’s Tangerines, Georgia’s Corn Island, the Netherlands’ Accused, Poland’s Ida, Russia’s Leviathan and Sweden’s Force Majeure all made the top nine.

This year could mark the first Oscar nomination for Estonia, Georgia, Mauritania (whose film was the country’s first Oscar-submitted film) and Venezuela. Argentina, the Netherlands, Poland and Sweden have each received two Oscar nominations in the past 14 years. Of those four countries, Argentina is the only one to win an Oscar, which it did in 2010 for The Secret in Their Eyes. If Russia lands a nomination, it will be the country’s second in the 21st century.

She is renowned for her work on illustrious films such as "The Secret in Their Eyes" (winner of the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 2010), "The Oxford Murders" (starring Elijah Wood and John Hurt) and Oscar nominated "Son of the Bride" (Best Film at the Argentinean Film Critics Association Awards 2002) among many others.

His focus is on growing the Vimeo on Demand solution for independent film sales.

“I am excited by the opportunity to meet talented producers at Strategic Partners and talk about the possibilities of online marketing and sales for films and series," says Gerard. "The Vimeo On Demand catalogue is growing fast and we are empowering creators to connect with their global audiences through direct distribution."

"There's no doubt the digital first conversation will be overarching at Strategic Partners this year, and therefore I'm very excited to present industry leader, Peter Gerard, to deliver a keynote address on the topic of Producers as Entrepreneurs," says Mackenzie. "Vimeo's foray into original content with the series High Maintenance further solidifies the commitment and platform of self-distribution to supporting producers and content creation - this is exactly who we want represented at Strategic Partners!"
