2015 Was an Outstanding Year for Co-Productions and Foreign Films Shooting in Poland

2015 was a successful year regarding the quantity and quality of foreign productions shot in Poland. At the beginning of the year, Anne Fontaine (“Coco Before Chanel,” “Perfect Mothers”) filmed a French-Polish co-production “Agnus Dei” in Warmia, which premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival. The film features Polish and French actresses among others Lou de Laage, Agata Kulesza, Agata Buzek and Joanna Kulig.

In the spring, the crew of a Polish-German-French-Belgian co-production about the life of Maria Sklodowska-Curie (dir. Marie Noelle) spent 20 days on the set in among others Lodz, Leba and Krakow. The cast is international, and the film is made in French. The Polish Nobelist is portrayed by Karolina Gruszka (“Oxygen”).

The summer brought about increased activity of German producers. A Zdf TV show, “Ein Sommer in…” was filmed in two resort towns in the north-eastern Poland – Mikolajki and Mragowo. Ard and Tvp collaborated on the set of "Polizeiruf 110" ("Police Call 110"), which was filmed in July and August among others in a Polish border-town – Swiecko. Also in July began the shooting of a new part of detective TV series "Der Usedom-Krimi" filmed on both the Polish and German side of the Usedom island.

However, a true influx of foreign productions took place in the autumn. American-Polish thriller “Chronology” was filmed in Poznan. The cast includes William Baldwin (TV series "Gossip Girl," "Adrift in Manhattan") and Danny Trejo (“Machete,” “From Dusk till Dawn”).

The Goetz Palace in Brzesk, in Malopolska hosted filmmakers from India who for six days were shooting “Fitoor,” an Indian adaptation of Dickens's “Great Expectations.” The crew consisted of over 40 Indians and almost 80 Poles. Another crew from India – this time from the so-called Kollywood in the south of the country – spent twenty days on the set in various Polish locations (among others Zakopane, Walbrzych, Krakow, Leba). The film titled “24” features Surya, a Tamil superstar, in the main role.

The autumn months were also very intensive in Lodz with three simultaneous big film sets. Andrzej Wajda (“The Promised Land,” “Walesa. Man of Hope”) worked on his new film “Powidoki”; Opus Film, the producer of “Ida”, organized for an Israeli partner eleven-day shoot to a film set in 1970s – “Past Life,” directed by Avi Nesher; and American director Martha Coolidge (“The Prince and Me,” TV shows “Sex and the City,” “The Twilight Zone,” “Weeds”) filmed her project “Music, War and Love,” whose producer is among others Fred Roos known from such films as “Apocalypse Now,” “The Godfather” or “Lost in Translation.” The picture features Adelaide Clemens (“The Great Gatsby”), Connie Nielsen (“Gladiator”), Toby Sebastian (“Game of Thrones”) and Stellan Skarsgård (“Nymphomaniac”).

The end of the year was also very successful for Malopolska and Krakow. Two movies were filmed in the region – an American-British biography of Martin Luther commissioned by PBS with Padraic Delaney (“The Wind that Shakes the Barley,” “The Tudors”) in the main role; and a feature titled “True Crimes” starring two-time winner of a Golden Globe – Jim Carrey (“The Truman Show,” “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” “The Mask”) as the protagonist. The crew spent 32 days on the set in Krakow. The picture was directed by Greek Alexandros Avranas (“Miss Violence”), written by Jeremy Brock (“Brideshead Revisited,” “The Last King of Scotland”), and produced by Brett Ratner (“X-Men 3: the Last Stand,” TV series “Rush Hour”). Accompanying Jim Carrey were Charlotte Gainsbourg (“Nymphomaniac,” “Antichrist”); Marton Csokas (“The Lord of the Rings: the Return of the King,” “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”) and Polish actors Agata Kulesza (“Ida”) and Robert Wieckiewicz (“Walesa. Man of Hope”).

The first information about productions planned for 2016 has already been released. In January, Krakow will host the crew of French black comedy “Grand Froid,” Gérard Pautonnier's debut featuring Jean-Pierre Bacri (“The Taste of Others,” “Let It Rain”), Olivier Gourmet (“Rosetta,” “The Son”) and Arthur Dupond (“Bus Palladium”). The project won the first edition of the Krakow International Film Fund.

Press Tour: Cinemax renews 'The Knick,' creators discuss the journey from 'Shaggy Dog'

Press Tour: Cinemax renews 'The Knick,' creators discuss the journey from 'Shaggy Dog'
Cinemax preceded its Thursday (July 10) Television Critics Association press tour panel for the 1900 NYC medical drama "The Knick" by announcing that it has already renewed the series, which won't premiere until August 8. The 10-episode renewal wasn't a huge shock, because "The Knick" is a very important series for Cinemax as it continues its transition from Skinemax to the fun action-fueled destination for shows like "Strike Back" and "Banshee" to the kind of network capable of luring talent like director Steven Soderbergh and star Clive Owen. The fact is that as long as Owen and Soderbergh were willing to be involved in a second season, a renewal was inevitable and it sounds like the not-particularly-retired Oscar winner is, indeed, eager to continue. "Yeah. I’m going to do all ten," Soderbergh said on the panel, responding to a question about the recent trend of TV directors taking extended duty on shows,

Vithaya Pansringarm on acting opposite Ryan Gosling in Only God Forgives

The Thai actor's sword-wielding policeman is one of the nastiest characters in recent cinema

Hi Vithaya, your role in Only God Forgives is one of the creepiest and nastiest in recent cinema. What qualified you for the part?

I run a successful ballet school in Bangkok, my wife is a ballet teacher, and I have managed the school for 19 years.

Oh. So how did you get into acting?

This is how I start my acting career. About five years ago, I went to a party and a cameraman saw me and asked me to act in his short film. I said sure, why not? After that the same cameraman got a job on a Hollywood movie shooting in Thailand. That movie was looking for a character of a king, but the director couldn't find anyone she liked. They said: "Hey, why don't you come in and read the dialogue."That's

'Secret Princes' Season 2 sneak peek: Royals go undercover

When TLC sent four foreign royals undercover in Atlanta in 2012 to woo women who didn't know about their titles, the resulting reality experiment, "Secret Princes," turned out to be an engaging guilty pleasure (if you believe in such things) that resembled a real-life version of the Julia Stiles early '00s classic teen movie "The Prince and Me."

Because such a fantastic concept should not be wasted, the network ordered another round of episodes, set to debut Friday (Oct. 25), featuring a new batch of noble men in a brand-new city: Austin, Texas. The four men looking for love in Season 2 include Prince Alexander of Russia, 34, a direct descendant of the House of Romanov who works as a photographer, Prince Lorenzo de Medici of Italy, 37, heir to the House of Medici, Lord James Rennell of Rodd, 34, a baron in the U.K. who works at an event planning company, and the Honourable Oliver Plunkett of Dunsany,

It seems the Warrior Princess will never die (good news to those of us who still haven't gotten over the series finale). This was supposed to be the last year the Annual Xena: Warrior Princess Convention would be held, but fan outcry caused its organizers to relent, and it's official: there will be a Xena Con 2013. After that, who knows?

[DVD Review] Exam

Eight candidates are led into a room for the final portion of what appears to be a rigorous job application process. They have a piece of paper, and one question before them to answer. They are given explicit instructions on several things that will get them disqualified, including leaving the room. A clock is set eighty minutes and the events of Exam begin. The problem is, when they turn their paper over, it is completely blank.

The candidates soon realize that they will have to work together, at the very least, to figure out what the question is. Of course, this is an application process and "there can only be one", so as the tentative alliance forms it is very clear that their ties to each other aren't much thicker than the blank pieces of paper in front of them.

Serving as the directorial debut of Stuart Hazeldine, the film
