Camera d'Or disqualifies 3 directors

14 May 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

CANNES -- Three films, including Tommy Lee Jones' Competition entry The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, have been disqualified from competing for the Camera d' Or, a spokesperson from the Camera d' Or office confirmed Saturday. James Marsh's Un Certain Regard entry The King and Karin Albou's Critics' Week entry La Petite Jerusalem also have been taken out of the running for the prize for best first feature film after it was confirmed that all three of the helmers have directed films for the small screen, which violates qualification rules. "They were withdrawn because the directors have previously done films for television," the spokesperson said. "Verification was ongoing when the festival started, and then we realized these weren't first films." »

Four increasing funds for movies, drama

28 April 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

LONDON -- Channel Four chief executive Andy Duncan pledged to pump additional cash into movies and drama at the broadcaster Wednesday. Duncan, speaking at an evening reception to herald the Channel's three Festival de Cannes entries and part of its upcoming movie production slate, told a room packed with British movie execs and stars the broadcaster would provide an undisclosed amount of extra cash for its drama and movie output this year. He said the extra cash would be in addition to the channel's annual £10 million budget and would partly be made available from cash freed up by the broadcaster's failure to renew cricket rights. "We will be making more cash available and we are committed to supporting new talent," said Duncan. On hand to hear the announcement was Pathe U.K. managing director Francois Ivernel and his deputy Cameron McCracken, indie producers Andrew Eaton and Andrea Calderwood, U.K. Film Council chief executive John Woodward, Forrest Whittaker and the cast of hit Channel Four shows Green Wing and No Angels. Alongside Channel Four head of film and drama Tessa Ross, Duncan told the industry partygoers that he wanted to make FilmFour the first stop for British talent, declaring it more attractive for such talent than the BBC because "we have an edge that the BBC doesn't have." FilmFour has three directorial debut movies selected in various sidebars of the upcoming Cannes shindig including James Marsh's The King, starring Gael Garcia Bernal, William Hurt and Laura Harring in Un Certain Regard. »
