Sofia Coppola is having a helluva week. The writer-director’s next film, “The Beguiled,” was just announced as part of Canne’s 2017 lineup, and now comes word that the Oscar winner will be honored at this year’s Provincetown Film Festival (Piff), where she’ll be named Filmmaker on the Edge.

“Now in its 19th year, the festival has a long history of honoring filmmakers whose extraordinary achievement, innovation, and vision pushes the boundaries of their craft,” an press release from Piff details. Producer Christine Vachon (“Carol,” “Boys Don’t Cry”) is among those who have previously received the Filmmaker on the Edge honor.

Set during the Civil War, “The Beguiled” centers on a Confederate girls’ boarding school that is thrown into chaos after taking in an injured Union soldier to convalesce. The star-studded cast includes Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning, and Colin Farrell.

Coppola won an Oscar in 2004 for penning the script for the Tokyo-set love story “Lost in Translation,” which she also helmed. “The Bling Ring,” “Somewhere,” and “The Virgin Suicides” are among her other credits.

Piff also announced that Chloë Sevigny (“Love & Friendship,” “Big Love”) will be recognized with the Excellence in Acting Award. Previous honorees include Tilda Swinton, Patricia Clarkson, and Cynthia Nixon.

“During one of the most galvanizing moments for women in recent political history, we are thrilled to honor two women who have already altered the lens through which we see women in Hollywood,” commented Christine Walker, Executive Director of Piff and CEO of the Provincetown Film Society. “Sofia Coppola is the deft auteur whose imprimatur is unapologetically feminine. Chlöe Sevigny is the fearless iconoclast whose work is remarkable simply because she inhabits it.”

Mr. Roosevelt” will open the fest. Written, directed, and starring Noël Wells (“Master of None”), the comedy centers on a struggling comedian (Wells) “who returns to her college town of Austin, Texas, after a loved one falls ill and must come to terms with her past while staying with her ex-boyfriend and his new girlfriend,” Piff writes. “Mr. Roosevelt” made its world premiere at SXSW, where it won the Louis Black “Lone Star” Award, which recognizes a movie with Texas content.

“We are thrilled to present Noël Wells’ directorial debut for our Opening Night, as it embodies the spirit of our festival, showcasing a smart woman both in front and behind the camera, and is filled with fresh writing and a striking sense of humor,” said Lisa Viola, Piff’s Artistic Director.

Piff runs from June 14-18.

Female Directors Rejected from BAFTA Elevate Program Launch #BAFTAsLucky225

7 April 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Credit: The BAFTA Twitter account

Talk about making lemons into lemonade. More than two hundred women directors have turned their rejection from a prestigious program into an unofficial organization built on mutual support and respect, according to Grazia Daily.

As the source reports, 225 female directors received rejections via email from BAFTA’s Elevate initiative, a program that supports women in “high end TV and features.” (Note: BAFTA is Britain’s counterpart to the Oscars.) However, BAFTA made a mistake and Cc’d everyone on the “Thanks, but no thanks” list instead of Bcc-ing them, giving all the rejected directors access to each other’s names and email addresses.

It’s a snafu on BAFTA’s part, for sure, but it also gave the 225 unaccepted women a chance to comfort one another, network, and organize. “Domestic Policy” writer-director Alicia MacDonald made the first move.

“I contacted two of my director mates who I could see were on the reject email to say ‘commiserations,’” MacDonald told Grazia. “I hesitated before ‘replying all’ — I figured sending a snarky response to BAFTA wasn’t gonna do me any favors but then thought ‘sod it’ and went with ‘Hard luck everyone!’”

“Someone would’ve started the conversation anyway but it was just amazing to watch the flurry of emails that followed — a mix of angry, consolatory, and humorous responses to the gaffe,” she added.

Eventually, the women took their conversation to Facebook and came up with the hashtag #BAFTAsLucky225. Writer-director Diane Jessie Miller (“One by One”) was the first to tweet it:

Some days we get good news, some days we get bad news... and some days bad news turns to good news... #BAFTAsLUCKY225

 — @DianeJMiller

Soon after, #BAFTAsLucky225 took off and reached number nine on Twitter’s trending topics list. Here are a few of our favorite posts:

That moment when you get rejectedfrom @BAFTA and it has Cc'd in all 225 rejected female filmmakers! #oops #baftaelevate #baftaslucky225

 — @evammsig

Big love to the #BAFTAsLUCKY225. Keep at it! #femaledirectors https://t.co/2fifqARMbd

 — @EllieRogers23

I had always hoped to join The Avengers but #BAFTAsLUCKY225 is a pretty sweet club to be in

 — @iamkateherron

“Although it was a mistake… what they have done is incredible! This has brought to the forefront how many talented female directors there are out there,” Miller observed.

Miller is right: There are tons of skilled women directors available. Unfortunately, there is a major disparity between the amount of female filmmakers that can work and those that do work. Citing a Directors UK study, Grazia points out how the number of women directors in Britain has flatlined over the past 10 years. Women represent only 13.6 percent of working film directors in the UK. In effect, that means a man is six times more likely to direct a film than a woman.

And, as we’ve reported, things are still dismal in the U.S. According to a study from USC Annenberg’s Media, Diversity, & Social Change (Mdsc) Initiative, women comprised just four percent of directors on the top movies from 2007 to 2016. The study’s authors concluded that there had been “no meaningful change in the prevalence of female directors” in the past decade.

As frustrating as these numbers are, we’re pleased to see women directors pushing back and speaking publicly about their limited opportunities. The 225 unsuccessful “Elevate” applicants could have accepted this disappointment and simply rolled their eyes at BAFTA’s email screw up. Instead, they decided to band together to share their stories, and make sure the public knows just how many gifted women directors there are in need of opportunity.

Rome – HBO and Italian state broadcaster Rai have teamed up on “My Brilliant Friend,” the hotly anticipated drama series based on the first of four “Neapolitan Novels” written by Italian author Elena Ferrante, whose books have legions of fervent fans around the world.

Bill Paxton took a dark turn in one of his final roles.

The late actor, who died last month, was a master of embodying a wide variety of characters, and his bone-chilling performance as a dirty cop and abusive dad in the Canadian thriller Mean Dreams is no exception.

Pegged as a coming-of-age tale turned crime caper, Mean Dreams — which arrives in theaters on Friday — tells the story of the young romance between two teenagers, Jonas (played by Josh Wiggins) and Casey (played by Sophie Nélisse).

‘Lucky’ Review: 90-Year-Old Harry Dean Stanton Gives a Performance for the Ages in Wry Comedy Co-Starring David Lynch — SXSW 2017

11 March 2017 2:43 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A wise and wistful love letter from one remarkable character actor to another, John Carroll Lynch’s “Lucky” returns 90-year-old Harry Dean Stanton to the dusty desert environs he shuffled through in 1984’s “Paris, Texas,” and offers the rawboned legend one of the best roles he’s had since. Beginning as a broad comedy before blossoming into a wry meditation on death and all the things we leave behind (a transition that kicks into gear when one of Stanton’s old friends shows up and steals the show), Lynch’s directorial debut is a wisp of a movie, blowing across the screen like a tumbleweed, but it’s also the rare portrait of mortality that’s both fun and full of life.

Co-written by actors Drago Sumonja and Logan Sparks (who worked as Stanton’s assistant on “Big Love”), “Lucky” introduces us to its curmudgeonly title character with the kind »
