Jeff Ivers Leaving COO Post at Participant Media (Exclusive)

13 July 2015 10:58 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jeff Ivers is stepping down as chief operating officer of Participant Media, the Beverly Hills-based entertainment company that is in the midst of a major organizational makeover.

Ivers departure comes 11 years after he joined founder Jeff Skoll as one of the first employees of Participant, the production outfit that weds film, television and Web content to campaigns for social action.

He becomes the second top executive to leave the company in a little more than three months, following the ousting of CEO Jim Berk, who had alienated many of his employees by hopscotching between strategies and injecting himself into the smallest details of day-to-day operations. A search for a new CEO continues, with Skoll serving as the interim head of the company.

Ivers did not explain his immediate plans, though in a draft of a statement that Participant planned to issue Monday he called working at the company “a tremendous »

In 2012, Malala Yousafzai boarded her school bus in the northwest Pakistani district of Swat. The bus would eventually be stopped and a Talaban gunman would ask for her by name, after which he would fire three shots at the then 15-year-old girl. One of the bullets hit the left side of her forehead, traveled under her skin, through the length of her face, into her shoulder. Yousafzai would recover. amz asin="0316322423" size="small"The reason for the assassination attempt stemmed from an anonymous blog post she wrote in 2009 for the BBC, detailing her life in Pakistan under Taliban occupation, their attempts to take control of the valley, and her views on promoting education for girls in the Swat Valley. But it doesn't stop there. Following the blog post, "New York Times" journalist Adam B. Ellick and Irfan Ashraf made a documentary titled "Class Dismissed: Malala's Story" (watch it at »

He Named Me Malala (2015) Movie Trailer: In-Depth Documentary from Davis Guggenheim

22 June 2015 9:55 AM, PDT | Film-Book | See recent Film-Book news »

He Named Me Malala Trailer. Davis Guggenheim‘s He Named Me Malala (2015) movie trailer stars Malala Yousafzai and Jon StewartHe Named Me Malala‘s plot synopsis: “A look at the events leading up to the Taliban’s attack on the young Pakistani school girl, Malala Yousafzai, for speaking out on girls’ education and the aftermath, including her speech to the United Nations.”

The trailer for this documentary is almost too saccharine to take seriously, were it not for the very impressive accomplishments of this young, brave girl, and the the context surrounding her traumatic past. It’s an important story to tell as often as necessary for those still ignorant on the subject to learn of it. If this helps at least a thousand more people get some slight context regarding the injustices of that particular part of the world, how they came about, what daily life is like »

Watch: Inspiring Trailer For Malala Yousafzai Documentary 'He Named Me Malala'

19 June 2015 4:54 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Malala Yousafzai likely didn't think of herself as an activist when she decided to write about living under Taliban rule at the age of 12. But that story, penned for the BBC, made waves around the world and it also made her an enemy, and in 2009, a gunman attempted to end her life as she went to school. She survived the horrific attack, gained even more headlines, and won the Nobel Peace Prize. Far from stopping her message of empowerment to women and children, Malala embraced her position as a speaker and symbol of influence, and now a new documentary introduces us to the young woman behind the celebrity. Directed by Davis Guggenheim ("An Inconvenient Truth"), "He Named Me Malala" gets up close and personal with Malala Yousafzai and her family, and explores the life of Malala who has inspired people around the world. Here's the official synopsis:  He Named Me Malala »

Film Review: ‘Ice and the Sky’

1 June 2015 7:21 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“My name is Claude Lorius,” says the subject of Luc Jacquet’s “Ice and the Sky” more than once during the well-intentioned enviro-advocacy film that closed this year’s Cannes Film Festival. Only, the voice we hear on the soundtrack belongs not to Lorius — the noted French glaciologist — but rather to voice actor Michel Papineschi, while the marvelous archive footage we see onscreen has been similarly manhandled in an apparent bid to make Lorius’ arctic adventures seem more dramatic, when in fact no such help was needed. The end result is a colossally overproduced white elephant of a movie that obfuscates both its own protagonist and his important message with layer upon layer of unnecessary “style.” (Tellingly, the word “documentary” appears nowhere in the film’s publicity materials.) French audiences — who have a high tolerance for overly decorous nature films — may flock to this Oct. 21 release, but “Ice” will need »

Cannes: New Breed of Producer Mines Niche Films That Studios Are Snubbing

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

While the topic of wealth inequality is a hot-button issue, the indie market place has blossomed as a new breed of producer — several are independently wealthy, all are smart, savvy — has stepped in. They are making the kinds of mid-budget movies that Hollywood isn’t making anymore, self-financing their own projects and making an effort to fill the void created by the studios’ overall change in strategy to one that focuses on tentpoles.

Producers like Megan Ellison, Jeff Skoll, Gigi Pritzker and Teddy Schwarzman have lately been joined by new players like Monika Bacardi and Todd Courtney, with their own philosophy about filmmaking, as well as specific criteria about the kinds of projects they choose to develop and, ultimately, produce.

Ellison is famed for working with strong filmmakers, and her track record over just the past five years includes collaborations with the Coen brothers, Kathryn Bigelow, Spike Jonze, Wong Kar Wai, »

The Emperor's New Clothes review

20 April 2015 7:09 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Russell Brand and Michael Winterbottom team up for a compelling documentary that asks sizeable questions ahead of the UK general election.

Back in 2004, Michael Moore scored the biggest box office hit of his career. Fahrenheit 9/11 was Moore's reaction to the horrific events of September 11th 2001, and specifically the political changes that followed in its aftermath. Savagely critical of the George W Bush administration, the film also leaked online, and was widely seen ahead of the 2004 Us presidential election.

In said election, Bush grew his vote, won a majority in the popular ballot, increased his electoral vote tally, and was re-elected as President of the United States.

Why? Well, amongst the many reasons, maybe Moore was preaching a little to the converted. And the same may well be said of Russell Brand and Michael Winterbottom's new documentary, The Emperor's New Clothes.

At heart, this is an extension of the political »

Cannes: Thierry Fremaux Shares Secrets Behind the 2015 Selection

16 April 2015 5:06 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After announcing 43 films selected to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival earlier today, festival delegate general Thierry Fremaux sat down with Variety to parse some of the artistic and personal decisions his team faces, explaining how the committee justifies the 2015 lineup’s seemingly uneven distribution of nationalities (with France and Italy faring best) and a mostly male-dominated pool of directors: Just six of today’s new titles were directed by women, only two of them in official competition.

Praising the previously announced opening-night selection “Standing Tall” as “magnifique” in its own right, Fremaux insisted that audiences not fixate on the gender of its director, Emmanuelle Bercot, stressing how the film responds to the Charlie Hebdo tragedy and touches on issues important to this year’s program. Here, Fremaux opens up about the inclusions, omissions and other surprises still in store with Cannes’ 2015 lineup.

Jim Berk Out as CEO of Participant Media After Eight Years (Exclusive)

10 April 2015 11:53 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Participant Media CEO Jim Berk resigned Friday after more than eight years atop the multimedia company, with founder Jeff Skoll announcing he would serve as temporary chief executive of the company he built to pursue both profits and social change.

News of Berk’s departure – which took effect immediately — surprised many employees, although tensions had been mounting inside the company as Skoll pushed for quicker expansion into foreign markets and advances by Participant’s television and digital operations.

Variety reported exclusively last month that Skoll had ordered a strategic review of his 11-year-old company, which McKinsey & Co. began last month. He also planned to appoint a board of directors to help the company map a path forward.

Skoll, a 50-year-old tech billionaire and former eBay CEO, had pushed more aggressively for the changes than his chief executive, Berk, according to several sources inside Participant.
