Formerly referred to as 'Paris I'll Kill You' the new and upcoming horror anthology 'Fear Paris' has been on the radar for nearly 4 years now. Back in the day it was a planned 10 segment anthology with a whole host of great genre directors at the helm each taking on their own tale. 'Splice' director Vincenzo Natali was already talking about his planned segment 'Ready to Eat'. Now here we are in early 2014 and it seems only Joe Dante ('Gremlins') and Xavier Gens ('Frontier(s)') remain from the original directorial lineup. 'Iron Sky' helmer Timo Vuorensola has joined the project and now a new sales trailer has finally been made public with the promise that the project will officially slip into production this Summer/Autumn time, with casting already underway. »

After the likes of V/H/S/ and The ABCs of Death, it seems the anthology horror is back in business and it's now been revealed that directors Joe Dante (Gremlins), Xavier Gens (Hitman) and Timo Vuorensola (Iron Sky) are set to contribute to the "genre bending" fantasy, horror and sci-fi anthology Fear Paris.
Coming from the producers of Paranormal Activity, Insidious, and The Iceman, Fear Paris is described as "an ambitious new film of unique interconnected stories exploring the dark underbelly of the city of lights". It's said that two further filmmakers will join the project before production gets underway in the summer, however the official website lists another four directors in Richard Raaphorst (Frankenstein's Army), Christian Alvart (Pandorum), Eron Sheean (Errors of the Human Body) and music video director Joern Heitmann.

Dark gothic cityscape, an accordion, a mime, this is most definitely Paris. The teaser trailer for Fear Paris, a horror anthology from directorial trio Joe Dante (Gremlins), Xavier Gens (Hitman) and TimoVuorensola (Iron Sky). Based on this teaser, which isn’t actually of footage from the film as that is yet to start shooting, the film has the potential to be phenomenal. The trailer below presents us with a short story in and of itself as we see a group of mimes, with the ability to use their powers to create invisible weapons, go in search of their lost tongues. That in itself is a wonderful premise, and the aesthetics are very engaging.
Here’s the official press release:

Crowdfunding films in Europe is still in its infancy, but some enterprising producers have launched campaigns, using a few opportunities not yet available in the U.S. — and are facing a different set of challenges.
American filmmakers have mainly used reward- or prize-based campaigns on such sites as Indiegogo and Kickstarter, which some EU filmmakers use, and there are also country-specific sites like Touscoprod in France and Startnext in Germany. (For EU filmmakers, crowdfunding is usually a local affair, often limited to five-figure campaigns for niche interests or small populations within any given country.) Europe also has donation crowdfunding (with no rewards at all) and equity crowdfunding (soon to begin Stateside), in which investors take a stake in the film as they would a share in a company.
But because there are a limited number of equity crowdfunding investors allowed in Europe at the moment (a maximum 149 per country) and »

We've seen horror anthologies in the form of V/H/S and The ABCs of Death, but now the terror is headed overseas in a new series of interconnected horror stories called Fear Paris.

After movies like V/H/S and The ABCs of Death, I’m all for horror anthologies abiding by a particular theme. There’s something inherently fun about such a cornucopia of treats, as different directors populate one single film with so many distinctive styles and traits – as long as the segments set the stage for such fun. I’ll always give a horror anthology a try, from Chillerama to The Theatre Bizarre, which is why I’m happy to say we’ve got an exciting anthology coming our way with Fear Paris.
Newly announced, Fear Paris will join the likes of Joe Dante (Gremlins), Xavier Gens (Hitman/Frontier(s)), and Timo Vuorensola (Iron Sky), as they explore the horrific underworld of France’s iconic capital city. Here’s the full press release, accompanied by a tonal teaser below:

In the new documentary Tim’s Vermeer, Texas-based inventor and non-painter Tim Jenison attempts to prove that seventeenth century artist Dutch Johannes Vermeer used an optical device to craft his masterpieces by adopting that technique to painstakingly recreate Vermeer’s The Music Lesson. If that sounds like a snooze on paper, the film is anything but, partly thanks to Penn Jillette’s enthusiastic narration, and his magic-partner Teller’s assured direction. but mostly because of the possibility Jenison might actually drive himself insane attempting to complete his Herculean task. (EW’s Owen Gleiberman recently described the movie as “exquisitely fun” in his “A”-grade review. »

At Rotterdam’s CineMart, industry experts advised filmmakers to start early and make marketing and PR an integral part of any production.
Moderated by Screen International editor Wendy Mitchell, a panel of experts shared tips and strategies on how to cut through the noise for festival and cinema releases and grow new audiences as well.
They started off by entreating filmmakers to secure the most basic of things – stills and other press kit materials.
Laurin Dietrich of Wolf Consultants, which will be handling press for films including Snowpiecer at Berlin this year, said: “It’s shocking how bad the stuff is sometimes.
“You need to think before you start shooting - what are the iconic scenes and key moments from my film that I need. You don’t need an incredibly expensive photographer nor do you need one for the whole shoot - just maybe ten days when the cast is all together that you can’t get »
