We are pleased to present the trailer for IFC Films' "The Pleasure of Being Robbed" starring Eleonore Hendricks, Batman, Lowell the Dog, Dawn Glickman, Sam Lisenco, Gary Greenblatt, Alex Greenblatt and Wayne Chin. Although the film has been released on October 3rd, we figured the Red Bucket Films production's trailer is definitely worth a visit. Joshua Safdie makes his feature-length directorial debut on the comedy and writes the story and screenplay with Eleonore Hendricks, Andy Spade and Anthony Sperduti.

The story of a young woman whose compulsive curiosity leads to bold, elaborate acts of theft, Josh Safdie's The Pleasure Of Being Robbed is a beguiling blend of casual comedy and subtle, unsettling mystery. The film, the debut feature by 24-year-old New York writer-director Safdie, was the Closing Night film of the 2008 Cannes Directors' Fortnight and the only film from the U.S. to play in that section. »

IFC Films picks up 'Melancholy'

18 June 2008 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- IFC Films has nabbed worldwide rights to writer-director Barry Jenkins' romantic drama Medicine for Melancholy.

Jenkins' feature debut, which premieres Friday in competition at the L.A. Film Festival, revolves around an African-American couple dealing with issues of class and identity in San Francisco's black community. Wyatt Cenac (Fox's King of the Hill) and Tracey Heggins star.

The film, produced by Justin Barber and Cherie Saulter, "will not only inspire and ignite great discussions among the African-American community but is sure to engage audiences across the globe," said IFC Entertainment president Jonathan Sehring.

IFC mainly acquires U.S. or North American rights to features, but has recently started acquiring more worldwide rights to American indies like the Cannes fest entry The Pleasure of Being Robbed and Medicine. Sehring said that while there are no plans for an IFC international theatrical distribution or sales arm, in-house employees may pursue overseas sales for Medicine to foreign distributors after it hits the international fest circuit.

Sehring referenced IFC parent Cablevision's acquisition of Sundance Channel and said his company was looking at new distribution models for indie cinema, hinting that a global network is one possible initiative being explored. »

IFC nabs 'Robbed' before Cannes

28 April 2008 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

In the first acquisition news to emerge from the 2008 Festival de Cannes lineup, IFC Entertainment is in final negotiations to pick up "The Pleasure of Being Robbed", the only American film selected for the Directors' Fortnight section.

Writer-director Joshua Safdie's comedic and atmospheric feature debut follows a young woman (co-screenwriter Eleonore Hendricks) as she travels through New York City, finding pleasure in "borrowing" the belongings of others. Submarine Entertainment is repping sales of the film, which is produced by Safdie, Brett Jutkiewicz, Zach Treitz and Sammy Lisenco.

The feature, shot in an impressionistic style on 16mm film, premiered at last month's South by Southwest Film Festival. It will serve as the Fortnight's closing-night film. "Robbed" also marks a final triumph for SXSW producer Matt Dentler, who recently exited the festival to join Cinetic Media's digital-rights management arm. »

Directors' Fortnight speaks fluent French

25 April 2008 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

PARIS -- The Directors' Fortnight will have a decidedly Gallic flavor as it celebrates its 40th anniversary in Cannes this year, with more than half its 22 titles produced or co-produced by France and just one title hailing from the U.S.

The sidebar will open with Jerzy Skolimowski's Franco-Polish co-production Four Nights With Anna.

Bertrand Bonello's De la Guerre (On War) will bring Mathieu Amalric and Asia Argento back to the Croisette after a high-profile presence at last year's fest.

Claire Simon's Les Bureaux de Dieu explores women's sexual freedom at a family planning center and stars festival veteran Nathalie Baye alongside Nicole Garcia, Beatrice Dalle and Isabelle Carre.

Other all-French productions include Cannes newcomer Nicola Sornaga's Monsieur Morimoto and Croisette vets Jean-Marie and Arnaud Larrieu's Le Voyage aux Pyrenees.

French-language films include Algerian director Rabah Ameur-Zaimeche's Le Dernier Maquis and a pair of France-Belgium co-productions from Belgian helmers: Bouli Lanners with Eldorado and Joachim Lafosse with Eleve Libre.

French minority co-productions include Filipino director Raya Martin's Now Showing and Iranian Saman Salour's Lonely Tune of Tehran.

"This simply demonstrates the strong presence of French producers all over the world. Does the fact that a film has a French producer take away its nationality? I don't think so," artistic director Olivier Pere said in an interview.

The U.S. is conspicuous by its absence in this year's Fortnight, with only Josh Safdie's whimsical first feature, closing night film The Pleasure of Being Robbed, programmed in the main selection.

Among the special screenings and events scheduled to celebrate the parallel sidebar's 40th anniversary is the May 18 unspooling of director Olivier Jahan's 40x15, a history of the sidebar produced by Gaul's MK2. »
