6 April 2017 7:27 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Colcoa is keeping up with the times.

“These two new popular formats offer more opportunities to showcase the creativity of French producers and filmmakers as well as the diversity of French production,” said François Truffart, Colcoa Executive Producer and Artistic Director. “While entertainment is still the key word for the program, with a balanced mix of comedies and dramas, several topical issues will cover the program this year, including the environment, discrimination, racism, terrorism, and the role of the artist in society. More than ever, Colcoa will offer a unique opportunity to see these universal topics from different angles.”

Rome – Paolo Virzi’s “Like Crazy,” a road movie about two women who escape from a mental institution in Tuscany, took top honors Monday night at Italy’s 61st David di Donatello Awards, the country’s equivalent of the Oscars. The film took home five statuettes, including prizes in the key categories of best picture, best director, and best actress, which went to Valeria Bruni Tedeschi.

The evening’s two other big winners were “Indivisible,” a neo-Gothic drama set in Naples and directed by Edoardo De Angelis, about teenage conjoined-twin sisters with beautiful voices, and Matteo Rovere’s “Italian Race,” set in the world of Gt racing. “Indivisible” took five nods, including for best screenplay, producer, and supporting actress, and “Italian Race” won six statuettes, including best actor for Stefano Accorsi, cinematography, and editing.

Virzì’s “Like Crazy” launched last year from Cannes and sold widely internationally, with Strand Releasing »

Remembering Anton Yelchin on His Birthday: 9 of the Late Actor's Films You Can Watch Right Now, Plus 1 More Still to Come

11 March 2017 5:00 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Anton Yelchin's life was tragically cut short last June, his death coming before he had received the widespread credit for his acting chops that he so rightly deserved. He was best known to theatergoers for his essential role as Chekov in the rebooted Star Trek franchise, but at 27 he had already amassed quite the resume with a wide range of roles, from the dark misfit-teen comedy Charlie Bartlett to the star-crossed romance Like Crazy and the gritty white-knuckle thriller Green Room. The Russian-born and Los Angeles-bred actor made his onscreen debut at 11 in an episode of ER and never looked back, spending the rest of his life doing what he knew as a child he was »

Berlinale: Ad Vitam to Produce Bruni Tedeschi Pic, Acquires Lelio’s ‘Fantastic Woman’ (Exclusive)

11 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Berlin– Ad Vitam, one of France’s leading independent distribution companies, is set to produce Valeria Bruni Tedeschi’s “Les estivants,” the actress-turned-director’s follow-up to “A Castle in Italy” (pictured above) which competed at Cannes

Launched in 1998 by Gregory Gajos, Arthur Hallereau and Alexandra Henochsberg, Ad Vitam has been raising its profile and scope lately with the launch of sales outfit Alma Cinema in partnership with Charles Gillibert’s production company CG Cinema (“Mustang,” “Personal Shopper”).

Although Ad Vitam is usually mainly involved in distribution and co-production, it boarded Tedeschi’s project as a full-on producer because of Henochsberg’s close relationship with Tedeschi. A popular actress in Europe, Tedeschi recently starred in Paolo Virzi’s “Like Crazy,” which played at Directors’ Fortnight in cannes, and Bruno Dumont’s “Slack Bay,” a competition entry at Cannes in 2016.

Budgeted at 6 million euros ($6.8 million), “Les estivants” was written by Bruni Tedeschi »

'Newness': Film Review | Sundance 2017

1 February 2017 3:37 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

In Drake Doremus' 2011 breakthrough Like Crazy, a beautiful pair of young lovers (Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones) face a situation in which they should break up, but don't — creating much misery, however bittersweet and beautifully photographed, for themselves. In Newness, the director (and his Like Crazy co-writer Ben York Jones) again puts a young couple through self-inflicted trials, inspiring viewers who've been around the block to wince at the pain sure to come. While it (appropriately) lacks the first-love poetry of the earlier film, the picture benefits from two strong lead performances (from Nicholas Hoult and Laia Costa) »

Back in 2011, director Drake Doremus made a splash at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival with his indie romance Like Crazy, which won the Grand Jury Prize in the U.S. Dramatic category. Since then, his films Breathe In and Equals haven’t really reached the same level of praise. But with his latest work behind the […]

Sundance Review: ‘Newness’ is a Stagnant Look at Modern Love

25 January 2017 6:43 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Drake Doremus‘ assured and incisive take on long-distance love, Like Crazy, won Sundance’s top prize six years ago. If his latest sci-fi romance Equals did not meet its high expectations, it certainly inspired the director to go back to the basics of the winning formula that heralded his break-out.

Newness, his latest handheld-shot drama, captures love in the age of Tinder hook-ups (replaced here by the fictitious app Winx) and millennials completely turning their backs on commitment by replacing it with open-ended relationships. The two millennial leads this time are Nicholas Hoult as Martin, a pharmacist addicted to his hook-up app, and Laia Costa as Gabi, a Barcelona-born physical therapist that uses the same app to hook-up and, as she says, to “find someone that can actually make me come.”

Both coming from failed Winx hook-ups that same evening, the two meet and grab some drinks. After some loose and effortless banter, »

‘Newness’ Review: Nicholas Hoult And Laia Costa Can’t Save Drake Doremus’ Dating App Drama — Sundance 2017

24 January 2017 3:10 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Have you guys heard about millennials? Well, Drake Doremus has — he’s one of them! — and he’s got some thoughts about all that random sex they’re having. Doremus, who won Sundance with 2011’s sensitively simple “Like Crazy,” has never met a flimsy romantic premise he couldn’t populate with beautiful people and banal observations. It was only a matter of time before this prolific indie auteur turned his eye toward the hedonistic thunderdome of dating apps.

Set in contemporary Los Angeles, “Newness” tells the story of two horny (but also sad) twentysomethings who mysteriously regain their feelings and fall in love, causing tensions between themselves and their society. This is not to be confused with Doremus’ last film, the sci-fi slog “Equals,” which was set in an emotionless utopia where two horny (but also sad) twentysomethings mysteriously regain their feelings and fall in love, causing tensions between them and their society. »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Newness’

23 January 2017 3:12 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Newness,” Drake Doremus’ drama about love in the age of the endless sex-shopping-mall hookup app, is a movie that wants to look and feel like “life.” It’s shot with a handheld camera, and with a lot of quick cuts and natural light — though this translates into every room being cast in slate-gray shadow, as if life were the ultimate designer beer commercial. (One of the film’s producers is Ridley Scott, who along with his brother Tony pioneered this sort of thing making British TV commercials in the 1980s; it’s nice to know that some traditions live on.) Gliding through the murk of existential images are a lot of very pretty millennials, notably the two leads: Nicholas Hoult as the world’s sexiest pharmacist, and Laia Costa as an expatriate from Barcelona who’s working as a physical therapist. Tale, pale, and lightly bearded, Hoult looks like Ethan Hawke »

Sundance Past & Present: Seven Hair-Raising Lessons from Returning Filmmakers

19 January 2017 5:13 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Filmmakers around the world harbor the same fantasy: I’m going to make a film so good that it will play the Sundance Film Festival, score rave reviews, sell in an overnight bidding war for a multi-million-dollar minimum guarantee to a major theatrical buyer, open in packed theaters around the country, and launch my career.

Right.

Truth is, this hardly ever happens. We checked in with a group of lauded Sundance filmmakers, all who are returning to the festival this year with new films, to glean what they learned the hard way from their Sundance experiences.

1. Manage expectations.

Alex Ross Perry (“Golden Exits”): My first time was with “Listen Up Philip” [2014], which was a huge step forward from my last movie, “The Color Wheel,” which I made for $25,000 with all my friends. This was a sizable, produced movie with a cast of well-known people [Jason Schwartzman, Elizabeth Moss, Jonathan Pryce]. The first days was all »
