2016 Sundance Film Festival: Eric Lavallee’s Top 5 Most Anticipated Films

21 January 2016 9:30 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Unlike some other media outlets who are blasphemously drawing up “most anticipated” Sundance lists that come across as a simple rehash of the entire feature film line-up, over here, Nicholas Bell and I pare down this shared enthusiasm in what are individual must see top five lists. The catch: select five films from five sections. In the decade I’ve been coming down here, the U.S Dramatic Comp section was the sure-fire bet for treasures, the Premieres section offered heavyweights and misfires while you had to look elsewhere for the gems. Last year’s Next was where all the riches were at. James White, Entertainment, Tangerine , Nasty Baby, and the upcoming Take Me to the River reminded me why the Next section has become a robust category in itself but surprisingly it might be the Premieres program (half a dozen offerings I could easily see in Cannes) is poised to get the major attention. »

2016 Sundance Film Festival: Nicholas Bell’s Top 5 Most Anticipated Films

21 January 2016 9:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Despite the initial anticipation or dismay for every annual major film festival line-up, Sundance remains an inherent conjurer of new breakout talent. Though we prefer the more daring, provocative features which tend to filter through the increasingly visible Next section (last year items like James White, Tangerine, and Nasty Baby premiered there first), Sundance returns with a surprising auteur heavy Premieres section (usually the fest’s weakest line-up), featuring names like Kelly Reichardt, Whit Stillman, Anne Fontaine, Ira Sachs, and Kenneth Lonergan, among others. And that’s just the most superficial layer of what promises to be a notable year. Here are five of my most anticipated items this year, each from a different program.

5. The Greasy Strangler – Dir. Jim Hosking

Midnight Program

Even though this year’s Midnight section features new offerings from Kevin Smith and Rob Zombie, a definite standout is the directorial debut by Jim Hosking. Described »

10 Hot Titles From the Sundance Film Festival

19 January 2016 4:54 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

On paper,  nearly every film scheduled to screen at this year’s Sundance Film Festival looks like a breakout. That’s why predicting the titles that will draw the most interest from studios and score the biggest deals is nearly impossible. You don’t know which films will deliver on the hype and which will wither under the spotlight as much of Hollywood descends on Park City hoping to find the next “Little Miss Sunshine” or “Brooklyn.”

That said, here are 10 films that are certain to draw interest from bidders by virtue of their casts, their concepts, or the director calling the shots.

Christine

Director: Antonio Campos

Stars: Rebecca Hall, Tracy Letts, Michael C. Hall

Sales: UTA, Wme/Great Point Media

Why Buyers Are Circling: The story of an ambitious journalist struggling to make a name for herself in the 1970s world of TV news showcases a tour de force performance from Hall. »

Borderline Presents launches for Sundance

19 January 2016 11:02 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Borderline Films co-founders Josh Mond, Sean Durkin and Antonio Campos have unveiled a label to board projects as executive producers starting with Park City selection The Eyes Of My Mother.

The black-and-white drama explores the dark obsessions of a lonely young woman in the wake of a tragedy in the countryside and premieres in Next on Friday.

Nicolas Pesce presented the concept for his directorial debut to Mond while working on the latter’s Sundance 2015 Next Audience Award winner James White.

Borderline oversaw the process from development through post-production. Jacob Wasserman, Schulyer Weiss and Max Born are the producers.

“We started Borderline Films so that we had each other’s support and felt safe making the films we wanted to make,” said Mond on behalf of the group.

“We’ve been fortunate enough to have all made our first feature and want to use our experience to provide that same kind of support to help other like-minded »

Buyers eye Sundance discoveries; 34 titles to watch

17 January 2016 10:48 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

As Sundance and Slamdance prepare to kick off this week some insiders have predicted there could be a surge of activity from digital platforms besides Netflix and Amazon Studios.

The latter two are expected to be active – and indeed have already taken a few Park City titles off the table – yet there is talk of other well-capitalised companies mulling over a splashy entry into the acquisitions arena.

The Sundance Film Festival runs from January 21-31.

Nimble digital platforms challenge traditional buyers

Faced with sharp digital rivals unencumbered by the need to spend on costly P&A and plugged into transactional data that enables them to target audiences with forensic precision, theatrical buyers will need to be on their toes.

The distribution landscape is crowded and unforgiving, yet creative marketing campaigns can pave the way to success.

Among others, A24 did it with Ex Machina and Fox Searchlight reaped rewards with its 2015 Sundance pick-up Brooklyn, earning Oscar nods »

Most Anticipated of Sundance 2016

14 January 2016 3:35 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In about a week I’ll be back in Utah once again to cover the Sundance Film Festival for my 2nd year. Last year I got to see many dope films at the festival, including ones that would go on to remain among my favorites of the year like Slow West, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, The Diary of a Teenage Girl and Cop Car. So maybe it’s greedy to expect to see more dope films, but I expect to see more dope films this year. Here are a few that have me the most giddy.

Green Room

Directed by Jeremy Saulnier

Section: Spotlight

I cannot put into words how excited I am to see Green Room. Jeremy Saulnier’s Blue Ruin was my favorite film of 2014. Watching that film, I felt like I was watching the birth of a great American filmmaker. His followup finds a »
