Neon assembling platform to distribute documentaries (exclusive)

Panel hears from passionate advocate of theatrical experience.

Neon is in the early stages of putting together a programme to support what co-founder Tom Quinn referred to as the “sustainable theatrical release” of documentaries.

Quinn (pictured), whose company acquired Tim Wardle’s Sundance Us Documentary Competition selection Three Identical Strangers in January, teased the initiative at a Hollywood panel on the evolution of the industry although he declined to go further, adding that it was still too soon to unveil comprehensive details.

His comments came in a discussion about the non-fiction form as part of the ‘Make it or Break

Indie Spirit Awards: Greta Gerwig, Dee Rees, and Agnés Varda Win Big

Gerwig: Indie Spirit Awards/ The Hollywood Reporter

Saturday’s Indie Spirit Awards were a takedown of sexist bullshit and a celebration of inclusive talent. Hosts John Mulaney (“SNL”) and Nick Kroll (“Big Mouth”) had plenty to say about Hollywood predators at the event in La. “Let’s name some names!” exclaimed Mulaney. And that they did. Their monologue called out men including Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner, Louis C.K. and — of course — Harvey Weinstein. They joked that “the male apology has become an art form,” citing Mario Batali’s apology that ended with a cinnamon bun recipe as particularly egregious.

The pair also mocked men who feel paranoid about interacting with women in the wake of #MeToo, saying that hugs are still okay, but “not the way you’re doing it, pal — all breathy.” “Women, people of color, what have you left us white males?” Kroll asked before answering his own question.

2018 Oscars: How many women were nominated beside the 10 acting contenders (Hint: not enough)

2018 Oscars: How many women were nominated beside the 10 acting contenders (Hint: not enough)
Ten women will always be nominated for Oscars: five for Best Actress and another five for Best Supporting Actress. At the 2018 Oscars, Frances McDormand, who won her second Best Actress Academy Award for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” asked all the female nominees to stand. As you can see from the video above, she asked rival acting nominee Meryl Streep (“The Post”) to lead the way and this 21-time Oscar nominee obliged. Besides the other eight actresses nominated, how many other women were on their feet in the Dolby theater?

Of the 20 non-gender specific categories, women were contenders in 17 of them; they were shut out of Original Score (5 men), Sound Editing (9 men) and Visual Effects (20 men). As you can see below, 47 women other than actresses were nominated at the 90th Academy Awards. Of these, only four won Oscars. By comparison, 151 men other than actors were nominated and 32 took home Oscars.

Indie Spirits Reward Diversity with ‘Get Out,’ ‘The Big Sick,’ ‘A Fantastic Woman,’ and More

Indie Spirits Reward Diversity with ‘Get Out,’ ‘The Big Sick,’ ‘A Fantastic Woman,’ and More
The year’s Film Independent Spirit Awards were a celebration of inclusivity. “Get Out” — the first debut feature from a black writer-director to cross the $100 million box office mark — won the two top prizes, Best Feature and Best Director. Jordan Peele received a standing ovation when accepting the latter from Spike Lee. “Let’s make no mistake, I would not be standing here if it wasn’t for this man,” said Peele. In his three-decade-plus career, Lee never received a Best Director Oscar nomination; Peele will compete for the statuette tomorrow.

“This project didn’t start as a statement” on the racial disparity present in America, Peele continued. “I realized that there are people who are locked up for smoking less weed than I was smoking than I wrote the movie. And so I wanted to deliver that truth” referencing the broken criminal justice system, a theme explored by Spirit

Film Independent Spirit Awards Lean Into Future Oscar Winners, Including ‘Get Out’ and ‘Three Billboards’

Film Independent Spirit Awards Lean Into Future Oscar Winners, Including ‘Get Out’ and ‘Three Billboards’
Amid raucous jokes about Harvey Weinstein and the crazy political climate, the mood was upbeat at the 33rd Independent Spirit Awards — held in a gusty tent at the beach in Santa Monica the Saturday before the Oscars. As expected, the big winner was “Get Out,” which took home Best Feature and Best Director.

While a string of recent Spirit Award winners have gone on to repeat at the Oscars — as many pundits think “Get Out” will — the fact that “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” and “The Shape of Water” were not in the running for Best Feature gave the horror thriller an open lead.

“We are at the beginning of a renaissance right now,” said writer-director Jordan Peele, who shot the $4.5 million Universal film in 23 days. “Long live the Independent Spirits, hooray!” added producer Jason Blum. Peele also thanked presenter Spike Lee: “I would not be standing here if

Indie Spirit Awards: Restrained #MeToo and Time’s Up Conversations Look to the Future and ‘Manifesting Change in Deeper Ways’

Indie Spirit Awards: Restrained #MeToo and Time’s Up Conversations Look to the Future and ‘Manifesting Change in Deeper Ways’
Surprising no one in attendance, Film Independent Spirit Awards hosts Nick Kroll and John Mulaney dug into the current #MeToo and Time’s Up climate during their whipsmart, whirlwind opening monologue. The duo named names of accused offenders – Harvey Weinstein to Kevin Spacey, Brett Ratner to Woody Allen – and turned some of the more painful elements of the biggest story of the season into a canny punchline. But most winners and stars seemed eager to move past chatter and onto the future at the annual event.

While the audience at the beachside ceremony was ready to laugh – a gag about literally burying Weinstein in an “Xxl Unmarked Grave” was initially met with groans, then giggles – their approach was more measured and cautious during speeches and interviews.

In his opening remarks, Film Independent president Josh Welsh acknowledged that it had been “a rough year” for many, but he remained optimistic about

2018 Independent Spirit Awards live blog: ‘Get Out,’ Frances McDormand (‘Three Billboards’), Timothee Chalamet (‘Call Me By Your Name’) win on way to Oscars
The 2018 Independent Spirit Awards were handed out on Oscar eve, March 3, during a lively ceremony presided over by the comedy team of Nick Kroll and John Mulaney. These long-time comedy collaborators returned to host the 33rd Indie Spirits after a well-received turn at the podium last year.

Many Academy Awards hopefuls are in contention for these prizes bestowed by Film Independent. Luca Guadagnino‘s romance “Call Me by Your Name” has a leading six nominations and was locked in a tight race for Best Picture with Jordan Peele‘s horror satire “Get Out,” which won. Also in the hunt was Greta Gerwig‘s coming-of-age memoir “Lady Bird” is in the mix as well. The two Oscar frontrunners — “The Shape of Water” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” — were inexplicably snubbed in this top race.
