The CineLink Industry Days is a major hub for Southeast Europe’s film industry, attracting nearly 1,000 professionals to its various events, among them the Co-Production Market, Work-in-Progress, Docu Rough Cut Boutique and the True Stories Market.

Glenn Close movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Fatal Attraction,’ ‘Dangerous Liaisons’

Glenn Close movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Fatal Attraction,’ ‘Dangerous Liaisons’
Glenn Close got her start on Broadway in the ‘70s, appearing in such shows as “Barnum,” and made-for-tv movies including “Too Far to Go” and “The Orphan Train.” She was 35 at the time of her big-screen debut in 1982’s “The World According to Garp.” But Close swiftly made up for lost time by racking up three back-to-back supporting actress Oscar nominations for “Garp,” “The Big Chill” and “The Natural.” With “Fatal Attraction,” “Dangerous Liaisons” and “Albert Nobbs,” she would add three lead actress nods to her total, and currently holds the record as a living actress with the most Academy Award nominations – six – without a win.

That Academy Award losing streak might come at the 2019 Oscars, thanks to Close’s tour de force star performance as the put-upon spouse of a womanizing, self-absorbed novelist (Jonathan Pryce) who wins the Nobel Prize in literature in “The Wife,” opening Aug. 17. An early

Sarajevo Festival Draws the Best of Southeastern Europe

  • Variety
The Sarajevo Film Festival, which was launched in 1995 during the four-year siege of the capital in the midst of the Bosnian War, has always relied on a mixture of self-sufficiency and smart alliances with international partners. It’s a combination that will be deployed again during its 24th edition, running Aug. 10-17.

The event is characterized by its director, Mirsad Purivatra, as an international festival with a focus on a region: Southeast Europe. Purivatra was inspired to adopt a regional focus for Sarajevo after he visited Sweden’s Goteborg Film Festival, with its focus on the Nordic region. This year, Sarajevo’s industry section, CineLink, will look to Scandinavia again for inspiration, this time centered on television drama, an area of growth for both regions.

Norway will be the focus of a panel event as an example of how a local TV industry can transform itself, says Jovan Marjanovic, Sarajevo’s head of industry.

‘Eight Days a Week’ Trailer: Ron Howard’s Beatles Doc Follows The Fab Four’s Tour of the World
Ron Howard may be currently adapting Dan Brown’s novel “Inferno,” with Tom Hanks reprising his role as famous investigative symbologist Robert Langdon, set to be released this October, but he has another film also scheduled to be released in the fall that might turn some heads. Howard’s authorized Beatles documentary “The Beatles: Eight Days a Week” follows the Fab Four’s touring career from 1962-1966, from the Cavern Club through their concert in San Francisco’s Candlestick Park. The film will delve deep into the Beatlemania phenomenon, the relationship between audience and performer, and the socio-political context of the 1960’s that engendered such an important cultural development. It will feature rare and exclusive footage, and was produced with full cooperation from living band members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr as well as widows Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison. Watch a teaser for the film below.

New In Theaters: Spotlight

The new movie Spotlight begins inside a South Boston police station in 1976, where a Catholic bishop is counseling a distraught mother who may or may not bring charges against the priest accused of molesting her son. According to the desk sergeant outside the witness room, the bishop is in the station to “help out,” which in practical terms means not-so-subtly reminding the mother of all the good the church has done and continues to do that could presumably be undone if she pursues legal and very public recourse, as well as offering his hushed assurances that the offending priest will be dealt with and the crime her child has endured will never, ever happen again. Outside the witness room, a police officer speculates to the sergeant about the developing situation that “It’s gonna be hard to keep the papers away from the arraignment.” The sergeant shrugs and shakes his head.

Michael Keaton: his 10 greatest screen characters

From Batman to Birdman and everything in between, we take a look at Michael Keaton's top 10 most memorable roles...

Sometimes, the Oscars have a tendency of giving out awards to actors who are seen to have paid their dues, perhaps not for the best performance of that year or even for the particular actor's own best performance, but to recognise past work. Michael Keaton is not the most likely of these, but this could be why some speculated that he was an early favourite for this year's Best Actor award, for his performance in Birdman.

The later frontrunner Eddie Redmayne rightfully and very graciously wound up taking it home for his work as Stephen Hawking in The Theory Of Everything, though Birdman went on to take home the main prize for Best Picture and a number of other major awards.

It would hardly have been a major upset if

Lost in the Awards Rush: The Paper

"Lost in the Awards Rush" is a weekly series Slackerwood is running during the awards season, to suggest lesser-known but excellent alternatives to popular frontrunners for big movie awards.

Birdman (2014) has certainly been the most breakthrough of indies this past awards season. Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's tale of a former action movie star (Michael Keaton) whose artistic comeback is marred by a variety of personal and professional crises (much of it courtesy of a pitch-perfect ensemble that includes Edward Norton, Emma Stone and Naomi Watts), has wowed virtually every major critic since its release. The praise has carried Birdman from offbeat indie to the most Oscar-nominated release of 2014 (Mike's review).

At the center of Birdman's acclaim is a magnificent and mesmerizing performance from its leading man. Having had a somewhat spotty filmography over the past decade or so, Keaton has landed a role most actors only dream of. His Riggan

Emotions run high at Santa Barbara tribute to Michael Keaton
Santa Barbara — Saturday night the Santa Barbara International Film Festival shook things up a bit with the annual Modern Master Award tribute, this year dedicated to "Birdman" star Michael Keaton. Colleagues and co-stars sent pre-recorded messages to honor the actor, emotions ran high at the end of the evening and the fest had a special surprise in store for moderator Leonard Maltin as well. First, the retrospective. It was a typical deep dive into a career, the highlights of which you can read in our recent series of interviews with the actor. Keaton was clearly overwhelmed by seeing things in this context as his "Multiplicity" co-star Andie MacDowell was on hand to present an introductory clip package of career highlights. "I feel like I'm gonna pass out," he said as he took the stage to begin the evening. Maltin noted Keaton's first scene from "Night Shift," as we hear the

Michael Keaton's love of journalism: 'The Paper,' 'Live from Baghdad,' 'Spotlight'
Santa Monica — A brief interlude today in our on-going series of chats with "Birdman" star Michael Keaton. An interesting note in his filmography is the handful of journalism films he has under his belt. Between Ron Howard's "The Paper," HBO's "Live from Baghdad" and the upcoming "Spotlight" from director Tom McCarthy, Keaton has seen his share of journalist characters. And it's something he's been fascinated by since he was a young man trying to find his way. Indeed, follow him on Instagram and you're not going to be confronted by a bunch of selfies from his life on the circuit. You'll see snapshot after snapshot of newspaper stories that he devours every morning while kicking back at the coffee shop we're meeting the a day before he'll get the news that he has landed his first Oscar nomination. It seemed an interesting sidebar so I pursued it. Read through

Michael Keaton remembers Harold Ramis, tackling Shakespeare, Ron Howard's 'Gung Ho'
Santa Monica — Michael Keaton is having the time of his life. Cruising along an awards circuit that has brought him plenty of kudos for his performance in Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)" and probably more opportunities to talk about himself than he'd prefer, he seems consistently high on life and not at all phased by the grind. He's not someone who has really sought out this kind of attention and acclaim, often retreating to his ranch in Montana away from the Hollywood fray, but now that he's feeling the love? Let's just say I doubt anyone's having as much fun with all of this than he is. On the eve of this year's Oscar nominations announcement, I met Keaton for coffee and a light lunch at one of his favorite Santa Monica spots to chew on as much of his career and the awards

‘In The Heart of The Sea’ Trailer: Should We Start Calling Ron Howard An Auteur?

Ron Howard doesn’t get the credit he deserves. He’s seen as a journeyman, and while maybe that’s a fair label, it’s often used to dismiss his work. It’s understandable some people undervalue the guy who directed The Dilemma, The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons, but Howard is also responsible for Apollo 13, Parenthood, freaking Night Shift, The Paper, Frost/Nixon and A Beautiful Mind. What’s respectable about Howard as a filmmaker is that, even this far into his career, he’s trying new things and pushing himself. Sometimes the result doesn’t always work, but a journeyman isn’t the kind of director that takes the occasional risk like Howard does. Last year a huge gamble of his paid off: Howard made one of his best films with Rush – a movie filled with energy, passion and excitement. The movie wasn’t a hit at the box-office or at awards ceremonies

Oscar Watch: Matthew McConaughey Gets His Star And Spago Lunch As Campaigns Launch Into Orbit
If there was any doubt that the Oscar-season engine is roaring, events, Q&As, screenings and all that jazz is at a fever pitch — and it isn’t even Thanksgiving yet. Today’s big moment belonged to reigning Best Actor winner Matthew McConaughey, who got his star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame followed by a lavish lunch at Spago in Beverly Hills hosted by Paramount Chairman Brad Grey and attended by his Interstellar co-stars Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain (who was excited to sit next to Martin Landau and hear his Actors Studio stories) and Mackenzie Foy, along with director Christopher Nolan and producer/wife Emma Thomas and brother Jonathan, with whom he co-wrote the screenplay. Oh, and did I forget to mention Paramount also invited scores of Academy members to celebrate with Matthew? His family including kids and wife Camila Alves were at the ceremony, and Alves also came

From Batman to Birdman, Where Have You been Michael Keatonc

"It sucked... It just was -- awful," Michael Keaton says of Batman Forever in the following "CBS Sunday Morning" interview piece, which largely asks "Where has Michael Keaton beenc" It's a good little piece as we learn Keaton turned down a reported $15 million to play Batman a third time. The role would eventually go to Val Kilmer and while the question of where has Keaton been floats in the air... Well, since Batman Returns he's made The Paper, Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown, starred in White Noise, voiced characters in Pixar's Cars and Toy Story 3 and was an excellent contribution to The Other Guys. Granted, none of those roles stacks up to his new film, Birdman (or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), which I had the pleasure of seeing just this morning and while I'll have my review for you on Monday, let me just say the hype around this one is for real,
