LatinoBuzz: Strategic Partners Welcomes Esteemed Keynote Speakers Mariela Besuievsky of Tornasol Films and Vimeo’s Peter Gerard

Strategic Partners, a presentation of the Atlantic Film Festival, will host a visionary line-up of speakers including keynote addresses presented by Tornasol Films Producer Mariela Besuievsky and Vimeo Director of Audience Development and Content Operations, Peter Gerard, as part of the event taking place September 11 - 14 in Halifax.

"With our spotlight shining brightly on Spain, Latin America, and the USA at Strategic Partners in 2014, having Mariela as our esteemed Opening Keynote couldn't be more relevant,” says Director of Strategic Partners, Laura MacKenzie. “Her impressive background as a producer, as well as her co-production experience around the globe (not to mention her incredible presence in the room) will ensure an inspirational conversation."

Originally from Uruguay, Besuievsky has produced over 90 films and has been a partner at Tornasol Films in Spain since 1999. She is renowned for her work on illustrious films such as "The Secret in Their Eyes" (winner of the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 2010), "The Oxford Murders" (starring Elijah Wood and John Hurt) and Oscar nominated "Son of the Bride" (Best Film at the Argentinean Film Critics Association Awards 2002) among many others. Besuievsky has a rich history of bringing raw, character-driven stories to the screen.

"I'm very excited to attend Strategic Partners this fall! It is an optimal place for networking and providing an opportunity to find global partners,” says Besuievsky. “It is also a perfect environment to exchange impressions with other industry professionals, and to find new ideas and different points of view for your projects."

Vimeo Director of Audience Development and Content Operations Peter Gerard will also deliver a highly anticipated keynote address. Gerard set the stage for his impressive career by founding Accidental Media in Edinburgh and leading this groundbreaking company for more than ten years.

In 2010, Gerard founded Distrify to establish “direct-to-fan” digital film sales and in 2014, Peter moved to New York to join Vimeo, where he now manages marketing partnerships within Vimeo’s Audience Development team. His focus is on growing the Vimeo on Demand solution for independent film sales.

“I am excited by the opportunity to meet talented producers at Strategic Partners and talk about the possibilities of online marketing and sales for films and series," says Gerard. "The Vimeo On Demand catalogue is growing fast and we are empowering creators to connect with their global audiences through direct distribution."

"There's no doubt the digital first conversation will be overarching at Strategic Partners this year, and therefore I'm very excited to present industry leader, Peter Gerard, to deliver a keynote address on the topic of Producers as Entrepreneurs," says Mackenzie. "Vimeo's foray into original content with the series High Maintenance further solidifies the commitment and platform of self-distribution to supporting producers and content creation - this is exactly who we want represented at Strategic Partners!"

Each year, top Canadian and international industry players, including producers, investors, sales agents, funding agencies, broadcasters and distributors are selected to attend Strategic Partners. Offering over 1,000 pre-scheduled 1-2-1 meetings, co-production focused roundtable sessions, cutting edge panels, visionary keynote speakers, and screenings and receptions – Strategic Partners is a convergence of talent and innovation, producing tangible results.

Grand Piano | Review

Player Piano: Interesting Ideas Churn Into Nonsensical Slog in Mira’s Third Outing

Back with his first film since the 2010 potboiler, Agnosia, Spanish director Eugenio Mira returns to filming in English with Grand Piano, an ambitiously designed film that desperately tries to work around a central gimmick. Featuring inspired use of several musical selections and slick editing, which seem designed to pick up the slack for the lack of dramatic tension in a laughable narrative that only becomes more ludicrous as more details become revealed, its initial set-up is quite certainly engaging in that it creates a curiosity to want to know more. That’s saying a lot considering there are several obnoxious supporting characters and wooden performances that muddle the mood early on.

Tom Selznick (Elijah Wood) is known as the most talented pianist of his generation, but he hasn’t performed in public for five years due to

The Unseen: 'Perdita Durango’ – A Journey of Sex, Magic, and Murder

  • FEARnet
The Unseen:  'Perdita Durango’ – A Journey of Sex, Magic, and Murder
Álex de la Iglesia is quite possibly my favorite filmmaker. Seriously, I cannot think of another director whose entire body of work I find quite as remarkable. The Day of the Beast (which should be its own entry in The Unseen, as it never had a Us release) is my favorite horror comedy ever. The Baby’s Room scared the hell out me and should not have been stashed away in the bulk title release of 6 Films to Keep You Awake. The Last Circus is brutally beautiful. Even his more “commercial” film, The Oxford Murders, is a meticulously woven masterpiece. Iglesia has recently appeared in horror news both for his inclusion in The ABCs of Death 2 and also for the insane trailer of his upcoming film Witching and Bitching (watch the trailer here). But the Iglesia film I’m discussing in this article is even more obscure than these rather

2013 Cannes Film Festival Predictions: Nacho Vigalondo’s Open Windows

#81. Nacho Vigalondo’s Open Windows

Gist: A man (Elijah Wood) obsessed with an abducted actress (played by adult crossover star Sasha Grey) attempts to discover what’s happened to her, following clues and footage made available to him over an iPhone. Vigalondo, who says the feature was inspired by De Palma’s Blow Out (which happens to be a film heavily inspired by Blow Up), will see us following the action from the Pov of a laptop connected to the internet, and thus, the audience will become the protagonist.

Prediction: We’re predicting a Directors’ Fortnight slot for Vigalondo’s latest, and it would be his first title to premiere at Cannes. His 2007 breakout hit Time Crimes landed him a Toronto premiere for his 2011 follow-up, Extraterrestrial. Though filmed in Spain, this is the director’s first film headlined by American stars, and we hope that Elijah Wood, who seems to

Elijah Wood Reteams With 'Wilfred' Helmer Randall Einhorn For 'Late Bloomer'; Also Starts Genre Label

While Elijah Wood could just sit back and count his Frodo money on an island somewhere, the actor is using that success to try different things, even if they don't always work out (we're looking at you "The Oxford Murders"). He's taken a strong indie route, lending his talents to a variety of movies including the rom-com "Celeste & Jesse Forever," the absurd comedy "Revenge For Jolly!," the horror remake "Maniac" and more. But perhaps one of his more succesful ventures has been on the small screen with FX series "Wilfred" and he's hoping he can bring that magic to the big screen. Wood will star in "Wilfred" director Randall Einhorn's feature debut "Late Bloomer." Based on the memoir "Man Made" by Ken Baker, the movie will tell the incredible true story of a man who finds out at 30 he hasn't fully gone through puberty, and after a medical procedure,

The Playlist's 15 Most Anticipated Films Of The 2012 Tribeca Film Festival

This year's Tribeca Film Festival carries one of its strongest line-ups in years. In addition to films from Cannes, Venice, Toronto, Sundance and Berlin circuit, there's also a wealth of U.S. premieres or lesser-known festival movies in the line-up that look just as promising this time around; after a relatively weak SXSW, it looks like the East Coast is getting some of the good stuff.

Below, you'll find 15 films that seem among the most intriguing Tribeca has to offer this year. Of course, we can't speak for their quality as yet, but they certainly look promising at this point at time. And for the record, we haven't included the high-profile opening and closing films -- "The Five-Year Engagement" and "The Avengers" -- partly because they're getting more than enough attention elsewhere, and partly because we've already seen both (although can't review them just yet -- keep your eyes peeled

John Hurt: 'I'd be a rubbish spy'

John Hurt makes a convincingly cerebral spook in the new film of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. But in real life, if he were in charge of MI6, we'd be in trouble. He's too gregarious, too eager and far too puckish

John Hurt doesn't think he'd have made a good spy. "I'd have been terrible! Too transparent by half!" He scoffs happily, gimlet eyes a-twinkle. But surely actors and operatives share certain skills?

A big wise head waggle. "Don't forget there are two sides to performing. Finding the truth, but you also have to be transparent enough for the audience to see it. How many times have you seen a performance and thought: well, it seems to be meaning a great deal to you but it ain't coming across to me? It is to be shared. This isn't a grief for your own pleasure … Ah, coffee!"

Anna Massey: a career in clips

The actor Anna Massey has died aged 73. We look back at her career in clips, from Peeping Tom to The Machinist

Anna Massey, who has died aged 73, had two distinct stages to her career: first as the innocent victim in the films of two master directors trying their hand at horror, and then as a wily, wide-eyed staple of period TV drama. Yet the two seemed absolutely apiece: Massey was such a singular actor, with a constant, unafraid gaze and keen intelligence, that looking back it's hard not to be struck by her curious agelessness.

Her screen debut in 1960 was as the heroine of Michael Powell's once-loathed, now-lauded Peeping Tom. She doesn't get much airtime in this trailer, but her almost bolshie naivete is startling: a clang of reality beside Carl Boehm's killer.

Twelve years later she accepted Alfred Hitchcock's invitation to all but reprise her role in "necktie murders" chiller Frenzy.
