Call Me by Your Name (2017)
Even though the showcase, based in suburban Washington, D.C., is only in its sixth year, the winner of this honor has factored into the Oscar race in a major way. The first four years of the festival saw the winner of this prize receive Best Picture nominations: “Philomena” (2013), “The Imitation Game” (2014), “Spotlight” (2015), which won the Oscar, and “Lion” (2016). Last year’s winner, “Mudbound,” missed out in Oscar’s top category but still managed to get four nominations, including Best Supporting Actress (Mary J. Blige) and Best Adapted Screenplay. “Green Book” is currently in sixth place to claim the Best Picture Oscar, according our combined odds.

At first glance, it seems like Dario Argento’s 1977 cult horror classic, Suspiria, would be impossible to remake. Not because it’s so well-written or satisfying as a narrative, but because Argento’s film is so stylized, so drenched in its own peculiar atmosphere and so specifically tailored to the director’s own particular vision (what there is of it) that any attempt to recreate or refashion what the legendary Italian horror auteur had wrought would fall hopelessly short in the areas where Suspiria is strongest while delivering something more conventional as a film.
But the idea of current hotshot Italian filmmaker, Luca Guadagnino taking on the challenge was an interesting one. Guadagnino’s films, including I Am Love, A Bigger Splash and last year’s acclaimed Call Me by Your Name,
It’ll be some time before we see anything official from “Little Women,” but Chalamet has taken it upon himself to share a blurry Instagram photo of his co-star and director rehearsing a few weeks ago; accompanied by the caption “littlewomen,” it shows Ronan hugging Gerwig from behind. Not pictured: the rest of the stacked ensemble cast, which is led by Meryl Streep, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, James Norton, Laura Dern, Emma Watson (who replaced Emma Stone), Louis Garrel, Bob Odenkirk, Chris Cooper, and Abby Quinn.
“It is an idea of Rodrigo Teixeira, one of the producers of Call Me By Your Name, whom I started to have a great relationship with,” said Guadagnino, who was nominated for Best Director earlier this year for his work on Call Me By Your Name. “He said to me, ‘You know, I have the rights to make a movie out of Blood on the Tracks by Bob Dylan. What do you think?’ And I found this concept very good because, as I’ve said many times, I don’t believe in originality in filmmaking. I think filmmaking is really a question of point of view.”
Although specific plot details are being kept under wraps,

Writer-director Danielle Lessovitz’s feature debut, a result of Rt and Sikelia’s joint venture to foster emerging filmmakers, is a love story set in New York’s kiki ballroom scene (the Lgbt subculture that includes competitive performances and dance).
The movie follows Paul (Whitehead), an early twentysomething who arrives at the central bus station and quickly catches eyes with Wye (Bloom), a girl voguing with her brothers on the sidewalk. After Paul seeks her out in secret, an intense love blossoms. But when he discovers that Wye is trans, he is forced to confront his desire for her and the deep-seated violence of those around him.

Exciting news for cinephiles this week, as Luca Guadagnino, director of Call Me By Your Name, has announced that for his next film he will be making a film adaptation of the album Blood on the Tracks, by the Nobel Prize-winning author Bob Dylan. A profile of the director in the New Yorker this week carries the revelation that a producer of Call Me By Your Name had acquired theatrical rights to the album – in itself a point of interest for anyone who didn’t know that albums had theatrical rights – and asked Guadagnino to turn it into a film.
Speaking to the New Yorker ahead of the release of his Thom Yorke-scored Suspiria remake, Guadagnino said that a producer who owned the “theatrical rights” to Dylan’s 1975 masterpiece approached him about the project.
Guadagnino offered to take on the film on one condition: If renowned screenwriter Richard Lagravenese penned the script, which he did earlier this year. According to the New Yorker,
