SPE, Canal +, Euro Union join to promote film development
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art will host a series of screenings and workshops from the Equinoxe Association, a program to encourage feature film development backed by Sony Pictures Entertainment, Canal Plus and the Media Programme of the European Union.
On Oct. 2, there will be screenings of James Huth’s black comedy “Serial Lover,” followed by Alain Berliner’s “Ma Vie en Rose,” which was nominated for an Academy Award for best foreign-language film.
Both pics started out at the Equinoxe screenwriters and producers workshops, which are held twice a year at the Chateau Beychevelle in France.
Berliner is next directing the Demi Moore-starrer “Passion of Mind,” for Lakeshore Entertainment and Paramount.
On Oct. 3, Equinoxe will hold a seminar with a panel of American filmmakers who have participated in the workshops. These will include screenwriters Larry Gross (“48 Hrs.”) and James V. Hart (“Hook”).
That will be followed on Oct. 7 by screenings of Christophe Ruggia’s “Le Gone du Chaaba” and Laurent Bouhnik’s “Zonzon.”
