Sundance, RioFilme plan scribe lab

Brazilian writers to meet in Paraty

MIAMI — Sundance Institute, in conjunction with RioFilme, will play host to its fourth annual Brazilian screenwriters lab from June 7-11 in the colonial town of Paraty, outside Rio.

Writers from 10 projects will participate, working with international and Brazilian advisers. The foreign advisers include scribes Howard Rodman (“Joe Gould’s Secret”), Joe Tropiano (“Big Night”) and Mexico’s Marcela Fuentes Berain (famed for her telenovela work), along with helmer-writers Kevin Sullivan (director of “How Stella Got her Groove Back”) and Anthony Drazan (director and producer of the film version of “Hurlyburly”). They will join a team of five Brazilians, including Sandra Werneck (“The Little Book of Love”).

Sundance is also sponsoring screenings in Rio of pics that have received some type of Sundance support. The five-day series will feature the Brazilian preems of “Love and Basketball,” “Joe Gould’s Secret” and “Judy Berlin.”

Andrucha Waddington’s “Eu, Tu, Eles” (Me, You, Them), which bowed at Cannes in the Un Certain Regard program, opened the series June 1. The Elena Soarez script was a Brazil lab project in 1998.
