Eurimages coin fuels co-prod’ns

'Klimt,' 'Azur,' 'Nocturna,' big winners in funding

COLOGNE — Pan-European film funder Eurimages in its December session earmarked E3.5 million ($4.7 million) to support international co-productions. The largest amount, $800,000, went to John Malkovich starrer “Klimt,” a biopic to be directed by Raoul Ruiz.

Animation received special attention, with Michel Ocelot’s “Azur et Asmar,” Philippe Leclerc’s “La reine soleil” and “Nocturna,” by Victor Maldonado and Adrian Garcia, receiving $780,000 each.

Done in African-style art, “Azur et Asmar” is the story of two boys growing up Muslim and Christian and their separation and reunification.

“La reine soleil” tells the tale of ancient Egyptian monarchs Tutankhamen and Nefertiti.

“Nocturna,” a predominantly Spanish production, is about the dream world of a little boy finding company among creatures of the night.

Marco Bellocchio, guru of Italy’s left-wing cinema, snatched $590,000 for his nonpolitical drama “Il regista di matrimoni.”

Spanish newcomer Anton Reixa received $470,000 for “Hotel Tivoli,” a chain of episodes linked by a cigarette lighter trading hands.

Canan Gerede’s “Dilan,” about a woman fleeing her arranged wedding in rural Turkey, and Fotos Lamprinos’ pic about Greek resistance in WWII, “Lefka Sosonia,” each received $270,000.
