Toulouse wins heavyweight support

CICAE, Kodak, MacGuff, Mediavision and Titra team up for Latin American prize

MADRID — CICAE, the influential France-based International Confederation of European Art Cinemas, has teamed with Kodak, MacGuff Ligne, Mediavision, Titra Film and film magazine Telerama to prize the winner of Films in Progress at Toulouse’s XVII Rencontres Cinemas d’Amerique Latine.

“The involvement of CICAE and Telerama will significantly further the winner’s chances of gaining distribution and exhibition in France, and enhance the film’s visibility,” said the Films in Progress org.

A twice-yearly showcase for Latin America pics seeking completion finance, Films in Progress runs March 23-24 in Toulouse and Sept. 26-27 at the San Sebastian Film Festival.

The Toulouse winner will also receive production aid through a subtitled 35mm copy.

Toulouse’s Film in Progress features two social conscience pics: unemployed secretary tale “Rabia” (Anger), from Chile’s Oscar Cardenas, and Brazilian Gustavo Pereira da Silva’s “A casa de Alicia,” chronicling a fortysomething woman’s daily drudgery in Sao Paulo.

Others confirm Latin America’s ever-widening gamut of film styles.

“Familia Tortuga” from Mexico’s Ruben Imaz is a tale of family solidarity.

Argentine Marcelo Pavan’s “La Punta del Diablo” has a neurosurgeon suddenly taking off for the Uruguayan coast.

The showcase also reprises two titles from San Sebastian’s last Films in Progress: Uruguayan black comedy “El bano del Papa” (The Pope’s Toilet) from Enrique Fernandez and “The Constant Gardener” D.P. Cesar Charlone; and Ecuatorian pic “Esas no son penas,” by Anahi Hoeneisen and Daniel Andrade, about a reunion of five old school friends, all women.
