Peter Scarlet hosting ‘Cinemondo’

LinkTV series launches Dec. 1

Tribeca Film Festival’s Peter Scarlet is going abroad – sort of. The fest’s artistic director will be hosting the soph season of “Cinemondo” on LinkTV, a show devoted to US TV preems of foreign films from around the world. The series launches Dec. 1 and will premiere a film a week on LinkTV’s Dish Network and DirecTV channels.

“Cinemondo” creator Steven Lawrence laments the fact that “there are so few television networks willing to program world cinema beyond the the relatively small number of films that have had theatrical releases combined with box office success.” He also points to Koch Lorber’s acquisition of this season’s “Making Of” as proof of “Cinemondo’s” pedigree.

Scarlet notes that his hosting duties will dovetail with his mission at Tribeca and hopefully draw attention to worthy films. Scarlet’s season of the show includes Brazillian period drama “Cinema, Aspirins, and Vultures,” a film about a German man traveling through Brazil selling aspirin during World War II.
