COLOGNE — Bosnian helmer Danis Tanovic (“No Man’s Land”) is preparing his next pic, “Triage,” which again deals with dilemmas in times of war, this time about the allocation of medical resources.
Pic’s main producers are Ireland’s Stradbrook Prods./Parallel Films, along with France’s ASAP and Spain’s Freeform Films.
“Triage” has snatched 650,000 euros ($1.1 million) from pan-European funding body Eurimages, which at its latest award session distributed $5.6 million for 10 projects
Amounts around $1 million were also given to Marco Bellocchio’s historical psychodrama “Vincere” about Mussolini’s illegitimate son, and to animated film “I cuccioli e il codice di Marco Polo” by Sergio Manfio.
More coin went to Tomas Masin’s drama “3 sezony v pekle” (“Three Seasons in hell”) set in Czechoslovakia in the late 1940s, and to a social drama set in Peru’s mining region, “Fragments of Grace,” by Peter Brosens and Jessica Woodworth, the team that in 2006 took the Luigi de Laurentiis award at Venice for “Khadak.”
Eurimages also funded Rita Hort’s kids pic “EEP,” Bernard Bellefroid’s debut feature “La Regate” and documentaries “Forgotten Space” by Allan Sekula and Noel Burch, and “Katanga — Mineral Business” by Thierry Michel, and “Europolis” by Bulgarian helmer Kostadin Bonev.
Eurimages’ next allocation session has been scheduled for the first week of May.
