Plog to succeed Toubon as Eurimage head

COLOGNE —  Nanni Moretti’s “Habemus Papam,” which centers on a nervous, newly elected pope on a shrink’s couch, has received E600,000 ($883,000) in support from pan-European film funder Eurimages.

It is among 13 pics that will draw funding from Eurimages, which handed out $7.6 million in its recent session.

Eurimages allocated funds to Istvan Szabo’s adaptation of novel “The Door” by the late author Magda Szabo; Danis Tanovic’s “Cirkus Columbia”; Bent Hamer’s “Hjem til jul” (Before Christmas); Norwegian helmer Maria Sodahl’s “Limbo”; Russian Bakhtiar Khudojnazarov’s “Waiting for the Sea”; Spaniard Iciar Bollain’s “Tambien la lluvia”; Turkish helmer Seyfi Teoman’s “Our Grand Despair”; animated pics “Ernest et Celestine” and “Snow White”; doc “Los pasos dobles” by Spain’s Isaki Lacuesta; “Kai apkanbinsiu tave” by Lithuania’s Kristijonas Vildziunas; and “The Children’s Republic,” by Portugal’s Flora Gomes.

Eurimages also announced that outgoing prexy Jacques Toubon will be succeeded by Jobst Plog, former head of German pubcaster NDR.

Now in its 20th year, Eurimages is the Council of Europe’s fund for the co-production, distribution and exhibition of films.
