Co-prod mart hands $700,000 to five projects

ROME — TorinoFilmLab, the Italo co-production mart partly modelled on the Sundance Institute, has announced winners of its third edition and awarded more than $700,000 in production coin to five projects.

They are:

– “Wolf”: a first feature by Romanian helmer Bogdan Mustata, an assistant director on Vinko Bresan’s “Witnesses.”

– “Leones”: the helming debut of young Argentine helmer Jazmin Lopez.

– “Il Sud E’ Niente”: by Italy’s Fabio Mollo, author of pluriprized short “Giganti.”

– “Bait”: by Bosnia’s Aida Begic, whose first feature “Snow” won the Cannes Intl. Critics’ Week Grand Prix in 2008.

– “In What City Does It Live?”: Pluriprized Malaysian helmer Liew Seng Tat’s followup to “Flower in the Pocket,” which scooped nods in Pusan and Rotterdam.

The third edition of the ultra-indie mart — which takes place during the Turin Film Festival — ended Tuesday, having hosted some 120 attendees, among whom was hot Italo helmer Michelangelo Frammartino, a former TorinoFilmLab prizewinner, whose “Le Quattro Volte” has sold in 40 territories, including Lorber Films in the U.S.
