BD Cine finds funding in Brazil

Argentina producer partners with Gullane on 'All In'

BUENOS AIRES — Argentine production house BD Cine is partnering with Brazil’s Gullane on the next two films by helmer Daniel Burman, picking up coin in Latin America as European funding tightens.

The first is “La suerte en tus manos” (All In), a poker-tinged romantic comedy set for release in March.

Musician Jorge Drexler makes his acting debut as a man out to recover an old love after a failed marriage. Valeria Bertucelli (“A Boyfriend for my Wife”) co-stars in the $1.5 million production along with Guillermo Francella (“The Secret in Their Eyes”).

Burman is writing his next project, still untitled, with Sergio Dubcovsky, a partner on “Dos hermanos” (Brother and Sister), the third-hottest local film of 2010.

Shooting starts October 2012 for an August 2013 release, said Diego Dubcovsky, Burman’s partner in BD Cine.

The tie-up with Gullane, which produced “The Year My Parents Went on Vacation” and “Carandiru,” brings in funds from economically robust Brazil.

It is getting harder to finance films in Argentina as 20% annual inflation is driving up costs, while European producers, long a source of coin, are tightening belts due to the economic crisis.

“You have to look for alternatives,” Dubcovsky said, adding that other producers are turning to Brazil and South Korea.
