Thessaloniki sets tributes

Driver, Sorrentino, Madsen and Giannaris works presented at festival

Greece’s Thessaloniki Film Festival, slated for Nov. 4-13, will screen tributes to American indie producer-helmer Sara Driver, Danish new wave filmmaker Ole Christian Madsen, Italo helmer-scribe Paolo Sorrentino and Greece’s Constantine Giannaris, dubbed a maestro of “new queer cinema.”

Alongside five pics including Jim Jarmusch’s “Stranger Than Paradise” and “Permanent Vacation,” both of which she produced, Driver will present “You Are Not I,” her own film based on the work of Paul Bowles. Pic was believed lost for decades until a copy she had sent to Bowles in Tangier surfaced after his death.

Madsen will show seven pics spanning 14 years, including Dogma film “Kira’s Reason: A Love Story” and his first comedy, “SuperClasico.”

Sorrento will screen Sean Penn starrer “This Must Be the Place,” along with four other lush character studies, including 2008’s look at the corrupt administration of Giulio Andreotti, “Il divo.”

Gianarris’ prolific work will be repped by 17 pics, many shorts shot on 8mm, that examine identity, alienation and intolerance. He wrote and helmed “Man at Sea” this year, building on critical attention he’s earned abroad since 1992.
