Locarno Fest Reveals Titles Of First Look On Israeli Cinema Pics-In-Post Showcase

The Locarno Film Festival has revealed the six titles that have made the cut for its First Look On Israeli Cinema pics-in-post showcase.

Formerly known as Carte Blanche, Locarno’s First Look will provide Israel’s vibrant film industry with a prominent platform where directors and producers will screen their unfinished goods for buyers, sellers and fest programmers during the indie-centric Swiss fest’s Industry Days informal mart.

The selected titles are:

– “A Quiet Heart” (Lev Shaket) by Eitan Anner, produced by Gal Greenspan (GreenProductions)
– “Ewa,” by Haim Tabakman, produced by David Silber (Metro Communication) and Ronen Ben Tal (Plan B)
– “Hope” (Amal) by Miya Hatav, produced by Elad Peleg and Haggai Arad (Daroma Productions)
– “Our Father” (Avinu) by Meni Yaesh, produced by Marek Rozenbaum (Transfax Films Production)
– “Sand Storm” (Sufat Chol) by Elite Texer, produced by Haim Mecklberg and Estee Mecklberg (2–Team Productions)
– “The 90 Minute War” (Milhemet 90 Hadakot) by Eyal Halfon, produced by Assaf Amir (Norma Productions) and Steve Hudson (Gringo Films GmbH)

These works-in-progress will be accessible to industry badge holders only. Before before each screening producers and directors will introduce their film to the various international sales agents, funders, distributors and festival programmers attending. Producers will also access a special matchmaking service provided by First Look Project Manager, Markus Duffner.

On August 10, a jury, comprised by Karel Och (Karlovy Vary International Film Festival’s Artistic Director); John Nein (Sundance Film Festival Programming Director), and Soue-won Rhee (Busan International Film Festival programmer) will dish out an award worth Euros 60,000 ($66,000) in post-prod services, sponsored by Rotor Film, as well as a nod worth 5,500 euros ($6,000) in advertising, donated by French trade Le Film Francais.
