European Film Awards To Fete Lucky Red Topper Andrea Occhipinti

ROME – The upcoming European Film Awards will fete Italian producer and distributor Andrea Occhipinti with the Prix Eurimages dedicated to celebrating the key role of co-productions in boosting the growth of the European film industry.

Occhipinti’s Rome-based shingle Lucky Red over the past 28 years has distributed some 250 titles and produced more than 40 feature films, a large portion of which supported by Eurimages. Eurimages is the Council of Europe’s fund supporting European co-productions. It also helps promote their theatrical distribution.

Standout Euro co-prods Lucky Red has handled include Paolo Sorrentino’s “Il Divo” and “This Must Be The Place,” Dardenne brothers-directed “The Kid With a Bike,” and Michel Ocelot’s toon “Azur et Asmar.”

Lucky Red has had a hand in many other successful co-prods by directors from all over the world, including Lars Von Trier, Patrice Leconte, Wong Kar-Wai, Park Chan-Wook, Peter Mullan, Francois Ozon, Gurinder Chadha, Hayao Miyazaki, Agnes Jaoui, Jacques Perrin, and Robert Altman, just to name a few.

In October Lucky Red joined forces with Rome’s Indigo Film (“The Great Beauty”) to launch world sales company True Colours dedicated to Italian and international product.

The European Film Awards, which are Europe’s top cross-border nods, will be presented in Berlin on December 12. The front-runner is Paolo Sorrentino’s “Youth.”
