Film and Music Ent. Ink Deals

Mike Downey’s London-based shingle Film and Music Entertainment (F&ME) is headed to Cannes with a clutch of active titles up for grabs, including Georgian co-production “Dede,” which will be sold by WIDE Management and “The Constitution,” sold through Latido.

“Dede,” which is co-produced with Georgia’s 20 Steps, marks the feature debut for helmer-scribe Mariam Khatchvani. Currently in post, the project chronicles the story of a young mother and widow who lives in a remote village in the Georgian mountains and has to adhere to traditional culture by marrying the first man who asks for her hand.

The film, currently in post-production, is a British-Georgian-Croatian-Dutch co-production with Vova Katcharava’s 20 Steps, Igor Nola’s MP Film Production and JaJa Film Productions. It was developed at the Sundance Lab and Fabrique des Cinemas du Monde and supported by the Doha Film Institute and the Georgian National Film Centre.

“The Constitution,” which is directed by Rajko Grlic, will be shopped to buyers along the Croisette through Spanish sales outfit Latido. The story follows four different people living in the same building whose lives become entangled through misfortune. It is produced by Zagreb’s Inter Film and co-produced by Rudolph Biermann of In-Film and Sever + Sever of Slovenia.

F&ME, which is run by Downey and Samantha Taylor, will also be in town with projects such as Rudolph Herzog’s black comedy “How to Sell a War,” penned by Welsh scribe Tim Price, Ivan Ostrochovsky’s “The Disciple,” Konstantin Bojanov’s “My Eyes Are Yours,” Voker Schloendorff’s “Return to Montauk” and Dome Karukoski’s “Tom of Finland,” based on the life of the gay Finnish artist and sold through Protagonist Pictures.
