Moonstone taps Caine chair of advisory panel

Group to advise writers, filmmakers

LONDON — Michael Caine has been named chair of the artistic advisory panel of Moonstone Intl., the European version of the Sundance Institute.

The newly created panel will advise and support aspiring writers and filmmakers participating in Moonstone’s thrice-annual labs. The next lab — for scribes — will be held in Norway this weekend.

Caine said: “I really think we can help not only those who are trying to break into the cinema but the cinema itself. After all, they are the future and if we don’t help them we won’t have one.”

Moonstone, based in Edinburgh, Scotland, was set up by writer-producer John McGrath (“Carrington,” “Ma Vie En Rose”) in 1997 using Sundance as a model.

Additional advisers will be announced in the coming weeks. The intention is to have about 10 panel members.
