Venice Fest’s Biennale College Announces Trio Of Pics It Will Produce

U.S-based directorial duo Daniel Garcia and Rania Attieh make the cut with new project titled "H."

ROME – U.S.-based directorial duo Daniel Garcia and Rania Attieh (“OK, Enough, Goodbye”) are among winners of the second edition of the Venice Film Festival’s Biennale College initiative, which will shepherd three microbudget works from development through distribution, sponsored by Gucci.

Their sophomore work, which is being produced by India’s Shruti Rya Ganguly and U.S. producer Pierce Varous, is titled “H.” Pic is being described as a contempo greek tragedy about two women, both named Helen, whose lives and relationships begin to unravel in the wake of a meteor explosion over their town of Troy, NY.

“OK, Enough, Goodbye,” which was self-produced by the dual-nationality duo – Garcia is American, while Attieh is Lebanese – won a prize for Best New Director from the Arab World at the Abu Dhabi film fest in 2010.

The other two projects that made the Biennale College cut are both first works.

They are: “Blood Cells,” a drama by Brit directorial duo Joseph Bull and Luke Seomore, produced by Samm Haillay; and Italo helmer Duccio Chiarini’s “Short Skin,” produced by Rome-based multi-hyphenate Babak Jalali.

Each director-producer team now has €150,000 ($203,000), plus tutoring and mentoring at their disposal.

They must complete their project in time to screen at the 71st Venice fest, which will run Aug. 27 to Sept. 6, 2014.
