Venice: Several Pan-European Shingles Banding Together to Produce ‘Hier’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Hungary’s Mirage Film Studio is teaming with France’s Les Films de L’Apres-Midi, the Netherland’s Rotterdam Films, Germany’s One Two Films and Bleck Film in Sweden to produce Hungarian Balint Kenyeres’ “Hier,” one of the highest-profile titles at the first Venice European Gap Financing Co-production Market.

Filmfreaks has closed Benelux distribution rights via Rotterdam Films, said Mirage Film Studio producer Andrea Taschler on the eve of the market, which kicks off here on Friday.

Kenyeres’ “Before Dawn,” a 12-minute, single-shot immigration drama, won a 2005 Sundance Jury Prize.

He followed that up with “The History of Aviation,” which played in Cannes’ 2009 Directors’ Fortnight.

Written by Kenyeres, “Hier” turns on a successful 50-year-old construction company owner who returns to the capital of a North African country to save a project and catches, he thinks, a glimpse of the lost love of his life.

Underscoring strong institutional backing for “Hier,” project is supported by the Hungarian National Film Fund, the Netherlands Film Fund, Sweden’s Film i Vast, broadcaster Arte Germany, Teuton regional pubcaster Saarlandischer Rundfunk and France’s CNC film board.
