Venice: Rei Cine, Gamechanger Team on ‘Hunting Season’ (EXCLUSIVE)

U.S. femme filmmaker film fund makes pioneering international investment; Augenschein, Les Films de L’Etranger co-produce

Argentina’s Rei Cine, one of Latin America’s most active movie co-producers, has teamed with New York.-based Gamechanger Films, Germany’s Augenschein Filmproduktion and Les Films de l’Etranger to finance and produce “Temporada de caza” (Hunting Season).

Rei is presenting “Dolores” at the Venice Fest’s Gap Financing Market.

Set to premiere in 2017, the Patagonia-set father-son drama “Hunting Season” marks the first feature of Argentina’s Natalia Garagiola. She co-directed, with Kresten Krusk, the short “Sundays,” which was part of a program of international collaborations that opened Cannes’ Directors’ Fortnight in 2014.

Produced by Benjamin Domenech, Santiago Gallelli and Matias Roveda at Rei Cine, which has Lucretia Martel’s “Zama” in post-production.

“Hunting Season” also underscores a pioneering investment outside by the U.S. by Gamechanger, which exclusively finances feature films directed by women.

“Season” has just wrapped principal photography, and follows Nahuel (Lautaro Bettoni), who after his mother dies, must live with his estranged father, a hunter in Patagonia’s forests. There, Nahuel will discover love, and his capacity to kill.

German Palacios (“XXY,”) plays Nahuel’s father; Rita Pauls (“Historia de un clan”) co-stars.

Underscoring the geographical reach of Latin American co-productions, “Hunting Season,” drew coin or development support from entities in three continents: Argentina’s Incaa film board, Torino Film Lab, Doha Film Institute, the Berlin Fest’s World Cinema Fund and Strasbourg’s Eurometropole regional fund.

Gamechanger’s most recent films include Karyn Kusama’s thriller “The Invitation,” So Yong Kim’s 2016 drama “Lovesong,” and Sarah Adina Smith’s “Buster’s Mal Heart,” which premieres at Toronto.
