Woody Allen heads line-up of international films co-produced by Europe
Presented out of competition today at the Cannes Film Festival, Woody Allen’s You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger [+see also:
film profile] is representative of a trend that has been growing in past years: the involvement of European companies in the production of works from all over the world.
Shot entirely in London, the New York director’s latest film, starring Antonio Banderas and UK actor Anthony Hopkins, was financed by Spain’s Mediapro and is sold internationally by Imagina International Sales (created by Mediapro and Globomedia).
Also in the Official Selection, Japanese director Hideo Nakata’s Chatroom [+see also:
film profile], presented yesterday in the Un Certain Regard section, is a 100% UK production through Ruby Films.
Chilean director Patricio Guzman’s documentary Nostalgia for the Light was co-produced by France (Atacama Productions) and Germany (Blinker Filmproduktion).
