    International Sales Agent Wide at Sundance, Rotterdam and Berlin

    Wide is proud that its new acquisition, The Mill and the Cross by Lech Majewski, is having its World Premiere at Sundance and its European Premiere at Rotterdam. The Director Lech Majewski changes the way art is portrayed on film, pioneering a new method to “enter” a painting and to create a narrative based on its depicted figures, performed by live actors. In post-production, Majewski painstakingly layered various elements: for example, he added an actor shot in front of a blue screen to several layers of both painted backdrops and location footage, enhanced by digital footage of a majestic sky shot in New Zealand.

    AFFRM: A New View of Distribution

    On Sunday, January 25, 2011, AFFRM hosted the third of a trio of dinners for black filmmakers and filmthinkers at Sundance Film Festival.
