    Donna Gigliotti Joins The Weinstein Co.

    The Weinstein Company and Donna Gigliotti have reunited. It's good news for both sides of the equation. Donna's beginnings as Martin Scorsese's assistant were followed by many successes.

    Eurimages - The Council of Europe - Roberto Olla Part I

    Roberto Olla, Executive Director, EurimagesIt has been stated that co-productions are driving world production these days, and I have been urging U.S. producers to look at the opportunities that international coproductions offer them. While it is not their salvation, nor is it the right path for all indie producers; it is creating a new and exciting vitality in world cinema. Given the major studios’ current investing in international productions and their film acquisitions to supply a pipeline for their off shore operations; given the German and French financial encouragement for English language coproductions, over the last couple of years...
