    Ethiopia's First Academy Award Submission

    This year for the first time in history, an Ethiopian film, The Athlete aka Atletu (ISA: Arrow), has been submitted to the Academy for consideration for the Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Language film. Over the years, the Best Foreign Language Film Award has been given almost exclusively to European films: out of the 62 awards handed out by the Academy since 1947 to foreign language films, fifty-one have gone to European films, five to Asian films, three to films from the Americas, and three to African films (1969 Z from Algeria directed by Costa Gavras who is French, 1976 Black and White in Color directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud who is F...

    Documentary Short List Posted by the Academy

    IndieWIRE and all the trades have listed the shortlisted documentaries submiitted for nomination for Best Documentary Oscar 2010. Unfortunately for me, I have not seen all the 15 shortlisted docs (30% of which are directed by women ♀). But I have seen a few and heard about many of the others. Of those that should have been on the list, personally the two I miss most are Cave of Forgotten Dreams by the ever vigorous German New Film survivor, Werner Herzog (see what Patrick Goldstein has to say about that!) and Sundance premiere, A Film Unfinished, the extraordinary testament to the Warsaw Ghetto, created as cinematic propaganda by the Nazi...

    SXSW Party in L.A.

    Perhaps it was because it was the first night of AFM, or perhaps it was a prequel to the first night of AFI Fest, but whatever the occasion, it was a great party Wednesday night at The Cat and Fiddle on Sunset Boulevard given by SXSW Film Conference and Festival. Janet Pierson was the regal hostess and everyone seemed to have a film in post. From Janet Grillo with Fly Away, Seth Nagel, Stephen Israel with three films in post no less: I Am Ben, Audrey and The Secret Lives of Dorks, Matt Wahl to Sam Kitt whose Cherry is screening at AFM and being sold by Unified. Many others were there including Chris and Lilyan Sievernich, Dana Harris and h...

    Our Daily ISA (International Sales Agent): Bleiberg Entertainment and its genre label Compound B

    I asked Roman Kopelevich, chief of sales for Ehud Bleiberg's company to send me information on the company which stands out as a U.S. based company which produces and sells quality films both in U.S. and in Israel. Producer Ehud Bleiberg launched Beverly Hills-based production and international sales company Bleiberg Entertainment in September 2005 after 12 years as Chairman & CEO of another international production, distribution and sales company he co-founded in 1993. At that time when he and his partner arrived in L.A. from Israel, the film community was curious to know how the "new Israelis" would fit in. Others had come and gone, leav...
