Art Cinema = Action + Management

The first round of submissions to join the CICAE training programme Art Cinema = Action + Management closed on March 31. Selections will be made at the beginning of April and the first spots and scholarships will be assigned.

The second round of applications will be open from April 6 to May 15.

This year’s focus will be to strengthen participants’ knowledge of business management and budgeting, while offering them the possibility to network with international peers in order to understand better how to successfully manage an art cinema in the present market context. Assisted by top-notch professionals, ACAM junior trainees will participate in “Restart your cinema” workshop and executive trainees will have the chance to get bespoke mentoring and support on specific challenges they deal with in their daily working life.
Once again, CICAE is collaborating with the Venice Production Bridge to organise a panel discussion within the framework of the Venice Film Festival: the round-table will focus on the actual development of film exhibition, along with a discussion with other relevant stakeholders from the industry.

Art Cinema = Action + Management (#ACAM) is taking place from August 26 to September 1 on San Servolo island in Venice, Italy.

CICAE jury at Cinélatino awarded Algunas Bestias by Jorge Riquelme Serrano
CICAE juror Toni Espinosa, from Cinemes Girona (Barcelona, Spain) together with the jurors of Europa Distribution, Margherita Chiti from Teodora Film (Italy) and Stella Kechagia from Seven Films (Greece), took part in the 31st Cinélatino Rencontres de Toulouse awarding one of the selected films of the professional programme “Cinéma en Construction 35”. The festival took place from 22 to 31 March.

The jury decided to award Algunas Bestias (Some Beasts – Chile, 2019, 95 min) by Jorge Riquelme Serrano. The film, produced by Laberinto Film, is in post-production.

The jury motivated their choice with the following statement:

“We would like to highlight the very good level of the selection: each film has a potential on its own way. Algunas Bestias is for us the most mature and complete film and we identified with the following selling points:
– not easy but facing a very important topic, a film we need to see circulating;
– brave production and brave director;
– the press will talk about the film both as a piece of good cinema both for its topic;
– the cast fits perfectly the roles and evoke a strong complicity with the director;
– the way it deals with genre cinema
We wish the best to all the film directors selected for Cinéma en Construction, we see a bright future ahead for them.”
