A feature-length anthology film. They are known as myths, lore, and folktales. Created to give logic to mankind’s darkest fears, these stories laid the foundation for what we now know as the horror genre.
As a lover of horror anthologies, it brings me no joy to find The Field Guide To Evil more rewarding in concept than practice. Eight different tales of worldwide urban legends, myths, and folklore from native filmmakers representing multiple countries. Germany, Poland, Turkey and more divulge their richest tradition-based fears, falling harder than most into the “mixed bag” nature of shorthand cinematic collaborations. Perfect lineups are rarer than spotting the

Press Release: New York, NY --- Tuesday, February 19, 2019 --- On March 29th, the terrifying new horror anthology The Field Guide To Evil will be released to theaters across America and all digital platforms. A new poster and trailer for the film debut today at fieldguidetoevil.com.
In Field Guide, eight of the most exciting new voices in international horror were asked to
Kicking off on Dec. 12 and hosted at the Cinéfabrique Film school in Lyon, the workshop will take place over three days — right before the start of Les Arcs Film Festival.
The participants include Poland’s Dawid Bodzak whose short “Tremors” won Grand Prize at Clermont Ferrand;
Israel’s Miki Polonski whose short “Ten Buildings Away” was selected for Cannes’s Cinéfondation; Spain’s Joan Vives Lozano whose short “El Escarabajo al Final de la Calle played at Clermont Ferrand. All eight filmmakers have just started developing their first film and some of them don’t have a producer yet.
The other participants are Alexandra Brodski from U.K./Russia, Monica Lima from Portugal,
Gabriela Pichler’s debut as writer-director, the youth-in-revolt dramedy “Eat Sleep Die,” never got a theatrical release. That was a shame, and it’d be just as much of a disappointment if her follow-up met the same fate. Working from an appropriately zany premise — a small Swedish town attempts to woo a German superstore company into opening a new location via a promotional video — Pichler delivers clever scenarios and a surprising
What did you learn from your research into the woman who had gone through this actual breakdown?
It was a very strong experience. I was particularly struck by the fact that Maria never really came back from that “other world.” She was talking to us normally, she seemed to remember everything, and yet she seemed somehow suspended between two worlds: the real here and now and the one that wasn’t “real,” the one of her memories.
Warsaw-based sales outfit New Europe is launching a new talent initiative in a bid to help emerging filmmakers make the next steps in their careers.
New Europe Warsaw Sessions (24-27 September) will be a closed event where six directors, picked by New Europe, will meet established decision-makers in a series of workshops and will also receive individual mentoring.
Participants at the inaugural edition are: Jan P. Matuszyński, Agnieszka Smoczyńska, Paweł Maślona, Laura Moss, Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurðsson and Jeppe Ronde.
The six will be mentored by Mike Goodridge and Julia Godzinskaya.
Deadline exclusively reported the casting of Williams and Browning in The Perfection last year. The film follows former cello prodigy (Williams) as she seeks out both her mentor (Steven Weber) and his new star pupil (Browning) with enigmatic — and twisted — intent. Shepard, Williams and Browning are set to attend the fest.
Smoczynska’s Fugue stars Polish actress Gabriela Muskala and follows a woman who is trying to reconnect with her family after being lost in a fugue state for several years. The film marks the follow-up to
Tomasz Dabrowski of Film Commission Poland likened the rebates bill to “a Copernican revolution for the Polish film industry….Poland will finally find its well-deserved place among the other European film industries.”
Strong interest here in USA’s Trump
The sales company has two other films at the festival: Natalia Garagiola’s Venice Audience Award winner “Hunting Season” and Berlin Golden Bear nominee “Dovlatov” from Alexey German Jr.
In the film, an anonymous woman stumbles across train tracks and into a crowded station with no idea who she is, and no emotional attachments. Only when she is featured on a TV talk show years later is her family finally able to contact and bring her back.
However, when reintroduced to her parents, husband and young child she is not only unable to remember them, but fairly sure she doesn’t want her old life back. She is a new person and these

The São Paulo-set film, gorgeously shot by Zama cinematographer Rui Poças, follows a nurse living outside the city who is hired to be the nanny for a wealthy woman who is about to give birth, and, of course, many secrets await. “Contrasts abound in Juliana Rojas and Marco Dutra’s terrifyingly captivating Good Manners, a horror-meets-children’s-movie that uses all the tropes at its disposal to conjure up a piercing discussion of class,
The post ‘Fugue’ Trailer: A New Thriller from the Director of ‘The Lure’ appeared first on /Film.
Memory loss is one of the oldest plot devices in the world, which makes it ripe for some kind of reinvention. The opening minutes of “Fugue” not only suggest that we’re in
Fugue is written and stars Gabriela Muskala as Alicja, a woman who suffers from memory loss who has run off and created a new life for herself as a free spirit.
After two years in the wild she returns home and tries to re-assimilate herself into her old life as wife and mother but it's not an easy process for either her or her family.
I enjoyed The Lure but found it a bit messy
Screen can exclusively reveal the first trailer for Fugue, the latest film from director Agnieszka Smoczynska which premieres in Critics’ Week at Cannes.
Smoczynska’s follow up to 2015 mermaid horror musical The Lure is about a woman who has experienced prolonged memory loss. When she comes to reunite with her family, the idea of motherhood is no longer an appealing one.
As announced by Screen last year, Alpha Violet handles sales on the project, which will premiere on May 15 at the Miramar.

20. The Man Who Killed Don Quixote (Terry Gilliam)
Hopefully a genuinely worthwhile film rather than a curio as it relates to its long-plagued production history, it’s still not precisely confirmed that Terry Gilliam’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote will actually be legally approved to premiere at the festival. Let’s hope those issues get ironed out in the next few days,
