International Insider: Netflix Slates; A Portrait Of Filmart; Argentina’s Film Crisis

Netflix slates in Europe, a review of Filmart, the defunding of Argentinian film and Stan's U.S. originals are in International Insider this week.

Netflix struts: At times, the past year has felt like a succession of bad news stories from the international streamers, as they pull out of local markets and axe originals from their services to reduce costs. Elsewhere, Jamie Dornan will play twins in a crime noir, Peaky Blinders maker Steven Knight is turning his attention to Ireland’s most famous stout-making family in House of Guinness(working title) and Stephen Graham, Jack Thorne and Philip Barantini will join forces once again for a one-shot drama. Indeed, during a co-pro panel in which the Hong Kong Film Development Council introduced a new scheme to bridge the continental divide, the talk was of collaboration because “there’s less money everywhere.” Later in the week, visionary filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda warned production staff in Japan are currently “not making a living in the industry.” That said, there was some good news on the deals front, with Liz revealing FIlipino studio ANIMA is tying with Project 8 Projects to co-produce Antoinette Jadaone’s teenage pregnancy drama Sunshine, and that U.S.-based Filipino filmmaker Isabel Sandoval is returning home to shoot her fourth feature, Moonglow.
