    By Jeremy Kay IFC Films Arianna Bocco - Executive vice-president of acquisitions and productions. A pioneer in the day-and-date theatrical and VoD model, New York-based IFC Films has been nimble in times of change and scored a hit over the summer with The Wretched, which grossed more than $1m at US drive-ins. Coming up are Sputnik, Sundance selectionThe Nest and SXSW award winner Shithouse. Will you get to any festivals in person this year? Our team does not anticipate travelling to cover festivals in person for the remainder of 2020. Digitally speaking, we will cover everything we can that makes sense for us and our acquisitions strategy. What did you learn from the virtual Cannes Marché about doing business remotely? We learned it was very efficient and inclusive. Cannes is spent running around from hotels to the Palais in between screenings, and it’s very hectic. While there’s a great buzz and excitement and adrenaline, you sometimes walk away feeling like you haven’t quite cover...

    By Louise Tutt Curzon Artificial Eye Louisa Dent - Managing director When the UK went into lockdown and it was not known for how long cinemas would remain closed, Curzon decided to release its films exclusively on its curated PVoD platform Curzon Home Cinema. Titles have included Hirokazu Kore-eda’s The Truth, Safy Nebou’s Who You Think I Am, Oliver Hermanus’ Moffie, Corneliu Porumboiu’s The Whistlers and Grimur Hakonarson’s The County. As cinemas have reopened, those films are now on theatrical release. Dent bought Roy Andersson’s About Endlessnessat the autumn festivals last year. Which festivals are you attending in person and which ones are you participating in digitally? I am hoping to be able to attend Venice physically. We usually attend and this year with the absence of a physical Cannes I realise how much I miss the people, as well as seeing films on the big screen and the excitement that goes with it. We do not usually attend San Sebastian, much as I would love to as it is...

    By Martin Blaney & Louise Tutt DCM Wiebke Andresen - Head of acquisitions DCM’s co-production Lindenberg! Mach Dein Ding, a biopic of German musician Udo Lindenberg, opened in German cinemas on January 16. It has sold more than 650,000 tickets, becoming a regular feature at drive-ins since early April. DCM released Alejandro Landes’s war story Monos in cinemas on June 4, and its co-production of Jonas Alexander Arnby’s thrillerSuicide Tourist on July 2. The only other release in 2020 is Katrin Gebbe’s Venice 2019 title Pelican Bloodon September 24. DCM has had a distribution arm in Switzerland since 2013. Which festivals are you attending in person and which ones are you participating in digitally? We will probably not be travelling to any more festivals this year except to Zurich, as we have a second headquarters there. The risk of infection is too high in many regions and keeping costs low is not wrong in the current situation, especially since there is the possibility of particip...

    By Melanie Goodfellow Pyramide Distribution Eric Lagesse - CEO Pyramide is a regular buyer on the festival circuit with upcoming releases including Sundance’s World Cinema Dramatic Competition grand jury prize winner Yalda, A Night For Forgiveness, UK comedy-drama Military Wives and Mohammad Rasoulof’s 2020 Berlinale Golden Bear winner There Is No Evil. Which festivals are you attending in person and which ones are you participating in digitally? I will participate in Venice and Toronto digitally, mainly because there are fewer films than normal and we have already seen a lot of the selections via links. I will be going to San Sebastian, however, because our film Simple Passion[directed by Danielle Arbid] is in competition there. What did you learn from the virtual Cannes Marché about doing business remotely? Nothing really. We have worked with links for years and I’ve acquired a lot of films from links. That said, I missed real screenings in theatres with the public and even the bu...

    By Geoffrey Macnab Splendid Media Erik Engelen - Director of acquisitions Amsterdam-based Splendid Media is part of Germany’s Splendid Medien group that distributes across Benelux. The company also produces its own low-budget Dutch youth-oriented Misfit comedies. In recent years, Splendid has released films including Moonlight and Hereditary and bought titles such as Fisherman’s Friends and Arab Blues last year. Are you planning to attend any of the autumn festivals? We are not going to attend anything in person. It is going to be all digital, unfortunately. The fact Toronto already has a slimmed-down version doesn’t make it very attractive. There are also travel restrictions and potential quarantine regulations. Business- wise, it is simply too complicated. Are you confident you can do business remotely? The positive points from those digital experiments such as the virtual Cannes market is that a digital component should be kept by festivals, even after the Covid-19 crisis ends. F...

    By Geoffrey Macnab Capella Film Nadezda Motina - CEO Capella Films had a box-office hit in 2019 with Green Book, winner of the Oscar for best film, and has successfully handled the Russian theatrical releases of other US films including Molly’s Game andI, Tonya. At the start of 2020, Capella had been planning to release two new titles theatrically each month but shifted strategy once the pandemic took hold and bought older titles that had not yet been released in Russia, including John Lee Hancock’s The Founder starring Michael Keaton, and Lenny Abrahamson’s Room, for VoD release. Are you planning to attend any of the autumn festivals? No. This year I will attend all the festivals digitally because it is still not clear when the borders will be open for travel. What did you learn from the virtual Cannes Marché about doing business remotely? It was an interesting and fruitful experience because everything was organised well. All the screenings started on time and you did not have to...

    By Gabriele Niola Lucky Red Stefano Massenzi - Head of acquisitions and business affairs Distributor and producer Lucky Red created the MioCinema.it streaming platform during the Italian lockdown, which split revenues with indie cinemas. Library titles joined new films such as Ladj Ly’s Les Misérables. Lucky Red bought Armando Iannucci’s The Personal History Of David Copperfieldin Toronto last year. Massenzi says the company normally buys 60% of its annual slate at Cannes. Are you planning to attend any of the autumn festivals? All of them digitally, and [CEO] Andrea Occhipinti will be at Venice. We tend to buy films before they are presented at festivals so in Venice there’s few for us to discover. We never go to San Sebastian; Toronto and AFM are more important. What did you learn from the virtual Cannes Marché about doing business remotely? It’s difficult for newcomers to attend a market with no human contact, but we’ve learned we don’t need to attend in the same way we’ve all le...

    By Matt Mueller Madman Entertainment Paul Wiegard - Co-founder and CEO Australia and New Zealand-based Madman buys films to release in both territories. Cinemas have been open since May in New Zealand and since June in some parts of Australia. Madman opened the feature version of Michael Winterbottom’sThe Trip To Greece the first week cinemas returned in New Zealand. Further releases in both territories include Josephine Decker’s Shirley and Dean Parisot’s Bill & Ted Face The Music. Are you planning to attend any of the autumn festivals? No, even travelling to our New Zealand office in Auckland is not currently possible. Fortunately, our longtime Berlin-based acquisitions executive Vera Herchenbach will represent us in Venice, along with our agent Orange Entertainment. Toronto is certainly a major festival we will participate in digitally and hope to include additional team members. What did you learn from the virtual Cannes Marché about doing business remotely? Schedule in some toi...
