2023 Eurimages: Oliver Laxe, Cherien Dabis, Anders Thomas Jensen, Ana Asensio, Jérémy Comte, Ariane Labed & Rúnar Rúnarsson Receive Coin

Eurimages have announced their second wave of projects receiving some co-production funding coin. Among the filmmakers and projects that caught our eye on we find Olla filmmaker Ariane Labed‘s feature debut Sisters (an Irish-UK-Germany-Greece production) landing €350,000. This is an English-language adaptation of Daisy Johnson’s novel which follows two sisters who move to the countryside with their maniac depressive mother. Can’t wait for the casting on this one. Fauve filmmaker Jérémy Comte landed some significant coin for his debut as well for Paradise (a Canada-France production) which is expected to move into production late this year. Most Beautiful Island (2017) filmmaker Ana Asensio finally mounts her sophomore project in Goat Girl (a Spanish-Romanian production). Francesca Comencini‘s Prima la vita, poi il cinema (which is expected to move into production this August) receives a significant chunk of change. Some Directors’ Fortnight alumni in Rúnar Rúnarsson and Oliver Laxe each receive coin for their next projects. Men & Chicken (2015) and Riders of Justice (2020) filmmaker Anders Thomas Jensen lands euros for Back To Reality and Cherien Dabis makes her long-awaited return to cinema with All That’s Left of You.
