Still wondering when we will get to see this. Here is the latest info I can find (June 23rd).

Titles which have excited buyers include Moviehouse’s Funny Cow, charting the rise of a female comedienne through the 1970’s and 1980’s industrial Northern England and starring Maxine Peake and Paddy Considine. Seven minutes of footage were shown of the film, which was pre-bought for the UK by eOne last year.

The most well-attended screening was Paddy Considine’s Journeyman, sold by Cornerstone Films. Trip To Spain (sold by Goalpost) likewise attracted a big audience.

Distributors were very curious about Morrissey biopic, England Is Mine, screening to the industry in advance of its world premiere at the Edinburgh Film Festival on 2nd July. Sales agent Hanway is already fielding offers for the film.

Other films spoken about with enthusiasm by buyers included April’s Daughter (sold by Protagonist), British horror comedy Double Date (sold by Film Constellation), My Pure Land (Independent), Please Stand By starring Dakota Fanning (and sold by Embankment) and AMP International’s Songbird.

Some buyers also warmed to several of the titles introduced by Ben Roberts in a BFI showcase on Monday, among them Clio Barnard’s Dark River, Even When I Fall, Sophie Fiennes’ Grace Jones documentary Grace Jones: Bloodlight And Bami, love story horror film Beast, Andrew Hulme’s The Devil Outside, teen comedy Old Boys and Haifaa Al-Mansour’s Mary Shelley.

TIFF 2017 – Sep 7-17
https://www.tiff.net/tiff/


Quote
  brass at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) unveiled on Thursday the 12 films that comprise this year’s Platform programme.

The line-up opens with Armando Iannucci’s satire The Death Of Stalin (pictured), and includes Mike White’s US comedy Brad’s Status starring Ben Stiller, and Clio Barnard’s UK selection Dark River.

Warwick Thornton’s Australian western Sweet Country closes the section. Every entry is a world premiere except Sweet Country and Xavier Legrand’s Custody, both of which premiere in Venice.

The films represent eight countries and will compete for the Platform Prize awarded by a jury comprising filmmakers Chen Kaige, Malgorzata Szumowska and Wim Wenders.

This will mark the third year of Platform., designed to showcase “original voices in contemporary cinema.” Previous selections include this year’s best picture Oscar winner Moonlight, Lady Macbeth, Land Of Mine, and Jackie.

“The films unveiled today embody our bold vision for the programme, and our ongoing commitment to showcase artistic and inventive directors that fearlessly push boundaries,” TIFF CEO and director Piers Handling said. “The twelve titles exemplify bravery, dynamism and a unique voice in storytelling that we look for when curating the Platform programme.”

“Platform is the place to look for the distinct stamp of today’s most interesting directors as they establish their reputations,” TIFF artistic director Cameron Bailey said. “It’s important that the Platform jury also reflects original thinking in cinema. We’re thrilled to bring together Wim Wenders, Chen Kaige and Malgorzata Szumowska, each one responsible for bringing visionary films into the world.”

Clio Barnard's 'Dark River' gets UK deal
Quote
 
EXCLUSIVE: Protagonist closes key sale on TIFF premiere.


Clio Barnard’s highly anticipated third feature Dark River has been picked up for UK distribution by Arrow Films.

Protagonist Pictures is handling sales on the title, which is set to premiere at Toronto International Film Festival (Sept 7-17) in the Platform strand.

The deal was negotiated by Protagonist’s manager of international sales George Hamilton and Arrow Films’ acquisitions director Tom Stewart.

Written and directed by Barnard (The Arbor, The Selfish Giant) and inspired by Rose Tremain’s novel Trespass, the film stars Ruth Wilson, Mark Stanley and Sean Bean in the story of a woman who returns to her hometown for the first time in 15 years following the death of her father.

There, she encounters her older brother, a man she barely recognises after his long struggle to keep the family farm going while caring for their sick father.

It was produced by Barnard’s long-term producer Tracy O’Riordan of Moonspun Films with Left Bank Pictures’ Lila Rawlings, Andy Harries and Suzanne Mackie executive producing.

Further executive producers were Lizzie Francke, Rose Garnett, Polly Stokes, Hugo Heppell and Meroë Candy.

“Clio Barnard has created a powerful and emotional drama that explores the fragility of familial relationships,” said Hamilton. “It is sure to resonate with audiences, and we are thrilled to partner with Arrow for the home territory release.”

Tom Stewart added: ”We are incredibly proud to be releasing Clio Barnard’s third feature which we feel is a truly outstanding piece of British film-making. 0n a separate note, we’re completely thrilled to be working with everyone at Protagonist Pictures on this incredibly exciting release”.

I wonder if he will go to TIFF? He was smashing gorgeous in 2015. But this maybe conflicts with Il Medici filming.

Special Presentation

Dark River

Clio Barnard (The Arbor, The Selfish Giant) adapts Rose Tremain’s Trespass, relocating the action to Yorkshire, where two siblings come into conflict over a family inheritance.

Following the death of their father, two siblings struggle to come to terms with their inheritance in Clio Barnard’s searing, eloquent response to Rose Tremain’s Trespass. Fiercely holding on to a promise made long-ago, independently-minded Alice (Ruth Wilson) returns home for the first time in 15 years to claim the family farm. Her grieving brother Joe (Mark Stanley) has spent years looking after their father (Sean Bean) and has scarcely kept the property afloat. Estranged for so long they can barely communicate, Alice soon incurs her brother’s wrath when she claims legal tenancy. As tensions mount, troubling memories surface and the real reason for her prolonged absence is revealed. One of contemporary British cinema’s most distinctive filmmakers, Barnard follows The Selfish Giant (LFF2013) and Sutherland Award-winner The Arbor (LFF2010) with another emotionally raw, Yorkshire-set drama. Her expressive use of landscape and Adriano Goldman’s haunting camerawork amplify two commanding performances, Wilson’s displaying all the power and vulnerability so evident in her recent TV (The Affair) and stage (Hedda Gabler) work, with Stanley (Game of Thrones) equally compelling as a man who has squandered his life in denial of the past.

“Dark River ”— Written and Directed by Clio Barnard

What it’s about: Ruth Wilson stars in British filmmaker Clio Barnard’s atmospheric and layered drama about the old wounds and bitter new grievances that come to light when a woman returns home to settle the tenancy of her family’s Yorkshire farm.

Why we’re interested: Sibling drama, old grudges, and gendered societal expectations collide in “Dark River.” In a soon-to-be-published interview, Barnard told us that “it is a film about how damaging it is to be silenced and to bury the past, about how as children we can feel we failed to protect our siblings and can carry misplaced guilt with us for the rest of our lives. It is also about acceptance, putting the past to rest.”

TIFF 2017 Women Directors: Meet Clio Barnard — “Dark River”

Quote

Clio Barnard is a director whose films have won her The Douglas Hickox Award at the British Independent Film Awards (BIFAs), Best Screenplay at the Evening Standard British Film Awards, and Best British Newcomer at the BFI London Film Festival.

Her previous works include “The Selfish Giant” and “The Arbor.” Dark River” is Barnard’s third feature film.

“Dark River” will premiere at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival on September 10.

W&H: Describe the film for us in your own words.

CB: Framed by PJ Harvey singing a folk song setting of a traditional children’s rhyme “My Father Gave me an Acre of Land,” I see “Dark River” as a folk tale about the exploitation of a woman’s body and the land.

W&H: What drew you to this story?

CB: I was inspired by “Trespass,” a novel written by Rose Tremain. I was interested in the relationship between the adult siblings whose dispute over the neglected family farm forces both of them to confront a past they have developed different strategies to suppress.

W&H: What do you want people to think about when they are leaving the theater?

CB: In part it is a film about how damaging it is to be silenced and to bury the past, about how as children we can feel we failed to protect our siblings, and can carry misplaced guilt with us for the rest of our lives.

It is also about acceptance, putting the past to rest, about the difficulty of that process. By the end the siblings are able to reconnect. I hope people will think about the complexity of sibling relationships when there is trauma within the family.

W&H: What was the biggest challenge in making the film?

CB: The subject matter.

W&H: How did you get your film funded? (Is it a studio film, a crowdsourced film, somewhere in between?) Share some insights into how you got the film made.

CB: The film was financed by BFI, Film4, Screen Yorkshire, and the Wellcome Trust.

W&H: What does it mean for you to have your film play at the Toronto International Film Festival?

CB: I’m absolutely thrilled! I’m especially thrilled to be in the prestigious Platform section, which is a very special part of the festival.

W&H: What’s the best you’ve received?

CB: Best advice: Cast well, crew well.

Clio Barnard talks Toronto premiere 'Dark River'
Quote
The journey from Trespass the novel (set in rural France) to Dark River the resulting film (set on a Yorkshire farm, and named after a poem by Yorkshire-born Ted Hughes) would prove to be transformative — which, when you consider the distance between her narrative feature debut The Selfish Giant (2013) and its Oscar Wilde source material, is perhaps no great surprise. What remained intact were Trespass’s themes of past incestuous sexual abuse bubbling to the surface years later through the conflict over land between a sister and brother.

Sean Bean was cast in the pivotal role of the deceased father Richard, who is seen in flashbacks. His scenes, with the teen versions of the siblings (Esme Creed-Miles, Aiden McCullough), were significantly reduced in the edit. “Once you start shooting, often things that you had on the page, you don’t need on the screen,” says Barnard. 

 “Working with the flashbacks was really hard, and the edit took longer than we thought, based on our previous experiences,” acknowledges Barnard. “The subject matter in Dark River is delicate, so little changes made a massive difference.”
