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

  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

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.

He's not been listed as yet. But early days. Could pop in on his way to Rome!
