Tilva Rosh Wins in Estoril; Europa Distribution Conference Hosts 60 Distributors


Nikolai Lezaic's drama has picked up the Best Film Award and the Cineuropa Award at the fourth Estoril Film Festival in Portugal.

Regine Vial, president of Europa Distribution and head of distribution at Les Films Du Losange, presented the key elements of legislation recently passed in France outlining French distributors' contribution to the digitalisation of screens.

The new legislation ensures that the French ministry of culture provides a [euro]125m subsidy for the cost of equipment required for digital conversion, non-film related industries such as sport and theatre, which are increasingly using digital cinemas to show events, make a contribution to the VPF, and crucially that the cost of digitalisation is cheaper than the costs incurred in producing and distributing 35mm prints. …
