    Sunday November 30th 2008

    MONTREAL – Alliance Films, Canada’s leading film distributor, has paid all of its approximately $400 million debt, putting it in a stronger position to pounce on new films and ink output deals. The transaction was approved by the board of directors and by its shareholders, the Quebec government investment arm[…]

  • Industry tries to avoid another format war
    Friday November 28th 2008

    3-D homevideo is set to make a splash next year, with manufacturers coming out with rigs that use two competing styles of glasses and even some that don’t need glasses at all.

In a message to SAG’s 120,000 members sent Wednesday, SAG president Alan Rosenberg said a strike would be called by the national board “only if it becomes absolutely necessary.”

  • Michael Cera comedy flies under radar
    Thursday November 27th 2008

    Look at most movie databases, and you’ll find no mention of a new film called “Paper Hearts.” But talk to indie film insiders and the unconventional comedy, which stars Michael Cera and boasts other credits from Judd Apatow’s talent stable, and you’ll quickly realize how high expectations are running for this semi-secret project that’s expected to debut at next year’s Sundance Film Festival. “It’s pretty much ‘the one,’ at least as far as festival programmers are concerned,” one seller said.
