Thanks to @Mel452

“The idea was to once again bring together the actress who impressed me the most – Kristen Stewart – with the director who impressed me the most, in a ghost story.” explains Charles Gillibert. “If the movie industry hates prototypes, me, I love them.”

Woody Allen’s #CafeSociety to open the 69th Cannes Film Festival
Categories event: Cannes Film Festival media: articles movie: cafe society pictures: production stills

Woody Allen’s #CafeSociety to open the 69th Cannes Film Festival : The 69th Festival International du Film de Cannes will launch with a screening of Woody Allen’s new film,Café Society, on Wednesday 11 May in the Palais des Festivals’s Grand Théâtre Lumière as an Official Selection Out of Competition title. It’s a record-breaking coup for the New York director who has already opened the Festival twice, in 2002 with Hollywood Ending, and again in 2011 with Midnight in Paris.

The film tells the story of a young man who arrives in Hollywood during the 1930s hoping to work in the film industry, falls in love, and finds himself swept up in the vibrant café society that defined the spirit of the age.

Café Society features two rising stars from Hollywood’s up-and-coming generation, Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg alongside a stellar cast of acclaimed actors including Blake Lively, Parker Posey and Steve Carell. Stewart climbed the Red Carpet Steps at Cannes in 2012 for On the Road by Walter Salles and then in 2014 for Olivier Assayas’s Clouds of Sils Maria, which earned her a César. Jesse Eisenberg starred in Louder than Bombs by Joachim Trier, In Competition last year.

Woody Allen also joined forces with Vittorio Storaro for the film. The eminent director of photography was a member of the Feature Film jury in 1991 and is a three-time Oscar winner for Apocalypse Now by Francis Ford Coppola in 1980, Reds by Warren Beatty in 1982, and The Last Emperor by Bernardo Bertolucci in 1988.

From Manhattan in 1979 to Irrational Man in 2015, this will be the fourteenth Out of Competition selection at Cannes for the American director, screenwriter, actor, writer and comedian. […]

Café Society was produced by Letty Aronson (Gravier Productions), Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson, as a co-production with Helen Robin (Perdido Productions). Executive producers were Ronald L. Chez, Adam B. Stern and Marc I. Stern. The film was sold by FilmNation Entertainment and distributed on French territory by Mars Films.

In France, its release in cinemas is scheduled to coincide with the official opening of the Festival de Cannes on Wednesday 11 May, 2016.

The opening ceremony, hosted by Laurent Lafitte, will be broadcast by Canal +.

The 69th Festival International du Film de Cannes will take place between 11 and 22 May, 2016. The Competition Jury will be presided over by George Miller, and the Official Selection titles are due to be announced on 14 April.

Woody Allen #CafeSociety Set for Cannes Film Festival, in the running for opening night

Variety : It’s shaping up to be a strong year for American filmmakers at the Cannes Film Festival, with Sean Penn’s “The Last Face,” Woody Allen’s “Cafe Society” and Jeff Nichols’ “Loving” set to make their world premieres on the Croisette.

While festival delegate general Thierry Fremaux and his selection committee still have many titles to screen and many decisions to make before nailing down their lineup in mid April, the film slate is starting to come into focus with a marked emphasis on starry English-language fare, as already signaled by the announcement earlier this week that Jodie Foster’s “Money Monster,” with George Clooney and Julia Roberts, is Cannes-bound.

A slot in the official selection has already been reserved for “Loving,” Nichols’ civil rights drama starring Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga as an interracial couple in 1958 Virginia. Set to open theatrically Nov. 4 through Focus Features, the film would mark a return to Cannes for Nichols after “Take Shelter” (2011, Critics’ Week) and “Mud” (2012, competition). It would also put him in the rare company of directors who have had different films play Berlin and Cannes in the same year, having recently competed for the Golden Bear with the just-released “Midnight Special.”

A likely competition slot awaits “The Last Face,” Penn’s drama starring Charlize Theron and Javier Bardem as aid workers who fall in love against the backdrop of war-torn Liberia. Already stirring gossip as it will put Penn and Theron on the red carpet after they broke off their engagement last year, the film marks a return to Cannes for the actor-turned-director after his helming debut, “The Indian Runner” (1991, Directors’ Fortnight) and “The Pledge” (2001, competition). Penn served as president of the official Cannes jury in 2008.

Also set to bow in Cannes is Woody Allen’s until-recently-untitled 1930s romance “Cafe Society,” starring Kristen Stewart, Bruce Willis and Jesse Eisenberg. Set to be released by Amazon Studios (rather than the director’s usual distributor, Sony Pictures Classics), Allen’s film will screen, per his usual preference, in an out-of-competition slot. The director was at Cannes just last year with “Irrational Man.”

While an opening-night film has yet to be decided, “Cafe Society” is said to be one of a few films in the running. Allen previously opened the festival in 2011 with “Midnight in Paris.”

The 69th Cannes Film Festival runs May 11-22.

‘Certain Women’ Sells to IFC Films, to be released this year

The Wrap : Kelly Reichardt directed the movie, which is based on the Montana-based short stories of Maile Meloy

IFC Films announced today that the company is acquiring US rights to Kelly Reichardt‘s CERTAIN WOMEN. The film, written and directed by Reichardt and based on the short stories of Maile Meloy, stars Laura Dern, Kristen Stewart, Michelle Williams, James Le Gros, Jared Harris, Lily Gladstone and René Auberjonois. The film was produced by Neil Kopp, Vincent Savino and Anish Savjani of filmscience and was executive produced by Todd Haynes and Larry Fessenden. CERTAIN WOMEN had its World Premiere at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival in the Premieres section and will be released later this year. Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions’ Stage 6 Films acquired worldwide rights to the film prior to the start of production and will distribute internationally.

In CERTAIN WOMEN, the lives of a lawyer, a ranch hand and a married couple intersect across the state of Montana. But this is not the hard-scrabble West we’ve come to know through movies. This is a New West where the men are struggling to get their lives right in the face of aging, injury, bad luck and wrong moves–and the women are imperfectly blazing a trail. Laura (Dern) is sent in to calm her client Fuller (Harris) during a hostage situation. A quasi land grab is orchestrated by Gina (Williams), whose husband Ryan (Le Gros) reluctantly goes along with it. And a ranch hand (Gladstone) is left to long for Elizabeth (Stewart), who passes through town while she stays at the ranch and tends to her chores.

Notes Jonathan Sehring, President of Sundance Selects/IFC Films: “The entire team at IFC Films have long been fans of Kelly and are thrilled to finally be working with her – she is a master at her craft and one of the most distinct storytellers working in cinema today. Along with her amazing cast of Kristen Stewart, Laura Dern, Lily Gladstone and Michelle Williams, Kelly has created another treasure that confirms her as one of our great American filmmakers. We can’t wait to bring it to the theaters for audiences to see.”

The filmmakers added: “We’re thrilled to be working with IFC Films. Their enthusiasm for the film was amazing, and we very much look forward to collaborating with their team on its release this year.”

The deal was negotiated by Arianna Bocco, SVP of Acquisitions from Sundance Selects/IFC Films, with UTA Independent Film Group on behalf of the filmmakers.

IFC Films is a sister label to Sundance Selects and IFC Midnight, and is owned and operated by AMC Networks Inc.

Kristen is on the Cover of AnOther Magazine !

Kristen is on one of five covers of AnOther Magazine SS2016 The Party Issue, to celebrate the 15 years anniversary of the magazine.

AnOther : “Parties and magazines have always gone hand in hand, and never more so than in the history of AnOther Magazine,” Jefferson Hack writes in the editor’s letter which opens the issue. “There have been costume-ball parties, private house parties, parties in libraries, after-hours parties, contemporary art parties, rooftop parties, regal garden parties, private boat parties, parties at off-grid locations, modern dance parties and even movie premiere parties.”

It makes perfect sense, therefore, that the 15th anniversary issue of AnOther Magazine takes the form of a party – a raucous but intimate, exuberant but reflective celebration of the most provocative and captivating people, ideas and attitudes of the moment. And to lead the proceedings, our four unique cover stars act as dream party hosts – each of whom defines the AnOther woman. Meet our hosts here.

Actress Kristen Stewart’s rebellious energy is given a romantic twist in photographs by Paolo Roversi, styled by AnOther Magazine’s Fashion Director Katie Shillingford. Accompanying the shoot is a Parisian tête-à-tête with actor and artist Benn Northover, in which the pair consider the strength of focus and subversive spirit which have landed Stewart supporting actress trophies from the New York Film Critic’s Circle and the César awards.

The Spring/Summer 2016 Party issue of AnOther Magazine goes on sale internationally on February 18, 2016. You can order it on the magazine official boutique or on Newsstand.

Chanel names Kristen as the new face of ‘Collection Eyes 2016’

Shot by Mario Testino

WWD : Chanel has named Kristen Stewart the face of its makeup collection.

The actress will appear in a campaign called Collection Eyes 2016, which was photographed by Mario Testino and is to break in March.

Stewart posed for a series of portraits that incarnate the different facets of a contemporary woman, according to Chanel.

Stewart is no stranger to the house. In 2013, she fronted the advertising for the Métiers d’Art Paris-Dallas collection. She also starred in the short film “Once and Forever,” lensed by Karl Lagerfeld for the Métiers d’Art fashion show in Rome last December.

#CertainWomen Q&A at Sundance – January 24th, 2016


Vanity Fair : Since retiring the Twilight franchise, Kristen Stewart has been refreshingly candid about wanting to use her box-office power to help greenlight the projects she really wants to make at this stage in her career—independent films. And after a string of interesting titles like Camp X-Ray, Still Alice, and Clouds of Sils Maria—the last of which earned her France’s high acting prize, cementing her screen cred as a dramatic actress—Stewart flew into Park City on Sunday to debut her latest indie picture, Kelly Reichardt’s Certain Women.

Interview with Vanity Fair

Vanity Fair : The Clouds of Sils Maria, recovering from a film shoot on which she felt “genuinely closer to death on a movie than I‘ve ever felt,” is looking toward the future—like directing, or maybe even an Oscar nomination.

Kristen Stewart has what she calls “dropped on my ass” syndrome. Returning to Los Angeles just before Christmas after a “long week of work,” she’s still recovering from a shoot with Olivier Assayas—not Clouds of Sils Maria, the film for which she won France’s César Award and is a best-supporting-actress Oscar hopeful, but Personal Shopper, a new film that Stewart calls a “thoughtful, really meditative ghost story.”

And, not for nothing, maybe the hardest movie she’s ever made. “I genuinely felt closer to death on a movie than I’ve ever felt,” Stewart says. “It’s like 16-hour days, six days a week, running my fucking ass around Paris. Literally nonstop running.” And the film, now in post-production, isn’t easy on the mind, either. “[Assayas] sort of gave me this opportunity for a short period of time to contemplate infinity in a really disarming and scary way, that’s like little questions that you ignore when you lay your head down on your pillow at night. Like, ‘I’m alone, who am I?’ All those things, they plague her.”
