THE DISTRIBUTORS 2018: SUNDANCE SELECTS AND IFC FILMS
The series of analyzing the films that specific distribution companies have in the pipeline and their chance at playing TFF #45 continues today looking at the partnered firms of Sundance Selects and IFC Films.
Here's the recent history of Sundance Selects and IFC Films with TFF:
Looking for a probable film from these outfits this year is a difficult proposition. This again is likely a result of the growth of Amazon and Netflix within the film industry as well as the expansion of entities like A24, Neon and Annapurna.
My best prediction for a film from this combo is Roger Michell's documentary There's Nothing Like a Dame.
The doc focuses on the lives and careers of four legendary British actresses: Eileen Atkins, Joan Plowright, Judi Dench and Maggie Smith.
Another reason to think that it might make a TFF play is Roger Michell's history with the fest. Past Michell films at T-ride include Venus and Hyde Park on Hudson.
The film has no known release date at this time per IMDb all of which suggests that it could make the Labor Day lineup.

MARWEN TRAILER LOOMING
Steve Carell on the set of Welcome to Marwen
Steve Carell has a couple of projects that could end up in front of Telluride audiences by the time we get to Labor Day weekend. The more likely is Beautiful Boy co-starring actor of the moment Timothee Chalamet.
The other is, like Beautiful Boy, based on a true story of a man finding a novel way of healing himself in the aftermath of a harsh attack.
Robert Zemeckis directs Welcome to Marwen. Word from Anton Volkov/Trailer Track that a Marwen trailer drop is imminent.
Here's the story from Trailer Track.
I'll pass the trailer along as soon as possible.
That's your MTFB for this Tuesday. More to come on Thursday.
