NALIP CONFERENCE 8 CO-CHAIR PANCHO MANSFIELD JOINS FOX TV

Fox Television Studios has beefed up its ranks, recruiting former Spike TV scripted programming head Pancho Mansfield and two others.

Mansfield, who officially joins the production company today, will serve as senior VP of programming. Diego Suarez joins as senior VP, handling international co-productions, and Karyn Smith has been added as director.

"This is a little studio with big dreams, and this trio will be a fundamental part of realizing those dreams," said Fox TV Studios scripted programming exec VP David Madden.

Mansfield replaces Marney Hochman Nash, who left last month to head up Shawn Ryan's new Midd Kid Prods. shingle. He'll work alongside Fox TV Studios' other programming execs, Nancy Cotton and Matt Loze, and report to Madden.

"Pancho is a star, one of the most respected and admired executives in the television business, and I think it's an extraordinary coup that we've landed him," Madden said. "He's passionate about what he does, painstaking in pushing things forward, an ardent champion and a shrewd judge of talent, specializing in gritty, ambitious programming."

Mansfield had served as exec VP and head of original programming at Spike since 2005; while there, he developed programming such as "The Kill Point," "Blade: The Series" and "MANswers." Before that, he spent 14 years at Showtime, handling projects such as "The Tudors," "Queer as Folk" and "Stargate SG-1."

After years as a buyer, Mansfield said he'd been looking for an opportunity to move into a selling role.

"I felt it was time to get closer to the material," he said. "This was something that was in the back of my brain for a while, and I put the word out that I was looking to go to a TV studio. I heard David was looking, and I liked the breadth of what they were doing. ... As a buyer, FTVS is one of the places I wanted to buy projects from."

As for Suarez, Madden said the exec was first brought to his attention by Fox TV Studios prexy Emiliano Calemzuk. Like Calemzuk, Suarez comes to the studio from Fox Intl. Channels, Italy, where he was VP, head of production and managing director for Fox Factory Europe.

Smith comes to Fox TV Studios from Endeavor, where she worked in the TV lit department and helped put together "Chuck."

Fox TV Studios' programming slate includes "The Shield," "The Riches," "Burn Notice," "Saving Grace," "The Girls Next Door" and "Talkshow With Spike Feresten."

MIKE MEDAVOY

Sample some of the best American films over the past 25 years and there's a good chance Mike Medavoy played a role in the success of many of them. From agent to studio chief, he has been involved with over 300 feature films. As vice president in charge of the motion picture department of International Famous Agency in 1971, he worked with such prestigious clients as Steven Spielberg, Terrence Malick, Jane Fonda, Donald Sutherland and Gene Wilder, among others. United Artists brought him in as senior vice president of production in 1974, and he was part of the team responsible for One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Rocky, and Annie Hall, which won the Best Picture Oscars over three successive years.

In 1978 Medavoy co-founded Orion Pictures. During his tenure Platoon, Amadeus, RoboCop, Hannah and Her Sisters, The Terminator, Dances with Wolves and The Silence of the Lambs were released. In 1990, after 12 fruitful years at Orion, Medavoy became Chairman of TriStar Pictures. Under his aegis, critically acclaimed box office successes, Philadelphia, Terminator 2: Judgment Day (with Carolco), Sleepless in Seattle, Cliffhanger (with Carolco), The Fisher King, Legends of the Fall, and Steven Spielberg's Hook debuted. Of all the films he has been involved with, 16 have been nominated for Best Picture Oscars and seven have won.

Today, as Chairman and CEO of Phoenix Pictures, Medavoy has brought to the screen Miss Potter, The People vs. Larry Flynt, Apt Pupil, The Thin Red Line, Dick, and The 6th Day and many others.

FILM FEST BRING HISPANIC STORIES INTO FOCUS

Oct. 15, 2007 - (IndyStar.com) - As it turns 16, the Heartland Film Festival is growing up and going global. With more than 600 films that competed for a slot this year, it's clear that Heartland is "not just a sweet little Midwestern film festival" anymore, in the words of Hollywood producer/director Mike Tollin ("Radio"). Heartland, which opens Thursday, has always had an international flavor, with movies from a variety of countries and languages. This year, more than a quarter of the 47 films have a foreign influence, with a special emphasis on Spanish-language films that organizers hope will lure the local Hispanic community.

RODRIGUEZ OUTDOES TARATINO ON "PLANET TERROR" DVD

Oct. 14, 2007 - (New York Post) - Hot on the heels of Quentin Tarantino's "Death Proof" comes the other half of the former double-feature known as "Grindhouse." And while "Planet Terror" was the weaker of the two films, director Robert Rodriguez has whupped Quentin's butt when it comes to DVD packaging. But before we go further, first the bad news: In his commentary track - something Tarantino didn't even bother to do for "Death Proof" - Rodriguez confirms what many fans have suspected all along: Sometime soon, a comprehensive "Grindhouse" edition will be rolled out, containing both movies as well as footage and extras not included on this or the "Death Proof" double disc. Guess they had to make their money back on this theatrical disaster somehow. FULL STORY HERE


NEW SPIKE LEE FILM STARTS SHOOTING

Oct. 15, 2007 - (Newsday.com) - Shooting begins this week in Rome's famed Cinecitta movie studios on Spike Lee's "Miracle at St. Anna," a fact-based World War II drama whose stars include James Gandolfini, John Leguizamo, Derek Luke, Michael Ealy, Omar Benson Miller and Laz Alonso.Adapted from the critically-acclaimed book of the same name by its author, James McBdire ("The Color of Water"), "Miracle at St. Anna" tells the story of four members of the all-black 92nd Army division trapped behind enemy lines in an Italian village who battle besieging Nazi troops with help from the locals.

"HISTORIES" AND "MY LIFE INSIDE" WIN IN MORELIA

Oct. 14, 2007 - (indieWIRE) - Nicolas Pereda's "Where Are Their Histories?" (Donde estan sus historias?) won the jury prize in the first competition for Mexican feature films at the Morelia International Film Festival in Mexico, which wraps up tonight (Sunday). Lucia Gaja's "My Life Inside" (Mi Vida Dentro) won the jury prize for best documentary at the 5th annual festival in the state capital of Michoacan. Francisco Franco Alba's "Quemar Las Naves" won the narrative audience award and Paul Grivas & Eugene Zapata's "Angahuan" won the documentary audience award. FULL STORY HERE


FILMS THAT LOOK BEYOND BORDERS

Oct. 7, 2007 - (The Boston Globe) - In a vivid example of how much foreign cultures have crossed and merged, the Boston Latino International Film Festival opens Friday with a movie that's set in. . . Montreal. "Imitation" follows a Mexican woman played by Vanessa Bauche ("Amores Perros") who travels to Canada to look for the husband who has left her. Director Federico Hidalgo also based his previous film, "A Silent Love," in Montreal and Mexico. In an interview with the website cinema-quebecois.net when the earlier film came out, Hidalgo noted that "so many images and ideas circulate about what places are really like that everybody comes to the film with certain expectations about Mexico and Mexicans, Canada and Canadians."
