New film from Pascal Chaumeil, director of A Long Way Down, secures biggest support of more than $500,000; next film in the Department Q series also receives support.

Eurimages is to plough $4.7m (€4,444,000) into 18 feature films and two documentaries, following its latest meeting in London from March 9-12.

Among the titles to receive support is Walking To Paris, from British auteur Peter Greenaway, which received $300,000 (€280,000).

The biopic of sculptor Constantin Brancusi is being made with Dutch producer Kees Kasander. The film will focus on the 18 months when a 27-year-old Brancusi walked through Romania, Hungary, Austria, Germany, Switzerland and France.

The film is due to begin shooting this month in Switzerland. 

Speaking to ScreenDaily about the feature early this year, Greenaway said: “Along the way, living off the land as his years of being a shepherd boy had taught him, he had adventures - comic, violent, sexual and romantic - and certainly formative of his future sculpture, constantly building sculptures out of found materials – wood, stone, sand, snow and ice - leaving a trail of abandoned experimental temporary sculptures across the landscapes of Europe.”

The project to receive the biggest sum was Un Petit Boulot, a France-Belgium co-production from director Pascal Chaumeil, whose last title was English-language comedy-drama A Long Way Down, starring Pierce Brosnan and Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul.

The new film will be produced by Gaumont and Belgium’s Scope Pictures.

Scoring the second largest amount was Hans Petter Moland’s A Conspiracy Of Faith, the third instalment in the Department Q series of Danish crime thrillers. It secured $425,000 (€400,000).

The film, produced by Zentropa, follows the highly successful The Keeper Of Lost Causes and The Absent One. Sundance Selects already has North American distribution rights for the film.
