Charlie Sheen, Peter Greenaway to Attend Baja Fest
The Baja International Film Festival kicks off with Juan Jose Campanella's "Foosball."
MEXICO CITY -- Charlie Sheen, Peter Greenaway and Oscar winner Juan Jose Campanella will attend the 2nd Baja International Film Festival in November, an emerging industry-focused event held in Los Cabos.
The four-day fest, which runs Nov. 13-16, opens with Campanella's animated feature Foosball (Metegol), a big-budget soccer-themed picture from the director of the Academy Award winner The Secret in Their Eyes.
British director Greenaway will talk about his latest production, the biopic Eisenstein in Guanajuato, which focuses on Russian director Sergei Eisenstein's stay in Guanajuato, Mexico, in 1930. An admirer of Eisenstein, Greenaway
says the movie is a certain type of homage to the helmer.
Charlie Sheen, aka Carlos Estevez, will be in Baja for a screening of Robert Rodriguez's Machete Kills, in which he plays Mr. President.
The official competition section consists of eight features and documentaries from Mexico, Canada and the U.S., including Matt Johnson's Sundance winner The Dirties and Daniel Patrick Carbone's drama Hide Your Smiling Faces, which premiered at Tribeca.
Five films will have world premieres: Bering: Equilibrio y Resistencia, Filosofia Natural del Amo, Luto, El Charro Misterioso and Volando Bajo.
Baja is promoting itself as an industry-friendly event that offers a film fund, Work in Progress prizes and a sales agent workshop, with experts from Memento Films, The Match Factory, Mundial and Rise and Shine. Additionally, representatives of the Participant Media PanAmerican film initiative (a development and co-financing venture with Latin America's top producers) will be on hand to discuss their latest projects.
