01.15.08 Martin Scorsese's 'Shine A Light' To Open the 58th Berlin International Film Festival
The 58th Belinale has selected the ultimate Rolling Stones concert film, "SHINE A LIGHT," from Oscar®-winning director Martin Scorsese, to open the festival on February 7, 2008, with Scorsese and The Rolling Stones in attendance.

Scorsese assembled an award-winning camera team to capture the raw energy of the world's greatest rock 'n roll band in two concerts at the Beacon Theatre on October 29th and November 1st 2006. Using sixteen 35mm cameras and one Genesis Hi Def camera to shoot more than half-a-million feet of concert footage, Oscar®-winning cinematographer Robert Richardson (The Aviator, JFK) supervised a team which included several highly acclaimed directors of photography: Oscar® winner John Toll (The Last Samurai, Braveheart); Oscar® winner Andrew Lesnie (The Lord of the Rings trilogy, King Kong); Oscar® nominee Stuart Dryburgh (The Piano, The Painted Veil), Oscar® nominee Robert Elswit (Magnolia, Good Night and Good Luck); Oscar® nominee Emmanuel Lubezki (Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, Sleepy Hollow); and Ellen Kuras (Summer of Sam, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind). The film was edited by David Tedeschi, who received an Emmy nomination for his work with Scorsese on the acclaimed Bob Dylan documentary, No Direction Home: Bob Dylan.

With special guest performances from Christina Aguilera, Buddy Guy and Jack White III of the White Stripes, the two Beacon concerts form the heart of the film. "SHINE A LIGHT" also features rarely seen archival footage and current behind the scenes footage and interviews shot using additional Hi Def, DV Cam, 16mm and 8mm cameras. With this extensive camera coverage and intimacy of the setting, Scorsese has created a extraordinary musical film event and given audiences unprecedented access to the Rolling Stones both on stage and off.

Produced and financed by Steve Bing's Shangri-La Entertainment and long-time Stones tour promoter Michael Cohl's Concert Promotions International, producers are Victoria Pearman, Michael Cohl, Zane Weiner and Steve Bing. Executive producers are Stones members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood, with Jane Rose as co-executive producer.

In making the announcement, Festival Director Dieter Kosslick said "We are extremely excited to have the World Premiere of this magnificent film as our opening gala. Martin Scorsese has again set the gold standard when it comes to capturing the pure essence of an iconic band on the big screen."

The film will be released in North America on April 4th, 2008 by Paramount Classics.

that sounds cool.The Stones in Berlin.
so near, yet so far away, judging by older Berlinale pics - red carpet and all...

there's probably no way to get near them or even see the movie.
ah well, lets wait and see.

That wasnt a 'rumour'...its what we were told - officially.

and per the first paragraph of the press release for this Berlin premiere, it specifically states the Stones WILL be in attendance.

They attended the premiere of LSTNT together when it was released - no reason why they shouldnt do so for this.

Now, the desperate hunt begins to somehow wangle a ticket for this!

Er ... a question. Never been to a film festival, so I'm asking this out of total ignorance of what the f f f f f goes on at film festivals. Is the film screened ? If so, once only, or several times ? Is there an opportunity for members of the public to attend a screening, or is it only for the industry people - so to say ? Just wondering if it's worth jumping on a cheap flight to Berlin, or not ?

The official website states that press accreditation for the festival closed a month ago. I would imagine its basically an industry thing, especially for premieres. The film will of course be screened - as its the premiere. Not sure if its being entered for competition, though.

official website link here -

[www.berlinale.de]

the public CAN buy tickets for entry to the 'public programme' a few days before the festival starts on February 7th. [www.berlinale.de]

I'm not sure (in fact I doubt very much) that 'shine a Light' would fall into that category.

OK, thanks. If there's even a remote possibility of getting to see it as a humble member of the public, I'd grab a cheap flight or use some air miles. Why not ? I've asked BarRoomQueen to give them a buzz (she's a German speaker), see what they come back with ....... ?

I just called the Press Office for the BFF and they were very noncomittal about getting tickets to see Shine a Light. He asked me to send and email request to
press@berlinale.de and they would see what they can do. I have sent the email and will let you all know if I get anywhere!

Aha ... they were non committal eh ? Well this simply won't do. Sounds like having to be a case of being forced to lie through one's teeth. OK, here's the plan. Call back; you're Steve Bing, I'm Michael Cohl, Beast is Martin Scorcese, and ManOfWealthAndTaste can be Daryl Jones ... that'll fool 'em !! And we'll have 4 tickets please, PLUS another four for any mates that wanna tag along !!

Here is the reply I got from the press office.

The premiere of "Shine a light", as the opening film of this year's Berlinale, will be reserved to invited guests. The film will be screened for the public at another time. As the programme and schedule planning is still in the making, unfortunately, I can provide you neither with the exact day and time, nor with tickets.
After our programme press conference on January 29, the film schedule as well as the ticket service will be available at our website.

Thank you for your patience and best regards,

Katharina Neumann
