I Used To Be Darker
I Used To Be Darker
By Jan Naszewski

US in Progress is the first industry event in Europe devoted entirely to US-indies and focused on the completion and European distribution of American indie feature films at post-production stage. It screens works in progress of independent American films at closed screenings to a selected group of attending European professionals.

2 films out of 6, which were selected and presented in Wroclaw in 2012 were also spotted by the Berlinale programmers. The first one is Matt Porterfield's I Used To Be Darker , which will have its European premiere in the Forum section of the Berlinale. This film was awarded promotion and distribution support from Europa Distribution and CICAE at the Wroclaw event. The other film shown at the Berlinale will be Daniel Carbone's Hide Your Smiling Faces, which will have its world premiere in the Generation 14 Plus competition. The film received two post-production awards in Wroclaw: services worth $10,000 from the Warsaw-based VFX studio Platige Image, and DCP and subtitling services from DCinex and VSIParis/Chinkel worth $5,000. Most of the film's image post-production was done in Warsaw in January 2013.

Three US in Progress films also screened at Sundance this year. Hannah Fidell's A Teacher (2012 winner of US in Progress Paris) as well as I Used To Be Darker by Matt Porterfield and Milkshake by David Andalman.

US in Progress Wroclaw is organized in November by the New Horizons Association and Black Rabbit Film with the support of City of Wroclaw, Poland's Ministry of Culture and National Heritage and the American Embassy in Poland. Partners include: Platige Image, Soundflower Studio, Alvernia Studios, DCinex, VSI Paris/Chinsel, Europa Distribution, CICAE, Producers Network, IFP, Wajda Studio and US in Progress Paris.
