Who Is Selena Gomez Kissing? (Hint: It's Not the Weeknd!)
Selena Gomez is puckering up, but The Weeknd is nowhere in sight.

But there’s no need to panic — the “Hands to Myself” singer was on the job.

Gomez was spotted passionately kissing Timothée Chalamet in the rain while shooting Woody Allen’s latest film New York City’s Central Park. The actress, 25, sported a white t-shirt for the steamy scene where she locked lips with Chalamet as they got drenched.

Details have yet to emerge about the plot of the untitled film — which also stars Jude Law, Diego Luna, Liev Schreiber and Elle Fanning — but Gomez has been seen

Diego Luna Reveals How ‘Rogue One’ Reflects the ‘Racial Diversity’ of the ‘World We Live In’
It’s rare to see someone on the verge of action-figure metamorphosis. Until now, Diego Luna was a well-respected actor (“Milk” and “Mister Lonely,” among many others) as well as a producer of TV and film, including his own directorial efforts “Mr. Pig,” “Cesar Chavez,” and “Abel.” He’s better known in his native Mexico than in the U.S.

However, as the male lead of Gareth Edwards’ “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” the first standalone feature in the rapidly expanding “Star Wars” universe, all of that will change as of December 16.

He’s giddy, if not geeky, about this turn of events. A naturally generous and fast talker, Luna punctuates his points with big hand motions and bigger smiles as he shares the same refrain that seems to be programmed into all newly minted “Star Wars” actors: They were fans first. Being cast in this cinematic universe is

Natalia Beristain Portrays the Genius and Fragility of Mexican Poet Rosario Castellanos in ‘The Goodbyes’

Natalia Beristain Portrays the Genius and Fragility of Mexican Poet Rosario Castellanos in ‘The Goodbyes’
Buenos Aires — “It’s the most singular biopic that I’ve seen in many years,” Woo Films’ Rafael Ley, one of the film’s producers, enthuses about Natalia Beristain’s second feature, “Los Adioses” (“The Goodbyes”) which screens as a work in progress at Ventana Sur’s Primer Corte on Thursday.

Beristain’s second movie, after she won Best Mexican Feature at the 2012 Morelia Festival, Mexico’s premier talent hub, with “She Doesn’t Want To Sleep Alone.” “The Goodbyes” is a portrait of Rosario Castellanos, the mid-last-century Mexican poet, novelist, essayist and early supporter of the fundamental freedoms of Mexican women.

Starring Karina Gidi (“Abel”), Daniel Gimenez Cacho (“Bad Education”) Tessa Ia (“After Lucia”) and Pedro de Tavira (“Cantinflas”), it is also a calling card for a generation of young Mexican women helmers who are beginning to shape their countries’ national cinema, as happened from early last century with

First Trailer: Diego Luna's "Mr. Pig"

Best known for his acting in films like "Y Tu Mama Tambien" and the upcoming "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," Diego Luna has also been building a career as a director with "Abel" in 2010 and "Cesar Chavez" in 2014.

He returns with the much more quirky "Mr. Pig" this year, a dramedy about an old school Georgian pig farmer (Danny Glover) who, on the brink of losing everything, hits the road with this daughter (Maya Rudolph) to find a final resting place for his beloved swine Howie.

Luna's friend Gael Garcia Bernal executive producers the film which has yet to receive U.S. distribution.

Netflix Acquires Im Global/Canana’s Mundial Title ‘The Chosen Ones’

Netflix Acquires Im Global/Canana’s Mundial Title ‘The Chosen Ones’
Netflix has acquired global rights to David Pablos’ “Las Elegidas” from Mundial, the joint sales venture of Stuart Ford’s Im Global and Canana, the production-sales company of Gael Garcia Bernal, Diego Luna and Pablo Cruz.

Produced by Cruz, Pablos’ breakthrough movie recently scored 13 nominations for Mexico’s Ariel Academy Awards. “The Chosen Ones” was also the first Spanish-speaking title to be announced last year for the Cannes Festival, where it screened in Un Certain Regard. It will bow on Netflix from May 8. Global deal obviously does not not include territories licensed by Mundial. Arp Selection, one of France’s premier art-house distributors, acquired French rights to “The Chosen Ones” in the run-up to Cannes last-year, for instance.

Written by Pablos – with Pedro Peirano, the screenwriter of Pablo Larrain’s Oscar-nominated “No” and co-scribe on Sebastian Silva’s “The Maid” serving as a script consultant – “The Chosen Ones” followed on Pablos’ debut,

‘Mr. Pig’ Co-Investor Jalisco Renews Film Fund Equity Line (Exclusive)

‘Mr. Pig’ Co-Investor Jalisco Renews Film Fund Equity Line (Exclusive)
A co-investor in Diego Luna’s Danny Glover-starrer “Mr. Pig” which screens in Sundance Premieres, Mexico’s Jalisco Film Fund is renewing for 2016 its risk equity film investment scheme, offering up to Pesos 17 million ($922,000) this year to one foreign or Mexican international co-production which shoots 40% of locations in the state of Jalisco.

Jff president Alberto Lamas Flores launched the 2016 call for applications Tuesday Jan. 26, coinciding with Sundance world premiere of “Mr. Pig,” the third fiction feature from actor-director-producer Luna, star of Amazon’s “Casanova” pilot. Luna’s first fiction feature “Abel” bowed at Sundance to acclaim in 2010.

Tapped for “Mr. Pig” by Mexico and L.A.-based Canana, founded by Luna, Gael Garcia Bernal and Pablo Cruz, the Jalisco Film Fund equity line reps the only film financing scheme in place among Mexico’s 31 states, said Jff director Rodolfo Guzman Salas.

Sundance Film Review: ‘Mr. Pig’

Sundance Film Review: ‘Mr. Pig’
Diego Luna’s third narrative directorial feature, “Mr. Pig,” stars Danny Glover and Maya Rudolph as an irascible father and long-suffering daughter on a fateful road trip from Southern California to the Jalisco region of west-central Mexico. Their seriocomic journey is colored by grace notes of direction and performance, but it’s also rather undercooked in the script department, the somewhat uneventful, not-particularly-insightful progress proceeding at a pace somewhere between leisurely and soporific. Pic will need critical support to get a leg-up in any theatrical exposure, with modest prospects in home formats.

Already evading calls from his only child Eunice (Rudolph) when we meet him, 75-year-old Ambrose (Glover) is hiding several things from her — not least the fact that he’s losing his hog farm to the bank. Nor has he informed her he’s about to hit the road on a southbound mission with his last remaining livestock, a handsome mud-colored heifer called Howie.

Taking off the table the only Spanish-language title confirmed to date for Cannes, Arp Selection, one of France’s premier arthouse distributors, has acquired French rights to David Pablos’ “The Chosen Ones” (“Las Elegidas”).

Gael Garcia Bernal Set To Direct His Second  Feature Film
Mexican multihyphenate Gael Garcia Bernal will direct a “very dark comedy” titled “Chicuarotes,” set amid the lakes in Mexico City and centered around teens who “want to become economically superior to what they are,” he said during the Doha Film Institute’s Qumra event dedicated to nurturing emerging Arab filmmakers

Bernal said his sophomore feature, which follows his 2007 directorial debut “Deficit,” is being written by Mexican scribe Augusto Mendoza, who co-penned Diego Luna’s feature film debut “Abel” and also Luna’s upcoming “Mr. Pig.”

Bernal and fellow Mexican actor/director/producer Luna are partners in Canana, the Mexico City/L.A. production house Luna founded with Bernal and Pablo Cruz and which has become a powerhouse producer for a new generation of Mexican helmers.

Mundial, the joint sales venture of Canana and Im Global, is handling international sales.

Boasting on paper some of the affectionate playful humor which made “Abel” Luna’s debut a hit, but a step up in scale and Luna’s second movie in English as a director, “Mr. Pig” turns on a farm-worker (Glover) who travels from the U.S. to Mexico, accompanied by a pig. They

Producer Cruz said: "Mr Pig is a beautiful road movie, and a chance to talk about love for Mexico through the eyes of an American.

"It has a Us appeal because of Danny and its English language. It obviously has a Mexican appeal because of Diego and other Mexican actors involved.

Review: Cesar Chavez -A Summary of a Leader's Story

From those that focus on singular defining events in a subject’s life, to those that aim to encompass an entire existence from birth to death in a matter of a couple hours, biopics are tricky feats to carry out successfully. After all, the life of a prominent individual is anything but ordinary, thus merits being translated into film. The chosen approach will determine whether the work serves as respectful homage or if it falls short. Unfortunately, Diego Luna’s Cesar Chavez fits in the second category, and not because of inadequate direction or issues with casting. Its problems are deeply rooted in the screenplay and the way in which it quickly summarizes Chavez’s struggle to deliver a satisfactory conclusion by Hollywood standards.

Structured like a bullet point-driven school presentation, the film appears as a succession of crucial events that in the end amount to a significant victory, but which also dismiss the darkness experienced by the Mexican-American leader throughout his fight. Chavez served as the voice of thousands of farm workers whose conditions were below acceptable, and for whom he felt great appreciation and respect. He felt for their suffering as he had been one of them growing up in Arizona. In the film, this is rapidly covered via voice over and the viewer is thrown into the history class-worthy facts forgetting to really give depth to Chavez as a man.

Played by Michael Peña, the Chavez portrayed here appears genuine, assertive, and honest, but it is rarely shown with the emotional complexity that person in his position must have felt. Having said this, this in no way diminishes Peña’s heartfelt performance. He is on point, and because of his great talent and commitment it is a shame the material did not provide him the challenging character that it should have. There is no denying Chavez deserves endless praise for his relentless labor, but in a film like this, straightforward glorification leaves no room for exploring the man and not simply the icon. Trying to make up for the lack of nuance written in the screenplay, the film makes a point of Chavez distant relationship with his oldest son Fernando (Eli Vargas). This never fully works with sufficient emotional weight.

As the marches, the boycotts, and other landmark protests against the greedy California growers roll out one after another, everything increasingly seems like a list of items being checked off to reach a happy ending. At the same time, the supporting characters fail to add any type of edge or interesting conflict to the story. America Ferrera as Helen Chavez only has a couple scenes where she gets to give life to the activist’s wife. A role that could have turned out enthralling settles for being generic, once again not for lack of talent from the performer but because of the genesis of the project. Rosario Dawson, as fellow activist Dolores Huerta, is equally forgettable and tragically underexploited. There is no point in expanding on the film's plot since all major occurrences are included and easily resolved, it is the lack of humanity that it is troublesome. It is sad to see such a lukewarm depiction of a passionate figure.

Cesar Chavez is Mexican superstar Diego Luna’s second feature in the director's chair - his first being the small scale Spanish-language drama Abel – and it is overall well-crafted and well-intentioned, but it certainly looks like it could have been directed by anybody else. Luna's voice as an artist has no resonance given that the screenplay by Keir Pearson forcefully wants to package all the societal and internal struggles into a formulaic piece. One that would be better suited to help teachers introduce students to the Ufw movement than to be an artistic interpretation of a man conflicted between his cause and his family. Hopefully both Luna and Peña will get a better chance in the future to create valuable work instead of didactic classroom material.

Review: Diego Luna's Well-Intentioned, Respectable & Paint-By-Numbers 'Cesar Chavez' Starring Michael Peña

  • The Playlist
An intermittently compelling overview of a movement, but only a cursory portrait of a man, “Cesar Chavez,” directed by Diego Luna, is a well-intentioned, respectable and respectful biopic. But the conservative format of the film, that never goes beyond the kind of paint-by-numbers approach that stultifies so many entries in this genre, was a disappointment, as Luna’s first directorial feature, the small-scale but affectingly odd “Abel” promised better things to come, and at the very least, showed that Luna had a knack for creating characters who were lovable as much for their flaws as for their strengths. But the Chavez we get here has no flaws, unless his choice to nobly sacrifice time with his family on the altar of a higher cause is a flaw. And of course it’s not. Chavez was a true hero, spearheading the campaign to extend union rights to the exploited migrant worker class in 1960s California,

Diego Luna, Michael Peña, Rosario Dawson Talk SXSW Audience Award Winner 'Cesar Chavez' (Exclusive Video)
We may think we know about the late great activist Cesar Chavez, founder of the United Farm Workers. We may remember their long strike and call for a grape boycott in the 60s, and his 1969 Time Magazine cover as Man of the Year, among other things.  Mexican actor-producer-director Diego Luna, who co-starred with his Canana partner Gael Garcia Bernal in Alfonso Cuaron's "Y Tu Mama Tambien," grew up in the theater, raised by his single art director dad. Luna has made some 40 films in his 34 years, mentored by Cuaron and Luis Mandoki. Luna, who made his directorial debut with fest-circuit fave "Abel" (my Sundance flipcam interview here), took on the daunting task of turning the life of Cesar Chavez into a film. In some ways movie star Garcia Bernal ("No") is the Mexican Matt Damon to Luna's Ben Affleck, in the sense that Luna has figured out his true calling: filmmaker.

Ambulante California Launches at Sundance

  • Sydney's Buzz
Recently during the latest Sundance Film Festival, Ambulante, the non-profit aimed to promote documentary as a tool for social change and cultural transformation, celebrated its upcoming U.S. launch with an Ambulante California reception. Founded by Diego Luna, Gael Garcia Bernal, and Pablo Cruz as part of Canana Films in 2005, this traveling documentary film organization presented two films during the festival Cesar's Last Fast by Richard Ray Perez and Lorena Parlee (Read Carlos Aguilar' Review) and The Measure of All Things by Sam Green and yMusic.

Both Luna and Bernal have had several films played at Sundance in diverse roles as actors, producers, and even directors. Their titles include Who Is Dayani Cristal?, Abel, Sin Nombre, and the breakthrough hit directed by Alfonso Cuaron Y Tu Mama Tambien. "Ambulante was born out of a need to create spaces for cinema in Mexico like those we encountered while traveling to other countries presenting our films" said Diego Lune about the Ambulante initiative. "Throughout the years Sundance has undoubtedly been one of the most significant platforms for me as a filmmaker, and a vital meeting point to connect with the public and artist community. It is a source of inspiration for what we have conceived up until now with Ambulante, and it is very exciting to finally realize our dream of introducing Ambulante California at Park City" concluded the multifaceted Mexican filmmaker.

Executive Director, Elena Fortes said, “We are thrilled to be here representing Ambulante for the first time at the festival. Sundance Institute is the leading champion of supporting urgent non-fiction stories and developing the independent and courageous filmmakers of our time. Through our traveling platform, Ambulante strengthens that shared mission of broadening documentary culture by bringing these films directly to the general public to develop a diverse audience for the non-fiction narrative."

Newly appointed Director of Ambulante California, Christine Davila confirmed the documentary Cesar's Last Fast will be the very first film to be presented at the Ambulante California Film Festival at a special free community screening in Los Angeles in May. "It really could not be more fitting and representative of the programming vision and local context we have in mind for Ambulante California than to inaugurate our California launch with this insightful look at one of our iconic bi-cultural American political leaders.Cesar's Last Fast epitomizes the type of film we deem is crucial to support by bringing it directly to the communities to carve out a space for engagement and the dialogue it sparks. We are looking forward to co-representing the film and creating and inspiring social cinema intervention with the public at large"

Ambulante California is made possible in part through the Ford Foundation. The organization is currently seeking the rest of their funding through their fiscal sponsorship with the International Documentary Association (Ida). Fortes adds, "We are extremely grateful to the Ford Foundation and the Ida for their support in this critical development phase." We also want to thank the Consulate of Mexico in Utah for their support.

The Ambulante California Film Festival tour will run from September 21 to October 4 across the Greater Los Angeles area and each day it will offer a free screening at a different venue, from universities, high schools, and museums, to community centers, parks, and makeshift outdoor spaces. Expanding on Ambulante's global mission, Ambulante California is the first official attempt to establish a long-term presence of Ambulante outside of Latin America. A crowd-funding campaign will be launched in the spring, along with an open submissions call for California-produced documentary short films, a selection of which will be presented as a highlight of the festival. The overall strategy is to make the development of the festival highly interactive by inviting the public to take part in the shaping of the festival. One of the ways to get involved is to vote on which places the Ambulante tour should consider stopping at to put on a screening event.

Ambulante

Ambulante is a non-profit organization that focuses on supporting and promoting documentary film as a tool for social and cultural transformation. Founded in Mexico in 2005 by Gael García Bernal, Diego Luna, and Pablo Cruz, Ambulante brings documentary films and training programs to places where they are rarely available in order to create a participative, informed and critical public, cultivate new forms of expression, and encourage debate in Mexico and abroad.

Each year, Ambulante organizes an international film festival that tours Mexico for three months. Ambulante presents over 100 documentaries, invites more than 100 guests from Mexico and abroad, and holds screenings in over 150 venues. Ambulante’s objective is to promote documentary film within Mexico and reach a broader audience by screening films in a wide array of venues.

Ambulante is currently the largest documentary film festival in Mexico. It includes film screenings, workshops, talks, seminars, symposiums, networking panels, documentary theater, drive-in cinema, and a showcase of documentaries at the Ibero-American Music Festival Vive Latino held in Mexico City. Ambulante opens up different ways of experiencing and understanding documentary film. It is a non-competitive film festival, and over 60% of its program is free.

Additionally, Ambulante Beyond aims to train new filmmakers from Latin America who have limited access to the resources that would allow them to share their stories with a wider audience. Through modular workshops designed to meet the specific needs of its participants, Ambulante Beyond fosters independent production and alternative forms of aesthetic expression so that stories can be told from a unique cultural perspective without being constrained by conventional storytelling models.

Watch: Michael Pena Fights for Rights in Second 'Cesar Chavez' Trailer

We've seen an initial trailer for the biopic on labor activist Cesar Chavez, and the film was given the somewhat self-important title of Cesar Chavez: An American Hero. However, it seems the marketing department found out that title was doing too well, because the film is now just going by Cesar Chavez in the new trailer. It's Crash and American Hustle star Michael Pena in the lead as the famed civil rights leader and labor organizer torn between life as a husband and father and a commitment to getting a living wage for farm workers. John Malkovich, America Ferrera and Rosario Dawson also star in the film. Here's the new trailer for Diego Luna's Cesar Chavez, originally from Yahoo: Cesar Chavez is directed by Diego Luna (director of Abel, star of The Terminal, Y Tu Mamá También) and written by Keir Pearson (Hotel Rwanda).
