Cate Blanchett’s latest film Carol, which got a standing ovation at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, will have its Australian premiere as part of this year’s Adelaide Film Festival.

Directed by Todd Haynes and set in Manhattan in the 1950s, it tells of the relationship of wealthy and married socialite Carol (played by Blanchett) and department store assistant Therese Belivet (played by Rooney Mara).

“I think the studios have a kind of repeated amnesia about the fact that people actually want to see films about women and they can be profitable,” Haynes told 891 ABC Adelaide.

Some critics are talking of Oscar hopes based on Blanchett’s role.

“It’s just an incredible performance from Cate. I was there is Cannes to see the world premiere and I am just so delighted that we can bring it here to Adelaide,” festival director Amanda Duthie said.

“We have 10 Australian premieres, including the completely magnificent Carol starring Cate Blanchett, in our feature competition and a whole range also in the documentary competition.”

More than 180 films will screen during the Adelaide Film Festival from October 15 to 25. [Source]

Australian actor Cate Blanchett is to be awarded a BFI Fellowship by the UK’s lead film agency, the British Film Institute, at this year’s London film festival.

The BFI Fellowship – not to be confused with a similarly titled honour given by Bafta (the British Academy of Film and Television Arts) – is a lifetime achievement award given by the BFI board of governors and presented for “outstanding achievement in film and television”. There have been some 80 previous recipients, including Al Pacino, Judi Dench, Mike Leigh and, most recently, Mel Brooks.

Blanchett, who was born and brought up in Melbourne, Australia, shot to international fame in 1997 when she starred opposite Ralph Fiennes in the adaptation of Peter Carey’s Booker-prize winning novel Oscar and Lucinda. She went on to win a string of awards, including Oscars for best supporting actress (The Aviator in 2004) and best actress (Blue Jasmine in 2013). She also played the elf queen Galadriel in all six Tolkien films directed by Peter Jackson. Aside from film work, Blanchett has taken on numerous theatre roles, and spent five years as co-CEO and artistic director of Sydney Theatre Company with her husband, playwright Andrew Upton.

Two of Blanchett’s most recent films – Carol, a romance adapted from Patricia Highsmith’s novel The Price of Salt (which got a five-star review from Peter Bradshaw), and Truth, about American TV journalist Mary Mapes – will screen at the London film festival, where Blanchett is due to receive her award on 17 October.

Cate Blanchett is attached to star in an authorized biopic of Hollywood legend Lucille Ball that Aaron Sorkin is set to write for Escape Artists, TheWrap has learned.

The film will chronicle Ball’s 20-year marriage to Desi Arnaz, with whom she starred on the classic TV sitcom “I Love Lucy.” Ball had two children with Arnaz before they divorced in 1960. She married Gary Morton the following year.

Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz Jr. will produce with Escape Artists, whose executive Jenna Block will oversee development of the project on behalf of the Sony-based company.

A representative for Blanchett declined to comment, while a representative for Sorkin did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Blanchett won the first of two Academy Awards for playing another Hollywood icon, Katharine Hepburn, in Martin Scorsese‘s “The Aviator.” She’s gearing up for another Oscar run thanks to her acclaimed performance in Todd Haynes‘ lesbian romance “Carol.” Blanchett also stars opposite Robert Redford in the Toronto-bound drama “Truth” and co-stars in a pair of upcoming Terrence Malick movies.

The Hamptons International Film Festival has tapped James Vanderbilt’s Truth as its opening night film.

The film, which stars Robert Redford, Cate Blanchett, Topher Grace and Elisabeth Moss, will screen Oct. 8 in East Hampton. Based on a true story, Truth centers on news anchor Dan Rather (Redford) during his final days at CBS News when he broadcast a report about how President George W. Bush relied on privilege and family connections to avoid fighting in the Vietnam War.

Sony Pictures Classics will release the film in theaters Oct. 16.

“We had the pleasure of having James Vanderbilt serve as a mentor in our Screenwriters Lab back in 2009, and we’re thrilled to have him back as the director of our Opening Night film,” HIFF artistic director David Nugent said. “He’s made a sharp and insightful film with wonderful performances that makes audiences consider the ever-changing relationship between journalism and politics in today’s media.”

This year’s Narrative Competition feature films include Matt Sobel’s Take Me to the River, Ciro Guerra’s Embrace of the Serpent, Avishai Sivan’s Tikkun, Grimur Hakonarson’s Rams and Diasteme’s French Blood.

Screen Australia says actor will direct television series based on the story of a German-Australian woman who was wrongly detained as an illegal immigrant

Cate Blanchett is to make her first foray behind the camera, developing and directing a new television series, Stateless, based on the life of Cornelia Rau.

Rau, a German-Australian woman and former Qantas air hostess, attracted attention in 2005 after she escaped the controversial Sydney sect known as Kenja only to be held at the Baxter detention centre in South Australia as a suspected illegal immigrant.

As the national debate around immigration and detention continues to swirl in Australia, Blanchett could not have chosen a more topical subject for her debut.

“Stateless will be Cate Blanchett’s first venture into high-end TV,” said Screen Australia who is funding the script’s development by writer Elise McCredie.

“Inspired by the incredible true story of Cornelia Rau, Stateless is a powerful and timely series about identity, belonging and the extraordinary lengths people will go to find their place in the world,” the funding body said.

CATE Blanchett makes no bones about it. Returning to a theatre rehearsal room when you have a young baby is hard.

She and husband Andrew Upton adopted baby Edith from the US earlier this year and have said that they and their three sons are “besotted”.

But as everyone knows, caring for a baby is tiring.

“I feel a bit sleep-deprived,” admits Blanchett.

“But you have to work with whatever state you’re in and turn it in to a positive. Sometimes, it can be good to be a bit tired in a rehearsal room because your defences are down, your guard is down.”

Blanchett is about to co-star with Richard Roxburgh in The Present, adapted by Upton from Anton Chekhov’s sprawling first play Platonov, and playing at the Roslyn Packer Theatre from August 4.

Blanchett and Roxburgh also performed together in Upton’s 2010 adaptation of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya, wowing audiences and critics alike in Sydney, Washington and New York.

As you’d expect, their reunion has made The Present one of the hottest tickets in the Sydney Theatre Company’s 2015 season.

Oscar winning actress Cate Blanchett will appear as the star attraction at a major fundraising event for the opposition’s most senior woman in Federal Parliament – Tanya Plibersek.

Blanchett is billed to appear at the Margaret Whitlam dinner in Sydney next week (June 19th, 2015). The online promotional material for the fundraiser highlights Blanchett’s climate change activism.

“As an actor, story teller, climate change activist and leading voice for women in public life, Cate Blanchett brings a unique and interesting experience to our event,” the website says.

“As co-artistic director of Sydney Theatre Company, Cate not only helped shape the artistic vision of the company but took on a responsibility for the company to address their impact on the climate.”

Conservatives, including Federal Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce, singled out Blanchett for criticism when she and other prominent Australians urged ordinary voters to support a price on carbon in a national advertising campaign in 2011.

The Coalition argued a price on carbon would push up the cost of living for poorer Australians. Labor said the compensation built into the scheme would more than recompense those on the lowest incomes.

Blanchett also spoke at the state funeral for former prime minister Gough Whitlam last year and said she owed her tertiary education to his policies. The speech is said to have angered former Liberal prime minister John Howard who says access to free university studies occurred before Whitlam came to power and is under-recognised.

Cate Blanchett completed a trip to Lebanon with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to visit Syrian refugee camps in the country, Blanchett’s official website said.

The award-winning actress’  trip comes ahead of World Refugee Day on 20 June.

Blanchett visited the Mazboud Community Centre where she met fourteen-year-old Syrian refugee Ahmed.

Ahmad, who left Syria as a younger schoolboy, came to Lebanon to work in multiple jobs before joining his uncle at his bakery shop, making and selling pastries.

During her stay, Blanchett attended a theatre performance put together by Ahmad and other young Syrian refugees.

The performance tackled the issue of early marriage in the Syrian refugee community.

Blanchett’s website features a short video that documents the actress’ trip. The video includes scenes of Ahmad telling his story, snippets of the theatre performance, and Blanchett addressing the plight of Syrian refugees. [Source]

SK-II invited Global Ambassador Cate Blanchett to Singapore to celebrate the launch of two new products – the Mid-Day and Mid-Night Miracle Essences.

Making her first ever appearance in Singapore, multiple Academy Award-winning actress/SK-II Global Ambassador Cate Blanchett candidly shared her beauty secrets with the media. Before making her appearance at the media session, Cate made a virtual one on the SK-II #changedestiny Google+ Hangout, where she hung out with her fans from Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Los Angeles, USA. Hosted by celebrity personality Utt, Cate shared her thoughts on pushing boundaries in life, going beyond one’s limitations, and even beauty tips from her grandmother!

As a 46-year old, here are some inspiring quotes made by Cate during her Google+ Hangout session:

On being limited by the skin you are born with:

“I don’t like the word limited, I think you’ve got to work with what you got. And I think trying to look like someone else or trying to be like someone else, or trying to have someone else’s career is not a good philosophy for any part of your life. But if you work with what you have got, and consistently stay with a range of products that work, which for me is SK-II, then I think you can totally change the results.” 

On advice for women venturing into new challenges and breaking stereotypes:

“Well, there’s no formula, really. Especially when you’re in the creative field, I think there’s a lot of parental pressure. My mum did (get worried) as well. But I think that, you’ve got to desperately want to do it. If you’re not gripped by a passion to do it, particularly for the creative field then you’ve got to ask yourself some hard questions. And I always think about it in 5-year blocks so for me, that helped me not get bogged down by what would seem like an immediate failure or an immediate roadblock.”
