Cannes films to open in Portuguese theatres
Dheepan by Jacques Audiard

Beyond the glamour of the red carpet – with or without high-heels controversies – Cannes is a world of business, gathering together professionals from all over the world. Portuguese distributors did not miss their chance to get the most out of the event and returned home with their suitcases full of titles that are expected to open theatrically at some point this year.

Indie distribution outfit Midas Filmes will take care of the distribution of three award-winning titles, including Jacques Audiard’s Palme d’Or winner, Dheepan [+see also:
