Kocsis, Mundruczo and Tarr set sights on the Croisette

Three Hungarian directors are well-placed among the contenders for selection at the 63rd Cannes Film Festival (May 12-23, 2010).

According to our information, young filmmaker Ágnes Kocsis already has a place in the Directors’ Fortnight or the Un Certain Regard section with her second feature: Adrienn Pál [+see also:

, Kocsis is set to continue her Cannes career with this film produced by Ferenc Pusztai (Producer on the Move 2007) for Hungarian company KMH Film, in co-production with France’s Cinéma Defacto, Austria’s Freibeuter Film and Holland’s Isabella Films.

(see news). Produced by Proton Cinema in co-production with Germany’s Essential Filmproduktion, Austria’s KGP Produktion, alongside Hungarian-based Filmpartners and Laokoon Film, the title is sold internationally by The Coproduction Office.

Béla Tarr’s The Turin Horse [+see also:

(see news) will also vie for selection in extremis. Interrupted by this winter’s adverse weather conditions, the shoot has just wrapped. As the director’s style facilitates speeded-up editing, the feature is expected to be viewed by Cannes selectors in the upcoming days.

Co-produced by Hungary (T.T.Filmmuhely), Switzerland (Vega Film Production), Germany (Zero Fiction Film) and France (Movie Partners In Motion Film), The Turin Horse thus has every chance of a première on the Croisette, where Tarr was selected in competition in 2007 with his previous work The Man from London [+see also:
