Urban Distribution International showcases My Little Princess
Founded in 2004 as Umedia and having regularly expanded by showcasing titles in its line-up at major festivals (including Paula Markovitch’s Prize [+see also:
film profile] in competition at this year’s Berlinale), the French sales company headed by Frédéric Corvez was renamed Urban Distribution International at the end of March. This new name, coupled with an expansion into theatrical distribution, will be inaugurated in style at the Film Market at the 64th Cannes Film Festival where the company has two titles selected in the different sections.
On the Croisette, Urban Distribution International will sell Brazilian duo Marco Dutra and Juliana Rojas’s Hard Labor, to be shown in the Un Certain Regard selection (which brought success for the French seller last year, whose October won the Jury Prize).
The company will also sell Eva Ionesco’s French film My Little Princess [+see also:
film profile] (see news), starring Isabelle Huppert. This debut feature, which will be presented as a special screening for the 50th anniversary of International Critics’ Week (SIC), will have a special showing on May 16 at the Palais des Festivals.
