Sumptuous Line-up for Celluloid Dreams
The Cannes Festival already looks promising for Celluloid Dreams. With four features selected for the Official Competition in its line-up, the French foreign sales agency headed by Hengameh Panahi is positioning itself as an irresistible attraction for the forthcoming Cannes Film Market and is banking on Lemming [+see also:

The international sales team, led by b>Tanja Meissner can also count on two films with a big potential in the official selection: Kirikou and the Savage Beasts by Michel Ocelot (special screening) and The Time That Remains [+see also:
film profile] by François Ozon (Un certain regard). And the parallel sections look equally good with Factotum by Norwegian Bent Hamer and Room by Kyle Henry in the Director’s Fortnight, not forgetting the American phenomenon Me and You and Everyone We Know by Miranda July at the Critic’s Week.
Worth noting too some other titles in the French company’s line-up, while still awaiting the revelation of new projects as yet kept secret, including the Cannes première for the Italian feature Cuore sacro by Ferzan Ozpetek, the Greek-Turkish co-production Hostage [+see also:
