Este artículo está disponible en inglés.

Propelled by a blazing line-up of 20 titles, French international sales agent Charades is getting ready and full of ambition for its double appointment at the 74th Cannes Film Festival’s Marché du Film (running 6 - 17 July); namely the Pre-Cannes Screenings (online from 12 to 25 June) and the festival’s physical market (running 6 – 15 July).

The team composed of Yohann Comte, Carole Baraton, Pierre Mazars and Constantin Briest will notably kick off presales on three new films, including Oh My Goodness!, the 9th feature film by Laurent Tirard (The Speech [+lee también:

). Recently shot and starring Valérie Bonneton, Camille Chamoux, Claire Nadeau, Guilaine Londez, Denmark’s Sidse Babett Knudsen, and François Morel and Louise Malek in its cast, the film revolves around four nuns and their novice who live in a small convent in the French countryside. They’re an unruly yet affectionate bunch who see miracles everywhere and know the Bible like the back of their hand. Determined to save the run-down retirement home in their village, they decide to take part in a bike race. The group are far from athletic, but God works in mysterious ways... Produced by Les Films sur Mesure, co-produced by M6 Films and pre-purchased by Canal+ and Ciné+, the feature film will be distributed in France via Le Pacte.

) and Alberto Vázquez’s animated film Unicorn Wars (uniting the production prowess of Spanish firms Abano Producións and Uniko Estudio Creativo and France’s Autour de Minuit and Schmuby), clips of which were unveiled on Wednesday during the Annecy International Animated Film Festival’s Work in Progress event.

As for the online Pre-Cannes Screenings, Charades is set to show six films, including three market premieres, two of which are travelling directly from competitions hosted by Tribeca (the documentary The Scars of Ali Boulala [+lee también:

The sales agent will also press on with sales on six further titles (four of which will be screened online, including Boiling Point by English director Philip Barantini, and Toni Garcia’s animated film Dogtanian And The Three Muskehounds), among which the wonderful Skies of Lebanon [+lee también:

But Charades will clearly, first and foremost, be counting on a hand of three aces made up of three titles sold on the basis of a promoreel at the Pre-Cannes Screenings, which are set to enjoy their world premieres within the Cannes Film Festival showcase: Petrov’s Flu [+lee también:
