Ryan Kampe and Sylvain Tron of New York-based Visit Films will commence sales next week on Small Town Murder Songs and Look, Stranger.
Ed Gass-Donnelly wrote and directed Small Town Murder Songs, which will receive its world premiere in the Contemporary World Cinema section.
The modern gothic tale of crime and redemption stars Peter Stormare as an aging police officer from a small Ontario Mennonite town who hides a violent past until a local murder upsets the calm of his newly reformed life. Aaron Poole, Jill Hennessey and Martha Plimpton round out the key cast.
Look, Stranger is written and directed by Arielle Javitch and screens in the Discovery section. The story centres on a woman who makes the dangerous journey home from a refugee camp and stars acclaimed Romanian actress Anamaria Marinca. Lisa Muskat produced.
Javitch was supported in production by the Sundance Institute / Anneberg Foundation, Cinereach, New York State Council On The Arts, and the Berlinale Talent Campus.
Visit Films will also be supporting a number of other recent titles, including Sarajevo competition winner Tilva Rosh, Locarno competition title Cold Weather, and Cannes Critic’s Week premiere The Myth Of The American Sleepover.
