LevelK at Cannes Film Festival 2019

Dear Friends,

We're very excited to bring you our lineup for this year's edition of the Cannes Film Festival.

Screening in Cannes is THE EXCEPTION directed by Jesper W. Nielsen (Borgen), a chilling Danish thriller based on Christian Jungersen's international bestseller (picked as Editor's Choice in The New York Times) and starring Sidse Babett Knudsen (Borgen, Westworld), Danica Curcic (Department q: The Absent One), Amanda Collin (A Horrible Woman) and Lene Maria Christensen (Terribly Happy). This highly anticipated thriller explores the psychology of evil and how ordinary people can commit unspeakable acts of cruelty. Danish release on August 29th 2019 by SF. Watch the intense promo here.

Our lineup also includes the upcoming Danish horror film BREEDER. The film centres around a young couple trapped in a nightmarish experiment to find the solution for eternal youth. BREEDER is directed by Jens Dahl, director of 3 Things (2017) and co-writer of Nicolas Winding Refn's Pusher (1996). Shooting starts in September 2019, and the local release is planned for fall 2020 with LevelK and Blockbuster as Danish distributors. We have the script available.

We also present FAT FRONT, a powerful documentary following four Scandinavian women pioneering the fat-activist movement promoting body positivity, challenging traditional beauty standards and freeing themselves from the guilt and shame of being fat. The film will have a theatrical event release on October 3rd with LevelK as the distributor. To see a clip collection from the film, click here.

In Cannes, we will show a promo of H IS FOR HAPPINESS, a vibrant Australian family film with heartfelt humor and a charming cast. It is the promising feature film debut of director John Sheedy and stars Miriam Margoyals (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) and Richard Roxburgh (Hacksaw RidgeMoulin Rouge). Universal is the Australian distributor, with local release set for 2020 TBC. H IS FOR HAPPINESS is supported by the MIFF Premiere Fund.

We look forward to seeing you at the Scandinavian Terrace, 1st floor, 55 La Croisette!
