The European Film Market of the 69th Berlin Film Festival looks set to be a money-spinner for Films Boutique. Indeed, the Berlin-based sales agent is heading to the festival with one Golden Bear contender and a film that will premiere in Panorama.
Spearheading the company’s line-up is Denis Côté’s entry in the Main Competition, Ghost Town Anthology. The director, whose Vic + Flo Saw a Bear also competed for the Golden Bear at the 2013 edition of the Berlinale and won the Alfred Bauer Prize, is returning to the gathering with a movie that centres on the impact that the death of a teenager in a car accident has on the inhabitants of a small town.
Also sparkling on Films Boutique’s Berlinale slate is Michela Occhipinti’s Flesh Out [+leggi anche:

Furthermore, the company will be premiering two films at the European Film Market: Wayne Blair’s comedy Top End Wedding, which follows a soon-to-be-married couple that embarks on a journey through Australia in order to find a missing future in-law who is going through a mid-life crisis, and the Polish drama Dolce Fine Giornata [+leggi anche:
