Bavaria Film International (BFI) has picked up world sales rights for Spanish filmmaker Cesc Gay's In The City (En La Ciudad), the follow-up to his internationally successful Krampack.

Starring Monica Lopez, Eduard Fernandez and Leonor Watling, the tragicomedy about a group of friends who gradually discover the truth about one another has already been invited to screen in competition at San Sebastian and is likely to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival beforehand.

In The City, which was produced by Marta Esteban and Gerardo Herrero of the Barcelona-based production house Messidor Films, is the third Spanish film to be picked up by BFI following its acquisitions of Jaime Rosales' Las Horas Del Dia (Fipresci Award winner in Cannes) and Santiago Loza's Extrano (Rotterdam Tiger Award winner).

BFI has four new films screening - at the forthcoming Locarno Film Festival: Soenke Wortmann's The Miracle Of Bern, Dominque de Rivaz 's Jagged Harmonies - Bach vs Frederick II, Martin Reitman's The Magic Gloves and Kim Ki-duk's Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter...and Spring
