Veteran programmer Tony Watts has slotted two Cannes market titles into the upcoming inaugural Niagara Integrated Film Festival (NIFF) in Ontario, Canada.
Watts, who serves as director of programming for the inaugural NIFF, has picked up Ian Gabriel’s Four Corners from South Africa and Jim Mickle’s Cold In July (pictured).
Four Corners was the official South African selection for the Oscars earlier this year and is a coming-of-age crime drama set amid gang culture. Gabriel will attend NIFF.
Crime drama Cold In July is based on the cult novel of the same name by author Joe R Lansdale and will open in the US through IFC.
The festival is set to run from June 19-22.
