Philippe Bober's production and sales outfit Coproduction Office, which unveils Kornel Mundruczo's Delta in competition in Cannes this week, has taken on sales duties on a handful of other titles in official selection.
The company is handling Ruben Östlund's Swedish tragicomedy Involuntary, screening in Un Certain Regard.
All rights are available excluding Norway and Sweden. Coproduction Office has also picked up Afterschool by Antonio Campos.
Screening in Un Certain Regard, this is a drama about a young American student at an elite East Coast school who captures on camera the tragic death of two classmates.
Campos, now 24, won plaudits for his short film, Buy It Now, about a teenage girl's attempts to auction her virginity on EBay.
Coproduction Office is handling all rights excluding North America (which are being taken care of by Submarine Entertainment.)
As already announced, Coproduction Office will be selling British director Thomas Clay's Soi Cowboy (also in Un Certain regard.)
Bober confirmed that the version of Mundruczo's Delta is significantly shorter and more polished than the version that screened at the Hungarian Film Week earlier this year. 'The film is now well-finished,' Bober, who is already fielding offers on the project, commented.
Here in Cannes, Coproduction Office is handling two animated projects, Belgian cult title Panic In Town by Stephane Aubier and Vincent Patar and Heinrich Sabl's Memory Hotel. Both are in post-production and will be ready next year.
Further down the line, Coproduction Office is supporting young Austrian auteur Jessica Hausner's new feature Lourdes, which is currently in production and comes billed as 'the story of a miracle.'
It is likely to be ready by early 2010. Meanwhile, readying to shoot is Dau, the latest feature from Ilya Khrzhanovsky (the director of 4)
This is about Nobel Prize winning nuclear physicist Lev Landau. Coproduction Office is coproducing and selling both projects.
